While not much is known about the organization's past, it is known that their leader, Lil' Miss Malachite, was once terrified of spiders. She overcame this by making the spiders "work for her". Spiders became the new theme for the group, with every member receiving a tattoo of the spider emblem on their bodies and the symbol being used to mark hideouts and territory.
One day, Cinder Fall enters a bar owned by Lil' Miss Malachite, looking for Lil' Miss. Although her bodyguards are against letting Cinder approach, Cinder offers stolen Lien to Lil' Miss. Lil' Miss Malachite agrees to speak with her, and Cinder requests that, in exchange for the money, Malachite and the Spiders would track down the students from Beacon academy: Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Yang Xiao Long, Jaune Arc, Nora Valkyrie and Lie Ren. Lil' Miss Malachite agrees.
Cinder is then startled by shouting, only to realize it is just some of the bar patrons welcoming a newcomer. Malachite observes this and offers advice to Cinder - if you fear something, do not destroy it; make it serve you. She explains that she was afraid of spiders, but had made the spiders work for her. Cinder looks around the bar to realize every patron is tattooed with the Spiders' emblem. She proceeds to leave. One of Malachite's bodyguards then asks her why she did not tell Cinder that they were hired by "the big guy" to find the students and already succeeded. Lil' Miss Malachite explains it is because they do not know who Cinder is or who may be looking for her.
Later Cinder once again returns to the tavern,where Lil' Miss Malachite reveals that the Ruby's group have taken a train to Argus and are likely headed to Atlas. Satisfied, Cinder attempts to leave and follow the group, but before she could Lil' Miss reveals that she had already figured out Cinder's true identity and also reveals that she had successfully found another customer who wanted to know Cinder's Location, Neopolitan.
