When the Spectral hives bloomed and spewed forth thousands of Spectres into the world, Dog-Spiders were among the many new breeds to appear. Their name directly describes their appearance; a skeletal dog head (complete with sharp, pointy teeth) and a decaying canine body are attached to eight spider legs. Like spiders, they can crawl on almost any surface, making them very hard to escape. Although one of the smaller varieties of Spectre, Dog-Spiders tend to work in large packs against a few targets. Unusually, the alpha of the pack has Storm-Wending, and can hide an entire pack of them between "dimensions"; when another ghost uses Storm-Wending, they can follow and ambush them, a frightening ability that makes them that much more dangerous.
