Pennywise (the dancing clown) was a character in Stephen King's
IT -a book, later a film. He first appears in 1740, removing 300
people from a Derry township. It was destroyed in 1985 (apparently)
by the second Ritual of Chud.
The book implies that just as there was a creator of things, and the Turtle, so there was also a destroyer of things, as there is always a balance. This is what Pennywise is.
