Sir Ignatius Verrieres was Lord of White Orchard and Baron of Amavet Fortress, who detained and interrogated the witcher Kolgrim of the School of the Viper over an alleged kidnapping of a boy. Scared by the coming war, he fled from his domain (likely to Redania) and his castle and lands become the temporary hold of Nilfgaardian general Peter Saar Gwynleve.
