- "This creature is far tougher and more massive than any of the other arachne."
- ―Jana T'bayr
Arachnes were arachnids native to Endor. A bio-engineered group also made their way to Talus, but these were mostly eradicated by a group of spacers working for the Corellian Security Force. A type of Arachne was also known to inhabit the Krayt Cult Cave on Tatooine, though they were probably imported to Tatooine from elsewhere.
Biology and appearanceEdit
Their fangs carried a strong but non-lethal poison. Several varieties of Arachne had the distinction of having ten legs.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, most of the gigantic Arachne spiders are defined as being an Angler. Yet the name is often misleading, because creatures such as the bone gnashers are defined as an Angler, despite being on Tatooine, where fishing for prey is virtually impossible.
