- Mountain Dweller (attribute)
- Haunting (behaviour)
A creature from the beliefs of the Nootka Native Americans. Once a man asked his wife to use some cedar bark that he had found to create a robe. While his wife was working, the man wandered in the nearby mountains. He heard his name being called but could not see the caller. Eventually he was trapped by a slimy green Ogre that decided to spare his life but coerced him to do a spiritual fasting retreat. After this he returned home and found that his wife had completed the robes. However he decided to make a mask in the form of the Ogre he encountered and wore the mask with the robes in the Wolf Rituals.
