Large dragonflies that are pervasive in any place with ample enough water to support them, these flies have developed a number of abilities, including a potent natural poison and a crude control of the water element. Over time certain members of the family have branched out to more arid locales, including the Attohwa Chasm and Meriphataud Mountains. Despite these dry conditions, the flies are able to retain sufficient water content to attack their predators with their water based attacks.

Their massive wings can be used by crafters to create various items, and the flies of Valkurm Dunes are sometimes hunted as a test for low-level adventurers looking for the parasitic Damselfly Worm for their sub-job quest. One of the more notorious monsters in Vana'diel, Valkurm Emperor, is a member of this family and can be spotted at times in the dunes as well.
