Lae'zel Origin Character Details

Lae'zel is an Origin character in Baldur’s Gate 3. Origin characters are playable heroes who have their own stories, desires, and attitudes toward the world in BG3. You can play as Lae'zel to live out her story, or you can choose to create a custom character and recruit her as a companion instead.

"Lae'zel was raised ready for a life amongst the stars, mercilessly conquering the cosmos as a githyanki soldier. Grounded, she must deal with a world she doesn't understand, and find a way to serve her people in a plane that despises her militant kin."

Where to Find Lae'zel

Players can recruit Lae'zel early on as a companion in Baldur's Gate 3 by finding her north of the Roadside Cliffs. This is one of the first areas you'll come across on the map after completing the prologue. You can find her right above the area where you first find Gale. If you see two tieflings standing around, she's near them trapped in a cage hung above. As you get close to the tieflings, you'll get pulled into a conversation where they're debating what to do with Lae'zel.
