The Witcher Fox Children

Ship on the cover of graphic novel Fox Children

The Prophet Lebioda is a modern sloop of Koviri type, built in Novigrad, launched less than a year ago as the Melusine, but later renamed to Prophet Lebioda. Sixty four feet long, the total sail area is three thousand by three hundred feet. Single masted, with the gaff mainsail at the back, headsail and two jibes on the forestays.

The figurehead, instead of the standard maiden, mermaid, dragon or sea serpent, shows Prophet Lebioda as a bald, bearded man with a hooked nose. Before renaming it, it showed Melusine, but Kevenard van Vliet, owner of the ship and businessman of the tanning industry, decided to change it in order to please Novigradian priests. Captain of the ship is Boxcray.

The Witcher: Fox Children Edit

The ship is also featured in the graphic novel "The Witcher: Fox Children" (issue 3). In contrast to the book-version, Prophet Lebioda in the graphic novel isn't a sloop; the licensors, CD Projekt RED, changed the design to fit the look of ships in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. [1]

Trivia Edit

  • In later years (more than a century later) the ship has become a legend, perceived as a ghost ship.
