MythosEdit

Rhan-Tegoth first appeared in the story The Horror in the Museum (H.P. Lovecraft and Hazel Heald, 1932).

Rhan-Tegoth is a Great Old One who came to earth from Yuggoth three millions years ago, taking up residence in the Arctic. The sacrifices its primitive followers made maintained the Old One's strength and vigor. Later on, the people of the region forgot Rhan-Tegoth, and their former "god" lapsed into hibernation.

During the early 20th century, the curator of a London waxworks museum launched an expedition up the Noatak River from Fort Morton to the great ruined city where Rhan-Tegoth once lived. Finding the dormant god on a tremendous ivory throne, he took it back with him to London. This explorer disappeared shortly thereafter.[1]
