Giant centipedes, also known as "yghern" in Αρχαία Διάλεκτο, are found in the forest of Brokilon and possibly elsewhere. They are about twelve feet in length with dark brown chitinous armor. They are very dangerous and tend to wrap themselves around their victims before poisoning them. They are related to myriapodans.

While on their way to Duén Canell, Γκέραλτ and Braenn confront such a beast who is threatening what appears to be a halfling in the short story "Miecz przeznaczenia" ("Το Ξίφος του Πεπρωμένου"). The "halfling" ultimately turns out to be Ciri.


  • An enormous Giant Centipede known as the Viy της Maribor ruined the elven city upon which Maribor is built.
  • In the short story "Το Ξίφος του Πεπρωμένου", a giant centipede attacked Ciri in Brokilon. Braenn called the beast "Yghern".

"Giant centipedes are said to have been raised in the Brokilon Forest and released into the world by vengeful dryads. The creatures are believed to be invincible, as they simply divide into two separate living beasts when cut in half. All this nonsense about giant centipedes only shows how intensely common people fear these venomous beasts, as they fear all things that are not human."
