Netflix's Witcher Trailer Reveals First Look at Foglets

Netflix finally revealed a new trailer for the much-anticapted series The Witcher, and while we got plenty of new footage of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, we also got a brand new look at one of the more well-known monsters from the books and games. At one point in the trailer, we see a creature revealed by the moonlight, and if you've played the game you'll recognize the form, but also the fog swirling around it. This would be known as a Foglet, little gremlin looking creatures that are able to blend into the fog and reappear at will, using it to pounce on their prey. They are mostly found in swamplands or the shore, places where fog is ever-present, and they are quite deadly, especially the older and wiser they become.

While we don't see it in the trailer, Foglets can also create illusions of other Foglets, using it to confuse and surround their prey until the rea3l one is ready to strike. We can't wait to see this play out in the show, especially since Foglets are vulnerable to the Quen sign, which forms an orange magical shield around Geralt, and he'll likely use that against them at some point in the series.
