Baldur's Gate Wiki

Sahuagin Prince are a predominately underwater species resembling anthropomorphic sharks and are found in Baldur's Gate II , Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. They can breathe in or out of water. Most worship Sekolah, the Shark God.

The Prince variety uses the Large Sahuagin animation.

This particular page is about a creature that has been captured by the drow, and is the third opponent beast to battle in the Ust Natha Tavern fighting pit. Speak with Szordrin after defeating the Nabassu in the second battle. He'll say:
"Dare you continue? There is a prince amongst the shark-fiends... the ones called "sahuagin." A strong one captured with difficulty during a raid on their city."

Enter the fighting arena and slay this prince. The shark creature will only possess its own hand to hand weaponry (bite and claws). It can attack 5 times per round.

If you defeat the opponent, the party gains 2,000 XP for the kill and a 750 gold victory purse.


A second Sahuagin Prince (SAHPRI01.cre) is imprisoned in a locked cell in the Mind Flayers in Underdark (Eastern Tunnels) area of the Underdark.

Mod content[]

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

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod assigns a new AI script to the creature to improve tactical combat behavior. Appropriate weapon proficiencies are also placed so the creature receives some bonuses with its equipped weaponry choices, thus improving THAC0 and damage output.

The mod changes the prince to a level 16 fighter, with increased Hit points, and some stat boosts. It will perform better in combat now and won't only be a 2 HD creature (that might be a developer error). In addition, the prince has an undroppable Spear +2 wielded with grand mastery proficiency and 2 pips in two-handed weapon fighting style.
