Baldur's Gate Wiki

Several Maurezhi are gated into battle when encountering Lea'liyl the fiend in the The Abyssal Plane area.

The InfoBox reflects the 5 Hit Dice variety of these demons.


Though having the physical appearance of a Ghast, they aren't of this creature type.

This demon will typically engage in melee combat after self-protecting with a Blur spell.

If it isn't disrupted, it will also try and cast a Animate Dead (wizard) spell at its closest foe, and perhaps a Hold Person (wizard) at the next closest.

The creature's melee attack packs a wallop and is classified as a non-magical weapon.

The creature can See the invisible.


The Enhanced Edition has changed the creature's general classification from Giant Humanoid to Monster.
