Description

Cthulhu is a fictional character that first appeared in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. The character was created by writer H. P. Lovecraft.

HP Lovecraft's initial short story, The Call of Cthulhu established the character as a malevolent entity trapped in an underwater city in the South Pacific called R'lyeh. The character is a central figure in Lovecraft literature, with the short story The Dunwich Horror (1928) mentioning Cthulhu, while The Whisperer in Darkness (1930) hints at the character's origins ("I learned whence Cthulhu first came, and why half the great temporary stars of history had flared forth."). The 1931 novella At the Mountains of Madness refers to the "star-spawn of Cthulhu", who warred with another race called the Old Ones before the dawn of man

cthulhu.org has proposed Cthulhu for US President with the campaign's slogan being Why vote for a lesser evil?.

Fhtagn translates roughly to, "dreams," "sleeps," or "waits." The phrase "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" translates to "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming." It is often shortened to, "Cthulhu fhtagn," which loosely translates to, "Cthulhu waits," or "Cthulhu dreams."
