Xhamen-Dor,[1] also referred to as the The Inmost Blot or The Star Seed, is a Great Old One which has as its unholy symbol a sphere of tendrils with two long descending tails.


Once the Great Old One had the form of a broken reptilian skeleton with pronounced growths of fungoid tendrils and infested many worlds. After some calamity for Xhamen-Dor, however, its form changed to just a single blot of its fungoid intelligence that was imprisoned within a comet. This comet collided with Golarion after its trajectory was altered at the time of Earthfall. The exact whereabouts of Xhamen-Dor is unknown, though his cult maintains the comet now lies beneath a remote lake. The Inmost Blot has begun to infect Golarion from his watery resting place turning victims into undead creatures powered by a combination of necromancy and Xhamen-Dor's fungal essence.[2]

  1. James Jacobs revealed that he created Xhamen-Dor for an unpublished short story written while he was still at school. Later, Jacobs introduced Xhamen-Dor into Golarion in Wake of the Watcher.
