Hemdall is a mythical hero. According to the beliefs of the inhabitants of Skellige, there is a magical golden rooster known as Kambi whose task it is to awaken Hemdall before the final battle of good and evil, known as "Ragh nar Roog". Hemdall is then said to answer that call and fight the forces of Chaos, which will inevitably end all of creation.
In the second expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there is a gwent card that bears his image and name.
Behind the scenes Edit
It appears that Hemdall is loosely based on Heimdallr, a god from Norse Mythology.
