The Council of Mirrors

Toby Arachnid is the son of Everafters Miss Muffet (aka Mrs. Arachnid) and her husband the Spider. He can switch between the form of a human-looking Everafter and a very large spider. When his mother was pregnant with him, the couple were nearly broke and desperate for money. Rumplestiltskin offered a deal with them in which they would hand over their child to Rumplestiltskin and would get a large fortune of money in return. Their emotions being manipulated by Rumplestiltskin, the couple agreed and, when Toby was born, became instantly rich. Toby, however, was to be raised lovingly by Rumplestiltskin and was convinced that his parents abandoned him in a park. As he grew, Toby's emotions would be fed on by Rumplestiltskin, and he became extremely loyal to his "father."

Toby appeared in The Unusual Suspects of the series. He was a student of Ferryport Landing Elementary, where his "father" worked in disguise as a guidance counselor and also where he could see the construction of the underground tunnels that Rumplestiltskin planned to burrow through the barrier. After being defeated by the Grimms, his parents finally were reunited with him. However, since he was unconscious, his reaction to meeting his real parents is unknown.

Unfortunately, at the end of Magic and Other Misdemeanors, Toby's parents were seen among a throng of Everafters that supported the Scarlet Hand. Because of his parents' choice to go against the Grimms, it can be assumed that Toby, too, is in the Scarlet Hand.

Physical Description

Toby has "wiry black hair" and "big bug eyes". When a spider, he has the lower body of a spider and pincers, along with the torso, arms, and head of a boy.
