Northam, Lord

   In “The Descendant,” an eccentric, aged scholar, of a family whose ancestral line reaches back to Roman Britain, who, as a younger man, had explored both formal religions and occult sciences (much like Randolph Carter in “The Silver Key”). When Williams, a young friend, brings him a copy of the Necronomicon, Northam first reacts with horror and then tells a tale of horrors in Roman Britain.
