Baldur's Gate Wiki

Branet Al-thon is an NPC during the Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn saga and the enhanced edition.


Branet only appears during Baldur's Gate II Chapter 6 with three other paladins, including Eric Vanstraaten, William Reirrac, and Nerit.

The paladin's appearance only occurs if Gorion's Ward asked for assistance against the vampire coven when seeing Prelate Wessalen in the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart building.

If the Prelate agreed, then all the paladins will appear in the first chamber entered when the party descends into the catacombs.

Branet is not controllable by the player, but the creature's script will follow the PC and engage in melee combat with red circled enemies when they are detected.

The paladin actions are centered around combat outcomes with Del and Valen vampires while the party is present in the same area. When those two are defeated, Erik Van Straaten will dismiss Branet, William and Nerit and they'll depart the area.

The paladin warriors are not configured with any of the Paladin passive resistances or use of innate abilities such Lay on Hands (paladin), nor do they have use of any cleric spells.

Mod content[]

Sword Coast Stratagems mod assigns a revised fighter style AI script to the paladin in Chapter 6. It allows for application of three SCS potions readied for quaffing during hostilities. Additionally, 2 pips in single weapon fighting style are added to the creature's weapon proficiency.
