— Sorn, reassuring his sister, Nym

Sorn Orlith is a Seldarine drow sex worker employed at Sharess' Caress, where he works alongside his twin sister, Nym Orlith.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Hailing from the Underdark, Sorn was originally employed as a courtesan, and Nym as an artisanal masseuse. The pair fled the Underdark due to the matriarchy's mistreatment of men, ultimately coming to work in Baldur's Gate. Sorn seems to particularly enjoy his line of work, particularly fulfilling extreme and interesting fantasies; he remarks that Drow culture is obsessed with bondage, which became boring.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Services from Sorn or Nym individually cost 500 Gold, and from both together cost 1000. Completing Find the 'Stern Librarian' Ffion, then reporting back to Mamzell Amira and requesting a reward, will result in Mamzell Amira offering the player the drows' services; the player can then hire one of the twins for free, or both for 500 Gold.

Sorn and Nym Orlith can be hired by the player individually, or as a pair together with additional companions (if said companions are romanced.) If the player is in a romance with Shadowheart, she will reject the invitation if her final romance scene hasn't been triggered yet, as she wants your first time to be just her and you. After that scene, she will always enthusiastically agree to sex with Sorn, Nym, and the player character. Astarion, when romanced, will only agree after The Pale Elf is completed -- however, the narration notes that Astarion seems to be spaced out, not enjoying the act. A romanced Gale can be convinced to participate with a DC 25 Persuasion Check, but once the scene begins, he'll duck out and leave behind an Astral Projection to participate in his stead. Halsin, when romanced, will also always agree, and if romanced at the same time as Shadowheart or Astarion, can join in alongside them (if Halsin joins alongside another romanced companion and increases the number of participants to five, Sorn will comment that in Qu'ellarz'orrl custom, a group of five or more is "legally" an orgy, while four or fewer is simply a gathering.) Any other companions will reject Sorn and Nym's invitation.

Sorn's one-on-one scenes are brief and generally comical in nature. When hired alone, Sorn can be asked to do the following things:

  • Pretend to be Drizzt Do'Urden, to which he remarks "not again."
  • Provide an "unusual sensation", which results in him spilling spiders all over the bed.
  • To simply be as he is, which results in him calling the player character a prude before providing his services.
  • To use the Menzoberranzan Love Trick, which seems to simply be Sorn casting enlarge on himself.
  • To do missionary with the lights off. Sorn seems to particularly enjoy this. The narrator remarks at the end: "The drow seems to have the time of his life."

Once either or both of the twins are met in their room, the player character can also simply change their mind and decide not to go through with the act, which results in either sibling simply returning the fee paid.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In traditional Drow names, "Sorn" means "enchanted" or "spell".[1]
  • Sorn believes that snails are an aphrodisiac.
  • All of Sorn and Nym's sex scenes are largely voiceover with a black screen; the lights in the room are turned off as "part of the experience." As of Patch 5, an additional ending cinematic was added to some sexual encounters.
  • A glitch sometimes occurs if Scratch is summoned when your character and Shadowheart approach Nym and Sorn in the Drow Private Room to initiate the sex scene, in which Nym and Sorn roll for initiative and combat begins. Dismissing Scratch solves this problem.
