Men are pathetic.

Shar-Teel Dosan is a chaotic evil human fighter and a potential companion in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.


She is the daughter of Angelo Dosan. Upon the defeat of Sarevok and his followers, Shar-Teel leaves her debt to Gorion's Ward paid.

Baldur's Gate & Tales of the Sword Coast

Recruitment Shar-Teel Dosan is available from Chapter One. She is found in the north-west corner at coordinates (273, 304) of the Mutamin's Garden area, east of the Temple area. She will challenge a male party member to a duel, and will only offer to join the party if she is bested.



  • Ajantis Ilvastarr will eventually attack any of the evil party members, but you can call him off by controlling him to do something else
  • Treats Dorn the same way as most other males. Challenges him to a duel soon after they meet, but will admit defeat if she's about to die.
  • Eldoth Kron - Conflict
  • Utterly infuriated by Xzar, refusing to even sleep anywhere near the madman.
  • Considers Yeslick to be a burden, because of his old age.


As a human level 2 fighter with 17 dexterity and 18/58 strength, you may dual her anytime to be a thief. Use her to backstab instead of fighting openly to make most out of her high strength (THAC0 and damage bonus) while neglecting her weakness of low HP (no constitution bonus) as a front liner, two birds with one stone.

It is also worth noting her potential as an archer.  With 18/58 strength she may use composite longbows, which is complemented by her high dexterity, and as a pure class fighter has no limitations in proficiency points spent in longbow.  This advantage is not lost should she dual class to thief, granting her a diverse range of tactics with backstab and ranged attacks, both of which minimize the risks that come with her low constitution.

In the original version, her initial weapon proficiency allocation makes her able to attain grand mastery in either sword category if she is recruited at level 2 and duals to thief after level 3. She is the only companion able to achieve that in the first game. Her focus on Two-Weapon Style in the Enhanced Edition makes that no longer possible.

When asked about her past, SHAR-TEEL has very little to say. From the little she speaks of it, it can be gleaned that she is an orphan. She also seems to harbor an intense dislike for Flaming Fist mercenaries, as well as an obvious disrespect for men in general. She seems to have something to prove, and likely her childhood was not of storybook quality.

To insult2


It is heavily implied that Shar-Teel was neglected or abused by her father as a child. Because of her troubled past, she has developed hatred towards males of any race and an urge to constantly prove herself better than them at everything, abusing them verbally and physically in the process.

She expresses particular enjoyment in adventuring in a party consisting only of female characters, although this is hard to pull off since she requires the presence of a male character in the party to be recruited.
