He should have powers based upon looking and seeing. He is obviously a bee-holder.

The palindromedary says the wand he holds will make anything it is pointed to more attractive. It appears to be a letter "I" and everyone knows Beauty is in the I of the Bee Holder

Largely a cross post, such a creature appears in one of the MHI novels - 

Yoshitoshi, the Spider Princess, is a Tsuchigumo (土蜘蛛), literally translated "dirt/earth spider", a historical Japanese derogatory term for renegade local clans, and also the name for a race of spider-like yōkai in Japanese folklore.  Like others of her kind, she has no allegiance to the Japanese Emperor, and she only looks human.  Her monstrous true form is seen by who are Stunned, or when she is Stunned, Knocked out, or asleep.

 

She has four Invisible Extra Limbs with exoskeleton Armor, the body of a tiger, and the head of a demon.  Her blood is white.

 

She has a suite of spider Powers: Clinging, and

 

25  Multipower Spider Webs, Susceptible to Flame (-1)

 1) Entangle 4d6 DEF 4, 1/2 END (+1/4), 

 1 2) Stretching 4", No END (+1/2), 

 1 3) Swinging 15", 4x NCM, No END (+1/2)

 

An idea for her use as a Player Character would be to have her bodyguards slain in action (in play), and then offer employment to our other Player Characters as bodyguards.  They may have to spar with her to show their skills.  Funerals may also be role-played.

Invisible Extra Limbs is original. I think I haven't heard that in 25 years of playing CHAMPIONS. :thumbup:

Re: Her Royal Highness, Yoshitoshi, there is plenty of room for improvement of her illusion ability.  For use of her as a Player Character, I recommend her Hand-to-Hand damage not exceed the PC average, given that she can blindside a foe with her Invisible Spider Limbs.  If her Player wants to keep the other Players unaware of this exact capacity, this could be referred to as her Shadowless Strike.  

 

Perhaps her mother is known as Our Lady, Queen of Secrets.

A Tsuchigumo is described as being a spider that has lived long enough to gain magical powers. Using said powers it can disguise it's true form as that of a human. All the stories seem to indicate that they all turn themselves into lovely women, suggesting that much like the kitsune the "woman" you see can actually be a male or female creature.
 
The standard it seems for the Tsuchigumo is that once they have disguised themselves as a woman they will find a semi secluded place and wait for a human (usually male) to show up. The tales vary; some tell of the Tsuchigumo asking individuals to marry them (with often disastrous results) or ask someone to care for their baby which is later discovered to be the spider's egg sack. There are also stories of men falling in love with the Tsuchigumo and slowly die as she drains his life away every time he goes to see her.

The most common however seems to be that the Tsuchigumo will find a safe place to wait and lure a an to sit with her as she plays her Biwa, a Japanese instrument. It is said her playing is so beautiful that the man doesn't notice he's being cocooned until it's too late. Soon after the Tsuchigumo devours it's victim or feeds them to it's young.

There is however another aspect to the Tsuchigumo, a legend tells of a man who was down by a waterfall in Kashikobuch (meaning "clever abyss") and managed to escape the web trap the Tsuchigumo had laid by wrapping it around a stump. After she tore the stump out of the ground and into the water he fled, but as he ran he heard her voice call out, "How clever, how clever!". It seems she was so impressed by his escape and decided to reward humans as a whole; as she is now worshiped there as a a goddess who protects the residents from drowning. There is still a shrine standing there in her honor.

Though most Tsuchigumo hide their true spider body it seems this one has been kind enough to show off her extra bedecked limbs to us. And if one looks carefully you can see her young peeking out from their shelter beneath her kimono.

In a sense, that's true, given that the picture is a photo of a wooden plaque upon a Detroit restaurant wall.
