A Hundjäger (HOONT-yay-gər; Germ. Hund "dog" + Jäger "hunter"; plural: -sing) is a hound dog-like Wesen that appeared in "Cat and Mouse". They are the Verrat's main enforcers. Hundjägers are fast, clever, cold and calculating, making them ideal for professions like assassinations and bounty hunting.
Biology EditHundjäger have a quite severe woge. They grow thick fur over their heads and bodies, long canine ears, a dogs snout, and razor sharp teeth. Although it becomes part of their fur, the imprint of their hair line is still visible. Unlike many Wesen there doesn't appear to be any obvious differences in this form, depending on the gender of the Hundjägers.
Hundjägers are excellent trackers, as they have the ability to track prey over enormous distances and often hunt their prey across whole continents relentlessly. Like several other canine Wesen, such as Blutbad and Fuchsbau they posses an enhance sense of smell, but not one as great as Blutbaden. They also don't seem to be nearly as strong, since they generally rely on firearms to intimidate, subdue, or kill their targets, and Monroe was able to overpower one on two separate occasions; one in his Blutbad form, while the other as a human. Although, as a few of them were willing to attack Nick unarmed, they may have some strength enhancement. They also appear to be somewhat faster than humans, and can kill grown men with ease. ("Season of the Hexenbiest") Like Coyotl and Fuchsbau, their teeth are sharp enough to sever flesh, and they sometimes kill with them.
They're very tenacious when they are on the hunt, they will let nothing stop them form finding their target, and will even randomly kill people, if they believe it will help. An example is when Edgar Waltz followed Ian Harmon from St. Louis to Portland. However, they have a great belief in the sanctity of the rules, such as in the case of the Freidenreden.
Because of their reputation, they are widely feared among Wesen, even by Blutbaden. However, in "Cat and Mouse" Edgar Waltz is surprised and perhaps even afraid when he discovers that Monroe is not a Fuchsbau, but a Blutbad, suggesting that perhaps the feeling is mutual.
Due to both having worked for the Verrat, Hundjägers regard Grimms, as not friends, but convenient allies.
Hundjägers were the enforcers responsible for mass executions of renegade Wesen during the Second World War, a notable example being their infiltration of the Spanish army and monarchy during Franco's regime.
It's rumored that they eat their mothers from inside the womb.
- In "Volume 1 Number 0" Hundjäger are all portrayed with red eyes and black fur.
