|This article is about Iola from the short story "The Voice of Reason". For Iola, one of Ciri's classmates at the Temple of Meleitle, see Iola the Second.|
This article is too short to provide more than rudimentary information about the subject. You can help Witcher Wiki by expanding it.
Iola the first, or simply Iola, is a young, sensitive woman with reddish hair, freckles and blue eyes. She is a priestess in the Temple of Melitele in Ellander, and thus a protégé of Nenneke. As a sacrifice to the goddess, Iola has taken vows of silence, which remain unbroken.

In the Polish Movie and TV series[edit | edit source]
Like in the short story, Iola slept with Geralt while he was healing from grievous damage. In the TV-series, the healing aspects of said encounter were highlighted, and in the aftermath Iola foresaw destruction coming to the temple. This vision and its setting differ quite a lot from the scene that essentially ends "The Voice of Reason".
