Locust was Vain's first child, a complete failure in his eyes Locust was a great mage, a superior scholar, and one of Vain's friends before his undeath. Vain picked him to be his first because the man had had experience with undeath as it was rumored he aided his former master into lichdom. Locust however was not prepared for vampirism and when he awoke one night to his long dead friend Vain telling him he has become one of the undead, it snapped the mans mind. That night Morgan Lethurg went to sleep, and awoke Locust. Locust used his magic to conjure swarms of bugs to cover his escape, he lived in the sewers of many major cities, in which rumors of a rat king would always rise. Locust would often leave vampiric rats behind in cities he visited.
The sewers are made for our kind, filthy tunnels for a filthy race. The rats and snakes and bugs are our equals, embrace our sisters.
Clergy and Temples
The Clergy of Locust are shunned by most of the other clergy in this pantheon, though not violently excluded they are not welcome in normal vampire society, Lady Nocrat's followers do however trade with the Locust brood, while they don't see eye to eye they do have similar interests. Locust's temples are always in sewers in major cities, they more often then not are in flood overflow chambers that have been sealed off, cities pay big rewards for information in Locust shrines leaving the followers of Locust to never stay in one spot for too long.
Like a graying wizard with wild unkempt hair, cockroaches and centipedes crawl from under his robes, his eyes glow black. The god holds a broken piece of glass tightly in one hand, though it drips blood the blood is a powerful acid, leaving holes wherever the god travels.
