The H.P. Lovecraft Wiki

🔀 This article is about the species. For the Elder God see Zhar and Lloigor.

This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. In the works of Colin Wilson, the Lloigor are vortices of living power completely invisible except on occasions when they appear reptilian. They came from Andromeda, first settling in Lemuria and Mu. They used humans as slaves (see the Kthatans), have the power to transform people physically and can adopt corporal bodies if they wish. They are sometimes called “the invisible ones from the stars” and may be the same as the flying polyps. They were ruled by Ghatanothoa possibly through mating with god Lloigor.

Behind the Mythos

It seems that Wilson named the species after the Elder God created by Derleth.
