Wendigos are evil creatures made of ice which have the power to freeze you with ice shards shot from their hands. They go down quickly, but you will go down even more quickly if you don't keep moving, because these things are faster than they look. Don't let their hairy bulk lead you into thinking they are slow and stupid; they're stupid, but they're not slow. Wendigos can't be frozen (probably because they can't get any colder).
