People Eskel full

Eskel is a calm and reasonable witcher and Geralt's friend from his youth. They were raised together at Kaer Morhen and even went through the trials together. He has a large, disfiguring scar on his face and spends winters in the Kaer Morhen keep, just like all the others.

In the short story "The Last Wish", Geralt reminisces about an afternoon with Eskel when they were young. In the novel "Blood of Elves", Triss notices that Eskel emanates even more magical power than Geralt does.

The Witcher (PC) Edit

If you stick around Kaer Morhen after you have cured Triss with the potion, you can receive a fistfighting tutorial from Eskel as well as some valuable information on fighting in general. Otherwise, his role in The Witcher is quite small. He appears in no other acts, only the Prologue (as is the case with all other witchers in the game except Berengar).

In "The Price of Neutrality" premium module Edit

Eskel does feature prominently in the premium module "The Price of Neutrality", where he is nearly as important as Geralt to the plot. In "The Price of Neutrality", he must come to terms with the consequences of a chance encounter some 20 years in the past. It appears that Eskel saved a knight in dire trouble and was offered anything he wanted as a reward. Given such a wide-open choice, he could not think of anything and instead repeated the fabled and oft-heard request "give me that which you find at home yet do not expect" that he had heard Vesemir repeat over the years.

This is how Deidre Ademeyn became his surprise child. The story goes on to say that Eskel took great pains to avoid ever going back to get his surprise child, sometimes taking ridiculously long routes to avoid being in the vicinity in Caingorn.

Eskel can be found in the old mine, just south of Kaer Morhen where he is busy clearing the place of a kikimore hatchery and generally brooding about Deidre.
