All of the games in the series—with the exception of the original Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast—feature optional romance paths for a selection of NPC companions. All of these come with additional dialogues and some with additional quest lines/ encounters that can only be accessed through the romances.

The entirety of the series offers a dozen different romancable characters. Eight for male protagonists and six for female ones, ten offer oppossite-sex relationships and four offer same-sex relationships.

Girdle of Masculinity/ Femininity & Wild SurgeEdit

It is possible to bypass the gender restrictions on romances if the protagonist's sex is changed through magical means such as the Girdle of Masculinity/ Femininity or a Wild Surge. The change doesn't have to be permanent, it is enough to switch, start the romance and then switch back again. However, the companion in question will still refer to the protagonist as whichever sex they officially can romance (i.e. Anomen will always think the protagonist is a woman, even if they are male).

Baldur's Gate & Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword CoastEdit

The protagonist can not romance any of the companions in the game.

Inter-character relationships:Edit

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced EditionEdit

The Enhanced Edition adds three companions the protagonist can get closer with, but these romances only act as an introduction to the ones in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. There are two options for either gender, but only male protagonists get both an opposite and a same sex option, female ones only have the opposite sex option.

Additional inter-character relationships:Edit

  • Dorn's former companion Dorotea tried to seduce him back when they where still traveling together.

Baldur's Gate: Siege of DragonspearEdit

This game features eight different romancable characters, four options for female protagonists and six options for male ones. Unlike in the previous game, these romances all go to the point where a legitimate relationship between the companion and the protagonist is formed (in one form or another). There are both opposite and same-sex options for either gender.

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn & Baldur's Gate II: Throne of BhaalEdit

This game first introduced romances to the series. There are three options for male protagonists and one option for female protagonists. All of these romances are for the opposite sex only and all come with racial restrictions. That means that there are no romances for female dwarf, gnome and half-orc protagonists or male dwarf protagonists.

It should be noted, that Jaheira's romance is broken and can usually only be completed via cheat code.

Inter-character relationships:Edit

  • Jaheira is now a widow, due to Khalid's untimely death in between games.
  • Coran is still running after Safana.
  • Garrick is unsuccessfully courting a paladin of the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart.
  • Edwin & Viconia will heavily flirt with each other.
  • Aerie & Haer'Dalis will start dating each other if they are in the party at the same time.
    • If the protagonist is romancing Aerie, he will eventually clash with Hear'Dalis.
  • Jan Jansen is in unrequited love with his childhood sweetheart Lissa, who married another man.
  • Korgan will (unsuccessfully) hit on a multitude of the female companions, especially Mazzy.
  • Keldorn is in a broken marriage with Maria.

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced EditionEdit

The Enhanced Edition continues the romances that have been started in the first game. However, at this point there is no direct continuation for the romances started in Siege of Dragonspear, which leads to a mild disconnect between the romances in SoD and BG2:EE.

The additional romances introduce a same-sex option for protagonists of either gender and come with no racial restrictions. There are three options for female protagonists and two options for male protagonists.

TriviaEdit

  • Haer'Dalis was originally meant to be romancable in Baldur's Gate II, but the romance was cut because of time constraints. [citation needed]
  • Dorn Il-Khan is bi-/pansexual and the first officially queer character in the series.
    • However, some of Safana's voice lines have her flirt with the player in the first Baldur's Gate, no matter what the protagonist's gender is. But Siege of Dragonspear confirms her to be hetero.
    • Hexxat is the first lesbian character in the series.
    • Glint is the first gay character in the series.
  • Baldur's Gate II was the first game by BioWare to feature romancable characters. A feature which would become a staple of the company.
