The Lord of the Locusts (mostly refered to as simply The Locust) is a nightmare creature without physical shape or form and is tied with his servant Briar for the main antagonist of the original series.

Before the Series

Long ago, The Locust became tired of being a spirit without physical form and desired to become part of the physical world. However, in order to do this, he would need to possess the body of a mortal. He chose the queen of the dragons, Mim, as his host. Mim lost her sanity and went on a rampage. After a terrible battle that claimed the lives of many dragons, the dragons were forced to turn Mim into stone and bury her in the earth, trapping the locust in her.
