Geralt also didn't believe she'd make a good mother. Yennefer explained that she wanted her choice to bear a child back. Geralt informed her that witchers can't have children either. They were made sterile because their lifestyle weren't suited for a child.
In fact, in the novels (and in the show) both Yennefer and Geralt are incapable of having biological children.
The enchanter explained to her that there's a price to pay: to be reborn, she would bear no more, and so he removed her reproductive organs. Later on in the series, Yennefer tried different methods to regain her fertility, such as attempting to obtain a dragon's egg, but to no success.
While watching The Witcher, Yennefer's storyline hits very close to home for me. In 2012, just a few short months after miscarrying my first child, I lost the ability to have children completely after having to have a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (the removal of one ovary and both fallopian tubes).
The enchantment that follows is essentially a form of torture, a brutal surgical procedure that comes at a significant cost. For it to work, Yennefer has to have her womb removed, meaning she will never bear children. *This is were we see Foltest and Adda as CHILDREN, confirming that we're most definitely in the past.
While it makes them powerful, the mutations also leave Witchers sterile and unable to have children which is why their most common way of recruiting trainees is through “the law of surprise,” a tradition they invoke when payment cannot be made, claiming something the person in their debt doesn't know they have.
Fans on Reddit believe Geralt found a kindred spirit in Yennefer before the events of the djinn. “Geralt sees this woman that can easily be independent without him, but at the same time care deeply about something which he does as well (a.k.a. Ciri's well being), so he is drawn to these characteristics,” said one fan.
After Geralt's father, the warrior Korin, was killed by vrans before he was born, his mother Visenna had difficulties raising him on her own. A freelancing mage (much like Yennefer), she left him with Vesemir and the witchers, hoping his life would have meaning since they were desperate for students.
Elves live much longer than humans and they believe they were created, unlike humans who evolved, so they see humans as inferior to them. The physiology of elves, then, is very different from those of humans, and even though they live long lives, they are only fertile while they're young.
Since Ciri never underwent the witcher mutations, she's very much fertile and can bear children.
As she tried to quickly remove the queen's jewelry, the assassin found them again, and his krallach lunged at Yennefer. She slowed it down long enough for Kalis, the baby, and herself to escape through yet another portal to a rocky mountain top.
however Did Geralt impregnate Pavetta? After assisting Duny, the knight offers Geralt a reward. Much to the shock of those in the room, Geralt claims the Law of Surprise, leading him to claim Pavetta and Duny's unborn child. Despite being invoked twice, the Netflix show never defines the Law of Surprise.
The demon, better known as Voleth Meir, had spent the season manipulating the Witcher's foes from behind-the-scenes – even causing Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) to betray Geralt in an attempt to sacrifice Ciri.
Yes, Ciri is Geralt's destiny and we have seen in books and game that they are important for each of them, but there is also Ciri and Yennefer. Yennefer, whose most desire wish was to have a child, got it in the form of Ciri. It was her child, she called her daughter and Ciri called her mother (or even mommy).
The Witcher season 2 presented a shock when it was revealed that not only was Ciri's father still alive, he was the notorious White Flame and was responsible for the death of the unborn Elven baby.
Part of the reason that Yennefer is so powerful is because she is of elven blood. Elves in the world of The Witcher essentially "invented" magic as it is known in the world, later teaching it to humanity after the Conjunction of the Spheres.
Elves believe that they were created, unlike humans who evolved, so they consider humans to be inferior and constantly look down upon them. They arrived on the Continent from another world through a portal and colonized much of it, and while it was mostly through peaceful means, they did clash with other races.
Geralt exhibited great tolerance to mutagens that grant Witchers their abilities, especially in the Trial of the Grasses. As a result, he was put through further experiments that caused him to lose all pigmentation in his body, turning his skin and hair pale white.
Despite their strikingly similar blond locks, Ciri and Geralt aren't biologically related. The Law of Surprise is more about destiny than it is magic, so it doesn't have the power to change who a child surprise's biological parents are.
In the books, Geralt chose the name Geralt Roger Eric du Haute-Bellegarde, but his trainer Vesemir felt the name was too silly and only Geralt stuck.
Istredd was a sorcerer who was romantically involved with Yennefer during their time at Aretuza.
Sadly, Yennefer was left fuming and believed she didn't love Geralt and it was simply the djinn's magic which was behind it. Yennefer is said to be Geralt's true love, so it would suggest their feelings are genuine. Saying this, their romance will be a tumultuous one throughout The Witcher stories.
Ciri, when she is in the woods with the young girl, says she learned how to fight from her father, Geralt. Geralt, in turn, views Ciri as his daughter, as does Yennefer. … [Geralt and Ciri] are not lovers, nor are they in love with each other.”
Geralt's eyes turn “dark” as a side-effect to consuming a Witcher potion. These potions are numerous, each conferring powers that aid a Witcher during his or her fight against monsters.
Geralt wished to die alongside Yennefer. Since a djinn can't kill its own master, this wish would provide a nice loophole that would save Yennefer's life and also ensure that Geralt and Yennefer's lives are bound together until their very ends.
