Baldur's Gate Wiki

Bessen is an Invoker cohort of Galvarey inside Galvarey Estate at the Athkatla Docks during the Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn campaign. He is only found during a Companion Quest when Jaheira is Summoned to the Harper Hold.

When Gorion's Ward and Jaheira first encounters Bessen he is waiting, along with Galvarey and three more cohorts, Iko, Kail and Nadinal, just inside of the front door of Galvarey's Estate. He has no dialog; Galvarey does all the talking.


When combat inevitably starts, Bessen's first action is to cast Stoneskin and Minor Spell Turning, followed by Mirror Image.
