Alien Species
"Nasty things."
―Mr. Emerson

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 (~ 6 meters) 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.

Culture and society[]

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-sapiens. 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".
