I've always left the cosmology of Arachnid Goddess as indistinct. Not because I never defined it, but that vagueness plays into how the story goes. Ahab doesn't necessarily know much more than the reader does.

Ahab is a 'demishaman', which was told to her early on as 'being the one who experiences'. Despite having the capacity to see all these interesting sights and individuals, she's not anything so enlightened for it- she's a wanderer, not a Buddha.

Basically, the story plays into Ahab's life and those around it. And some might say that regardless of whatever meaning we assign our lives, life is innately about confusion.

So there are apparently fallen angels, gods, devils, sapient vermin people, an odd metaphysical system involving ghosts, and so on. As such, Ahab isn't here to determine reality. She's here to experience it where others could not.

So it's kind of symbolic of one knowing their path, yet having to yield to the winds of fate. Life often seems to be sculpted by two fears, of the unknown and of failure. Ahab seems to have neither fear.

We all are trapped in a sense, we all are bound by some tie to this world, and maybe another beyond the ken of man, certainly beyond his understanding.
