A large bee-like creature which inhabits the higher reaches of Carpet fibres. They are striped and hum constantly, they are fiercely territorial, especially against the threat of other Carpet-dwellers seeking to rob their store of honey-like syrup. Like bees they have a deadly sting, and show some intelligence and co-operation when acting as a collective. The Munrung, Deftmenes and other Carpet peoples know better than to annoy them, as their sting can be deadly. This insectoid life form is best avoided in The Carpet People.
