Ancient Cthulhu[1] is a Great Old One, a being of tremendous power akin to that of a demigod. For now, he lies asleep in the corpse city of R'lyeh on a distant world far from Golarion, but he can reach across the voids of space to touch the sleeping minds of mortals despite his death-like slumber. He is regarded as the herald of the Outer Gods, and his unholy symbol is a complex rune surrounding an open eye.[2]


True followers of Cthulhu are almost always insane, driven to madness by haunted dreams. They gravitate to barely trodden places, infecting others with terrible visions of their master rising from his sunken city.[3]
