The demon lord Deskari, Demon Lord of Infestation and Locusts, is said to be 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 the terrible scythe Riftcarver in his fleshy hands.
Deskari’s unholy symbol is a pair of crossed locust wings dripping with blood.
Deskari is said to be the son of Pazuzu. Historically, his cult was active in the barbarian nation of Sarkoris 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 4433 AR. Aroden’s death and the coming of the Age of Lost Omens has allowed Deskari to reassert his influence in the region again in the much more obvious form of the [[Worldwound.]] In fact, numerous reports coming out of the Worldwound indicate that Deskari is spending more time there.
Deskari’s cult is most powerful in the lands that once made up the realm of Sarkoris. This region is now the demonic wasteland of the Worldwound and as such no longer harbors many of Deskari’s mortal worshipers. Instead his cult seems to have spread into other northern nations infecting the nearby lands of Mendev, Numeria, and Brevoy.
Deskari’s unholy text is One Thousand Voices in My Flesh
