Cerebella bares the features of a tall and strong looking elven girl. She looks quite young, her skin hues in a bluish white tone although with little to fall short of in terms of her beautiful facial features. Her hair pairs a darken white web-like color and is pulled down in long locks of beautiful white dreaded hair. She bares light brown chestnut, hazel eyes and pearl white well kept teeth.
Upon close inspection those would notice the left upper part of her ear would be missing most people call the knife of elven ears. It would seem to be wrapped with a linen cloth although it would not take much of a keen medical sense to realize what had happened. On her neck would bare a large bite scar, two large pincer formed healed hole scars cascading between her neck and right shoulder. The scar would seem very deep although not fresh, it would be quite an old scar if anything once inspected.
A scarf is wrapped around her neck gentle tucked and buckled along the shoulder guards of her armor with a metal hoop. The scarf is quite the sight to behold. It would seem to be made purely of pure white spider silk, carefully knitted and rolled into a warm and delightful scarf in which small pieces of loose thread hang solemnly over her shoulder.
Upon her neck tucked underneath her scarf would be linked chain forged in an alchemical silver metal. Upon the chain necklace would bare an insignia to Eilistraee. Another ornament lies on the chain link as well although it would simply seem to be a spider webbed ball hooked on a metal hoop along the necklace. The silken webbed ball would occasionally bare a small mini spider traveling about the webbed ball ornament from time to time.

*Fight against and/or convert the forces of Lolth to her new pantheon.
*Convert all spider-kind, arachnid, and lolthites to join in her cause against lolth and take up a position under the pantheon of spiders for the beauty of their silk, unity of the spiders and strength of the swarm.
*Create a webbed-den, spider hatchery through natural means or divination in the name of Elliestree as to pro-create celestial spiders to combat the demonic spiders of Lolth.
* Due to a legend she heard from one of her village elders, Cerebella often sought after a way to become an Aranea, as she often craved a truer connection to spiderkind, beyond her divine one. (Source: http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Aranea)
*While Cerebella is very keen on her goals and acts upon herself as a graceful and formal being, upon the wild she tends to get as animalistic as her kin. Feasting upon prey under the moon, Becoming feral and untamed, and harbinging the more survival of the fittest aspect, and more importantly dancing upon the moon light with little clothing at all under her beautiful glistening webs.
*She tends to look at others naturally no matter what acts they may commit unless abruptly evil such as cold blooded murder. While not keen on following and more leading she does not see forbidden acts of necromancy or banned religious cults and rituals to be shunned rather she looks upon them as tools in which other people use to survive in this harsh world, so long as they do not use that tool to cause strife or suffering upon the living. She may also force her hand if in a way, it could affect her kin or the habitat her kin dwell in, and most likely will or will not get involved depending on how it would strengthen or weaken the arachnid-kind and the nature around them.
*Due to her vast study and knowledge of her animal practice, Cerebella does know of stories where goblins used spiders as mounts as well. She would most likely be keen on meeting a shaman or elder of a goblin tribe to learn more about their wisdom of taming and riding monstrous spiders and possibly aid them in task for this knowledge.
Chapter 1: Natural Habitat
Cerebella hails from the Far Forest, a small forest located near the High Forest of Northwestern Fearun. The village mainly housed elven and human families although the common commodity of other races such as halflings, gnomes, genasi would come by from time to time. In her upbringing she was raised within the village Saphromague bearing the name of the child of the village elders ‘Ezu’. In the Far Forest each village was deemed a clan, each clan bearing the rights and symbols of the animal they deemed fit them. The village of Saphromague was a druidic village under the symbol of the spider. The village held spiders normally as pets, symbols of worship and servants hauling things from place to place, up and down trees and through darkened caverns. Some built farms for the smaller species of spider to harvest their webs as silk for tailoring fine beautiful clothing. Others used the more giant monstrous spiders as mounts for hunting and battle. These were known as spider knights and were held in high standard upon the locals of Saphromague as master tames-men of the spider-kind gaining enough of their trust to allow them the luxury of being their steeds. Cerebella’s eyes always lit-up in delight as a child when seeing them often dreaming of doing the same one day herself and looking on at how proud her mother and father would be in such an accomplishment.
As Cerebella was raised as a young adult she was mostly under the guidance of her father to teach and train her optimally to be humble, proper and well spoken. She was raised and taught almost like a princess would be, learning the ins and outs of society, maintaining and clean and tidy appearance at all times, and looking upon those of the village in need of help with events. Cerebella always did what she was told by her father although secretly she never really fully enjoyed duties and responsibilities of being raised the daughter of the village elders.
Chapter 2: Silk & Sword
Soon enough things changed when she reached young adulthood. Her father saw it fit that even the daughter of an elder would need to learn the basics of combat. On her 86th year of life her father handed her a sword it would be the first Cerebella would come anywhere close to such a tool aside from seeing the common boys out on the outskirts of towns sparring and training with practice swords likely. Her father would train her twice a day of her swordsmanship, often times when she would do a well enough job on the lesson her father would reward her by teaching her the way of clerical divinations and enchantments to better her fighting style. Once her father was done with her during the day as night fell she would be sent to her mother outside of town. Her mother was a well versed healer, herbalist and druidic sage of the village often times she would take Cerebella into the wilds to allow her the true sight of the arachnid way and also to collect herbs and plant fibers for village medicines. As she walked through those forest it would be nothing short of beautiful. White silken spun webs glistening under the light of the moon, she had never seen anything so beautiful as those in her entire life, she saw those beautiful webs as jewels and fine luxury then any kind of nesting grounds, and often times would ask her mother for pieces of the webs in which she would collect every night that she traveled the Saphromague territory of the forest with her mother.
As time went by her mother often tried to teach Cerebella the way of the druidic divinations and spellcraft. Although being under the guidance of clerical divination under her fathers teaching she found druidic to be vastly more difficult and never had the knack for it as much as she tried. But she never gave up. . . Often times she would sneak out of her home in attempts to combine her weave of druidic and clergy together. . . Failure after Failure in these attempts would take up most of her nights plaguing herself with fatigue and lack of nourishment, until soon enough she was caught by her mother trying to do so in territory that was not claimed under her village rites which had been kept under control of the rival Lolth clerics nearby, a natural enemy to Saphromague and their culture. Her mother scared for her safety and afraid Cerebella would repent if shunned for her actions would do the unthinkable.
Chapter 3: Venom
On her 100th day of birth Cerebella’s mother would tell her to pack her things as they would be moving along a journey far from the village. This would be the first time Cerebella would be allowed to leave the grounds of her village under guidance and of course intrigued her to the fullest. As her and her mother left waving their goodbyes to her father with hugs and kisses they set off in the direction of the high forest. They traveled for days and nights walking the forest traveling through many sites and cities such as the Shining Falls, Karse and Elvenport. Finally after many weeks of travel they reached their destination. . .
Dark Maiden's Leap. . . As Cerebella and her mother approached in her eyes it was almost as beautiful as the glistening webs she was so keen to viewing every night at Saphromauge. The grove of the Maiden had a natural beauty as a single ray of moonlight glistened over the shrine to the Maiden of Eilistraee. As they stepped towards the shrine her mother turned to Cerebella. . . A look so serious, frightening and blunt expressions came from her that night as she asked a simple question.
“Do you wish to walk among the spiders my child? Would you give anything to do this?”
Cerebella did not know how to answer. . . She simply looked upon her mother for some time as the silence rattle of the leaves chimed their natural song of nature.
“Yes mother. . .”
She would finally give her word and thus her mother looked upon her happily.
“You shall be seen as a beautiful princess on day Cerebella. . . One day you shall spin your own web more beautiful and mighty then any known to this world and dance upon its webs under the shine of the moon, along the serenading symphony of the wilds nature song. . .
“But in this. . . There is a price. . . For a princess does not walk without her goals for the future. . .”
“You will be given the gift this day child. . . But in doing so you shall be the enemy of those who use the name of our kin wrongly and in vane to cause strife and fear among the wary. . . She. . . those who speak of as Lolth. . . An enemy to our god spins her web under the shadows of her caverns. . . Webs damped with the red of blood and darkened with the black of corruption. . .”
“You my child will bare both your father’s gift and mine. . . And with this you will show those who who have been taught to fear the web to now find the beauty of its ever glistening white silks. . .”
“Find those who walk among the web of corruption and convert them to your new web of salvation. Clear the minds of those who view the practice of lolth’s dogma to be the way it truly is. . . Show them a new way amongst the people and away from the darkness. . .”
“Lolth is the Spider Queen of corruption. . .”
“But you will be the Spider Princess of Salvation. . .”
With her final words her mother would bare her fangs and bite into the neck of Cerebella. Cerebella screeched in pain as it occurred and would soon realized what was happening. . . She could no longer move her arms. . . Her legs. . . Nothing. . . She lied there upon the ground paralyzed as her mother looked upon her with glowing red eyes. Her form slowly morphing into the last thing she would ever see of her mother that night as her vision grew hazey.
A spider glistening under the moon with skin and fur hairs as white as any web she had ever seen before. . .
And thus . . .
Her vision came to a color she would come to so graciously despise until her last breath. . .
Black. . .
Chapter 4: Hail The Princess of Webs
Cerebella’s vision would finally begin to grant depictions of color once again as she opened them. She found herself within a woodland grove lying upon a soft bed of moss and silk during the night. As her vision become clear she finally sat up with a dizzy head and stiff muscles. As she looked around gaining her bearings she noticed the trees of a woodland grove were covered in a multitude of webs and spiders alike. Spiders large and small, of many differing breeds and colors walked among the grove in swarm of white, black, red and blue. A large webbed community loomed throughout the grove from the grass of the mossy ground-scape to the branches of the highest peak of the lumbering tree line. It was a site to behold as she witnessed its full magnificence her gaze turned north to south taking in the site until saw something behind her. A shrine with a single ray of moonlight shining upon its stone foundation. Only then did Cerebella know where she was, as she had never left but the site was formed into something of a nesting ground. She used a large portion of her strength to stand finally, taking light steps towards the shrine. As she reached it a large shadow loomed over her from above its form of that of a large spider-like figurine. She turned and saw it. . . A large white skinned, white furred spider looming in the vision of the full moon. It came slowly began to descend as it was spotted with an ominous, hungering eyes. As it reached the mossy floor of the grove it's figure soon morphed into that of her mother in a dress of pure spider silk. Her mother walk towards with a loving and warm smile and looked upon her.
“We shall hunt under the full moon this night child.”
Her mother said upon her in a whisper.
“Our enemy beacon within our grasp. . . Show them your form and strike upon them with swift bloodshed.”
Cerebella simply looked to her mother unsure of her mother's words and what they meant. She felt no different then she did before her slumber aside from her stiffened muscles. Her mother slowly backed away a smile upon her face once again as her form shifted into her arachnid being once again. Once fully transformed her mother dashed out of the forest in blinding speed. Along with her the forest of spiders followed her step. Tranquility and quiet turned to sounds of battle, hissing and cries for help. Cerebella knew what was happening but not what to do. . . She turned again and there it was. . . The shrine to the one she now knew she must be sworn too. . . She gritted her teeth and kneeled in prayer casting upon herself a transmutation spell of that she did not per-say know the words in her mind but in her heart she felt the wording was correct. For the first time under the gaze of Eilistraee, the as the cast was complete her form shifting to that of a large magnificent phase spider. Cerebella took a moment reveling in her new form. . . And thus within a moments notice skittered into battle alongside her kin tearing at the banners of the lolth caravan and mauling apart their slavers and clergy. It was an event that changed her life forever. . . A battle between the spiders and those who serve them.
Chapter 5: A Web to Call My Own
After the event from last night Cerebella and her mother had left the slaves of the once caravan of lolth to be freed from their chains and find a new life however they could. Cerebella’s mother looked upon her, proud and motherly she was as she embraced her after the battle. She spoke that she would lead some of the slaves who wish to follow her back to Saphromague to live new lives as artisans and hunters. But she explained that she wanted Cerebella to now venture into the world and find a place to lay her own webs as her mother’s, mother did with her. Cerebella as an obedient child would, nodded and embraced her mother once again before being handed a portion of gold from the spoils of the battle along with the first sword her father gave upon her years ago. Another item soon caught her eye as her mother soon outstretched her hand revealing something wrapped within some soft spider silk. It was a cluster of eggs, they seemed freshly laid and fragile. Her mother would soon wrap the eggs again in the soft silk and hand them to Cerebella with a warm smile and a pat on the shoulder before a warm hug is given. Cerebella never looked back only looking onward into the the paths of her new life of freedom outside of the forest for the first time.
For many days and many nights more than she could count Cerebella traveled in common wanderer fashion she would stop from place to place, city by city, and sight by sight taking in the world for what it was as she traveled south. She often times stayed within the comfortability of inns and taverns on her travels but often times then not opted to rest upon the natural bliss of the wild. As time had gone by and roads traveled she eventually stumbled upon the forest of wyrms. The woods littered with arachnid, dragons and other predatory behemoths soon reminded her of home and thus she knew she had found the right place to settle and cease her wandering. Cerebella began to spend her time in the forest of wyrms among the monstrous spiders of the wood watching and learning much and their habitat and community within the forest then Cerebella after some time began her project. . .
As the first webbing was placed upon a large grandfather tree she knew this was her new home. . .
