Spider Keeper[]

Don't worry about my little eight-legged friend. She won't hurt you. Not unless I tell her to...

Prerequisite: Worship either Lolth or Arachne

Most creatures view spiders with revulsion. To you, however, spiders are the perfect hunters; creatures supremely adapted to their environment and hunting style. You view these perfect creatures with awe, dedicating yourself to the study of these creatures. Your knowledge of spiders has lead you to befriend one.
