===== Tactics =====
Before Combat Thrissik drinks her potion of mage armor, potion of haste, and potion of greater magic fang before combat.
During Combat Thrissik leap-charges the least physically imposing target from the top of the obsidian pillars to activate her Death From Above feat. If her target tries to disengage, she follows them with Step Up and Strike. On the following round she withdraws to the jungle to hide and recover her health with potions. She will always attempt to re-engage combat by charging from an elevated position. She will not kill an incapacitated humanoid opponent, as she plans to sacrifice them to the Obsidian Spider after the battle.
Morale Thrissik will drink her potion of invisibility and flee when she reaches 20 hp, unless her opponents are attempting to damage the Obsidian Spider, in which case she fights to the death.
Base Statistics Thrissik’s AC includes +4 armor bonus from potion of mage armor, and her bite attack includes +2 to hit and damage from potion of greater magic fang. Her stats do not include the bonuses from potion of haste, which will last the first 5 rounds of combat.

===== Special Abilities =====
Ambush Leaper (Ex) Thrissik may leap down onto an opponent from above as part of a charge. If the opponent is flat footed against her, she may attempt to trip them as a free action. This does not provoke an attack of opportunity.
Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 19; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect 1d2 Strength damage; cure 1 save.
Scout’s Charge (Ex) Whenever Thrissik makes a charge, her attack deals sneak attack damage as if the target were flat-footed. Foes with uncanny dodge are immune to this ability.
Thrissik was once like any of the other giant spiders that were drawn to the power of the Obsidian Spider statue, until she distinguished herself as the most effective and brutal hunter in the swarm. The malevolent minds within the statue manifested the very last of their power to awaken her as their champion, and tasked her to sacrifice humanoids in the red pool before the Obsidian Spider. Sufficient deaths will bring the statue to life to wreak bloody vengeance on the world from which its occupants were driven. Cunning and vicious, Thrissik has been capturing any humanoid that wanders the jungle for sacrifice, and has looted from them a sizable collection of potions which she wears slung in a bandoleer woven of her silk, and a single ring of protection that she wears jammed onto one of her pedipalps.
