• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Just another typical work day.

Jakub Wędrowycz is the protagonist of comedic short stories by the Polish author Andrzej Pilipiuk, most of them Urban Fantasy set in Poland in the late 80's and 90's, collected into several books.

Jakub is, on the surface, your typical bum. He's an old man (at least an octogenarian) who dropped out from school after three years of elementary education and who lives alone in a dirty house on the outskirts of the village of Wojsławice; he consumes gigantic amounts of alcohol, makes just as vast amounts of moonshine, hunts homeless animals for food and barely bathes or changes his clothes.

Oh, he also happens to be a master exorcist, a powerful psychic and a skilled mage.

His adventures include both dealing with countless Aliens and Monsters (including ghosts, demons, an undead Vladimir Lenin, neanderthals and psychic trees) and generic Slice of Life (but what a life it is!) misadventures induced by his scatter-brained tendencies. And lots of illicit activities, moonshine-brewing being just one of the many.

Stories about Jakub Wędrowycz exhibit examples of the following tropes:
