Bugs were used as jewelry and other adornments for kings, queens, and all royalty classes alike.
Nowadays, the sport is kept alive just for the thrill of the chase!

Looking for the bravest bug catchers in Val-shenn!

My name is Link; I proudly collect insects of all kinds!
I also educate other Kematas about the history and information pertaining to each species.
So hopefully, everyone will be less afraid of these silly guys!
I give rewards for any kind of bug, especially for those I don't yet have in my collection.

Below are bugs I accept:

A blacked-out image means the species has yet to be discovered.
If you're the first to catch one, your kemata will forever be remembered as the "founder" of the bug!
