Jim Kouf said in one of his post-season 3 interviews that they plan on doing another Spanish and Filipino story, and likely a Chinese one too in season 4, so maybe one or more of those will end up being non-Wesen beings

Filipino = Engkanto
Spanish = I'm thinking something that is centred around the Day of the Dead. Or La Planchada. A ghost nurse who killed all her patients. In other versions, she heals them. :S
Chinese = ...I searched. I have found several http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghosts_in_Chinese_culture

Duende's are a funny one to do. If they like you, they bring you good luck. If they don't...bad luck. xD So you have to spoil them with gifts, so they'll like you. Oh...and they LOVE little kids, sometimes they kidnap them. <- that part won't be funny. Spoiling them would be pretty funny.
Manananggal is like the Aswang. It just segments itself and FLIES!!! But they're called wakwaks because the sound of their wings.
I don't know about Dwende or Manananggal, my guess is that those were the concept for the Aswang episode, but the went for the Aswang... so I think they maybe will give us something else (I would love to se a Dwende, tho).
for the Spanish episode I would love to se an alebrije-like wesen... and about the Chinese one...well, there's so many myths and creatures to start guesing now; we'll have to wait for it...
well specifically in Slavic mythology a Vedmak is a male witch so yes it can be classified as a Zauberbiest but the Vedmak seems to possess more positive qualities. They seem to treat animals and human kindly, protect humanity and best of all, they force witches to stop commiting evil (look out Adalind)
but on the other hand they are believed/thought to be connected to the devil in some way and even causing pestilence, so there seems to be a supernatural/biblical connection the Vedmak seeing as how the killing of cattle and spoiling of livestock is connected to Pestilence.
I guess Vedmak could also be considered Slavic skinwalkers only more varied since they can shapeshift into either a horse, a moth or more traditionally a wolf and to add to their supernatural nature, they are supoosedly immune to enchantments ( I don't if Hexenbiest spells/curses qualify as enchantments but apparently magic does nothing to these guys)
So far a Vedmak in my opinion sounds like some kind anti-Hexen/Zauberbiest creature
it's your call hoenstly on wheter a Vedmak could be considered non-wesen or even be involved/associated with the universe the show takes place in guys, I just wanted to bring it up out of interest and see what you guys would have to say about it
The Hebrew letters on the creature's head read "emet", meaning "Truth". In some versions of the Chelm and Prague narratives, the Golem is killed by removing the first letter, making the word spell "met", meaning "dead".
hi i am from persia, in good soldair episode, has been told that mantikor is from persia, i know a lot of about our fairy tail stories, but i never heard of it and my grand mothers too,
i liked blam in laliorana, and like trubel too,
mostly ,famale wesens
That's because the manticore was a myth created by people not from Persia. It was said to live in Persia, and the myth was perpetuated by people who had never been there.
we have here maderazma that is more fun than mantikor,why they dont make it perpetuate ? persia has alot of fairy tale cretures. when we watched that episode we become so sad that an english wesen is attached to us.:(
What about that episode based on Georgian mythology such as Ocho Kochi. Ocho Kochi translates to Mingrelian (Ocho "half" + Kochi "man"), it is creature with hairy body and head, axe like stone horn on breast which kills travelers. Creature could be Non Being, it would be amazing to see Monster like creature. It would be amazing to see Georgian wesen also.
Regarding the non-wesen page, are we sure Volcanalis is a demon? It seems more like a fire elemental to me. It's attachment to a natural area and feature seems to fit the description of an elemental more. Just wanted to put that out there for whoever is in charge of that page to reconsider the clasification. I suppose I could just make the edit myself, but it seems insensitive to do that without the community discussing it first and all of us agreeing the reclassification is correct.
