The Owl House Wiki

I mean, do I wanna study different kinds of magic? Heck yes! But why is joining the Emperor's Coven my only option? When I get older, I'm gonna give this system a long-overdue update.
—Jerbo to Hunter, "Any Sport in a Storm"

Jerbo is a character in The Owl House. He is a student at Hexside School of Magic and Demonics. He was initially part of the "Detention track" with Viney and Barcus, but is now enrolled in a dual-track that includes plants and abominations.


Jerbo has brown short hair wefted over the right side of his forehead. He has thick black eyebrows and pointed ears, similar to the other inhabitants of the Boiling Isles. He has a pointed nose and brown eyes, however, unlike the other characters, he and Viney do not have white shine in their eyes. He has a cape similar to those of the other students at Hexside, except his cowl is ripped. He wears a gray outfit that had lighter gray sleeves and leggings to represent the detention track.

After getting to choose his own tracks, his sleeves and leggings become green and magenta, respectively, to represent the plant and abominations tracks. Before that, he only had the green of the plant track.

Power and abilities

  • Magic: Jerbo can perform magic by drawing spell circles. Like most witches, his magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to his heart.
    • Plant magic: Jerbo can accelerate the growth of plants.
    • Abomination magic: Jerbo can create fully-functional Abominations that obey his every command. Aside from the normal type of liquid, Jerbo is capable of conjuring Abominations made from other substances.
    • Soil abomination creation: Using Plant Magic infused with Abomination Magic, Jerbo can turn the soil of a plant pot into an Abomination made of it, instead of the normal purple liquid of which the Abominations are made.
