Arachne is a fictional character from the Wild Cards series of books.

Arachne can extrude silk from her bulbous body and weave it swiftly into her famous spider-silk shawls. Her daughters sell them to tourists in Jokertown (who don't know how they are made). Their booth on Henry Street has an array of delicately dyed scarves and shawls.

The trembling, almost transparent fabric earns Arachne a good living supplying the scarves to Saks and Neiman-Marcus.

She is politically active and even travelled down to the 1988 Democratic National Convention when Gregg Hartmann was nominated.

Wild Card TraitsEdit
