- Schirrú, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game
Audio version:
Schirrú voice line

Schirrú (d. 1267) was a half-elf, sought for manslaughter in Dorian by Codringher and Fenn. He hired the Nightingale gang to kill Geralt. He was also one of Vilgefortz's secret agents and partly responsible for the murders of both Codringher and Fenn.

He was captured by the Caed Myrkvid druids for trespassing in their sacred grove and burned alive inside a Wicker hag, together with Homer Straggen and other members of the Nightingale gang. This act was apparently a precedent for the Caed Myrkvid druids but it was lifted directly from people's superstitions about their practices and was meant to serve as an example for future intruders.

Trivia Edit

  • The idea of a wicker effigy used for human sacrifice is a historically documented druidic practice, see Wicker man
