|- Tissaia de Vries, The Poisoned Source|
During the coup on Thanedd Island, it was she who teleported a heavily wounded Geralt and Triss away from the hands of the approaching Redanian army. After the coup on Thanedd Island, Tissaia committed suicide slitting her wrists. Together with the other losses, her death spelled the end of the Council, making way for the Lodge of Sorceresses.
| || She opened the drawer in the dresser and took a short knife with a bone handle.
Her face was proud and fixed. Expressionless. It was quiet in the house. So quiet, the sound of a wilted petal falling on the tabletop could be heard. The sun, as red as blood, slowly sank below the roofs of the houses. Tissaia de Vries sat down on the chair by the table, blew out a candle, straightened the quill lying across the letter one more time and severed the arteries in both wrists.
