Paraspiders are large spiders with a powerful venom created by Caltabactos
Paraspiders are about 4 feet across, and 2 feet tall. Unlike most spiders, they glow a bright red color, and have large and visible fangs. Their 8 legs each have spikes on them, but this is more stylic than functional. These measurements are for the female spiders. Male paraspiders are about half as large, have a brown coloring, and have comparatively smaller fangs. Paraspider eggs are aroung the size of a mouse, and glow red, regardless whether it will bear a male or female.
The venom of a paraspider is exceptionally dangerous. It has a mind-altering effect that eventually causes the victim to slowly lose its mind, until it becomes incapacitated. While incapacitated, it glows red, marking it as future food for paraspiders. This is necesary, because paraspiders lack the fangs and mandibles necesary for consuming live prey. This venom can be milked from the spiders to be used against others. It is, however, generally less effective against races with sufficient mental abilities, and will only slow down their mental processes.
