Let's say you see a bee nest, but red honey is present instead (not blood). You take a peek, and all of a sudden, a swarm of angry bees fly out and form a giant miniboss, The Beest.
The Beest would have a giant stinger, a stinger on each hand, little bee wings, and hovers slightly above the ground. It would attack by launching bees from it's arms, a giant jump to sting you, or also plainly stinging with it's hands. When low on health, the Queen Bee emerges from the Beest and rapidly attacks the player, and dies. She will drop a special crown that the bees follow. When worn, bees will follow you like pets and protect you from mobs that attack. They can be from any hive too. About that bee nest, once the Beest has been defeated, you can harvest it. It won't give you the best, however it will drop a red honey crystal. It can be crafted with a hive to create a red bee hive. The bees that fly in will be yours forever and you can ride them too (with the crown on). They don't fly up or down, but they hover while you are on them. They aren't extremely fast, but you have full control over the bee. You can have dyed bees to make them your own, however the whole swarm is that color.
