„ The guard“ or also „The gate“, belongs to the external gods. He is described as an irregular aggregation by of different colour fluorescent balls whose sight releases dark associations. Nevertheless, he can accept different firm, liquid or gaseous figures. He also acts about Avatare like the horror of the door (English The Lurker at the Threshold), a sombre, amorphous fright, or Ramasekva, a much-armed, human figure.
He is also known as the "key to the gate where the spheres meet" and is also described as a key and at the same time guard of the ways and gates, as a being which unites at the same time past, present and future in itself. Yog-Sothoth seems to exist in dimensions and spheres which exceed the human imagination and there are also theories which say that he himself is a prisoner where all time and every space meet. He should be the father of Cthulhu and Hastur and have testified with Shub-Niggurath Nug and Yeb.
As a God Yog-Sothoth finds out only relatively low admiration, mostly from magicians, to him sacrifice around in the exchange power to receive about space and time and can be brought on with the help of ancient, black-magic formulae.
