André Linoge is the main antagonist of Stephen King's TV miniseries 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.

Linoge terrorizes the people of Little Tall Island during a massive blizzard, ironically what they call the "storm of the century".

He was portrayed by Colm Feore.


Linoge kills a number of people and causes others to commit suicide. He also knows some of the townpeople's darkest secrets. He even causes others to have nightmares.

What Linoge desires is an heir, one of the eight children he enchants. He reveals his true form (an impossibly ancient, dying man) and explains that, since he is not immortal nor a god, he needs someone to carry on his work once he can no longer do it himself. Linoge states that, "in matters such as this," he cannot simply take the child he desires, but he can punish. If the townspeople refuses his request, he threatens to 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 the townspeople with one hour to make their decision.

The child chosen is Ralph Anderson, the son of town constable Mike Anderson.



  • Linoge's last name spells Legion, which some of the townspeople, including Mike Anderson, believed to be the mythological demon of Biblical tradition.
