|“||Tempus! Give us victory!||”|
Branwen is available from Baldur's Gate Chapter 2. She can be found at the Nashkel Carnival and will offer to join the party once you use a Stone to Flesh scroll to free her from her petrification state.
She also appears in the Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn tutorial, she explains how to turn undead and use priest spells.
With a Wisdom score of 16, Branwen can have two extra level 1 and level 2 cleric spells which are very useful.
She also has the special ability, Spiritual Hammer, a level 2 cleric spell, which provides multiple uses and replenishes whenever the party rests. As a result, she can freely use the spell multiple times between rests without taking up level 2 memorization slots.
She has no items when she joins the party.
- Enhanced Edition note: companions who are under-leveled at the time of joining will be given a certain amount of experience points (XP) for you to manually level them up to gain more control of their status.
|“|| When asked about her past, BRANWEN reveals that she left her home of Seawolf in the Norheim Isles at an early age. She was apparently reviled by her own people for wanting to become a priest, a station reserved exclusively for the men of the village. She harbors no resentment, realizing that her faith must face such tests or be worthless.|
She traveled the coast, offering her services to local militias, and eventually came into the employ of an adventuring troup in the Nashkel area. Branwen had no idea that the group was participating in banditry, however, and on their first raid, she balked at attacking a caravan of unarmed merchants. She rebelled, and a mage named Tranzig turned her to stone in the ensuing fight.
Despite the unfavorable outcome, Branwen feels that Tempus views her actions approvingly. To attack those that are unarmed is the basest of villainy.
