The Thing Beyond the Door was an Eldritch being with considerable influence over the history and present condition of the world of Sierna and which at one time had manipulated the Mage Imperial Seer Legate Lamnus. It was first lured to Sierna, which had been a place of power for it, and imprisoned Behind the Door at the Twilight of the Mage Imperium in a political coup by Seer Legate MacDonald and his occultist lackey, Siebern. While nominally a conflict between the Thing's puppet, Lamnus, and MacDonald, the construction of the Door was likely also a move in a much longer game between the Thing and MacDonald's "Friend."
The Door Edit
The Door itself is made of a strange, otherworldly metal. It reflects and refracts light at impossible angles, making it difficult to focus one's eyes upon. Examination of the frame yields some scant evidence that the door was constructed somehow with the involvement of quicksilver. The room that contains it is itself affected by the door, being pulled in towards it, although each surface is perfectly level when measured. It is housed in The Tower of the Door.

After the death of MacDonald and the Sundering of the Imperium, the Door was used by Aztlan and Siebern in order to contact the Thing to help Aztlan ascend to the role of High Priest of Xol. Siebern, of course, sought to imprison the Thing for his own purposes, while Aztlan, on realizing the deception, used the last of his own power to imprison It behind the door once again.
Much later, a small group arrived on Sierna and quickly found the Door. The Thing Beyond the Door attempted to influence a member of the group, J. Paul Getty. It gifted him a firearm that drained part of the user's flesh and sanity when fired[CONFIRM].
