Background/History: The twin brother to Wilbur Whateley, the Dunwich Horror “looked more like the father than [Wilbur] did.” Growing at the same rapid pace as Wilbur, the Horror was fed on cows flesh and blood for the first 15 years of its life. After Wilbur died in 1928, the Horror burst out of the farmhouse where it was being housed, and then lurked about Dunwich for a time, killing people and livestock, before being destroyed itself by a trio of men from Miskatonic University.
Personality/Motivation: Far more alien than Wilbur, the Dunwich Horror only cares about pleasing its father. Thus, it treats the people of Dunwich as little more than cattle, destroying two farmhouses and devouring everyone within in order to sate its hunger. It also wishes to bring its father to Earth, so the world can be cleansed and he (and his father) can assume mastery of the remains.

Powers/Tactics: The Horror’s primary power is its immense size, coupled with its inability to be seen due to its extra-dimensional make up. It simply batters things down, such as trees, fences, and buildings, and either crushes what’s left under its bulk, or snatches up anything living with its tentacles and either drinks their blood or devours them whole (or both). Intelligent and capable of speech, the Horror can cast spells, probably the same sort of summoning spells Wilbur knows, but the Horror’s spell-casting skills is somewhat greater.
Appearance: “Bigger'n a barn... all made o' squirmin' ropes... hull thing sort o' shaped like a hen's egg bigger'n anything with dozens o' legs like hogs-heads that haff shut up when they step... nothin' solid abaout it -- all like jelly, an' made o' sep'rit wrigglin' ropes pushed clost together... great bulgin' eyes all over it... ten or twenty maouths or trunks a-stickin' aout all along the sides, big as stove-pipes an all a-tossin' an openin' an' shuttin'... all grey, with kinder blue or purple rings... an' Gawd in Heaven -- that haff face on top... that face with the red eyes an' crinkly albino hair, an' no chin, like the Whateleys.... It was a octopus, centipede, spider kind o' thing, but they was a haff-shaped man's face on top of it, an' it looked like Wizard Whateley's, only it was yards an' yards acrost....”
Designer’s Notes: The Dunwich Horror is from the HP Lovecraft story of the same name. As with my character sheet for Wilbur Whateley, I’ve built this based strictly on things mentioned and described in the story. Thus, you have room to expand on the Horror’s capabilities, mainly in its use of magic and spells. See Wilbur Whateley for more information.
