Sorry if this is a silly question, but can Haemonculi levitate?

I ask because they always seem to be depicted in the air - with both feet clearly off the ground. And, I believe they're also described as "drifting" across the battlefield, which again implies that they are in the air.

So, can Haemonculi levitate somehow, or do they just really like raising themselves on their tails? Neutral

I would note that some artwork shows Haems specifically floating.
I always presumed they had some sort of low power anti-gravity device they wore.

From the 5th edition codex, page 37:
"They move with an ethereal grace, sometimes held aloft by suspensor crystals, sometimes slithering along on elongated spine tails."

I told myself that I wasn't throwing out the old codex for Splintermind reference material, but I am truly relieved that it actually did come in handy Razz

In the BL novel `Firedrake` the Haemie is riding a skyboard.

If you don't let one rip for millenia you start to levitate...also explains the bad temper

Yes, seeing as they have altered their anatomy a lot...makes you wonder all sorts of things about their habits.

And their love lives...starting with games of `guess my gender tonight.`
