"The Arachnid Assassins are an elite band of warriors that have patrolled the lands seeking those pesty parasites that pillage and destroy. The Assassins are considered the greatest band of mercenaries that exist today. These devout warriors unselfishly eradicated the vermin so that others would be free to enjoy the world of Tarkus. Without their uncelebrated valor the lands would not be as wonderful as they are now. The names of the shadowy fighters are Brett Bilbrey the Meek, Rob Hahn of the West, Linda Kaplan of the East, Paul Snively the Scribe, Julia Ulano of JemmStarr, and numerous apprentices."
