Azathoth

The Blind Idiot God, Master of all Creation and Destruction.

Summary

Azathoth is the supreme being of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Often referred to as the "Blind Idiot God" or "Daemon Sultan", it rests in the center of existence, eternally slumbering as a band of countless Outer Gods play horrid, chaotic music and dance around it. This music is performed in hopes of keeping Azathoth asleep, for all existence is no more than the formless monster's dream. Were it ever to awaken, there would be worlds nor gods, no more, and all would once again be Azathoth.

Powers and Stats

Tier: 0

Name: Unknown (Its true name is unfathomable by mortals). Referred to as Azathoth

Origin: Cthulhu Mythos

Gender: Inapplicable

Age: Precedes all of existence

Classification: Unknown

Powers and Abilities: Questionable Omnipotence, Omnipresence, Omniscience

Attack Potency: True Infinity (All of existence is part of its dream, and will be destroyed when it truly awakens. This existence includes beings such as Yog-Sothoth, who embody all that is and isn't, also containing an infinite number of dimensionless, limitless beings who can control anything below them as they see fit. Even the lowest of these gods sees infinitely layered worlds with infinite possibilities and impossibilities as nothing more than a game without any rules.)

Speed: Omnipresent

Lifting Strength: Irrelevant

Striking Strength: True Infinity

Durability: True Infinity (Azathoth cannot be destroyed, as the concept of destruction, just like all others, exists only in its unfathomable mind)

Stamina: Irrelevant

Range: True Infinity

Standard Equipment: Unknown

Intelligence: Absolutely Mindless when asleep (It is "The Blind Idiot God"), Likely omniscient when awake (Beings such as Yog-Sothoth, who are truly omniscient, are just a part of Azathoth's mind.)

Weaknesses: Azathoth is unconscious (While this does not negatively affect it, it means the being does not make conscious decisions)

Note: Proof that all of creation is Azathoth's dream:

Out in the mindless void the daemon bore me,

Past the bright clusters of dimensioned space,

Till neither time nor matter stretched before me,

But only Chaos, without form or place.

Here the vast Lord of All in darkness muttered

Things he had dreamed but could not understand, While near him shapeless bat-things flopped and fluttered

In idiot vortices that ray-streams fanned.

They danced insanely to the high, thin whining

Of a cracked flute clutched in a monstrous paw,

Whence flow the aimless waves whose chance combining

Gives each frail cosmos its eternal law. “I am His Messenger,” the daemon said,

As in contempt he struck his Master’s head.

~ XXII. Azathoth

Others

Every God in Mythos is descended from him, including Yog-Sothoth, meaning he precedes the concept of existence itself.

    • I also always equate Azathoth to being the equivalent of a furtive void/Chaos of Greek Myth. A being of complete non-existence and nothingness...
