A Hydra-worshipping Deep One named Sedna is banished to a small island not too far from Innsmouth. A lighthouse gets built on this island and one of the keepers (Bartholomew Tagg) falls in love with her (she is casting an illusion of being a beautiful native American woman). Sedna is disgusted when she gives birth to a human-looking child, so the keeper, worried that Sedna might kill them, gives them to an Innsmouth family to take care of. As time passed, Sedna brooded and began killing solitary hybrids that came her way, so the Esoteric Order of Dagon bound a Star-spawn to the island so that she could never leave it. Jump ahead, and the great granddaughter of Sedna, Moira Brookes, discovers her lineage and wants to meet Sedna, but is unable to do it alone. Recruiting the investigators, they make their way to the island, only to learn that they cannot leave due to the Star-spawn.
