Randolph Carter

Depiction of Randolph Carter

Randolph Carter, AKA Howard Phillips Lovecraft, is a human warrior who currently resides in the Demon Realm. Based on the Lovecraftian character, Randolph is actually the avatar of H.P. Lovecraft himself. In the real world, Lovecraft was the paranoid racist human author he was in real life. But whenever he went to sleep, he entered the Demon Realm and lived in the Dreamlands, taking the name of Randolph Carter. He met many friends in real and fantasy life, and when he became 46, Lovecraft decided to kill himself so that he can be reincarnated as a permanent resident in the Dreamlands, by turning his own intestines into a monster, faking intestinal cancer. With that, he was now Randolph Carter permanently. After that, and after the stories he had in real life were expanded upon by others including friends and other authors, they became part of his crew of Outer God hunters. His primary threats were Mischievers, Outer Gods of Chaos that he had always encountered in his dreams when he was still alive, and his true first fight against them was in the events of his story 'The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath', where he explored a portion of the Dreamlands and narrowly escaped the clutches of Nyarlathotep and Azathoth. He also brought his wife Sonia Greene with him and even eventually gained a descendant named Rothrock. He had helped in quelling Azathoth's most recent attack on the Demon Realm with help from the Dreamworlds' planet's native race, the Mi-Go, who had used Iagh-metal, redubbed 'Lovecraftium', to drive off the Mischievers. He even became a UUniversal Crusader and the first and only one to explore outside the ends of universes, in the domain of Outer Gods, and the first modern 0-Brave before Star Butterfly and Luz Noceda. As Randolph, Lovecraft is no longer racist or paranoid, but very wise, noble, proud, and clever, especially since he wears Lovecraftium armor and wields an enchanted Locecraftium sword. He even owns a Schrödinger named Saturn who used to be his real life cat whose name was racially insensitive, but reincarnated into a Cat from Saturn after it's 1904 death (No anti-catism violation intended.)

History

Crew

Lovecraft's fellow writers from the real world are all part of his crew of Outer God Hunters. They each visited the Dreamlands of Yuggoth, the home planet of the Boiling Isles, whenever they sleep, and when they die in a relatively-subtle-and-gruesome way, they become a permanent resident of that world. Each member died periodically of their IRL causes but in the lore of the Owl House, their deaths were actually subtly caused by magic.

  • Sonia Greene- (1883-1972) Lovecraft's wife IRL and the co-captain of Lovecraft's crew and his wife since he never got to legally divorce her in real life. She died of syphilis from her father, and thus this made her a spotted bumpy female demon that is still nonetheless beautiful.
  • Saturn- A Schrodinger cat and the titular Cat from Saturn whose entire race lives in the city of Ulthar, and is a reincarnation of Lovecraft's real-life cat, whose real life name had to be changed because of being racially insensitive.
  • Florence Carol Greene- (1903-1979) AKA Carol Weld, she was a journalist and the stepdaughter of Lovecraft who is now a warrior for his crew. When she died in Miami, she was reincarnated as the same kind of demon as her mother, but share similarities to Lovecraft.
  • Greene Lovecraft- The child of Sonia and her first husband Samuel Greene before Lovecraft who died at the age of three months, and has been reincarnated as a powerful demon who grew up as a grand addition to Lovecraft's crew.

  • Providence Lovecraft- (Deceased) The unknown illegitimate son of Howard and Sonia who became another legend of his own right in the Demon Realm before joining his father's crew, and then being killed by Nyarlathotep, but not after leaving a lineage that'll eventually birth Rothrock Lovecraft.

He and Lovecraft corresponded voluminously from 1930 to his suicide in 1936, and became Lovecraft's fourth-mate and battlemage to cover for his cowardly act of suicide, as his suicide made him a traditional and ugly demon because of the views of suicide being a sin.
