- "¿Honor entre ladrones? No somos ladrones. No tenemos tales restricciones."
- —Sin rostro anonimo.
Todas las bandas de herrimaults tienen un líder; un grupo se forma casualmente, o bien surge un líder o el grupo acaba dividiéndose. Las bandas de herrimaults que prosperan siempre están dirigidas por un sin rostro, un individuo sumamente experimentado en la defensa de los derechos y de la justicia por medios poco convencionales.
A diferencia de los jefes de forajidos convencionales, los sin rostro casi nunca han de preocuparse por la posibilidad de que sus propios seguidores les apuñalen por la espalda. De igual modo, la mayoría apoyan a los sin rostro potenciales de su banda para que funden sus propios grupos. La ética tiene sus ventajas.
Por otro lado, tienen que alimentar a su banda, encontrar refugio y enmendar injusticias, todo ello sin infringir el código ético que se han marcado a si mismos. Con el tiempo, algunos acaban sucumbiendo a la presión.
La mayoría de los sin rostro desarrollan un aire misterioso, para lo que se ayudan vistiendo una oscura capucha que oculta sus rasgos. De algunos se rumorea que son poderosos nobles, incluso caballeros del Grial, que enderezan entuertos a los que no pueden atender públicamente.
Algunas mujeres también son sin rostro, pero para ello tienen que hacerse pasar por hombres.
La vida diaria Editar
Most commoners believe the faceless and their men are mere bandits, lurking within forests and springing out to attack anyone who ventures too close to their hidden base. This is completely inaccurate, however. Faceless are men of principle and discipline, and hold their followers to the same standard. They are very careful about their victims, and spend much of their time preparing for each attack.
Each morning, after breaking fast with his men, a faceless scouts his surroundings, making sure his camp is safe from detection. Then he ventures into the nearest town or village to seek the latest news. He goes in disguise, of course, though for a faceless this usually means removing his concealing cloak and wearing a normal labourer or farmhand’s clothes. After listening to local gossip, the faceless seeks out his next intended victim, watching the man from a distance to study his habits, his defences, and his method of carrying his ill-gotten wealth.
The faceless returns to his band in time for the noon meal, bringing fresh supplies with him. He gives his men orders, tasking several with patrolling the area, others with common tasks like washing clothes and repairing weapons, and others he directs to scout out paths for their next ambush. Then he returns to his study of the next victim, often tracing the path he expects the man to take through the forest so he can determine the best place for the attack. By nightfall the faceless is back with his band, making sure there is enough food for the evening meal, checking again to be sure their camp is secure and well-hidden, and resolving any disputes that occurred during the day.

The Hooded Blade is known and feared throughout the forests of Bretonnia. Many say he is not human at all, but some sort of dread wraith, a powerful spirit charged with a fearsome task and unable to rest until it has been discharged. Those who have seen the Hooded Blade are usually too terrified to describe him or even to speak of the encounter except in quick whispers. What is known, however, is that the Hooded Blade is tall and thin, and shrouded in a long, deep crimson cloak with a hood that completely conceals his features – some claim his eyes glow within the hood’s depths, but others say they have seen no such supernatural mark. The Hooded Blade wields a hand-and-a-half sword, gleaming, and unadorned. Supposedly he does not use a scabbard, drawing the sword from his cloak whenever he needs it, even if such a long weapon could not be concealed beneath the garment. The Hooded Blade has a small, dedicated band of followers, and their victims are always corrupt lords who mistreat their slaves, servants, and serfs. No one knows what the Hooded Blade does with the money he steals from such men, though rumours claim many villages have found abandoned wagons full of food and other goods sitting in the town square at dawn.
