    As the thought of desire for human flesh possesses a person, their
    heart becomes ice and they turn Wendigo. They forget that people are people and not just animals to be consumed, and they become a danger to all who pass them by.

    Anwe is like the main smart character in an anime
    (You see I knew you would go there before you go there so I decided to go there before you decided to go there so when you got there I would have already been there)

    Anwe is like the equivalent to a Native American Doomslayer. Brutal, Merciless, Unemotional and full of Fury.
    We would have called him, the Wendigo Slayer.

    This is not the story of the wendigo the story is that it will call your name and it will sound like wind to others and it calling your name give you a temptation to follow the sound and when the Wendigo finds you it will drag you on your feet until the burn off and they’ll bring you into the sky and after they’ll eat you
