Carthia van Canten, also known as "Cantarella" and ""Sasha"", was the mistress of Vattier de Rideaux, the head of Nilfgaardian intelligence for Emhyr var Emreis. She was informing Assire var Anahid about Vattier's intentions. She had an excellent memory, a lively intelligence, and a mercurial wit.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Edit

Carthia van Canten appears at the Passiflora in Novigrad where she partakes in a High Stakes gwent tournament under cover Sasha.

During the event she offers Geralt a deal in which they will split the winnings. It turns out her participation in the tournament was a cover to allow her to gain enough money to travel back to Nilfgaard after her cover is blown.

Trivia Edit

  • The command addfact(sq306_completed) enables an additional dialogue with Fringilla Vigo about Cantarella. For unknown reason it is not working automatically if High Stakes secondary quest is completed.
  • The name Cantarella is itself a reference to a supposed poison used during the Renaissance period, specifically under the Papacy of the Borgia family.
  • The name Cantarella in Italian means "whistleblower"
