" I can't draw what it really looks like 'cause it keeps changing. So I drew a botfly. That's not right either, but its less wrong then other things." - Bina, age 11 1/2The Botfly is an unknown being that Bina is working to defeat. The Botfly is considered to be evil, despite having never directly spoken to any characters (aside from Bina, though this was during a dream where the Botfly assumed the form of Lash). The Botfly has the mysterious ability to impart 'gifts' when a character looks directly at it. These gifts are supposedly the viewer's greatest desire or deepest wish at the time.[ref n]It has been known to hypnotize, coerce and otherwise persuade others to do its bidding.
The Botfly resides outside of time. This can be derived from the fact that both Bina and Kendra imply that the Botfly is 'below' them when they time-travel by breaking through the Cracks in Space-Time. The Botfly also appears to manifest in a frozen moment at the Astre Sucre Factory, similar to the Moment which was created by B3. This has been referred to as "The Other Moment," and it is where Bina first encounters the Botfly.
Appearance Editgreen light emitted by the Botfly is "pretty" or otherwise pleasant to look at.
