All Baldur’s Gate 3 Alfira Encounters, Can You Romance Her?

The bard Tiefling hides a unique interaction and some goodies for you in Baldur's Gate 3.

Alfira is a Tiefling NPC and a bard you will encounter in Druid Grove during Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3. She is extremely passionate about music and wants to complete her song. She is also involved in unique story content if you play Dark Urge.

In this guide, we will examine all the encounters you can have with Alfira across multiple acts of Baldur’s Gate 3 and whether you can romance her.

Alfira Encounter in Act 1

Alfira can be found on a cliff (X: 284, Y: 494), watching over the Druid Ceremony inside the Sacred Pool. To reach the sacred pool, you can Fast Travel to the Emerald Grove Environs waypoint. Once there, take the straight path ahead, passing by the pool.

From where the path diverges into two, take the left one, climb up the slope, and head to the South. On this path, you will encounter Alfira trying to compose a song.

Talk to her and encourage her to complete the song. Use the following dialogue options.

  • What is the song about?
  • What would your teacher say if she were here?

This will result in a small cutscene where Alfira will sing her song for you.


If you are playing as Bard and have proficiency with performance skills, you can pass a couple of DC10 and DC15 checks to obtain a lute from her. Then, you can play alongside her for a very different interaction.

Alfira Encounter in Act 2

Once you rescue Halsin and kill the Goblin leaders, all the Tieflings from Druid Grove will move to the Last Light Inn. She is present right next to the door. Upon talking to her, she will tell you that her friend Lakrissa has been abducted by the cultists and taken to the Moonrise Towers prison.

This will start the Save the Tieflings side quest. You can save many more Tieflings alongside Lakrissa from the prison. Once you save her, return to the Inn and talk to Alfira again. She will reward you with the Potent Robe, 460 gold, multiple scrolls, and potions. This robe is best for Warlocks and Sorcerers.

Alfira Encounter in Act 3

If you save Lakrissa from the Moonrise Towers, you will meet her once more in the Elfsong Tavern in the Lower City’s northern region. She will tell you Alfira is on the same building’s roof (X: 70, Y: -17).

As you find and talk to her, she will thank you for saving her and her people. She has become more confident in her skills by being encouraged to complete her song. She is now running a Bard school. As thanks, she will gift you her Very First Lute.

Alfira Encounter as Dark Urge

If you play as Dark Urge, things will turn out very grim for Alfira. After you meet Kagha regarding the ritual and the Tiefling child abduction, Alfira will appear in your camp at night during the next long rest. She now wants to be a part of your group.

A cutscene will be played where your character stands near Alfira’s dead body. Apparently, you couldn’t control your dark urge and ended up killing another innocent. Here, you can choose one of the following options.

  • Hide her body and wash your hands.
  • Lie to your party members.
  • Come clean, and don’t hide anything.

You can choose any option, but this will not bring Alfira back to life. The only way to save her is by sacrificing another innocent person. When you first meet Alfira on the cliff in Druid Grove, knock her out with a non-lethal attack after talking to Kagha.

Now, go to your camp quickly and take a long rest. Quill Grootslang will appear in your camp instead of Alfira and meet the same fate. When you meet Alfira next, she will still be alive and move to Acts 2 and 3 like the normal playthroughs.

Can you romance Alfira in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Sadly, you can’t romance Alfira or even earn her approval. While you can have sex with some NPCs like Mizora, you can’t have the same interaction with Alfira, either. She is completely off-limits to you in Baldur’s Gate 3.

There are no mod or official plans to recruit Alfira as a companion either. However, you can hire her as a Hireling with the help of Alfira as a Hireling mod from NexusMods.
