Baldur's Gate Wiki

Ercias is a human male thief in the Five Flagons Inn located in the Bridge District, skulking in the shadows of the 2nd Floor. He does not initiate conversation if you approach.

If anyone in the party speaks with him, he'll avoid saying too much. However, if Jaheira is on the floor at this time, then this thief will be recognized by her, probably from some past Harper encounter, and the thief will beat feet and leave for good, as he has been exposed. Jaheira says: "Hmm... wait one moment... do I know you?", to which Ercias replies: "Er... no, no, I don't think so. I must be going, actually". And finally Jaheira says: "I see. A Zhentish agent, if I recall, but one of no consequence. Pay him no heed, <<Charname>>".

He'll have some other interjections if a halfling is present or if Yoshimo is in the party. There are some other lines as well. It all depends on the dialogue choices made, and who is talking. With Haer'Dalis in the party, Ercias says: "Aye now, yer back, are ye?", to which the Tiefling replies: "Yes, well... I was rather tied up back there for a while, my friend."

If you desire to, the party could preemptively try and slay this unsavory lurker. There are no witnesses. Act as deemed necessary. The party is in Athkatla, City of Coin (and unprovoked murder). If the party is concerned about clean-up or body disposal, just remeber that sleeping somewhere - somehow - makes all corpses disappear. Its magic.
