| And imps, added another, a soldier from the watchtower. They tangle up the horses' manes in the stables!

Bestiary entry Edit
- Really wanna see an angry witcher?
- Do you?
- — Conversation overheard on the streets of Novigrad
- The imp pestering the merchants of Novigrad turned out to be a doppler. These monsters usually avoid confrontation – to everyone's great relief, for when pinned they become extremely dangerous. Fighting them quickly turns into a fight against oneself. Or, to be precise, against a mirror image gifted with one's own strengths and abilities. In a conflict with such even odds, only luck – or destiny – decides the victor.
- Geralt has an extra helping of both, and so won his fight against his doppler doppleganger – then decided to let him go free, for unlike other monsters, this creature's motives for harming humans were noble.
