Cazador's four rules he enforces upon his vampire spawn, including Astarion

Cazador Szarr is a Vampire NPC in Baldur's Gate 3 who acts as a looming threat, specifically to Astarion, as he is his cruel and ambitious vampiric master.

Act One[edit | edit source]

While not making an appearance within Act One or Act Two, Cazador's influence is still felt. If the player is playing as Astarion, they can encounter a dream sequence involving Cazador, where he recites four rules he enforces amongst his spawn. Astarion as a companion may also show the player the scars on his back, which is revealed to be part of an Infernal Pact. What this pact entails is unknown, but he assumes it is extremely important to Cazador.

Act Two[edit | edit source]

While still not appearing in Act Two, Astarion can decipher the meaning of the pact with the help of Raphael. His scars are part of a ritual imparted to Cazador by Mephistopheles. When performed, the recipient of the ritual becomes Vampire Ascendant, a creature that retains all the power of a Vampire, but none of the weaknesses, including their weakness to sunlight and thirst for blood.

Act Three[edit | edit source]

Once in Baldur's Gate, the party can hunt down Cazador at Cazador's Palace. He is eventually found in his Dungeon, revealing that the ritual required not just the seven Vampire Spawn he sired, but rather thousands of others. The "meals" Astarion brought Cazador were not for him to feed on, but rather prepared and turned into spawn for use in his ritual. Upon encountering Cazador, he will reclaim Astarion, and begin his attempt to use him for the ritual. Should the player free Astarion, and defeat Cazador, Astarion readies himself to take over the ritual, and absorb the power for himself - only for Cazador to reveal that if he were to continue the ritual himself, he would simply be consumed for it, as he has the marks of the pact on his back, and the ritual will still take his soul as a result, as it requires an exact amount of souls. An important choice follows.

Convince Astarion to kill Cazador and stop the Ritual

Should the player succeed on a skill test, Astarion will not continue the ritual for himself, and stab Cazador to death, falling to his knees, and sobbing, finally free from Cazador's tyrannical fist.

Let Astarion finish the Ritual

Should the player allow Astarion to finish the ritual, he will connect to the player's parasite, and copy the scars on his back onto Cazador's own flesh, therefore fulfilling the requirements for the ritual, while allowing himself to remain alive. Astarion will then consume Cazador's, and all the the thousands of Vampire Spawn's essence to become Vampire Ascendant successfully.

Whichever choice the player decides on, Cazador ultimately dies.

History[edit | edit source]

Cazador became a Vampire Lord in the year 1276[1], claiming the position of master vampire of Baldur's Gate from Vellioth the Martinet[1].

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • During the Early Access, Cazador appeared with a beard. This is no longer the case, as Elves are unable to use Facial Hair options.
