"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

This article is written on a topic within the Greater Cthulhu Mythos based on information from works in the Mythos. By default, all information is to be assumed to derive from the Lovecraft Myth Cycle unless otherwise marked.

Cxaxukluth (or Ksaksa-Kluth) is a Outer God and is the "son" of Azathoth by spontaneous fission. His progeny are Hziulquoigmnzhah and Ghisguth. He is the grandfather of Tsathoggua.

Cxaxukluth dwells on Yuggoth. His immediate family lived with him for awhile, but soon left because of his cannibalistic appetites.

The creature was invented, outside of fiction, in the letters by Clark Ashton Smith to Robert Barlow, and published in the article "The Family Tree of the Gods" in The Acolyte fanzine (issue 7, Summer 1944).

There is a theory that Ptmâk and Cxaxukluth the Hyperborean names for Nug and Yeb. Cxaxukluth is probably Yeb. "The Second Epistle of Eibon unto his Disciples, or The Apocalypse of Eibon"[1] has "Cxaxukluth divided itself into its maleness and its femaleness, and the male was called Nug, the female being called Yeb" and then they produced their various offspring together. This text also refers to Cxaxukluth as the "Illimitable Androgynous Desire" prior to the split.
