Fidelis Aranea is a back glyph that summons a Skull Spider familiar (80 MP). The Skull Spider will follow Shanoa with a steady pace, crawling on any surface it comes across, either ground, wall or ceiling. Any enemy that comes in contact with it will be poisoned (unless the enemy is immune to this effect). Leveling up the familiar will increase its speed.

- Familiars in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia reach Level 2 at 32,767 XP and max out at 65,535 XP, which is Level 3 (the message "LEVEL UP" will appear onscreen when a new level has been reached). Unfortunately, there's no in-game way of checking how much experience a familiar has gained. They gain 3 XP for hitting an enemy and they gain 2,000 XP when Shanoa absorbs another copy of their own glyph. So, according to this math, it takes 17 copies (rounded up from 16.38 and not taking into account enemies hit/killed by the familiar itself) of the glyph to grow one level. If the familiar is onscreen at the moment it gains a level, it will not immediately display its new abilities; it must first be sent away and summoned again.
