|Actor:||Silas Weir Mitchell|
Eddie Monroe is a fictional werewolf and one of the main characters from the NBC television series Grimm. Played by actor Silas Weir Mitchell, he was introduced in the pilot episode of the series and was credited in every subsequent episode.
Monroe is part of the supernatural community known as the Wesen and is a member of the subspecies known as blutbad, which is the Wesen equivilant to a werewolf. Monroe lives at 418 Hildabrand Road and earns his living as a clock maker. Monroe considers himself a Wieder blutbad, which is to say, he is a reformed blutbad who distances himself from the more savage primal urges of his brethren. At one point, Monroe possessed the killer instincts of other blutbad, but through a strict regimen of diet, drugs and pilates, he has found some inner peace. Monroe finds himself in an unlikely and sometimes uncomfortable alliance with homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who is also a Grimm - a hunter of Wesen. Nick recognizes that Eddie is a reformed Wesen and often employs his aid on cases involving the supernatural.
When Nick Burkhardt was investigating the disappearance of a young girl named Robin Howell, he witnessed Monroe shift into his blutbad form and immediately suspected him. He tackled him in his home and had him arrested. However, the police had to let him go due to lack of evidence. Hank later returned to Monroe's home where he revealed that he was a Grimm. Monroe convinced him that it was actually another blutbad responsible for kidnapping the girl and he reluctantly assisted Nick in tracking the perpetrator down. Since then, Nick has called upon Monroe to help him in various situations. 
When Nick's dying aunt, Marie Kessler - a former Grimm herself - was laid up in the hospital, Nick asked Monroe to keep watch over her, knowing that her life was in danger. Monroe despised being asked to protect another Grimm, but did so anyway. Three men came into the hospital with the intent of murdering Marie Kessler. Monroe followed them to an empty room where his blutbad nature took control of him and he dismembered them.
