"That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die."




Abdul Alhazred, also known as "Mad Arab", is the autor of the book Kitab al-Azif, but you maybe know it by the name of Necronomicon.

The scars on his body are Elder Signs, symbols that can protect against evil forces.




Biography

According to Wikipedia Lovecraft's "History of the Necronomicon", Alhazred was: a mad poet of Sana'a. He visited the ruins of Babylon and the subterranean secret of Memphis and spent ten years alone in the great southern desert of Arabia, which is held to be inhabited by protective evil spirits and monsters of death. Of this desert many strange and unbelievable marvels are told by those who pretend to have penetrated it. In his last years Alhazred dwelt in Damascus.

In 730, while still living in Damascus, Alhazred supposedly wrote a book of ultimate evil in Arabic, al-Azif, which would later become known as the Necronomicon. Those who have dealings with this book usually come to an unpleasant end, and Alhazred was no exception.
Of his final death or disappearance (738 A.D.) many terrible and conflicting things are told. He is said by Ebn Khallikan to have been seized by an invisible monster in broad daylight and devoured horribly before a large number of fright-frozen witnesses. Of his madness many things are told. He claimed to have seen the fabulous Irem, or City of Pillars, and to have found beneath the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind. He was only an indifferent Moslem, worshipping unknown entities whom he called Yog-Sothoth and Cthulhu.
