Background
The Crimson Spider Lin Kuei was founded by an aspiring and ambitious student of one of the top Kung Fu masters in China. To avenge the humiliation that he suffered, he practiced long and hard at techniques that were stealthy and deadly. After slaying the master and the majority of the students of the school, the founder established his own school dedicated to the art of assassination.

The first of such schools, followers of the Crimson Spider school worked hard at eliminating competition. By the end of the 19th century, the Crimson Spider was the only lin kuei clan. However, at the same time, competition from other assassin and mercenary organizations began to increase.

For the past half century, Crimson Spider has had at least one uber as part of the clan. The uber, at this time, Shadowspinner, is selected for abilities that make for super-assassins and raised from childhood as part of the clan.
