Triss Merigold of Maribor was a legendary Temerian sorceress of the 13th century. Called Fourteenth of the Hill by her contemporaries because she was erroneously thought to have been killed during the Battle of Sodden Hill , she passed into history as Merigold the Fearless. A member of King Foltest 's royal council along with Fercart and Keira Metz , as well as a founding member of the Lodge of Sorceresses , she was involved in politics for most of her life. She was friends with Yennefer and the witcher Geralt of Rivia , but also unhappily in love with the latter.

After years of waiting for a high quality film or television adaptations, fans of The Witcher video games and novels seem to finally be getting their wish with the Netflix show. The Henry Cavill led Witcher adaptation is getting positive reviews from both critics and audiences and, despite some big differences from the books and games, the first season seems to be a very strong start. Triss is a fan-favorite character in the video game community thanks to her key roles in the first two Witcher games, so some of the changes to her character may not land well with fans who only know her from CD Projekt Red's adaptations. First, there is the matter of Triss' physical appearance. This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, since the casting was public knowledge months ago, but the Netflix series went with an actress who likely won't remind fans of the video game version of Triss. The first difference that some fans will likely notice is that video game Triss has light skin, blue eyes, and red hair, while Shaffer brings dark hair and brown eyes to the role. In the books, Triss has unspecified skin tones, but is described as having chestnut-red hair and cornflower blue eyes.
Near the merchants in the camp is a noblewoman sitting under a makeshift tent and, on talking to her, she'll ask for Geralt 's help as none of the soldiers there will tell her what happened to her son, Hrodeberth. When agreed to, she'll then suggest talking to the quartermaster, Tavar Eggebracht , so make your way over to talk to him. Whatever you choose, Eggebracht will then reveal that the boy and his group attempted to desert and some were caught and hanged while the others fled into the nearby swamps. However, he doesn't know if Hrodeberth was among those hanged or not. Head to the spot northwest of the House of Respite and once you enter the search area, use your Witcher Senses to find some tracks near a dead horse and examine both, then follow the tracks, where you'll come across a body to examine but it's not Hrodeberth.
He will ache even when flaccid. He would deserve that. We want to tease and frustrate him.
