As Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer attempt to defend what they value most, the third season of “The Witcher” on Netflix fanned the flames of chaos and violence across the Continent. They learn some shocking things about their adversaries and come to the conclusion that the threat was far closer to them than they had previously thought. Geralt and Yennefer must determine the identify of the enigmatic mage who appears to be at the heart of all the strife they encounter in light of the kidnapping of the girls in Aretuza and Rience, the rogue mage, pursuing after Ciri.
Unbeknownst to them, Lydia, a witch at Aretuza, is associated with Rience as well and is willing to comply with any requests made of them by their enigmatic lord. Even a severe injury to her face has not deterred Lydia from carrying out the plan since she is so committed to the cause. In the third season, she can be seen hiding behind a fake face and communicating using telepathy because she lacks the ability to talk. We can tell you what happened to Lydia if you’re interested. Spoilers follow.
Why Doesn’t Lydia Speak?
It was Lydia’s employer’s responsibility to free Rience from Cintra’s prison and send him on a mission to locate Ciri. Lydia served as a liaison between Rience and their employer and frequently helped the fire wizard by providing him with the tools he needed to locate Ciri. Despite being extremely strong and relentlessly following Ciri throughout the Continent, Rience runs upon Geralt, a formidable foe. Every time he gets close enough to Ciri, Geralt intervenes.
Rience eventually finds Geralt and Ciri in Kaer Morhen. He decides to be a little sneakier about it rather than confronting them directly. However, Geralt and Ciri have already left when he gets there. Rience meets Triss and Vesemir at Kaer Morhen. He assaults them, knocks Vesemir out cold, and grabs a vial of blood he is certain belongs to Ciri. He doesn’t know why Vesemir had it, though.
The rare purple flowers used to make the Witcher potion were first produced when Ciri got cut while practising and her blood dropped to the ground. Vesemir understands that the blossom is difficult to obtain and that Ciri’s blood might be the ingredient that is required. Ciri agrees to drink the elixir that he and Triss make using her blood, but Geralt dissuades her.
Vesemir considers breeding additional Witchers while holding the potion, but Triss cautions him that they are still learning too little about Ciri, her abilities, and the precise components of her blood that give it such formidable properties. The only vial of Ciri’s blood, which has been altered by the Witcher mutagen to make the potion, is taken by Rience during this exchange and she flees with it. Prior to using the blood to find Ciri, Triss and Rience are unaware of this.
By this point, it is common knowledge that Ciri is Hen Ichaer, which means that her tremendous powers come from the Elder Blood that flows through her veins. Her full range of skills hasn’t been put to the test yet because Ciri is presently more concerned with maintaining control over her abilities than with unleashing them unexpectedly on her adversaries. She learns how to control the Chaos within of her from Yennefer, who also serves as her teacher. That doesn’t change the fact that Ciri’s blood-based abilities are incredibly unpredictable. We don’t know how much Lydia knows about her employer’s goals, despite the fact that they have been working closely together. Although it appears as though her enigmatic boss is forcing her to do his bidding, he doesn’t actually trust her with crucial matters.
Ciri’s powers make it obvious that the master wants her, but he withheld information from Lydia. If not, she would have handled Ciri’s blood with a little bit more caution. In an effort to find Ciri, Lydia smells her blood, and when she does, her face becomes terribly burned. This could be due to the Elder Blood’s strength or the Witcher mutagen’s presence. She’s left dumbfounded, and half of it is gone. Because of this, Lydia remains silent and maintains the appearance of her face even after it is irreparably damaged.
