Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Guard Captain, also referred to as Captain Rerdes, is a human male fighter that can be spawned in the Cellar of Brothel or the Brothel HQ, depending on the circumstances of how the party has made their way into the area.

What is the meaning of this intrusion? You know that you are forbidden to enter the Lady's room, girl.

He'll appear in the Cellar of Brothel hallway but only if spawned by a certain dialogue trigger by one of the Guard (Brothel Cellar) fighters.


If the party is with Ellie the cook's courtesan aide and then depending on the dialogue choices selected with the guard captain in the Brothel HQ (Lady Galvena's chamber) - he'll drink the ale that has been tainted with the sleeping potion and fall into a deep slumber. If the dialogue goes wrong, then the captain will bark out "By the gods! You have disgraced the Lady's room with your intrusion! Die!", and a fight will commence. The captain is a melee attacker only, albeit at a level 14 experience.

If the captain is slain, his body can be looted. Also, since the party is in the Brothel HQ now, a search of the area can turn up that Brothel Prison door key you need to find Claire.
