— Overlord (Worlds Apart)
This Overlord is tasked with commanding all the Overlord forces in the Eastern United States, which includes battling the Skitter rebellion.
Through his actions in the episode Worlds Apart we learn that Overlords can communicate through harnessed children telepathically the same way skitters do.
The history of this particular Overlord, and the role he played during the Invasion of Earth is unknown. He was also known to have studied humanity in great detail prior to the war.
However, he is presumed to be a leader or at very least an individual of great importance in Overlord Society.
Opening Negotiations with HumanityEdit
When Tom was captured, this Overlord was chosen to negotiate. He ultimately makes mankind an offer of "Sanctuary" in exchange for mankind's surrender. Tom calls this little better than a prison camp and the Overlord reveals he (and the others) have studied mankind's history.
Tom asks why the aliens attacked since humanity was interested in peaceful contact when they came. The Overlord then lists mankind's violent history with disgust calling mankind primitive and inherently aggressive with the invasion being the best recourse.
When talks broke down he issued an ultimatum, demanding Tom take him up on his offer. Tom refuses before attacking the Overlord with a shock stick before being subdued.
The Skitter RebellionEdit
Later this Overlord would be tasked with finding and defeating the Skitter rebellion which, after a century of failed coup attempts, was finally gaining momentum. Despite his later bravado, claiming that the rebellion would soon be easily crushed, Ben (who had made telepathic contact) claimed that the Skitter revolution terrifies him and presumably the other Overlords as well.
The Overlord was later captured by Tom Mason and others during a failed abduction attempt on Ben Mason. Karen Nadler along with a battalion of Skitters and Mechs, and some new species of alien surrounded the hospital in an attempt to reclaim him.
Tom decided to question the Overlord, he responded through Ben, saying that humans were killing each other off while fighting over failing resources. When asked why the Overlords were on Earth, the Overlord responded that it was none of his concern. When asked about the Skitter rebellion, he responded simply stating that they would defeat it. He believed that humans were weak due to sentiment, he then made Ben collapse and his nose started to bleed, Tom asked him to stop, and he did as he had proven his point, Tom then shot the Overlord wounding him.
Anne did her best to patch the overlord up, but his strange physiology meant that he could not be saved without medical assistance from the other Overlords.
Karen was soon allowed to see this and she was greatly disturbed to find him wounded, going as far as trying to attack Tom. Tom then used the wounded Overlord as a bargaining chip, let them escape so the Overlord could be saved.
The Battle at The WeaponEdit
When members of the 2nd Mass infiltrated the construction site (after a tip off from the Skitter Resistance) this Overlord managed to capture Tom, Anne, Hal, Maggie, and Captain Weaver. He then had Karen torture them for information, eager to learn to how they managed to find him and the weapon. As Karen was about to use an electric weapon on Anne, she revealed to Tom that Anne was pregnant.
Tom gave in and was about to reveal the information, when the Skitter Resistance intervened. In the resulting melee, the Resistance defeated the Skitters enslaved to the Overlord, Karen fled and Red Eye himself engaged the Overlord in combat, who used his wrist blades to defend himself. While the Overlord managed to kill Red Eye in the resulting battle, Tom took the Skitter weapon and struck the Overlord repeatedly, killing him through blunt force.
