Once a lost hunter, this being grew so hungry in the freezing cold that it fed on the flesh of fellow humans. This taboo deed lead to the being to have an eternal hunger for human flesh. The legend of the Wendigo came from Algonquian Native American folklore and shows a rather gruesome side to nature and supernatural at the same time.
The Wendigo is said to only be found in cold places, including Canada. Thanks to the immunity to cold, harsh conditions, it can survive even the worst of snow storms. Some describe the Wendigo to be a cousin of Bigfoot, some describe it as a cousin of the Werewolf. No matter what it is relative to, it indeed isn’t something to be sought after.
There are several additions to the Wendigo legend. It has been fabled that the Wendigo can infiltrate the minds of others to turn them into fellow Wendigo. It has been fabled that the Wendigo is fast, or it is extremely slow. Nonetheless, one attribute that remains the same throughout stories is that the Wendigo can mimic human voices to lure its prey.
They always look so much like a rake…
