The Gozerian Alphabet is an alphabet consisting of 26 letters observed in the Gozerian mythology.


Ghostbusters: The Video GameEdit

The Cult of Gozer employed Gozerian in both their sub-culture and in summoning rituals and generating barriers. Gozerian could be seen adorning their ceremonial clothing and inscribed on various objects. In combat, a Cultist Summoner chants in Gozerian and summons lesser entities such as the Flying Skulls.

Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

After Idulnas possessed Janosz Poha, he wrote the names of the four Ghostbusters in Gozerian on the wall of Poha's cell at Parkview Psychiatric Hospital. The Collectors teleported to the physical plane and captured the Ghostbusters, whisking them away to Collectors' Limbo. All attempts to paint over it failed and the Gozerian kept reappearing. Kylie Griffin consulted and confirmed they were "bad mojo" from readings taken. When the Ghostbusters returned to New York, the Gozerian began to glow very violently and P.K.E. levels spiked. The Collectors returned in pursuit of the Ghostbusters. Kylie was able to reach Janosz and the host took back control of his body. Janosz used paint and was able to modify the spell so that the Collectors' prey was now Idulnas.
