In the third part of The Witcher, the player can observe a number of strong friendships of Geralt of Rivia. But who can be called his closest friend?
Geralt with all his behavior refutes the rumor about the lack of feelings and emotions in witchers… And his strong, long-term relationship with a range of characters is excellent proof of that. What is the only choice, which still makes fans of the series “bare blades” – smelling of lilacs and gooseberries Yennefer or red-haired devil Triss? But the witcher’s friends are just as important, or even more than his ladies of the heart. Let’s try to figure out who became the closest to Geralt.
Although Roche and Geralt have known each other for a long time, the tongue does not rise to be called close friends. All too often, these two found themselves on opposite sides of the barricades. And the mistrust of the commander of the Blue Stripes does little to help rapprochement. However, Roche joins Geralt in the fight against the Wild Hunt even though Leto is nearby., whom the Temerian does not believe in one iota.
It is about Dudu that Geralt remembers and worries about seeing a Doppler burning at the stake in Novigrad… And although they do not interact so much when they meet, and the main development of their relationship remains behind the scenes, the Doppler trusts the witcher enough to get involved in an adventure to save Dandelion. Dudu agrees to take the risk and impersonate Caleb Menge, which means something.
Lambert and Esquel
Let’s do without the well-known saying about Lambert and just say that these two are not even friends, but Geralt’s family, along with Vesemir and Ciri. And only the merry rest of the trinity in Kaer Morhen can tell a lot about the strength of their relationship.
Axel is kinder to Geralt, but Lambert, with all his barbs, spends much more time with the protagonist than with Esquel.
However, enough says about the close connection between these characters. the dispute of the “couple” about who is Geralt’s best friend after all.
For all the shortcomings of Geralt, one cannot deny him the ability to maintain good relations with his ex. A new meeting with the medic Shani in the DLC “Stone Septa” is proof of that. The characters calmly renew their friendship.chatting about what happened in their lives during the years of separation.
Regardless of whether the player decides to resume the old romance or not, Shani will be there and help Geralt deal with the mystery of Olgerd von Everek.
It is difficult to describe the relationship between Geralt and Vesemir, because an old witcher for the main character and a friend, and a father, and a mentor… He is one of those who have been present for the longest time in Geralt’s life and taught him a lot.
Vesemir may seem like a person who is always focused on business and does not know how to relax. But it’s not that simple. Although he is not very frank with the hero, and little time is devoted to their relationship in the plot, this does not mean that the old man does not belong on this list. After all, few can boast that stayed with Geralt as long as his teacher.
Triss and Geralt’s relationship is always danced on a thin thread between friendship and love.
The ambiguity of this connection has flowed into games from the books. Triss feels what place she occupies in the heart of Geralt Ian. And even if she is not delighted with this, red-haired sorceress, pushing jealousy into the background, helps the witcher with the search for Dandelion and Ciri, fights alongside everyone in the Battle of Kaer Morhen.

Yennefer of Vengerberg
Are Geralt and Yennefer friends? Yes and no. They are not always perfect, but there is such a strong bond between themthat these two will always find their way to each other. And even in those periods when they are not together as a couple, Ian helps Geralt, which makes her kindred to Triss.

Ironically, in The Witcher 3 Zoltan seems closer to Geralt than the same Buttercup… They spend a lot of time together, help each other more than once. Geralt solves Zoltan’s financial problems, and Zoltan helps the witcher with the Wild Hunt.
But Zoltan, unlike Dandelion, does not come to Geralt in Corvo Bianco, in the DLC only others mention him.
The appearance and age are not an obstacle to friendship, which is proved by Regis, one of Geralt’s closest friends.
