Peter Evertsen was a Nilfgaardian official. He served as an army bailiff during the first Northern war where he delivered a decree that called for the annihilation of Lyria and Aedirn. After the war, he was promoted to the position of imperial treasurer.

Peter Evertsen looked and counted and calculated. And added up the money. Peter Evertsen was the grand chamberlain of the Empire; during the war the army's chief bailiff. He had held that position for twenty-five years. Figures and calculations; they were his life.
