Does it say anywhere? Even the wiki just says he met a malevolent entity in the Dark Tapestry but doesn't elaborate. Is it supposed to be for the DM to decide? I was thinking it should be Nyarlathotep since he is by far the most evil of the Outer Gods. Also I am wondering if what corrupted him is the same thing that corrupted the void dragons (as it says they were corrupted by something really scary in the Dark Tapestry as well)
I would think there might be some similarities between the corruption of Dou Bral (Zon Kuthon) and the corruption of mortals into Kytons.
I don't remember the name, but in Horror Adventures there were rules for a shadow corruption or something like that. It sapped away positivity in someone's life and made them destroy art and beauty. Interesting read.
So either he went to listen to Azathoth's babbling, just got conned by one of the trickier outer gods, or he went beyond what we know PF's cosmology to be and somehow stepped ... Outside, someplace else.
Honestly, I'd be fine with both.
Well, him just having been manipulated by Nyarly or someone else would maybe be a tad disappointing, but he was probably desperate enough to be ripe for the picking.
More seriously, you're not about to get an official answer before Shelyn comes back from her "investigation", and that's a Starfinder background thing. One I don't expect to see resolved.
Even the gods simply do not know, apparently.
None willing to talk at least.
Ok, maybe Asmodeus.

When Dou-Bral grew jealous of his sister's talents, he abandoned Golarion for the dark places between the planes, and there was tormented and possessed by an alien being.
Sounds like he was already in a pretty dark place, before meeting any alien beings. I wouldn't be surprised if he was looking to get corrupted when he left.
Or alternatively, he was already being corrupted before he ever left for the dark places.
I've always wondered about the Dominion Of The Black. At first I thought they had something to do with the Outer Gods but it turns out they are a completely separate force. Does Starfinder give any more info about them?
Not yet, other than that the cults of the great old ones and the dominion had a spat and the cults kicked the dominion off of Aucturn.
