Rlim Shaikorth is a gigantic worm-like beast and an antagonist in H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos genre also shared by the late horror writer and poet Clark Ashton Smith.

Overview

Rlim Shaikorth appears as a huge whitish worm with a gaping maw and eyes made of dripping globules of blood. One of the Great Old Ones' avatars is known as the White Worm and is part of Smith's Hyperborean cycle.

The White Worm travels on a gigantic iceberg called Yikilth, which it can guide across the ocean. In its colossal ice-citadel, the White Worm prowls the seas, blasting ships and inhabited land masses with extreme cold. Victims of the White Worm are frozen solid, their bodies appearing eerily white, and remain preternaturally cold — they will not melt nor warm even when exposed to fire.
