Iod, “The Hunter of Souls”, is a Great Old One worshipped on the planet Bel Yarnak and beyond the farthest galaxies (where he is “The Source”), and is known in Atlantis and Mu (as “The Shining Hunter”) who worshipped him as a “god of earth” along with Vorvadoss and Cthulhu. A strange crystalline fungus thing. He is remembered dimly as “the Shining Pursuer, who hunted souls through the Secret Worlds”. Most data on him is contained in the Book of Iod.
