Walter Dempsey was at the abandoned warehouse that Monroe was taken to after he was kidnapped.
Hässlichen are generally large and bulky creatures. Upon woge, they gain leathery yellowy green skin, a large nose, and sharp needle like fangs. They also lose all facial hair when they woge, and gain creases running through their forehead. Interestingly there seems to be a variation in their species, as some Hässlich are bald in their true form, but all the ones who are Reapers still have their hair. Likewise, some Hässlichen gain large goblin-like ears, while others keep their normal ears. Some also appear to have slightly different skin tones.
They possess above human strength and are able to match blows with a Grimm. They appear to be as strong, but are not as fast as the Blutbaden. Hässlich are also incredibly durable. They are able to take multiple shots from a handgun before they die, as well as knife wounds, and excessive blunt force. However they are still as vulnerable as a human to other methods of death, such as beheading or having a crossbow bolt hit them in the neck. They also don't get tired easily. They still possess their great strength and durability, regardless if they woge or not.
Hässlichen have a natural interest in bridges and have found their niche in inspecting bridges. There is an ongoing feud between Hässlichen and Eisbibers, so during a bridge inspection, the Hässlich inspecting agency will usually get the better of the Eisbiber construction firm. The Hässlich also believe that all bridges are theirs, so demand payment from the constructors, normally Eisbiber. If they are refused, they will kill. They also have no qualms about killing other, innocent Eisbiber, even if they're unrelated to the construction, simply to set an example to the others.
Hässlich are seemingly a communal race, and commonly interact with their own kind.
