The Witcher Plot

While the main character of the show is Geralt, The Witcher focuses on three different characters at different points in time. The first character of focus is Geralt of Rivia and most of the story revolves around him and his adventures.

The other two characters that story focuses on are Crown Princess Ciri and Sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg. The show jumps from one character to another and tells the things from each of their perspectives.

At the start of the season, each character gets their arc and their origin stories and what events led them to become what they are. With each episode, the character progresses in their quest and move forward. Though this happens in different timelines, it doesn’t remain so for a long time.

After some events, the story arcs of these three characters collide and form a single timeline. Then comes the main plot of the story that features Battle for Soden Hills which is fought by the heroes against the invaders of Nilfgaard.
