A New England dreamer
of the famous Carter
family, who used to travel in the Dreamlands
- his biggest adventure was the dream-quest for the unknown Kadath
, documented in a H.P. Lovecraft
mini-novel of the same name. Since that, he lost his ability to enter Dreamlands
but recovered it after he found the Silver Key
and disappeared from the waking world
. He returned to the Dreamlands
and reigns there as king of Iled-Vak
... I guess.
He is also a friend of cats of Ulthar (because he helped them to defeat the evil Zoogs) and the ghouls - mostly because his friend Richard Upton Pickman became one. Of course, helping ghouls to defeat almost-humans and the moonbeasts secured the eternal support of ghouls for Carter. They even agreed to escort him to the unknown Kadath.
