I've wondered whether I have another book in me. The bloodfly epidemic coupled with basic information on life cycle and behavior, might make an excellent project.

– Bloodflies are exotic insects, unlike anything else found in Serkonos. I suspect they originated on the Pandyssian Continent.

– In groups of 3 or fewer, they are harmless. Individuals won't attack, leading me to speculate that each emits a scent that has a collective effect on larger numbers of bloodflies.

– Bloodflies are attracted to rapid movement and sound.

– Their nests can be broken apart, scattering the swarm. An in particular they nests are quite susceptible to fire.

– The insects require fresh corpses to lay their eggs, which hatch in breath-taking fashion, after a very short time. More corpses in a Serkonan city, say during a crisis or plague, mean more bloodflies.

– Interestingly, in the last part of a bloodfly's life cycle, they calm a great deal. Leaving the swarm, they molt, causing the wings to drop off. Afterward, each bloodfly lives a solitary existence. Very odd.

– Bloodflies are largely restricted to the South, preferring warmer climates. Like certain aging natural philosophers.
