"I promise! I don't want to fight anyone! I just want to get Glowworm and go home!"
— Inchworm to Hazel, The Poison Jungle

Inchworm is an adult male HiveWing that was introduced in The Poison Jungle. He resides in Vinegaroon Hive.


Inchworm seems to be a pacifist, being terrified of the presumed extinct LeafWings and promising not to hurt them. He is also rather protective of his dragonet, as he instantly thought about her the moment he was "freed" by consuming the counterfeit "heart of salvation."


The Lost Continent Prophecy

The Poison Jungle

After being captured, Willow, Sundew and Hazel attempted to use the 'heart of salvation' to free Inchworm from Queen Wasp's mind control. As almost immediately after being fed the plant, he started worrying about his daughter, and they were convinced the antidote was real. However, this was a ruse created by the othermind, as it convinced Queen Wasp to leave him to maintain the illusion of a cure.



Inchworm shows great concern for his daughter, and the first thing he did when 'freed' from the mind-control was asked where she was. He also seemed very distraught over her being controlled, as she was too young to know how to fight.
