Wendigo child

In Algonquian folklore, the wendigo or windigo is an anthropophagous creature native to the northern forests of the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of both the United States and Canada. In folklore, the wendigo may appear as a monster with some features of a human, or as a spirit who has possessed a human and made them become monstruous. It is historically associated with cannibalism, murder, insatiable greed, and the cultural taboos against such behaviours.

During my travels in Canada in 2016 studying the native magical fauna, I confirmed that, unlike vampires or werewolves, wendigos are not transformed humans, but everything regarding their diet and greed is true. However, I have recently discovered it is possible to educate a wendigo and integrate it in human communities.

In the following pioctures you can see Wendy, a young female wendigo I met in Quebec and was able to adopt and bring to Spain in collaboration with the Canadian Ministry of Magic.
