Then he is described as a mutant who can cast a spell on other people also who hunts monsters for money as he roams the Continent. Then things come p in such a way that all people see him as a monster too. But they plan to kill him. Then Geralt replies, that he is what people think him to be.
Meanwhile, another character says off-screen that she needs to find him. The Witcher trailer then shifts into more of an action-led gear, while dialogues hint where the narrative would go. Lauren is the creator of The Witcher is aiming to fill the medieval adult fantasy space that is left by Game of Thrones.
