Hounds of Tindalos

Beings from before life began, who exist in angular time and normally cannot enter curved time, where we reside. Halpin Chalmers saw them in a vision while under the influence of the Liao drug. [FBL Hounds 80]

Their existence is the result of an un unspeakable deed that was done in the beginning. They are symbolized in the myth of the Fall: the tree, the snake, and the apple; as well as in an obscene form that is occasionally found engraved on ancient tablets. [81]

All the evil in the universe is concentrated in them. Yet they are not evil in our sense, for where they dwell there is no thought or moral, no right or wrong. There is only the pure and the foul. They are that which fell away from cleanliness at the beginning of time. They hunger for that part of humans that is pure, that is descended from a curve that emerged from the primal deed without stain. [82-83]

They have no bodies, or possibly they have lean, hungry bodies. They are lean, hungry and athirst. They scented Chalmers in time. Chalmers heard their breathing [82]. When he saw them coming towards him, Chalmers began writhing about on the floor of his apartment and barking like a dog. [80-83].

Chalmers called these beings the Hounds of Tindalos, but didn't explain the origin of the name [82-83]. A pungeant, nauseating odor becomes noticeable when they are nearby [80, 85].

They move slowly through outrageous angles. [80] Chalmers said that the Hounds can reach us only through angles, and he tried to remove the angles from his room by using plaster to smooth the corners. [83] Unfortunately an earthquake dislodged the plaster, leaving the angles exposed, and the Hounds were able to enter after all. [85-86]

The Hounds left a bluish slime on Chalmer's body. The scientist James Morton examined the slime and concluded that it was from an unknown form of life that lacks all enzymes, and thus potentially is immortal [85-86].

Thomas Granville saw the Hounds of Tindalos in a painting that came to life at the home of a researcher into consciousness-expanding drugs. To Granville they appeared vaguely wolf-like, with blazing eyes and clashing jaws; but their forms changed rapidly as they moved, as if reshaped from moment to moment by all the evil in the universe. [FBL Gateway 8]

Pseudo-Akeley told Albert Wilmarth the essence, though not the source, of the Hounds of Tindalos [HPL Whisperer 256].

A little man said the Book reveals the ultimate source of the Hounds of Tindalos, "who live in a chaotic, nebular universe at the very rim of space, and who are in league with those Outer Ones" [HH Guardian 299].

Winfield Phillips read about the Hounds of Tindalos in manuscripts that Seneca Lapham had borrowed or photocopied from Miskatonic Library [AWD Lurker 135].

Human race

Different and rather inconsistent traditions touch on the origin of the human race.

According to the analysis by Dyer and Danforth of murals found in the Antarctic, the crinoid Old Ones of Antarctica created earth-life for food and other purposes. They allowed various cell-groups to develop into other forms of animal and vegetable life, exterminating any that became troublesome [HPL Mountains 62, 65]. They used a primitive simian ancestor of humanity for food and amusement [65]. The inference seems to be that the simian forebear of humanity was created by the crinoid Old Ones.

The Old Ones of K'n-yan appeared to be human, and might share a common origin with humanity. According to the legends of the Old Ones, Tulu (Cthulhu) brought them to earth from a distant part of space where conditions were much like earth. The Old Ones were the original stock who peopled the earth as soon as its crust was fit to walk on. However, after a massive sinking of continents beneath the ocean, a million or two years ago, the Old Ones withdrew underground and thereafter evolved separately from humanity [Mound 129, 131, 133]. This account differs greatly from the Dyer/Danforth theory, but is not necessarily more reliable, since the Old Ones harbored doubts about the accuracy of their own ancient traditions.

Zadok Allen said that humans are related to the Deep Ones: "Seems that human folks has got a kind o' relation to such water-beasts—that everything alive came aout o' the water onct, an' only needs a little change to go back again" [Innsmouth 331]. Interpreted broadly, this could be merely a restatement of the modern scientific view that the earliest life forms evolved underwater. On the other hand, the implication might be that human beings are descended directly, and relatively recently, from the Deep Ones, and perhaps diverged as a result of adapting to land life. At any rate, it is extraordinarily odd that humans and Deep Ones can mate together and bear offspring, as this is not possible between humans and related species such as apes, for example.

From his research into primal myths, Nathaniel Wingate Peaslee concluded that other intelligent races had inhabited earth before the first amphibian forbear of man crawled out of the sea 300 million years ago [Time 385].

During his sojourn as a captive mind among the Great Race, Peaslee heard hints of the fate of mankind that were too disturbing to put into writing [Time 396].
