Hervis Daubeny is a character that appears in For Honor's singleplayer campaign.
Hervis Daubeny was a warchief and the former master of The Warden in the campaign. He was a former knight of the Blackstone Legion but he only remained with the Legion for one season before leaving and taking what he could from the Blackstone Legion in the process. Enraged by Daubeny's theft and desertion, Apollyon sent Holden Cross to punish him. Daubeny's forces were overwhelmed and Cross challenged the former Blackstone to a trial by combat. Seeing that he was no match for Cross, he called the notion of such a duel as an 'execution'. Cross presented his second, Ademar, as a replacement combatant and Daubeny chose The Warden as his. The Warden emerged victorious, and Cross spared Daubeny after knighting The Warden as knight of the Blackstone Legion and giving him/her Daubeny's sword.
Daubeny appears to be a coward and occasionally arrogant individual. When he dispatches an enemy Warden, he postulates to his nearby soldiers that "that is how it is done- you see?!". But when challenged to a trial-by-combat by Holden Cross, Daubeny refused, likening Holden's demand to an execution rather than a trial. When this prompted Cross to nominate Ademar as his second, Daubeny proceeded to choose The Warden as his second rather than face Ademar himself.
- There is a theory that Hervis Daubeny is actually the superior combatant to Holden. This theory apparently states that when Daubeny said "that's not a trial, that's an execution" he was referring to Holden Cross being the one that would get executed.
- The name Hervis was derived from the Breton given name Haerviu, which meant "battle worthy", from haer "battle" and viu "worthy".
- The surname Daubeny was most likely derived from the French surname Daubney. Daubeny was a surname for those from any of the various towns in France called Aubigny, derived from the Gallo-Roman personal name Albinus. Albinus is a derivative of the name Albus which means "white, bright" in Latin.
