MythosEdit

Ghatanothoa first appeared in the story Out of the Aeons (H.P. Lovecraft and Hazel Heald, 1933).

Ghatanothoa is a Great Old One left by the Fungi from Yuggoth within the mountain Yaddith-Gho in the now-sunken land of Mu. The people of Mu made many sacrifices to the god and its priests, fearing that Ghatanothoa would leave its home and seek prey among humanity if it was not placated. The sight of the Great Old One was especially feared, as it would petrify anyone who looked upon it, leaving them encased in leathery skin for eternity. Along with Ythogtha and Zoth-Ommog, Ghatanothoa is one of the three "sons" of Cthulhu and Idh-yaa spawned near Xoth. The astral race known as the Lloigor also serve Ghatanothoa.[1]
