31 Nights of Halloween: The Crocodylinae Coven for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition






The Crocodylinae coven was formed by Jerome and Devon Hill in 2003 camping trip in the Everglades. Devon, a wiccan, was asked by her husband, Jerome, to perform a rite for the newlyweds to gain riches and power. However, Devon was using a grimoire she found at a shop called the Bookery while visiting her sister, Agnes, in Akron, OH. The grimoire, penned by Niles Augusta, was a companion piece to his treatise on the Green Deep, an ancient diety that he claimed was nearly 55 million years old. August went on to explain that humans had a racial fear of the Green Deep, meaning essentially a piece of it could be found in every one ever born.
   Devon's ritual roused the ancient reptile god and it anointed both husband and wife over the next 72 hours in foul and brackish rituals of power. The power that Jerome claimed to have wanted.
   The Hills left the Everglades with a plan to find converts and awaken the Green Deep's presence in them. The Green Deep was angry that it had been forgotten and wanted to remind this hairless apes that their only suitable purpose was to serve it before being devoured.
   The coven gains much of its wealth and positioning for recruiting from the self-help books their founders have penned. They have classes to promote their books and gain recruits throughs the U.S. Recruits deemed worth of conversion are brought to the Hill estate, less than an hour from the Serpent Mounds, in Ohio. The final initiation requires a convert to partake in cannibalism, with refusal meaning they become a part of the meal.
   Once a member of the coven, the Green Deep can enter a member's body at will, causing them to transform into a hybrid of a human and a crocodile.
