Baldur's Gate Wiki

Sir Laren is a human cleric and a member of the retribution squad from the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart that has been sent to administer justice upon the party for the killing of five knights in the Windspear Hills area during the Journey to the Windspear Hills side quest. The squad is composed of three paladins, a fighter/cleric, a mage, and the cleric.

They will randomly appear in the Bridge, Docks, or the Slums districts, or Waukeen's Promenade at any time of the day or night to attack the party for the party's horrific act of murder. All of this can be avoided if the party takes up Garren Windspear's offer of temporary sanctuary inside his cabin following the battle with the knights. After some conversation inside the cabin, Windspear will set off to try to clear the party's name with the Radiant Heart by contacting some of his former friends within the Order. A task in which he is ultimately successful in accomplishing.

Garren has convinced the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart of my innocence, so I am free once again to travel without being hounded by paladins bent on vengeance.

The cleric will engage the closest enemy he can detect in melee combat. Despite the cleric class, his creature file includes no priest spell use. He behaves as a fighter.
