Barsik is a cat in Baldur's Gate 3 who can be found outside Sorcerous Sundries in the Lower City.

Background[edit | edit source]

Barsik worships Sharess, originally known as Bast, patroness of cats. Sharess was often depicted with the head of a cat.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Without Speak with Animals Speak with Animals:

  • Meooow!

With Speak with Animals:

  • Hold, seeker! Have you come to swear yourself to Sharess by my paw?

Reply "Sharess as in Sharess' Caress?"

  • Yes and no. Your kind has lost their way in their worship of the Feline of Felicity - you only hold to her basest tenets.
  • Now - will you heed our Mother's call, and bolster her as she crushes the heathen Absolute beneath her divine paw?

Reply "Yes - I pledge myself to Sharess."

  • Yes! Yes! Together we shall spread the word of the wonder in her every pawstep!
  • I will sing her name in the streets, and you will bring her prayers to the suffering two legs instead of four.

Reply "I'm not sure if Sharess is the Goddess for me."

  • Sharess shall mourn your absence - but always honour your capriciousness as her own.
  • May your dusks be long and your hunger fleeting.

Clerics have an additional reply: "From one follower of a deity to another, I must respectfully decline."

  • Ah, a fellow priest. You may walk on two legs, but we still see eye to eye.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Barsik means "small leopard/panther" (affectionate) in Russian, and is a common name or moniker for (typically older) male cats.[url 1]
