History and origins Edit

Rlyeh2 1280

Cthulhu is one of the three gods worshiped by the Esoteric Order of Dagon in Innsmouth and Deep Ones. He is a Great Old One and is their priest who came from outer space with his kin, a race known as Cthulhui. He and his minions built the great city of R'lyeh. Cthulhu and his army attacked another alien race called the Elder Things, who already colonized the Earth by that time. Although his army was stronger than the army of the Elder Things, the stars changed and Cthulhu couldn't live any more. So he fled into his city and fell asleep until the stars were righted again. Even though he is sleeping, he is still not entirely alive nor dead.

Later, when humans evolved, Cthulhu and the few of Cthulhu's kin that survived the changing of the stars would create the cult that the humans would later build to a higher level. Mantra spoken by the cultists, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", which translates to English as: "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming".

How Dagon and Hydra are connected with Cthulhu is unclear, but they may have came to conquer Earth with Cthulhu and his kin and likely brought Deep Ones with them.

In the Necronomicon, a mad Arab Abdul Alhazred writes ''That is not dead which can eternal lie.And with

strange aeons even death may die."

The Cult of Cthulhu waits Cthulhu's raise and new conquest.

''...the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from his tomb to revive His subjects and resume his rule of earth [...] Then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.''

Appearance Edit

Cthulhu is a colossal Great Old One. His appearance is a mix of dragon, octopus and human. He has wings that is unclear whether they are of any use to him, octopus head and other monstrous parts of the body. Many say that a single look on him would make any man insane.

In game, his statue appears in the secret worship area in the Marsh Refinery. Looking at the statue for too long causes Jack Walters sanity loss.
