Boholt was the oldest member and also the leader of the Crinfrid Reavers, a group of mercenaries hired by King Niedamir to take part in the hunt for Myrgtabrakke, a dragon outside Barefield. The two of his compatriots were Kennet and Gar.
By the time of 1271, when Kennet and Gar met again with Geralt, they could tell him only a sad tale of what became of their leader after the dragon hunt. They said to him that Boholt lost his memory after taking a spill and hitting his head on a rock and while he could "still be a beast in battle", he did nought much else and even lost his interest in women. A few years afterward, the Reavers grew in numbers with Boholt, Kennet, Gar and, to some extent, Newboy remembered as quite a legends.
- In The Hexer (Movie and TV series), Boholt was portrayed by Marian Glinka.
- Early concept art from the The Witcher (PC) suggests that Boholt was considered as a character, but did not make the final cut.
