How old is Geralt of Rivia in the series of ”The Witcher”, a fictional character and the protagonists of short stories and novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski?
Geralt is almost 100 years old when the series starts and we find him in the middle of a journey. Naturally, Geralt doesn’t look like he’s 100-years-old since Witchers are alchemically-enhanced humans. The Actor of the character in the series Henry Cavill is 36 only but his character, Geralt, is about a century old. The legendary witcher of the School of the Wolf active throughout the 13th century is enhanced by magic and mutations. This witch powers are responsible for the youthful Tuck Everlasting appearance and longevity of several main characters, particularly Geralt and Yennefer.
Geralt, one of the few remaining witchers on the Continent, is a traveling monster slayer for hire, mutated and trained from an early age to slay deadly beasts.
Turns out his witcher training also prolongs his lifespan. Another character Yennefer, like most sorceresses, has undergone a beautifying ritual that stops her from aging in her time. Those nice looking faced heroes are actually old guys or quite comfortably into middle age who look like they are starting it out.
