Netflix will introduce a large number of new fans to the world of The Witcher later this year, but for those unfamiliar with games or books, the concept of Witcher may not be completely clear. Henry Cavill will bring Witcher, known as Geralt, to life in this highly anticipated series, and has recently been on the panel alongside Lauren S. Hissrich, Yennefer actress Anya Chalotra and Ciri actress Freya Allan at San Diego Comic-Con. ComicBook.com was on the panel, where Cavill gave a perfect and succinct overview of what a Witcher is, starting with the chance that someone who goes through the ordeal will survive.
"Most of these kids don't survive, like 1 in 10," Cavill said. "They travel the world hunting for monsters for money, and that is their sole purpose, but they are often rejected by the world because they should not have emotions ... but ultimately they should be a bunch of wicked ones who kill monsters."
Hardly anyone could explain it better than him, but he also clarified the lack of Witcher's emotions, describing it more as a choice rather than something they absolutely must live with.
"It's not that the Witchers don't have to make moral decisions, it's a myth that they don't have emotions, but that's what drives them when they ask for money for monsters, and if they don't have feelings, they can negotiate as much as they want and someone can't use the line 'my kids ',' Cavill said. "Geralt is much more than that. He has this hard exterior because he believes he is the way the world is, but the truth is that deep down there is this man who believes in what the world can be like. ”
The official synopsis of The Witcher series can be found below.
"Witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often turn out to be more sinister than the monsters themselves." Daniel and Jason Brown reveal a little more, showing that the series follows an unconventional family who "come together to fight for truth in a dangerous world."
