Ciri is an important playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Ciri, also known as the Child of Destiny, is typically thought of as a weapon with the power to obliterate her own world. Additionally, there are connections to her earlier years as Geralt’s apprentice. She is among the most powerful people in the world thanks to her training in the Witcher and her magical skills. The player will eventually be able to control her as the game develops.
The Princess of Cintra, Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, also known as Ciri, was born in Skellige of Belleteyn in the year 1252. Her parents are Pavetta and Emhyr var Emrei. Many people were unaware of the dynamics between her parents, but some claim that Pavetta loved Ciri very much and that it was impossible for her to be apart from her. Despite the rumours, Pavetta did not hesitate to send Ciri ashore covertly as the tiny family prepared to set sail from Skellige to Cintra, in contrast to Calanthe who preferred that they all stay together.
To escape the Law of Surprise, Calanthe first instructed her advisor Mousesack to kill Geralt. However, Ciri was born in Skellige in Belleteyn of the next year. Nobody objected to the queen, so Mousesack was prepared to leave; nevertheless, when he was called shortly after, Calanthe withdrew the order without explanation.
Ciri as the Princess of Cintra
Ciri was the sole heir to Cintra left when her mother passed away, thus Calanthe gave her granddaughter extra attention. Ciri’s nanny informed the young girl all about a white-haired Witcher, and that he’d one day come for her to be taken away to be taught as one as well, despite Calanthe’s attempts to protect her from learning about being a Child of Surprise and that she was destined to be a Witcher from birth. When Calanthe learned, she was horrified, but by that time, the seeds had already been planted, and Ciri had come to strongly feel it was her fate.
Ciri is one of the most loved characters in The Witcher. Her portrayal as a Witcher was appreciated by fans and critics.
