Morlock is a character in Octopath Traveler. He claims ownership of the entire town of Quarrycrest and its mines, and is the main antagonist of Tressa's Chapter 2. He has a bodyguard called Omar who is the boss of this chapter.
Morlock is first seen in Quarrycrest alongside his bodyguard, Omar, as the self-proclaimed owner of the entire town and mines, taking any gold found by his workers and giving them a pittance in exchange.
After hearing about the success of merchants selling skystones in the town, Morlock confronts them with Omar, with the latter telling the merchants that the skystones now belong to him. After Ali, one of the merchants, argues against it, he has Omar subdue him and has him taken him back to his manse to further break him physically and mentally. Before departing, he confiscates Tressa's merchandise and gives her 500 leaves for it.
Back at his manse, he marvels at his fortune and as he taunts Ali further, he is confronted by Tressa, the second merchant from earlier about how he treated Ali and his workers. Outraged, he sends Omar to battle her to teach her a lesson. After his defeat, he and Omar retreat from the manse and leave Quarrycrest.
