- In Polish, aside from "ćwierćelf" (literally "quarter-elf"), Sapkowski sometimes uses the word "kwarteron", which translates as "quadroon", a word lifted from actual history, part of a hypodescent vocabulary developed to distinguish levels of either African or Australian Aboriginal ancestry, which is now considered offensive. However, likely because of the real-world connotations, the word was left out of the English translation of the books by David French. Term "quadroon" was also sometimes used in the English products from CD Projekt's The Witcher franchise.
