Main article: Get Orin's Netherstone

Orin's Mother Helena is found in The Chosen's Room X: 96 Y: 991 in the Bhaal Temple.

Using Speak with Dead, the party can learn why she tried to kill Orin and who ordered her to do it. With this information you can prevent Orin from killing whoever she kidnapped without needing to pass any ability checks. Helena will reveal that Sarevok Anchev ordered her to kill Orin as a offering to Lord Bhaal. Wanting to become Bhaal's chosen, Helena attacked Orin, who retaliated and killed her instead. Helena will also divulge that Sarevok is Orin's father.

Footnotes[edit | edit source]

  1. While Helena is listed as human on her character sheet, a memoir written by Sarevok Anchev describes her as a "shapeshifting beauty", implying that she, like Orin, was a changeling or part doppelganger.
