The suggestive proboscis, or feeding tube, of this creature is pointed and barbed so it enters cleanly and firmly into the skin of its victim, allowing it to drink its fill of blood. The bloodsucking creature also has beautiful fairylike wings and big compound eyes. The antennae and most of the body are covered by sparse hairs. Do not mistake anything here for cute or ethereal. It is after your blood. Creature design inspired by a mosquito's head.
