Wendigo are beings who lived deep within the forests throughout the Americas and even said to have been throughout Europe and Asia in smaller number. They are on the darker side of the spectrum of creatures as they are often associated with cannibalism. However, it's important to note they do not eat their own kind, they were opportunists who would eat anything that came too close to them when they were hungry. Over time the Wendigo came to represent the darkest side of the human cultures who recorded these monsters into legend, but as actual creatures they were simply primal in nature and would eat anything that came into their territory. Wendigos can range in size and shape. They are human-like but have hide-like skin and some were reported to have grown horns or antlers. The size, shape, and coloring of various Wendigo populations varied by where they lived. Wendigos in primarily colder areas were said to be larger, hairier, and more brutal while Wendigos in primarily warmer climates were smaller, more human-like, and more inventive in predatory action than brutal. They practiced an ancient form of magick known to their species which included higher-level creation of potions and a powdery substance they ground in a blend that could render someone temporarily blind and deaf.
