Cyberpunk 2077 is eventually going to come out and when it does that means fans will be ready for the next thing from CD Projekt Red. That is to say, they have the urge for another adventure in The Witcher franchise. Thanks to the last game, DLC, and the Netflix show, the brand is more popular than ever.

A sequel is more a matter of when and not if. The big question is what the game will be about? Will it be more about Geralt or will Ciri take over? There are two branching paths to her story, which leads to this fan art piece. Will she be a Witcher, or will she remain a background character as an Empress? Let’s see what the fans think.

10 Witcher: Fire And Leather

The CG art in this makes Ciri look almost real. It looks like something one might create in order to promote their brand. That is to say one can easily imagine an intro graphic wherein Ciri takes up her flaming sword and cuts through a logo or something. That should be CD Projekt Red’s new animatic. This piece of artwork was created by DatzALab and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

9 Empress: Goth Empress

This version of Ciri makes her look like an evil Disney queen. The black leather mixed with the blood red and golden goblet resonates with that vibe. Put Ciri in Kingdom Hearts is basically what this picture is calling out for. This piece of artwork was created by DatzALab and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

8 Witcher: In The Market

This is a simple, yet well-crafted picture depicting Ciri carelessly walking through a crowded market. This perfectly captures what it must be like to be a Witcher in the downtimes in the role. They are fleeting, but treasured moments. An apple away keeps the beasts at bay as they say. This piece of artwork was created by MonoriRogue and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

7 Empress: A Noble Woman

This artwork also looks real just like the first entry. Artists, be they fan or professional, can really get eerily close sometimes. Anyway, compared to the last Empress art, this one shows a fairer side to Ciri.

Just because she becomes a member of royalty doesn’t necessarily mean she will rule with an iron thumb. This piece of artwork was created by Akarana and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

6 Witcher: Hellgirl

This picture is reminiscent of the Hellboy comics, hence the title. It doesn’t look exactly like that art, but it definitely has a comic aesthetic at the very least. For those unaware, yes, there actually are official comics based on The Witcher and they aren’t too bad either. This piece of artwork was created by IrenHorrors and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

5 Empress: Ciri The Gathering

First of all, the actual artwork looks great showing off another more noble Empress. Secondly, it looks like this piece could be going for three different things. One, it could be a tarot card. Two, it could also be a card in Magic the Gathering. Three, this could be a painting of Ciri that presumably sits above her throne. This piece of artwork was created by AlexielApril and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

4 Witcher: Toon Prototype

This artwork also has a comic style to it, but it’s a bit different than the Hellboy picture. One could even imagine this is a rough outline for a storyboard. That is to say this could be a mock-up for a Witcher cartoon. The live action show is great, but in terms of video game adaptations on Netflix, Castlevania is better. That’s why this idea is so exciting. This piece of artwork was created by saint-max and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

3 Empress: Blood Crown

This might be an obvious observation to make, but this picture, particularly the crown of blood, could be a commentary on the price of leadership. It may sound great to be on top but it comes with a price: blood.

Freedom is not free as they say and behind every ruler are people that sweat blood to make them feel more at ease. This piece of artwork was created by MilliganVick and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

2 Witcher: Mako Infused

Ciri is already a superhuman since she is a Witcher. It comes with the territory. She is also naturally gifted in other ways as well. All that aside, that green blur calls back to another infused superhuman, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII. That is to say her green aura is reminiscent of Mako energy. This piece of artwork was created by PavelTomashevskiy and was uploaded to DeviantArt.

1 Empress: A Tired Lord

Last but not least, a weathered Ciri in the prime of her rulership. This is an Empress clad in armor who looks like she knows the price of freedom. Nothing will stand in her way to get to it even if her expression screams that she has regrets. This piece of artwork was created by YuriPlatov and was uploaded to DeviantArt.
