- HEIGHT: Hundreds of Meters Tall
- RANGE: Imprisoned in the Sunken City of R`lyeh Deep Beneath the South Pacific
FIRST ACCOUNT: Call of Cthulhu Short Story by H.P. Lovecraft (from Weird Tales – June 1926)
- THREAT TO HUMANS: Sleeping Cthulhu Emanates Constant Anxiety for All Mankind; Awakened…Very Bad News
The Legend: Be very quiet – especially if you’re anywhere near the South Pacific. You don’t want to disturb the all-powerful being hibernating deep below the surface of the ocean known as Cthulhu. He is a malevolent and massively imposing character who measures hundreds of meters tall when upright. This slumbering, subterranean, winged creature’s most unique physical feature is his tentacled octopus-like face. Simply looking at the Ancient One has been known to drive one insane.
He rests in a death-like slumber entombed deep beneath the ocean within the nightmare city R`lyeh. Even as this monstrous entity sleeps, his presence shakes the subconscious minds of the world’s population with apprehensive anxiety and angst. A dominant force amongst the pantheon of Great Old Ones.
