Hereward invested a large sum of money into the Order of the White Rose, which later led to him receiving several of the knights into his service. He later sent Falwick and Tailles to arrest Geralt of Rivia at the nearby Temple of Melitele. He wished the witcher out of the duchy as he didn't want a man with such a reputation living in his city.
- The name "Hereward" is derived from the Old English elements here "army" and weard "guard". This was the name of an 11th-century Anglo-Saxon leader who rebelled against Norman rule.
- His character is probably based on prince Konrad I who brought crusaders into Poland.
