"The Weendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tautly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Weendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody [....] Unclean and suffering from suppurations of the flesh, the Weendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption."
― Basil Johnston, an Ojibwe teacher and scholar

User with this ability either is or can transform into a Wendigo: a malevolent cannibalistic spirit strongly associated with the Winter, the North and coldness, as well as with famine and starvation. It was variously a malevolent cannibalistic spirit that could possess humans or a monster that humans could physically transform into, with those who indulged in cannibalism were at particular risk.

General form tends towards emaciated gauntness, looking and smelling as if recently disinterred from the grave, size ranges from human to gigantic.





  • Many users have cannibalistic urges, especially if they gained this power by traditional means, ie. ritualistic cannibalism.
