The H.P. Lovecraft Wiki

This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. Thomas Lee is a character created by British horror author Ramsey Campbell for his short story "The Inhabitant of the Lake".


Born some time before 1865, as an adult Thomas Lee became a servant of the Great Old One Glaaki, and the leader of his cult. In this capacity Lee commissioned a row of houses, later known as Lakeside Terrace, in a remote part of the Severn Valley next to the body of water in which his master dwells.

Having succumbed to the Green Decay, Lee is no longer able to tolerate the touch of sunlight, and now appears to spend his days inside one of the many stone sarcophagi which dot the landscape surrounding Lakeside Terrace.
