The Urban Wendigo

“He cast a grim shadow 
through the busy street 
Said he was a junkie 
The Urban Wendigo is a modern day version of the dreaded wendigo from Native American folklore.
The Wendigo is a cannibalistic beast from Native American folklore and legend. It is the most feared of all monsters and spirits in Native American folklore and mythology. It is known to possess people and cause them to develop an unnatural hunger for human flesh, it becomes so ravenous according to legend it will resort to eating its own flesh.

The urban wendigo is a person who is possessed by the wendigo spirit either by a curse or by committing a cannibalistic act either for self preservation or for darker reasons. The first time they taste human flesh, they make themselves known to the wendigo who then influences the soon to be urban wendigo to consume more. Once down this path, the would be wendigo becomes addicted to the taste of human flesh to the extent that regular food no longer satisfies them.
