Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition[]


You must recruit Hexxat before Chapter 4, if you haven't met her before sailing to Brynnlaw, you miss the chance to recruit her. She can be found in Dragomir's Tomb entered from Athkatla Graveyard after accepting Clara's request in Copper Coronet in Slums.




Being a vampire, the only undead companion in game, Hexxat has several special abilities:

  • Blood Drain - Drain the target of 1-4 Constitution and knock him unconscious for 5 rounds. Saving throw: Save vs. Death.
  • Children of the Night - Summons 1d4 creatures, depending on her level:
  • Domination (Hexxat) - This ability is similar to wizard spell Domination and priest spell Mental Domination, but casting time is 1, and the target has no option for release, even if made to do something against their moral. The Saving Throw to negate the effect has a -2 penalty. The effect can be reversed only by Dispel Magic.

After joining she will ask Gorion's Ward to keep Dragomir's Respite, a Bag of Holding containing her coffin. When "killed" she takes gaseous form, goes to her coffin and regenerates in a few hours.

She comes equipped with a non-removable Hexxat's Amulet, which provides 1 HP/round regeneration, immunity to Charm, Domination, Panic, Berserk, Bleeding, Sleep, Paralysis, Poison, Poison Damage, Disease Level drain and Ability Score Drain not caused by illithids.[1]

Sun damages her however, but the Cloak of Dragomir allows her to travel under the sun, with penalties to her ability scores. She will refuse to use anti-undead items such as Daystar, the Burning Earth, or Protection From Undead.


A striking woman of Chultan descent, Hexxat holds her secrets dear. When pressed, she speaks in vague terms about her mother, a cleric of Ubtao, and the aunts who raised her. Of her life beyond childhood, she says nothing, other than that her immediate assignment was given her by someone known only as L. Discretion is a requirement of Hexxat's profession, and she prides herself on being a consummate professional.
