Grimm is packed to the gills with all manner of Wesen — half-human, half-beast creatures that were once believed to only exist in fairy tales. As it turns out, Wesen walk among us and are, curiously, concentrated en masse in the city of Portland. Detective Nick Burkhardt has encountered a number of different types of Wesen in the show’s past two seasons — and it looks like there are even more Wesen rearing their furry or scaled heads in Season 3 and beyond.

In the past, Grimms took a “kill first, ask questions later” stance when it came to all Wesen. What makes Nick a different kind of Grimm is the lengths he’s gone to to reach out to the Wesen community and realize that — just like humans — there are good Wesen and bad Wesen. However, unlike humans, certain species of Wesen are more naturally predisposed to being likeable critters while others have a mean streak that dates back to the Middle Ages or earlier.

(After all, not everyone has access to Aunt Marie’s trailer of Grimm lore!) Some Wesen don’t necessarily fall into neat categories of good or bad… but here is a list of some of the different type who haven’t strayed too far from their native characteristics within the confines of Grimm as a series.
