Count Beledal was a rich Koviri nobleman who recorded his excursions with a curious device that turned his pictures into paintings. Throughout his travels he was guarded over by Vilmar and another knight but when in Toussaint he specifically requested the witcher Geralt's assistance.
It's later revealed that his daughter, Clarissa, became bedridden after falling off a horse and was therefore unable to go on anymore trips. To make her feel better, Beledal then started using his device to capture scenes throughout the world to give to her every time he returned home. In particular, she's very fond of peacocks and why Beledal wanted to capture pictures of them.
