Bestiary Werewolf.png

Lycanthropy - a truly horrible affliction, a curse cast upon men by vile witches. The transformation into a werewolf renders the person of any sense and control over one's body and mind, although there are some exceptions to this rule. These creatures are nocturnal, their affliction being triggered only by a full moon. It is said that this curse can only be lifted by the means of true love. In the case of a witcher not having this solution at the ready, he will resort to exploiting a werewolf's weakness to silver by using their iconic silver sword or crafting bombs containing silver shrapnel.

Geralt of Rivia (Polish: Geralt z Rivii) is a witcher and the protagonist of the Witcher series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski and its adaptations (including The Witcher, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and the upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt computer games). Witchers are monster hunters for hire. They possess nearly superhuman abilities and are expert swordsmen.

Geralt is known also as Gwynbleidd (Elder Speech meaning "The White Wolf", a name which was given to him by the dryads), as well as the Butcher of Blaviken.

Andrzej Sapkowski, born 21 June 1948 in Łódź, is a Polish fantasy writer. Sapkowski studied economics, and before turning to writing, he had worked as a senior sales representative for a foreign trade company. His first short story, "The Witcher" ("Wiedźmin"), was published in Fantastyka, Poland's leading fantasy literary magazine, in 1986 and was enormously successful both with readers and critics. Sapkowski has created a series of tales based on the world of "The Witcher", comprising three collections of short stories and five novels. This cycle and his many other works have made him one of the best-known fantasy authors in Poland in the 1990s.

DuckDuckGo now sports The Witcher Wiki search bang!

I submitted a proposal for The Witcher Wiki DuckDuckGo search bang (!tww) and they just accepted it! You can now search directly in the Wiki through DuckDuckGo using !tww bang (very useful for example if you set DuckDuckGo as your default search engine in the browser, so it gives you ability to search in the wiki straight from your browser search bar).
