B'Moth, The Master, is a god of the seas with a world-wide but little-known following. Probably an abbreviation of Beh'-Moth (known as Beh'-Moth the Devourer in the book Monstres & Their Kynde), thence Behemoth, the giant sea monster mention in The Bible. B'Moth wishes to send a horde of fierce animals to crush civilization and blot it out.
Behind the Mythos[edit | edit source]
B'Moth was created by Bertram Russell during Lovecraft's lifetime, in "The Scourge of B'Moth" - it has been remarked that the story is practically a re-write of "The Call of Cthulhu"; Henry Hasse listed the creature among Mythos entries in a book quote in "The Guardian of the Book".
