Legends claim you can bury a botchling under the family's threshold, perform a ritual and turn it into a lubberkin. That's a sort of, uhh... hob, a guardian spirit that could lead me to your family.

- Geralt to Phillip Strenger, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

A lubberkin (Polish: kłobuk) is a friendly household guardian spirit created from a botchling through Aymm Rhoin, an elven naming ritual, during which it is given a proper name and a burial under the hearth of the family estate. A lubberkin looks very similar to a botchling, though the main difference being its ghost-like, glowing, white aura and relatively passive behavior.

Notes

  • Depending on one's actions in Family Matters, one can turn the botchling into a lubberkin that Phillip will name Dea.
  • The game is relatively faithful in portraying this old belief, as in Polish folklore the poroniec also turned into the friendly kłobuk (read: "kwo'book") spirit when a stillborn is buried properly under the threshold of the house.
