Gale is a Companion in Baldur's Gate 3. Companions assist the player by joining his/her party and have their own backstories and unique characteristics. They all have their own Classes and starting equipment. Companions can also be selected in the Character Creation screen allowing players to play from their point of view.

 

Gale has one ambition: to become the greatest wizard Faerûn has ever known. Yet his thirst for magic led to disaster. A Netherese Destruction Orb beats in his chest, counting down to an explosion that can level a city. Gale is confident he'll overcome it, but time is not on his side.

      Gale left my Party forever after a Wisdom Check failed to find out more what it is hes hiding about before i gave him a "yes" to hear him out about his hunger for Artefacts. So now i have given Astarion to the Monsterhunter and Gale has left Party because he does not find me trustworthy after having brought relationship to exceptional allready on him.
      I wonder where i meet him next time in the world because he needs to satisfy his Artefact hunger.

        [SPOILERS AHEAD REGARDING COMPANION AFFECTION]

        I seen a few people wondering how to gain affection of certain characters, and for those of you interested in starting a love story with... Well, anyone, I thought you might find my experience interesting:

        Originally, I didn't mean to romance any character at all. Not because there is anything wrong with them in particular, but none of them really felt like a good fit for my ranger lady. Astarion is cool and all, but his preference for "evil" choices made him a "nope" for this particular character's playthrough. Gale and Wyll just felt rather ... Ehm, not really into-the-wilds enough, so I just thought I'd ignore the entire affection-run entirely and simply roleplay my ranger and just deal with whatever negative/positives that comes along the way.

        So, all in all my ranger has a personality more suited for Wyll / Gale (meaning she's generally a "good" person, wanting so save innocents - but she dosn't hesitate to kill those she deem deserving of it). Most of my calls are neutral and I've had disapproves and approves coming in and out from all of my companions (I really thought I was pretty much on neutral ground at best with most of my followers). However, after defeating the goblin leaders, during the celebration in your camp - ALL 3 OF THE MALE CHARACTERS SHOWED ROMANTIC INTEREST AND WANTED TO SPEND THE NIGHT.

        I have not chosen any flirty options (that I am aware of) prior to this event - I did however let Astarion suck my blood on that one occasion, and then I asked him to stop at once. That's it. I even ignored my companions for most part, pretty much only speaking to them when they had the yellow " ! " above their head. Out of curiosity I accepted Astarions suggestions to spend the night - and the other two, Wyll and Gale, immediately expressed jealousy (literally out loud, but not in a immature way) when interacting with them afterwards (I interacted with ALL available NPCs during this evening just to see if there was any hidden conversations - the reason I talked to Astarion first is cause he had a " ! " above his head).

        So what do I want to say with this? Unless you're literally roleplaying a perfect-fit partner (or testing how much the affection scale matters) for a companion; just do your own characters roleplaying - you don't have to backtrack each time you see a "disapprove"-marker. It really does not appear to be very difficult to create a romantic relationship with a companion, even if your character and the companion don't see eye to eye on everything. (like I said, I've had negative and positive reactions from all of them)

          This page says you can give him the necromancy tome for his personal quest (consuming a powerful magical item) but I get no option to do this? I have the book, I have the gem to unlock it, I passed all the wisdom checks to unlock it and I still can't give it to him...anyone else know any reason why?

            I managed to get the Gale romance trigger today! Unsure how I did/why it triggered just yet but you can gain approval twice.

            It has to be at night/end of the day at camp. Talk to him (He'll have an exclamation point above him).

            1. Agree to have Gale teach you how to use magic/summon The Weave. (+1 Gale Approval)

            2. Imagine kissing him or imagine walking with him, holding hands. (+1 Gale approval if you choose one of these options)

            Unfortunately the romance scene is so buggy for most people at the moment but I hope this helps in the future! Let's go Gale romance!
