Baldur's Gate Wiki

Lycanthrope Island, also known as Werewolf Island and the Isle of Balduran, is a small island somewhere in the Trackless Sea. It is here that Balduran's ship, Wandering Eye, made anchor for the last time.

The island is split into two areas:

Lycanthrope Island South (Area AR2000) has a small farming and fishing village supposedly inhabited by humans.

Lycanthrope Island North (Area AR1500) is far more savage, and home to the rotting remains of the Wandering Eye.

Lootwise the buildings have some potions and gems - not much of interest.

The island is not too big. With good wind I sail around it in afternoon. There is a natural harbor on north of island and on east of island. The ship of my grandfathers, of Balduran, lies beached in north harbor. The east harbor holds our hope for survival.

You are sent here by Mendas to retrieve Balduran's Logbook.

Upon exploring the fishing village, you are directed to speak with Kaishas Gan, the leader of the village, who asks you to help rid the island of the "beasts" that have been harassing the village for years. In return she will help the party escape the island.

The historian of the village, either Delainy for male Wards or Durlyle for females, asks you to find and return a lost cloak and then to search for and bring back some Belladonna Flowers.

Evalt is a fisherman in the village who asks you to find his missing brother.

Farthing is a young child who has lost her dolly and wants you to look for it.

Maralee is a villager who asks you to rescue and return her infant son.

Dradeel is a elven mage holed up in an abandoned hut on the northern half of the island. He will task you with retrieving his spellbook in hopes that it might help in discovering a way to leave the island.

Hostile Encounters[]

Most of the monsters you will encounter on the Isle of Balduran are of a lupine nature, hinting at its dark secret. There are also a number of bears roaming the forest.


There is a bug in at least some European versions of the game, where certain events duplicate themselves an infinite number of times. The Sirine Queen, who must be spoken to to complete the "Evalt's Missing Brother" quest, has been cloned endlessly, and every single one demands to speak to the player. There is also a brief cutscene which plays when the party enters the Wandering Eye, and this scene plays over and over again for as long as the player is in that area. However, it will stop if the player leaves the ship, goes upstairs, or pauses the game.

Mod content[]

The mods The Calling and Sword Coast Stratagems both [1]provide optional pacifist resolutions to the island, allowing the player to leave without slaughtering the village or fighting Kaishas.
