Ythogtha

Origin: Zoth-Ommog appears in the Xothic Legend Cycle, written by Lin Carter.


In the Mythos

A body shaped like a broad-based, truncated cone. A flat, blunt, wedge-shaped, vaguely reptilian head surmounts this conical torso, and the head is almost entirely hidden behind swirling tresses. This hair, or beard and mane, consists of thickly carved and coiling ropes, like serpents or worms... Through this repulsive Medusa-mane of ropy tendrils, two fierce, serpent-like eyes glare in a horrible intermingling of cold, inhuman mockery and what I can only describe as gloating menace.
Lin Carter, “Zoth-Ommog (fiction)

Zoth-Ommog appears in "Dweller in the Deeps" as a gigantic entity with a cone-shaped body, a reptilian head, and starfish-like arms, and is said to be imprisoned by the Elder Gods beneath the seabed near Ponape, in the corpse-city of R'lyeh.


Heresies and Controversies

Claimed in Lin Carter's Xothic Cycle to be the son of Cthulhu and Idh-yaa, brother of Ythogtha, Cthylla, and Ghatanothoa, and like his older brother Ythogtha, Zoth-Ommog is served by Father Ubb and the Yuggs.
