Geralt of Rivial is a wanted man in Ofieri, with a bounty on his head for killing a royal member. Luckily, no one knows what Geralt looks like. Geralt has been disguising himself as a Witcher bodyguard named Lambert. In the background, Dandelion has been snooping around the palace, trying to infiltrate the inner-workings of the royal servants. All while he is not playing music or flirting. It’s the least he could do for getting Geralt into this problem.
