Magical Mobile

"Magical Mobile" collectible card

Grimm is a major villainous character in Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders. He is voiced by Peter Fernandez. In the Polish version of the show, his name was changed to Szatan (Satan).

Grimm the dragon is a big, ornery and mean magic animal of the antagonist Lady Kale. He is capable of breathing fire and is the only creature in the world that his icy and cruel mistress cares for. Kale's vehicle of choice is a "Dragon Wagon", carried by Grimm across the skies of Avalon.

Book 06

Background Edit

His mighty wings propel the Dragon Wagon vehicle carrying the evil witch Lady Kale (whose Jewel Armor is dragon-themed) and her pet magic animals, the dweasels Rufus and Twig, through the sky with tremendous mobility and speed. Fortunately for her good enemies the Jewel Riders, Grimm is stronger and faster, yet not nearly as intelligent as their unicorns. He is also not as agile as Princess Gwenevere's own flying Sunstar, however is capable of breathing yellow flame on command.

Sneering and snorting, the dragon creates a dark, sinister presence in the sky. Like Archie, he can talk on his own and not through a bonding jewel like the dweasels. Kale and Grimm are very close to each other, and he is utterly loyal and completely devoted to her. The otherwise cold and very haughty Kale affectionately calls him her "big baby" as he calls her "Mum-mum"[1][2] (and even as Grimm smells nasty, according to Fallon, Kale tells him she likes the way he smells[3]).

Grimm's demise in "Spirit of Avalon"

Between the events of the seasons one and two, Rufus and Twig temporarily relocate to the Dweasel Nook after Kale's destruction in the episode "Full Circle" and before her return in "Morgana". They take Grimm and he lives with them during this time.

Eventually, in the show's next-to-last episode "Spirit of Avalon", Kale, Grimm and the dweasels all end up turned into crystal statues by Princess Gwenevere and Ian, who use the combined magic of the Staff of Avalon and the Crown Jewels to defeat them, during which Grimm crashes into a cliff. They then only make a brief appearance as statues in the final episode, "The One Jewel" .

Behind the scenes Edit

Grimm 2

During the show's pre-production, Grimm used to have a goatlike beard, and more twisted horns. The Wagon was shown to be more crude-looking in some sketches.

The Manticore (upper side) in Avalon

In Avalon: Web of Magic, Grimm seemed inspired the characters of both the evil monster Manticore and the good red dragon Drake (the dragon Gwyx also has a somewhat similar name).
