Exalted: Tales of the Dreaming Sea
The Copper Spiders
A syndicate of information-brokers and thaumaturges, the Copper Spiders take their names from an old nickname for the sorcerous Anathema to inspire fear and superstition. This all female group has a reputation for being witches and demon-worshipers, some of which may be true. Their curious and seemingly inhuman leader, Grandmother Ulo, is believed to be demon-blooded and possibly a thrall of some greater Malfean mistress. Many fear the Copper Spiders may be Yozi cultists hiding in plain sight. They certainly wouldn’t be the first to do so in the Nighted City. Those who’ve obtained a rare audience with Grandmother Ulo often come away with a different opinion, believing her to be something far, far stranger that they are bound to never speak of.
