Ythogtha

Ythogtha

Ythogtha is the second son and one of the Great Old Ones known as Cthulhu, and he first appeared in The Xothic Legend Cycle (also known as The Xothic Legend Cycle: The Complete Mythos Fiction of Lin Carter) series of the short horror stories by Lin Carter based on the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft, primarily on Lovecraft's stories The Call of Cthulhu and Out of the Aeons.

He resembles a gigantic, humanoid frog, or a Deep One, with only a single, huge eye in the center of his forehead like a cyclops. A dense mane and a beard of writhing tentacles grows from his head. Although never fully described in Lin Carter's own stories, Ythogtha is incredibly large; when the sorcerer-priest Zanthu attempts to free Ythogtha from his prison, he mistakes his god's clawed, slimy fingertips for mountainous heads.

The Elder Gods imprisoned Ythogtha in the Abyss of Yhe. He is served by the planarian-like yuggs and their lord Ubb, The Father of Worms. Ythogtha's legend is chronicled in the Zanthu Tablets.
