Originally, Spindle was just an ordinary spider in the Gorge of Eternal Depth until Chi dropped by Laval caused him to evolve along with other spiders and the scorpions and bats, and they gained an intense hunger for more Chi. They captured Crominus and Crunket and took them to the surface where they were showed the source of Chi, Mount Cavora. They then blocked up the falls so they could steal all the Chi, but were interrupted by the Tribes of Chima.
He tried to recapture the Lion Legend Beast, but ShadoWind stopped him. Spindle fled in terror after bumping ShadoWind on the head with his spear and the Lion Beast roared. Lavertus then gave it armor.
He went with Sparacon to Mount Cavora to steal the rest of the Chi, but they lost it when they were shot down. They then captured the Crocs and reclaimed the Chi, and made their Command Ship sink and tied them up so they couldn't swim. However, ShadoWind showed up and rescued the Crocs and tied up the Spiders, who were captured.
Crunket ordered Crooler to interrogate them, but she instead attempted to get them working together because she wanted the Chi as well. They got out of their chains when she was distracted by Plovar and they chained her up and took Plovar to Spinlyn so he could fix her broken fang.
Plovar made them collect "supplies" so he could do dental work for Spinlyn such as a grindstone from a slab, Oker Sorevent and whipper vine heels, which left them passed out.
He tried to steal the Eagle Legend Beast's eggs to use as supplies for Spinlyn, but Eris and the Eagle Beast stopped him.
He later tried to attack the Ice Tribe, but was frozen.
He was later held in Sir Fangar's ice trophy collection.
After the Great Illumination, Spindle and the Crawlers were turned nice and became friends with the cured Hunters and Chima tribes, celebrating Christmas with them.
