Locusts of Chiron are rare native life forms, and “wild” locusts are rarely seen outside of periods of unusual mind worm activity. Periodically, a pre-boil mass of mind worms in a xenofungal bloom spontaneously, and for unknown reason, metamorphoses so that they all grow wings, whereupon the worms take off as a boil-swarm.

Though they cannot be captured in the wild, with proper breeding and bonding techniques, they can be bred in captivity and controlled by skilled brood trainers.
