re: ARABELLA THE WEAVER
transmission source: Steward Archives
Once upon a time, the ancient and evil Queen Arachna used her cunning to trap people and creatures she thought useful to her, and her venom to render them helpless as she sucked their hopes and dreams from within them to keep for her own.
A descendant of Arachna, Arabella the Weaver cannot find peace without atonement, which she strives to make by archiving the dreams of her community in a thing of beauty. As everyone knows, hope multiplies itself by orders of magnitude, and so, rather than taking dreams by force and using them to her own ends, Arabella works to help all whom she encounters to collect their own hopes and dreams, and with their permission, adds them to the Web of Understanding.
