Background: Found on Maridun as well as on many other worlds, the carrier butterfly is a colorful insect roughly the size of a Human hand. These simple creatures have two qualities that make them uncannily good at being communications devices: their strong verbal-association memory, and their ability to replicate long sequences of sounds. As a result, carrier butterflies can be trained to recognize the commands of their masters, fly directly to specified locations or individuals, and replicate lengthy messages. Although they fly slowly, compared to instant communication by comlink, carrier butterflies are so numerous in the wild that finding and intercepting a specific butterfly is nearly impossible. Thus, the carrier butterfly offers a secure, albeit slow, method of sending orders and intelligence across long distances.
