The Crones – a sort of witches – are three monstrous sisters that keep children imprisoned in Crookback Bog and eat people. They play a large, magical part in the Velen region and also keep contact with The Wild Hunt. Through the cut-off ears of the inhabitants of Velen they know everything that happens. Visually the Crones are delightfully gruesomely designed. The figures bring to mind the Slavic folk tale of Babu Jaga and the Norns from Norse mythology.
