Origins and early years
Mortal prominence on Earth
The forefathers of Rammon guarded the Eye of Ibis, along with black-skinned warriors in the Temple of Ibis, and had the ancestor of the Kezanki to guard the Crypt of Shadows of the Kezankian Forest where was hidden the Horn of Azoth (who could be retrieved only using the Eye of Ibis).
Azoth was later worshiped as the Dreaming One, including by Strabo. His monks allegedly fed the poor and buried the dead, in honor of their god, but those bodies were in fact stock-pilled in Azoth's temple for "a thousand thousand years", in order to sustain him with blood. Others feared him as a god of pain and hate whose reign would mark the end of Man as ruler of Earth.
In order to awaken Azoth (for him to struck down the temples of Mitra, Ibis, Ishtar and all other gods, and establish himself as the just and eternal ruler of all humans, and his priests elevated as his intermediates), High Priest Karanthes had his daughter Natari, with Strabo, to convince Conan to steal the Eye of Ibis from the Temple of Ibis, then used it in the Crypt of Shadows to recover the Horn of Azoth.
Upon his awakening, Azoth slew Karanthes, the priests, and tried to take grasp of Rammon and Natari, until Conan managed to remove the horn again, killing him and ending the curse. The horn withered in dust.
- In order to use the original plot for they had developed for the movie Conan the Destroyer into Conan: The Horn of Azoth while distancing themselves from it, Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas changed Dagoth by Azoth.
- Azoth was nevertheless once called Dagoth in Conan: The Horn of Azoth, presumably by mistake.
- In the demons' entry of the Marvel Zombies Handbook #1, Azotharoth is stated to appear first in Marvel Graphic Novel #59, where only "Azoth" is featured, making of "Azoth" and "Azotharoth" seemingly the same being.
- The Old One Azotheroth mentioned in The Inner Planes, Marvel Tarot #1, was seemingly an alternate spelling of Azotharoth.
- It is hypothesized that Azoth could be Azathoth, a character created by H.P. Lovecraft.
