Beau Duvall was a heraldic knight who had hoped to participate in the Knight's Tourney in Toussaint in 1275. However, shortly before the tourney, he had his hair cut by the famed hairdresser, Jean-Louis Ludovic, who cut his hair wrong. Beau was so embarrassed by it that he refused to participate and decided to kidnap the hairdresser and beat him up for making Beau miss his chance at winning the tourney.
- ...and points out it's not very chivalrous: Beau then decided to fight Geralt, who beat him.
- ...and says hair grows back: Geralt killed Beau and his four squires.
