Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jewish leaders that it would be good if one man died for the people.

“You aren’t one of this man’s disciples too, are you?” she asked Peter. He replied, “I am not.”
It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.
