Anselm of Aedirn noble knight and aedirnian royal guard (along with Himsbach) who shielded his king with his own body unto his last breath. He died fulfilling their duty and shall be remembered for his valor.
The Witcher 2 Digital Artbook description Edit
Though in the scene as a whole these royal guards are mere background figures, they are as detailed as any primary character. Both men-at-arms wear chainmail and breastplates, which meant their clothing needed to be animated differently than that of the other fight participants. Due to the effort we put into creating them, we decided these initially nameless defenders of the king deserved mention.
