The childhood of Geralt de Riv in The Witcher

The son of the magician, druid and healer Visenna, and knight Korin, Geralt was sent from a very young age to Kaer Morhen (a former fortress and wolf school) to become a witcher by following Vesemir's training. He will quickly acquire almost superhuman physical and mental abilities by submitting to the herbal test of ingesting special alchemic ingredients (only four to ten apprentices would survive the many mutations). The white color of Geralt's hair would be a consequence of this famous test for young witch apprentices. After years of learning, Geralt of Riv go on an adventure to become a hitman of monsters and sell his services to the highest bidder.
