have to actually believe in any of these beings if you don't want to,

AKA WisdomThe spirit universe that, just before being banished from
"heaven", copulated with herself to produce our universe (Aitherium) and
its negative counterpart (AntiLand).
AKA Azathoth, Nosallack, "It", NirvanaAllfather of Nothingness. The
lack of all everything. Manifested as an extremely diffuse region of
near-Slacklessness at the Universe's edge. Originally, all of the Elder Gods
were this single entity, but they lowered their vibrational level and divided
into separate wills in order to achieve Somethingness. Affathaughth is
the opposite of Something, which is personified by Ymir.
AgammotoLesser Elder God.
God of All Bad Guys.
AkishraAstral worms that "ride" human nervous systems and feed off of
BanonoHoary grey Goddess of dashed hopes, shattered expectations, lost
jobs, unscored drugs, etc. The graveyard of Could Have Beens. Wife of Nheeguani.
Mother of Loki.
The Bleeding Head of Arnold Palmer
AKA The Bleeding Head of the World Cup Golfer, The Bleeding Head, The
Head A plaster golf-trophy head of the famous world-cup golfer,
Arnold Palmer, smeared with red paint, which is actually the oldest living thing
in the Universe and a being of immeasurable power (Arnold Palmer himself is
actually only a cheap replica of The Head, crafted by the slack-draining Satan.) Indeed,
the Head must be "launched" with a golf club exactly once every Earth year to
prevent its immense power from rupturing the Universe itself! Currently, the
Head is being utilized by the Xists to combat
the sinister Yists or
Yacatisma (who, strangely enough, are working with the world-cup golfer, Lee
Trevino) in an intergalactic war of epic proportions. In fact, every major
world-cup golfer is working with a different race of aliens involved in this
cosmic battle, whose final outcome is yet to be determined. (Note: the
illustration shown is actually only a picture of a latex model of the
Bleeding Head of Arnold Palmer, since the True Head's psychic aura prevents any
photographs to effectively be taken of it.)
"Bob"Refers specifically to J.R. "Bob" Dobbs,
primary agent of Jehovah-1 on
Earth, although it can also refer to any of JHVH's many Earthly agents
throughout history, including the First "Bob", equivalent to the First Yeti.
Bohandas Rebel God.
Father of Lies. Mystery God. Possibly son of Eris and JHVH-1.
AKA Zthood'aLu, Chronozon, Dagon, Cthuhhv, DreamWarper, The 10-Horned
7-Headed Beast, Guardian of the Threshold of Dreams Elder God.
Water Elemental of the West. His specific minions include Fastitocalosaurus
and the Deep
The Deep Ones of Dagon
AKA Children of OannesMinions of Cthulhu who are
born looking like normal humans, but as
they age, change into hideous octopid creatures. One of these creatures,
Eistaa of the Dagon is the mother of Connie Dobbs, wife of
AKA Advanced Supersonic Nazi Hell Creatures from Beneath the Hollow
Earth Semi-mechanoid, insectoid, serpentine zombies that inhabit
huge networks of caverns below the Earth's surface. Minions of the Elder Gods.
Dobbs, Constance Marsh
AKA Connie Primary Wife of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs.
Daughter of The
Great Eistaa of the Dagon, one of the Deep Ones from
Innsmouth, Massachusetts. Rumors abound that Connie and her mother secretly run
the Dobbs business empire behind the scenes, but to what extent this is true
remains to be determined.
Dobbs, J.R. "Bob"
AKA "Bob", Jahr Dobbs, the SlackMaster
Living Master of Slack, High Epot of the Church of the SubGenius, and the
Luckiest Man Alive. A salesman born in the 1920's in the midwestern United
States to Jane McBride Dobbs and the Mayan Xiucha-Chi-Xan M. Dobbs (although
rumor has it that a Polish-Jewish milkman servant of Jehovah-1 was his
actual father), "Bob" was the oldest of three sons (his younger brothers being
named "Rod" Dobbs and Judas J. "Jim" Dobbs). "Bob" was chosen shortly before
World War II to be Jehovah-1's
primary agent on Earth. Under JHVH's guidance, "Bob" founded The Church of the
SubGenius in 1953 to round-up the disorganized SubGenii on the
planet into a unified body in preparation for the arrival of the Xists in 1998. In
1955, "Bob" married his "Primary Wife", Connie, who later
bore him five sons (Bubba, "Bobby" Jr., Adam Kadmon, Shemp, and Shaun) and a
daughter, Barbie Garbs Dobbs (although "Bob" now as at least one "Secondary
Family" in every state of the union and 2,2952 "Tertiary Families" spread evenly
throughout the world.) Although "Bob" was apparently shot and killed in 1984
(and several times after that), he has escaped from Hell so many times that he
is now banned from Hell, as well as Heaven, due to his lack of baptism, so that
he is now forever among the livng undead.
God. Deity of Sex and Dirt.
Dzugarian Snow-People of TibetDescendants of the original Yeti.
Eehg EehnThe name by which NHGH is identified
in the Negative Timestream from which he comes.
AKA The Northern Fathers, Elohim, Kyclopes, The Space Bankers Superpowerful multidimensional entities which, at their furthest
incursion into matter, manifest as huge clouds of gaseous star-matter. They feed
off of high-energy vibrations emitted by living brains during periods of pain,
tension, fear, expectation, ecstasy, and violent death. They were created from
the pre-slack aethers at the same time as this universe. Originally, they were
all one huge entity composed entirely of Nothing, known as "Affathaughth",
but in order to achieve Somethingness, they lowered their vibrational level and
split into separate wills. Most of the Elder Gods are now "sleeping" in the
dimensionless Cold Wastes of Kadath, a condition they forced upon themselves to
avoid being consumed by their own subconcious thoughts, which possesed
physical form. They can still control affairs on Earth, however, with
their psychic projections, "The Watchers".
The Elder Gods are currently allied with the Negative
Elder Gods. Some Elder Gods, known as the Rebel Gods
escaped this sleep of cleansing and are still at large.
The sleeping elder gods' names are: Yog-Sothoth,

"Pink-boys", "Pinks", "Glorps", "Normals", "Mediocretins", etc. Race of bipeds incapable of original thought created by the Yeti in order to
generate pain and suffering to feed the Elder Gods.
After the fall of the Yeti empire, Mutantis, humans ran amok and populated the
Earth (an event possibly engineered by the Elder Gods from the beginning to
create even more pain and suffering), eventually creating the unconcious
Conspiracy of idiocy which is responsible for the sorry state of affairs on the
planet today. The SubGenii are
the half-breed descendants of the humans and the Yeti. (Occasionally, the term
"human" is used somewhat erroneously to refer to all humanoid inhabitants of the
planet Earth, including the superior SubGenii.)

are related to each other in various incomprehensible ways. Its faces include NHGH, Eehg Eehn, and NarNuGH.

got distorted by his followers into a mammoth multibillion-dollar tool of the
Conspiracy commonly known as Christianity. However, in his second incarnation,
he is a pleasant guy named Steve who is making up for his past wrongs by working
diligently for the SubGenius
Church. Reportedly, he is dangerous when angered.

help stop the Elder Gods
from breaking back into our own dimension and punishing JHVH for his rebellion.
LokiNorse trickster spirit. "Con man of the gods." Son of Nheeguani and
MammonSpirit of the Conspiracy. The SubGenius Devil. The force behind
the glorps, the Mediocretins, the Pinks: what saps them, what drags everything

AKA Men from Planet X, Angelic Host An
alien species from an unknown planet (Planet X), possibly near Proxima Regulus,
who are minions of mainly JHVH-1, but also
Gods. Their bodies are hibernating on their home planet, but they move
through the universe by relocating their senses. On July 5th, 1998
(X-Day), at 7:00 AM, they will arrive on Earth in the Escape Vessels of the Sex
Goddesses to transform the card-carrying SubGenii (those
with official Church of the SubGenius minister cards) into superpowerful OverMen. They
will do this both because JHVH-1 wants them to (see the entry for Jehovah-1) and so
they will receive "payment" from us in the form of a special blend of souls
which they will render up to the Elder Gods. The Xists are also currently
involved in a huge intergalactic war with the Yacatisma and
are utilizing the bizarre Bleeding Head
of Arnold Palmer to combat them.
AKA Yists, Serpent People

death and destruction, just for fun. Offspring of NHGH and Narnini.
Currently headed towards Earth! According to the Vatican Codex the
Yacatisma, in the guise of Serpent People, "tempted and fucked" all the
female Yetis in
"Eden", thereby ruining the "Test Batch" and possibly creating humans by
mistake, although this story is at variance with more recent accounts of Yeti
history. The Yacatisma are also somehow currently allied with the human world-cup
golfer, Lee Trevino, in a huge intergalactic war with the Xists, who are
allied with the bizarre Bleeding Head
of Arnold Palmer.
AKA Gigantanthropus correctus, Sismite, Almas, Dzu-Teh, Dida,

city of Mutantis was destroyed millions of years ago when two Yeti were
copulating too near the Great Crystal that powered their city. SubGenii (or
Yetinsyny) are the half-breed descendants of the Yeti and the humans.

Fire Elemental of the South. During the Time Intersection of 2178 AD, he will
"become" the Oepening between our timestream and the Negative Timestream. "He
will synchronize his geometry with the intersecting angles of time, much as we

Negative Timestream. Apparently involved in the huge intergalactic war involving
the Xists and the Yacatisma.
