Geralt of Rivia
A man that goes by many names, and the main character of the series, Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher belonging to the school of the Wolf.
No matter what school a Witcher belongs to, their sole job is to rid the world of the monsters and demons that were brought about by the Conjunction of Spheres. Geralt is no different.
Like each other member of his dwindling kind, Geralt didn’t choose this life though but was instead offered up as a child to the Witchers. As he grew, he was subjected to alchemic and mutagenic trials that enhanced his abilities, but also dulled his emotions.
