Yen is 98 and Geralt is 103. They are so much older than Triss. :P
First post gets it done
That's because she's a side character in the books.
I too would rather burn down a hedge maze than spend time in it it with the flat board of a personality that is Triss.
This is good.Yennefer:
- Headstrong and confident, understands the value in caring for yourself
- Ambitious, working towards goals, always learning and improving her skills
- Career driven, thinking of her future, good at networking
- Assertive, able to deal with Geralt's wishy washy flaky old grumpy Witcher shit directly with no ambiguity
- Genuine motherly, nurturing qualities to those she values as her children, such as Ciri
- Caring and loving, sensual and exciting, in private with her partner
- Draws from literally decades of personal experience, including a traumatic upbringing in poverty, to shape her view of the world and broad empathy for people
- Messy drunk
- Knows full well that Yennefer and Geralt are true lovers and takes advantage of Geralt's amnesia anyway to manipulate him into sex
- Has red hair
I find boring or disgusting the stories where the hero can have sex with any woman, because those women can't wait to have sex with him. In those stories women are the hero's prize, the warrior's reward, and as such they have nothing to say, they can only moan and faint in the hero's strong arms.
I am convinced that only with contact with the other sex - wether it is cause of attraction, care, confrontation or opposition - a hero can fully grow. When I created Yennefer's character I wanted Geralt to fully grow, but then I decided to make things complicated. I created a female character who refuses to be a fantasy stereotype.
