Not to be confused with Neira.

I am really, really, really, really, really sorry about what just happened.

Neera is a chaotic neutral half-elf wild mage and a potential companion.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition[edit | edit source]

Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Desperate in Beregost

Neera is available to recruit from Chapter One on. She can be found in Beregost, south-east of the northern entrance, seeking aid against a group of mages hunting her, Neera barely gets to introduce herself before being confronted by the pursuing mages. Ekandor, the leader of the mages, demands your party step aside or be attacked. Regardless of your decision, Neera will force a battle in which she preemptively teleports Ekandor away using Wild Magic. After the ensuing battle with the remaining mages, Neera can be recruited.


I met a half-elf named Neera on the road and rescued her from a group of Red Wizards intent on studying her talent for wild magic. Her spells are unpredictable but sometimes far more powerful than those of other spellcasters. Her personality seems just as unpredictable, so I hope I made the right choice in bringing her along.

— Journal: Something Wild[1][2]


If Edwin Odesseiron is in your party during the encounter, Edwin will recognize Ekandor as a fellow member of the Red Wizards of Thay and attempt to mediate with his colleague. After Neera's preemptive teleportation of Ekandor, Edwin pulls rank with the remaining mages since he is the ranking Red Wizard in Ekandor's absence. As a result, the henchmen disperse without a fight. Neera will then begin her usual dialog by asking to join the party, however Edwin will then threaten to leave since his own brethren are hunting her. Thus, the player must choose between keeping Edwin or recruiting Neera.


I met a half-elf named Neera on the road and rescued her from a group of Red Wizards intent on studying her talent for wild magic. Between her unpredictable spells and manner, I thought it better to let her go on her way. She said she would be at the Friendly Arm Inn.

— Journal: Wild Thing[3]


If you dismiss Neera, she will be found in the Friendly Arm Inn. If you dismiss her many [how many?] times, she will turn hostile.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

  • Edwin - Neera and Edwin can't be in the same party, but you can recruit Edwin after finishing Neera's quest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

As a wild mage, Neera starts with Nahal's Reckless Dweomer, which allows the casters to choose any spell they know and cast it as a first level spell at the casting speed of 5, at the cost of a chance of having a Wild Surge, the casters get to add their experience levels to the wild surge roll.

At level 1, Neera has 4 hp and one Quarterstaff weapon proficiency, she is wearing a Traveller's Robe and wields Neera's Staff +1, she also carries a Gem Bag containing a Fire Agate Gem, Lynx Eye Gem, Sunstone Gem and a Turquoise Gem.

She knows the following spells at the time of joining:

Armor, Burning Hands, Chromatic Orb, Color Spray, Identify, Magic Missile (memorized), Nahal's Reckless Dweomer (memorized), Sleep

Biography[edit | edit source]

When asked about her past, NEERA says she has been on the run from Red Wizards for months and months. She seems quick-thinking and a little glib, but you have heard that wild mages are among the most powerful spellcasters... as long as they don't have an accident.
Despite her cheerful and capricious demeanor, you sense her past haunts her. As much as she loves unleashing the powers of her wild magic, she also seems to fear the harm it can cause.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

All right, if you're sure. Oh, it's so fun to be in charge! Leader
(yawn) Casting spells isn't as easy as I make it look. I'm tired. Tired
There was way more excitement in High Forest... Bored
EAT FLAMING—or, uh, possibly frosty—DEATH! Battlecry1
Augh! Damage
I could really use Tenser's Floating Bandage over here! Hurt
Oof... only take me to a licensed cleric... ugh... argh... Dying
Uh huh? Select1
What is it this time? Select2
You rang? Select3
I'll do it! Action1
MY turn to save the day! Action2
Stand back, and watch this! Action3

Dialogues[edit | edit source]

You! HEY, YOU! Yes, you. I don't see anybody else around here. A little help, please?
There's bandits! Vicious, magic bandits! And they must have gone to advanced bandit school or something. They're trying to capture me!
Listen, I'd love to give you a really long and detailed explanation of what's going on but—oh, look! WE'RE OUT OF TIME.
My hero! Now, where are the rest of your men hiding? I'll be honest, I was betting on you having a legion of soldiers, because you'll need it, and—OH GOODNESS, THEY'RE HERE.
I am really, really, really, really, really sorry about what just happened. I didn't want to involve you, but if I hadn't run into you when I did, they'd be elbow deep in my brains right now.
No use at all! Can't cook, can't clean, can't dance. You may as well just let me go.
Really? REALLY? That's just great. People like you really bolster my faith in strangers.
Casting wild magic is like... playing a flute by ear. I just kinda... picked it up as I went along, doing what felt natural. In magical terms, I can play a pretty mean tune. But when I miss a note, the flute shoots fire at everyone.
Also, the flute sometimes turns me into a hamster.
What a dirty mind you have! It's nothing like that. I just want to know more about how to handle my wild magic.
Oh dear! Meklin! So good to see you. I see you weren't hindered by any of my misdirection spells... that were cast purely as a practical joke.
Half-elven! And I have no idea what money you're talking about. Well, I may have taken a few coins for the road, but I hardly think that's worth chasing after me...
I was gonna pay him back! Eventually! At some point! In the future. If I could find him.
Come now, it was just a little gold. What's money between friends?! Chums? Acquaintances?
I am very, very, very, very, very sorry about what just happened. I didn't want to steal from Meklin; I just had no other choice. I wish things had turned out differently.
I'm glad you see it my way. Now, if we run into a stocky dwarf by the name of Orthan with a burn on his forehead, just pretend I'm a deaf mute and you found me in a ditch.
Kidding!
I am not a thief! It was a momentary lapse of ethics in a life-or-death situation. I'm on the straight and narrow, I swear it!
And I'm sure you've never done anything wrong? No one is perfect, not even you. Let's go find a seer and see whether we can conjure up an image of you kicking a small dog.
I have a feeling you're gonna eat those words someday.
Ooh! You are TERRIBLE. I hope that when you finally die, you spend eternity being gnawed on by hell hounds.
Hell hounds are not a myth!
No! They're real, and they breathe fire! And they come from the Nine Hells! They can melt iron bars!
Shut up. I hate you.

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear[edit | edit source]

Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Neera is available to recruit from Chapter 9. She's found in Bridgefort in Boareskyr Bridge, you must have retrieved the Wardstone from the ruined Temple of Bhaal in Forest of Wyrms in order to access the fort.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

  • Will romance male protagonists of any race
  • Edwin - They can't be in the same party (With the right dialogue you can convince Neera to stay)

Biography[edit | edit source]

When asked about her past, NEERA says little. She alludes to an "interesting" childhood as her wild magic powers developed, as well as a difficult time pursued by Red Wizards who wanted to study her and kill her (not necessarily in that order). She seems more interested in the future—preferably a future where a fellow wild mage named Adoy no longer speaks in her mind. The constant voice nattering away in her head is clearly driving the young half-elf to distraction. She seems willing to battle the entire crusade at once if it will get Adoy out of her head.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Oh, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry! Morale failure

Dialogues[edit | edit source]

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, SHUT UUUUUUP.
WHAT?
Uh, I mean—hello! Hi!
Neera. I'm a magician.
Yes, all right, I'm a wild magician. Are you happy now?
I'm a half-elf, lady. And I've got more than enough grating voices in my head right now, so I'll thank you for not adding yours to the din.
Adoy. Don't say his name. I realize you didn't say his name; I said it. I wish I hadn't said it, and you definitely shouldn't say it.
Yes, we're talking about you, and you aren't making it easy, so just be quiet. BE QUIET! ...You can't hear him, can you, <CHARNAME>?
I'm trying to get the ingredients for a—hey, I'm trying to TALK here—for a potion that'll SHUT HIM THE HELLS UP.
Nowhere to go but up, right? YES, I KNOW, ADOY. IT'S A FIGURE OF SPEECH. SHEESH!
Let's see. Dead water from beneath Boareskyr Bridge, got that already. The leg of a seven-legged spider.
I also need a feather from a planetar's wing, some belladonna, a potion of perception, and the juice of one turnip.
All right. Give me what you got; I need it to get Adoy's stupid—YEAH, I SAID STUPID! YOU DON'T LIKE IT? FEEL FREE TO LEAVE—voice out of my head.
One turnip juice, please.
Stow the sarcasm, <CHARNAME>. That feather there is from a planetar's wing. YOU CAN STOW THE SARCASM TOO, ADOY!
A feather from a planetar's wing. One more—SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP! Sorry. As I was TRYING to say, the feather's the next stone on my path to getting THIS guy OUT OF MY HEAD.
Yes! One step closer to getting rid of a certain someone. You know who I'm talking about, Adoy...
Oh yeah. This'll do JUST fine... Enjoy your time in my head, Adoy. It's nearly over.

Biography[edit | edit source]

When asked about her past, NEERA shrugs. She says that, before coming to Athkatla, she wandered the Sword Coast enjoying an adventurer's life while evading the Order of Eight Staves, an organization dedicated to hunting wild mages. She talks less about her distant past, but does not hide the fact she was banished from the High Forest for her wild magic. She is quick to laugh and to chatter, perhaps a little glibly, but lashes out whenever she senses a threat to her autonomy. She is deeply invested in protecting other wild mages and seems willing to risk almost everything to do so.

Heya, kiddo. I need you to take this and squeeze it real hard, all right?
I'm Neera. I'm gonna take you somewhere safe. Just take the talisman, all right?
Half-elf! And if you don't get out of here, things are gonna get really ugly—as ugly as that witch and her tricks. Squeeze the talisman. I'll be right behind you!
Wait a tick. <CHARNAME>, is that you? You look... older. Wait, no—great. You look great! Don't you remember me? Way up near Baldur's Gate... I kept lighting things on fire?
You saw that? And you just stood there and watched? Thanks a bunch, <CHARNAME>.
Hey! Do I get to join you or what? You could use my levelheaded advice, tactical wisdom, and moral clarity.
Whoa! That wasn't a wild surge... Oh, it's you! It's been a while... Last I heard, you were still with the elves. Hm! Thought you'd escape the whole Bhaalspawn thing by planes-hopping, huh? No? Uh-oh.
So, the elf queen's suggestion to go talk to her ancestors' stone heads landed you here, eh? I knew she had it in for you. But hey, thanks for dragging me into the Abyss with you. And we aren't even married.
Oh good, you're back! Do you want me to join you after all? Hint: The answer is "yes!"
