Fireflies were insects, capable of emitting a powerful glow.
Fireflies could be found on the planet Saleucami. One night, when Jek and Shaeeah Lawquane were playing hide and seek in the fields of their father's farm, several fireflies were hovering around the crops.
Fireflies were also found in the underworld of the planet Aleen, where several harassed a wayward C-3PO before being dispersed by R2-D2 with his built-in fire extinguisher. Later, a swarm of them guided the pair of droids to the grotto of Orphne, a mysterious reptilian nymph.
When Qui-Gon Jinn spoke to Yoda regarding the secret of the Force spirit process, he told Yoda the Force would guide him. The Living Force appeared to Yoda in the form of glowing fireflies and led him away.
