Skypest are exceedingly annoying insect-like creatures who spend their time hovering around the skies of Gnosticus IV.
Skypests feed on blood, and will drain anyone they come into contact with. Rather like a dragonfly in appearance, they are immune to neural shots and can only be killed when they pause to rest on the ground, where they can be squished with something pointy, like a pogo stick.
Although stupid, they are reasonably fast and can be quite a nuisance, hence the name, a contraction of sky and pest.
