#46 - Spectral Hunters & Flying Polyps

Spectral Hunters

Spectral Hunters are rubbery-skinned humanoids with shark-like mouths and crab-like claws. They are typically guardians of a location or object, and can become invisible at will.

#45 - Byakhee & Beings from Xiclotl

Byakhee

Described as "not altogether crows, nor moles, nor buzzards, nor ants, nor vampire bats, nor decomposed human beings," I've yet to actually see a Byakhee portrayed with all of those features. Because they were also said to be "tame, trained," they are generally treated as the mounts of the Mythos.

#44 - Deep Ones & Sons of Yog-Sothoth

Deep Ones

Deep Ones are humanoid fish-frogs that live in cities under the sea—though they can also survive just fine on land. They also live forever unless killed.

The Denizens of Yaddith are a race of brilliant scientists and powerful wizards whose planet was destroyed by Dholes. Having developed teleporting time-machines known as "light-wave envelopes", some denizens were able to escape Yaddith's destruction and can now be found in various places and times, including Earth and the Dreamlands.

#41 - Ghouls & Servants of Gloon

Ghouls

Ghouls are feral, "vaguely canine" humanoids that dwell in tunnel systems beneath many cities, often centered on graveyards and ancient catacombs, where they feast on the dead. Some of these tunnels even lead to the Dreamlands, in which Ghouls are regular denizens.

#40 - Guardians of Crystallizers of Dreams & Lords of Tindalos

Guardians of Crystallizers of Dreams

The Guardians of Crystallizers of Dreams—hereafter simply called Guardians—are dark, ghostly, floating, jellyfish-like creatures with glowing, yellow, cat-like eyes from a dimension between reality and sleep. As their name suggests, they guard the Crystallizers of Dreams from being used, which are yellow egg-shaped objects about a foot in diameter that have the ability to transport the consciousness of a sleeping person to far-off locations or dimensions.
