Gabriel Grey is the Locust, protector of the Great Jungle Bi-Ohm. Defending it from the evil corporation Ender Inc and its illusive leader Exeter Ender, who wishes for nothing more than to exploit the mystic powers that dwell deep within its mysterious flora and fauna.

Injecting himself with a rare jungle serum, mild mannered scientist Gabriel Grey gave himself the to power to absorb the energy of other living things and use that power to enhance his own super abilities of flight, leaping/kicking and piercing super-sonic chirp, all of which he uses to protect the poor tribal people that live in the Great Jungle.

The Locust, the only beacon of light that shines from within the deep, dark jungle!

Follow the adventures of "The Locust" in his very own comic. Experience the adventure!

Can you add more to this skin? Like use the 1.8 3D-ness to it, I reckon you could make this look even better!

Yeah, I know. I was smiling like an idiot when he arrived to save the day and laughed like crazy when he totally sucked. Didn't even know they were gonna use it but totally love that they did. A real honour. :D

I'm hoping to get Tarrlok done soon and General Iroh (both from Legend of Korra). After that I REALLY have to get Part 5 of the comic done. You know what, I'll start tonight.

k dude

can't wait for the ending
if i knew how to i would make a kick butt animation based on it (with your permission of course)

p.s they only just said that the legend of korra is coming out in australia

Yeah, that sounds about right. Australia is always one of the last places to get US shows, especially those that aren't really well know animated shows. I've got it all on my computer so don't have to worry about tracking it down. Did the same with Avatar, so hard to make sure I got to watch every episode so I just streamed it.

gabrial grey was the name of the evil guy "sylar" that was the main conflict through most of the series "Heros" (with the exception to the 2ed half of season 4) and he was NOT a scientist.

Although the names are the same (totally a coincidence btw) they are totally different characters. This isn't sylar it's a totally new character I made up for a PMC contest.

Just read the backstory, as soon as I read Gabriel Grey, I was like "Sylar..." I love when stuff like that happens!

Yeah, it's funny what stuff tweaks in your mind and you unknowingly use something you'd long forgotten about. Heroes was a favourite of mind so it's no surprise my memory wanted to use that name. :D

I have seen several stuff with that happening. I was looking on facebook yesterday saw a picture of someone and instantly thought of a certain anime character! First comment I saw was someone saying it looked like the exact anime character I was thinking of!

I've had that happen to a few of my skins too. Some of the characters I've never even heard of and when I google them they look so much like the skin I've made it's freaky. Guess there is such a large pool a creative people out there ideas are bound to overlap.
