Dean: What's your name?
Yokoth: Yokoth. Star of madness. Ravager of galaxies. Mother of faceless hordes.
— Yokoth and Dean
in The Thing

Yokoth was a goddess from another reality.

History

Together with her mate Glythur, Yokoth consumed most of their universe. They were also the parents of "faceless hordes."

In 1925, rogue Man of Letters Diego Avila and the Men of Letters in the Portsmouth, Rhode Island chapter house performed a ritual to open a portal to Yokoth's universe.

Yokoth passed through the Rift and possessed the body of a kidnapped woman named Sandy Porter. After possessing Sandy's body, which killed Sandy in the process, Yokoth devoured Diego and most of the other Men of Letters before trying to summon her mate, Glythur. The survivors managed to close the rift Diego opened and bind Yokoth before she could succeed.

In the aftermath, the Men of Letters disavowed the entire incident, banned all the survivors, and sealed the chapter house. Unable to kill Yokoth, the survivors and their descendants, led by Diego's family, worked to keep Yokoth sealed up.

In 2018, Yokoth pretended to be Sandy when the hunters Sam and Dean Winchester found and released her.

After Sam and Dean bring "Sandy" to a diner, Sam is captured by Marco and Ophelia Avila, and they reveal to him the truth about Yokoth and how their family was guarding her. At that moment, Yokoth captures Dean and brings him to the bunker that she was held in.

When Dean woke up, Yokoth explained that the real Sandy had been dead for a long time, and then revealed her true name. She explained her past as god from another world and how her mate, Glythur, was trapped there after she came through. She revealed that she abducted Dean so she could reopen the rift between universes and give Glythur a vessel so that they could devour all the worlds in Dean's universe. Dean protested, but Yokoth silenced him and performed the ritual to reopen the rift, and then performed a Summoning Spell for Glythur.

Yokoth watched with glee as Glythur's tentacles emerged through the rift and attempted to latch onto a horrified Dean, who attempted to dodge the tentacles but struggled due to being chained down. Before Glythur could fully restrain Dean with his tentacles, Sam arrived with Marco and Ophelia, and the three and attacked Yokoth. While Yokoth was distracted, Dean managed to free his right hand, snatch the Seal of Solomon from her, and toss it to Ophelia, who used the seal to reverse the spell.

Yokoth shows dismay at Glythur being prevented from entering, but she quickly becomes fearful as Glythur uses a tentacle to drag Yokoth back into their universe, and she screams as the rift closes behind her.
