Herod's Treachery (territory class enhancement) card

I have a question about this multi-colored evil enhancement, specifically the last sentence.   The card begins with the text "Place on a Herod." My question is--is this mandatory?  Or could you place it on  another evil character?  Then it goes on to say that you may use any evil enhancements regardless of color (brigade).  I take it this refers to the Herod one places this card on.   Then, the final sentence reads "You may discard this card to force X Heroes to withdraw from battle (X being the number of good brigades in the battle).  Well I don't have a Herod, but I am blocking with Heroditus.  Can I play Herod's Treachery on her, knowing I won't get the 1st benefit of playing any color EE on her, but still use the discard ability to force the Hero (Martha) to withdraw--as the opponent has one brigade in battle (white)?   Or does that forst sentence--Place on a Herod--trump everything else following in the text?    Thank you.

Herod's Treachery, for reference.
Spoiler (hover to show)

Since it doesn't say "you may place", you have to place it on a Herod. Everything else depends on the card being placed.

It specifically says "That Herod may use evil Enhancements regardless of brigade", so that definitely refers to the Herod you place it on.

The withdraw only works while Herod's Treachery is placed.

Thanks again very much Aggie.  I guessed wrong on that one!

Is this because of the "Clarifications" in the REG entry for Place? So if you play it in battle with no Herod to place it on, is it just discarded right away, or does it stay in battle if, for instance, I wanted to use Grapes or Fearfulness or something like that?

If you play it in battle, it's treated like a normal Enhancement since it can't place itself, so it would remain. So using it to setup Grapes or Fearfulness works.

Everything else being dependent on the place doesn't mean it is discarded, it just means the ability doesn't really do anything if you can't place it.
