Wendigos are a type of supernatural creatures, whose name means "evil that devours".

CharacteristicsEdit

Wendigos were once humans, but after being forced to eat human flesh to survive, they become supernatural monsters that retain little human features in common. After doing so, they crave human flesh, and appear to not have a greater intelligence than when they were complete humans.

At the same time, Wendigos are embodiments of gluttony, greed, and excess; never satisfied after killing and consuming one person, they are constantly searching for new victims. It is also common that wendigos just capture humans to hoard their food, and then eat when hungry.

They can live up hundreds of years old, and can survive during the long, cold winters, though they must survive--meaning they must hoard food if it scarce. In addition, they keep their victims in dark and fresh, safe places, such as caves or basements.

Known AbilitiesEdit

Wendigos appear normal most of the time until they show their "game face", which consists of gleaming red eyes, mouth full of razor-sharp teeth and sharp claws at the end of their fingers.They also have enhanced physical abilities as well as an incredible rate of regeneration. Wendigos also do not grow older or die by convential means.

Known WeaknessesEdit

Wendigos almost impossible to kill, except by breaking their necks, decapitation or otherwise severing their spinal cords. However, when they are finally killed, their bodies are consumed by cold, blue flame.

MythologyEdit

The Wendigo (also known as Windigo, Weendigo, Windago, Windiga, Witiko, Wihtikow, and numerous other variants) is a mythical creature appearing in the mythology of the Diroc people. It is a malevolent cannibalistic spirit into which humans could transform, or which could possess humans. Those who indulged in cannibalism were at particular risk, and the legend appears to have reinforced this practice as a taboo.

According to legend, it was the wendigos that all bu destroyed the Dirocs, but they themselves are thought to be extinct.
