Gameplay analysis Edit

A half-orc blackguard is a race/class combination off-limits to the player character generation.

His strength of 19 points means that he can serve as a good melee fighter and the best pack mule. His charisma of 16 makes him a decent "face" character for an evil party, granting you a good reaction adjustment and a minor discount on shop prices, matched only by Eldoth and Baeloth in BG:EE.

As a blackguard, his poison weapon ability was immensely helpful in battles with enemy mages, unfortunately this ability has been severely nerfed by later patches in EE, restricting the gameplay strategies and usefulness of both blackguards and assassins, who are the exclusive poison weapon ability users in original games.

His starting equipment is Splint Mail and a two-handed sword +1, Rancor, which gives him a +1 THAC0 bonus or +2 THAC0 bonus if he kills someone wielding the weapon in 24 hours. His proficiency points are two in each of Two-Handed Swords and the Two-Handed Weapon Style.

In-game biographyEdit

When asked about his past, DORN says little. Despite your aid in fighting his former comrades, he seems slow to trust you with much personal information.
From what you can piece together, the merciless half-orc hails from the north. You sense he has been betrayed in the past, and you expect he would exact harsh vengeance on anyone who betrays him in the future. His single-minded goals have left him with few interests or hobbies aside from combat.

Dialogues Edit

Hrmm. It's about time, <RACE>. Bring me another flagon of ale.
Then why do you bother me? Begone.
Listen carefully, <RACE>. If you continue to pester me, I will crush your neck with my bare hands. Go. Now.
SENJAK! DOROTEA! I swore I would crush the life out of you someday. Today is that day!
"Just following orders" is a coward's excuse, Dorotea. And I haven't forgotten what you said when I refused your advances.
You are both mewling cowards, turning on each other as easily as you turned on me. Half your men are already dead. You'll join them soon.
My name is Dorn Il-Khan, and I was settling an old score. I've been hunting those two for almost a year now. That's two down and two to go.
Very wise, <CHARNAME>. We shall cut a bloody swath across the Sword Coast!
I can hardly believe it. You, the spawn of Bhaal himself! Ur-Gothoz was wise to tie my fate to yours. Think of the rivers of blood we could spill across the realms!
You should embrace this path. What a gift, to have the blood of a dark god coursing through your veins! Do you not see the possibilities? We could silence all who oppose us! No one would dare call my lineage into question!
The source of your divine essence doesn't matter, don't you see? Bhaal is DEAD! I say that the blood of a god is the blood of a god. It matters not from whence it came.
Yes! I can see it now. A great fate awaits you. Do not forget those who have bled for you when you finally ascend.

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear Edit


Recruitment Edit

Dorn is available to recruit from Chapter 9, he's held captive by Caelar's crusaders and you'll find him inside a prison cell in the crusader camp at Boareskyr Bridge. Thankfully, releasing him won't draw hostage attentions from the crusaders, but any items you placed in his inventory prior to his departure in Chapter 7 (SoD) are gone and his level is reset to default.

Relationships Edit

In-game biography Edit

When asked about his past, DORN IL-KHAN shows little interest in sharing details of his past. That he serves a demonic master is no secret, but beyond his dedication to his patron, Ur-Gothoz, Dorn says nothing about himself. From offhand comments and insinuations, you gather that the half-orc suffered some painful betrayal in the past, an offense he has neither forgiven nor forgotten. According to Dorn, Ur-Gothoz commanded him to seek out and destroy an individual at the crusader camp during the ceremony of the Enlightenment. Dorn attempted this task but was thwarted and imprisoned instead. He now longs for vengeance against those who dared to cage him.

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition Edit

Related quests Edit

Relationships Edit

  • Will romance PCs of any race or gender
  • Anomen and Keldorn will both come to blows with Dorn due to the nature of his joining quest.
  • Will have banters with Rasaad, telling him that Ur-Gothoz sees potential within him and offering him power. Rasaad turns him down.
  • Has banters with Neera, telling her that the use of wild magic despite its dangers shows that she has the same destructive streak and lust for power as he does.

Gameplay analysis Edit

At culminating point of his companion quest you acquire the Abyssal Blade, a blackguard-only +3 two-handed sword with additional effects depending on how you chose to complete his quest chain. The effects carry over into Throne of Bhaal.

In-game biography Edit

The half-orc blackguard is a man more comfortable with action than words. When pressed, he gruffly alludes to an act of betrayal that set him upon a bloody path of vengeance with the assistance of his patron, Ur-Gothoz. Since eliminating those who betrayed him, he has continued to spread chaos, death, and destruction at his dark patron's behest. While Dorn seems to revel in carnage and bloodshed, when he speaks of his work for Ur-Gothoz, you believe you detect a note of dissatisfaction in his voice.
