This Acromantula was a member of the Forbidden Forest Acromantula colony, which guarded the Forest Vault, one of the Cursed Vaults, in the Forbidden Forest.[1]


1987–1988 school year

In the 1987–1988 school year, it stayed near the entrance of the Forest Vault, as it could easily prey on the sleepwalking students approaching it and devour their flesh. Thankfully, the Centaur Torvus sent the students back to the castle before the foul beast could get a chance to devour a student. Jacob's sibling, when they ventured into the forest to find out the truth surrounding the vault, came across the Acromantula, and attacked it with magic, before finally defeating it with Arania Exumai, stunning it and sending it fleeing back to its colony.[1]

1988–1989 school year

At the start of the 1988–1989 school year, Jacob's sibling and another student returned to the Spider's Lair and duelled the Acromantula in order to find Beatrice Haywood.[2]

Later during this school year, Jacob's sibling and Nymphadora Tonks returned to face an Acromantula to get some of its venom to give Mundungus Fletcher in order to get more information about the Marauder's Map from him. It's likely that this was the Acromantula they duelled.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • It's possible that this Acromantula was Aragog, given that he was already in the colony at that time and appeared to be the leader a few years after the story of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
