Assire var Anahid is a Nilfgaardian sorceress who hails originally from Vicovaro. She's a second cousin to Cahir. She was a founding member of the Lodge of Sorceresses and remains a member along with her countrywoman Fringilla Vigo. She took advantage of Carthia van Canten's relationship with the head of Nilfgaard's secret service, Vattier de Rideaux. She was also known for helping the emperor with military operations during the war.
Assire var Anahid is a secondary character in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
- This sorceress came from Nilfgaard, or more precisely from Vicovaro - a distinction of extreme importance to the highborn of the Empire, as I can attest from personal experience. That is because the term "Nilfgaardian" is reserved for native residents of the Empire's capital and its immediate vicinity. Assire var Anahid was nothing like stereotypical Nilfgaardian sorceresses – unkempt things in unfashionable attire. On the contrary, she wore well-cut dresses and underlined her beauty with just the right touch of makeup, following the example of our sorceresses in the North.
- As momentous events played out in Loc Muinne, Assire was murdered - probably by her own countrymen, possibly on order of the emperor himself. The hazy circumstances surrounding her death gave rise to much speculation in Nilfgaard, fueling propaganda and political conflicts for some time to come.
