Us is an Intellect Devourer NPC and Temporary Companion during the Prologue of Baldur's Gate 3. It can be found aboard the Nautiloid, trapped inside the head of an Elf named Myrnath.

Encounters[edit | edit source]

Prologue[edit | edit source]

Us can be found trapped inside the head of Myrnath, who is strapped to a chair with the top of his skull removed. The player can find them taking the elevator in the second room aboard the Nautiloid. The player will have to pass an ability check to free it. When freed, it will initially start with the Newborn condition: temporarily lowering its max HP to 11 and its AC to 7. This only lasts a few turns, however.

If the player also passes the Dexterity ability check "Mutilate the brain.", Us will end up LobotomisedLobotomised, reducing their Intelligence from 12 to 8. This condition is permanent and cuts Us from the rest of the hive mind, allowing the player to attack other Intellect Devourers on the nautiloid without turning Us hostile. If you fail the dexterity check, Us will flee instead, turning it and all other Intellect Devourers hostile.

The Dark Urge will have Advantage Icon.png Advantage SPLIT-SPLATTER! on this Dexterity check.

Once freed, Us will urge the player to head to the Helm Room. Options to either tell Us to go away, to attack it, or to ask it to join the party will present. Us will agree if asked to join.

Us will disappear after the crash.

Act Two[edit | edit source]

Us can later be found in the Morgue within the Mind Flayer Colony. It has been labelled an aberrant and as a result is caged. If you free it, you receive Summon UsSummon Us, allowing you to summon Us as an ally once per short rest.

If Us died aboard the Nautiloid in Act One, they will not appear in the cage during Act Two.

Below are the following changes made to Us as a summon:

  • Hit Points are raised to 55.
  • Gains resistances:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Us is one of the few characters with multiple voice actors.
  • When the player enters the Helm Room, the Mind Flayer there will order them to connect the transponder. Should Us be the only one to enter the room, the mind flayer will have specific dialogue to order Us to find a thrall instead.
