The Spider Gnomes are a small group of Gnomes who live in Darklin Reach. They are more primitive than other Gnomes and bear an uncanny resemblance to spiders in the way they move. Superstitious in nature, they present sacrifices to the Werebeasts who live in certain areas around their village, especially on Olden Moor.
Spider Gnomes are probably descended from the Spiders, one of the groups of mutant humans in the Genesis of Shannara trilogy. The Spiders are very similar to the Spider Gnomes in both beliefs and appearances.
