Jorogumo

Appearing as beautiful, well-dressed humans, jorogumos lurk in high mountains and prey on travelers. These evil creatures often keep giant spiders as pets and can fully change into a giant spider or sprout spider legs from their backs. Jorogumos usually eat their prey, but some humanoids meet an even more gruesome fate as living incubators for jorogumo eggs.

Sidebar - Related Creatures Jorogumo Animosity

Rather than attempting to manipulate a tengu traveler, jorogumos usually fly into a rage and attempt to murder them as quickly as possible. The source of this single-minded hatred isn't clear, but some jorogumos insist, without any factual support, that tengus can see through their trickery with a mere glance and are immune to their venom.
