- "Aye, so far. But it'd be best to know peace again. Times like these you never know what tomorrow will bring."
- —Elsa on war[src]
Elsa is the innkeeper at the White Orchard Inn, where Geralt and Vesemir first meet her during their search for Yennefer. Elsa cannot provide much information as she has not seen Yennefer, but accommodates the two witchers with food and drink should they require it. If Geralt did not ask Bram for a reward previously, Elsa gives four roast chicken legs for free.
Later, when Geralt and Vesemir are preparing to leave the village, a woman begins accosting Elsa for removing the Temerian shield from the wall. Elsa explains that she did so to protect herself and the tavern from the Nilfgaardians. However, the woman dismisses this justification, as her sister had been executed by the Nilfgaardians for being superstitious. She becomes violent and grabs Elsa by the head and proceeds to bash it against the counter repeatedly. Geralt and Vesemir intervene and attract the attention of some local men who believe that the witchers are conspiring with the Emperor Emhyr. The men refuse to back down, and thus the situation ends in a massacre. Both women become terrified of the witchers, and Elsa, cowering behind the counter, tells Geralt to leave and never return.
Elsa is encountered later at The Kingfisher tavern in Novigrad. After Priscilla's ballad ends, she emerges from the crowd and points out Geralt as the witcher who "murdered those Temerian boys" in White Orchard. The rest of the patrons, however, pay no heed to this and become annoyed that Elsa is ruining the atmosphere.
