Zushakon, The Dark Silent One, appears as a swirling, black vortex, revered by the Mutsune Native Americans as a dire death god. He is also worshipped by the mysterious servitors known as the Hidden Ones. It is a descendent of Ubbo-Sathla. Logic suggests that Zushakon is the "father" of Cyäegha. The name is also given as Zul-Che-Quon (by West Coast Indian tribes)  and Zushakon (in Mu and Xinian).

"Zushakon" is an alternative spelling of Zulchequon used by the Elder Hierophant Yogmosh-Voth in Mu and it is also used in the Book of Iod. A variation of this name, Zyshakon, was used by some of the American Indians.

Behind the MythosEdit

The original name variant Zushakon was invented by Henry Kuttner in "The Bells Of Horror"; Lin Carter used this name and other variant in his fiction.

Zulchequon was created by Henry Kuttner and expanded upon by Lin Carter.
