These large, beetlelike insects were once found in forested areas throughout Quon. Unveiling their encased wings for flight causes the ladybug's brilliant red shell to splay, displaying two dorsal, jet-black circles. These resemble a pair of oversized eyes, and are intended as a warning to potential predators. The ladybugs were viciously hunted by adventurers during the Crystal War in order to develop new armor, eventually seeming to disappear from Vana'diel. For many years, it was generally accepted that no ladybugs existed in Vana'diel after the end of the Crystal War.

However, upon the recent development of wool grease by ambitious cooks and synergists, and the subsequent distribution of said product into the hands of Beastmasters, skilled Beastmasters have been able to call living ladybugs to their sides in present-day Vana'diel, known as Dipper Yuly. This shows that although Ladybugs can no longer be found in the wild, they are still living in hiding in present-day Vana'diel, perhaps in areas that have been closed to adventurers since the end of the Crystal War, such as Vunkerl Inlet (S) and Grauberg (S).

During the daytime these insects experience a variety of unidentifiable status boosts. At night, their aggressive nature is replaced with a more passive temperament.

Historical Background[edit]

The insect known as the ladybug in North America, ladybird in all other English-speaking countries (e.g. Britain, Australia), or lady beetle is a type of beetle belonging to family Coccinellidae. They are generally black in appearance with some white spots and had red, orange, or yellow wing covers (elytra), often with black markings on it. Color and markings vary by species. The ladybug feeds on aphids and shieldbugs and is thus considered beneficial for gardens and agriculture, though have been known to be herbivores when prey aren’t available. Some species are also known to migrate en masse or hibernate during winter. The most familiar ladybugs, deep red elytra with black spots, belong to genus Coccinella, which is found in North America, Europe, and Asia.

There is a lot of superstition centering around the ladybug in Europe, usually beneficial. Among the most common beliefs are if a ladybug lands on a person, their wish will be granted, if a ladybug flies into a person’s bedroom, the person will have good luck, and if a ladybug lands on a woman’s hand, that woman will be married within the year.
