Elaine Ettariel - an elven ballad about the heroine Ettariel. The ballad is in Elder Speech; the name translates as Fair Ettariel. Dandelion used this particular ballad, which he had embellished, to charm his way into Brokilon forest to see Geralt.

In the books[edit | edit source]

This ballad was mentioned, together with lyrics, in the Witcher series book Time of Contempt. Dandelion attempted to translate the lyrics.

"Yviss, m'evelien vente cáelm en tell

Elaine Ettariel Aep cór me lode deith ess'viell
Yn blath que me darienn
Aen minne vain tegen a me
Yn toin av muireánn que dis eveigh e aep llea...

Ueassan Lamm feainne renn, ess'ell,
Elaine Ettariel,
Aep cor aen tedd teviel e gwen
Yn blath que me darienn
Ess yn e evellien a me
Que shaent te cáelm a'vean minne me striscea..."

— pg(s). 208 – 209, Time of Contempt (UK edition)


Translation[edit | edit source]

"To adore you, is all my life

Fair Ettariel
Let me keep, then, the treasure of memories
And the magical flower;
A pledge and sign of your love.
Silvered by drops of dew as if by tears..."

— pg(s). 210, Time of Contempt (UK edition)


In The Witcher computer game[edit | edit source]

This ballad can be found on the soundtrack, composed by Adam Skorupa; it was featured at the beginning of Act IV.

Only the first part of the lyrics given in the book was featured, though.
