The Witcher: Blood Origin Timeline
A short synopsis of The series was released with the announcement that said that the Blood Origin is set at 1,200 years before the events of The series, in an elvish civilization that has yet to interact with humans or monsters. It follows a trio of warrior elves who will become entangled with the creation of the first prototype Witcher. It also spans the events leading up to the Conjunction of the Spheres — the moment the human, elf, and monster worlds collide.
