The Bride of Nine Spiders can release a swarm of ravenous spiders from her chest or mouth; the spiders can subdue opponents with venom or ensnare them in webbing. Telepathic, the Bride can communicate with others via their dreams.
She is also a supremely skilled martial artist; her arsenal of moves includes the vaulting mantis spine-snap, mistress of all agonies, unseen venom strike, sweeping hands of the clock, considered venom strike, mountain does not flee, taming the wayward goat, and claiming the branch.
The Bride of Nine Spiders' predecessor during the previous Tournament of the Heavenly Cities was active in the '20s and '30s. She was a patron of the Lightning Lords of Nepal, and fought Orson Randall.
