An ARES team on nighttime patrol came across a strange sight 4 days ago when a mysterious glow drew them to a small clearing. They found the source of the glow to be an unfamiliar substance covering three dead bandits. Between the bandits they found an animal they did not recognize. Further investigation revealed that it was injured and unconscious, but alive. Accord scientists have been studying the animal.

: Glowbug
Habitat: [Unknown]
Researcher’s Notes: The glowbug is a large flightless insect, standing just under a meter tall on average. The bioluminescent chemicals in its thorax from which it gets its name also serves as its primary defense mechanism. When threatened, it has the ability to spit these chemicals over long distances with extreme precision. Though stable when still inside the glowbug’s body, the mixture becomes extremely volatile when exposed to open air. It has been observed to stick to a surface for several seconds before igniting with devastating results.
