|“||Three more creatures emerged from the darkness, as noiselessly as ghosts. [...] The first, on the left, scrabbled its claws like a huge spider, stopped moving and shuffled its numerous legs. It was a pryskirnik.||”|
— pg(s). 136, The Lady of the Lake (UK edition)
A pryskirnik is one of the creatures Geralt encountered in the basement of the Pomerol estate in Toussaint, along with a korred, a kilmulis and a creature which resembled first a candelabra, and later a Christmas tree with glowing eyes and which didn't feature in any witcher tomes.
