Witcher characters confirmed for Netflix series

Though still in the early stages of development for the streaming service, Netflix‘s The Witcher series writer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has taken to Twitter to confirm that the first draft of the pilot script is complete. In addition, Hissrich offered a detailed breakdown of each of the characters fans can expect to find in the series. They include:

GERALT IS: Stoic. Circumspect. Balanced. Fierce. Soft-and-squishy-in-a-tiny-place-in-his-heart-that-he’ll-never-reveal-until-maybe-the-end-and-even-then-it-will-just-be-a-hint

YENNEFER IS: Fiery. Proud. Shrewd. Contradictory. Seeking-to-fill-a-family-sized-hole-in-her-heart-even-though-she-resents-it-and-swears-she’s-just-fine-on-her-own-but-she-is-not-and-we-love-her-for-being-both-independent-and-vulnerable.

CIRI IS:Resilient. Relentless. Brazen. Growing. She’s-going-to-change-the-world-and-what-the-hell-is-she-supposed-to-do-except-be-scared-and-be-bold-and-learn-and-adapt-and-find-a-family-who-can-walk-by-her-side-no-matter-what-and-maybe-just-maybe-teach-her-the-meaning-of-love.

ROACH IS: Ladylike. Faithful. Extrasensory. Steady. Really-annoyed-with-this-game-because-we-can’t-pretend-all-Roaches-are-the-same-so-she’d-prefer-some-singularity-and-individual-recognition-instead-of-all-being-lumped-together-by-blatantly-horsist-people.

JASKIER (!) IS: Extravagant. Caddish. Loose-lipped. Loyal. Hides-behind-the-exterior-of-an-idiot-when-in-actuality-he-is-the-keeper-of-Geralt’s-realities-(even-if-he-exaggerates-his-own-heroics)-AND-the-truths-of-the-world-which-means-he’s-far-more-important-than-we-realize…

TRISS MERIGOLD IS: Spunky. Idealistic. Insecure. Conflicted. Young-and-naive-and-lacking-the-confidence-of-sorceresses-which-means-she-is-ripe-for-manipulation-but-when-she-finally-transcends-the-crap-she-has-a-chance-to-be-loved-as-herself-and-not-as-“the-third-wheel-with-Yen”

CAHIR IS: Conflicted. Charismatic. Haunted. Pure of heart. Despite-being-young-he’s-like-a-relic-of-a-simpler-time-when-knights-in-shining-armor-always-won-the-girl-but-now-in-the-face-of-harsh-reality-he-must-learn-what-it-means-to-actually-be-heroic-and-brave-for-others.

REGIS IS: Eloquent. Ensconced. Worldly. Haunted. The-worst-of-the-worst-who-transforms-into-the-best-of-the-best-or-at-least-he-strives-to-be-and-it’s-the-most-incredible-journey-to-watch-as-an-evil-addicted-monster-becomes-the-essence-of-“humanity-personified”-in-the-hansa.

VILGEFORTZ IS: Mercenary. Conspiratorial. Power-hungry. Ruthless. Handsome-as-all-get-out-which-is-important-because-(as-Geralt-says-“one-could-expect-anything-from-a-man-looking-like-this”)-he-is-the-essence-of-evil-hidden-behind-beauty-which-makes-him-very-very-dangerous.

EMHYR IS: Imperialistic. Ruthless. Monarchical. Masquerader. Above-all-he’s-a-survivor-having-spent-most-his-life-running-and-pretending-so-it’s-no-wonder-he-craves-power-because-what’s-more-stable-than-being-on-top-(and-what’s-better-than-a-villain-whose-head-you-kinda-get.)

MILVA IS: Saucy. Savage. Conciliatory. Commonsense. The-epitome-of-the-novels’-shades-of-grey-who-embodies-unrequited-romance-and-also-unbelievable-strength-and-also-the-skills-to-kill-and-also-the-ability-to-crusade-for-peace-and-also-and-also-and-also.

LEO BONHART IS: Sadistic. Ghoulish. Ruthlessly efficient. Hedonistic. His-depth-lies-in-his-lack-of-depth-because-we-keep-searching-for-reason-or-redemption-and-in-fact-there-is-none-just-a-cold-brutal-soul-who-desires-to-be-colder-and-what’s-more-terrifying-than-that?

BORCH THREE JACKDAWS/VILLENTRETENMERTH IS: Perceptive. Protective. Merciful.The most beautiful. An-observer/-philosopher/-seeker-of-freedom-which-means-he-didn’t-kill-just-because-he-could-but-rather-sought-to-understand-why-others-wanted-to-kill-him-which-is-EVERYTHING.

ANGOULÊME IS:Sharp. (Anything but) Simple. A phoenix from the flames. The missing piece. Determined-to-survive-the-shit-despite-never-being-given-the-tools-to-do-so-and-found-a-family-where-she-least-expected-but-also-found-what-it-meant-to-be-loyal-to-someone-other-than-herself

YARPEN ZIGRIN IS: Fiesty. Fierce. Wise. A diplomat of the highest order. His-gruff-demeanor-and-crude-language-belies-an-intelligent-soul-who-has-his-finger-on-the-pulse-of-the-Continent’s-complicated-landscape-and-who’s-well-on-his-way-to-a-life-in-politics-VOTE-FOR-YARPEN!
