In the chaos that reigned during the end of the Pre-Creation, Aranea stole a handful of primordial beings and brought them deep within the earth, where she experimented on them. She formed twisted creatures from the beings, torturing them and molding horrible monstrosities from the deepest darkness within the ground, until finally she had made the Dark Elves, evil creatures with hearts filled with hatred and deceit.
Aranea often appears as a pale and ethereal female with pointed ears and fragile features. But where her lower body should be connected to her torso is the thorax and abdomen of a monstrous spider. Her hands are clawed and chitinous, and her eyes glitter with a thousand red pupils.
