Description (Initial Observations): A blight is a large, worm-like creature 3 meters in length with tough, leathery skin and bat-like wings with a 10-meter wingspan. It has small eyes and a mouth full of sharp, tearing teeth. Blights tend to have dark, mottled hides, when they can be seen at all.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: Blights have the ability to bend light, causing them to be invisible whenever they concentrate. When a blight attacks it becomes visible, gaining an automatic surprise. Blights will use this mutation while they are fleeing. Blights are completely resistant to weapons involving radiation, heat, or sonic effects. Their preferred method of attack is to wrap themselves around a victim constricting and biting.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Blights nest in high, rocky areas and sometimes in tall trees where they can swoop down on prey. They're usually solitary, but sometimes found in mated pairs. They lay clutches of eggs that hatch into young blights. The young eat their unhatched siblings before flying off on their own.
