Baldur's Gate Wiki

Archer is a male elf fighter found in the Illithid Hideout in the Sewers.

I... I c-can't stop... myself! Kill the intruders!


There are two of these archers encountered in the second chamber of the illithid complex.

The fighters are ostensibly represented as being dire charmed and controlled by the mind flayers and forced to defend against the party's intrusion. This is conveyed by certain on-screen dialogue messages displayed when the encounter occurs.

The archers use the WTARSGT script which is focused on ranged combat behavior. As the elves are only armed with bow and arrow, they attempt to stay away from attackers in melee combat and fire from a distance.

Note that computer-controlled enemies and NPCs don't have to adhere to the same requirements as a player character - as evidenced by their 9 strength and use of a Composite Longbow.
