Usually, Entoma seems to have the appearance of a young girl wearing traditional Japanese attire. She has bright red eyes that never move or blink. She has mauve hair with twin chignons. She never exposes any bare skin except for her "face."
Her true form is that of an arachnoid, a spider-human hybrid. What acts as her "face" when disguised as a human, is actually an insect in the shape of a mask of a human face. Her hair seems to be rolled centipedes. Though she clearly appears inhuman in her novel illustrations, no one appears to notice her disguise and do not realize she isn't human till she takes her mask off.
She also disguises her voice as that of a young girl by using a leech that can steal the voices of its victims. It is unclear if the victim must be a human. Her own voice is harsh and grating, similar to that of Cocytus. Currently, she is using the voice of Arche Eeb Rile Furt.
Entoma likes to eat humans. Though she does not mind what kind of person she eats, her favorite part of a human happens to be the muscular arms of men. If there are no humans to eat, she eats snacks called "green biscuits" instead. She also tends to eat the insects inside the Black Capsule.
Despite treating humans as food, Entoma's nature is not considered extremely evil. If she comes across humans when she is sated and they do not bother her, she will ignore, and not eat them. She enjoys hunting for prey by weaving webs across Nazarick's 3rd and 6th Floors.
According to Entoma, she does not always act like a glutton. She likes to occasionally weave webs as a form of trap for prey. She does so simply for the thrill.
Entoma does not like her original voice. She becomes quiet after losing her fake voice. Thus, she does not speak unless it is necessary to do so in the presence of her master. However, Entoma is the type to harbor grudges towards anyone who damages her clothing or voice, like Evileye did, wishing to exact vengeance on them if the opportunity ever presents itself.
Entoma, like most of the NPCs made by the 41 Supreme Beings, takes immense pride and joy at her physical appearance, role, and job given to her by her creators. During her battle against the Blue Roses, where Gagaran and Evileye constantly insult her, Entoma in particular shows immense anger and hatred towards Evileye for mockingly asking her what kind of "sick freak" would want her to be their maid and serve them. This ends up causing her to enter into an unbalanced/uncontrollable homicidal rage for the insult not only towards her but, also her creator and the other Supreme Beings and severely damaged her sense of pride. Later, she promises Ainz that she would be the one to finish Evileye off, if ever needed. She hopes for Evileye to be the next victim she steals a voice from.
Entoma was created by Genjiro to be one of the battle maids, the Pleiades. They served as a last line of defense against intruders. However, because she is unlikely to be able to stand against enemy players who managed to come this far, her only real purpose was to distract the invaders until the guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown were able to fully prepare for their final stand in the throne room.

Mass for the Dead Arc
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
Entoma with the rest of her sisters greeted Narberal Gamma upon her return from the outside world. From the doppelgänger she gained some insight on human society and started practicing on how to communicate with them by referring them as "maggots". It gained some attention from Sebas Tian and Momonga who intervene to correct some misconceptions and focus their training on hospitality.
On an assignment to guard the Crack on the 6th Floor, she worked with the dark elf twins and Shalltear. The maid noticed that the latter was looking depressed though her attention was drawn to dealing with killing what appeared to be a slime based Chaos Beast. The insect maid would assist Yuri and CZ2I28 Delta in cleaning several piles of discarded debris on the 6th Floor by smashing them into sand and stored for later use. Other duties during Nazarick's reconstruction included acting as a [Message] relay for all parts of the dungeon. While cleaning the 6th Floor, Entoma got into an argument with Shizu over who was the older sister among the two. To determine who was eldest the two Pleiades maids competed in some tasks from Chaos Beast subjugation, cleaning to servicing Momonga. In the end the two are told by Momonga the title of eldest did not matter as it was not a detail that worried their creators that much as in his opinion they wanted them to get along and not fight. Entoma hearing that decided to cease their competition and make peace with Shizu, though it was temporary as the two maids got into a dispute over which chair they made for Momonga was better.
When Sebas Tian noticed that morale was dropping due to the constant repairs of Nazarick and the attacks from Chaos Beasts, he instituted his own initiative to have the Pleiades provide hospitality to the Floor Guardians and other critical staff. Entoma for instance was sent to help the protagonist and Slimeko organize the books in Ashurbanipal. On Entoma's first missions outside Nazarick, the maid helped Demiurge converted an abandoned mine near E-Rantel into a dungeon as to drive away adventurers led by Blue Roses. Using her abilities, Entoma subjugated all the Hanging Spiders that lived in the cave network. When they failed to defeat the adamantite adventurers, the maid engages Blue Roses. However when Evileye casted [Vermin Bane] and killed one of her minions, it forced her to retreat. Entoma would be called again by Momonga to scout a mysterious island that was connected to Nazarick via a temporary [Gate]. After receiving some water-proof gear such as the swimsuit, Entoma provided the Pleiades, protagonist and Slimeko surveillance information on the island using her insect summons. Thanks to the swarm they the maids were able to locate an abandoned pirate hideout, where the Pleaides had to battle a Giant Mollusk in order to claim the pirates' loot. Entoma would also be stationed at the mine to cull stray Stone Eaters that were busy eating Nazarick's hard worked, Prismatic Crystals.
Entoma would be paired with Shizu to chaperone some soldiers that came from beyond the Crack. While interacting with them on a training mission out in the skies of the New World, Entoma expressed some interest in eating the leader. The party is attacked though by by several flying type Chaos Beasts and a Giant Flying Chaos Beast which forced them to retreat.
During a Nazarick event like the Nazarick Fighting Tournament, Entoma was part of Sebas Tian's team "Butler and Maid". In the third match of the first round, her team fought against Crimson Temple and lost. Another event such as the Christmas party came to Nazarick, though Entoma was unable to participate as she was stuck on guard duty on the 6th Floor with CZ2I28 Delta and Cocytus but could hear the complaints of her sisters from the cantina as they were cooking Christmas Cakes.
At the time when most of the NPCs in Nazarick were being mentally influenced by a New Year's epidemic, Entoma found herself compelled to head to Fake Nazarick where it was transformed into a strange Chaos Zone. There she was encountered by Momonga and his team who were investigating the cause. Unaware of the danger to Entoma all was fine despite the eerie situation and concentrated cooking mochi, a skill she was temporarily given due to the mental control, using Mochi Type Beasts.
When Shiramochi-ō, the mastermind behind the New Year's effect over Nazarick, was defeated by Momonga and his allies that should have been the end of the spell over the Nazarick and the NPCs, however the entity used the last of its power to restart time, creating a loop of the same events that led to the New Year's epidemic with some slight changes. Once again Entoma, was under the mental influence as in the previous timeline but rather than finding herself all alone in the middle of a Chaos Zone, she was with the Pleiades and Pandora's Actor waiting for Momonga and his team to play karuta. After Momonga and his team won, the party was given a treasure bag and mallet as prizes. The spell was broken after the character Shiro who was actually a regressed Shiramochi-ō willingly allowed himself to be killed by Momonga. Though the maid had no recollection of what happened.
The insect maid would continue to serve Nazarick, called together with Narberal and Shalltear to clear the regions surrounding the dungeon of Chaos Beasts in the air. Other times like during the second summit of the Tripartite Alliance, Entoma was stationed to lurk in the sewers to monitor the area near the venue of the conference. Using an insect summon to scout the surface, she lost contact with it. Worried she later used [Message] with Shizu to learn that the inner city guards were having a skirmish with a riot of the people. In the commotion, she sensed that her summons was crushed underfoot by the mob.
The conference was disturbed by a greater threat of a horde of Chaos Beasts approaching the city. When the protagonist volunteered to head out to deal with the monsters before they reached the city, Entoma and Shizu secretly met with him and his team at the north gate to support him. They cut through the waves of Contaminated Beasts and Chaos Beasts until they came across a Double Sword Chaos Beast. The two maids almost defeated the creature only for it to retaliate and use Martial Arts that sent Entoma back by its attacks. The beast was regarded as a severe threat and eliminated thanks to the combined might of the covert agents and undercover adventurers. Once it was killed credit was given to the protagonist to bolster his image.
Entoma would interact with some new visitors from the Crack, and assist implementing a method that used dating to seal entity-like spirits. On one such occasion she monitored as date between Momonga and Albedo under the guidance of the visitors and also served Kinako Bread to a dangerous corrupt spirit. More stranger occurrences happened like when Albedo temporarily became a maid, and helped settled a dispute with Entoma and Shizu, the latter who was angry at the Arachnoid for eating one of Kyouhukou's subjects while they were cleaning the Lemegeton. The two would participate in a raiding drill on the 9th Floor in the event of an attack. During the drill the maids had to prevent the intruder, being Shalltear, from reaching Momonga.
Entoma was sent out into the field with the Pleiades, acting as part of the vigilance team, shadowing the protagonist's mission to a seaside village to learn about a dwarf named Tsuibayaya who may have some connections with players. There the plan was complicated by the appearance of Blue Roses who were looking for the dwarf to acquire some armors he promised to the royal family. Entoma and the rest of the other Pleaides, with the exception of Solution and Narberal, kept to the shadows to avoid detection from the adamantite adventurers. It turned out that the dwarf was just a craftsmen who replicated items like swimsuits based on stories he heard. The dwarf wanted to create the perfect swimsuit but to do so he believed that he needed the scales of the Legendary Mermaid. As he refused to help the adventurers, he made a deal to have them retrieve the scales in exchange for his armors and services. After the adventurers agreed, the adventurers split to cover more ground. At that point Entoma and the rest of her sisters came out of hiding to assist the protagonist. Now equipped in her swimsuit, Entoma helped locate the place where the mermaid was said to live before she and the Pleiades retreated to avoid being seen by Blue Roses. Once the scales were acquired and given to Tsuibayaya, who finished making the Sage's Swimsuit and gifted it to Gagaran. Upon it completion and achieving his dream, the dwarf presented Blue Roses with the armors. However after they left the craftsmen was at a loss of what to do as he accomplished his life long dream. Taking pity on the dwarf, the protagonist had the Pleiades dress in their swimsuits to show the craftsmen the true swimsuits he was attempting to craft making him motivated to craft even better versions.
A haunting of the Tob Forest began to occur, and blame was put on evil spirits that were angry for being neglected due to the absence of the Harvest Festival. With Carne Village abandoned, Nazarick felt that the only way to resolve this was to complete the event to appease the spirit. Entoma helped the Pleiades, Aura, Hamsuke and the Death Knight set up the event. The event was adapted to a Bon Odori and the maids wore yukatas to commemorate it. However during the festivities at the village, they were attacked by a giant fox. In the confrontation, Entoma had to snap Shizu out of her enthrallment over the "cuteness" of the beast. While fighting it Entoma was surprised it could do magic similar to her talismans. As it turns out the giant fox was just a creature named Kyuko who spent a centuries long journey searching for beings similar to her. She had come to the Tob Forest hearing about the Wise King of the Forest and believed Hamsuke was a being similar to her. The hauntings were just her using invisibility while spying on Hamsuke and Nazarick's minions, the latter Kyuko assumed to be Hamsuke enslavers hence why she attacked. Once the misunderstandings were cleared up Kyuko was offered a place in Nazarick which she accepted and enjoyed the remaining hours of the festival.
When a group of new visitors from another world came to warn them about the Waves of Calamity, Entoma was part of their entourage, guiding them to the Tob Forest to have them assist in the Chaos Beast subjugation. There Enotma sees Hamsuke who after one of the visitors comments about the hamster being delicious causes her to get hungry. The visitors to Nazarick would be attacked by another group that came out of the Crack who were under the belief killing them would prevent the Waves of Calamity. Entoma and the rest of the entourage were ordered not to interfere until both parties intentions were made clear and if they were threats to Nazarick. Once it was made apparent that the new group were clearly unreasonable and the aggressors to the conflict, Momonga ordered the security to engage them and protect the former group. The Nazarick agents made short work of the aggressors and prepare to eliminate them however the visitors of both parties seemingly vanished.
At the time of the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth's attack on E-Rantel, Entoma posed as a Demon Maid and slaughtered the city guards that resisted the demons pillaging the city. The maid came into conflict with Gagaran who she engaged in battle, at which Yuri had to restrain her for getting too emotional in the battle.
Another Nazarick competition was being hosted, this time with the prize being the honor of competing against Miyoshi, Momonga's bathing attendant. Entoma was a contestant in the Miyoshi Cup. The maid passes through the first three competitions, but fails on the fourth. The challenge was cleaning a room infested with cockroaches with the judge being Kyouhukou who has her disqualified for eating his subjects.
Entoma handling communications outside Nazarick, received a priority [Message] from Cocytus that the Great Lake area was being frozen by a abnormal cold wave threatening to freeze the lizardmen and driving the native monsters from the northern monsters. A responses for the emergency was required and so Entoma along with Lupusregina and Shizu were sent to determine the cause of the weather change. Before they left they were given Christmas Costumes to protect them from the frigid temperatures. They made their way towards the northern mountains following the source, on occasion fighting beasts they were trying to escape for the cold. Due to the extreme temperature Entoma used the meat collected from the attacking monsters to make a sherbet though was warned by Lupusregina that it would spoil her appetite. The maids finally came to a cave where the found a Crack and the Frozen Giant that was continuously bashing anything that emerged from the phenomena, its strength creating the wind pressure that was creating the cold front. The monster proves to be very formidable but Entoma was able to deduce a weakness in its structure allowing the maids to set fire on it and cause to crumble. After their successful mission the group returned to Nazarick just in time for the second Christmas party where Entoma engorged herself on meat dishes.
Some old visitors to Nazarick returned being harassed by an evil clone of one of their associates. In a plan to seduce the clone and seal her power, Entoma participated in a plan to set up an open-air market where she and Yuri man several booths with goods to set the mood for the date.
The Pleiades were called into session by Yuri to brainstorm some ideas on what kind of chocolate she should help Aura make for Project Valentine. Though Entoma's input on chocolate was less than helpful as she compared the confection to bugs from the Black Capsule. The maid was one of the judges for the taste testing for the chocolate confections.
