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