Sceleritas Fel is a Fiend in Baldur's Gate 3 who is integral to the Dark Urge's past. While he himself encourages his master towards evil, the Dark Urge can be resisted. He only appears within a Dark Urge playthrough, or if The Dark Urge is within a Multiplayer party.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Act One[edit | edit source]

During The Urge, the player character will suddenly find that they have murdered Alfira (Or Quil, a Dragonborn Bard, if Alfira is unavailable). Whether they embrace this murder or not, Sceleritas Fel will reveal themselves as their humble butler, giving small hints as to what kind of person the Dark Urge may have been. He actively encourages the Dark Urge to commit more deplorable acts of murder, claiming they should "Be true to yourself, my Lord." He will gift the player character with the The Deathstalker Mantle as a reward for murdering the Bard, and will leave them to their business.

Act Two[edit | edit source]

Sceleritas will appear again while in the Shadow-Cursed Lands, this time with a new task. He insists for the player character to kill Isobel, and by extension, cause the deaths of everyone within the Last Light Inn. If he is refused, he will appear once more to inform the player character that they will attempt to kill either their closest companion, or their lover, because they did not sate their urge, and will in fact encourage it in hopes to get The Dark Urge back into the good graces of "Father." He will express great disappointment if they try to resist.

If the player character kills Isobel, Sceleritas will visit them and bestow upon them the Slayer form, a powerful ability allowing the Dark Urge to take on the form of a monstrous, giant being with four arms, razor claws, and terrifying mandibles - an ability only given to the favoured of Bhaal.

Act Three[edit | edit source]

Sceleritas Fel appears again within the Temple of Bhaal to welcome the player character "Home." He is aware of the duel between the player character and Orin, and will personally open the door for them. It is clear that he and Orin are not allies, as Orin kills him frequently, up to three times a day, and Sceleritas would much prefer being killed by the player character. Once Orin has been defeated, several blades will appear from his body, seeming to stab through him. Within the reflection of his blood is the Avatar of Bhaal, who appears identical to Sceleritas, albeit with glowing red eyes, and a deep, imposing voice. The Avatar will offer the Dark Urge to become their Chosen, whether they have been resisting or indulging their urge up to this point.

Should the player character accept, the Avatar will grant the player character the Slayer form if they did not previously have it, along with one use of Power Word : Kill and will allow for the player to pursue controlling the Absolute in the name of Bhaal. Afterwards Sceleritas will be available at your camp. He will praise the player character for killing Orin and becoming Bhaal's chosen. Afterwards the player character will be able to ask Sceleritas questions such as the past and future of the player character (and romance partner if any were pursued), and more details on Sceleritas (with the latter being deemed unimportant in Sceleritas mind). Afterwards the player character will have the option to have Sceleritas stay silent or be permanently killed.

Should the player character refuse, the Avatar will drain the essence of Bhaal from the Dark Urge, killing them, before they are ultimately resurrected by Withers, free of the Dark Urge forever, ending The Urge. Afterwards Sceleritas will appear at your camp to voice out his disappointment and disdain for the player character, before eventually be relieved of being the player character's butler and be gruesomely killed.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • His first name derives from Latin "scelus", meaning "evil deed, wickedness"
  • Sceleritas usually cannot be fought in combat. If the party progresses past the point of no return in Act Two without satisfying The Urge, Sceleritas will wait in ambush outside Moonrise Towers to force the issue. If the party approaches stealthily with an ability to see Invisible creatures, it is possible to attack and kill Sceleritas in a single turn. However, he still turns up at the next Long Rest, unscathed and without mention of the incident.
  • If the player character wears Sclereritas' hat when arriving at the temple in act 3, he will mention this in dialogue, requesting the player character removes it for combat with a certain someone, in order to not appear as a "lowly servant".
  • According to Sceleritas, the worst thing the Dark Urge did in the past was give some coin to a beggar while heading to the Devil's Fee out of kindness. This act of kindness still gives Sceleritas nightmares.
