Ghu

Ghu (pronounced "goo," with the silent fannish H, also GhuGhu) is the earliest fannish ghod.

Revealed by Donald Wollheim and John B. Michel on August 6, 1935 Ghu is either a beetle living on Vulcan or Wollheim personified – or possibly both, depending on who was defining it and when. Various members of the New York Futurians served as acolytes with fitting high-sounding church titles.

Ghu's holy color is purple because Ghuists publish using spirit duplicators or hectographs and the primary ditto or hecto carbon is purple.
