About

Visitors to this mysterious land often encounter giant butterflies.

The extraordinary patterns on their glistening wings are admired by all.

These brilliantly-colored beasts begin their lives as fey caterpillars. After many years, the caterpillars spin cocoons and slowly transform into their butterfly form. Giant butterflies feed off the nectar from the large flowers.

Common Mounts. Many creatures attempt to gain a giant butterfly mount. However, these creatures are selective.

They refuse to let any evil creature ride them. Some fey believe that these creatures will bring them good fortune.

Wind Power. These beasts beat their wings to knock down anyone or anything that attacks them or their rider.
