Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Guild Contact, who is also referred to by the name Gracen, is the individual from the rival guild that the turncoat Shadow Thieves, Caehan and Jaylos, are supposed to meet with on the second floor of the Five Flagons Inn.

What's going on here? I'm Gracen. Were all of you to meet me here?


He'll either appear after some initial dialogue with the two shadow thieves, in which you can extract the name of the contact from the thieves, or he'll appear after you have killed them, with Caehan blurting out the contact's name before the fight begins.

Once the fight with the guild contact has begun, the quest section of your Journal will be updated under the title Aran's tasks to receive the Shadow Thieves' aid:

The defectors from the Shadow Thieves have been killed, and the contact who had come to collect them attacked me. I discovered that the rival guild is based in the Graveyard District, but little else. Hopefully, this is all the information that Aran Linvail requires.

This fighter is not unskilled, and with Plate Mail beneath his robes, and a well-crafted great sword at the ready he can engage in melee. The warrior is not proficient with it however, which tempers his swordsmanship abilities. This warrior will consume potions when scripted to do so for healing purposes.
