Castro is a fictional character created by H. P. Lovecraft, who makes his first appearance in the 1928 short story "The Call of Cthulhu".


He is an "immensely aged mestizo [...] who claimed to have sailed to strange ports and talked with undying leaders of the Cthulhu Cult in the mountains of China." Castro was arrested on November 1, 1907 during a New Orleans police raid on a cult ceremony in Louisiana.
