Lae'zel is a Githyanki warrior, who appears in Baldur's Gate 3 as a side character or origin character. She is also available as a companion. She'll join your party automatically while escaping the Nautiloid, and will be able to be recruited again after the crash. You will find her captured by two Tieflings and have to rescue her.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

As a Fighter, Lae'zel should be at the forefront of most combat situations. She can easily tank damage and deal major damage back to enemies in return. At level 3, Lae'zel gains a martial archetype, which allows her to broaden her list of martial abilities or diverge into something different.

Background[edit | edit source]

Lae'zel is a Githyanki Warrior, originally from an Asteroid in the Astral Plane, known as "Stardock" (or "Crèche K'liir" to Githyanki). Before the events of Baldur's Gate 3, Lae'zel was captured at an unknown point in a time and from an unknown location, by Mind Flayers. Not much is known about her life prior to this, however, as she is a young, low-ranking Githyanki, it can be assumed she was spending most of her time in Crèche K'liir and conducting raids on Toril. After being abducted, she is encountered by the player on the Nautiloid. They join forces in order to commandeer the Nautiloids transponder and escape.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Lae'zel is depicted as xenophobic, arrogant, and quick to anger. She is proud of Githyanki, and frequently makes comments to the party detailing Githyanki customs and the nature of her people. In her mission to remove her Mind Flayer parasite, she does not hesitate to intimidate or harm those who would step in her way. She also approves of evil-aligned actions from the player, such as betraying Astarion to a vampire hunter. She is fiercely loyal to Vlaakith, the queen of all Githyanki.

During the Party, regardless of side or approval, Lae'zel's first important romance scene can happen. She will commend the player's martial prowess and offer intercourse - no strings attached. If the player agrees, they will later encounter her inside the altar room, naked. Lae'zel will then demand the player to submit, where they can either comply or success an Intimidation roll to make Lae'zel submit instead. A rough sexual scene will then happen.

Regardless of who takes charge, the player will wake up next morning - in pain. Lae'zel will insist it was just for pleasure and might or might not lay with the player again.
