Faldorn may be considered a sort of anti-hero, for she's one of the Shadow Druids, a druid faction that takes extreme, often violent measures for the sake of protecting nature and preserving the balance.

Baldur's Gate & Tales of the Sword Coast[]


Faldorn is available from Chapter Four. She can be found in the third part of the Cloakwood and will join with you in bringing an end to the activities of the Iron Throne in the forest, which happens to be one of the main quests in game.

Faldorn: "Evil men have been defiling the woodlands with smoke and waste, all in a futile quest for the metal, iron. Would you join me in my task? I would destroy these men of the Iron Throne. Come with me. They dwell to the east within a fort."

If the party first talks to her after Davaeorn has been killed, then they have the option to tell her: "The fort has been dealt with, but the Iron Throne is still at large. Do you still want to join us?", to which Faldorn replies: "You have ended our forest's suffering? Then yes, let us find and destroy whatever is left of the Iron Throne."


  • Ajantis disapproves of Faldorn's extreme conduct.
  • Faldorn gets along very well with Coran. She respects him and believes he is much wiser than his companions give him credit for.
  • Dynaheir shows some distaste towards Faldorn, whereas Faldorn admires Dynaheir's mastery of elemental magic and doesn't understand why the mage treats her so poorly.
  • She has serious conflicts of interest with Jaheira, as their druid factions are opposed. Jaheira's faction believes more in preserving the balance of nature through promoting harmony, while the Shadow Druids believe in taking far more drastic measures. The two argue near constantly, and Faldorn is not above insulting Khalid in order to get at Jaheira.
  • Kagain's disregard for nature in the interest of money sickens Faldorn, and she holds a strong dislike for the dwarf.
  • Khalid seems to be trying to reach an uneasy truce of sorts with Faldorn, admitting that he does appreciate her honesty but that she could stand to be more tactful in her interactions with him and Jaheira. Faldorn, however, merely sees Khalid as a weakling, and thus a perfect choice of spouse for Jaheira, who she believes to be of a similar nature.
  • Faldorn gets along very well with Kivan and approves of his deep respect for nature.
  • Faldorn gets along very well with Minsc, approves of his respect for nature, and believes he is much wiser than his companions give him credit for.
  • She gets tired of Quayle's yammering.
  • Tiax disgusts Faldorn.


Faldorn is the only companion who is able to cast level 5 druid spells because clerics can't reach level 9 due to the experience limit and Jaheira's multi-class separates XP into two, preventing her from using level 5 spells. She can become the best healer in game if players spend slots on Call Woodland Beings which summons a Nymph with one Mass Cure memorized, while she has other healing options, too, like Cure Critical Wounds.

Insect Plague, True Seeing, and Iron Skins are other great level 5 slots candidates, the first is a mage killer with no-save 100% interruption rate while the second dispels all hostile illusions and the last is a solid defensive option.

She also comes with a special Summon Dread Wolf ability.

Her standard equipment is a leather armor and a club. Her starting proficiencies at level three are one pip in clubs and one in darts.


When asked about her past, FALDORN states that she was the child of a Black Raven Uthgardt woman. As an infant she was given over to an enclave of Shadow Druids as an offering, and was thereafter raised according to their beliefs.
A splinter group of the main druidic order, Shadow Druids engage in very aggressive protection of nature, often relying on violence to achieve their aims. Faldorn showed great promise as she approached adulthood, and the order decided to send her to the Sword Coast to test her devotion to their ideals. Her ongoing mission is to use any means available to stop the despoiling of nature, no matter the risk or the cost to her life or any other's.
