The Dragonfly, known as Moriyana in first two installment, are a species of gigantic dragonfly that, although obviously are insects, has several reptilian features.
These creatures are fearsome due to their high evasion rate, moderate HP, powerful attacks and their tendency in some games to bind the head and feet of party members, making them unable to flee or use healing skills.
