Hunting Horror image.jpg

Hunting Horrors are creatures which appear in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.


Gigantic creatures resembling great annelids or serpents, the Hunting Horrors also have a huge pair of bat-or dragon-like wings of a rubbery texture, strangely distorted heads, and twisted appendages which end in wicked talons. It is said that their physical forms continually shift and change, making it difficult to focus on the creature as a whole. Serving Nyarlathotep in the role of attack dogs, the Horrors have a deep aversion to light in all its forms; indeed, it is possible to reduce one to ash with a strong enough burst of light.
