"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

This article is written on a topic within the Greater Cthulhu Mythos based on information from works in the Mythos. By default, all information is to be assumed to derive from the Lovecraft Myth Cycle unless otherwise marked.

This category contains all creatures, (sentient, non-sentient, native, extra-terrestrial, etc.) that have been classified or described as a large population of similar creatures. This is to say that they share a single, unique, evolving gene pool.

This therefore excludes the following:

  • Mutants, which are genetic or unnatural aberrations of a member or small number of a species
  • Biological experiments, which are intentional modifications of a member of a species by a willful agent
  • Hybrids, which derive their genes from two separate gene pools of two different species

These species have been described using the archaic term "race", but are better described with a contemporary term based in biology and genetics.
