Silk Spitters, also known simply as Spitters, were the main fighting force of the Arathim Ascendancy. They were one of the largest of the innumerable Arathim subspecies and had no limit to the sizes they could attain.[2] They immobilized prey by spitting blobs of webbing which would envelop prey on impact,[3] though they could also emit saliva which could burn skin.[4] Their silk could be dried into a powder, which the Gelfling used during the Arathim Wars as a battleground stimulant which could hide the wearer's scent.[5]

A particularly large horde of Spitters could merge together to form an enlarged version of themselves.[6] A bite from such a specimen was toxic enough to kill a Landstrider in minutes,[7] and its carapace was impenetrable to all bladed weapons save for the Dual Glaive.[8]

During the late Age of Division, the Silk Spitter became one of the templates used in the creation of the Garthim.[9]
