Baldur’s Gate 3: Lae’zel Romance Guide

Lae'zel is a fierce companion and much fiercer partner in the bed. Are you ready to take the challenge to woo her?

Baldur’s Gate 3 allows its players to romance chosen companions, the earliest of which is a ruthless fighter, Lae’zel. Hailing as a Githyanki soldier, Lae’zel is a warrior who prefers dominance and dislikes emotional displays.

Due to her harsh personality, she might come off as rude and mean initially, but it is all worth it if you want to romance her. This guide explains everything you need to do to gain Lae’zel’s approval and ultimately romance her.

Recruit Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3

The first encounter with Lae’zel takes place aboard Nautiloid during the prologue of Baldur’s Gate 3. She instantly joins your party to take down the mind flayer ship. Once the ship crashes, she will be nowhere to be found. Go northeast of the crash site on the Ravaged Beach to see her being imprisoned by two Tieflings.

You can either kill them or intimidate them into leaving Lae’zel alone. Break the cage and talk to her to recruit her. If you leave her here, she will reach the Druid Camp alone. You can still recruit her, but winning her approval becomes a bit more challenging.

Lae’zel Approval Choices
