A Schmerzen-Kaninchen (SHMAYR-tsen kuh-NEEN-shin; Ger. Schmerzen "pain" + Kaninchen "rabbit") is a rabbit-like Wesen that was referenced in one of Rosalee's books in the spice shop in "Goodnight, Sweet Grimm". They are described as being one of several types of Wesen that can induce a trance-like state called Dämmerzustand (deh-mer-TSOO-shtuhn; Ger. "trance-like state"), and it does this through its infectious bite. Not much else is known about the species.
In order to cure a victim suffering the zombie-like effects of Dämmerzustand, they must have their central nervous system stimulated in the last stage of the condition, of which the most efficacious way to do so is via subcutaneous injection of the treatment using a Piqure-Gigantesque.
Excerpt from Rosalee's BookEdit
Dämmerzustand is caused by several different types of Wesen such as the Schmerzen-Kaninchen, who induces the state through his infected bite, and the Cracher-Mortel, who can induce paralysis, cataplexy, hypnagogic hallucination and the temporary illusion of death through an infected spit that is absorbed through the skin or inhaled.
