Capitalism! Where everyone wins, except you.
—Tibbles, "Hooty's Moving Hassle"

Tibblet-Tibblie Grimm Hammer III, better known as Tibbles, is an antagonistic character in The Owl House. He first appears in "Hooty's Moving Hassle", where he captures Eda for money.

Appearance

Body

He is a pig-like character with a curly, red-barbed tail, huge ears, a small nose, and two protruding tusks.

Clothing

He wears glasses with an orchid vest and lilac bow added on to a white dress shirt.

Personality

Tibbles is a opportunistic con artist who jacks up prices and rigs games to increase his wealth for capitalism. He also shows wicked delight in bossing King around by dressing him in baby clothes, and turning over Eda to the Emperor's Coven so he could get paid as a reward. He is not very forgiving and doesn't accept his defeat, as he vowed to take revenge on Eda for destroying his stand.

Background

Tibbles's stand, Mud & Sundry.

Tibbles, occasionally known by his family name Grimm Hammer, is the merchant of "Mud & Sundry" and an opportunistic scammer of the night market who sells various goods like Hinterland weaponry, Winterland curses, and a lethally delicious assortment of jellybeans. He is one of the few vendors of Eda's elixirs. However, when Eda comes to purchase the elixir from him, Tibbles charges a whopping one thousand snails for a single bottle.

With no way to buy the elixir, Eda opts to strike a deal with the opportunistic merchant; if she wins a game of Hexes Hold'em, she gets the elixir for free, but if he wins, he's allowed to take something of hers. Tibbles proves to be skilled at Hexes Hold'em and takes King as his reward, claiming that "little bone boy's" small size would be perfect to model his line of baby clothes. Tibbles also takes advantage of Eda's cursed, weakened state by restraining her in hopes to take her to the Emperor's Coven for the reward on her. However, his plans are foiled when the Owl House steps on his stand, allowing Eda and King to escape and leaving Tibbles to swear vengeance.[1]

Tibbles eventually manages to find a new job as ringmaster of Tibbles's Tent of Tiny Terrors and sends carnival invites to the Owl House, Willow, and Gus. Though he claims that he reevaluated his life and offers Eda an innocent bottle of water, she rightfully does not trust him. In fact, his Tent of Tiny Terrors is just another scam cooked up in hopes to exact revenge against Eda, King, and the children who crushed his stand. Under the guise of the psychic "Obvious-O," Tibbles takes advantage of a saddened King and offers to help him make his problems "disappear" with a magical spray bottle. He assures King that by tapping his cheeks, the potion's effects can be reversed with no harm whatsoever.

However, Tibbles is revealed to be lying to King, and when he finds King, Luz, Willow, and Gus shrunken, he enacts his revenge by plopping the group into a glass tank as food for his tiny terrors. Tibbles takes advantage of the feeding time by turning it into a public spectacle, where the audience has to pay a nonrefundable fee. He manages to accumulate a large pile of snails thanks to his no-refund policy, but when King throws his locket on Tibbles' cheek, he taps it, causing his tiny terrors, King, and his friends to revert back to their normal size. He attempts to shrink Luz and her friends again; Eda takes the spray bottle and dumps her stock of caramel crab apples on him, attracting the attention of the once tiny animals. They then chase the scamming ringmaster out of the carnival.[2]

In "Any Sport in a Storm," it is revealed that Tibbles was responsible for distributing The Good Witch Azura in the Boiling Isles as part of another scam. However, according to the owner of the Book Nook, only one purchase was made, making it a very unprofitable scam.[3]

Relationships

Eda, King, Luz, Willow, and Gus

Tibbles has an antagonistic relationship that initially began with Eda and King and later included Luz, Willow, and Gus.

He bartered with Eda for her elixir, but wanted only to turn her in to the Emperor's Coven for a reward, but after Luz, Willow, and Gus accidentally destroyed his stand, he grows a personal resentment toward them.

Mattholomule, and Tinella Nosa

Tibbles runs a scam with Mattholomule and Tinella Nosa, reselling edited The Good Witch Azura books for profit. Their scam is uncovered by Luz and Amity in "Any Sport in a Storm". Not much else is known about his relationship with them besides this.

Powers and abilities

  • Business knowledge: Tibbles is shown to have a successful stand where he sells goods and potions. After it was destroyed within a short period of time, he was able to gather resources for another one at the carnival.
  • Magic: Tibbles displays magical abilities of his own, such as creating a shrinking potion that would only wear off if he patted his cheeks, and using spell circles to summon magic chains to restrain Eda. In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door," it is revealed that he is a Biped Demon, a classification of demons that walk on two legs and possess bile sacs like witches.
