This was a cannibal monster believed to live and terrify the Inuit people of the Hudson Bay in Canada. This creature of human form would gain trust in mother of a small child. When left alone with the child he would steal it and take it to its lair. At its lair it would suck the life out of a child by piercing its head with a needle or straw.
