Torres var Emreis[1] was the Nilfgaardian Empire's Imperator in the 12th century.


In 1135, Torres introduced a carp that had a gold medal with his likeness attached to its gills into the Imperial Palace's artificial pond.[3] The carp lived for 132 years until dying in 1267.[4]

The following is considered game canon only and may contradict Andrzej Sapkowski's works.

During his reign, Torres strived to strengthen the position of himself and his family by various edicts. One such, named March 8th Edict, established the cult of the Great Sun as both the state religion and patron of the Emreises.[5]

He also proved to be a fairly skilled commander, repulsing invasions from Gemmera more than once. His attempt at conquering Vicovaro, however, was not as successful and despite controlling its entire territory at one point Nilfgaardian Army was ultimately forced to retreat.[1][6]
