Karkinos
510-Karkinos Grimm Diary

A Karkinos (KAHR-kee-nohs; Anc. Gr. Καρκινος "Cancer") is a giant crab-like Wesen that was seen in a Grimm diary in "Map of the Seven Knights".

CharacteristicsEdit

When woged, Karkinos' hands turn into powerful claws, and their skin becomes an armored crab-like carapace. They were immortalized by the Greeks when one of them famously fought Hercules.

TriviaEdit

  • Cancer is one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac. The Latin word cancer means crab, and its symbol has often been represented as such. In Ancient Greece, the poet Aratus was the first to call the crab Καρκινος (Karkinos).
