Mamunes are small creatures of the Northern Kingdoms countryside.

Behavior Edit

Mamunes are said to prevent folk from finding their way home after a night out at the inn, not unlike misguids. Usually not regarded as a massive thread, the commoners of Dol Blathanna in Aedirn,[1] as well as those from Vizima and Velen areas of Temeria, offered witchers coin for protection against them.[2][3]

Mamune glands have hallucinogenic properties and can be used to brew Resonance by Higher Vampires.[4] They are said to gather on the eve of Saovine.[5]

Notes Edit

  • In The Witcher, mamunes can be sometimes seen dancing around Geralt but don't interact otherwise.

Trivia Edit

  • In Slavic Folklore, the mamuna (also called dziwożona) is a female demon who lives in swamps and lakes, and lures travelers (usually married men or pregnant women) into a horrible death. Their name is related to the biblical Mammon, a malicious entity that embodies the concept of greed and gluttony.
