"Quelle beauté, pensa-t-il. Tout en elle respire la beauté. Et tout en elle est dangereux. Les couleurs qu’elle porte : ce contraste de noir et de blanc, le beau et l’effroi ; ses boucles naturellement noires comme les freux ; ses pommettes saillantes, marquées d’une ride se formant, lorsqu’elle juge bon de sourire, à la commissure de ses lèvres si menues et si pâles sous le rouge ; ses cils si parfaitement irréguliers lorsqu’elle essuie le mascara qui les met en valeur pendant le jour ; son nez si parfaitement trop long ; ses doigts, menus, si parfaitement nerveux, inquiets et doués ; sa taille dont la finesse et la délicatesse sont soulignées par une ceinture trop serrée ; ses jambes sveltes créées pour le mouvement sous sa jupe noire. Qu’elle est belle." Andrzej Sapkowski – L'Epée de la Providence Deux ans de bonheur avec mon @tenhakuphoto, qui me rend belle à la ville comme à la scène. Merci. Je t'aime <3 ~ "How ravishing she is, he thought. Everything about her is ravishing. And menacing. Those colors of hers; that contrast of black and white. Beauty and menace. Her raven-black, natural curls. Her cheekbones, pronounced, emphasising a wrinkle, which her smile – if she deigned to smile – created beside her mouth, wonderfully narrow and pale beneath her lipstick. Her eyebrows, wonderfully irregular, when she washed off the kohl that outlined them during the day. Her nose, exquisitely too long. Her delicate hands, wonderfully nervous, restless and adroit. Her waist, willowy and slender, emphasised by an excessively tightened belt. Slim legs, setting in motion the flowing shapes of her black skirt. Ravishing." Andrzej Sapkowski – Sword of Destiny Two years of happiness with my @tenhakuphoto , who makes me beautiful in the city as on stage. Thank you. I love you. <3 #witcher #witchercosplay #yennefer #yennefercosplay #cosplay #cosplayer #costume

Yennefer of Vengerberg is the true love of the Witcher Geralt of Rivia and a mother figure to Ciri. She was also an advisor to King Demavend of Aedirn although not a formal royal advisor.

In Sword of Destiny, Yennefer is described as “ravishing.”

“Everything about her is ravishing. And menacing. Those colors of hers; that contrast of black and white. Beauty and menace. Her raven-black, natural curls. Her cheekbones, pronounced, emphasising a wrinkle, which her smile – if she deigned to smile – created beside her mouth, wonderfully narrow and pale beneath her lipstick. Her eyebrows, wonderfully irregular, when she washed off the kohl that outlined them during the day. Her nose, exquisitely too long. Her delicate hands, wonderfully nervous, restless and adroit. Her waist, willowy and slender, emphasised by an excessively tightened belt. Slim legs, setting in motion the flowing shapes of her black skirt. Ravishing.”

While Yennefer is viewed as a stunning beauty, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, she was born a hunchback and also had elven blood on her mother’s side. Due to her deformity and her elven blood, her father physically and mentally abused her before leaving both her and her mother. After her father left, her mother also began to abuse her.  After becoming a student at Aretuza, Yennefer’s physical deformities were corrected with magic within her first year.

Yennefer is prominently portrayed in CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. She appears in the opening cinematic and flees the middle of a battle as Nilfgaard continues their conquest of the North.

She would eventually meet up with Geralt and take him to meet Emperor Emhyr var Emreis, who informs him that Ciri has returned to the world the Wild Hunt are attempting to capture her. The two would split up in an attempt to use conventional means to locate Cici. Yennefer would depart for Velen and Novigrad and eventually head to Skellige, where she would reunite with Geralt. The two would continue their search for Ciri throughout Skellige tracking down mages and witches for any clues to her whereabouts.

Yennefer is voiced by Denise Gough in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. She will be portrayed by Anya Chalotra in the upcoming Netflix series, and was previously portrayed by Grażyna Wolszczak in the 2001 film adaptation.
