Arachne (アラクネ Arakune) is a retired mage of the Gramlush Guild. She now lives in a cottage alongside her associates: Baba Yaga and Helga Hagfish, she is the youngest of the trio. She possesses a Familiar named Arania.
Current Appearance | Younger Appearance
Arachne appears as a very short, elderly lady with blue eyes, a very long, pointed nose and multiple wrinkles on her face. She also has very little teeth and has dirty blonde coloured hair, worn short and very messy and unkempt, with several strands protruding from her head. She wears a plain, puffy green dress with a tattered hemline and brown sandals. Over head head she wears a red hood with two pullstrings with white pom poms on each.
When she was in her younger years, while still a member of Gramlush; Arachne's appearance wasn't extremely different but nor was it really similar to her current state. She has brighter blonde hair, a healthier complexion and was also slightly taller. Her nose was also noticeably smaller and she had a full mouth of teeth. She seemed to wear a similar red hood with pom pom pullstrings but a totally different dress, which was a darker shade of green and had a lighter, frilly laced hem and she also wore knee-high brown boots. She always carried her lupine cane with her.
PersonalityGenerally, Arachne was a very cheery, kind old lady who cared deeply for almost everything in her life, she has a good relationship with all of the animals of the forest and her fellow Grimm Sisters, although she was known for being rather clumsy and slightly boastful, shown when she bragged about being a Two-time winner of the Miss Fiore Pageant when she was younger and also the fact that she had once dated Makarov Dreyar.
It should also be noted that Arachne can have a vicious temper, as seen when Arion disrespected her due to her age, saying that he should respect his elders and should watch his mouth. She then proceeded to savagely beat the man with her walking cane.
Like the other two Grimm Sisters, Arachne was once a flourishing Mage and a member of the Gramlush Guild. She was also known to have dated Makarov Dreyar of Fairy Tail in her younger years and that she was also a two time winner of the Miss Fiore Pageant.
