Description (Initial Observations): Ka'tal are mutant darners (the largest of the dragonflies), where Arns are skimmers. They are green with a blue abdomen.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: If attacking flying prey, a ka'tal will come from behind , forming a "net" with their legs to snatch up the prey. If it is to fast, the ka'tal will use atmokinesis to speed up (to 52). Ground targets are attacked with eye rays. If attacked with missiles, the 'death will raise a force field and attack the creature who threw the missile. If ground prey is weak, the ka'tal will land and bite it to death.Ka'tal may be found in groups, but they ignore each other (so a group may last only a day, a week or more).
