Spider is a totem. It is regarded as a bit obscure by most metahumans. There was an incident in the early 2050s, freeing "Spider" from a magical prison under the Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) in Australia, which was accidentally created by a shadowrunner named Samuel Verner aka "Twist". In the consequences this led to a race around the world to localise various stashed, forgotten nukes, "Spider" showed an unusual interest for.
Spider is - at its best - a total control freak. Spider shamans are cold, manipulating and merciless, and they are - mostly - dedicated bug hunters, who go any length to track down and kill insect spirits.
A lot of the West African tribal shamans follow the totem spider, which they call "Aszazi".
