  • The Witcher as an Uratha

    Watching the TV show on Netflix and playing the game, I get a feeling that Geralt of Rivia would be a great idea for an Uratha. Here are my thoughts

    He is a loner hunting down monsters by himself. Probably a Storm Lord. Most Monsters look pretty hideous so they are probably monstrous Claimed.

    He has a silver sword just in case he needs to hunt other Uratha like himself.

    He has a "pack", Dandelion would be a human and Yennifer would be a mage. Again, he is mostly a loner because he is a Storm Lord and does not seem to show any weakness.

    He utilizes the bans and banes of his prey quite extensively.

    It seems like a fairly good fit. He shows a great deal of restraint so he would probably stay in his human and Dalu forms the most so he could use his cunning to beat his prey rather than using his rage.

    Totally, there's also the super senses. A lot of it is explained in world by alchemy and genetic alterations, but he's the 'White Wolf,' and even werewolves use alchemy and talens.

      I love it!!! Or maybe a Ghost Wolf who doesn’t know his heritage.

        Regarding crossovers, the final episode has an excellent Mage on Mage battle.

          I would say he is a ghost wolf though. Storm Lords gather into packs as much as every other tribe. It's not admitting weakness, its smart

          EDIT: surprised I got a like. Thought I was being g a but pretentious there.

                Maybe Rahu?

                  That's probably the best answer. MAYBE Elodoth instead. But Rahu is what I best imagine.

                    Side note: First reading about Dandelion I was 'urgh, who is it in Witcher franchise? I did not remember anyone from saga I read 20 years ago'. And then I checked wikia and it seems that original in Polish bard Jaskier ( named after Ranaculus plant ) is translated in English as Dandelion ( i.e. Taraxacum ). Hmmm....

                        He seems pretty clearly an Irraka Talon to me. Like the OP said, he uses cunning to beat his prey.

                          For some reason, I can also think of him as an Ithaeur since he is very knowledgeable about banes and bans. However, he is well invested in combat abilities.

                            Tbh, there's a point at which you're honestly just describing a Generic Witcher being a Generic Urdaga.
