The Soldier

The Hero's Tail is a promotional cosmetic item for the Scout. It replaces the Scout's default hat with a white and gray ponytail hairstyle with hanging sideburns. The ponytail swings while the Scout is in motion.

This item has two styles. When painted, the style "Pigmentation Lost" colors the roots, while "Pigmentation Gained" colors the entirety of the hair. There are no differences between the styles when unpainted.

The Hero's Tail was awarded in Genuine quality to players who preordered The Witcher 2 before May 17, 2011.
