Hastur the Unspeakable


Hastur, also known by his epithets The Unspeakable One and The Yellow King, is a deity of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Originally the creation of Ambrose Bierce in his short story, "Haïta the Shepherd", where Hastur was a god of shepherds, Hastur is also the name of a city in Robert W. Chambers' short stories, "The Yellow Sign" and "The Repairer of Reputations", both of which appeared in his short story collection, The King in Yellow. Hastur is later mentioned in Lovecraft's "The Whisperer in Darkness", however it is uncertain as to what he's being referred to as. More recently, Hastur has appeared in August Derleth's additions to the Mythos as a full-fledged Great Old One and half-brother of Cthulhu.
