There is very little known about Torque and his species. Tomasz Baginski explains, 'He looks like a devil. He behaves like a devil, like the one from the Christian faith, but he's not. He's a thoughtful creature.' Geralt is recruited by the locals to get rid of Torque, whom they have already tried to poison. Torque has been living in the fields, stealing crops and grain for the elves who live in the mountains nearby.
