- Yaevinn, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game
Audio version:
Yaevinn voice line

Yaevinn is an elf and a member of Toruviel's Scoia'tael commando. He also has his own commando in the vicinity of Vizima. He has a greater penchant for flowery words and metaphors than most elves, perhaps rivaling Dandelion alone in his prose.

Yeavinn participated in the second war with Nilfgaard. During the Battle of Brenna, where he was Lieutenant Colonel of the Deithwen division, he and his commando entered in the medic tent of Rusty and started to kill all the patients but they immediately stopped when they saw that the medic and his assistants were healing wounded people from both the factions, making no difference between allies and enemies.

He was later seriously injured in that battle.

The Witcher (PC) Edit

Yaevinn appears in Chapter II of the game. He treats Geralt with hesitant respect and appeals to him to aid his faction; he reminds him that as a mutant, he would never be accepted in human society, only tolerated and could better relate to the cause of the Scoia'tael. He is eloquent and often speaks in verse, employing metaphors and literary allusions to convey his meaning.

If the witcher chooses to ally himself with the Scoia'tael, Yaevinn plays an even more central role in the story. It is also Toruviel who is a member of Yaevinn's group rather than the other way around, although he does not seem to outrank her by much.

Journal entry Edit

Yaevinn the elf is as conceited as he is eloquent. He seems cunning and wise; moreover, he despises humans, considering them aggressive barbarians, and has respect only for the Elder Races. Still, this disillusioned elf treats me with respect in his own, peculiar way.'Everything suggests that Yaevinn is preparing for battle — in the swamp he has created a training camp for the Scoia'tael under his command.
Items Squirrel tail Scoia'tael Path:
The Scoia'tael led by Yaevinn defeated the Order of the Flaming Rose during the clash in the Golem Burial Ground.
Yaevinn is interested in artifacts of historical value for the nonhumans — he's looking for something which could serve as a banner for his Scoia'tael. Yaevinn remains a cynic and a pragmatist even when thinking about the heritage of the Elder Blood.
During the bank robbery in the Trade Quarter I decided to support the Scoia'tael. Yaevinn believes that the stolen money will finance an uprising.
I asked Yaevinn for military support during the assault on Salamandra's headquarters in Vizima. The elf, who was among those invited to Leuvaarden's reception, agreed to help me dismantle the organization.
On the hill under the Old Manor my friend aided me again. We stood shoulder to shoulder against Salamandra.
