Lesser Subdimensional Entities

True Name:
Not applicable.

Similar in range to non-Ascendant humans, with infrequent aberrant variations that range in height from one half to three meters.

The Whitford Folio.

‘Pickman’s Model’, H. P. Lovecraft, 1926:

“These figures were seldom completely human, but often approached humanity in varying degree. Most of the bodies, while roughly bipedal, had a forward slumping, and a vaguely canine cast. The texture of the majority was a kind of unpleasant rubberiness.”

“It was a colossal and nameless blasphemy with glaring red eyes, and it held in bony claws a thing that had been a man, gnawing at the head as a child nibbles at a stick of candy. Its position was a kind of crouch, and as one looked one felt that at any moment it might drop its present prey and seek a juicier morsel. But damn it all, it wasn’t even the fiendish subject that made it such an immortal fountain-head of all panic—not that, nor the dog face with its pointed ears, bloodshot eyes, flat nose, and drooling lips. It wasn’t the scaly claws nor the mould-caked body nor the half-hooved feet—none of these, though any one of them might well have driven an excitable man to madness.”

The following is a Shoreham children’s rhyme about a local man who was the victim of a failed Ascendancy known as 'Uncle Jeb':

There once was a man from New England
He had a penchant for drinking
One night while screwed
He totally spewed
And out came a demon from Uumundun.

While there exists wide variation in individual form, the image represents a fairly standard interpretation of a ghul.
