Check out the Netflix’s The Witcher bestiary guide video below:
From the goat-like Sylvans to the Striga creature that had vampire fans drooling, the books, games, and TV series had a plethora of monstrous beings to learn about and eventually see die. That’s the thing, you don’t go up against Geralt and expect to live, that’s just a big L waiting to happen.
The documentary delves into the roots of many of the creatures faced in the show specifically, including the Pig-Faced Lady of Europe that has a harrowing magically origin following a curse laid down by a beggar. Don’t forget the Roachhound either, an assassin-bred creature also referred to as a Krallach, that loves to dismember its prey on the run.
With Season 2 well underway, much of it began before the continued spread of COVID-19 and its imposed quarantines, it will be exciting to see what other creatures make their way into the show that we have yet to see, especially for those that invested so much time into the massive games from CD Projekt RED.
