Randolph Carter first appeared in the story The Statement of Randolph Carter (H.P. Lovecraft, 1919).

Boston author and mystic. In his early years, Randolph Carter became known as one of the Dreamlands' greatest travelers. The people of that land still tell the tale of his journey to Kadath in the Cold Waste to ask for the sunset city of his dreams, possibly the greatest task undertaken by any dreamer.

On October 7, 1928, Randolph Carter vanished in the ruins of his family's ancestral mansion outside Arkham. A few of his friends asserted that Carter had gone back to the land of dreams to become the king of Ilek-Vad, but this speculation was not taken seriously.[1]
