Lae'zel is the first companion that you meet in Baldur's Gate 3. Like you, she's trapped on the Mindflayer ship and is looking for a way to escape. There are many interesting ways you can take your Githyanki companion's story throughout the course of the game. You can keep her on the path toward ascending to Vlaakith or steer her toward betraying the Lich Queen in favor of liberating her people.

If you're looking for the Githyanki creche in Baldur's Gate 3, here's where to find and enter it.

What happens to Lae'zel depends on what you decide to do with Orpheus before the epic climax in Act 3. Continue reading to learn about all the possible outcomes.

As you can likely guess, this article contains spoilers.

Kill Lae'zel

Baldur's Gate 3: Every Possible Ending For Lae'zel (4)

As you explore the beach you crash on at the beginning of the game, you'll find Lae'zel in a cage, trapped by two Tieflings. You can persuade the Tieflings to leave, freeing you to shoot Lae'zel down once they're out of sight.

You can also trick the Tieflings into shooting Lae'zel down themselves. If you go this route, you'll have the chance to side with Lae'zel and kill the two Tieflings or side with the Tieflings and kill Lae'zel. Obviously, if you choose the latter, you won't be able to recruit Lae'zel, and her story ends there.

If you decide not to do Lae'zel's main quest to find the creche, she will leave unless you can persuade her to stay with you. If you do the creche and refuse Vlaakith's order to enter the mysterious artifact, Lae'zel will turn on you if her approval isn't high enough. This will force you to fight and kill her.

Orpheus Becomes A Mindflayer

Baldur's Gate 3: Every Possible Ending For Lae'zel (5)

In Act 3, you discover that to defeat the Netherbrain, someone will have to become a Mindflayer, or you'll have to give the Netherstones to the Emperor. If you free Orpheus, he'll offer to make the sacrifice. If you let him, he'll request that Lae'zel take his dragons and fly to the Astral Plane in order to liberate the Githyanki people from Vlaakith in his stead.

If you encourage her to leave, she'll agree to his final wishes before you end his suffering as a Mindflayer with a knife to the chest. You can persuade Lae'zel to stay with you in Faerun with a DC 12 persuasion check.

If Lae'zel is still loyal to Vlakkith at the end of the game, she will elect to kill the traitor Prince Orpheus on her own. Her story will end with her calling out to Vlakkith before getting on a dragon and flying off into the Astral Plane to join her queen. In both these endings, you can join Lae'zel, but you must be a Githyanki to do so.

You Become A Mindflayer

If you decide to make the ultimate sacrifice and become a Mindflayer (or let Karlach do it), Prince Orpheus will be free to lead his people against Vlaakith, something he is more than a little grateful for.

After defeating the Netherbrain, Orpheus will ask Lae'zel to join him in liberating the Githyanki. She will happily agree and get on the back of his red dragon. While you can attempt to persuade Lae'zel to stay, she will refuse as she can't align herself with a Mindflayer. This isn't the most ideal ending if you're romancing your Githyanki companion.

Side With The Emperor And Kill Orpheus

As stated above, you don't need Orpehus to help you control the Netherbrain. You can turn into a Mindflayer yourself or give the Netherstones to the Emperor. If you choose the latter and side with the Emperor, he will devour Orpheus's brain, killing him.

This ending isn't the best for Lae'zel as it will make her an outcast among her people. She will accuse you of turning your back on the Githyanki, and while she will stick with you to see things through to the end, she will leave once the job is done.
