Stregobor (Olgierd Łukasiewicz) in The Hexer TV series

Stregobor is a Kovirian wizard and a master illusionist, as well as a staunch believer in the "the Curse of the Black Sun". He features in the short story The Lesser Evil.

"But Stregobor always looked as, according to every rule and notion, a wizard should look. He was tall, thin and stooping, with enormous bushy grey eyebrows and a long, crooked nose. To top it off, he wore a black, trailing robe with improbably wide sleeves, and wielded a long staff capped with a crystal knob."

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

He lived in Kovir for most of his life, serving under king Idi, together with the mage Zavist. There he also met Geralt; they didn't part as best friends.

Stregobor in the "Mniejsze zło graphic novel

Some time later, Stregobor was sent to Creyden, because of Aridea's suspicions concerning her stepdaughter, Fredefalk's eldest child from his first marriage, Renfri. The wizard came to the conclusion, based on the girl's behaviour and nature, that she was indeed one of the sixty girls accursed by the eclipse.

  • He plotted with Aridea to kill the girl, and the queen sent the princess to the woods with a huntsman. They found the man later with a brooch pin stuck into his brain, and no trace of Renfri.
  • Stregobor returned to Kovir, sought to hunt down the girl. In time, the hunter became the hunted, and he survived three assassination attempts before fleeing to Pontar. Renfri followed him there, too, so his next stop was Angren, before he settled into Irion's tower in Blaviken, and assumed the moniker Master Irion.
  • For a year, Stregobor managed to live in peace, helping the people of the town, becoming 'their' wizard.
  • Renfri still sought to kill him, but of the two of them, he survived that fateful day, telling Geralt that he would move back to Kovir. He invited Geralt to follow him because the simple villagers would not understand.
