This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. Yifne is a green star first mentioned by Ramsey Campbell in his short Cthulhu Mythos story "The Inhabitant of the Lake" in 1964. All that is known of Yifne comes from the occult grimoire The Revelations of Glaaki, which suggests that the Great Old One Glaaki may have passed the star on its travels.

Yifne appears to be one half of a binary star system, it’s partner being the dead star Baalblo. The system includes the planet Tond, home to the humanoid yarkdao.
