While Cthulhu is a character, it's only hinted at: it is the lord of R'lyeh, an ancient being from the depths of space that came hundreds of millions of years ago to destroy the elder beings of our world.

"The Call of Cthulhu" is a story by American writer H. P. Lovecraft. The story is presented as a manuscript "found among the papers of the late Francis Wayland Thurston, of... More > Boston". In the text, Thurston recounts his discovery of notes left behind by his granduncle, a prominent Professor of Semitic languages at Brown University who died suddenly. A small bas-relief sculpture found among the papers, which the narrator describes: "My somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature.... A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings." The sculpture is the work of Henry Anthony Wilcox. At a meeting of the American Archaeological Society, a New Orleans police official named Legrasse asks the antiquarians to identify a statuette composed of an unidentifiable greenish-black stone, that "had been captured near New Orleans during a raid on a supposed voodoo meeting." The idol resembles the Wilcox sculpture.< Less
