|Behind the Scenes|
The Allegewi is a giant, humanoid cryptid reported to live in the Allegheny Mountains which cut through the United States and Canada. Standing between an impressive 15-25 feet, they are feared to be highly intelligent man-eaters, and have been stated as wielding tools and wearing primitive clothing. They are cave-dwellers, preferring those near the tops of their mountain homes.
Surprisingly, they appear to hunt for sport rather than strictly for survival, a trait also found in not only humans but also some primates such as chimpanzees, and even reported in dolphins. Another similarity to chimps is that they will capture a prey item before releasing it to catch it again, possibly as a way of training their young, similar to cats.
Some reports indicate that they are reptilian in nature, while others insist that they are hominids. In fact, certain legends state that they are in fact a lost tribe of Native Americans, somehow related to the Adena tribe. These legends suggest that they were the best dieted of all tribes, and were notably stronger than any others. They could be identified in these days by their prominent chins and, when skeletalized, their cranial cavities.
