   In “The Hound,” the narrator’s partner in the search for decadent thrills. Like some of HPL’s early characters (e.g., Harley Warren, Herbert West), he is the leader of various occult expeditions or activities, the narrators (typically somewhat autobiographical characters) being passive followers. St. John is killed by the ghoul from whose tomb the two stole an exotic amulet for their charnel museum.
