It's unknown when the Laufer was first founded, but the Grimm's first became aware of them during the Second World War, when the Verrat infiltrated the Spanish army and monarchy during Franco's regime and began mass executions of Wesen suspected of being in the organization.
The Laufer are also hostile to the Grimms due to the latter's tendency to work as mercenaries for the Seven Royal Houses and the Verrat, under the belief that they share the same goal of enforcing order among the Wesen. The members are unaware of the fact that the Grimms and the Verrat are only allies by convenience.
Many North-American Wesen consider the Laufer (and their war with the Verrat) to be a distant problem and as so not of their concern but Laufer-cells (and Verrat-agents) have become more active in the United States. At least one cell in Portland, Oregon was running an underground railroad to help wanted Wesen escape the Verrat.
It's also unknown how the Laufer is organized but, apparently, one of the main leaders is Ian Harmon.
