- Isengrim

Isengrim Faoiltiarna, aka the "Iron Wolf", was an elf, and one of the most experienced members of the Scoia'tael. He was a key player in the events at Thanedd Island and later was responsible of the capture of Cahir, who was later delivered to some Hav'caarens, who were tasked in bringing him before Emhyr var Emreis, the Imperator of Nilfgaard.

Isengrim took later part in the Battle of Brenna where he was in charge of the Vrihedd Brigade with the Colonel rank.

After the war's end, as a condition of the Treaty of Cintra, thirty-two elven commanders that fought under Nilfgaardian banner were captured and surrendered to the Northern Kingdoms, including Isengrim. The prisoners were later brought to Dillingen in order to execute them. Unlike his mates, Isengrim managed to escape and fled to the foot of the Elskerdeg Pass, where he met with Sigismund Dijkstra and Boreas Mun, both fugitives for their own reasons. The three of them formed an unlikely travelling party, heading East, towards Zerrikania or even Haakland, presumably leaving the territories of the Nilfgaard Empire and the Northern Kingdoms for good.

Trivia Edit

  • The physical description of Iorveth in the gameThe Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings' journal entry is a direct quote of the physical description of Isengrim Faoiltiarna in the novel Baptism of Fire.
  • "Faoiltiarna" is broken Irish for "Wolf Lord", while "Isegrimm" (without the n) is a German poetic word for "Wolf".
