På grund av rykten om den nya Netflix witcher-serien frågar jag hur Cirillas hudfärg beskrivs i böckerna?
Hennes hudfärg anges aldrig specifikt men vi kan gissa att hon troligen var en blekskinnig kaukasisk:
The queen lifted her head. Geralt knelt.“Witcher,” she responded drily.As before, the queen wore emeralds matching the green of her dress and her eyes. As before, a thin gold crown encircled her ash-gray hair. But her hands, which he remembered as thin and white, were not as thin as before.
The longer he studied her, the more she lost her magical aura and became more humane and ordinary –almost mundane. He knew, however, that such was not the case, it could not be. A plain, ordinary girl would never have been met alone at the foot of Y Wyddfa, on the edge of Cwm Pwcca, bathing naked in a mountain lake and washing a blood-stained shirt. No matter how the girl looked, in no case could she be an earthly creature.Despite knowing this, Galahad could look calmly and without superstitious fear at her mouse coloured hair, which to his amazement now that it was dry, was traversed by shiny streaks of grey. He could now look at her slender hands, her little nose, her pale lips her male clothing with a strange cut, made with an extremely delicate fabric.
Ciri är blek. Det finns kapitel i bok som beskriver det mycket exakt:
"… Now it’s our turn, thought Geralt. He was right. The officer stared at Ciri. His eyes shone through the opening in his visor, watching everything without missing a detail. Her paleness. The scar on her cheek…"
