Only six crew members are strictly required to operate the Bloatfly, but they generally contain at least a dozen guards to operate both the weapons and the incubation systems onboard.
Commonly found amongst the crew of the Bloatfly is at least one shaman who acts as the medic and spiritual leader of the crew and a war leader. They are usually powered by hired human mages, and use a minor helm, but some are powered by furnaces.
The Bloatfly has three levels, the upper decks, the main deck and the lower deck.
The upper decks contain the small cargo hold of the Bloatfly, the bridge and the helm. The main deck is home to the armory, crew quarters, mess, another small cargo hold, and swim tubes that lead to the submerged lower deck.
The lower deck contains the water-filled incubation tank, and the nutrient storage and delivery systems required to supply it.
