Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Beastmaster Jolstead is a character from Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition and part of the Rasaad's Journey quest line.

Something with claws is never defenseless, Horvat.

— Jolstead


He is located across the causeway and down some natural steps in a clearing southeast of the Heretic Temple. When the party gets within sight of Jolstead a Cut-scene will play, showing Jolstead's cruel training with new Monk Heretics. Caged beasts and animals are made to fight the Monks.

Rasaad is particularly disturbed by what he observes and says that the sanctity of life is not being upheld. There is a large Bear in one cage, which is locked. You may attempt to communicate with this Bear, named Wilson, and this is part of the Where's Wilson? quest line.

Speaking with Jolstead will open several dialogue options regarding this bear. If you should pick or force the lock on the cage, then Jolstead will become hostile. You can also provoke him into hostility. You can bargain and purchase the Bear as well.
