A Willahara (vil-uh-HAHR-uh; O.Eng. willa "pleasure, desire, wish" + hara "hare") is a rabbit-like Wesen that was seen in "Bad Luck".


Willahara are known to be an especially fertile Wesen species, capable of producing a large number of offspring. In their woged state, there appears to be some slight variation between genders in their appearance. Males gain white fur covering all of their neck and most of their face except for the area just below the eyes, the tip of their nose, and the area of the philtrum. The first two incisors elongate, and their ears migrate towards the top of their head and become rabbit-like and pointed at the top. In females, the coloration of their fur is not pure white and is mostly brown, with the white hairs being more accentuated around the mouth, ears, and area of both eyebrows. Their first two incisors elongate just as the males' do, but their ears become more elongated and do not stand as straight as a male Willahara's ears.

When woged, Willahara feet gain fur covering most of the dorsal surface and all of their ankles, with no fur growing on their toes, which reduce to just four digits (their hands still have five). Their toes and toenails elongate as well. They do not possess an enhanced jumping ability in their woged state but are fairly quick.


Willahara are very passive creatures, not liking to woge in front of even other Wesen. Like many Wesen, they are afraid of Grimms and avoid them. They also greatly fear Wesen who hunt them for their feet; these hunters are known as Leporem Venators. Willaharas are still being victimized by these hunters and have been hunted for so long by them that all members of the species know of them without even needing to see them. They are instantly recognizable to Willaharas by the tremendous labryses they wield as well, a type of axe. Once a Willahara family becomes targeted, they do not stay in one place very long but will continue to stay together.

Excerpt from Grimm DiariesEdit

In Old English:

Ich haue îfunðen þet þe Willehara is iþught ben sume maner of ... yðel.

Bicause of þe fruinhde Kynƌe of þisses Wesen, hit is iþoght gooðe speeðychge anð gooðe wastumberenðnesse arenbistowene on newe-weƌƌeðe cuples þet fremmen þe ðeeð inemneð Speƌigberenðess.

Þe forme of þe ðeeð mot euere ben þe same. ... þet þhe conioigrwng mai beginnen, þe ... foot of þe Willahara mot ben ìsetten ... cuple þet willen bigeten betwehe hem ...

... þet þe fresehere þe foot, þe ....þe ... ben. ...limpen.

Some of this text has been translated into English:

... Due to the fecund nature of this Wesen, it is believed that good fortune and fertility is bestowed upon newlywed couples who participate in a practice known as Spedigberendess... Before relations are to begin, the severed Willahara foot must be placed beneath the couple wishing to procreate.

It is believed that the fresher the foot, the more fertile the female will be. Within three days, conception will occur.

A rabbit-like creature. It is believed that good fortune and fertility is bestowed upon couples who participate in Spedigberendess, a practice that involves placing a severed Willahara foot below the place the couple wishes to procreate. Willaharas don't woge in front of other Wesen, afraid of being exposed.



  • The intended meaning of Willahara, according to story editor Thomas Ian Griffith, was valuable rabbit.[1]
  • Apropos with the past history of the Willihara, the Bennett family's surname is related to the medieval name Benedict, both ultimately originating from the Late Latin name Benedictus, meaning "blessed."
