They rode through another ravine and crested an oval hill. From there they could see the ruins of Kaer Morhen huddled against the cliffs up ahead - the partially demolished trapezoid of its outer defensive walls, the remains of its barbican and gateway, and its barrel-shaped keep, rising up like a stunted column. ~ ANDRZEJ SAPKOWSKI, BLOOD OF ELVES
Kaer Morhen; School of the Wolf The name is a corruption of the Elder Speech term Caer a'Muirehen, which means Old Sea Keep. It was named as such due to the presence of fossilized sea creatures embedded in the stones of which it was built. It is located in the mountains of the kingdom of Kaedwen, on the Gwenllech.
also known as Gwynbleidd, meaning “White Wolf” in Elder Speech, Geralt
is the son of the sorceress Visenna and, presumably, the warrior Korin. Shortly after his birth, Geralt was taken by his mother to the School of the Wolf at the stronghold of Kaer Morhen. There, Geralt was trained and made to be a witcher. He survived the many blistering mutations required to grant witchers their abilities, and passed the Trial of the Grasses. Geralt’s training and physical modifications provided him with superhuman physical and mental abilities, including heightened reflexes, increased speed, great strength, and enhanced hearing.
”You have any idea how she fights? The girl can take care of herself, believe me. Geralt, she’s no longer that little girl who ran around Kaer Morhen. Sure she’s still impulsive, alive, but she’s also stubborn and sulky. Heh, apple didn’t fall far from the tree, let me tell you.”
Hi my name Geralt Roger Eric du Haute-Bellegarde (Gwynbleidd) of Rivia and I have long milk-white hair (that’s how I got my name) and golden cat eyes like oriole tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Vesemir (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Iorveth but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I have pale white skin. I’m also a witcher, and I go to a fortress called Kaer Morhen amidst the peaks of the Blue Mountains in Kaedwen. I’m a master swordsman (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black armor. For example today I was wearing a black warrior’s leather jacket with silver studs around it and black trousers, black gauntlets, and black leather boots. I was wearing two swords on my back - one silver, one steel, and my special wolf medallion. I was walking outside Kaer Morhen. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of drowners stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.
