| ||Each has his song ... And each bites the blood-soaked earth his own way, just as it befalls him.|| |
|- Dennis Cranmer, The Lady of the Lake|
Dennis Cranmer was a dwarf and captain of Duke Hereward's guards. He was stocky, with flaxen hair and beard and steel-grey eyes. He was depicted as a very fair and impartial individual, if fervently dedicated to fulfilling his duties "to the letter". It is his adherence to this particular principle which saves Geralt, when the witcher is forced to participate in a seemingly unwinnable duel.
While Geralt and the captain do not initially seem to see eye to eye, they part on very good terms.
