The Wendigo: malevolent and cannibalistic creatures. Human beings will transform into Wendigos if they perform cannibalism. Once transformed, the individual will become violent and obsessed with eating human flesh. These monsters are the embodiments of gluttony, greed, and excess. They have been classified as giants and upon transformation the human will grow considerably in size. They populate rural and highly forested, mountainous regions.

I've seen dozens of depictions of the mythical Wendigo, but this is the visual inspiration I used when writing the Last Wendigo in 'Alice Will.

The wendigo may appear as a monster with some characteristics of a human, or as a spirit who has possessed a human being and made them become monstrous. It is historically associated with cannibalism, murder, insatiable greed, and the cultural taboos against such behaviours.
