Andrej Sapkowski’s vast universe of magic and monsters is brought to life on television in Netflix’s “The Witcher.” Some significant characters from the book are retained in the Netflix series, even if it plays with new timelines, characters, and narrative points. These characters are certain to become pivotal figures in the story as it progresses. We learn more about the Continent and its history through its spin-off, “The Witcher: Blood Origin,” which is set 1200 years before the events of the Henry Cavill-starring series. Characters like Avallac’h, who are predicted to have an impact on Ciri’s journey, are also introduced in the prequel series. What you need to know if you’re wondering if Avallac’h appears in “The Witcher” Season 3 Part 2. Spoilers follow.
Is Avallac’h in The Witcher Season 3?
In “The Witcher: Blood Origin,” Avallac’h is introduced to the audience as an inconspicuous elf mage who gains notoriety after saving Princess Merwyn’s life. Balor, a magician who tapped into the power of the Monoliths and utilised it to move between worlds, was also a part of the power grab, and she had been at its epicentre. Merwyn was aware that Balor was using her and that he would get rid of her once she ceased to serve his purposes. She then gets rid of him and provides Avallac’h his book so he can thoroughly research the Monoliths.
Merwyn desires interdimensional travel because she wishes to spread the Elven culture to other planets and instruct them in a better way of life. She suffers a terrible fate, however, and passes away due to the Conjunction of the Spheres and the opposition she faces from her own people. However, Avallac’h has already gained a lot of knowledge from Balor’s book. He is successful in escaping the battle that kills Merwyn and makes it through the gruesome climax. He is shown watching Ciri from a distance in the end credits scene while she is still a young child and blissfully unaware of the dangers that await her.
The fact that Avallac’h is present in Ciri’s timeline and seems to be interested in the Princess of Cintra indicates that this is not the last time we will see him. He will undoubtedly appear in the world of “The Witcher.” He does not, nevertheless, in Season 3, Part 1. The first five episodes of “The Witcher” Season 3 are devoted to Ciri’s training, with Geralt attempting to track down and assassinate Rience before the fire mage can possess Ciri. Five episodes are packed with events, leaving little room for the show to revisit Avallac’h and further explore his backstory.
We might see Avallac’h in the final five episodes of “The Witcher” Season 3 Part 2 when it debuts in July. Part 2 still has a lot of material to cover as seen by the Wild Hunt’s appearance in Season 3 and their beginning in Season 2 respectively. The Thanedd coup, which begins at the close of Part 1, sends shockwaves across the Continent and draws everyone into the conflict, which breaks out with full force. This implies that Avallac’h might not appear in the third season, although the show’s creators might have Samuel Blenkin (of “Black Mirror: Loch Henry”) make a brief appearance to imply that he will appear eventually.
In the books, Avallac’h is a cunning character whose motives for Ciri are never clear. He appears to be committed to defending her from all kinds of perils, including the Wild Hunt, and occasionally acts as if he is her buddy. At other times, he appears to be acting out of self-interest and isn’t afraid to put Ciri in a difficult situation. In the books, he was also portrayed as the elf who would wed Ciri’s ancestor Lara Dorren, who gave the Cintran princess her Hen Ichaer abilities.
It is predicted that the Netflix series, which is infamous for deviating from its inspirations, will alter Avallac’h’s character and plot in some way. The specifics of the character in the books remain up in the air as a result. His motivations may be altered to fit the plot of the show and the prequel series, which might make him a more nuanced character. Whatever the situation, you can be sure that Avallac’h will eventually play a big part in Ciri’s journey.
