Ela é amiga de Yennefer e do Witcher geralt de Rivia, e tentou um romance com Geralt mas acabou não dando certo. Triss cuidou de Ciri em kaer Morhen algumas vezes e por causa disso Ciri a considera como uma irmão mais velha. Foi através de um intervenção de Triss que Ciri não foi sujeita a um intenvenção de hormonios que poderia ser prejudicial a ela enquanto ela treinava em Maer Morhen, o que privaria Ciri de seus atributos secundarios de sua feminilidade.
Triss Merigold de Maribor foi uma lendária feiticeira Temeriana do 13° século. Tambem chamada de “A décima quarta do monte” por seus compatriotas porque ela foi erroneamente tratada como morta durante a batalha do monte Sodden, depois de descoberta a sua sobrevivencia ela ficou conhecida como; Merigold a Destemida. Ela é um membro do conselho real do rei Foltest assim como Fercart e keira Metz, tambem é uma membro fundadora da Estada das feiticeiras, ela é envolvida com politica em praticamente todo o seu tempo de vida.
Triss é uma hábil curandeira e carrega com ela diversas poções magias, mas ela nunca as usa em si mesma porque ironicamente, ela é alergica a poções mágicas. Ela tambem é uma poderosa Feiticeira. Ela porta um amuleto caracteristico – feito de safira revestida com prata.
Não! Eu não cederei e não serei influenciada! Eu sou a “décima quarta do monte”! Eu não sou mais uma menina assustada de uma escura Torre de Maribor …

TRISS MERIGOLD – THE WITCHER
Triss é um dos personagens centrais no jogo “The Witcher”. Ela é uma das primeiras pessoas que Geralt conhece depois de ser encontrado inconsciente na floresta pelos seus companheiros Witchers.
Ela também é a enfermeira que ajuda Geralt a ter sua saúde de volta depois de sua primeira batalha com Azar Javed no pântano. Uma vez que Geralt recupera a consciência, ele se encontra no quarto de sua luxuosa casa no Distrito dos mercadores, e ele a vê conversando com outra pessoa, provavelmente outra feiticeira. Ela diligentemente vai “analisa-lo para ver se não existem lesões internas
Junto comigo e com os outros bruxos, Triss lutou em defesa de Kaer Morhen. A feiticeira enfrentou o misterioso mago, um dos líderes do ataque. Ela ficou ferida e perdeu a consciência.
Ironicamente, Triss é alérgica a poções mágicas e só pode receber poções naturais de cura. Triss Merigold é minha amiga. Ela me viu morrer e meu retorno ao mundo dos vivos a surpreendeu. Triss é uma feiticeira – uma das mais influentes e talentosas da sua espécie. Ela tem vários amigos poderosos e conhece os bruxos de Kaer Morhen. Ela é uma das poucas pessoas que conhecem o caminho para a fortaleza. Tenho a sensação de que Triss gosta muito de mim. Depois do funeral de Leo, a feiticeira se teletransportou para Vizima.
Ela decidiu usar seus extensos contatos e procurar informações sobre Salamandra. Triss prometeu me encontrar assim que chegar em Vizima. Triss me encontrou no pântano, onde fiquei inconsciente depois do confronto com Azar Javed. Ela me transportou para sua casa no bairro comercial e cuidou de mim até eu ficar consciente. Deitada acordada, ouvi Triss fofocar com uma amiga no comunicador mágico, e agora sei que outras feiticeiras também estão interessadas em Salamandra.
Se Geralt deixa Alvin com Shani: deixei Alvin aos cuidados de Shani. A Triss decidiu não confiarise nela e que prefiro o médico. Ela está com raiva de mim e parece que o nosso caso acabou.
Se Geralt deixa Alvin com Triss: Concluí que seria melhor deixar Alvin aos cuidados de Triss. Ela viu a minha escolha como prova da minha confiança. Ela decidiu que eu gostava mais dela do que de Shani, o que só melhorou nossa relação. Dandelion entregou uma carta de Triss. A feiticeira me pediu para cuidar bem do Alvin. Ela também está preocupada comigo – ela espera que possamos ter um relacionamento estável e criar Alvin juntos quando eu completar minha missão. Eu respondi a carta de Triss e expliquei meus sentimentos. Após o retorno de Foltest a Vizima, Triss caiu em desgraça – o monarca não aprovou seu esquema politico. A feiticeira é praticamente uma refém no Palácio Real e seu destino está em minhas mãos.
Triss se juntou a mim durante o ataque à Mansão Velha. Como amiga, ela me ajuda na minha busca. Eu acho que ela busca vingança em Azar Javed por seu duelo mágico em Kaer Morhen. Eu conheci Triss, ou melhor, uma visão dela, nas planícies de gelo. A feiticeira me ajudou a perseguir o Grão-Mestre.
Durante o prólogo, depois de lidar com a invasão do Salamandra em Kaer Morhen, Triss está gravemente ferida e precisa de uma poção especial que Geralt deve preparar para ajudá-la a se recuperar. Se não for apressada durante o diálogo, depois de beber a poção, ela oferece a Geralt seu primeiro encontro sexual do jogo.
Se foi Triss e não Shani que foi escolhida para cuidar de Alvin, a segunda opção de romance estará disponível se ela receber um anel de rubi, e em relação a Alvin, Geralt deve ser rigoroso pelo menos uma vez.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
Triss desempenha um papel importante em toda a história. Ela aparece pela primeira vez no prólogo como amante de Geralt; seus sentimentos por ele evidentemente permaneceram inalterados. Triss assiste Geralt e Foltest no castelo de La Valette. Ela se separa deles quando um dragão ataca as forças de Foltest. Depois que Geralt é preso pelo assassinato de Foltest, ela se encontra com ele e Vernon Roche antes de partirem para Flotsam, tendo perdido sua posição como conselheira após a morte de Foltest.
Em Flotsam, ela se encontra com a colega Sile de Tansarville e suspeita de sua presença. Ela ajuda Geralt a preparar-se para lutar contra um Kayran, apresentando-o a Cedric, encontrando o covil dos Kayran e ajudando-o a criar uma poção que permita a Geralt resistir ao veneno da besta. Depois que Geralt encontra Letho, Triss e Cedric entram no quarto de Síle e Triss usa o megascopio para tentar obter mais informações sobre Síle (falando com Dethmold ou Philippa). Pouco depois, Letho seqüestra Triss e força-a a se teleportar para Vergen.
Em Vergen, Triss foge de Letho e tenta fazer contato com Philippa. Ela encontra o quarto de Philippa, mas em vez disso, encontra a aprendiz de Philippa, Cynthia. Cynthia, uma espiã nilfgaardiana, captura Triss usando a magia compressão em artefato, e contrabandeia Triss através da névoa de fantasmas, onde Triss finalmente chega às mãos do embaixador de Nilfgaard, Shilard Fitz-Oesterlen. Antes que Geralt possa resgatá-la, Shilard a leva em seu navio com destino em Loc Muinne.
Em Loc Muinne, Shilard encomenda a ajuda de Assire var Anahid para descomprimir Triss. Triss é contida e interrogada para mais informações da Estada. Se Geralt escolher não salvá-la, em favor de ajudar Roche ou Iorveth, um massacre irromperá em Loc Muinne, com forças opostas lutando não apenas uma contra a outra, mas também magos depois que Nilfgaard revelou o envolvimento da Estada com os regicidas do norte. No caos, Letho salva Triss do acampamento Nilfgaardiano e a leva para o campo Temeriano, agora abandonado, e a protege até que Geralt chega, depois de lutar contra o dragão. Assim que Geralt chega ao acampamento, Triss se afasta enquanto os dois bruxos conversam.
Se Geralt escolher resgatar Triss, ele invade o campo de Nifgaard e, eventualmente, a encontra presa e pergunta a ela sobre a Estada e sua influência por trás dos assassinatos de Demavend e Foltest. Quando Geralt e Triss vão para o anfiteatro, Triss revela o papel de Síle nos assassinatos, permitindo a Carduin rejeitar Síle de se juntar ao reformado Conclave de Magos. Triss e Geralt são separados novamente quando Geralt vai lutar contra o dragão, e eles se encontram pouco depois, onde Triss diz a Geralt que Letho está esperando por ele. A caminho de Letho, Triss explica que os magos ajudaram a evitar mais derramamento de sangue na cidade. Independentemente de Geralt resgatá-la ou não, depois que Geralt confronta Letho, ele deixa Loc Muinne com Triss (e talvez com Roche ou Iorveth).
Triss é a opção de romance padrão – o jogo começa com ela e Geralt já em um relacionamento. Uma das três cenas de abertura da história de Geralt durante o prólogo mostra-o levantando-se enquanto Triss se encontra nua ao lado dele enquanto um mensageiro entra em sua tenda para chamar o bruxo para falar com o rei Foltest.
A primeira oportunidade real surge perto do final do capítulo I durante a missão “The Rose of Remembrance”. Quando lhe é dada a opção de ir aos banhos élficos, Geralt pode escolher levar a feiticeira junto com ele. Depois de uma batalha na metade da missão, o chão sob seus pés desmorona, fazendo com que os dois caiam em antigos banhos élficos. Observando que uma fuga imediata é impossível, os dois podem tirar proveito de sua localização. Selecionando as opções de conversação corretas iniciará uma cena, na qual Triss tira a roupa completamente com magia e pula na água. Nosso Witcher logo se junta a ela no banho. Depois que os amantes desfrutaram um do outro o bastante, Triss comenta este curto período de felicidade de tal maneira: “Nós devemos fazer caminhadas com mais frequência. Por um tempo, eu esqueci tudo sobre o Flotsam, o Scoia’tael, o Kingslayer, todo mundo realmente … “.
Conheço a feiticeira Triss Merigold há muito tempo, pois ela é uma das amigas mais próximas de Geralt. A jovem maga, linda, talentosa e de cabelos ruivos de Maribor quase não me lembrava do riso de anos passados. Seu conhecimento, habilidades e lealdade a trouxeram longe. Um herói de Sodden, conhecida como a Décima Quarta do Monte – pois ela foi erroneamente contada como a décima quarta maga a morrer naquela batalha – ela se sentou no conselho real do Rei Foltest de Temeria. E embora digam que o favor de um monarca é incerto – pois o rei uma vez expulsou todos os magos de Temeria – Triss conseguiu ganhar a confiança de Foltest.
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…For those reasons, after Foltest’s death the sorceress decided that she would help the witcher most by staying by his side. Not heeding her threatened position at court, she harnessed all her strength and powers to helping Geralt, whom she still had feelings to.I was not there at the time, but I heard tales of the show of power Triss put on at that beach near Flotsam. Though she was weakened and barely conscious, the sorceress managed to sustain a magical barrier and the three survived the Scoia’tael arrows thanks to her.Nobody was surprised that Triss knew Sile de Tansarville. A more attentive observer would certainly have noticed the chill in their greetings, as well as Triss’ evident dislike of her elder colleague.
If Geralt agrees to forget about chasing the king slayer:The sorceress’ greatest desire was to be the one and only woman in Geralt’s life, and to forget about all the troubles and dangers they had recently experienced. Geralt agreed to her proposal, but before they could act, Fate showed them how hard it can be to carry out such romantic plans.
If Geralt decides he must continue chasing the king’s slayer:The sorceress’ greatest desire was to be the one and only woman in Geralt’s life, and to forget about all the troubles and dangers they had recently experienced. Geralt was close to agreeing to her proposal, yet he knew that it would be impossible to lead a quiet life until he could clear his name. His decision saddened Triss, but the sorceress understood.Triss was kidnapped by Letho. Geralt and I feared what he might do to her. Believe me, it was eating me alive, making rest impossible.Searching Sile’s quarters and talking to her neighbor brought more questions than answers. It appeared that Triss had known the woman she had talked to, but the fragments of the conversation recounted to us remained mysterious.Triss had reached Aedirn – there was evidence to prove it. Finding her would prove difficult, however.
If Geralt chooses Iorveth‘s path and helps Philippa in order to lift a curse from Saskia instead of rescuing Triss:In Aedirn, the search for Triss ended with the discovery of a bitter truth – transformed into a nephrite figurine, she had ironically been in the possession of an oblivious Geralt for a time and he had brought her straight to the Nilfgaardian camp. The Nilfgaardian emissary envisioned a special part for her in Loc Muinne…
If Geralt chooses Roche‘s path and rescues Anais La Valette instead of Triss:In the end the sorceress was freed by a witcher, yet it was not Geralt. Thanks to Letho she escaped unharmed, but I am sure she would be glad to forget the time she spent in Nilfgaardian captivity. Thus were the lovers reunited among the ruins of Loc Muinne after their long parting, and the story of Triss Merigold’s kidnapping ended.
If Geralt rescues Triss instead of Anais La Valette or Philippa:Yet the witcher foiled this plan, wrestling Triss from Nilfgaardian hands. I described the story’s finale in one of my ballads, omitting the carnage Geralt wrought there, however. For his part, he thinks that my version, with its colorful description of a mounted pursuit of Renuald aep Matsen, a limp sorceress trundled across his saddle, is too pretentious. Witchers…no sense of licentia poetica at all.Triss had one more part to play, and a significant one at that. Thanks to her, De Tansarville’s machinations were publicly revealed. The scene – now known as “Triss Merigold accuses the Lone Witch of Kovir” – passed into history and presently is one of the more common motifs in contemporary painting.The testimony Shilard extracted from Triss was used to accuse the sorcerers. In this way Miss Merigold contributed involuntarily to a witch-hunt greater than any before it.
Developer comments Edit
|Sorceress Triss Merigold, Geralt’s friend and former lover, is one of the most important supporting characters in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. She accompanies our hero during his travels, and the choices the player will make concerning her will heavily influence the story.
“If Triss Marigold couldn’t be my girlfriend, I’d like her to at least be my sister” – this phrase may be humorous, but it still gives a good impression of the effect we wanted to get when working on the sorceress’ new appearance. Triss’s appearance changed the most of all characters we met in the first game. Her new clothes were to be equally elegant, functional, and comfortable for traveling.
We based them on a 15th-century doublet. Its skin-tight cut underlines the sorceress’ shapely figure perfectly, especially when coupled with trousers and high topped boots. The male clothing, fingerless leather gloves and pinned up hair make her stand out among other women, and turn her into a “tomboy”. Triss’ personality has changed too. She’s no longer the girl from the novels known to “giggle like a flapper”. Now she’s a decisive, brave woman. She knows what she wants and she won’t hesitate to take risks in order to get it. Her new appearance is also a reflection of this change. One can openly admit that Triss grew up and is more mature, though she has lost none of her personal charm and grace.
|– pg. 124, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings|
Triss returns in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as the leader of the mage underground due to the witch hunt begun by Radovid V. Her appearance did not change much but interactions with Yennefer prove quite interesting. There is also a free DLC which gives Triss an alternative outfit.
After the events at Loc Muinne Triss and Geralt (who had now regained his memory) separated. Triss decided to go to Novigrad, which many mages believed to be a safe haven, and set up a shop in the city center. The Eternal Fire religion in the city, however, declared all mages to be witches and traitors and began arresting and murdering them.
Triss was forced to seek the protection of The King of Beggars to whom she paid 80% of her earnings whilst attempting to gain enough money to escape the city with her fellow mages. Geralt, upon arriving at the city, found Triss with the King of Beggars and assisted her ridding a rat infested mill. The Mill owner, however, sold her out to the witch hunters, and if not for the efforts of Geralt, Triss would have been captured.
Triss accompanies Sigismund Dijkstra to Margrave Henckel’s house to meet with Geralt, who was searching for Dijkstra’s lost treasure; Triss agreed to stick her neck out in exchange for Dijkstra’s financial aid in smuggling the mages out of Novigrad. After Geralt told Dijkstra that Caleb Menge, the leader of the witch hunters, had his treasure, and after the ex-spy had left, the witcher informed Triss that Menge had Dandelion imprisoned. To find Ciri, Triss then helped Geralt discover the location of Dandelion by allowing herself to be taken to the witch hunters and tortured whilst Geralt gained the information. Ultimately she kills her torturers before killing Menge.
If Geralt assists Triss in spiriting all the mages under her wing to Kovir, it results in the witch hunters targeting nonhumans. Helping Triss ensures she goes to Kaer Morhen to fight the Wild Hunt. Before the Hunt’s attack, she is happily reunited with Ciri, whom she provides with a magical stone that will call down a fireball that would strike down all her attackers except herself.
Following the battle, Triss goes with Yennefer and Avallac’h to Novigrad to try and reunite the Lodge of Sorceresses, taking up residence at the Rosemary and Thyme, an establishment owned by Dandelion. Unfortunately, they had not much luck, as Ida Emean outright refused and Francesca Findabair wouldn’t budge from her realm with a war raging.
When Geralt later arrived, Triss berates him for putting Ciri in danger by taking her to the Sabbath to face Imlerith. Afterwards, she informed him that the only Lodge member she could locate was Philippa Eilhart, who was tricked into her owl form by Arthur de Vleester, who put a dimeritium band on her leg afterwards. Worse yet, Philippa came into the possession of Zoltan Chivay, who lost her in a card game. Luckily, Triss found a feather. Using hydromancy at the fountain behind the Passiflora and divined that Philippa was in the possession of Sigismund Dijkstra. They rush to his bathhouse, where Philippa, having regained human form after Dijkstra foolishly removed her dimeritium band, was wreaking havoc. After Geralt managed to subdue her, Triss led her colleague to safety.
For the main article, see The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Guide to Romance.
Geralt can reignite his romance with Triss in separate stages. While extracting Lady Ingrid Vegelbud‘s son from her estate past the witch hunters, Triss gets drunk, which leads to Geralt kissing her as the fireworks start. At the conclusion of Now or Never, if Geralt professes his love for Triss and kissed her previously, she seemingly departs on the ship for Kovir. But she returns, interrupting Sigismund Dijkstra’s anecdote about his affair with Phillipa Eilhart. She asks to speak privately with Geralt at the lighthouse, where they have sex.
While searching for Phillipa using hydromancy, Triss’ spell in the reflection of the pool behind the Passiflora, changes to an unknown house. When pressed by Geralt, she reveals that King Tankred had offered her a position as his court advisor. She also reveals that the house is to be hers in Pont Vanis, where she wants them to live together after the Wild Hunt is defeated.
If Geralt finds one of Triss’ lost earrings in their bed back at Kaer Morhen, he can return it to her. During the epilogue, Geralt and Triss settle in far-away Kovir. Geralt would take jobs, more out of habit than need, due to the fortune Triss received as the advisor to Kovir’s king. If Geralt romances both Triss and Yennefer, they trick him into thinking they’re having a threesome, only to leave him tied to the bed in the Rosemary and Thyme.
If Geralt romanced Triss in the main game, then she makes an appearance during Geralt’s adventures in Toussaint.
After the quest Blood Run, Geralt receives a letter from Triss that begins the quest Turn and Face the Strange. The letter is read in her voice and not only details the discovery she made about Professor Moreau’s research, but also expresses a desire that Geralt remain safe and return to her quickly.
During the quest The Warble of a Smitten Knight, Geralt can make the necessary vow for the knights’ tourney on “his lady’s love”. In which case, he will say “I vow on the love of my lady, Triss Merigold, to respect the chivalric virtues”.
After the main questline for Blood and Wine is complete, Geralt can return to his home in Corvo Bianco and is surprised by Triss, who is waiting for him. After an embrace, the two venture outside to a sunny spot overlooking the vineyard. Once there, they have a conversation about various topics, including current events in Kovir and romantic plans the two have for each other in the future.
Developer comments Edit
|Triss Merigold is easily one of the most important supporting characters in our series of games, having appeared and played a key role in all three installments. This young but extraordinarily talented sorceress shares a complicated history with Geralt, one that exists somewhere on the spectrum between an on-and-off love affair and a deep, years-long friendship.
The main traits of Triss Merigold’s appearance, such as the shape of her face, her hairstyle, and her figure, were mainly based on the model created for her in the second game in the series. Only her clothing has changed significantly – it is now more elegant, more in fitting with the reigning style in Novigrad, the city of riches and fashion in which she now lives. Triss’ clothes still reflect her own tastes, however, including her fondness for cuts that emphasis her slim waist, a point of extreme pride for Triss in the books.

Journal entry Edit
I always considered it a point of particular pride to count Triss Merigold of Maribor among my closest and dearest friends. This exceptionally talented sorceress was a shining star of her profession, the former mage advisor to King Foltest, and a famous hero of the Battle of Sodden, known as the Fourteenth of the Hill. yet in no way did she resemble her often unbearably haughty sisters in magic. Her deft mind, warm smile and considerable personal charm had always won over even the hardest of hearts.Though my personal relations with Triss never ventured beyond the fraternal, Geralt of Rivia at one point found her allure irresistible. From then on the two shared feelings that ran far deeper than a superficial and fleeting fancy.Yennefer told Geralt that Triss had recently taken up residence in the Free City of Novigrad.It seemed Triss had gone into hiding from the so-called witch hunters persecuting magic wielders in the city, turning to one of the leaders of the local underworld for protection.After a bit of a run-around Geralt found the sorceress, who had indeed entered into an arrangement with the so-called King of Beggers. She paid for his protection by providing magic services to his organization. Though Triss did not know anything about Ciri and her stay in Novigrad, she promised to do all within her power to aid Geralt’s search.Though theoretically Triss and Geralt had ended their romance half a year earlier, it was clear the feelings they felt for each other had not vanished so easily. To deal with this, the sorceress pretended that nothing had happened and the witcher, as is his wont, sheepishly masked his feelings with a mix of hesitant interest and fake indifference. It must be said that both of them handled the situation quite awkwardly.The plan to get close to Caleb Menge that Triss presented to the witcher was very risky and placed her in great danger. The sorceress knew, however, that Ciri’s life might be on the line, and so did not hesitate for even a moment.If Geralt kisses Triss:The sorceress’ laugh, the look in her cornflower blue eyes, the memory of enchanting moments spent together – all that surely weighed on Geralt’s decision to kiss Triss in the Vegelbuds’ garden. And though their moment of sweet oblivion lasted briefly, it breathed a gale’s worth of new life into feelings between them.If Now or Never is completed:Though Triss and Geralt said their final goodbyes on that wind-swept Novigrad dock, in the end the sorceress decided not to leave for Kovir after all. She knew that when Geralt asked her to stay, the witcher was opening up his heart to her for the first time.Geralt and Triss met again at Kaer Morhen. Triss arrived there at the witcher’s behest to help defend Ciri, whom she had always treated as a younger sister.

Differences from the novels Edit
- After her fall at Sodden Hill and her consequent resuscitation, Triss mentions that she “will never again be able to wear a dress with a low neckline”, suggesting that some skin disfigurement still remains on her chest. In the game however, she displays a generous amount of cleavage without any traces of damage whatsoever. She also asserts that “others knew me fleetingly and always recognised me by my beautiful hair. And I, damn it, didn’t have it any more!”, stating that she lost all or most of her hair during the battle. Subsequently, however, she then states that “we were cured, patched up, our former appearances returned to us, our hair and sight restored”.
- Also, her hair color is portrayed red in the games, whereas in the books it is described as chestnut, which is reddish brown hair.
- In the novels Triss is allergic to potions that contain magic and can only be cured with amulets. In game one of the first missions is to recover the ingredients for a potion to heal Triss (although Vesemir briefly mentions that due to her allergy, said potion requires special ingredients).
- In the Games Triss’ eyes are green, though in the books they’re blue.
- Name “Triss” means happy or blessed (from Latin origin).
- Triss made an appearance in polish Playboy (05/2011), moreover – a front cover girl.
- In the Czech translation of the books and the game, Dandelion‘s name is “Marigold” and Triss is called “Triss Ranuncul”. The original name of Dandelion is “Jaskier” (in Polish)
- In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, if the player hadn’t recovered Triss’ earring in the main game and the romance had progressed into the Blood and Wine expansion, the player won’t be able to return the earring to her.
- In The Witcher, if you decide to get her a ring, it must contain a ruby. She will not take any other types. On top of that, you have to behave like a good father, by being strict with Alvin at least once.
- You can find Gold Ruby Signet Ring from the Salamanders in the Swamp in Chapter III.
- The gift of a ring will provide a second opportunity for sex, third if you count the checking for internal injuries.
- Triss is rarely home in Chapter III and stays at Leuvaarden‘s party at The New Narakort from 17:30 till 3:00.
- ↑ In Blood of Elves it’s mentioned that Triss couldn’t understand Yennefer and Geralt’s relationship and it had fascinated her to such an extent that she had seduced Geralt with the help of a little magic.
