Drew Wu is a police sergeant at the same precinct as Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin. He serves as an assistant to Captain Renard and he often arrives at the scene of a crime before Nick and Hank. After being scratched by a Lycanthrope, ("Lycanthropia") he started changing into a primal version of himself when his emotions were high. Initially, he blacked out and didn't remember anything that he did in this state, but he later was able to gain control over his newfound form. ("Good to the Bone") ("The Taming of the Wu")

Following a hunch, Wu visits his cousin at the butcher shop he works at. He tells him of Dana's attack and that the attacker's methods resemble that of an Aswang.

Wu later shares his Aswang theory with Nick and Hank, then quickly brushes it off as lunacy.

"Iron Hans"

"You Don't Know Jack"


"Cry Havoc"

Just as Bud emerged the zombie attacked and all three men retreated into the freezer. With the zombie hammering on the door with its fists, Wu asked Bud if the freezer locked. Bud handed him a wrench and Wu used it to lock the door. Wu then called for backup on his radio.

Part 4 "Dance with the Dämmerzustand"

Wu heard Hank's voice outside the freezer, so he opened the door. He warned Hank about the zombie and watched while Hank knocked the zombie out with one punch. Wu then said that they had worn him down.


Wu's demeanor was defined as somewhat sarcastic, and with a dry sense of humor; he was also very by the book, and followed protocols to the letter. He was protective of those he cared about, as seen when he frequently watched over Dana Tomas during and after her recovery. ("Mommy Dearest") He was also well-versed in video games, which he attributed to living alone at his apartment, except for his cat Samson. ("The Thing with Feathers") ("Nameless") ("Heartbreaker")

Like with Juliette, Wu had exhibited a certain degree of fascination towards the supernatural after Nick and Hank told him about Grimms and Wesen. After being obviously disturbed at first, his overall demeanor did not seem to change; if anything, he adapted just as easily as Hank did and began reading multiple Grimm Diaries in the trailer soon after being told the truth. ("Tribunal")

Whenever his primal side emerged, Wu's personality and manner of speech tended to become more crude and primitive.


Wu was particularly skilled in surveillance technology and was often called on by his superiors to help them review recorded videos of crime scenes, which made him a valuable asset to the Portland Police. He also specialized in intercepting electronic calls, provided he had the necessary equipment at hand.

He was very adept at solving puzzles, as seen when he figured out that all the authors in the clue papers were writing under aliases when they wrote those particular books and when he solved the killer's Sudoku puzzle to make a certain date, and that the killer's alias would be significant to that date. ("Nameless") He was also a very capable profiler since, after gleaning on the information found in the trailer and recalling the similarities from a previous case, he was able to correctly deduce that a Manticore was present at a crime scene that he was overseeing before Hank and Nick arrived. ("Maréchaussée")

He could also speak Tagalog, seen when he and his cousin, Angelo, were speaking to each other at Angelo's workplace. ("Mommy Dearest") Wu also had some knowledge concerning mythological creatures such as the Aswang and the Chupacabra, along with superstitious beliefs, like a rabbit's foot bringing luck. ("Mommy Dearest") ("Chupacabra") ("Bad Luck")

After contracting the viral infection of Lycanthropia, ("Lycanthropia") Wu developed the Wesen-like ability to morph into a primal version of himself, which greatly resembles a Neanderthal. While in this state, he had the strength and ferocity to kill a Skalengeck, despite being pinned down, ("The Taming of the Wu") and he had proven to be capable of killing two Hundjägers with ease as well. ("The Beginning of the End") Wu's transition was gradual at first and resulted in him blacking out when in his primal state, but once he took Revocare Tenebris and found out about his condition, he displayed increasing amounts of control after some help from Nick and his friends. ("The Taming of the Wu") ("Bad Night")

Season 5 Blu-ray Grimm Guide Profile

The bite of a Lycanthrope will turn an average Blutbad into a Lycanthrope, a super Blutbad that goes into uncontrollable rage when the full moon is out. But when Wu (an average human) is bitten, it turns him into a more primal, Neanderthal form - Primal Wu.
