At the beginning of the Witcher Season 2, Geralt and Ciri are on their journey to Kaer Morhen, Geralt’s hometown, when the storm slows down their travel. They had to take refuge under an old friend of Geralt’s named Nivellen.
When Geralt entered Nivellen’s palace, he was surprised how he was a human but turned into a monster. Nivellen then explained that he is cursed because once, while drunk, he entered a temple and hurt a Priestess. Geralt and Nivellen are talking about how sometimes people look like monsters but aren’t, and sometimes humans, who don’t look like monsters, do some monstrous acts.
After these philosophical talks between Geralt and Nivellen, Ciri went into a guest room to get some rest. There a character entered, a girl-like creature crawling over the roof came really close to Ciri, which was Vereena. The creature was very beautiful in human form but was petrifying in vampire form.
