Civilization Stats

Tier 9: Exploration: Their civilization is vast in their ability to cover large parts of the planet via underground passage ways. They also have massive monsters that help them get far and ride for both travel and for war, though they are of this Tier, they have gun and explosive weapons akin to atomic and industrial age.

Power Source

Nature: Mutation Enhancements (The Locusts were born from exposure to the Immolation which enhances their physiology to make them stronger than the standard human)

Psychic: Telepathy (Through the Queen by some unknown means, she is able to communicate with her warriors from far distances via telepathic communications)

Conquest Stats

Unknown: They are a people that lives underground, thus their conquest is unspecified, although it is noted that the hollows are spread out across the entire crust of the planet Sera.

Power Stats

DC: City: The Riftworm is capable of sinking entire cities just by burrowing under them. Unknown: Krylls storms that hit entire cities and eat everyone in it, labeled as "Life Wiper". Large Building: The High Priest Skorge is capable of cutting a armored tank in half with just just Chainsaw Staff. Large Building: Their large beasts such as the Brumaks and Seeders can destroy buildings and damage armored vehicles. Small Buildings: some of their smaller beasts and large weapons are capable of damaging smaller vehicles and large portions of buildings. Room: Locust heavy weapons and grenades can cause such damage as they cover a large area of effect. Wall-Street: Standard Locust Drones and Boomers attacking strength and weaponry.

Durability: City: Riftworm was basically immune to all but the most devastating of human weapons. Large Building: Skorge and General Karn capable of tanking such attacks, such as a Lightmass bomb that destroyed a large museum and Gears guns that could match his weapons. Small Building: Large Beasts and Bersekers without the basics of armor are vulnerable to heavy weapons. Room: Boomers with shields can stop weapons lower than that yield. Wall: Boomers standard durability. Room: Drones standard durability.

Speed: Hypersonic: Skorge can outpace several soldiers and even evade them with near instantaneous speed in a large room. Superhuman+:  Flying Monsters speed. Athletic: Locust Drones sprinting speed. Peak Human: Wretches running speed. Athletic-Normal: Boomers running speed. Athletic-Normal: Brumaks walking and running speed.

Skills Stats

The Locusts are capable of surviving inside underground caverns for their lifetime spans (with the exception of toxic, unregulated mutagens such as the immulsion). They are capable of taming beasts which they can use are vehicles or weapons of war. They can seemingly reproduce at a high rate to make sure that they don't lose their civilization to extinction.

Strengths/Pros

As their name suggests, they are (at times) a ravenous horde that raids surface areas, killing and destroying everything in sight. They tend to use hit and run or sneak attack tactics with the use of their emergence holes in the ground. They are not at all savage or unintelligent, as their leaders have so proven, General RAAM takes a tendency to hack enemy comunications to listen in on their enemies movements. Later on, their tactics changed by taking prisoners to work as labours or just simply torture them.

Weaknesses/Flaws

Their biggest weakness is mostly their blind devotion to their queen which would at times lead them blindly to their deaths. They are easily vulnerable to biological or chemical weapons that is not of their own design.
