Dissidents of the world-feared Brahma Brotherhood now gathered and controlled by Bernard Worlov, Reality M's Nobody, through a stream of lies architected by the current President of the United States and Bers, put into motion by the spider himself as he leisurely carried his plan for a schism within the Brotherhood, weakening it and thus ultimately seizing their leader's head. It would never erase his mistakes, it would never right his wrongs, it would never restore that kid's arm. However, it would be easier to bear waking every morning acknowledging he had carried own, even if partially, the desire of his deceased comrades. Bernard was, after all, a mere vessel to their hopes and dreams.
Albeit his efforts were many, he'd never expect the rewards he received from all the hard work. Instead of solely leaving the group behind and later being chased due to their criminal records, the members who faithfully believed his lies, associating the Brotherhood no longer with its central figure due to a few slips committed by its new leader, yet to Gothic's infamous clown gangster: Curve, they actually pledged allegiance to Gothic's obscure spider, spreading his web throughout the entire city.
Their influence is still fairly small, but soon the City of Sin's vermins shall know there's a new predator in the scene.
The spider symbol, it has scattered among the lines of those who follow Nobody. Be it a gargantuan tribal tattoo on a member's back or a mere web tattoo on the elbow with a small spider "crawling" through it, it all signifies their unjustified fanaticism to their new leader, who they respectfully bow down and refer to as "Boss". Garbing rather stylish clothing, Bers' underlings seem a completely different bunch compared to their crazed selves prior to the great schism.
The "Clan", as they dub their organization, serves a similar purpose of a gang, even though they are not inherently vile and do not plan to seize control of the city by any means. They are better described, perhaps, as an organization of hunters lurking among the city's darkest corners awaiting for the vermin to come out of hiding, so they can capture them and, ultimately, rid the society of their evil. They do not kill, they do not attack innocents, they simply use the same method as Dark Vengeance once did, incapacitating for a period of time and utilizing fear to make sure they'll never disturb those stained streets again. Restraining such humongous killing instinct is a demanding work, but Bernard seems to be able to pull the strings of his associates.
Their main source of revenue comes from breaking into properties controlled by the traffic and overall criminals, kicking the previous owners out through sheer strength, and then putting the business right back on track as its new management, endeavoring to cleanse it from the filth but not at the cost of others' lives or even jobs. They seem to owe, at the very least, one casino somewhere around Gothic. Still, a small portion of income comes from good-willed civilians, those who could have lost all but did not thanks to the Arachné Clan, thus feeling, somehow, indebted even if they were never charged anything.

I'm setting this group up to oppose Sahi's Brotherhood in a possibly upcoming event. It's, by no means, an NPC-only group and it can be joined by other users, however I'd like to be contacted before so we can work out the details and all that boring stuff. Please, also remember this is a group that does not kill, so don't go around creating mercs with a knack for shooting people's heads and then complain when they get turned down as possible members.
I will probably make an official HQ after the finals...
