The world of The Witcher is a big one and Netflix isn’t going to hold it against you for needing a little help getting to know everybody with the big premiere less than two weeks away. Released today are three character profile featurettes, one for each of the show’s main characters: Geralt of Rivia, Princess Cirilla, and Yennefer of Vengerberg.

On top of discussion from the stars themselves, the videos also include a decent chunk of new footage, deeper insight into the world as well as each character’s backstory, and even an appearance from everybody’s favorite bard, Jaskier. Have a look below for the videos and keep your eyes peeled on this space for more updates on the series in the coming days.
