Chafer is an adult male HiveWing that appears in The Lost Continent. He is the owner of The Sugar Dream, supposedly the best sweet shop in Cicada Hive. His voice is described to be both oily and tense at the same time.
He is a red HiveWing, with a long tail. His expression is described as usually haughty and disapproving.
He is shown when Luna and Blue briefly talked with him while he was trying to help Lady Scarab in his shop. He was evidently annoyed with SilkWings being in his shop and tried to pressure them into leaving. When two more HiveWings entered The Sugar Dream, he agreed to help them first, even though he said he would help Blue and Luna. After the HiveWings left, Chafer tried again to get the SilkWings to get out of his store. This time, however, Lady Scarab interfered and produced an awful smell, in which Luna called "super stink powers", in order to force Chafer to let Blue and Luna go before her. Chafer was horrified and quickly served them.
"Who's your mistress? Is she new to this hive? She should know that shopping for luxury items is not a task traditionally entrusted to servants" - To Luna and Blue.
"My lady, I quite insist. We do not serve second class dragons before royalty in this establishment"
"My Lady! Please don't! I'll have to close my shop for the rest of the day! This isn't necessary!" - To Lady Scarab about her smell.
- He is likely named after the Chafer beetle, a species of beetle also known as a June bug.
- He is shown to be a firm believer in the Hive hierarchy.
