A cannibalistic female that preys on the Inuit people of Canada. Her body is covered in hair and she has only one leg that emerges from her vagina. Her leg ends in a twisted foot. She is reported to be extremely grotesque and tracks the footprints of Inuit hunters during the long winter nights. She is most successful on her hunts during a blizzard where she can get close to her victims to pounce on them and devour them alive. It is believed that anyone who looks at her gaze will be petrified and die instantly. When the Inuit people spot the tracks of one twisted foot they avoid travelling any further in fear of the Paija.
