Spiderlings (Basic Familiar Subtype)
What is a Spiderling?
Spiderlings are arachnid-like creatures. They come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes and can be found all over Prism Vale, though they are most commonly encountered in the mysterious caverns of the Giant Canyon of Azul Island. Spiderlings are not inherently evil or malicious creatures as some young beanlings would expect. They are mostly neutral beings that live in the more secluded areas of Prism Vale, they are generally shy creatures, usually opting to hide when spotted. Their reputation for being evil comes from the fact that a lot of their kind has been infected with the Corruption that broke out on Azul Island.
They eyes are a useful ingredient in many potions, particularly potions that cause changes. It is not recommend to take a spiderling as a familiar if you are an adventurer as they have an increased risk of being corrupted or killed for their eyes.
Signs of Corruption
Spiderlings are somewhat weak-minded which is why they easily become infected by the Corruption. The infection causes the spiderlings to become highly aggressive, which is why so many adventurers report being attacked by them in the Giant Canyon. Common signs of infection include strange markings (typically in the form of corrupted runes/writing) and red glints or glowing red eyes.
*Spiderlings are not a playable species in the game, but can be used as companions*
