Black Company Wiki

A dragonfly demon was a type of giant demon bound to the Lady, two of which appeared in The Black Company. They featured very briefly in the Annals, and their size, speed, and power attested that they were only available to conjurers of the highest magnitudes.

The first such monster was summoned by the Lady to the Forest of Cloud, where it grabbed her prisoner – the traitorous Limper – and transported him to the Tower at Charm. An eyewitness, the Black Company Annalist Croaker, described the entity as a "luminescent".

Later, during the Battle of Charm, the second, similar-looking dragonfly demon was summoned by the Lady. This one smashed at high speed into the flying carpet being flown by a wizard who was posing as Soulcatcher.

The entities do not appear again in the Annals.
