|Behind the Scenes|
The Octogores are a race of hostile spider-like aliens.
The Octogores resemble huge spiders (Virtually indistinguishable from Arachno-sapiens), they can grow to be as large as twenty feet in height, and can have legs as thick as telephone poles. They have black eyes, are egg-laying, and are web-weaving. Curiously they seem fully capable of speaking English.
Not much is known about the Octogore culture, but they seem to be hostile and invasive, and have a long-standing rivalry with the Arachno-sapience. It is clear that they have adept scientists, and do not have any taboos against slavery in their culture. They seem to be masters of interstellar travel, and perfected a poison that can turn humans into spiders.
The earliest known event in Octogore history was when they drove the Arachno-sapiens from their homeworld. They would then go on to attack the Arachno-sapiens adopted homeworld Earth.
They invaded the city of Saginaw, with the intent of converting the human population into spiders to serve as slaves. Thankfully they were stopped by a group of humans and Arachno-sapiens.
- Octogores only appear in the ninth Michigan Chillers book "Sinister Spiders of Saginaw".
