The most powerful of all the necrophages, the Cemetaur is the true queen of the necropolis. A Graved Dead spells certain death to anyone but a witcher. This is a well-known fact among grave robbers and all who live near battlefields.

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 female graveirs, rare and stronger than it's graveir husbands, 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 unlocks 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.

  • Cemetaur remains will not contain their jaws without this bestiary entry.



  • The name "cemetaurs" is likely a combination between the term "cemetery" and the greek word "thereus" ("beasts").
