The fusion of a human with a mosquito, Q-lex display extreme sexual dimorphism; while the female is a large and powerful predator, the tiny, helpless male clings to the abdomen of its mate, feeding on excess blood and continuously fertilizing her eggs.
The female Q-lex tracks warm-blooded prey by their bodily odors and attacks with her flexible, coiled lips, lined with teeth that are regularly shed and replaced throughout her lifespan. These vicious mouth parts behave like a twisting jackhammer to bore through prey and slurp up pulverized tissues.
Q-lex are attracted to electric lights, but peck at them until they break, which never ceases to surprise them.
