Bald is badass. The attack on King Demavend intro cinematic of the game.
The story of The Witcher 2 takes place right after the final cut scene from the first game where an assassin attacks King Foltest in his own palace. After beating the assailant, Geralt noticed that the attacker has witcher-like attributes. A string of royal assassinations occurs, starting with the assault on King Demavend in the opening cinematic of the game, introducing the story of The Witcher 2.

After serving King Foltest for some time, Geralt chose to dedicate his loyalty to the king. However, the king becomes the target again of another assassin attempt, and this time, it did the trick. Circumstances turned the tides against Geralt and he’s now accused as the assassin of kings. Geralt is then set on a quest to clear his name and discover the hands behind the heinous acts.
