Abdel Adrian is a male human fighter, a Bhaalspawn and the official version of Gorion's Ward in Forgotten Realms canon.

Information about Abdel's alignment varies, depending on source: in the original games and in the Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition he is neutral good, while the pregenerated character from the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Siege of Dragonspear is chaotic good. Official lore says, he was chaotic neutral during the time when the Baldur's Gate novels were released – which the "official lore" was based on – and has become true neutral in later events (Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition).


Abdel Adrian is one of the protagonists in the pre-generated save game that came with Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast. He is also one of the pregenerated player characters in the Enhanced Editions.

Forgotten RealmsEdit

Abdel is the protagonist of the Baldur's Gate novels. In the general canon of the Forgotten Realms he is described as being 7 feet/ 2.13m tall, having long, ink-black hair and dark eyes, unlike his in-game portrait. He was born in 1343 DR, which would make him 25 years old at the beginning of the games.

He grew to become over a century old and became one of the Grand Dukes of Baldur's Gate in his later years. He died at the age of 136.
