Lae'zel is a Companion in Baldur's Gate 3. Companions have unique backstories and can assist the player by joining their party. 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.

Lae'zel is a ferocious Githyanki warrior, mighty even by the standards of her mind flayer-hunting kin. Faced with transforming into the monster she's sworn to destroy, Lae'zel must cure herself and prove that she is worthy of wielding the silver sword of a Kith'rak.

Where to find Lae'zel

  • You'll find her for the first time during the Prologue aboard the Nautiloid. After completing the first section of the ship, while you are walking outside she will jump over you just before the first fight.
  • She will leave your party at the end of the Prologue and must be recruited again. To do this, you must explore the starting area near the Cathedral Ruins until you find her being held prisoner. Free her to recruit her for your party.
  • Should you set camp before encountering Lae'zel, she will free herself and attempt to find her kin on her own. As a result, she can be found dead near the Githyanki raiders.
  • If Lae'zel dies on the Nautiloid and you don't resurrect her then you can find her dead about 35 meters ahead of where you land on the shore and you're unable to revive her then.

      I found it surprisingly easy to romance her, on my latest play, while still being a good person - saving Arabella, making sympathetic choices, etc. Of course, I did skip a few little things that probably would've lowered her approval with the choices I'd have made, but doing things that the whole party approved of - killing the dead dwarf's parasite, making Crusher kiss my character's feet instead, etc., seemed to be enough. Along with letting her speak for herself, during her conversations with Zorru and the Gith party.

            Approval up by mocking Elegis for being scared of goblins. Elegin is near the entrance to the tiefling camp

              You can kill her on the Nautiloid wich once you crash her body will be in the debris (you can loot her on the ship too) You will loose both however if you decided to shove her to her death off the boat. (FIrst meeting I used the "attack" option on the left in the dialogue as it felt in character against someone who just threatened me on an hostile ship and first turn I yeeted her)

                I did not find this companion until i had cleared almost everything else.
                When I looked up wtf she was as I saw some youtubes with the fighter I went to the location.

                There was 2 dead bodies (not the companion) and the cage was destroyed as if she got out.

                Now I have no idea where to find her......

                So, if you want this companion get there early :)

                  There are several options that increase approval by playing the Githyanki race as well, including most options to other NPCs that extol the virtues of the Githyanki and Vlaakith.
