The gentleman himself will hide until attacked. Leave him alone until all his men were sent away would be a good way to make the fight easier.

Geralt will face Roderick when the battle is over. The gentleman remains confused by his questions, he doesn’t know any hostages and told Geralt that Syanna is in the tower. It is to spice up the dish responsible for the stay of bandits in the castle.
