Baldur's Gate Wiki

Parisa is female vampire in Athkatla and a loyal member of Bodhi's Vampire Coven.


Chapters 2 or 3[]

Before Chapter 4, she may appear in any district of the city during a night cycle (midnight to dawn), talking to a Shadow Thief in an attempt to get him to leave the shadow thief guild and join the vampire guild.

Parisa appears neutral during this encounter, and she will dominate the thief when dialogue has ended. Parisa will also be aware of the party's nearby presence during this encounter and, depending on which side you may have taken in the guild war, she'll either disappear with the thief after the encounter is over or she and the dominated thief will become hostile and attack the party.

If the party desires and acts quickly enough, she can be attacked, making her hostile.

Even though she appears to have been killed when the fighting is done, she is one of the only vampires that doesn't revert to its gaseous form and disappear. Instead, her corpse will remain on the ground. Killing Parisa will result in 8,500 XP but she doesn't permanently die.

Note: Remember, to truly kill a vampire, it must be staked in its coffin.

Chapter 4[]

When you arrive in Brynnlaw during the beginning of Chapter 4, if you sided with the Shadow Thieves, Parisa, along with two other vampires named Del and Valen, will attack the party. Killing Parisa, again, will result in another 8,500 XP and this time she does permanently die (in the context that she won't re-appear anymore in the game). This second version of the vampire is a less durable and able opponent than the first version.

Mod content[]

Mods icon This section is about unofficial content that is only available via fan-made mods.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod with the "Improved Vampires" component revises both appearances of Parisa. See the Vampire article and the "Mod content" section for a discussion of the mod's revisions to vampires (including Parisa) in the game.

The first version of this vampire (VVPARIS.CRE) is a level 11/11 Fighter/Thief with 145 HP, STR 20, DEX 20, CON 19. She has 2.5 Attacks per round, THAC0 3 and -3 Armor Class. A default SCS script is assigned allowing Vampire Domination ability every 2 rounds, and attacks with either a 3 level drain or "Blood Drain" temporarily reducing CON by 3. She can only be struck by +2 or better weapons. She can shape change into bat or wolf form, and summon bats, rats or wolves with the "children of the night" ability.

The second version of this vampire (PPPARIS.CRE) is a level 10/10 Fighter/Thief with 116 HP, STR 19, DEX 19, CON 18. She has 1.5 attacks per round, THAC0 5 and -1 Armor Class. Her melee strike drains 2 experience levels or 3 CON. She also has a different default script, making her akin to an ancient vampire, that has all the abilities of the former version plus the innate Vampire Fear ability and the "Mesmerize" feeblemindedness attack. She will recognize opponents protected from level drain and charm and many other "buffs" for intelligent targeting.
