Karajah's Life and Death (Karajah's Life and Death +3 in-game) is an enchanted leather armor +3. Compared to Leather Armor, this has armor class of 5, which is three points better and has weight of 4 lbs, making it 11 points lighter in weight. This item appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and it will also appear in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.

In Baldur's Gate, this is the best leather armor and also the lightest body armor, but Studded Leather Armor +2 and Shadow Armor provide better protection to characters which can only wear leather armor as body armor. This piece of armor is found in Durlag's Tower.

In Baldur's Gate II, this armor is for sale at the Adventurer's Mart.


Baldur's GateEdit

Leather armor +3:Karajah was Calishan's undisputed champion of pit fighting for a decade. Wearing only a thin leather armor and spiked gauntlets, he would pummel his foes to the ground, seemingly impervious to their blows. Eventually it was revealed that his armor was heavily enchanted at which point angry spectators threw him into the pit with a club-wielding ogre. The beast managed to break all of Karajah's bones while the armor remained as good as new.

Baldur's Gate IIEdit

Leather Armor +3: Karajah's Life and Death

Karajah was Calimshan's champion of pit fighting for a full decade, and seemingly unbeatable. His success, or so he claimed, was due to the mobility that his light armor afforded him. He may well have been unaware of the suit's other qualities, but his peers ignored his claims of ignorance when enchantments were discovered. The armor survived the subsequent beating, whereas Karajah did not.
