Deranged human cults worship you, but you don’t even care about them — you are just amused by their silly antics. You are simply waiting to wreak havoc upon humanity in the next favourable cosmic cycle. This is why we sing guttural songs in your name, and also why you get all of the above except you become a WITCH OR WIZARD IN SALEM-VILLAGE. You will become part of the dreadful history of this town haunted by hideous forces of evil as your photo, stylised by our artist, is included in the town records.
