Flying drakes are creatures similar to dragons.
I don't hunt dragons ... I hunt forktails, for sure. And dracolizards. And flying drakes. But not true dragons; the green, the black or the red. Take note, please.

Local folklore in Lower Posada tells of flying drakes terrorizing the village's vicinity.

Notes Edit

  • Sapkowski uses name "latawiec", which can be translated as "kite". Unlike the English word, though, Polish latawiec has only two meanings: flying toy for children or a demon often translated as a Fiery Serpent.
