Cthulhu MythosEdit

This star system is a location that has something to do with the character Hastur. Although nothing else is known about Aldebaran itself.

In Robert W. Chambers book' The King in Yellow (1895), a collection some of which are horror stories, Hastur is the name of a potentially supernatural character (in "The Demoiselle D'Ys"), a place (in "The Repairer of Reputations"), and mentioned without explanation in "The Yellow Sign". The later two stories also mentioned Carcosa, Hali, Aldebaran, and the Hyades, along with a "Yellow Sign" and a play called The King in Yellow.

H. P. Lovecraft read Chambers' book The King in Yellow in the year 1927. [1] and was so enchanted by it that he added elements of it to his own creations.[2] In Lovecraft's own writings, Hastur is mentioned twice in the tale "The Whisperer in Darkness".
