Octobernomicon, Oct 11: Great Uk’tena

Great Uk’tena, Avatar of Dagon

The Great Uk’tena is the god of the fresh-water deep-ones, and a manifestation of Father Dagon. It is sometimes referred to as the Keen-Eyed, for it is said it knows all secrets of waters and forests. It dwells in deep pools, murky lakes, and fast-moving rivers. Its body is something like that of an enormous eel, slick and slimy, glowing a fiery red. Its head is something of a cross between something ichthyian and something feline. Atop its head is a wickedly pointed ivory horn.
Cult: Aside from the fresh-water deep ones, Great Uk’tena has no cult. The Cherokee knew of it, and spoke of it in some tales. A few insane and brave individuals have sought it out, in order to gain unfathomable knowledge.
