The stingwing is a mutated pre-War scorpion fly, a common scavenger and opportunistic carnivore insect. Named after its distinctive tail, which had a tendency to curl upwards much like that of a scorpion, the docile creature was harmless and had no venom. The tail was actually a sexual organ, containing sperm and special anatomic features allowing it to latch onto females. The radiation of the wastelands twisted it into something altogether different, giving it a venomous stinger in place of its genitalia and aggression to match. The stingwing, as it came to be called, became one of the most fiercest insects in the Commonwealth, pursuing prey relentlessly and stinging it to death.
Stingwings are particularly aggressive critters, found in the wastelands south of Boston. They are aggressive, dangerous, and attack in swarms while surrounding their prey. The disorienting venom is one of their biggest assets.
