Conflict in Arcsea Edit
Gerd was called to the duchy of Arcsea at the request of Helena Lange-Haare, the heiress to the ducal throne, to remove her father from his usurped throne. Gerd however, insulted the heiress by behaving rude and turned down her offer. Despite the many atrocities and deaths committed by the usurper, Gerd became in league with him and committed various crimes in his service. In a surprising turn of events, Helena managed to remove her father from the throne and issued a warrant for Gerd's arrest. Gerd quickly fled to the Skellige Isles and arrived on the island of Ard Skellig.
Time in Skellige Edit
Just after arriving on Ard Skellig's shores, Gerd on was soon encountered locals pleading of a dragon near Elven ruins. Gerd set off to ruins and slayed the beast, smiling as it drew its last breath. A short time later he was contracted by Jorgen Iron Hand to kill a siren that had been attacking people in a cave in the northwestern part of Spikeroog. Gerd then sailed to An Skellig and arrived at Fort Tuirseach on the first day of summer; his appearance there had brought much joy to all in the castle. He then met the jarl of An Skellig, Torgeir the Red. Gerd quickly became friends with the jarl after draining more than a barrel of mead with him. Soon both witcher and jarl began going on hunts together and hosting feasts. Torgier asks Gerd to rid a striga that had made its lair in the ruins of Etnir. Gerd, who was moved by the jarl's lament, accepted the contract. Gerd then announced that must complete his prior contract of removing sirens from a cave in Spikeroog. The jarl then paid Gerd with a pouch full of coin and offered him the service of one of his men, Olven; he will to act as a guide to take him to Spikeroog and, should the need arise, fight by his side. Gerd and Olven then sailed to Spikeroog, arriving at the cave of the infestation. The sirens began to attack both men but were quickly shot down by Gerd using his crossbow who then finished them off.
