An angiak is a certain type of faerie that used to be human. The legend goes that in times of low resources, Eskimo tribes would set their unwanted babies out into the cold and leave them there to die. They would then become spiritual beings, like ghosts, not quite dead, and haunt their cruel tribe for abandoning them, claiming the area as their own and causing the tribe to have to move to new hunting grounds.
