Meet the ladies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yennefer of Vengerberg and Triss Merigold of Maribor.
Yennefer of Vengerberg is a sorceress and Geralt's lover, even though their relationship is somewhat complicated. She acts as a motherly figure towards Ciri and looks at her as if she was her own daughter. Yennefer like all sorceresses is sterile and although she attempted many times to find a way to become sterile it was to no avail. She's a close friend of Triss Merigold , who also loves geralt and acts as his canon lover in the previous Witcher games.
Yennefer taught Ciri about magic and although she was very strict at first, she softened and became a very good tutor to Ciri, the child of destiny. Although very beautiful, Yennefer is actually in her nineties and she has her famed looks because of magical help. One of the more notable things about Yennefer is her lilac eyes, and she always uses lilac and gooseberry perfumes. She is rarely seen without wearing black and white.
Yennefer has not been in a Witcher game before, but she makes her debut in the upcoming, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The player will be able to choose Yennefer as a romance option for Geralt. Yennefer was seen in many flashbacks in The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings, and is revealed at the end that she is most likely still alive an in the city of Nilfgaard.
Triss Merigold of Maribor is a sorceress and Geralt's close friend and lover. She is also a close friend to Yennefer of Vengerberg. Triss is in love with Geralt and is very jealous of the relationship of which Geral has with Yennefer, even though the bond they share is very complicated. Triss took it upon herself to act as a motherly/sisterly figure to Ciri , during her time at Kaer Morhen.
During Blood of Elves, Triss falls ill and Geralt and Ciri help to nurse her back t full recovery. Triss even though a sorceress, she is allergic to magic, and could not administer any of her magical potions on herself. She is not allergic to amulets however.
After the Thanedd Coup, which occurred when mages employed by Nilfgaard had planned a surprise attack on the northern mages while at a planned reunion on Thanedd Island, the Brotherhood of Sorcerers disbanded and six weeks later the Lodge of Sorceresses was formed by the mage Philippa Eilhart and Triss Merigold was a founding member. She was also on King Foltest’s royal council. Triss will also be in the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
