the Orb Weaver
The deferred to de facto leader of the cult of the Swarm who has his seat in Lilly’s Town. He directed Caelon and Gorda towards Glasdrigal and assigned Melwyn to go with them. His seat is a continuously changing temple in the centre of the town where priests and acolytes study and meditate while constantly rebuilding and renovating the labrynthine building.
When the Mother arrived, her forces battled with the Orb Weaver’s, leaving him unprepared for an attack by the undead who overran the city and animated the corpses of the faithful, including his own. He managed to regain his freedom and take control of the undead of Lilly’s town and now sits in the old temple, a nexus of spider silk, controlling his skeletal minions like a host of marionettes.
