Vorvadoss (The Flaming One, Lord of the Universal Spaces, The Troubler of the Sands, Who Waiteth in the Outer Dark) is an Elder God that appears as a cloaked, hooded being, enveloped in green flames, with fiery eyes. He is reported in some sources as son of the Elder God Nodens and the Great Old One Lythalia and has a twin brother, Yaggdytha.


Vorvadoss was created by Henry Kuttner. He first appeared in Kuttner's "The Eater of Souls" and is also invoked in Kuttner's "The Invaders", in which his huge face with flaming eyes manifests at the climax of the story.

He was mentioned as an Elder God by Lin Carter in his The Necronomicon: The Dee Translation along with Nodens and Kthanid.
