Jaheira is a potential Companion in Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3). Companions assist the player by joining their party and have their own backstories and unique characteristics. They all have their own Classes and starting equipment. Some of the companions can also be selected in the Character Creation screen, allowing players to play from their point of view. Jaheira is not available as an Origin character, but rather as a party member.


This city is a blight on the landscape. Better to have let the land grow wild.

      can someone add a spoiler tag? i can't find how to edit the page or even if i can as a guest.

      it needs one in the "Where to find Jaheira in BG3" near the top of the page, where it mentions the boss fight she is involved in by name.

      massive spoiler for me since i'm in act 1 at the moment and have been finding lore about the guy suggesting he's long gone

        larians are no tradition keepers, she was all games fighter-druid, but here they have her as pure druid, ye ye sure

        • Anonymous

          I like keeping her as a Druid of the Land but taking 1 level in Cleric as War Domain. You get 3 extra attacks per rest, heavy armor, and access to useful stuff like Bless and Command, it also feels lore-friendly as she's a wizened adventurer so having a wide array of abilities suits her.

          Is it a min-max style build, no. But it's very versatile, highly customizable, having access to lots of crowd control options thanks to stuff like Sleet Storm, Wall of Fire, Spike Growth, and buffs like Haste and Bless, you also get to use Wisdom for all of your spellcasting and your melee attacks.

            You can recruit her even if you are an evil character. I sided with the goblins, killed the grove. Went to moonrise with the escort then back to light's inn. Durge dialogue killed Isobel and marcus fled with the body. Told Jaheira I did nothing wrong and she joined my camp. Was able ot recruit her at the end of act 2. (Killed nightsong also).

              People, who are sad about their favourite character from previous parts of the game is non romanceable. I do understand you well, but it is still far better than the cruelty they did to poor Viconia… She didn’t deserve it

              • Anonymous

                Something is happend after she joined to me. i said her to stay in the camp. Now i don't find her in my camp. But her tent is in my camp. is it a bug or she just left?

                • Anonymous

                  The letter you find in her house from Khalid is so depressing. They really twist the knife when you find his amulet too

                    There is a bug where if you betray the Druid Grove the Harper Ambush you were ment to run into at the Shadow Cursed Lands spawns at the Last Light Inn. This causes 5 Aggressive Harpers to roam around and when you bump into them they aggro you which causes EVERYONE to aggro you. I figured out if you go to the Sulune Cleric on the balcony and kill her this causes the Barrier to drop, you will be spawned in the center of the area where you will be aggro'd, BUT killing the cleric causes the barrier to drop. The Harpers will be shadow cursed and Jaheria will join you in the fight against the Harpers AND the Shadow Cursed Harpers. The downside of fighting ALL the enemies is tough, but this way you'll be able to recruit Jaheira without running into the problem of fighting all the Harpers. After you fight them all Jaheria will meet you at your camp if she isnt killed in the fight, good luck

                      There is a "Scroll of Ageless Body" located in Jaheira's secret room, you can question her about it and her chat loops in circles where she says it's incomplete and dismisses it. I think this was obviously cut content, the original plan was to turn Jaheria into a young body after doing some kind of side quest to complete the scroll, and then the player could romance her.

                        If you're playing as the Dark Urge and are accepting Bhaals offer after killing Orin, Jaheira will leave your party.

                          So it seems ole Jaheira here was supposed to be a romance option - at least, judging from some unused dialogues and references dataminers have dug out since release. I'm guessing it got cut as part of general content trimming the last act received as they pushed for release.

                          For shame, Larian - I'd take her over that degenerate goober Halsin any day of the week.

                            If you let Isobel be taken and keep Jaheira alive in the fight after, you can send her to your camp and she'll join your party even if you kill Nightsong. If Isobel is still in the village, killing Nightsong kills Jaheira.

                              Her AI in the first floor assault had her cast ice storm, jump form the top of the staircase on to the ice sheet she just created, fall on her behind and get slaughtered by everyone around her.

                                I'll crawl through the entire shadow-cursed lands with a moonlantern up my ass just to get a whiff of her mound.

                                  (Act 2 spoilers) seems like no one really acknowledges if you kill her and everyone else at Last Night Inn if you choose the aggressive path when meeting her - including Isobel who ends up grabbed by that flying thing once her HP is zero'd (same as when you're attacked by Thorm's thralls despite them not being there at all); Aylin never mentions it and even when talking to Zevlor after rescuing him the dialogue choices are all the same (aka they 'saved themselves' and 'his people needing him' despite the fact that you've murdered them all yourself lol).

                                  I guess the devs don't really expect anyone to go on a murder rampage at the first settlement you encounter and survive - or maybe dialogue conditions are just bugged atm.

                                    I think my game is just completely bugged out unfortunately, ive done like half of act 3 and the high harper quest never triggered... Ive exhausted every dialogue option and she never started her quest

                                          She's a character from BG1 and 2.
                                          In BG1, she's a harper and a friend of Gorion (a poweful mage from Candlekeep who is protecting two of the Bhaalspawns acting as their adoptive father: the main character and his somewhat stepsister Imoen). At some point the MC has to go on a secret journey with Gorion, while imoen is meant to stay in the keep, but on the road they are attacked by yet another Bhaalspawn: Sarevok (the main antagonist). Gorion is killed and tells the MC to find two harpers at the Friendly Arm Inn in his dying breath. MC escapes Sarevok's party, and soon found by Imoen who was following them in secret. They both go to the Inn and meet with the harpers who are none other than Jaheira and her friend soon-to-be husband Khalid. The two then join MC's party to protect him as tasked by Gorion, if anything bad happened, and they stay until the end (unless you **** around with their tolerance or send them off of course).
                                          In BG2, she is with MC from the beginning (along with Imoen, Khalid, Minsc and Dynaheir). They are all captured by a malevolent wizard named Irenicus (main antagonist), who plans to experiment on the Bhaalspawn to use their innate powers. When the MC wakes up, he's prisoner in Irenicus' lair. Imoen somehow escaped her cell and frees him. The also find Jaheira and Minsc in nearby cells. Minsc tells you they killed Dynaheir, so he failed his pilgrimage but swears to stay at MC's side, and so does Jaheira, but Khalid is nowhere to be found, although the party later finds his corpse, tortured to death, and Jaheira is devastated. When they make their way out of the dungeon they realize they're in the middle of Athkatla, capital city of Amn. Irenicus shows up and attacks the party, and Imoen attempts to protect them with spell. The issue is magic use is thouroughly reglemented in the city, and so a party of Cowled wizards, sort of independent magic police, capture both Imoen and Irenicus and teleports them in their magic prison, the Spellhold, and this starts the big journey that is to free Imoen.
                                          In this game, she has personal quests like many other companions. The first is cure her from a curse thrown by a slaver baron made poor by Jaheira and a band of Harpers years ago, the curse is ultimately broken by killing the baron (from your own hands or by bribing his mage goons) and retrieving the lock of Jaheira's hair he had and used as a catalyser. The second involves the Harper chapter of Athkatla, who decided the MC as a Bhaalspawn was a far too big of a menace and set upon killing him. Jaheira who still wants to honor her oath to Gorion, and conscious that it would only further fulfill Alaundo's prophecy (when all the Bhaalspawns die, the last one will be a vessel for Bhaal, the evil god of murder, to reincarnate) opposed the decision fiercely and flee with the MC, and ultimately they are forced to kill the whole chapter and Jaheira decides to leave the Harpers.
