The Great Race of Yith are beings that, through the use of technology, have cast their minds across the universe and time itself, both to escape the demise of their race, but also to study all the inhabitants of the universe. They are responsible for the compilation of the Pnakotic Manuscripts, which record the lives of countless beings across space and time. While these cone-shaped bodies are not their original forms, it is the form in which they inhabited our planet during the Cretaceous period, before being wiped out by the sinister Flying Polyps.
"They seemed to be enormous iridescent cones, about ten feet high and ten feet wide at the base, and made up of some ridgy, scaly, semi-elastic matter. From their apexes projected four flexible, cylindrical members, each a foot thick, and of a ridgy substance like that of the cones themselves. These members were sometimes contracted almost to nothing, and sometimes extended to any distance up to about ten feet. Terminating two of them were enormous claws or nippers. At the end of a third were four red, trumpet-like appendages. The fourth terminated in an irregular yellowish globe some two feet in diameter and having three great dark eyes ranged along its central circumference. Surmounting this head were four slender grey stalks bearing flower-like appendages, whilst from its nether side dangled eight greenish antennae or tentacles. The great base of the central cone was fringed with a rubbery, grey substance which moved the whole entity through expansion and contraction."
