SILE DE TANSARVILLE
Geralt and I both knew Sile de Tansarville, the Recluse Kovir, the Once proud member of the Lodge of Sorceresses who in her day plotted, persuaded and spellcast the world into a shape of her liking. Sile always claimed she acted only out of concern for the good of magic and mankind, yet the blood of a great many people stained her hands, including that of kings who stood in the way of her aims. She took part in countless conspiracies and herself devised many intrigues in which the witcher often figured as an unwitting accomplice, obstacle or incidental victim.
Thus Geralt's prior meetings with the sorceress were stormy at best. On at least one occasion it could be said that Geralt saved Siles life, but this did not mean he felt very warmly about her.
Be that as it may, the sight of the tortured and maimed sorceress in King Radovids dungeon made the witchers cold heart swell with sorrow and sympathy, Perhaps it was these feelings, or perhaps it was simply respect for a defeated former enemy now suffering at the hands of cruel fanatics, that made Geralt take pity on her. Aware of what fate awaited her if she lived, Sile de Tansarville was grateful to be given a dignified death, one free from torment and humiliation.
