Yes, Fjall Stoneheart is the first Witcher ever. According to 'The Witcher: Blood Origin,' Fjall gets transformed into a combination of an elf and an alien beast, giving him enhanced strength, speed, and senses after he consumes Syndrill's potions when Eile is sleeping.
While there's a lot to enjoy about Netflix's The Witcher, one of the series' most appealing aspects is the magnificent creatures Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) gets to slay in each episode. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that The Witcher: Blood Origin also manages to include an exciting encounter with a being from another dimension.
Blood Origin does contain a prototype monster slayer that serves as the first Witcher in the Continent, even though it takes place 1200 years before the main series and a few centuries before the order of the Witchers is founded. While much of the monster-hunting organization is cloaked in secrecy and prejudice from those it protects, most are aware that the Witchers' enhanced reflexes and strength are due to genetic mutation and experimentation.
The prequel shows a number of notorious historical occurrences from the Witcher canon, including the identity of the first Witcher ever. While many people believe Fjall Stoneheart is the first ever Witcher, many viewers are not sure about it. Well, we've got you covered.
Yes, Fjall Is the First Witcher Ever: Know What Happened After He Became a Witcher!
In The Witcher: Blood Origin, it is revealed that the first genetically enhanced monster hunter was an elf by the name of Fjall Stoneheart, despite the fact that Witchers had multiplied enough to become a legendary order in the original series. So yes, Fjall is the first-ever Witcher.
As seen in the series, Syndrill suggests uniting his body with the heart of a massive beast they discovered in a distant realm once the Seven come together to plan their attack. Syndrill wants to make the sacrifice since it is unpleasant and maybe fatal. Unfortunately, a warrior, not a magician, is needed by the Seven to slay the monster. As a result, Fjall and Éile offer to serve as the experiment's volunteers.
Éile is passionate about becoming the first Witcher, but Fjall connives with her and consumes Syndrill's potions when she is sleeping. The warrior wishes to save the lady he loves the suffering of the Trial of the Grasses, in which he is forced to take a number of potions and plants that destroy both his body and mind in order to prepare for the fusion with the monster's heart. The procedure is completed by Zacaré, Syndrill's heavenly sister, piercing Fjall's body and infusing the monster's essence.
Fjall dies for a minute following the procedure. He can smell the blood inside other people when he is revived, and he feels like killing the world due to the intense hatred that is burning inside of him. Fjall is a match for the beast of the Empress since he is stronger and more resilient than any Elf has ever been.
Unfortunately, while doing this, Fjall also goes insane, and after killing the beast, he turns against his former companions. Fjall must be killed by Éile, leaving the Seven as the sole eyewitnesses to his change. Because of this, even though Fjall is the first Witcher, it would take ages for the Trial of the Grasses to be uncovered and revised in order to produce legitimate Witchers.
We are now tempted to believe that Fjall was never intended to be a real Witcher in the narrow sense of what a Witcher is. But we do think that his presence and transformation served as the prototypes for showing the world that it was possible to give an elf or a human the characteristics of a monster or another creature. And Syndril's death in Blood Origin may indicate that the method was misplaced by the elves until humans discovered it after defeating them on the Continent.
What we're trying to imply is that it's possible that various components were used in place of the same method to make each Witcher, which is why none of them ended up looking like Fjall. The human mages who most likely came across Syndril's study recognized the potential to use the method to produce something that wasn't fully monstrous but had the power and magical powers necessary to compete with monsters.
As a result, it is more likely that Fjall's transformation was a prototype—albeit a different and unsuccessful one—that helped wizards realize that making a hybrid was possible. And it was perhaps this that inspired human wizards to experiment and produce the real first Witcher.
