Yennefer of Vengerberg was not born beautiful but rather, powerful. The budding mage was turned over to the Academy at Aretuza, where she was trained to become the most powerful sorceress the school would ever train. Yen’s innate power to harness chaos, doesn’t apply only to her magical abilities, but to the core of who she is as a person. Like Geralt, Yennefer has a survivor’s soul.

Perceived as ruthless and manipulative by many, the reality is, Yennefer insulates herself from the world so as not to be hurt and rejected the way she was by her parents. As the Continent grows volatile with palace intrigue and war, Yennefer’s connections to her friends and loved ones deepen, and Yennefer must learn to trust her friends and new family, allow herself to accept their love, and to rely on them as much as she relies on herself. Anya Chalotra, who plays Yennefer, adds, 'Yennefer is in a constant battle with herself. She is never satisfied, always striving for something else. She's vulnerable but courageous, fears both rejection and love.'
