The Ak-Moho-Alii appears to be distinguishable in its human form by what was described as "The Mark of the Shark" in a Grimm diary. When woged, they gain a shark-like fin on their head, black eyes, a shark-like mouth, gray skin, and gills on the sides of their neck.
They are prone to a berserker blood-rage that makes them nearly unstoppable and are known for being one of the fiercest predators in the Wesen world. However, their blood frenzy also is a weakness if exploited properly by a Grimm, as they stop thinking logically. According to a Grimm diary entry, they were viewed as warriors who lived by the oaths or doctrines of the tribes they lived with and protected, serving as a kind of "warrior's code," or code of honor.
Grimm Diary ExcerptEdit
The Mark of the Shark
Ak-Moho-Alii live among the tribe as warriors. They are the strong right hand of their gods, but only if those with the 'mark of the shark' honor the divine edicts to never consume the flesh of any creature. Those who do not honor it are banished, as is their entire line, for fear of their blood frenzy. Having encountered this wesen (sic) as both tribal protectors and outcasts, I know this: an Ak-Moho-Alii's dedication, be it for protection or destruction, is absolute.Jacob Kelly, Quartermaster of the HMS Resolution, 1779
- This is the first Wesen with a name in Māori.
- In Hawaiian mythology, there is a shark god known as Kamohoalii or Ka-moho-aliʻi.
