Note: as drug addict, accidentally killed his own father
Black Spider sought vengeance against all drug dealers, even to the point of sacrificing his own life in a "suicide bombing" that killed numerous drug dealers.
Black Spider was later resurrected by Baron Agua Sin Gaaz, an event which seems to have altered his personality considerably. After returning to life, he acted more like a common criminal mercenary, and did not seem consumed with his obsession for vengeance against drug dealers.
