Who is Fjall in The Witcher Blood Origin?
Fjall is a mighty elven warrior, and a member of dog clan who serves as a protector to the royal household in Xin’trea. He was raised as a warrior first and foremost, and taught to be obedient and follow orders, however he has an illicit romance with the princess Merwyn, and when this is discovered he is stripped of his duties and banished from the kingdom into exile.
On his travels in exile, Fjall meets Eile who is a musician and warrior from a rival clan called raven clan. They have a frosty reception at first, with neither trusting the other. Eventually, they join forces to return to Xin’trea to discover what is happening back at the city where Merwyn has become the new emperor.
Along the way, Fjall meets other warriors who he joins forces with and as the story progresses, Fjall becomes increasingly romantically involved with Eile. The pair develop deep feelings for each other, and when Eile decides to take a dangerous potion to enhance her physiology, Fjall secretly takes it instead inadvertently becoming the first Witcher.
