The Cthulhi (also known as the "star-spawn of Cthulhu") are a race discovered by H. P. Lovecraft. They have a physical similarity with the Great Old One Cthulhu, but are of far smaller size. In similar fashion to the Judeo-Christian God being a giant of human form, Cthulhu is a giant cthulhi. Relatively little is known about the Cthulhi other than that they arrived on Earth with Cthulhu, and are his underlings. In At the Mountains of Madness, murals and sculptures preserved beneath Antarctic alien ruins record of a war they waged against the Elder Things after arriving on Earth. After the task was completed, they and their god retreated to R'lyeh where the rise of the ocean trapped them in a sunken tomb. A few are rumored to have escaped this incident, and can be found in hidden places on Earth.
