- This is an article about the Henry Kuttner character. For the Lovecraft one, see Mother Hydra.
The Hydra is a creature that lurks in the deepest parts of the Mesopotamian Sea. It takes the form of a many headed serpent that harbors a bitter hatred for surface dwellers, spitting acid and poisonous venom at unsuspecting travelers.
History goes that The Hydra was once a outer space lord called Szolethir the lying bastard and accuser. He was turned into a serpent and banished to earth by one of the other outer gods for conspiring against his brethren. Trapped beneath the sea he grows in power, plotting to one day leave earth and have his revenge revenge on those who banished him.
