Baoht Z'uqqa-Mogg image
Baoht Z'uqqa-Mogg, The Bringer of Pestilence, is a creature from the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired Cthulhu Mythos.


Baoht Z'uqqa-Mogg is a Great Old One who once inhabited the now-dead planet of Shaggai. Appearing as an enormous arachnid-being with some similarities to a scorpion, Baoht has huge compound eyes, myriad antennae, ant-like mandibles which drip with a highly toxic saliva, and a pair of expansive, leathery wings. It can often be found surrounded by a swarm of flying insects which have a venomous sting and is worshiped as a god by several cults of ghouls, although it has no human followers.


Originating on the now-dead planet of Shaggai, when the Outer God Ghroth bombarded the planet with it's crimson radiation, Baoht Z'uqqa-Mogg followed those few Shan who managed to escape their dying world, finally reaching Earth in the 17th century where he remains to this day.
