Andre Linoge is the main antagonist of Stephen King's Storm of the Century. He is a 4000 year-old wizard who carries a cane with a silver wolf's head on top of it with him and he is the one that terrorizes the people of a small town of Little Tall Island off the coast of Maine during a massive blizzard, ironically what they call the storm of the century. He is portrayed by Colm Feore.
He has killed some people and caused others to commit suicide and he knows some of the townpeople's darkest secrets. He even caused nightmares upon others.
What Linoge desires is an heir, one of the eight children he has enchanted in Little Tall, Maine. He reveals his true form (an impossibly ancient, dying man), explains that he is not immortal, nor a god, and needs someone to carry on his "work" once he can no longer do it himself. He states that "in matters such as this" he can not simply take the child he desires, but he can punish. If the town refuses his request, he threatens to kill the children in their sleep and force them to march into the sea two-by-two, as he claims to have done at Roanoke, Virginia, centuries before. With that, he leaves them with one hour to make their decision.
The child he wanted which is later chosen as Ralph Anderson, the son of police chief Mike Anderson and he manages to make him become like him, which his own father had to witness in San Francisco nine years later.
- Andre Linoge's last name spells "Legion" which some of the townspeople including Mike Anderson believed to be the mythological demon of Biblical tradition.
