You seemingly can't tell a fantasy story without the inclusion of elves, and The Witcher is no different. Though the elves played a much bigger role in Season 2 of Netflix's Witcher adaptation, what do you actually know about them? Devoid of lengthy lore dumps via exposition, The Witcher television series can be a bit cumbersome to take in at times. After all, there is a sprawling world lurking in Andrzej Sapkowski's eight novels, and the show is doing its best to bring the author's works to life. This means there are thousands of years for the show to cover and, understandably, things are going to get lost in translation from page to screen.
For instance, did you know that the elves are not native to the Continent? Or that the elves spent centuries colonizing the Continent before humans showed up on the scene? Oh, Nilfgaardians may have also descended from elves, as well! There are all kinds of interesting little factoids about The Witcher's elves waiting for you below, so don't be afraid to scroll on down.
