Lord of the Locust Host, Usher of the Apocalypse


The demon lord Deskari, Lord of Infestation and Locusts, is known as the Lord of the Locust Host and the Usher of the Apocalypse. Deskari appears as a horrible beast, human from the waist up, and locust-like below. Semi-solid wings—composed of clouds of locusts—protrude from his human back, and he carries a terrible scythe in his fleshy hands. Deskari’s unholy symbol is a pair of crossed locust wings dripping with blood.

Historically, his cult was active in the lost nation of Sarkor until his avatar and his followers were driven into the Lake of Mists and Veils by the god Aroden in one of his many miraculous deeds in 4433AR. Aroden’s death and the coming has allowed Deskari’s to reassert his influence in the region again in the form of the Worldwound.In fact, numerous reports coming out of the Worldwound indicate that Deskari is spending more time there.


Very few scholars understand the exact history of the rise of Deskari through the abyssal ranks to achieve the status of demon lord. The Abyssal mating of an old demon lord with a giant demon resembling an insect resulted in the ‘hatching’ of Deskari. Under the protection of the demon lord, Deskari rose in power within the Abyss eventually attaining full demon lord status himself. Deskari still admires his father and they maintain cordial relations with each other, while Deskari maintains a modicum of subservience to his father.

Deskari’s mother’s name is unknown and she clearly was destroyed at some point as Deskari has created his brutal scythe from her remains.
