If you're not already amazed with the amount of characters in Spidersilk the novel, then looking into the meaning of their names will really excite you. We've checked into many characters before, but Jeff Horus is one of my favorite complex heroes in the story. Jeff is amazing at helping Mark find out information about the intruders, but could this possibly be because he is named after one of the most famous Egyptian gods, Horus? Horus was an avian deity that was often depicted with a Falcon head. This really draws in an important detail from the story. If you think back to Ramses and his hostage, Draul, you may recall that Draul was given something to help him see the matter that is hidden from many. In this matter there were falcons and spiders, which were seen throughout the book as protectors and informers to Mark. Thus, Jeff Horus really lived up to his name.
