Demi-God 3 The Great Cthulhu Picture

"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" - "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."
This one's a favorite of course, lol. Good ole Cthulhu!!

Cthulhu is from the works of H.P. Lovecraft and is an evil Priest of the Idiot God Azathoth and rival to the Evil God Hastur. Sealed beneath the sea in the city of R'lyeh for unknown reasons this cosmic beast is very famous and quite popular.

Cthulhu is the youngest of the Chaos Demi-Gods and is one of the few whom has existed extensively on Earth and on Urth. Cthulhu is a God of The Sea, Chaos, Wrath, Hate, Evil, Water, Whirlpools, sleep, dreaming and of course Madness.

Long ago, Cthulhu traveled as the messenger of Chaos to Earth and to Urth, in the separate dimensions to gather followers and slaves of the Chaos to gain more power from himself. During his travels, he corrupted and nearly destroyed the City of R'lyeh, that sat atop the Legendary dragon Atlantis.

Cthulhu fought against the Nightmare known as Yami and in the end Cthulhu was wounded and woke the dragon of Atlantis Which dove under water and killed most of the inhabitants of the city.

Yami sealed Cthulhu within the city and to avoid wasting his powers for years or possibly dying from the arcane seals, he placed himself in a state of hibernation for several thousand years, dreaming and sending his thoughts into those tainted by chaos and the unlucky dreamers who's unconscious minds brushed against his. They would work through the years to find a way to break his seal and free him on the world again.

His half Brother Hastur the Unspeakable is his biggest rival and it is believed that Hastur had tipped off Yami as to where Cthulhu was and was the one who inevitably got him locked into the city.

Cthulhu is known throughout time as Cthulhu, Hulu, Thulu, Huixtocihuatl, Repun Kamui, Gong Gong, Lir, Nu, Hapy, Aegaein, Dakuwaqa, Proteus, Kamohalii, Nyami Nyami, and even Davy Jones in many religions and cultures.

Cthulhu is one of the "Heaven Bound" in the Demi Gods. And controls aquatic creatures such as Deep Ones.

Cthulhu has always been one of my favorites so it was fun designing him and incorporating him into my story here. He isn't a main character or anything but he does show up as a villain from time to time. And This isn't the only story he'll be mentioned in of course, lol. I went with the normal design for him (Big, Green, Tentacles, wings) and decided on some other things myself such as making his wings look all tentacly and wiggly as well as any spikes and what not usually looking like tentacles. In addition I gave his facial tentacles the ends of a Colossal Squid's tentacles giving them thorny spikes.

Heh, Well, Enjoy another of the evil Demi Gods of Chaos and expect more soooon. Next up is Odin, and then... Pazuzu I think.. lol.
