Narleth are eight foot tall humanoids that blend the traits of spiders and humanoids. They have four muscular arms; each arm wields a powerful short sword. They have multiple red eyes and sharp dripping mandibles.

The name Narleth means “silken death” in the elven tongue. They may have been created as warriors during the Divine War, or they may be mutants that arose in the aftermath. Regardless of their origin they became an incredible menace to elves in the days following the Divine War. The narleth haunted the woods and snuck into elven homes to murder their children. Finally the elves banded together and hunted the narleth almost to extinction. There are only a few narleth left, brooding in lonely caverns or ancient ruins. They delight in causing misery on anyone who stumbles into their lair.
There exists a sect that amongst the Narleth that separated long ago from the host. They formed tight bonds took no part in the vile actions against the elves. Though not in any way good, they have different goals and motivations than the remainder of the brood and seek deeper understanding and control of lost places dedicated to their spider kings and queens The Eight Eyes of Vhaeraun.
