In the forest of The witcher, we were able to meet the dryads, kinds of fairies who make sure that all those who cross their lands do not have bad intentions. Season 2 will show us that the woods are not only inhabited by good people, the witches Whispess, Brewess and Weavess are expected to make an appearance. Concerning the dryads, they make the water of Brokilon, also called the water of Oblivion, drink to the new arrivals. This psychotropic drink makes it possible to detect the true intentions of those they meet. If a bad person drinks it, he dies, for others it allows them to get permission to stay in the forest. This water can turn humans into dryads, but the effects are different on witers. The question that fans are now asking themselves, that’s why Ciri didn’t have any side effects when she ingested Brokilon’s water?
When witers drink this water, it usually causes them to experience terrible hallucinations due to their mutation.. Queen Eithne explained to Ciri and Dara that with time, water “alleviated the suffering they had endured” and also allowed them to forget some of them. However, Ciri had neither visions nor hallucinations when she drank the Oblivion water. Because of this, Eithne took her to Shan-Kayan, a large tree from which Ciri was able to drink a large amount of water. Thus, she was finally able to have a vision, that of a large luminescent tree in the middle of the desert … It is thanks to this that the dryads but also Ciri were able to know her true identity. It remains to be seen why her first sips had no effect on Princess Ciri, is she of a species not yet listed by the dryads? Neither the original books nor the series explained this plotline, which is why it is hoped that Season 2 of The witcher will offer us answers. In the meantime, we let you discover why Geralt of Rivia has two swords in the series. Netflix !
