We have waited four long years for this handsome boy. After three other litters of not producing a silver boy, I told Maeve ok whatever produce a boy for me as long as it's not brown I don't care and by some sheer luck, she produced not one but TWO for me to choose from. 

You can read about his outcross story
here 

Twisted Helix continues to follow this lines' Genstealer Cult from Warhammer and outcross program theme. Originally Cthulhu's name was going to be Noan which is a third-generation genestealer. It seemed fitting. as he is a third-generation outcross, but his litter theme, I wanted to be epic since it was his parents' last litter together so we went with Epic Sea Creatures. We likes Cthulhu so much we kept it!
