Alright, so I think I figured it out.
It's something that my perfectionist brain HATES me for, but I gotta do it because I really think it fits better than it currently does.
I'm gonna take the name Lazarus from my vulture griffin and give it to my wendigo, because as much as I love the name for the griff, it's literally the ONLY name I've been able to associate with the wendigo. I don't have another way around it. He looks like a Lazarus. It's the only thing that fits.
As for the vulture griff, I'm still thinking on a new name for him. I'm super picky about naming my OCs so it might take a lil bit of time.
I have one name I'm seriously considering, but I'm gonna think on it longer.
So yup. Wendigo is finally named and is now a legit OC. All hail Lazarus!
Also sorry for switching the name like this, I know it's annoying and mildly confusing, but I didn't bring the vulture griff out too much (cuz I'm still not perfectly happy with him for some reason) so hopefully it doesn't bother too many people.
