The Yithians are pretty much the only benevolent creatures in the Lovecraft creature mythos. They are archivists, seeking knowledge just for the sake of learning. They are my favorite Lovecraft creature and if I could choose to be any Lovecraft creature it would be a member of this race.

No wonder Prof.Peaslee, once a victim of their mind-swapping future history research, woke up screaming after seeing his new form in a flashback dream.

I always liked these guys--like me, they were seekers of Knowledge!

Yes, BUT they knew their own future history, and were prepared against that day when they'd have to leap forward in time to new ,beetle bodies, and leave behind all their books (only minds could make the time-jump),computers,etc.

And I imagine not everybody was chosen to jump into the future. Schlubbs and the helpless bodies now inhabited by beetle minds (the Yith people can be classed as neutral. They don't care what lives they ruin in their mind-swapping et al) were left to the wrath of the Blind Ones .

Not all species are altruistic...and when it comes down to survival, are we any better?

I love the coloring, and the eyes look especially eerie as they stand out.
