Tindaros is a mistranslation of the name "Tindalos", a reference to the creatures from "The Hounds of Tindalos", a short horror story by Frank Belknap Long - which would later be incorperated into the Cthulhu Mythos - the shared fictional universe of works by H.P Lovecraft, and his contemporaries.
Tindalos itself is an ambiguous name (never clarified as an entity or location), however the "Hounds" of Tindalos are creatures that inhabit the distant past, and exist outside of known time and dimension. In an abstract manner, while humanity and life descended from "curves", the Hounds come from sharp "angles", and hunt something from "curve derived" life. They can only enter this reality through sharp angles, and can be warded off by curved surfaces.
Despite the name, they are only-like in their habit of pursuing things across time and dimesions, rather than anything physically resembling a canine - instead their description is vague and abstract - possibly lacking even a physical body, though there is mention of their heavy breathing and a tongue.
