|“||Words could not adequately convey the repulsiveness of the thing. It was endowed with a trunk and great, uneven ears, and two enormous tusks protruded from the corners of its mouth. But it was not an elephant. Indeed, its resemblace to an actual elephant was, at best, sporadic and superficial, despite certain unmistakable points of similarity. The ears were webbed and tentacled, the trunk terminated in a huge flaring disk at least a foot in diameter, and the tusks, which intertwined and interlocked at the base of the statue, were as translucent as rock crystal.||„|

Chaugnar Faugn (Horror from the Hills) is a vampiric elephant-like humanoid horror with a leech-like mouth on the end of his trunk. When he hungers, Chaugnar moves very quickly for its size and uses its trunk to drain the blood from its victims, hence his nickname, The Feeder.
Behind the MythosEdit
George Olshevsky named the nonconvex snub polyhedra after some other Great Old Ones, with the Snub dodecadodecahedron as "Chaugnar faugn".
