The Geralt of Rivia wiki last edited by fesak on 05/23/15 10:27AM View full history


Geralt was born in Rivia,he is the son of a sorceress called Visenna and a warrior called Korin. After birth he was taken by his mother to Kaer Morhen the witcher stronghold. There he underwent the Trial of Grass and suffered many mutations which gave him superhuman abilities, immunity to disease but also resulted in his infertility. This trial allowed him to become a witcher - an artificially created mutant, a monster-hunter devoid of emotion. At least, that last part is supposed to be true, too. He made his name removing the curse from Temerian princess Adda, and over the years became a legend in the Northern Kingdoms.
