Journal Bestiary Entry[]

"Much has been written about ghouls and graveirs, since they are encountered by common people in times of war or in cemeteries. Cemetaurs are rare, but when they appear in a necropolis, they take it over. All ghouls respect them and must bow to them."



  • In Chapter IV, Geralt can speak with a "Peasant" in Murky Waters (using this model and normally found at the Inn) about Cemetaurs. The conversation does unlock Cemetaurs and their alchemies in the journal.
  • In Chapter V, in Old Vizima after the fighting has stopped, a female "Refugee" (who looks like Grandma) will sometimes ask Geralt for food. In exchange, she will tell him a tale of Cemetaurs.
