One of the most beautiful songs to have come from video games is The Wolven Storm, also known as Priscilla the Callonetta’s Song from the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It tells the tale of Gerald of Rivia and his love for the sorceress Yenefer of Vengerberg. The story that the song portrays is based on the back story from the books.

These scars long have yearned for your tender caress

To bind our fortunes, damn what the stars own

Rend my heart open, then your love profess

A winding, weaving fate to which we both atone

 

You flee my dream come the morning

Your scent – berries tart, lilac sweet

To dream of raven locks entwisted, stormy

Of violet eyes, glistening as you weep

 

The wolf I will follow into the storm

To find your heart, its passion displaced

Amidst the cold to hold you in a heated embrace

 

You flee my dream come the morning

Your scent – berries tart, lilac sweet

To dream of raven locks entwisted, stormy

Of violet eyes, glistening as you weep

 

I know not if fate would have us live as one

Or if by love’s blind chance we’ve been bound

The wish I whispered, when it all began

Did it forge a love you might never have found?

 

You flee my dream come the morning

Your scent – berries tart, lilac sweet

To dream of raven locks entwisted, stormy

Of violet eyes, glistening as you weep

Warning: Spoilers ahead for the Last wish and the Sword of Destiny. Read the books – they are amazing:

These scars long have yearned for your tender caress

To bind our fortunes, damn what the stars own

Rend my heart open, then your love profess

A winding, weaving fate to which we both atone

 

You flee my dream come the morning

Your scent – berries tart, lilac sweet

To dream of raven locks entwisted, stormy

Of violet eyes, glistening as you weep

This line describes Yennefer. She is described to smell of Lilac and Gooseberries. Her hair black with curls flowing with her violet eyes. “Glistening as you weep” is a reference to the ‘a Shard of ice story’ in which Geralt could not confess his love for Yenner, which caused them to break up and flee.

The wolf I will follow into the storm

To find your heart, its passion displaced

Amidst the cold to hold you in a heated embrace

Another reference to the ‘a Shard of Ice’ story in which Geralt and Yennefer split due to Geralt being unable to profess his love for the Sorceress Yenefer. Witcher’s shouldn’t have strong emotions – one of the effects of the trial of grasses – and thus breaks up with her and flees… until they’re reunited again.

 

I know not if fate would have us live as one

Or if by love’s blind chance we’ve been bound

The wish I whispered, when it all began

Did it forge a love you might never have found?

In the Witcher novels, fate plays a large part in the stories. In the Last Wish Yennefer tried catching a D’jinn and using it’s wish to give her something that is unattainable from all sorceress and mutants alike. At the end of the story Geralt wishes that the Djinn not kill Yenefer linking their fates with each other. If he dies so will Yennefer.
