The Wendigo is a cannibalistic creature of Algonquian folklore over fifteen feet tall, with glowing eyes, yellowed fangs, pallid skin, and an emaciated body. According to folklore, its insatiable appetite for human flesh comes from its unsavory origin: the Wendigo is created when a human, facing starvation, resorted to cannibalism to survive. Modern interpretations have illustrated the creature as a forest dwelling mammal of North America like a stag or a moose.
