Desc : These giant horseflies are infamous for their predation on outlying hamlets and farms at night. They have yellow eyes, dark markings on their wings, and light brown striping on a dark brown body. Some varieties hunt horses exclusively, and they are called horseflies. All tend to be 1.5 m long as adults.
Cmbt : Che'tal hunt prey by using sonar, odor detection, and heat sensing organs. When prey is found,a che'tal attacks with a "bite", attempting to insert its hypopharynx- the mouth part it drains blood with. Any G or A attack means the che'tal has inserted it into a blood vessel and automaticly drains blood until it is driven off or consumes a number of wound points equal to its CON. Only after losing 75% of its stun and/or wound points will a che'tal fly to find easier prey.
Hab/Soc : Che'tal now need to breed in freshwater- preferably stagnate, but any slow moving water will do. Thus, most will be found within 75 km of such a body of water. They do hunt in swarms, but will turn on each other when times turn lean.
