Baldur's Gate & Tales of the Sword CoastEdit

Recruitment Edit

Safana is available from Chapter 1. She's found in the central wilderness of the Lighthouse area (3750, 2390). She will ask the party to help her find some treasure and will join them if they agree.

The party must have at least one male party member to receive Safana's request for assistance.

Quests Edit

Relationships Edit

  • She finds Ajantis attractive and will flirt with him if the two are in the same party. Ajantis seems to be a bit conflicted about how he feels about Safana, as he'll swing between being flattered by her advances and being offended by her shameless and immoral conduct. Safana's advances toward Ajantis are far more straightforward than her advances toward Kivan and Xan. She outright tells Ajantis she thinks he's sexy instead of relying on double entendres.
  • She's got a very interesting relationship with Coran. The elf is obviously attracted to her and will flirt shamelessly with her, but will often tease or insult her in the same breath. She will always rebuke his advances, assure him she finds him most unattractive, and unleash some pretty scathing barbs of her own at him. However, she is fond of him, and is quite upset if he dies, taking back all the bad things she's ever said about him.
  • Safana is rather condescending toward Edwin.
  • Eldoth finds Safana both attractive and intriguing and will invite her to share a bottle of wine with him. She doesn't turn him down.
  • Garrick responds poorly to Safana.
  • Safana finds Kivan attractive and will hit on him.
  • Safana will at one point suggestively ask Minsc to give her a foot massage. Minsc will inform her that she has not offended him, but she just does not understand the bond he has with Boo. After many of the same exchanges have taken place, an exasperated Minsc will finally respond with a threat, although he doesn’t seem to carry through.
  • Tiax is rude to Safana, but she really doesn't seem to care.
  • Safana finds Xan attractive and will hit on him, but he ignores her completely.

Gameplay Edit

Along with Ajantis, Safana's charisma 17 is the highest of any companion in the game, making her an excellent leader for neutral parties to gain store discounts and favorable reaction adjustments.

Safana has "Charm Person" as a special ability - the target must make a save versus spell or be charmed for 100 seconds.

She always has the following items when joining the party: a dagger, 10 throwing daggers and studded leather armor, except in Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition where her weapons are a Ninja-To and 20 Darts.

Biography Edit

When asked about her past, SAFANA spins tale upon tale involving fantastic liaisons with pirate captains, nobles, and royalty of all shapes and sizes. The consistent details seem to be that she grew up in the city of Calimport, surrounded by luxury. Her father was a very influential noble, and though she could have had anything, she apparently found herself too confined by her father's protective arm.
She ran away in her early teens with the help of the first mate of the pirate ship "Exzesus," and remained with the crew for several years as they raided up and down the Sword Coast. Eventually she tried to manipulate the captain and found herself in a lot of trouble, escaping when the ship was at port in Baldur's Gate.
She has many stories of her escapades after that, but if there is a grain of truth in them, you certainly cannot find it.

Quests Edit

Biography Edit

When asked about her past, Safana spins tale upon tale involving fantastic liaisons with pirate captains, nobles, and royalty of all shapes and sizes. Her most recent escapades seem to be truthful; she took up with an elf named Coran, and while the relationship seemed amusing for a time, she and Coran recently parted ways. She confides to you that Coran was "just too much. Wouldn't stop hanging off me in the most pathetic way." Always on the lookout for the next exciting adventure—and perhaps needing to leave Baldur's Gate for a reason she hasn't shared—Safana joined the expedition to Dragonspear for "as long as it remains amusing."

Dialogues Edit

Damn you to all Nine Hells, Coran, I swear I'm going to— Oh. Hello.
You know what I always admired about you, <CHARNAME>? Your keen sense of observation. Well, don't just stand there; come in.
That vile rake? Why would you even ask that?
Nice try, <CHARNAME>. I've spent the last month with that two-faced elf, Coran. A flattering tongue will get you nowhere. What do you want, really?
You wound me, <CHARNAME>. I don't know how I shall ever recover.
And now I have recovered. Hm. That was QUICK, wasn't it...?
I could never say no to you, <CHARNAME>. Then again, I can't think of a single thing you could ask that would make me want to...
Forget that lecherous pig, <CHARNAME>. I'm the woman you need.
There is nothing there to admire. Women—real women, not the farcical creatures who exist in your fanciful tales of "romance"—like nothing better than being taken at their word. A courteous man bows and walks away from a woman who's not interested.
Come, <CHARNAME>, let us take our leave of this lovestruck dullard. Or better still, let's bide a time and see him struck by something less abstract in nature. Like a frying pan.
In the last couple of days, I, ah, dipped my fingers into a few pockets. One held a bag of junk and this notebook. It contains details of the camp defenses, commander names, and bits of conversation.
Only a spy would make these kind of notes. We have a traitor in our midst.
"Robbed" is such a loaded term. I prefer to think of it as easing friends' physical burden. As to the question, they were all soldiers. I think.
Keep making jokes. It's not like a traitor could be undermining this entire effort even as we speak. Oh, wait, it's exactly like that.
Ha! Attitude at a time like this. I like it.
There is something I feel you should know. Don't get that look on your face; it's not the end of the world.
The fact of the matter is, you're a terrible kisser.
It's nothing you can't work on, but you've left me cold. All that bumbling about, trying pathetically to make love to me... it was embarrassing.
Ha! Well, I guess I can also tell you the last time we were at camp, I shared a glass of wine with Voghiln after you went to sleep.
He knew how to compliment a woman, that's for sure. I rewarded him with a kiss... or two... or three. We had to keep it quiet since you were in the tent right next to us.
You're lower than scum. You should have stayed in Hell where you belonged, you canker-blossom. I hope you rot in jail forever, you worthless scut.
Well, well, well. Look who comes crawling back.
You desire something from me? Most do...

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn Edit

Safana and Coran have been travelling the Sword Coast together and Gorion's Ward finds Coran at the house in Forest of Tethir. She has been kidnapped by wolfweres, and Coran asks the player character to rescue her. However, she has conspired with the wolfweres to kill Gorion's Ward because she wants to claim the bounty. Safana is killed by Lanshear the wolfwere, as she had other plans in mind for Coran.

Personality Edit

Her general demeanor is flirtatious, and sometimes her personality borders on provocative. Safana seems to have an overwhelming confidence in herself as a sexual entity. This is most likely due to her beauty (which many take notice of). If the player character dismisses Safana; he or she claims that the party does not need another thief, even if she is completely gorgeous. This is then followed up by the player character's inner monologue reading: "What am I saying?"
