The Black Cat and Dog
- Animalistic Abomination: They look like their animal namesakes, save for the Glowing Eyes of Doom and the fact that they can talk, but are instead magical beings bound in animal shapes, their thought processes and desires completely alien to humans.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: They were intended to be companions for Iris specifically because Olgierd was no longer capable of loving her, but they couldn't love her either - it was not within their natures.
- Familiar: They are bound to Iris von Everec as her companions. Her being a ghost doesn't release them from their duty.

A smart and powerful grave hag that fed on the remains located in the Velen village of Lindenvale's cemetery.

- Blue-and-Orange Morality: She is outraged that Geralt stole the skulls from her lair, accusing him of being a thief and declaring if he wanted skulls he should dig up his own. Being a hag, she views this as a offense punishable by death while ignoring the fact she killed and ate a child from the nearby village.

- Butt-Monkey: Every time he encounters Geralt he ends up embarrassed or wounded by the Witcher. Their final encounter in Blood and Wine has Geralt note this, suggesting that Tailles not try a fourth time.
- Dueling Scar: He was left with a nasty one during his first fight with Geralt after challenging him to a duel the Witcher had to accept or be hanged, with the additional rule that Geralt could not touch Arthur with his sword or be subjected to a painful death.

Hen Gedymdeith / Gerhart of Aelle

Lytta Neyd's apprentice.
- Absent-Minded Professor: He is the ancient and renowned leader of a wizarding research complex is and utterly out-of-touch with reality.
- Affably Evil: He wants to remove Geralt's eyes due to needing a sample of a Witcher's eyeball cells for his transhuman research, and it has to be gathered from a live specimen. However, he is perfectly willing to let Geralt go after that, and even offers to help Geralt regenerate his eyes in a two or three years, when he hopefully perfects the procedure.
- For Science!: Although he is a reasonably kind and nice man, especially for a wizard, his morality holds a very distant second place after his magical research. Add to this his general "for the greater good" attitude, and some of the results can be rather unpleasant. Ortolan angrily berates Geralt for killing some of the monsters created by their research team and their predecessors, accusing the witcher of disrespect towards science and knowledge. The fact that these "masterpieces" were killing people by the dozen flies over his head completely.

The right-hand man of the Bloody Baron and local fist-fighting champion of Velen.
