Dagon (Cthulhu Mythos)

Dagon is a fictional character from the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft's short stories.

"Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds.... Once I sought out a celebrated ethnologist, and amused him with peculiar questions regarding the ancient Philistine legend of Dagon, the Fish-God; but soon perceiving that he was hopelessly conventional, I did not press my inquiries" -- H.P. Lovecraft, Dagon
