Big Mouth Baby
There was once a very vain girl who felt that she was too good for anyone to marry her, but she still wished for a child. So she went to the shaman and he told her that he could help her have a child with the help of the spirits but he warned her that: “No matter how the child looks you must present it to the village and be proud of it or it will go badly for you.”
She agreed to this thinking that any baby she had would surely be cute. However when her child was finally born she found that he was born with a gruesome mouth so large it stretched above his head, which was already filled with teeth. Horrified and embarrassed the girl kept the child hidden in the house, and almost never looked at it.  
One day it was playing just outside her home while she was sewing new clothes for herself when an unnatural seeming storm came up and she heard her baby’s strange cries mix with the wind. Suddenly concerned for her child she ran out to see what was happening but it was too late. Because the child had not been socialized enough he became feral and wild and ate her village before fleeing out onto the tundra. 
The Big Mouth Baby now wonders the tundra, coming out during storms to devour herds of caribou and occasionally people as well.
