Arachnoids

From Paragon Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Overview

Created during Project FURY, this group consists of former Arachnos soldiers injected with the drug Venom, which itself is a synthesis of Lord Recluse's own blood. The results were only partially successful, resulting in creatures who are incredibly strong but monstruous. These pitiful wretches have had their vocal cords removed to help keep the secrets of their origin safe and serve Arachnos as foot soldiers.


In-game storyline:

The Arachnoids are monstrosities that infest the subterranean labyrinth called "The Web" under the isle of Warburg as well as sections of Grandville.

Arachnoids are part of Project Fury as discovered during Dr. Forrester's mission arc of the same name. They are former Arachnos soldiers "volunteered" for a super-soldier program. They are injected with "venom" from Lord Recluse himself, causing horrible mutations at the reward of immense strength and capabilities. Some have their vocal capabilities "removed", presumably to prevent the release of the knowledge of their origin!

Their true nature is also known about by other factions within the game. The Malta Operative splinter cell known as the Scorpion Gang threatens to reveal the secret to the world, only to be taken down forcibly by Arbiter Daos at the cost of his own son.
