There are some people in the Rogue Islands who have dreams of making it big. Some of them turn to The Family for such things, some of them strike out on their own and step over anyone that gets in their way while doing so, but for Luca Harrison, he chose to go through Arachnos to do this. Having lived in the Rogue Islands most of his life, he'd often times see the Arachnos agents of various sorts... Fortunata's, Wolf Spiders, even the Arbiters, and how they all would walk tall at all times. How they would spout their bravado and not only act, but show the islands that they owned everything around them, even the people. Luca knew if he could get in with their group, he could become big as well.
The New Agent
When finally joining Arachnos, he quickly came to realize how brutal of an organization it was, and why its agents acted as they do. Yet interestingly enough, he seemed fine with this. Arachnos had torn him down, and built him back up into a strong, calculating, killing machine. Gave him the means to use what they taught him, and unleashed him onto the islands like so many others like him. Being just a simple agent of Arachnos wasn't enough though. Luca was determined to prove to not only Lord Recluse, but the entire world that he was truly a big man now! He had his sites set on Arbiter status, and saw an opportunity to truly prove he had what it took to be someone so high ranking in Arachnos... Opperation: Destiney Manifest. He'd take the route that so many had done in the past, he'd add himself to the list of Destined Ones and work outside the normal branches of Arachnos. Naturally such actions were immediately frowned upon as Luca didn't hesitate at all to gun down the troops that were guarding the list and add his name.
As a response of course, some of the Arachnos squadrons were deployed to deal with Luca. If he wanted to be a Destined One after all, he'd have to prove he had what it took! Much to their surprise though, Luca was able to over power the squadrons sent after him through a combination of deception and brute force. Clearly, the drill instructors of Arachnos had taught Luca well. They accepted him as a Destined One then, and to mark him as such, provided him with some custom armor and a new code name: Katipo... Much like that of one of the deadliest spiders of the world. And so, Luca, originally known as Operative Harrison, become known as Operative Katipo.
Making a Monster
As Katipo continued on his path as a new Destined One, he eventually gained enough notoriety to be summoned by the Orb Weavers for respecification. When he arrived, the Orb Weavers immediately began to set to work. Injecting him with special super serums that made him larger, stronger, and more aggressive, as well as fusing new armor and weapons to his very body. No longer was he the Huntsman he started as, but a Crab Spider... Something more than a mere Crab Spider. He became a true monster. Another living instrument of Recluses will... and he was ready to be sent back into the field...
- Cybernetic Crab Spider Armor:The Crab Spider Armor that Katipo has is slightly different from the normal armor most Crab Spiders wear. In addition to the enchancements that the Orb Weavers gave to Katipo to make him the behemoth he is now, they also futred cybernetic plating to his body, as well as a special set of Crab Spider arms that were directly fused to his spine rather than being something that would be manipulated through bodily movements. This armor alone is Katipo's greatest weapon and power, and at the same time his greatest curse. Never able to remove the armor completely as it's fused to him forever, but as a result, having the strength and power he'd always desired.
