Deep within the Sang-La Mountains, in a valley almost entirely isolated from the outside world, a cluster of small villages lives in constant fear of the Youkai. These are creatures and phenomena that cannot be explained by the elders, the laws of nature, or any application of common sense. They simply should not exist -- yet they do. If the villagers were brave enough to venture beyond their sturdy, bamboo walls, they might discover a shadowed entrance tucked within a fold of the valley wall. An entrance with foreign, sinister runes carved around its mouth. And within that entrance, a cave, leading down, down, down, until the cold stone begins to grow warm. Then hot. Then blistering. It is a gateway to All Hells, and from there the Youkai scuttle forth from their corrupted dwellings to take the shape of nightmares.
Youkai Arachna is a creature of playful mischief. She thrives on the combination of glee and anxiety that comes with wildly popular Newerthian games such as Hide and Seek, Catch Me if You Can, and probably her all-time favorite, Save Me from the Spiders. Slightly coy and bashful when she first meets a playmate, she quickly forms a lifelong attachment with them and decides they will play together forever and ever. When her playmates feel otherwise due to exhaustion, terror, or blood loss, Youkai Arachna's nightmarish temper reveals itself. She typically regrets these moments, when she tears off legs to prevent someone from running away or binds them in a suffocating web until they realize how much fun they're having. But her sorrow is quickly forgotten when a new playmate comes along and the game begins anew.
