Sanftriese (Ger: Gentle giant):

A race of ape-like Wesen that are based off the orangutan,   they are very large and bulky but rely more on their intellect rather than their brawn when it comes to dealing with things.

They are said to be very wise and kind despite their bulky frame,  and they are very sweet natured and are passionate about many things,  especially anything artsy.

In woged state they have fur on their hands and feet as well as well as semi ape-like features and fur on their faces,   sometimes males will have what appears to be a scruffy mane of hair and much rounder puffed up cheeks,   which is made to look emulate the cheek flaps that real orangutans.

Occupation wise they are usually artists or painters or designers or work in the theater profession.

A famous example of this Wesen species was Glenn Shadix,  known for his role of Otho Fenlock in the movie Beetlejuice.

They trust Grimms and respect them and are very generous,  often helping often Wesen out at times.

A race of serpentine Wesen that are the inspiration for the Loch Ness Monster, they are very rare and elusive but despite the mystery that surrounds them - they are gentile and peaceful.

Even though they are serpentine, they are amphibious like frogs or salamanders/

In their woged state their neck elongates and their features take on a half reptilian look and their hands become webbed.

A race of Cheetah-like feline Wesen, they are known for their cat-like reflexes and amazing super-agility.

They tend to be extremely devious and crafty, and often quick-witted.

In woged state they grow fur with a spotted pattern on their hands and feet and their fingernails grow longer and sharper until they resemble claws, the shape of their nose becomes feline-like as their teeth sharpen.

A race of Tasmanian Devil-like Wesen, they are known for their bad temper and violent outbursts.

These guys are anti-social and gruff and also quite vicious when angry, they can also emmit terrifying screams which can destroy anything within the mile radius.

In their woged state black and white fur grows on their face and hands, they develop razor sharp clawed fingernails and their teeth sharpen - their brow also thickens to make them look more aggressive.

A race of ferrett-like Wesen, they are playful and mischevious, they enjoy playing practical jokes and playing games - sometimes inventing games of their own.

These guys play practical jokes frequently and enjoy having fun, younger ones especially children seem to enjoy playing together in groups.

In woged state, they have brownish or cremish fur and a semi ferret-like muzzle as well as paw-like hands.

langeschnabel (Ger: Long-beak):

A race of bird-like Wesen based off the Kiwi bird, they are very strange but unique species.

They are very skittish and eccentric in their own ways but are very in touch with nature and are nocturnal.

In woged state they have brown feather coating on their arms, back, and chest, and they have short talons in place of fingernails or toenails, their nose grows longer and takes on a slightly beakish appearance, and their eyes turn black with no pupils and shrink.

They love gardening and working in the department of horticulture, they eat special kinds of worms that help their feathers stay shiny and prevent them from molting

Verderben (Ger: Doom-laden):

A race of crazed, demonic fae-like Wesen that serve as the inspiration behind the tale of the Dullahan of Irish folklore.

These Wesen tend to be crazy or psychotic at times and don't like to be disturbed or watched, for if something else other than another Wesen or a Grimm watches them, then they were will put a curse on that person that makes them suffer from various things including dementia and the feeling that they are going to die.

Although they are considered psychotic and crazy, these guys rarely ever kill unless they are disturbed.

These Wesen are amazingly fast and can dart around rather well in the air, most times they are seen on some type of transportation or getting on and off one, if a non-Wesen or someone other than a Grimm is around when they're not on a transport of some kind - that person will become deathly ill as this wesen hisses the person's name.

Like Geier, they work in the medical profession and use human organs and bones to make things - especially weaponry or other items.

In woged state their skin takes on a more sickly texture and their hair becomes long and tangled, and their teeth sharpen as their eyes glow and their mouth stretches out into a twisted grin. An ability that this Wesen has is that it can take it's head off and carry it under it's arm.

These Wesen are often confused with Shreckengeist because of the being inspiration to a headless supernatural being thing, but they are entirely different. A Verderben's main weakness is that they are repelled by gold and other shiny materials and minerals. Which is why the glücklich (leprechaun-like Wesen) are often said to be rivals of these ones.
These are all my Wesens
