The Hydra Fly as the name implies is a flying insect that injects its troublesome victims with small quantities of poison so similar to Aqua Hydrii that even the most knowledgeable Apothecaries cannot distinguish between the two toxins. The Hydra Fly will only inject its poison into a creature if they are difficult to subdue as the poison reduces the quality of the food. Each Hydra Fly can inject ¼ doses of Aqua Hydrae. The danger to larger animals (including humans) is when a swarm decides to attack an individual creature.
The male Hydra Fly body is crimson in color with shades of mottled browns on its legs and head. The female Hydra Fly body is a lighter shade of crimson with a streak of blue on the underneath side of its body with shades of mottled browns on its legs and head.
