The Shoggoths are eldritch horrors:

History

Carving of the Shoggoths in the Mountains of Madness killing the Old Ones

Origins / Slaves of the Old Ones

The Shoggoths were huge tentacled lumps or blobs, and the slaves of the star-headed Old Ones (who named them).

They presumably helped them built a city in the place known during the Hyborian Age as the Mountains of Madness, in Leng, in the Frozen Land at the extreme south of Earth. The Old Ones seemingly lost of their skill at the time they built a second city nearby.

Eventually, the Shoggoths killed their masters.[1]

Hyborian Age

Death of the Shoggoth of the Mountains of Madness

At least one of the Shoggoths survived into the Mountains of Madness, where it became known as Tekeli-li, the Death that Flows, a death to the humans living there, for it ushered that word relentlesly.

When Conan, Bêlit and the Black Corsairs were in hiding from Ghomli, on the isle with local princess Ta-No, they were captured by Ta-No's tribesmen, who were attacked by Ghomli and his loyalists, until the Shoggoth intruded, attacking the three party. but was neutralized by Conan.[1]

Along with the Exo-Parasites and Viral Parallels, Shoggoths were locals of the Exo-Space, the "scavengers of the Outer Omniverse". They were drawn to dimensional tears to try and cross over to other dimensions, to feast.[2]
