The species of monstrous humanoid known as sasquatch is a cousin race to the wendigo of Northrend. These massive humanoid stands 9 feet tall. It looks vaguely ogre-like, but is covered in a furry, sandy-colored pelt. It has long, sharp claws and a hungry gleam in its eye. They are huge beings of limited intelligence and even less personality. They roam singularly and prefer solitary hunting. Sasquatch are incredibly strong and fiercely territorial. They have sharp claws and are very fond of human and orc flesh. Though they will eagerly kill elves who encroach on their territory, it is well established that sasquatch will not eat elven flesh, instead leaving their night elf victim's corpse where it falls, untouched. (Sasquatch seem to be able to distinguish between night and high elves, perhaps by smell, and have no problem devouring high elf flesh.)
Like ogres, sasquatch tend to solve problems by smashing them. Unlike ogres, they tend to avoid other creatures, unless it is to smash or eat them. They prefer forests, but will occupy any convenient location that provides them with food, treasure, and things to smash. Fortunately, Sasquatch mate only rarely. In groups, their aggression can be devastating to unprepared heroes. Sasquatch are matriarchal, and as a result, bands of Sasquatch typically represent a mother with her young, often only a single litter. Sasquatch are non-discerning in combat. They tend to use their claws and great strength in melee combat to rend their opponents.
In CataclysmEditThis section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
The sasquatch will finally make an appearance in the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. They'll use a brownish skin of the Northrend yeti model.
