Dungeon Keeper Wiki

The Maiden (also known as the Maiden of the Nest) is a recruitable creature in Dungeon Keeper 2, added into the game with the 1.7 patch.


Her upper half looks like a comely human female, while her lower half is that of an oversized spider.


  • The Maiden is only available in version 1.71 and is absent in the Campaign Mode.
  • The Mentor will not announce her arrival in your dungeon, but her distinctive sneeze and laugh will alert you to her appearance.
  • The Maiden has no Elite counterpart.
  • She is one of the four evil researchers (Warlock, Vampire, Dark Angel, Maiden).
  • The Maiden of the Nest seems to be inspired by the Dungeons & Dragons monster called the "Drider". Like the Maiden, the Drider is a part humanoid/part arachnid creature with a penchant for evil deeds.
