Diremites are a family of vilekin with a distinct social hierarchy. Their colonies are led by the females - the egg-laying "banemites" - of which there are rarely more than three or four. A small group of adult males, or "diremites," serve as soldiers, while innumerable larval mites, or "mitelings," attend to tasks of simple labor. Diremite colonies are nomadic, and will strip an area bare of prey before moving on to a new location. [1]

The diremite family consists of giant vilekin with a social structure similar to ants. Within a colony, the banemites are responsible for reproduction, common diremites for combat, and a multitude of mitelings for labor. Ever in need of sustenance, the colony pillages every area to which it spreads.[2]
