The Owl House Wiki
Advertisement

Eberwolf the Huntsman[1] is a supporting character of The Owl House. He is one of the nine Coven Heads, being the head witch of the Beast Keeping Coven. Eberwolf is also secretly a member of the Covens Against the Throne, a resistance group formed by Raine Whispers to stop Emperor Belos' plans for the Day of Unity.

Appearance[]

Body[]

Eberwolf is a child-sized bestial humanoid. He has a wild mane of auburn hair tied in a big, fluffy ponytail using a yellow, frayed band. His body is covered with orange fur, with some unkempt spots on his cheeks and elbows. His eyes have yellow sclerae with magenta irises and slit pupils, and he has two pointed ears similar in shape to a cat's.

When assuming his bestial form, Eberwolf becomes even more beast-like in appearance. He gains large claws on his feet and toes, and bears many teeth of various types simultaneously, such as fangs, buck teeth, and tusks.

Clothing[]

Eberwolf wears a sage-green sleeveless shirt, a dull brown loincloth in the likeness of a hand or paw with light gray claws, and a pair of dark brown boots with gray soles. He also wears a pair of spiked yellow arm bracers.

In "Hunting Palismen", he wore a white cape with a badge bearing the symbol of the beast keeping coven over his current outfit.

Personality[]

Eberwolf has an animalistic personality; he is very energetic and easy-going, yet vicious when he needs to be. He also has somewhat of a mischievous streak (e.g., listening to Eda's stream from the Gland Prix, and even increasing the volume just to annoy his colleague Darius, when he was supposed to help him interrogate and/or torture Raine). Eberwolf is also rebellious and easily annoyed, going feral when he needs to protect his friends, especially Darius. He does not seem to speak, typically communicating with animal-like sounds, though does appear to understand spoken language perfectly.

Background[]

"Working" for the Emperor[]

Covens - 001

Eberwolf (far left) depicted on the Beast Keeping Coven banner.

Eberwolf, as Head Witch of the Beast Keeping Coven, is an integral part to Emperor Belos' Day of Unity and is tasked with inducting members into the Beast Keeping Coven.[2] He is present when Raine Whispers was inducted as the new Bard Coven Head. Like Darius, Eberwolf is also skeptical of the emperor's plans, and when it is revealed that Head Bard Raine Whispers shares their sentiments, both Eberwolf and Darius set up a ruse to capture the Bards Against the Throne with the intention of secretly joining them.

Eda's Requiem - 763

Eberwolf with the recently captured BATs.

The two Head Witches manage to capture three of the five BATs, but miss Raine, forcing them to continue their search. Much to Darius' dismay, the search gets much dirtier when a pair of magically animated boots kick some mud on him. As his patience grows thin, Darius uses his magic to transform into an abomination-like form as he continues his search, while Eberwolf assumes a more bestial form and summons a ratworm. At first, they get stopped by the decaying effects of Raine's bard magic and Eda's curse, but after Raine stops Eda from continuing their duet, the two Head Witches manage to capture the Head Bard. With Raine captured, Eberwolf passes the time by watching a Penstagram stream, and when asked by Darius to turn it off and help him handle Raine, he simply increases the volume, much to his ire. While Darius and Eberwolf are distracted, Raine escapes, but gets captured yet again by Kikimora and the Abomaton 2.0.[3]

Stopping the Day of Unity[]

Hollow Mind - 081

Eberwolf, Darius, and Raine preparing to enter Belos' mind.

After joining the BATs, Eberwolf, Darius, and Raine attempt to use a spell to enter the emperor's mindscape, but they are interrupted by Hunter. Hunter and Luz accidentally enter the mindscape themselves, causing them to discover the truth about Belos' intentions. The rogue Coven Heads later find the Owl House locked down, learn what has happened, and secretly help Eda get Luz and Hunter out through a teleportation potion concealed in flowers.[4]

O Titan, Where Art Thou - 1307

Eberwolf freeing Luz from her restraints.

Later, Eberwolf and Darius work with Eda, Raine, the BATs, Lilith, and Steve at a secret hideout in Latissa, planning a way to stop the Day of Unity. When Luz is brought to the hideout, Eberwolf chews off her restraints, and she is welcomed into the new name of the group - the Covens Against the Throne.[5]

Clouds on the Horizon - 473

Eberwolf attends a meeting to stop the Day of Unity.

A day before the Day of Unity, Eberwolf joins the team meeting discussing their plan of action to foil Belos' plans. When Raine builds morale with the team by giving a speech ending with the team acronym, the CATs, Eberwolf jumps in the air waving his arms joyfully, seeming to enjoy watching Darius be annoyed by the acronym.[6]

King's Tide (849)

Eberwolf fighting Mason after their plan is exposed.

The group forms a plan to have Eda masquerade as Raine, who is positioned between them and Darius, and getting Eda branded with a Bard Coven sigil so that her curse could disrupt the Day of Unity. When they arrive, Belos places "Raine" between Terra and Adrian, the latter of which dispels the illusion, and this causes a fight to break out, with Eda, Raine, and Darius fighting a losing battle against the other Coven Heads. Eberwolf summons flesh-eating fleas that overwhelm Mason, but he is soon threatened by Hettie, which forces Darius to stand down. Ultimately, the Coven Heads and Belos stop the rebellion, allowing for the Day of Unity to continue and the nine Coven Heads to be drained of their magic. Eventually, Hunter and his friends arrive to check on the weakened heads while on the way to help Luz fight Belos. Eberwolf, along with the rest of the Coven Heads, is soon saved when the Collector stops the Draining Spell.[7]

Post Day of Unity[]

For the Future - 2451

However, he and the other Coven Heads, except Terra, are turned into puppets and placed to guard Eda, who is believed to be trapped in her owl beast form, attacking her if she tries to escape.

Watching and Dreaming - 4714

Eberwolf and Darius silently warning three of the other Coven Heads not to take the throne.

Months later, after Belos is defeated, he and Darius greet Hunter and he tells them about his time in the Human Realm. As Eberwolf and Darius are looking at the newly risen left arm of the titan, they notice Terra, Adrian, and Vitimir heading towards the throne. The two deter them and Darius attacks when Vitimir touches the throne.

Epilogue[]

Watching and Dreaming - 5330

Eberwolf and his teammates watching an attempt to remove a Coven Sigil.

Four years later after Belos is defeated, Eberwolf is part of a team along with Raine, Darius, Alador, and various younger witches researching methods of removing Coven Sigils. After years of research, they succeed. He laughs when Darius greets Hunter afterwards and later attends Luz’s belated quinceañera. Eberwolf and the others watch a light show put on by the Collector.

Relationships[]

Ratworm[]

Eda's Requiem - 897

Eberwolf riding on his ratworm.

Eberwolf has a pet ratworm that he can summon when he pleases. It seems his ratworm will obey and assist him in his needs, as seen in "Eda's Requiem".

Darius Deamonne[]

Clouds on the Horizon - 482

Eberwolf and Darius heading to the Draining Spell in an attempt to stop it.

Eberwolf and Darius are close friends and colleagues. While Eberwolf tends to get on Darius' nerves, the two do care for each other. After learning Darius shared his skepticism of the Day of Unity, they looked into it and, after learning its true purpose, worked together to stop it.

After Belos is defeated, they stop the other Coven Heads from taking the throne, showing they are working together to ensure the old government never forms again.

Emperor Belos[]

Though supported and loyal to Belos, Eberwolf was secretly against Belos and didn't believe his claims about the Day of Unity merging both the Boiling Isles with the Human Realm. He teams up with Darius to find out what Belos was really up to. Eberwolf and Darius then captured Raine and the B.A.T.'s in order to win Belos' trust, but it was secretly a ruse in order to find out what he was really up to. He was shocked when he learnt that Belos was planning to use a Draining Spell that will wipe out everyone on the Isles and sets out to stop him.

Powers and abilities[]

  • Magic: Eberwolf is able to use magic. Like all witches and biped demons, his connection to magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to his heart. Having earned the rank of coven leader, he is undoubtedly very powerful.
    • Beast Keeping magic: As head of the Beast Keeping Coven, Eberwolf can utilize many spells pertaining to Beast Keeping magic, some of which are seemingly unique to him.
      • Bestial form: Eberwolf can enhance his own beastly attributes, such as granting himself enhanced vision, longer, sharper claws, and many sharp teeth of various types.
      • Tracking spell: Eberwolf can cast a spell on himself to increase his tracking capabilities. With the spell cast, Eberwolf was able to find hidden footprints that were invisible to the naked eye and make said footprints visible to others.
      • Beast summoning: Eberwolf is capable of summoning and commanding beast demons, often as mounts or to assist him in battle. While pursuing Raine and Eda, Eberwolf summons a ratworm to ride on. In "King's Tide", Eberwolf summons flesh-eating beetles to attack Mason.
  • Burrowing: While trapping the BATs, Eberwolf hides underground by burrowing.
  • Strong teeth: Eberwolf's teeth are capable of breaking through metal chains, as he did to free Luz from shackles in "O Titan, Where Art Thou".

Sightings[]

Behind the scenes[]

Name and basis[]

Eberwolf appears to be a combination of "eber" and "wolf". The word "eber" is the German word for "boar" and is a short form of the various Germanic personal names. This could possibly allude to Eberwolf's ability to grow tusks, similar to a boar. Eber is alternatively a Jewish name that means "one that passes" in Hebrew, and occasionally, "anger".

Voice[]

Eberwolf is voiced by Kari Wahlgren.

Debut[]

Eberwolf could be seen on the Beast Keeping Coven banner in "The First Day" before making his onscreen debut in "Hunting Palismen", alongside the other Coven Heads. He was properly named in the following episode, "Eda's Requiem".

Trivia[]

  • In "Eda's Requiem", Eberwolf's Penstagram name is revealed to be "RAISEDBYDIREWOLVES".
  • While Eberwolf's gender is not directly stated, Dana and the crew primarily refer to Eberwolf using he/him pronouns.[8]
  • Despite only communicating via growls and roars, Eberwolf seems to understand spoken word, even if unable to speak it. He is able to converse with others with no issue and can also read and write. As the head Beast-Keeper, it can also be assumed that he is able to communicate with the members of his coven.
