First Appearance The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
Affiliation(s) Vergen
Profession(s) Sorcerer

Cynthia is a secondary character in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. She is Philippa Eilhart's "leashed sorceress", a sort of apprentice and evidently also the sorceress' lover.

Cynthia can be found in Philippa Eilhart's house in Vergen during Chapter 2. She will discuss the Wild Hunt with Geralt, if Geralt has found the Wild Hunt investigator's notes.

Cynthia is also involved in the quest The Secrets of Loc Muinne. This is a new quest added in the Enhanced Edition, and only available on Iorveth's Path. Upon completing the quest, Cynthia can become a sexual partner for Geralt.

During Where is Triss Merigold?, Geralt learns from Shilard Fitz-Oesterlen that Cynthia, unbeknownst even to Philippa, is actually a Nilfgaardian spy that was sent to infiltrate Saskia's rebels and spy the actions of the Lodge of Sorceresses. While under cover she managed to capture Triss and compress her into a small jade statuette which she gave to a messenger to send it to Shilazard.

Significant plot details end here.

Journal EntryEdit

Tw2 journal Cynthia
Philippa Eilhart's preferences in partners were widely known, yet they were audibly commented upon only in a specific circles, and only when the sorceress could not hear. Cynthia was Philippa's lover at the time – not the first one, and probably not the last.
As it turned out, Cynthia was also a spy for the Nilfgaardian Empire. However, those who could have stopped her saw through her games too late.
Added in Enhanced Edition:
Geralt had not expected to run into Cynthia again, let alone in such an unusual place. But he did. The Nilfgaardian was leading a scientific expedition that was to explore the caverns beneath Loc Muinne. Their objective was to reach the laboratory of the famous mage Dearhenna.

Throughout their quest beneath the city's ruins, Geralt had remained wary of Cynthia - and for good reason. Yet as they worked together to overcome mortal danger, the ice between them melted. When a quarrel broke out over Dearhenna's legacy, the sorcerer Adalbert wanted to kill the witcher. Cynthia, however, took Geralt's side.
