Hässlich are generally large and bulky creatures. Upon woge, they gain leathery 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 Hässlich gain large goblin-like ears, while others keep their normal ears. Their skin tone also varies from a yellowish green to a brown or tan color.
They are stronger than humans and are able to match blows with a Grimm. They appear to be as strong as Blutbaden, but they are not as fast. 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 possess their great strength and durability regardless if they woge or not.
Hässlich have a natural interest in bridges and have found their niche in inspecting bridges. There is an ongoing feud between Hässlich 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 they demand payment from the constructors, normally Eisbibers. If they are refused, they will kill. They also have no qualms about killing other innocent Eisbibers, even if they're unrelated to the construction, simply to set an example to the rest.
