The Lesser Ower'ra 

The lesser  Ower;ra are pan dimensional cosmic spawn of The Cosmic Titans & Those From Beyond The Outside. They are spawned from the needs & cosmic hellish appetites of their parents. They tear apart the cosmic structure around themselves announcing their birth cries for light years around them.
Many believe that they belong to different order of cosmic life other then the Outer Ones & their spawn. Those who are sentient if such a word can be applied to these things carry with them titles such as Those Which Feast, The Lesser Quar, The Degenerate Spawn of Lor'ra, & Sherrriea, & many, many others. These seek out planets with life for their parents to feast on. Their master/parents reward them with worshipers, blessings of cosmic power, & the table scraps from their feasts if their lucky. 

There are some insane priests who swear that these beings are the final expressions of magic & godhood made manifest. Many of the Ower'ra who fight gods have mocked them with this knowledge. 
Many times the Ower'ra will travel ahead of their parents announcing the 'blessed arrival' of their parents to alien civilizations. Many times they will come in their space craft to simply spread insanity or madness. Some are more merciful & grant a swift death to those their parents feed on.
 The Ower'ra are known to use twisted technologies conjured from the bowels of some other universe of hell & cosmic damnation to create their craft & machinery to help with the feeding of their parents.
 One cult worships them as the avatars of some cosmic punchline. They offer a form of nihilistic salvation  in which the 'blessed' receive a quick destruction at the hands of the Ower'ra. The so called "Cosmic Brotherhood of Oblivion" has over 2 million members & travels with the Ower'ra offering both security & a light snack. 

There are those who say that Azahoth & its spawn allow these monsters to be created so that they will have an endless supply of spawn to absorb & fuel themselves. Some of the lesser Outer Gods hunt the Cosmic titans as well as their children. 
The Ower'ra are often accompanied by a large parade of cosmic parasites that feed on their energies, chaotic energies that induce mutation, insanity, & far worse. Interstellar dragons, asteroid worms,& minor cosmic vortex elementals & the dregs of cosmic divinity serve the Ower'ra hoping to toady to their parents. 

Vulture outfits of mercenaries sometimes move with the spacecraft of the Ower'ra slipping behind after both child & parent have left ruins, cracked planets, & far worse. They collect the profits left behind but they may also become nothing more then a target for adventurers whose desperation makes the vultures targets of opportunity & vengeance. 
The Ower'ra are hunted on all sides by gods, demigods, & heroes. They are an unholy life unto themselves & walking paratime violations. 
The Hounds of Tindalos wait for these beings to fall & then they themselves feast on the left over remains. They tear the remains limb from limb scattering these beings across space & time.
The birth of one of these beings signals the death kneel for the nearest galactic outpost. They are not life as we know it. Their unholy appetites attract the attention of their parents who often have to reign them in before they destroy everything for 40 light years around them.
