Bellum (ベラムー Beramū?) is the primary antagonist of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Bellum is an evil being that drains other beings of their life energy and has plagued the World of the Ocean King for an unknown period of time. Bellum's motives are never touched upon; his singular agenda seems to be the continued draining of life force, and the perpetuity of destruction and strife. He is also one of the few villains to never utter a single line of dialogue.
Interestingly, Bellum was known as "Grande Octo" during early development, as he was originally planned to be a large Octorok.
