Spider-headed beastmen are tall humanoids with spider-like heads. They may
be found both above ground and in subterranean caverns. They form into loosely organized herds, often ranging far from lair in order to steal and kill with rapacious ferocity.

The truth of their orgins fade in to the distant past when an ancient and powerful sorceror conducted several vile experiments on barbarians trying to interbreed them with animals to achive a strong and obedient army to conquer near by kingdom. 
Experiments succeeded, but he underestimated their wit. The sorceror died torn apart by his "children" and here the story ends.
