Alghoul is a Creature or Monster in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
"An alghoul's basically a badarse ghoul" - Yarpen Zigrin, dwarven warrior
Alghouls differ from normal ghouls in size, strength, coloring, and, most importantly, intelligence. Whereas ghouls and graveirs are primitive creatures unfit to plan even the simplest ambush, alghouls and their kindred (such as cemetaurs) are capable of forethought, and are thus much more dangerous."
