Gustaf Johansen first appeared in the story The Call of Cthulhu (H.P. Lovecraft, 1926).

Gustaf Johansen is a sailor from Oslo who served as the second mate of the ship Emma. On March 22, 1925, during a voyage between Valparaiso, Chile, and Auckland, New Zealand, the Emma was set upon by the ship Alert, resulting in the deaths of the captain and first mate. Johansen took command and pushed on, landing on an island the next day where six of his crew were killed. Rescuers found Johansen, the only survivor of the Emma's crew, on April 12. An enquiry at Sydney turned up very little, and Johansen and his wife moved from Dunedin back to Oslo. Shortly thereafter, Johansen died in a dockside accident.[1]
