Bitter, cynical loner who wants recognition.
"Its always the one you didnt see that gets you..."
The Brown Recluse has a phenomenal physique and a number of spider oriented powers, including clinging and web spinning.

With a wide variety of Entangling options and a high SPD, the Brown Recluse is very good at exerting "control" over opponents, locking down those that lack the means to escape from them. He can also make effective blades from his webbing that don't last long but pack a vicious punch vs. the unwary.

The Recluse is extremely agile and difficult to hit, but conversely lacks strong defenses otherwise. He must remain alert and dodgy to avoid serious harm.

If the Recluse is too powerful for your campaign reduce his DEX and SPD; this should tone him down sufficiently. If the Recluse is not powerful enough for your campaign raise his PD & ED and improve his MP so that his Entangle slots can have a higher DEF.

 Brown Recluse Created by Corven Ren 
Mike Croswell was a NYC Police Officer working a beat for five years trying to make detective. He was a little dirty, taking a little gratuity here or there, but not outright corrupt. Finally he gave up on ever getting off the street and let it be known that he was amenable to getting involved in bigger stakes. One of the people he had an arrangement with, Donato Giatello, introduced him to some other people and soon Mike was completely on the take. His beat was in the docks area, and usually he'd get paid to look the other way when things were brought in or out of the port late at night.

One night however his secondary employers were bringing in some kind of extra special cargo and wanted him nearby to ward off any interference. Mike loitered in the area, nervous at this extra exposure, and was on hand when a group of street-level vigilantes called the Morgue Men attacked the shipment. In over his head, Mike tried to hide behind a pallet loaded with some kind of Bio-hazard barrels already taken off the ship and put beside one of the warehouses in preparation for subsequent loading. One of the Morgue Men saw him duck behind the barrels and hosed the lot of them down with a submachine gun, splashing Mike with the contents of the barrels in the process. Simultaneously, when Mike dived into the pile of random detritus up against the wall of the warehouse he disturbed the nest of a brown recluse spider which promptly bit him.

The combination of bio-altering sludge and spider venom should have killed him, but instead triggered Mike's latent mutant potential. Instead of dying, Mike was instead catalyzed and developed strange spider-like powers. Visibly unchanged, in the aftermath Mike reported that he happened upon the scene and was able to avoid getting caught out as a dirty cop by his superiors. On the side however he started discovering and experimenting with his new powers. Realizing the potential of his new powers to make him very wealthy, he started working jobs on the side, wearing a homemade brown costume and calling himself the Recluse. His exploits soon gained the attention of the media, who dubbed him the Brown Recluse, and eventually his secret was ruined by the interference of the Morgue Men, who set a trap for him and tracked him back to his house. Mike escaped the ensuing fight, killing two of the Morgue Men in the process, but his cover was blown in the process after the Morgue Men leaked his identity anonymously.

Ever since then Mike has been trying to make ends meet with odd jobs. The problem is all of his contacts with the NYC criminal scene have been attrited by the efforts of the Morgue Men in recent months; those still alive are keeping a low profile. In the meantime Mike has had to seek employement outside of NYC and has taken some jobs from Enforcers Inc, a crowd-control type job on a major heist in L.A., and a couple of assassinations so far.
