Korgan Bloodaxe is a chaotic evil dwarf berserker and a potential companion.BGIIToBBGII:EE

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn & Throne of Bhaal Edit

Recruitment Edit

Korgan is available to recruit from Chapter 2. This dwarf can be found in the Copper Coronet inn in Slums area, like Anomen, Nalia and Clara. He joins the party to find a book which was written by the lich Kaza.

Subquest Edit

Relationships Edit

  • He despises Aerie for being physically weak, and will eventually belittle her to the point where she demands that the player character remove Korgan from the group or she will leave 
  • Korgan despises Nalia for the same reason, but won't actually fight her  
  • He appears to be attracted to Mazzy Fentan, and will occasionally have banters where he hits on her 
  • Keldorn has a few interesting banters with him, involving the dichotomy of good and evil and even seems to admire Korgan's power while admonishing his dark nature and bloodthirstiness 

Gameplay analysis Edit

As a dwarf berserker with 19 constitution, Korgan enjoys a -5 bonus to his Death, Wands and Spells saving throws, as well as a +5 bonus to his hit points every level, up to level 9.

His Enrage ability is invaluable when fighting liches as it grants him 60 seconds of immunity to Imprisonment, which liches use a lot.

He's the only dwarf companion in game, the only character who can use the Dwarven Thrower warhammer without Gorion's Ward also being a dwarf or a thief with the Use Any Item high-level class ability.

Korgan has the following items when he joins: a battle axe +1, 20 Throwing Axes, splint mail, a Helmet and a Small Shield. He starts out with 5 proficiency points in axes.

In-game biography Edit

When asked about his past, Korgan growls that unless you want to end up like the members of of his last scum-sucking, traitorous party, you'd best keep your over-curious nose to yourself. Seeing as the dwarf is only slightly short of a necklace of ears in proving his enjoyment of slaughter, you decide to obey his request.

Personality Edit

For the most part, Korgan is a crude, unpleasant, bloodthirsty brute and unbecoming of a typical dwarf. However, there are certain conversations that can reveal a slightly more thoughtful, sophisticated, and even soft side to him (some of the later conversations he can have with Mazzy, for example). His desire to kill largely overshadows this other side of him, however.
