Viconia demands Shadowheart's return.

Surrender Shadowheart to Viconia is a sub-quest of the quest Investigate the House of Grief in Act Three of Baldur's Gate 3. It can be started by speaking with Viconia in the House of Grief.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

Viconia asked that we surrender Shadowheart to her in exchange for her help defeating the Absolute.
  • We told Shadowheart that Viconia asked us to surrender her to the cult. We should return to Viconia and face her.
  • We withheld the truth from Shadowheart about what Viconia has planned for her. We should return to Viconia with Shadowheart.
Quest Complete
  • We surrendered Shadowheart to Viconia. We are now in alliance with Viconia.
  • We decided to not surrender Shadowheart to Viconia.
  • We wiped out the Sharran cult before Shadowheart could be surrendered to them.
  • We did not have the time to conclude matters with Viconia. We must press on.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Shadowheart is taken by the Sharrans.

This quest begins during Investigate the House of Grief if Shadowheart was not taken along. If the party successfully persuaded or intimidated Viconia into not taking back the Artefact, she instead demands Shadowheart to be given to her for 'reeducation.'

At this point, the party can return to camp and speak to Shadowheart:

  • I met your Mother Superior - she expects me to hand you over to her.
  • I met your Mother Superior. She's willing to negotiate for your parents, if you come with me.

Regardless of the choice, Shadowheart says she must confront Viconia. Return to the House of Grief with Shadowheart in the party. Viconia tells the party to make good on their deal:

  • She's all yours.
  • Never

If the first choice is selected, the Sharrans will take Shadowheart away and she will permanently leave the party. Viconia thanks the party and commits to helping in the final battle against the Absolute.

Quest Rewards[edit | edit source]

  • If Shadowheart is given over to the cultists, Viconia and her Sharran subjects become allies in the fight against the Absolute and be added to the list of allies in Gather Your Allies.
  • If Shadowheart had become a Dark Justiciar of Shar, she can replace Viconia as the Mother Superior. Then the same support in Gather Your Allies will be provided by Shadowheart instead.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Attempting to enter the Threshold of Loss door instantly causes the Sharran guard standing near the door (Fidelian Lamona) to become permanently hostile, which also makes Viconia and the rest of the cultists temporarily hostile. It's possible to enter and use the Chamber of Loss, dispatch the hostile guard, evade the rest of the Sharrans, and come back for dialogues.
