"Do you wanna ask stupid questions or do you wanna live? Which one do you wanna do?"
―Caspar Locke to Peacemaker[src]

Caspar Locke was a mercenary and acquaintance of Clemson Murn. He was hired by Amanda Waller to pose as the police captain of the Evergreen Police Department, so that he could keep Auggie Smith in prison and stop any investigation that would result in Peacemaker's arrest.[1] He was taken over by the Butterflies when they attacked the police station. The Butterfly inside him was killed by Peacemaker.

When Locke explained that Waller sent him to help him on the mission, Murn mentioned that the situation was delicate, so Locke promised to take charge.[1]

Meeting with Sophie Song[]

"Detective Song, you strike me as one of those uptight gals who pushes herself too hard to prove the men don't have one up on her."
"What?"
"We get it. You're good. You take the rest of the night off, give yourself a well-deserved rest."
―Caspar Locke and Sophie Song[src]

Legacy[]

"Among many items found in the search of Christopher Smith's home... was a diary, written by the suspect. Now the diary maintains that the world is inhabited by aliens posing as human beings. And it is the suspect's job to find and kill them. The diary links Smith not only to the murder of Annie Sturphausen... but directly to the murder of Senator Royland Goff and his family, and potentially victims... at the Glan Tai Bottling Company Plant massacre. Rest assured that every police station across the country has one mandate this morning. Find and stop the Peacemaker by whatever means necessary."
―Caspar Locke's butterfly[src]

The butterfly controlling Locke's corpse used his memories to locate the diary containing incriminating evidence against Peacemaker which the Butterflies then used to host a press conference ordering a manhunt against Peacemaker in an effort to slow down the 11th Street Kids' plans to defeat the butterflies.[2] The butterfly also remembered the apartment where his ally Clemson Murn was, so the next day the butterflies disguising themselves as police officers went to the place to find out what information he knew about their plan, killing him on the way.[3] The butterfly inside Locke eventually traveled with the other butterflies to Coverdale Ranch where they planned to teleport the cow away and avoid being found later, but it was shot and killed by Christopher Smith during a battle against Murn's team.[4]
