Plastic Wax Factory Vol 05 72 - HOUNDS OF TlNDALOS

HOUNDS OF TlNDALOS. Creature which comes from the distant past, or possibly another dimension. They dwell in Tindalos, a city of corkscrew towers, but have been known to travel to other places and times to track their prey. The Hounds of Tindalos are the embodiment of foulness, and they lust after something found in humans. Long ago, an event took place in which the Hounds of Tindalos and humanity both took part and upon which the tale of the Fall from Paradise is based. The Black Tome of Alsophocus suggests that the cause was both species' attraction to the power of the Shining Trapezohedron. Humanity did not wholly participate, thereby retaining some element of "pureness" which was lost to the Hounds. The Hounds hate all natural life because of this, seeking to destroy any such beings they encounter. Attempts to journey back in time via psychic means attract the Hounds' attention. After an observer has been "scented", the Hounds can follow them through time and space until the person is caught and killed. According to Halpin Chalmers, the noted occultist, these creatures have descended through "angled" time, while normal life has developed through "curves." This is not readily understood, but it is known that a hound must materialize itself through an angle; thus, a person kept in a perfectly round room would be safe from the beast's attack. When this occurs, however, the hounds usually contact some of their metaphysical allies in this time-period, such as the "satyrs" (possibly Shub-Niggurath's minions) and the dholes, to do away with these defenses in some way and allow them access to their prey. They may also send telepathic images of the hunt to these individuals, slowly driving them mad. One sage has hypothesized that the hounds are unable to enter our three dimensions, and anyone who is not traveling through time is safe from their depredations. Cases of hound attack, however, show that this is not the case. It may be that the hounds can only indirectly affect this dimension, which makes them no less of a threat. Analysis of the blue slime left after Hound attacks reveal that the Hounds have no enzymes within their bodies. Enzymes are helpful in that they speed chemical reactions, yet their presence eventually causes a being to die. Not only are the hounds masters of time travel, they seem to be immortal as well; whether or not this means that hounds cannot be permanently destroyed by violence or other means remains to be seen. The hounds are the spawn of Noth-Yidik and K'thun, and may serve Aza-thoth in some capacity. They serve the Lords, mighty exemplars of their species, of whom the most powerful is Mh'ithrha. They may oppose Yog-Sothoth, who represents the curves of time that repel them from our reality. Interaction of hounds with humans is limited — supposed "spells" to contact these creatures are most likely admonitions on how not to contact other realities. Friendly relations are rare between hounds and humans, though Romulus propitiated them while building Rome into an empire. A few hounds, known as ny'rela, serve a particular master, though these are very rare and the means for securing their service is unknown. Some have also connected them with the corpse-cult of Leng, whose symbol is the winged hound.
