Eris the Spider's mother is perhaps the one person Eris despises the most. At some point in her life, she was raped by a Gossamer spider ninja, whereupon she conceived and gave birth to a daughter. Traumatized by the rape and seeing her daughter as a constant reminder of the event, Eris was subjected to physical and emotional trauma by her mother almost daily before she finally ran off. Eris still holds great hate for her mother, in part for the abuse she suffered at her mother's hands, but also for the supposed "horrible" name that she was named when she was born. She hated this name so much in fact that she changed it to Eris after to ran away.
