Said to be a canibalistic disease of the heart/mind in which the affected person consumes the lives of other humans and things with no regard for the natural balance of things… equated to greed and a deep fear of lack.
WENDIGO Demonic creature from the legends of the Algonquian peoples. Malevolent, cannibalistic, strongly associated with winter, the North, coldness, famine, starvation. Gaunt, emaciated, with the ash grey complexion of a corpse. Symbols of gluttony, greed, excess. Never satisfied after killing and consuming one person, they were constantly searching for new victims. The most frequent cause of transformation into a wendigo was resorting to cannibalism.
This is an image from Until Dawn of the Wendigo and I chose this one because it is very different from the one from Hannibal and I want a variety of ideas and possibly put some together to get my own unique design. - A.M.
