Siegfried is a knight of an unknown origin, though it is likely a simple tale which is why he does not boast of it. This knight joined the Order of the Flaming Rose so that he may clean up the world and make it a better place. Along his journeys eventually he was upon a quest to kill a cockatrice within the sewers of Vizima, the capital of Temeria. It was here that he first met Geralt, the two may or may not work together to slay the creature depending on the player's actions. Afterwards the two end up facing an assassin, he gives Geralt further aid before the two depart. From then on he mostly stays with the knights of his order, every now and then lending aid to Geralt if the two were allies. Depending upon who Geralt has or has not sided with, Siegfried may die in battle, live on, or even succeed the previous Grand Master of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Whether he survives the battle of Vizima is entirely up to the Witcher. Afterwards he would not appear until Geralt travels to Loc Muinne. Here he may be with the knights of the Order if he is their Grand Master, otherwise he will not appear. During the events that unfold he will help Geralt in dealing with a sensitive issue, and even if ordered to kill the Witcher he will turn a blind eye and have his men ignore him.
