Robert Olmstead is the narrator of "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" and a member of the Marsh Family. It is remarked that his eyes have the same, strange quality seen in descendants of Obed Marsh. In the story's final pages he learns he himself is the great-great-grandson of Obed Marsh and a Deep One and in time will become one of the amphibious monsters he witnessed in Innsmouth.

Behind the MythosEdit

His name is never given within the story, but Lovecraft did give it in HPL: "Notes for The Shadow Over Innsmouth".
