The Sasquatch is a creature with origins in North American mythology, legend and folklore. In particular, it has origins within the indigenous natives of North America's Pacific Northwest.
Many scientists speculate that the Sasquatch is a 'missing link' between the genetic lineage of man and ape; while it stands upright, it still has more simian build and facial features (except its toes, like a human's, are not prehensile). Sasquatch also have notoriously large feet, disproportional even to their already hulking physically stature.
Solitary, except for mating; nocturnal.
Strength and durability at least proportional to its size; abnormally large feet, even for its large statue, suited to powerful stomping, kicking and the like.
