And after all these years... after many moons and many hunts, the Makkapitew still roamed free. Out of my grasp, beyond my reach.
 

The Makkapitew is the main antagonist of the Prologue. He was the strongest of all the Wendigos.

The word Makkapitew is an Algonquin word, meaning "one who has big teeth". He is described as the fiercest of them all by The Stranger.

Until Dawn

Background

The Stranger's grandfather dedicated his life to hunting Wendigos. Despite his prowess, he could not defeat the Makkapitew, who in turn killed him instead.

Involvement

One Year Ago

The Stranger was hunting the Makkapitew on the same night of Hannah's party. After she and Beth fled the lodge after Jessica and Mike's prank on Hannah, the Makkapitew began hunting them. The Stranger succeeded in killing the Makkapitew with a Flamethrower, but only after it drove Beth and Hannah off the cliff, killing Beth and seriously injuring Hannah.

Theory

When the Makkapitew was killed by the Stranger, his spirit was released. It is implied that he next possessed Hannah, causing her to experience severe hunger and cravings of (human) flesh. Even so, she resisted for over a month before she resorted to cannibalism.

Hannah's possession by the Makkapitew is evidenced, after the escape of the other Wendigos from the Sanatorium, by her strength and dominance over the other Wendigos.

It is possible that Josh will become the next Makkapitew if he survives until dawn, due to him being the next known person on the mountain to succumb to cannibalism around the mines.
