Overview Image Gallery

Seers[1] are small jellyfish-like Grimm that can float in the air.


Seers have small, spherical bodies that are covered with bone-like plates, along with red tentacles ending in white, bony barbs and a single eye.


A Seer appears in "Of Runaways and Stowaways" entering Salem's meeting hall and informing her of the current situation at Beacon. Salem instructs it to reinforce the academy's Grimm population.

Two Seers appear in "Dread in the Air" and are used to allow Leonardo Lionheart and Arthur Watts to communicate with Salem and Cinder Fall and report to them regarding the location of the Spring Maiden.

Salem confronts Lionheart using a Seer when he tries to escape in "Haven's Fate". After he begs for mercy, the Seer disarms him before dragging him toward it and killing him.

Powers and Abilities

The Seer can float in the air and appears to be able to keep tabs on the other Grimm and, through them, acts as a scout for Salem. It also has 360-degree vision with distorted colors that is shown as a fishbowl effect when seen from its perspective.

Two Seers can be used to allow long-distance communication between two parties, live depiction of the participants being able to be shown to the others via a red smoke-like substance that manifests in the head of the Grimm. This method of connection between two Seers can also allow Salem to directly manipulate the actions of the distant Seer.

Their tentacles are stretchable, very powerful and prehensile, the barbs of which can be used as sharp weapons to kill.


  • A seer is someone with supernatural insight and who can see the future. The Seer Grimm serves as Salem's eyes over the other Grimm. This is also referenced in the Grimm's resemblance to a mystical crystal ball.
  • The clicking sound the seer makes was originally done as an audition by William Orendorff during Volume 1 for the Death Stalker.[2]
