Definition of The Witcher

Surely you heard the term “The witcher” and you miss the curiosity … right ?. Luckily you have The Wan Shi Tong Library , where we will show you the meaning of The Witcher in Spanish, its origin and some other interesting facts about this term. Do we start?

Translated into Spanish, the meaning of The Witchter is “The sorcerer” but, this kind of sorcerer is not directly linked to witchcraft.

In the universe of the saga of “Geralt de rivia” a sorcerer is a mutant human who is dedicated to the profession of hunting monsters for money.

The term “The Witcher” comes from the Polish  Wiedźmin , originally  Wiedźmin was translated as “The Hexer”.

When the video game developer CD Projekt Red developed a video game about the franchise translated  Wiedźmin as “The Witcher”.

Within the saga of video games and novels, the “Witchers” were chemically enhanced human beings to gain human skills.

These improvements led to sorcerers receiving notable mutations in their body, such as loss of emotions and yellowish tone in their pupils.

The mutations caused skimming and rejection of the “Witchers” by ordinary people within their world.

Another Meaning of “The Witcher” could be a reference to the character Geralt de Rivia, the main protagonist of the saga.

Many people know Geralt de Rivia as “The Witcher” although he is not the only one of his kind in the play.

On December 20, 2019, North American producer Netflix premiered the streaming series “The Witcher,” starring Henry Cavill.
