About him Edit
Dagon is a deity who presides over the Deep Ones, an amphibious humanoid race indigenous to Earth's oceans. Also known as Father Dagon, he is a Great Old One and the consort of Mother Hydra.
Dagon is an enormous specimen of Deep One who has been mentioned in texts since ancient times. He is worshiped by a devout cult of humans and Deep Ones, who revere him as their deity. While apparently immortal, his longevity may be attributable to his fraternization with the Star Spawn, who sometimes select formidable specimens from a given species to protect, nurture, and empower for reasons known only to them.
At very advanced, some Deep Ones reach enormous sizes. There is fossil evidence that the oldest, largest of these beings reached sizes of over 50 feet in height.
It may also be that there has been more than one gigantic specimen of Deep Ones who have been confused with the original Dagon. All Deep Ones continue to grow slowly after they reach maturity, provided that they are within reach of steady diet. Indeed, there are ancient Dagon carvings that display what appear to be several gigantic Deep Ones wrestling with whales.
