Monster type/species: Dragonfly

Dragonflies are known for their ability to hover in one spot for a very long time and for their darting from place to place.

In the Dakota/Lakota mythology, the dragonfly is equated with the mirage or illusion, because their wings beat so rapidly that the human eye cannot see it. In the Lakota tribe, this insect and concept of illusion was often invoked when they wanted to confused their enemies. Dragonfly represented the god or spirit of “Whirlwind.”

In Ireland, some fables told that if you followed a dragonfly, it would lead you to fairies. Others said that they were the steeds of fairies.

Dragonflies are so full of spiritual energy and a sort of magic, that they represent the ability to travel between dimensions.

(devil's needle lore: in europe it's called the witches’ animal, and they say Satan sent it on earth to cause chaos and confusion. In sweden, folklore says that dragonflies come around to check for bad souls - to weigh souls to be more ‘accurate’. They're believed to sneak up to children who tell lies and also adults who curse and scold, to stitch up their eyes, mouth, and ears.)

p.s. a devil's needle is just another name for "dragonfly" for those that just don't like 'em.
