"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.

*This article or section contains information based on sources in the Mythos Adjacent Works, and while share similar themes and features of the Mythos are not based on his work, or generally considered a part of the Mythos proper.

Groth-Golka, (The Demon Bird-God), is a monstrous creature dwelling under Antarctica. It is said to vaguely resemble a pterosaur. It was worshipped in Bal-Sagoth, a remnant colony of Atlantis. It has a "bird avatar" form, one of which was killed during the Dark Ages.

Groth-Golka is the lord of the "Fishers From Outside" (possibly the Shantaks).

NotesEdit

Groth-Golka was created by Robert E. Howard for the non-Myths story "The Gods of Bal-Sagoth". Lin Carter incorporated these gods into the Mythos, but for a time confused Groth-Golka and Gol-goroth. Efforts have been made to untangle the confusion.
