The Witcher series’ Triss Merigold of Maribor, powerful, redheaded sorceress and friend, lover and ally to Geralt is brought to life by cosplayer Kalinka Fox in the following photoset.
“Along with me and the other witchers, Triss fought in defense of Kaer Morhen. The sorceress stood against the mysterious mage, one of the leaders of the assault. She was injured and lost consciousness. Ironically, Triss is allergic to magic and she can only be administered natural healing potions.
Triss Merigold is my friend. She saw me die and my return to the world of the living surprised her. Triss is a sorceress — one of the most influential and talented of her kind. She has numerous powerful friends, and she knows the Kaer Morhen witchers. She is one of the few people who know the way to the fortress. I have a feeling Triss likes me a lot.” — Journal entry from The Witcher
“I have known the sorceress Triss Merigold for a long time, for she is one of the Geralt’s closest friends. The young, pretty, talented, auburn-haired mage from Maribor hardly reminded me of the giggling flapper of years past. Her knowledge, abilities and loyalty had brought her far. A hero from Sodden, known as the Fourteenth of the Hill – for she was mistakenly counted as the fourteenth mage to die in that battle – she sat on the royal council of King Foltest of Temeria. And though they say that a monarch’s favor is uncertain – for the king had once expelled all mages from Temeria – Triss had managed to gain Foltest’s trust. As regards the witcher, everyone who was witness to Triss’ friendship with Geralt, anyone who saw them together, would easily confirm that these two had much in common… And it is common knowledge that an old flame never dies…” — Journal entry from The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
