Cm is the parallel to C major. Now, C major contains a diminished mode which would be B Locrian. Cm is not parallel to the Locrian mode, it's parallel to B Locrian. You can only find parallels to keys, not necessary a scale, but I would assume the Locrian mode of Cm (assuming this minor is Aeolian then, it's the key of E), which is D# would prob be the associated parallel mode to B Locrian, both of which were derived from their key.

I don't play using much parallel harmony, I'm more of a diatonic fan, so I can't really vouch over how well particular modes will work with other modes in various keys. You just gotta mess around with em because somehow you can always find an application for it.
