The House of the Wolf – The Witcher 3
The Wolf faction of Witchers in the Witcher 3 almost perfectly sums up family. If not as a whole, then the relationship between Geralt and Ciri certainly does. In Geralt’s time of need, Vladimir and the rest of the Wolves group together to take on the Wild Hunt at Kaer Morhen.
For those who have played a majority of the Witcher 3’s story, you’ll also know that the Wolves know how to party, too. A hilarious combination of cut-scene and gameplay sees Geralt getting drunk with a couple of his old acquaintances at the castle and although Geralt and Lambert may not see eye-to-eye all the time, it’s obvious that they’re brothers at heart.
The relationship between the two of them is almost that of a pair of rivaling brothers that despite not always agreeing, acknowledge the others’ thoughts and feelings and put their differences to one side in a time of need. Geralt’s journey across the world on his quest to find Ciri almost epitomizes the perfect father figure. When his daughter is in trouble, he will stop at nothing to save her, fighting countless enemies, crossing harsh seas, and literally getting pulled from pillar to post by all manner of characters wanting something in return from Geralt for their help. If Geralt was our father, we know he’d have our back if we ran into any trouble, and with Vladimir as the wise old grandfather, we’d feel right at home in the Wolf House of Witchers.
