A fine group and a fine beer! Now all I need is a fine woman.
Voghiln, also known as Voghiln the Mighty or Voghiln the Vast, is a Neutral Good Skald from Luskan and one of the four new companions in Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear. He joins you in the fight against the Crusade and later re-appears as one of the gladiators in the Black Pits II.

Siege of DragonspearEdit

Voghiln the Mighty can be found at the far north-eastern section of the Troll Claw Forest alongside Jaheira (co-ordinates: x=3700, y=270). He will mistake you for a Crusader, but his Harper companion stops him before he can attack you. Jaheira then goes on to inform you about Khalid being trapped in the Bridgefort, which is under siege by the Crusade. Even though he is traveling with Jaheira, the game doesn't require you to bring both of them along at the same time. When recruited he is equipped with the following equipment: 

His weapom proficiencies are:

He knows the following spells at recruitment:

His default skills are:

Additionally, he has the Skald Song at his disposal, which gives every party member in reach +2 to-hit, +2 dmg and +2 AC.


Female Protagonist: Voghiln will hit on the protagonist, if they are female. The player has the option to start a romance with him.

Safana: These two will have an affair behind the protagonist's back.

In-game biographyEdit

When asked about his past, Voghiln speaks at considerable length of his travels in the North. Originally from Luskan, Voghiln felt the call of adventure and set out on a journey to the Spine of the World. For the next few years, he traveled among the northernmost countries, including Vaasa and the Silver Marches, building up his repertoire and his reputation as a skald.

Near the story's end, Voghiln hastily glosses over a bit where he decided to travel south for a time. No amount of persuasion convinces him to reveal why he truly left the North. Instead, Voghiln said, he came north chasing new adventures and new "womans."

Despite his fondness for drink and his propensity for chasing skirts, Voghiln is a brave and talented companion who is eager to see the crusade come to an end—mostly so that he can write about it.''

Black Pits IIEdit

Voghiln - this time under the title Voghiln the Vast - reappears as one of the gladiators in the new Black Pits.


Voghiln is stereotypical Viking-type: He loves to drink, he loves to fight and loves to have beautiful women around him. Ideally all at once. All of that is crowned with an over-the-top Saxon accent. And let's not forget that he likes speaking of himself in third person. Underneath his rude behaviour and his inability to be faithful however, lurks a funny and charming fellow who's got his heart in the right place.


  • Voghiln is one of the many characters in the Enhanced Editions, who is voiced by Mark Meer.
    • He is also one of the three companions voiced by him. The other two are Rasaad and Baeloth.
