  • Maelstrom Spider
rdfs:comment
  • Maelstrom Spiders are giant arachnid creatures of chaos. The Maelstrom Spider was the first species of Stromlings to be created. When Baron Typhonus wanted to demonstrate the power of chaos and Imagination without rules, he used the Imagination Nexus to create the first Maelstrom Spider, the Spider Boss. The Spider Boss dragged the Baron into the Imagination Nexus, corrupting it into the Maelstrom. While the original Spider Boss has not been seen since the event that shattered Planet Crux, Free To Play promotional artwork shows a Maelstrom Spider on Crux Prime, suggesting that the Spider Boss is likely near the ruins of the Mythran Temple.

  • Maelstrom Spiders are giant arachnid creatures of chaos. The Maelstrom Spider was the first species of Stromlings to be created. When Baron Typhonus wanted to demonstrate the power of chaos and Imagination without rules, he used the Imagination Nexus to create the first Maelstrom Spider, the Spider Boss. The Spider Boss dragged the Baron into the Imagination Nexus, corrupting it into the Maelstrom. While the original Spider Boss has not been seen since the event that shattered Planet Crux, Free To Play promotional artwork shows a Maelstrom Spider on Crux Prime, suggesting that the Spider Boss is likely near the ruins of the Mythran Temple. Although the Spider Boss is the original Maelstrom Spider, there have been reports other Maelstrom Spiders across the LEGO Universe. Since their appearances are rare, much about Maelstrom Spiders is shrouded in mystery. However, it is known that they are very powerful and can reproduce, and their offspring are Dark Spiderlings. JIW2 and his fellow pilots were besieged by a group of Stromlings shortly before the launch of Pod 2. While its validity is unconfirmed, JIW2's Mission Log describes an arachnid Stromling that was the size of a large vehicle, suggesting that he encountered a Maelstrom Spider. JIW2 also heard reports of another Maelstrom Spider breaking through bars to escape its captivity. A Maelstrom Spider was first seen in the Battle for Zorillo Plaza segments of the "Answer the Call" LEGO Universe trailer; however, like the Grumpy Darklings, no Maelstrom Spiders appear in the Battle of Nimbus Station based upon this trailer. In the remake of this trailer featuring Duke Exeter, Hael Storm, and Vanda Darkflame, the Maelstrom Spider is mostly obscured by a Maelstrom Dragon but can still be glimpsed. More recently, Paradox experiments with Maelstrom-Infected Bricks at the Paradox Research Facility created a Maelstrom Spider Queen. The Spider Queen broke free of its captivity, releasing Maelstrom energies that corrupted the researchers and Defense Robots into Stromlings and Stromling Mechs. The Spider Queen retreated to the Maelstrom Mine, where she conceived many Dark Spiderling offspring before traveling to Block Yard. The Spider Queen is the only Maelstrom Spider that players can battle in-game. Another Maelstrom Spider made its home in the Stromling-infested tunnels beneath the Paradox Refinery of Forbidden Valley. The spider can be glimpsed when players race in the Dragonmaw Chasm. Given the infestation of Dark Spiderlings in the caverns, it is likely that this Maelstrom Spider had many offspring.
