Blood and Wine expansion Edit
Orianna appears to be very wealthy, she owns an estate, where she hosts lavish parties for artists, one of which Geralt attends in the quest, The Man from Cintra. Orianna also appears to be acquainted with Dettlaff and Regis, where she states the latter as her friend from the past. The witcher consults her on how to find the Unseen Elder as you accompany her to the orphanage.
Journal entry Edit
- During the soiree organized by the Mandragora, Geralt met Orianna, a valued patroness to many local artists. There was something about this woman that made most who met her feel somehow ill at ease. She could not break the witcher’s iron-hard self-composure, of course, but she did give him the impression she was no normal aristocrat – and his impressions were usually spot-on.
- Regis' charismatic friend was revealed to be a fellow vampire, though nowhere near as civilized and humanitarian as he. She owned an orphanage outside the city which, as the witcher discovered to his horror, she used as a sort of blood cellar, visiting it whenever the urge struck her to drink some blood straight from an orphan’s neck. Geralt swore that if they ever met again…
Associated quests Edit
As Geralt promised when leaving Orianna’s orphanage, he came back for her. Geralt approaches and notes that locals paid him for her, she remarks that in the times past witchers would never take such a contract. Then she throws off her clothes transforming into her invisible form and unnaturally quickly disappears in the nearby barn.
Then fight occurs and witcher eventually wins with help of Black Blood potion, Moon dust bombs, his sword and his crossbow. Geralt follows preparing his hook for trophies but collapses alongside her seeing her last tear and agony. When Geralt wakes, he leaves her melting body without taking the trophy and rides on his faithful Roach away in a hurry towards Beauclair.
- She was played by Zsuzsanna Rácz in the trailer and voiced by Laura Doddington in both the trailer and the game. Rácz stated on her personal Twitter that it is "one of her best works".
- Although she is confirmed to be a Higher Vampire, due to her appearance as a Bruxa in the cinematic trailer, "A Night to Remember," many fans are divided over whether or not she's a Bruxa or another type of higher vampire.
