I have a question to H.P. Lovecraft fans - who is the Star Spawn and why he looks like mini-Cthulhu? According to AH wiki he is appeared in Lovecraft's "Call of Cthulhu", but i am always think its was Cthulhu themself in the book.

Read At the Mountains of Madness. They battled the Elder Things. He lays out the history pretty well.

Stunned amazement will probably be your habitual state of mind.

Star Spawn are a species, not an individual.

Presumably they are other members of Cthulhu's species, or are his offspring.

Star Spawn are essentially an alien race that look like smaller versions of Cthulhu and apparently worship him.

They are mentioned in "At the Mountains of Madness" as the Elder Things waged a war with them then eventually settled a peace treaty that left parts of Earth to the two races.
