A Steinadler (STINE-ad-lur; Ger. "golden eagle", lit. "stone eagle") is a hawk-like Wesen that first appeared in "Three Coins in a Fuchsbau".

CharacteristicsEdit

When woged, Steinadlers gain a muzzle-like face and a beak-like nose. They have sparse, feather-like hair all over their body. They retain their human hair color. Their eyes are an extremely pale yellowish-green color. Like a few Wesen, they can localize their woge in their eyes without altering the rest of their body.

Steinadlers are renowned for their exceptional vision. Their superior vision is a result of having five times more visual sensory cells per millimeter of the retina than humans. They also have special colored oils in their eyes that reflect certain wavelengths of light. These special ocular biologic factors endow them with near perfect night vision and a whole host of other ocular abilities.

Steinadler are incredibly fast creatures, appearing as a blur when they run. They don't appear to be superhumanly strong but are rather durable creatures. However, when it comes to Grimms, Nick was able to bring Farley Kolt to his knees with a single punch to the face. ("Three Coins in a Fuchsbau")

Steinadler Knife is used by Grimms to kill only Steinadlers. The blade is smithed from platinum and dipped in nightshade. A single stab to the heart is often enough to dispatch them.

It is believed that Steinadlers have protoreceptor proteins that allow them to perceive the magnetic field, which is apparently done by turning its head. ("Aunt Marie's Book of Lore")

BehaviorEdit

Steinadlers are known for their ability to poker-facedly exhibit simultaneous friendliness and sternness, so it is impossible to tell whose side one is on. The ability to sternly influence others as though they were subordinate friends makes the Steinadler excellent military figures. They have a reputation for being heroes and adventurers as well as having high intellect and good intuition.

HistoryEdit

The Garde Nationale, an army recruited by Paris to defend it from the Prussians, was led by Steinadler officers.

In Japan, the Order of the Golden Kite was established to distinguish Steinadler in the Japanese military from other members. It was abolished in 1947. ("Aunt Marie's Book of Lore")

Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit

The following excerpts from from L. Grimm's study on the anatomy of a Steinadler that he had befriended in Berlin. This particular Steinadler donated his own body to Grimm's lab for study upon death. ("Aunt Marie's Book of Lore")

A- Steinadler Field of Vision.

B- Binocular Foveal Vision.

C- Vertical Field Perimeter.

D- Monocular Foveal Vision.

E- Binocular Vision

The Steinadler has five time more visual sensory cells per millimeter of retina than do humans. They also have colored oils in their eyes that refract certain wavelengths of light. This intensifies certain colors at the expense of others.

The visual ability of the Steinadler is legendary. Adaptations to night vision include larger eyes and large numbers of closely packed visual rods and cones.

The distinctive brow ridge physically protects the eye from wind, dust and debris, and shields it from excessive glare.

(By Theresa Rubel)
Steinadler Trubel's Diary
I swear this bird guy was smoking outside the coffee shop today. I asked if he could spare some change and he beaked out on me.

I notice a pattern. They get upset I get upset. I see them as monsters. They see me as a monster. They try to kill me or run away.

WHY AM I SO SCARY TO THEM?

Do I make like some scary face? Do I look like I bite? I don't feel scary. I'm just a girl trying to live.
