A Hybrid is a being who is the product of a union between two types. Two types of hybrids have been seen so far, natural and artificial. An example of a natural hybrid is Sean Renard, the son of a human father and Hexenbiest mother. An example of an artificial hybrid is Pierce Higgins, who is a Genio Innocuo and has Löwen DNA due to his mother altering him while he was in utero. ("The Other Side")

Characteristics

405-Renard woged

Sean Renard

If a human produces offspring with a Wesen, the results vary. In the case of a Hexenbiest, the offspring will inherent the ability to woge. However, due to their nature as hybrids, the offspring will only have a partial woge; certain parts of their bodies will appear woged while others will not. Despite this, the offspring will still have a degree of Wesen powers, as Sean Renard has demonstrated a degree of superhuman strength characteristic of Zauberbiests. Naiads have to mate with humans since their men are sterile, meaning all Naiads are technically hybrids, but the Naiad strain is dominant, so all are considered full Wesen.

Alexandros

Alexandros Jenkins, shortly after birth, had the physical appearance and mental capacity of a young boy.

In the case of artificial hybrids, it is unpredictable what will happen. An artificial hybrid will have two different sides of woge. Their natural Wesen form will be their dominant form, which they will have complete control over. Their secondary unnatural form will exist as a separate personality with its own ambitions. During times of extreme stress, the secondary form may temporarily take over. Having to coexist may cause the primary half to experience fatigue and major headaches. The primary half may go for years without knowing about their secondary half. It should be noted that all of these characteristics were exhibited by Pierce Higgins, so it is quite possible that other artificial hybrids do not display all of these characteristics, if any.

Genetics

According to Rosalee and Monroe, under normal circumstances, if a spouse is a Wesen and the other is a normal human, then there is a fifty-fifty chance for the child to be Wesen. In a Kehrseite-Genträger (KERR-zy-tuh-GEEN-t⟨ʀ⟩ey-guh; Ger. "reverse side" + "gene carrier") and Wesen couple's offspring, it will result in a Wesen child in all cases. Also, if the two parents are Wesen but of different types, then the offspring will be considered a Vorherrscher (FOHR-hair-shuh; Ger. "prevalence") with the dominant strain's biological characteristics being more prominent; however, there is a small risk of health issues. ("Stories We Tell Our Young")
