Companions are characters in Baldur's Gate 3 who can join the player in the adventure throughout Faerûn. All companions can be Origin Characters, with the exception of Jaheira and Minsc, and recruitment of any particular companion is optional. The player character can start a romantic relationship with any Origin Character, regardless of race or gender.

As of Patch 9, there are five companions available for recruitment.

Companions are not to be confused with Camp Followers.

Origin Companions[edit | edit source]

Non-Origin Companions[edit | edit source]

Note: These companions are not available in Early Access.

Temporary Companions[edit | edit source]

There are also temporary companions during your adventure. These characters can be recruited into the player’s party during quests or through world interactions.

Unlike Camp Followers, temporary companions are able to join the player’s party and some can become a temporary playable character.

Recruitment Locations[edit | edit source]

Companions[edit | edit source]

  • Astarion: At the Ravaged Beach, continuing in the same path you fought the Intellect devourers.
  • Lae'zel: You'll first encounter her at the Nautiloid and then at the Ravaged Beach, close to Secluded Grove. She is being held hostage by Tieflings.
  • Shadowheart: She'll join you if you free her on the Nautiloid, and will later be unconscious close to the place your player landed. If not freed from the Nautiloid, she'll be at the entrance of the Dank Crypt nearby. If not recruited on the Nautiloid or the Dank Crypt, she'll be found inside the Secluded Grove. If ignored again, you'll encounter her either at the Goblin Camp or at the Mountain Pass.
