Disambig-icon.png This article is about the elven horde of horsemen. For the armor in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, see Dearg Ruadhri (armor).

The Dearg Ruadhri, or "Red horsemen" are an Aen Elle cavalry unit from Tir ná Lia commanded by Eredin Bréacc Glas.

In the human world, they are seen as a frightening group of spectral horsemen known as the Wild Hunt and lead by the King of the Wild Hunt. They are said to appear mostly in the winter and are harbingers of death and destruction. They are also blamed for the mysterious disappearances and reappearances of people; people who are said to return completely unaged decades after their apparent abduction.

They did abduct humans and because time flowed differently in their world, the ones who were returned did in fact return to the human world decades after being taken even if the time spent among the Aen Elle was relatively brief, giving them the appearance of not having aged.

After Geralt offered his soul to Eredin in exchange for Yennifer's freedom, he served as a member of the unit before Ciri freed him.
