“As soon as we start to see Emhyr again, we are going to know that he is Duny… it felt like the right time to do it.” – Lauran, Showrunner about White Flame.
The Witcher Season 2 started with the origin and powers of Ciri, played by Ferya Allen. Moreover, season 2 also revealed that the White Flame is Ciri’s father, Duny, played by Bart Edwards.
Ciri was not aware of her father being alive. She was told that both of her parents died in a shipwreck, due to which she was raised by her grandmother, Queen Calanthe of Cintra. Her parent’s marriage was not discussed with her, which was why she was destined to meet Geralt of Rivia.
When the Witcher Season 2 was released, Lauran S. Hissrich, the showrunner, justified the reason behind disclosing White Flame’s identity. Season 2 covers some of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels and the witcher video games.
One of the most exciting reveals unfolds at the end of the witcher season 2. The identity of White Flame is Duny, who is the ruler of the Nilfgaard Kingdom and a famous enemy of Northern Kingdoms. He is known as the Emhyr var Emreis, Duny, the father of Ciri, Princess Cirilla of Cintra.
