Chaugnar Faugn

Chaugnar Faugn (sometimes also: Chaugnar Faughn; nicknames: The Elephant God, The Horror from the Hills) is a fictional character, a Great Old One, a godlike being from the pantheon of H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, created by Frank Belknap Long[?].

"Some were the figures of well-known myth gorgons, chimaeras, dragons, cyclops, and all their shuddersome congeners. Others were drawn from darker and more furtively whispered cycles of subterranean legend black, formless Tsathoggua, many-tentacled Cthulhu, proboscidian Chaugnar Faugn, and other rumoured blasphemies from forbidden books like the Necronomicon, the Book of Eibon[?], or the Unaussprechlichen Kulten of von Junzt." -- H.P. Lovecraft, The Horror in the Museum
