The Photon Spider is one of the few surviving creatures found on Varl after the devastation wrought to the planet by the Hutts. The creature is terrible to behold: 4 meters long and covered from mandible to spinneret in hard chitinous armor. In addition to this, the body of a Photon Spider is virtually transparent and the creature exceptionally light-footed, making it a highly effective ambush predator despite its size.
Photon Spiders get their name from their unusual natural weapon, a spinneret capable of firing a bolt of energy similar to that of a blaster set on Stun.
