Fulko Artevelde was the one-eyed governor of Riedbrune, famous committing atrocities in his fight against crime which targeted armed gangs and bands. His disfigured face served as a reminder of the past tragedy he had survived, and likely spurred his extreme methods. Fulko learned from Angoulême of the plot to kill Geralt by the Nightingale band led by the half-elf Schirrú. Despite his extreme dislike of the witcher, he informed the witcher which allowed for a turning of the tables.
