There are so many new and important characters in The Wizard Season 2, require your own guide. That is something we really have for you. But there’s a new addition that has fans new and old scratching their heads. Who is Voleth Meir? Has anyone seen it before?
The Deathless Mother appears at the beginning of season 2. Although it has a limited screen time, it becomes essential for this new season. And we have the truth about everything you need to know about this sorceress.
Who is Voleth Meir, the immortal mother?
Remember that haunting old woman who told Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) that she could restore her powers if Yen brought her to Ciri (Freya Allan)? That was the Immortal Mother. Played by Ania Marson, Voleth Meir appeared to Yen, Fringilla (MimÃ® M. Khayisa) and Francesca (Mecia Simson) in the second episode of season 2 and promised them exactly what they wanted. For Yennefer, that meant the return of her magic. And for Fringilla and Francesca, that meant the approval of the Emperor of Nilfgaard and the healthy birth of an elf baby, respectively.
Little is known about this ancient witch. The first witches were hired to imprison her, a job that resulted in her being tied to a hut in the middle of the forest. Due to this, Voleth Meir was unable to leave his hut and had to depend on people coming to her so that he could make his deals. She feeds on the pain and fear of others. So yes. She is very bad news.
Is Voleth Meir in the books?
No. The Immortal Mother is a completely new character in the Sorcerer universe. She becomes central to Yennefer’s story.
What happens to Voleth Meir?
He may not be able to physically get out of his cabin, but at the end of season 2, Voleth Meir found a way out. Partly due to Yennefer, the Immortal Mother came to control Ciri. The possessed princess traveled to the warlock castle of Kaer Morhen for her own safety, but in the process, she put her new family in danger. After murdering several companions in Kaer Morhen, he destroyed the Medallion Tree, the warlock shrine to his lost brothers, only to reveal that this shrine was actually a monolith. He then used that monolith to open portals to other dimensions, channeling basilisks to fight Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), Geralt (Henry Cavill), and the other warlocks.
It was an intense fight. But thanks to Geralt’s encouragement and Yennefer’s sacrifice, Ciri was able to expel Voleth Meir from her body. It was then that Geralt told Ciri to open one more portal to force the Immortal Mother to return to where she came from.
Look, Voleth Meir was never from the same dimension as our heroes, a place known as Aen Seidhe. Actually, she was from another dimension, Aen Elle. That’s what all those monster-filled portals were all about. By using the power of Ciri and the monolith in Kar Morhen, Voleth Meir was able to blaze a path into the dimension of his home. At the end of “Family”, the Immortal Mother fled to this dimension and was finally able to return home. Another monster, another happy ending.
