a large ant species that lives in the rock islands. Some specialized members of the colony have massive mandibles and small bodies. They are thrown like grappling hooks, attached to a spider-silk like line, to attach to large pieces of cloud stuff. Another specialized member is large, bearing great throwing strength and secreting the thread. These clouds are hauled in and eaten by the hive. Only when colonizing another island, the queen and males will temporarily form wings and fly to another island to colonize.
These creatures occasionally need to be repelled from Aircorn fields near the human settlement of Ouranoupolis.
