The H.P. Lovecraft Wiki

This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. Abholos (aka Devourer in the Mist) is a great grey, festering glob of endless malevolence.

According to one account he is a product of Ghisguth and Zstylzhemghi mating , which gave birth to Tsathoggua. This made Abholos more of a self-willed placenta that had taken form in-and-of-itself, rather than a brother or cousin of the others.

According to another account, Abholos is a spawn of Cthulhu, born from his bile and tears.
