Arakna, the Soul Collector. Necro Ravager from Nocturna.

Allies and enemies alike whispered her title, the Soul Collector.


Arakna the Soul Collector is a Necro Ravager from the game Darkspore. She is from the planet Nocturna, and resembles a spider, as her name suggests. Arakna was called a Tempest at Comic-con 2010, but she has apparently been changed to a Ravager, or this was a mistake. Other than being a member of the Nocturni Legion, it is unknown if she has any relations towards Jinx.

Revelation[]

Arakna was first seen when Darkspore was first demonstrated at GamesCom fighting alongside Meditron. She underwent some major changes before being officially revealed on the Darkspore website.

Lore[]

Few in the Nocturni Legion inspired the terror that Arakna did. Allies and enemies alike whispered her title, the Soul Collector.

Arakna could hurl neurodisruptive hyper-pulses, or "soul bolts," and strike with necrotic bursts. She could rip strategic secrets from even her mightiest opponents by tearing out their neuro-intellectual identities or "souls."

For the souls of her final hold-outs, Arakna reserved two terrifying fates: to be transformed into necrotic weapons against their own comrades, or fed to the throbbing thousands in her egg sack in unspeakable psychic agony.

Trivia[]

  • Arakna is one of the few heroes whose "voices" have been heard. Every time she attacks, she makes a screeching-gargle noise. Other heroes who makes noise are Wraith, Titan, Viper, and Magnos.
  • Her name is derived from the word arachnid, the taxonomy that spiders fall into.
  • Arakna's blaster weapon resembles the ones that Tork has strapped onto his wrists.
  • Originating from opposing forces, Arakna is thought to have a grudge against Jinx. Fans often joke and dispute about this, saying things such as during missions, Jinx and her might argue over which side of the Nocturni Legion is superior.
  • Arakna's name is typed as "Arakhna" in the Darkspore ARG, HelpEDNA.
  • Arakna was the first hero revealed to be female and have no hands. The only other known females hero so far are Andromeda, Seraph-X5, and now Jinx as well.
  • Arakna's early design resembled that of a Triocular Scorpiod.

Arakna's earliest-known design from Comic-con 2010.
