|~ Arbiter Daos|
Arbiter Daos is the head of Arachnos's Arbiters in the online game City of Heroes. Though Arachnos may be a supervillain organization Lord Recluse has a set of standards and rules to enforce his presence at all time within his territory, for this he has the Arbiters.
The Arbiters establish law and order for Arachnos and are some of the only members of Arachnos that will not attack anyone weaker than them on sight. Though most Arbiters function as shop keepers, record keepers, trainers and other benign posts they are considered untouchable within the organization, an organization that in all other cases is willing to promote assassins to the posts of those they assassinated. Arbiters accommodate all villains including known enemies of Arachnos and are sworn not to let personal matters sway their treatment of those seeking their help.
Arbiter Daos, being the senior most Arbiter, is said to be the single most humorless man in the Rogue Isles and is devoted to Lord Recluse and Arachnos. Daos' authority goes even above the Patrons of Arachnos, Lord Recluse's four right hands. Though Daos may not interfere in combat his obsessive loyalty grants him the clout to command nearly every single super-villain in the entire archipelago with ties to Arachnos. He is considered the living will of Lord Recluse and though he is more bureaucrat than super-villain he is considered second only to Lord Recluse himself. Arbiter Daos is trusted with keeping an eye on the Patrons personally and dealing out punishments as needed if any of them violate the direct wishes of Lord Recluse as they have been stated. Any player that goes to work for a Patron will eventually find their respective Patron is plotting something he/she shouldn't be within Arachnos, in all these cases Arbiter Daos will contact the player before matters get too far out of hand and offer to lift punishment of their involvement in the plots in exchange for turning on and defeating their Patron before their plans are fully complete. Arbiter Daos also has his own problems aside from dealing with the Patrons and may contact the villain on personal matters later to track down and kill his son who is rebelling against his father by taking up arms against Arachnos.
