The Witcher 3: Yennefer | History | Appearance | Character


«Feelings and the lack thereof… gifts that should not be accepted… lies and truth. What is right? To deny a lie? Or to state a fact? And if the fact is a lie, then what is truth? Who is so full of feelings that it tears them apart and who is a cold and empty shell of a skull? Who? What is right, Geralt? What is the truth?»

The universe of "the white-haired Witcher" is insanely interesting not only with a huge colorful world and a worked-out and extremely interesting plot, but also with beautiful characters, whose fate and role it is interesting to watch and empathize.

The love line in the game "The Wicther 3" does not carry a key role, but the choice between two beautiful sorcerers Yennefer and Triss is one of the most difficult choices for Geralt, as well as for the players themselves.

In this article, we will focus on Yennefer about the history of the beautiful sorcerer, who won the hearts of millions of players from around the World.


As certainly many known, Yennefer was born in 1173 year (on chronology book/s gaming Saga) in Kingdom Aedirn, and more precisely in its capital entitled "Vengerberg".

Her birthday fell on the annual kmet holiday Belleteyn or Flowering, which is widely celebrated in early May. To word, in day this holiday subsequently was born and Ciri.

This celebration has a certain magical component, as within eight days after the beginning of the festival significantly increases the magical aura.

Yennefer was born with a hunchback, which forced parents out of their own selfish motives, to give a little girl in a school of witches in the Arethusa. This decision became fateful and not only for fate Yennefer, but and for the entire World, so as enchanter not only has corrected most their external flaws, but and the most direct way participated in fate all kingdoms.

How the further history developed can be learned from the amazing books of Andrzej Sapkowski and the game "The Witcher", in order to avoid spoilers.


The Witcher 3: Yennefer - portrait

Employees of the company "CD Projekt Red", who created our favorite game masterpiece, did a tremendous job in adapting the characters and selecting models for scanning.

And to game vision of developers at fans of the universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, there were a minimum of claims of relativity of appearance of key characters that it is impossible to tell about the future caste of series.

The role of the model for scanning Yennefer was invited Polish model Klaudia Wróbel, with the Instagram page which can be found at this link.

As you can see, the appearance of Claudia is somewhat different from the final version of the game, which immediately catches the eye when viewing live photos of the model. This was done intentionally Paweł Mielniczuk, the company's art Director, who was responsible for creating the game models.

The developers decided to somewhat "cool" the game Yennefer, making it more arrogant and cold than the appearance of Klaudia Wróbel, to put more emphasis on the character of the sorcerer.

So, according to the story "The Last Wish", in which Geralt and Yennefer meet for the first time, the sorceress appeared before the Witcher as follows:

« A pale triangular face, violet eyes and narrow, slightly contorted lips appeared beneath the black tresses…»

«She had good shoulders and a beautiful neck, and on her neck was black velvet with a star-shaped, sparkling diamond ornament. The woman wore nothing but velvet…»

It is worth paying close attention to this story, as it explains a lot when passing the quest of the same name in the game "The Witcher 3".

So what do we and Geralt remember about the sorceress?

  • Chic black hair curled into shoulder-length curls;
  • Violet eyes;
  • Slim figure.

But, as Geralt himself notes, she is certainly attractive, but her appearance cannot be characterized as a stamp of classical beauty, since Yennefer has a slightly long nose, not prominent Breasts, a slightly sloping chin and narrow lips. Those who are familiar with the books know what it is linked to (mention above) of these, there are not flaws, but distinctive features of this beautiful sorceress.

Character, that's what makes Yennefer so desirable to Geralt. Her arrogance, cruelty and unscrupulousness, combined with love and kindness-this is the perfect balance that Geralt is looking for.

Yes, there is a beautiful in all respects Triss Merigold, but it is Yennefer who allow the Witcher to feel truly alive. In many ways, this applies to the history of the book, as in the game, players will have to decide which of the sorceresses will open his heart Geralt.

As known, many sorceress not can have children, in including and Yennefer, that imposes a certain imprint and on character, and on attitude to other. It is in his desire to correct this "defect of his body" that Yennefer uses Geralt in the story "The Last Wish", but things turned out differently....

Let me add a few words from myself. It is not difficult to guess, given the largely enthusiastic nature of this story about Yennefer, that the author of the article prefers her. Without further ADO, I will say that Yennefer is a favorite character in the entire universe, invented by Sapkowski.

But her sad fate, like the fate of Geralt
