When Langkowski originally forged the link between himself and Tanaraq he had complete control. As time went on however he began experiencing violent rages, and eventually Tanaraq took full control of Sasquatch. Walter's soul was saved, and placed in the Box Mark II armor in Alpha Flight (1st series) #24. Walt wanted an organic body, however, and lost his soul in the Crossroads of Infinity trying to control the mindless Hulk in #29. His soul later possessed the miniaturized body of Smart Alec and returned through Shaman's pouch. He then transfered his mind into Snowbird's deceased Sasquatch form in #46. This resulted in him becoming an amalgam being, unable to assume his true form, or Narya's, but instead became human by accessing Snowbird's power to morph into a female, white-haired version of himself. The Eskimo Gods later removed Narya's essence from the body in #68, reverting him to a man and orange-furred Sasquatch.
