Ulrich von Gradwitz is always dressed as a successful business owner. He is always accompanied by a posse of men and a rifle. Ulrich is shown to be forgiving and humble with asking for peace, but can also be prideful, determined, and even murderous to get what he wants.
Ulrich has had a lifelong feud with Georg Znaeym and have alway fought over who owned the land. But in a moment of weakness, he swallowed his pride and asked for a truce, resulting in a friendship.
