Biography

In Megami Ibunroku: Devil Survivor

Wendigo makes an appearance in Megami Ibunroku: Devil Survivor at the end of the Day Before. He appears attacking Amane Kuzuryu, who temporarily joins the protagonist's party during the fight. The Wendigo is much higher level than the rest of the party, other than Amane, so the fight is essentially between them while Yuzu Tanikawa, Atsuro Kihara and the protagonist fight a couple lesser demons. Wendigo survives the fight and swears revenge before he retreats. With Wendigo gone, Amane also leaves the party.

History

A cannibal spirit of Algonquian myth. Highly associated with coldness and famine, and are also embodiments of gluttony, greed, excess, etc. Some say that those overcome with greed turn into a Wendigo. All beliefs about the Wendigo agreed that humans could turn into a Wendigo if they become cannibals or if they are possessed by a Wendigo. It was once described as "gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave." They are large and grow even more with each human they eat.
