'Umr at-Tawil

A being who lives in the First Gateway, at the extension of earth which is outside time, and serves as a Guide to the next, or Ultimate Gate [HPL Gates 430, 435]. It is heavily cloaked, apparently shaped something like a man, but changeable in shape and half again as large; it moves by gliding or floating [432]. The Necronomicon and the Book of Thoth warn of this being, who guides the rash beyond all the worlds into the Abyss of unnameable Devourers. He is known as 'Umr at-Tawil, the Most Ancient One, which the scribe rendereth THE PROLONGED OF LIFE [430-432]. The Necronomicon teaches the obeisances which it is proper to render to 'Umr at-Tawil [432]. He has been feared by the whole world since Lomar rose out of the sea and the Winged Ones came to earth to teach the Elder Lore to man [432]. He knows all things, and He seemed to Randolph Carter to be surprisingly free of the malignity ascribed by Alhazred [432-433]. 'Umr at-Tawil brandished a large sphere of iridescent metal and lead the Ancient Ones in a chanting ritual so that their dreams might open the Ultimate Gate for Carter [434-436, 441]. 'Umr at-Tawil's magic temporarily hid the revelation of transdimensional selves from Carter while the latter was in the First Gate, so that Carter would be able to use the Silver Key with precision to open the Ultimate Gate [443].
