Yeah, I remember seeing the cutscene where Geralt refers to a Katakan as a “higher vampire” to a guard. As you said, this is retconned in B&W, where Geralt refers to katakans as not being higher vampires in a conversation with Damien and the Duchess. A bit of a discrepancy here.

B&W changes the canon for higher vampires, but I do understand the idea of having Rejk’s page referring to what he is in-game. However, I would defend my change of changing the infobox description from “higher vampire” to simply “vampire”; the latter is more general, and while “higher vampire” may be confusing for the reader by sending mixed messages of what one actually is, “vampire” is an inclusive term for whatever he may be. The broader meaning of it suits the ambiguity of Rejk’s race.

In terms of the trivia point I changed, I do agree with your point that the original game’s description of him retconning B&W’s version is noteworthy and that my change - referring to the higher vampire description as “erroneous” - did need undoing. That said, I think the existing wording of it does need altering. Something like “As a Katakan, Rejk is considered to be a higher vampire, but the {{BaW}} retcons this by classing Katakans as lesser vampires”. This may, of course, need improvement too, but I do believe that the wording needs changing on this page.

Yeah, I remember seeing the cutscene where Geralt refers to a Katakan as a “higher vampire” to a guard. As you said, this is retconned in B&W, where Geralt refers to katakans as being lesser vampires in a conversation with Damien and the Duchess. A bit of a discrepancy here.

B&W changes the canon for higher vampires, but I do understand the idea of having Rejk’s page referring to what he is in-game. However, I would defend my change of rewording the infobox description from “higher vampire” to simply “vampire”; the latter is more general, and while “higher vampire” may be confusing for the reader by sending mixed messages of what one actually is, “vampire” is an inclusive term for whatever he may be. The broader meaning of it suits the ambiguity of Rejk’s race.

In terms of the trivia point I changed, I agree with your point that the original game’s description of him retconning B&W’s version is noteworthy and that my change - referring to the higher vampire description as “erroneous” - did need undoing. That said, I think the existing wording of it does need altering. Something like: “As a Katakan, Rejk is considered to be a higher vampire, but the Blood and Wine expansion retcons this by classing Katakans as lesser vampires”. This may, of course, need improvement too, but I believe that the wording needs changing on this page.
