A cult initiate is often impressionable and unstable—a person marred by the cruelties of life, their interests and ambitions turned to destructive ends as a means of striking back at a world that has done nothing but beat them down. The outer god Azathoth prizes such individuals, turning their instincts to murderous ends in pursuit of boundless chaos.
