The Man from Cintra is a Main Quest from the Blood and Wine DLC in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Main Quests are the main storyline of the game that can have a major effect towards the endings. Some of these quests may have dialogue choices that will alter the ending of the game.

The Man from Cintra begins after the completion of the Wine is Sacred main quest from the Blood and Wine DLC.


It seemed as if matters had come to a head and the witcher would finally face he who had for some time succeeded in slinking from Geralt's grip like a snake. The Cintrian was to appear at a soirée hosted by "Mandragora" - an exclusive club that brought together all manner of artists who thought very highly of themselves. As I see it, they were a host of individuals whom nature had denied any significant talent. Thus, they opted not to produce more and better work, but instead to whimper into the ears of wealthy patrons - a practice for which I have always had the utmost contempt. But back to the Cintrian - Geralt and Anna Henrietta decided they would attend the soirée and nab this scoundrel dog.

Walkthrough for The Witcher 3 The Man from Cintra

When you begin this quest, you will have the optional objective to change your attire to fit the soiree occasion.  When you're done, or if you decide to skip this objective go ahead and meet Anna Henrietta in Mountebank Alley.

When you arrive, the cutscene will play and will fast forward to the event. You will then be released and will be given the option to partake in the festivities. Otherwise, you can move on by searching the alcoves for a woman with a Koviri orchid in her hair. 

Proceed with the quest and then there will be a short scene. Use your Witcher Senses to search the refreshment tables. You're looking for a heart-shaped box that will reveal a scent trail that you will need to follow. 

This will lead to a bodyguard in front of a door. Finish your interaction and continue using your Witcher Senses to follow the tracks. Observe the body, then the handprint nearer the balcony door. There will also be the flowerpot to observe once you cross to the next balcony over the door. Continue following the tracks and climbs the ladder. Head in and observe the bloodstains on the floor along with the chain, jewel, and jewelry box on the table next to the stains. On the other side of the bed is a mirror to observe. Then, look towards the window and observe the blood stains and the candlestick on the wall. Towards the door, take the hunting knife. Turn around and observe the painting on the wall as well. Once you have observed enough items, the quest will update and the cutscene will play out. This will end the quest. At the end of the dialogue, you will also be given two dialogue options when confronted with the idea that sometimes there is no option but to kill when loved ones are at risk and require protection.

  • That's no excuse
  • Just like humans. 

Complete the rest of the dialogue and the cutscene will eventually conclude. This will also complete the quest and immediately begin the next one in the questline: Capture the castle


The Man from Cintra Journals

The witcher was largely unaccustomed to battles in which lies, flattery and the occasional petty insult served as the combatants' chief arms. Yet with the aid of Anarietta (much better acquainted with this type of combat - mean retorts being her weapon of choice), he managed to blend into the members of Beauclair's boheme who had assembled and mingle largely unnoticed. Together, the duchess and the witcher searched for the Cintrian. He had reportedly arrived for the evening with the famed singer Cecilia Bellante on his arm. Alas, poor Cecilia had not known the evening would end in tragedy for her. Geralt found her, her throat cut just moments before, and set off in pursuit of her murderer.
The Cintrian had appeared that evening to steal the Heart of Toussaint, a ducal jewel in the possession of Orianna, the soirée's host. The witcher could not interrogate the thief, as he had died tragically while attempting to make off with his loot. Yet he had left behind a clue leading to Dun Tynne Castle, which the witcher made his next destination. Yet the assault on this fort manned by many knights would not prove easy. Ironically, Anna Henrietta made this so by giving Geralt an additional objective. You see, the thief had first obtained a barrel of ducal wine and then attempted to pinch a jewel that had in the past belonged to Syanna, Anarietta's sister. The fact of said sister's existence surprised me as much as it must surprise you, my readers. Who knew Anarietta had a sister, and what's more, one even more fiery than the duchess herself? These facts caused the duchess to suspect Syanna could herself be at Dun Tynne. So she ordered the witcher to go there and find her. As if these revelations were not enough, the evening ended in a philosophically complex scene featuring the duchess of Toussaint, several ancient higher vampires and a grumpy witcher sharing a table. The conversation proved both lively and varied, spanning matters ranging from the intricacies of combating monsters to the propriety of wearing deep-cut formal dresses.
