Abdul Alhazred
from Fancyclopedia 2
(Lovecraft) Arabian necromancer of distinction, author of the Necronomicon. In the Lovecraft Mythos he opened the first gate for the entrance of the Great Old Ones into "our" world, but nonetheless — or perhaps we should say "and therefore" — came to a spectacularly messy end; in the sight of a crowd at his city's gates, he was eaten alive by an invisible monster.
