An elder being who has been spotted all over the universe, he usually ends up being feared. But on Praxis his reputation is mitigated, in part because of the Shoggo. These alien beings count him as the creator of their race and a rare few may call him Grandpa.
He has some unusual skills, including having the capability to create world eggs and new life-forms. Though he won't admit it, his emotional attachment to the Shoggo and by extension to Praxis has mellowed his outlook somewhat.
Apparently, parts of his body can cause insanity when viewed by mortals, so when he speaks to one who isn't Shoggo he tends to cloak himself in smoke.
