How to Recruit Lae’zel and Where to Find Her in Baldur’s Gate 3?

You will first meet Lae’zel aboard the Nautiloid during the prologue, she is held prisoner by the Mind Flayers just like you. While there, temporarily she will join your party and will play a crucial role in your escape. You must flee with her to truly recruit her later to your party. After the prologue, you will be separated, and you’ll need to find her again on the Roadside Cliffs, situated not far north of the Ravaged Beach, where you’ll land after the ship crash.

To recruit her, you must rescue her from two Tieflings who hold her as a prisoner in a hanging wooden cage. Choose to side with her against the Tieflings, which can have two outcomes. If you manage to pass charisma skill checks Tieflings may agree to leave her and walk away, otherwise, you’ll need to kill them to free Lae’zel. Interact with her and ask her to join your party. However, if you don’t recruit her immediately, there’s a possibility of finding her killed and tossed aside on the road.
