Ariana Blair [No middle name]Age:
Intelligent - Ariana’s got a very good memory and problem solving skills, landing her a spot in Thallium. She’s only really good with literal and factual problems though, such as memorization and math; problems with no answer give her serious trouble and a headache.
Computer skills - Ariana is a talented hacker and programmer and knows her way around computers. She is self taught and does still have quite a bit to learn, but knows how to do much more than a normal computer user.
Athletic - Ariana’s species have a reputation for having high physical strength so it comes as no shock that Ariana’s quite athletic. She also seems to get an energy boost from all the food she eats.
Patient - Ariana is very very patient. While this certainly comes as a shock to most due to her active personality, Ariana would be able to sit staring at a blank wall for hours on end without even fidgeting, so long as she had a motive.
Lack of motivation - She’s very very lazy and just doesn’t care about most anything. This will often result in her not doing things if she doesn’t feel like it or not completing things due to a disinterest, including school related things.
Lack of self-control - Self explanatory; Ariana has no self control whatsoever. She generally tries to suppress this by biting her finger or fingernail. The best way to get Ariana to stop is to threaten her with something (not violence, though, as Ariana enjoys physical activities and is aware of her natural abilities).
Stubbornness - Normally this wouldn’t be a weakness, however Ariana takes stubborn to the extreme. It’s almost impossible to get Ariana to change her mind or opinion once she becomes set on it.
Lustful - While Ariana is extremely lustful, she subconsciously connects lust with hunger, and so, by extension, she lusts for the things she wants to eat. It’s fairly odd to understand, so the best way I can explain it to you is by giving you an example of how Arachne’s seduce their prey, which are men they find attractive, and then eat them.
A loud and straightforward girl, Ariana is the type of person to say what’s on her mind, no matter the situation. She has a blatant lack of any shame as well, so it’s hard for her to get embarrassed. This also makes her a very carefree person, Ariana seeming to be off in her own little world a good chunk time. Ariana is fairly energetic and has perhaps a too-good sense of humour, laughing at most anything even if the situation deems it rather inappropriate. Ariana is very confident and has no problem standing up to or for things. Being someone who’s fairly comfortable with herself, insults have no effect on Ariana, who’ll just laugh at them. Flirting, however, is a different story. Ariana despises being flirted with, and when flirted with she’ll play along for a bit until she sees an opening and will strike with her best attempt to completely and utterly emotionally cripple whoever’s flirting with her. Why she hates being flirted with his unknown. Ariana may flirt from time to time, however it’s either a joke or because she’s genuinely attracted, the latter case meaning she wants to seduce and eat her target. History:
Ariana had a fairly normal life by Arachne standards. She was born in a cave on the outskirts of a town in Nevada to a beautiful and proud Arachne mother named Avarona and a human male who wasn’t destined to survive much longer. Human male fathers were common for Arachnes, being a mostly female species. Such a thing didn’t make the young Ariana any less Arachne.
Avarona was a good mother, taking care to educate her daughter in many fields, including Arachne duties, and was delighted to see her young girl learn so quickly and so well. Avarona, being the beautiful seductress that she was, was able to lure in enough prey (the prey being men) to support her and her daughter. Ariana was very proud of her mother and if she had had any Arachne friends, she probably would have boasted about her “amazing mother who could lure any man and bring him to his knees”.
One day, Avarona was presented with a surprise. A human child was in the cave! But this child seemed a little odd; she called Avarona “mommy”.
“Ariana?” the spider woman called out in surprise.
“Yes mommy?” was the cheery response she got from the bright little human face. It wasn’t long until Avarona’s face lit up to match the little girl’s and the spider woman leaned down for a hug. “My little girl,” she cooed. Her daughter possessed the ability to shapeshift into a human! Such a rare talent was not wasted on a bright girl like Ariana, Avarona thought. Avarona made sure to tell her daughter all she about this ability and how to use it, knowing her precious Ariana would be able to make good use of this ability when catching prey. A beautiful upper body only got you so far when your lower half was a spider.
It wasn’t long until Ariana was old enough to go out into the human world for short periods of time to put her ability to the test. Ariana hadn’t ever tried it before, as she wasn’t a very rebellious child, since Avarona was a rather just and lenient mother. Ariana had not perfected her ability and still had some spider traits, ones that forced her to wear clothes that covered the traits up, which made Ariana very uncomfortable. Clothes felt weird on a girl who had been naked all of her life. (what? you think arachnes wear clothes?) Ariana had a wonderful first time in the human world, even if it didn’t go very smoothly; Ariana had tried to eat a few humans. Before that, though, Ariana had learned many things of the human culture, even if she didn’t quite understand it just yet. She was especially fascinated with these “computers” and made sure to learn all about them on her next visit.
Ariana soon got fairly accustomed to the human world, even if many problems arose. It was fascinating and new and exciting and had so many cool things and the humans just tasted so good (by this time Ariana was old enough to hunt on her own and had been doing so for a while). After going back to her mother’s cave for her monthly report (she was also living on her own), Avarona told her precious daughter, her pride and joy, of a college in Maine where she could learn to act as a human in a human environment. Despite having mastered her shapeshifting ability by this point, Ariana was excited to learn how to finally act like a human, as being seen as the “quirky and somewhat crazy and slightly cannibalistic lady” was starting to cause problems for Ariana. The two spiders worked on the younger one’s application in hopes she’d get accepted to the coveted college.
