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 rivalling Dandelion alone in his prose. He often claims that all he seeks is equality for his people even though he has a deep hatred for humans and would drive them into the sea.
In The Witcher computer game 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.
