The Blade Scorpion is a creature known for being fast and deadly with a stinging tail, distantly related to the Alert Spider, Spike Spider and Wasp Spider. Despite being called "scorpions" they only have six legs, and lack the pincers of their namesake. Their mouths also appear to form what looks more like a beak than a pair of mandibles.

The Blade Scorpion is quick on its feet and quicker to attack. Be wary of its tail, and the darkened hidey holes it favors for sleeping. This lobster-like arachnid has a very different jointed tail to the regular scorpion, with twice as much potential to harm. As well as carrying a deadly sting at the tail's tip, the Blade Scorpion's tail itself is just that - a lethal, razor sharp blade capable of scything through armor.

Background historyEdit

The creature is first encountered by Sphinx during his first journey into Uruk Castle, located in a clay pot just above the chamber which Set (in his Human disguise) was using at the time to transform Prince Tutankhamen into a mummified corpse.

Eventually Sphinx encounters another one also hiding inside of a pot and uses a Capture Beetle on it to take as a donation to the Abydosian Museum.
