Elder Evils

Sometimes held to be synonymous with the Great Old Ones and Outer Gods, these beings are respected and paid homage to by the Aboleth race and some similar beings. They are supposedly older than the deities and are generally uncaring beings who rarely even interact with the Material Plane. There are exceptions, including five who are the most admired by the Aboleth: Bolothamogg, Holashner, Piscaethces (the progenitor of the Aboleths), Shothotugg and Y’chak. These are sometimes identified with specific Great Old Ones and Outer Gods or sometimes other entities, Bolothamogg with Yog-Sothoth, Holashner with Shudde M’ell or Ugudenk, Piscaethces with Shub-Niggurath, though she is also sometimes considered a Star-Spawn of Cthulhu, Y’chak with Nyarlathotep or Hastur.
