One of the stranger predators of the Farian Isles, the Nactrill attracts its prey with the florescent, gas-filled, balloon-like appendage that also allows it to float. As with various Earthly creatures, such as lampreys, electric eels, and platypuses, the Nactrill relies on electroreception to detect its prey, and kills them with a powerful electric charge.

These silent drones do not sleep, nor do they ever seem to rest except the coldest days of the year when the usually solitary Nactrills congregate, forming impressive swarms in order to stay warm. They are thought by many to be distant relatives of the giant Nexalae, but the isolated conditions of the Isles caused them to develop extensively and uniquely.
