Yes I know, another Witcher character. But when the games have so many well written and layered people in their universe, it’s difficult not to put them in my list. This fiery, redheaded sorceress captured my attention when I played the second game, and The Wild Hunt further proved just how great a character she is. Depending on your choices, she can be a love interest for Geralt instead of Yennefer, and how could you not choose her the first time round.
In many ways, Triss is the complete opposite to Yennefer. She is much more sympathetic to those around her in need, especially those of her own kind, which we see in her arc in the third game. She is also incredibly courageous, sacrificing herself to be tortured if it means helping in the mission to save others. While on the surface, she appears to be a kind and warm person, she can be fierce when she needs to be, using her strength in magic to protect herself and others as well as start the fights should the need arise.
Triss is also incredibly loyal depending on the choices you make regarding her. She will come to help defend Ciri in the battle at Kaer Mohren, using her powerful abilities to rain fore down on the enemies. She also isn’t afraid to tap into her darker side in certain situations if it means helping her in her mission to save her fellow mages in Novigrad. Her relationship with Geralt is also a highlight, as well as being almost like a big sister to Ciri. While I still like Yennefer as a character, because I played the second game I already had grown attached to her before The Wild Hunt came out. It’s also because I find Triss much more likeable as well, whilst still having that fierce side compared to a mostly cold exterior from Yen.
