Arakune (アラクネ) is a monster that roamed the sewers of the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi. It was created when Lotte Carmine fell into the Boundary, and is chased around the world by Litchi Faye-Ling.

Arakune is one of the original twelve playable characters that debuted in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger.

Appearance

Arakune is a monster made of liquid seithr. Its most distinct feature is a simple, white mask with a crude face where its head would be. Inside its body are poisonous insects and multiple, bone-like appendages which it can use to move about or attack its victims with. Because of its liquid nature, it can add extra body parts, such as eyes or mouths around its body and reshape itself into a limitless number of forms; some of these forms it has taken include a flower, a moth and a giant sphere.

Personality

Both its philosophy and its values differ greatly from that of humans, obscuring the meaning behind its actions. However, it is clear that through all of its actions, it seeks to gather knowledge.[2][3]

Powers & Techniques

Library Entry

Arakune

A scientist who once worked at Sector Seven.

In his attempt to surpass his mentor Kokonoe, he profusely chased the ‘truths’ of the world, but came too close to the Boundary. As a result, he lost his human form and memories, turning into a creature obsessed with seeking the ‘Azure.’ His body is linked directly to the Boundary, and is comprised of a near-infinite amount of bugs. ‘Arakune’ is how he is commonly known - especially on wanted posters.

Its sense of values is no longer close to what it was while human. Its words often sound like gibberish, but what is understood is its purpose to seek even greater knowledge. Furthermore, maintaining its physical state is extremely difficult, which is why it consumes humans and members of the Kaka Clan to survive.

There have been recorded responses to the names Litchi and Kokonoe, but clearly its memory is shattered.

That became even more evident when prolonged exposure to Litchi cornered it into a state of complete mental agitation. That is, until Relius Clover rescued the creature and took it under his control. Now, Arakune continues to seek the Azure, confined by the strings attached to Relius’s hands.[4]
