Wilbur Whateley first appeared in the story The Dunwich Horror (H.P. Lovecraft, 1928).

Wilbur Whateley is the child of Lavinia Whateley and Yog-Sothoth. Wilbur grew up quickly, being able to speak when eleven months old and having almost reached eight feet in height at the time of his death. He was known to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather Wizard Whateley in holding rites on top of the hills near Dunwich.

Despite his poor reputation among the townsfolk of his native town, Whateley gained some recognition as a scholar of the black arts and corresponded with many knowledgeable individuals, including Professor Armitage of Miskatonic University. Whateley never fulfilled his potential, dying in a failed attempt to steal Miskatonic's copy of the Necronomicon. His body vanished under shocking circumstances. His reputation remains strong in the Dunwich area, and rumors as to his "twin brother", the Dunwich Horror, still abound.[1]
