* In some CthulhuMythos fiction, the Veiled King (who was only briefly mentioned in Creator/HPLovecraft's own ''Literature/TheDreamQuestOfUnknownKadath'') has the following backstory: the proper king was decadent and had shown disrespect to gods and went to openly mock them. He returned, wearing veil forever. In reality he has been replaced by a race of beings, who enforced harsh but reasonably fair laws. The exiles from the society are secretly captured and used for their breeding program (which, Cthulhu Mythos being what it is, involves mosquito men and semi-sentient grubs).
