Free Company refers to army of condottieri officially acting independently of any government, for whomsoever will pay and thus that adjective "free". They regularly made a living by plunder when they were not employed by some monarch. This type of mercenary group is most popular in Redania.

In The Tower of the Swallow, king Esterad Thyssen of Kovir and Poviss released some political prisoners formerly known as the "Sly cats" on the condition that they support the efforts to push back the Nilfgaardian invasion at the battles of Mayena and Brenna.
