Meli is a tiefling NPC in Baldur's Gate 3. He is a pickpocket who works for Mol's children's gang in the Emerald Grove.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Act 1[edit | edit source]

If Aradin and his crew leave Emerald Grove, Meli can be found in the Tiefling HideoutX: 87 Y: 71, practicing pickpocketing on a dummy.

If Aradin's crew stays for a drink, Meli will spawn at The HollowX: 174 Y: 544 pretending to look at things in an open crate while the crew heads to a nearby table. The player can watch Meli steal something from Barth's pocket and run up the ladder where Barth will catch him. Initiating conversation with either one will allow the player the choice to intervene and protect Meli, convince him to return the locket, or let Barth do what he wants.

The player has three potential options:

  • Convince Meli to return the locket ( DC 5 Persuasion check or DC 15 Intimidation check) and he might be persuaded to reveal that he stole the locket because it reminded him of his mother's.
  • Let Barth strike Meli, the locket will fall out of his pocket, and the nearby guard Ikaron will come over to investigate the disturbance.

After the encounter, Meli will run to the Tiefling Hideout where he can be found near the practice dummy and Barth will return to his crew at the table below in The Hollow. If the player speaks with Barth afterward, he may reveal that the locket was given to him by his mother while she was on her deathbed.

Act 2[edit | edit source]

If the player convinced Rolan to stay and protect the tieflings, Meli will survive till Act 2 and can be found in the Last Light Inn. He and the other children will be attempting to cheer up a drunken Rolan after his siblings were kidnapped by cultists of the Absolute.

If Isobel is still alive after Resolve the Abduction, then he and the other children will huddle together and worry over Mol's safety now that she's been kidnapped by the Cult of the Absolute. The party can offer to look for Mol themselves and start the quest Find Mol. If Isobel dies during that quest, then the entire Last Light Inn will fall to the Shadow Curse and Meli will die.
