John Oblinger is an Eisbiber and a friend of Bud Wurstner. He was first mentioned in "Of Mouse and Man" and first seen in "Tarantella".


Season 1Edit


He was in the house to which Juliette Silverton followed the woman in the truck. ("Of Mouse and Man") Nick Burkhardt went to the house to find out who the woman was and surprised John and Bud. Together, John and Bud assured Nick that they had only told others about him being a Grimm because no one in the Eisbiber community believed Bud's account of having seen a Grimm. ("Danse Macabre") John told Nick that none of them had ever seen a Grimm before. Nick warned both to ensure that no one else visited his home, or he would return. John said there would be no reason for Nick ever to return, although he added quickly that he was "welcome any time."
