BiologyEditWhen woged they bear a specific similarity to a wild boar, with a pig-like snout, pointed ears and wrinkled face.
Like their enemies, Bauerschwein have a superhuman sense of smell, but do not seem to gain any other physical enhancements.
They are known for being diligent and hard-working, and are capable of interacting with humans in this manner. Unfortunately, Bauerschwein are not particularly strong Wesen, and as such they are noted to be constant victims of the Blutbad.
Bauerschwein often take mud baths to help ease their minds and think.
Relationship with BlutbadenEdit
The Blutbad-Bauerschwein feud goes back centuries, and the two races are so much embroiled in the feud that every incident where harm has come to the Bauerschwein from murders to suicides are blamed on the Blutbad. The feud is very one-sided, as Blutbad kill Bauerschwein, simply for entertainment, and Orson was very likely the first Bauerschwein to fight back and kill a Blutbad.
Relationship with GrimmsEdit
According to Orson, Grimms and Bauerchwein have never been enemies and seem to be allies. This changed when Orson engaged in a revenge killing spree after Angelina Lasser killed his brothers.
A known family of Bauerschwein are the Orson brothers, two of whom were killed by a Blutbad two years ago. George Orson and Stanley Orson were killed by Angelina, the ex-girlfriend of Monroe, a reformed Blutbad. The third Orson brother, an arson investigator in Portland, was unharmed in the attacks and became Angelina's target after he killed her two brothers, one by exploding his house, and the other, Hap, by three gunshots in the chest and one in the head.
- The name "Orson" is reflective of Orson Pig in the U.S. Acres segment of the Garfield cartoon series.
- A reference was made in "Tarantella" to a Wildschwein (pronunciation: VILT-shvyn; Germ. Wildschwein "wild boar") by Monroe. No such Wesen has been seen in the series so far, and from the context in conversation, Monroe may have slipped when meaning to say Bauerschwein.
- The official Grimm site lists the translation as "peasant pig."
- Contracting the German words Bauer and Schwein into a compound noun usually would make Bauernschwein (note the additional n in the middle) - a term not typically used but referring to a domesticated pig.
