How well do you know Geralt of Rivia?
Geralt of Rivia is a man of great names and greater fame. If you’ve picked up a fantasy book, gaming controller, or a Netflix subscription in the last few years, you’ve probably heard of Geralt. Maybe you haven’t but would like to learn. Perhaps you think you possess the gold standard of White Wolf knowhow.
Either way, you’ve come to the right quiz. Your knowledge of Geralt’s history with women, appearances in media (especially the books and CD Projekt Red’s Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game adaptation), Geralt’s adventures, and his occupational hazards as a Witcher will all be tested. You’ll also need to know about other characters in the Witcher universe, like the sorceress Yennefer or the princess Ciri.
The Geralt gauntlet won’t prove as gruesome as the Trial of the Grasses, but if you run it, you’ll know if you’re a Geralt genius or simply the Boy/Girl Who Cried White Wolf!
Geralt of Rivia
Geralt of Rivia's bloodstained legacy stretches a vast, diverse landscape in the world of fiction and the often-stranger realm of humans' reality. The life Geralt of Rivia famously leads is a Witcher on the ambiguously named Path. Throughout his travels, Geralt uses his weaponry like a painter would a brush (though a little rougher at times). He impresses everyone from humans to guards to sorceresses like Yennefer.
The White Wolf's abilities include incredible fighting prowess as well as an incredible mastery of sarcasm. Geralt's mixture of brains and brawn attracts warriors and especially women (particularly of the sorceress variety) to his side. With plenty of company comes plenty of nicknames. Geralt is known as the White Wolf, Butcher of Blaviken, Ravix of Fourhorn, and Butcher of White Orchard. The name Geralt wanted to call himself was the far more complicated Geralt Roger Eric du Haute-Bellegarde, but his trainer Vesemir denied the ridiculous request.
Geralt leads eight books in the acclaimed Witcher series. He also leads a series of comic books, which includes volumes like Curse of Crows. He's accompanied by memorable characters like Princess Ciri and the sorceress Yennefer.
Success translates from publications to PlayStations. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (developed by CD Projekt Red) ranks among the top 20 best-selling video games of all time. Geralt's prowess as a pixelated protagonist opened opportunities for the character to make guest appearances in Soul Calibur and Monster Hunter World as well. Geralt's popularity seeps into Hollywood. Henry Cavill dropped the Superman cape to pick up two swords and play Geralt of Rivia on the Witcher Netflix series!
