  Mantrid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By the end of season two Mantrid's drones composed 64% of the mass of the entire Light Zone and were poised to rapidly finish consuming the rest of it.
Mantrid and a few of his drones also managed to slip through the portal as the Light Zone ended, his own ship destroyed so that only a small computer core carried by a single drone arm was left of him.
Mantrid makes a short appearance in the third season as well, resurrected on the desolate planet Fire to suffer punishment for his choices.

 The Official Lexx Fan Club! The Story So Far...Series 2
Mantrid agrees under duress to wake the insect and make it produce Protoblood for Kai, but once it's awake, Kai shatters Mantrid's jar and transfers the Insect Essence to the Larva, causing it to awaken properly.
Mantrid's assistant takes the remains of Mantrid, and the "transferrence" organ from the insect and uses the organ to transfer Mantrid's mind into a machine that he has been building to try to escape from the prison world.
Mantrid is now part man, part insect and part computer all housed in the body of a small spaceship.

 Mantrid - the hoopy mad scientist
Mantrid's head and the blue insect transference organ (that contained His Shadow's essence) are currently devoid of any essence and are therefore quietly rotting in a smelly heap in the spaceship.
Mantrid's ugly mush decomposing in a putrefied mess with that that large blue insect thing rotting alongside must make the smell unbearable - in fact, I think there may even be maggots and stuff in there and the flesh would be all oozy and discoloured.
So, Mantrid AND His Shadow's essence became a new entity in the spaceship (designed to carry and keep alive Mantrids brain after his death) and it is the spaceship that is the arch-baddie of the series.

Mantrid became posessed of the Divine insect essence which wanted to completely eradicate humanity from the universe.
Xev, and eventually Stan, realized that it was no use running, even if it meant certain death to stay...and from then on the show always began with the song of the Brunnen G (Kai's race), that they sung when they went into battle expecting to die.
Lyekka, a man-eating plant entered Mantrid's superstructure and killed what remained of his physical body, imprisoning him in a machine, which the crew of the Lexx eventually reached and Xev crushed him under a boot heel.

The Core and Arm goes down hard, the Mantrid drones can fly anywhere in the universe without problem, they quickly grow to such numbers that they can disassemble planets in seconds, before long they have many galaxies converted into drone arms and they quickly eat up the TA galaxy.
Mantrid consumed everything in the universe, including the stars and planets right down to the core, in less than a year.
All Mantrid has to do is stay FAR FAR away from the Culture galaxy and then collapse the universe.

 WordWrights: Lexxplorations: Mantrid.
Zev keeps insisting that Kai is "coming alive" because he seems to be acquiring 'motivation' (daft reasoning, if you ask me....): in answer to Mantrid's question she defines being alive as "capable of waking up and killing people" - though to be fair to her she was talking about the GigaShadow larva at the time...
And Mantrid comes out with probably the most significant comment to date (and one which I suspect with be given form later in the series, and not just with regard to the human-insect-machine hybrid he becomes):-
If I've understood the episode correctly, the only way Mantrid could transfer his own essence into the vessel he'd built was by using an Insect's transduction organ.

Mantrid clearly knows what the LEXX is and seems to have specialised in part in ancient Insect biology, something which may have been of application.
Clearly Mantrid's imprisonment precedes the events of IWHS or at least GS since the knowledge of Mantrid's location is known to Kai through the final Divine Shadow.

 Lexx LogBook - HTML edition 1.0
Mantrid's knowledge was critical to the Divine Order, but his knowledge and ambition were both dangerous enough that he was kept alive but imprisoned.
But under the Divine Shadow's influence, Kai attacks Mantrid and instead transfers the Shadow's consciousness to the insect - and the prospect of a new insect race hunting down all human life is imminent, unless Zev can convince Stan to destroy the planetoid while she and Kai are still on it.
But even with this new tactic, Mantrid's drones outnumber 790's a million to one - and the collapse of the light universe has progressed too far to be stopped.

Actually, Mantrid has another very pivotal line, when he mentions that perhaps this is some sort of punishment for all the damage he doesn't remember doing.
The scene with Mantrid kneeling over Kai's prone body is kind of eerie if you think about it.

Kai's method for mending himself is a suitably daft yet simple one, but it's only at the very end that things look like they're going somewhere when a balloon picks up Kai and Prince returns.
The only other thing worthy of note is that 'Mantrid' likewise awoke to his new life and there are further hints about the planet's mysterious reincarnation.
However, by the end, we still don't know why Mantrid is present or exactly what kind of place K-Town is. The questions are mounting up and it's time we had some answers.

Even if he started out with only a dozen or so arm drones, he could have billions of billions by the time he's done(and he'd be fairly quick about it, those arms work fast).
The Lexx tried to destroy Mantrid with it's main gun(truthfully, it's only gun), and the swarm of arms simply moved away from it on both sides.
I would assume so considering at one point there were enough of them that the universe collapsed in on itself (that and IIRC Mantrid didn't start on his little assimilation fest until after the Lexx was stolen, but I could be wrong).

 Dieter Laser - 'Mantrid'
Dieter Laser plays "Mantrid," the main recurring villain and general nuisance for the hapless crew of the Lexx.
Mantrid was originally the grand bio-vizier of the galactic despot addressed as His Divine Shadow, but his insane tendencies soon proved counter-productive, forcing his master to seal him into a large glass jar.
Mantrid remains as an unwelcome presence in the Lexx throughout much of the series.

There is a reason this final volume of four episodes is averaging a solid 5 stars.
The story of Mantrid gets more backstory with this episode, as well, as we learn that Mantrid was once protege to the cunning Brizon.
The guy who played Brizon is absolutely creepy and he has a verbal spar with Mantrid that made me almost pee my pants.
