The Ufuku Okusheshayo has speckled fur covering most of its body in its woged form, as well as cheetah-like facial markings. It also has deadly fangs, easily capable of puncturing the neck of its victims. However, its most notable characteristic is its incredible speed, as it is one of the fastest creatures in the Wesen world.
Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit
Our expansion into West Africa continues steadily. During our latest expedition, I came across an indigenous tribe that had previously eluded me. The Ukufu Okusheshayo people are intensely private, which accounts for our lack of contact heretofore. We uncovered them while pushing through the depth of the Congolese jungle, and quite by accident.
At first it seemed the males were the most aggressive but in fact it was the females who exposed their true nature first – a beast with demonic fangs and speckled fur. While in this state the beast displayed remarkable speed – more so than any other creature I have ever seen. It is this speed that proved to be the most dangerous quality, but we quickly overcome it by putting a series of traps surrounding their den. Once contained, the Ukufu Okusheshayo are quite simple to exterminate. A combination of decapitation and fire was effective in our elimination of the beasts.
- This is the first Wesen with a name in Zulu.
