Golden Grasshopper had not been with the Locust Army long, when he was summoned to the Great Hall of Locusts. Locust Military Intelligence had singled him out for leadership. Grasshopper was asked to speak before the Locust Council of Nine.
He told them of the crickets, how he had jumped on the back of the owl, passed over the magic Bungle BungleMountains to the most important house on Earth and about his meeting with the three masters. He spoke of his initiation into the three arts of flower arranging, cooking and gardening, and his acceptance by the universe as a Golden Master.
The Council of Nine asked Golden Grasshopper to leave the room briefly, while they discussed his future role. Then re-admitting Grasshopper to the room, the leader of the Locust Council cleared his throat and said, “We are agreed that you Golden Grasshopper, should be assigned a squad of our most elite generals. You will train them in the three arts.”
