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.


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 dangerous giant spider, and attacked it with magic, before finally defeating it with the Spider repelling spell, stunning it and sending it fleeing back to its colony.[1]
