The Crinfrid Reavers were a group of mercenaries from Crinfrid specialized in fighting dragons and draconids and active throughout the second half of the thirteenth century. Originally they were only three - Kennet, Gar and their leader Boholt and they joined many hunts, like the one Myrgtabrakke, a dragon who lived outside Barefield, organized by King Niedamir.
However, after Boholt lost his memory the remaining two beast hunters decided it would be wise to recruit. Around 1271, they took a first apprentice called "Newboy" and a few years later they had entire bands of men like Jamor and Auwry, which they dispatched to countries as far as Toussaint.
- Gar (Polish: Niszczuka) is also known as Desbrut
- The Crinfrid Reavers appeared in the "Smok" episode of The Hexer.
- The Crinfrid Reavers make an appearance in the prologue of The Witcher 2. At that point in time, they are without Boholt and have a new recruit, Newboy.
- In the Blood and Wine expansion, a group of Crinfrid Reavers make an appearance during the secondary quest, Mutual of Beauclair's Wild Kingdom, where Geralt can reveal they share mutual acquaintances (namely Boholt, Kennet, Desbrut, and Newboy).
