Codringher (d. 1267) was one half of the duo that formed the famous Dorian detective agency of Codringher and Fenn. However, many considered the two people to be one and the same person, Codringher. In actuality, Jacob Fenn did exist but due to his crippled status, stayed within a hidden room to research.
Being the main face of the detective agency, Codringher was known for finding any information (or burying it) as long as the price was right. He could suddenly get a long-term prisoner out of jail when evidence suddenly went missing or even turn up new information on a supposedly dead princess.
Insight on Ciri
Around 1266, he was approached by Foltest's spies who were searching for Ciri and Geralt of Rivia. Protecting the witcher and his ward, he told them Ciri had died three years previous in a refugee camp in Angren of diphtheria, suffering before her death.
In June 1267, he was informed by Dandelion of the mage Rience's escape in Oxenfurt, and later tasked by Geralt to learn what he could on Rience in the hopes of finding out what he wanted with Ciri. While most of the mage's background was missing, Codringher sold Geralt the information for 250 crowns, which did provide new insight into the mage's past before stating he could help the witcher make the problem disappear: to send a false Ciri that was of similar age and appearance as the real one, but the witcher refused. Codringher then promised to continue protecting Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer's location if agents were to contact him.
On the last night of the month, during the Thanedd coup, Codringher was looking over new information he had acquired, showing the carriers of the Elder Blood; proving one of Ciri's ancestors was the infamous Falka, who had cursed those present just before she was burned alive that one day one of her descendants would destroy them. After presenting the information to Fenn, Condringher decided he was going to try and take part in the dangerous political environment going on with this information, three visitors knocked on the door. Ever cautious, when asked by the visitors for Codringher he pretended to be a servant named Mikael Dullod, but the three, Schirrú, Millet and Nazarian, knew who he was and Schirrú stabbed him in the stomach, and then again pulling the blade up to his chest. They then found Fenn before setting fire to the agency on Rience's orders, as Codringher lay dying.
