Trivia Edit

  • Howard is a confirmed reference to Cthulhu, a fictional being from the works of Howard P. Lovecraft.[1]
    • This is indicated by the squidlike features he gains at Rank 2, as well as his original name, Cathulhu, before it was changed in an update.
    • His current name is the same as the author's, and he has the skill "Crafty", as in Love"craft".
    • His line, "Always fear the unknown," looks like a reference to a quote by Lovecraft: "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
    • Howard's line, "Hastur cf'tagn", is in the R'lyehian (AKA Cthuvian) language that Lovecraft created, and is a direct quote from The Return of Hastur by August Derleth, a friend of Lovecraft.
  • It is theorized by some players that Howard might be Francis' father, due to their almost identical body shapes and connections to mystical power.
  • Howard is a fan-inspired cat, suggested by wilcox1232 on the Castle Cats subreddit.[1]
