|“||Aw, I broke a nail.||”|
Skie seems to be the only heiress of her family during the Baldur's Gate event as her brother has already been killed by bandits.
Skie is available from Chapter Five and can be found in Entar Silvershield's Estate, on the second floor. She pairs with Eldoth, and so will only join the party if he is with them. If Eldoth is not in the party when they talk to Skie, she will think the worst of the party and flee, never to return.
- Eldoth is scripted to initiate dialogue when he sees Skie, but in
- Biff the Understudy to appear and answer her in place of Eldoth. After this, Eldoth will still initiate dialog with Skie next time he sees her, as if she had not joined the party yet. This will bring up an incorrect dialogue line meant for a later event. In
Being one of the four pure thieves in game, Skie neither can be recruited early like Imoen or Safana, nor has some special abilities like Alora has her Rabbit's Foot, which grants her a very powerful Luck +2 passive effect. The major advantage of keeping her seems to be the "free loot" of Entar Silvershield's Estate, the richest man's house in Baldur's Gate, plus blackmailing Elkart in Blade and Stars, which nets you 1000 Gold each day up to 8000 total, by when a Flaming Fist guard will appear.
“ When asked about her past, SKIE bubbles that she is the daughter of Entar Silvershield, one of the Grand Dukes of Baldur's Gate. Her admittedly sheltered life has consisted mostly of learning ballet, history, and languages. Being exceptionally agile, she has become a very proficient dancer, though this natural dexterity has mainly allowed her to better sneak off on sojourns away from the estate.
She says she finds the nastier areas of Baldur's Gate exciting, though she seems naive about the dangers. On one of her escapades she met up with the debonair Eldoth, and thinks that he can help her live the life of adventure that she craves. She trusts him implicitly, perhaps too much so.
Please, help me! Morale failure You're the finest group of friends I've ever had. Happy I don't think what we're doing is morally right. Unhappy-annoyed All of you are such pigs. Unhappy-serious I can't take this anymore. I'm going back home! Unhappy-break I don't know if I can handle this leadership thing, but I'm gonna try. Leader I'm getting tired. Couldn't we take a rest soon? Tired I'm so bored. Bored Damage Ahh! I'm hurt. Help! Hurt Dying Can I help you? Select1 Aw, I broke a nail. Select2 Oh, I've mussed my hair. Select3 Oh, my feet hurt. Action1 I have a cold. Action2 I have a headache. Action3 Do you like my perfume? Action4 It's been so long since I've had a hot meal. Action5 Let's go shopping! Action6 I wanna go home. Action7 Eldoth, why do you treat our companions so badly? Interaction1 I love you, Eldoth.
Why do you always have to make fun of me?! I hate you! Get away from me!
I'd love to hear your music, Garrick.
Eldoth is a kind man. He cares about me, Garrick.
You're a good friend. Compliment1 I feel safe with you in the party. Compliment2 I think you're a beautiful person. Compliment3 *sniffle* I can't believe he's dead. To death-general What am I gonna do? *sniffle* You can't die, Eldoth, you can't. To death-specific Thank you. You're very kind. To compliment1 Uh, I'm sorry. Did I do something wrong? To insult1 Eldoth, tell them to stop being so cruel.
In a short time after the Iron Throne crisis and the battle against Sarevok, eventually Skie found out that Eldoth eloped with another harlot and dumped her. Feeling betrayed, Skie quit associating with him and moved on to a life without depending on him.
Still looking for excitements and adventure, Skie hides her identity to join the Flaming Fist without telling her family and is enlisted in the marching troops towards the Dragonspear Castle against Caelar Argent's crusades. Her father, Entar Silvershield, secretly appoints a Flaming Fist officer Bence Duncan to protect her. You’ll find Duncan and Skie quarreling with each other along the road, though there is a tavern rumour that the two are sharing bedrolls.
Skie is murdered by a Hooded Man by the end of Dragonspear event, framing Gorion's Ward (again) for the deed. Her soul is trapped within the Soultaker but the dagger is nowhere to be found. Her body is preserved and transported back to Baldur’s Gate in hope of reviving her once the dagger is retrieved, which seems less likely to happen for her body has already been soulless for too long and the magical process required to bind her soul back is far too difficult even for grand clerics. It’s unknown of Skie’s final fate as no related content has been added in BG2EE.
I'm Skie. Skie Silvershield, Duke Entar's daughter. You remember me, right? How could you forget me? Never mind me—how could you forget Eldoth? We did great things together! He and I made love under the moonlight and extorted gold from Daddy, and then Eldoth left me for some harlot. Oh, ha ha. Have you been licking a whetstone? Your tongue's sharper than ever. I was just a child then. Now, I'm a woman. I've even joined—well, never mind. I'll tell you that later, when I'm sure we're alone. Are you awake? Don't you want to hear what I have to say? No, no, it's REALLY important... I've joined the Flaming Fist! No, really, I have. Not under my name, of course—Daddy would never allow it. But I'm in it now. Life as a noble is boring and stupid. I want to do something GREAT with my life and also get out of this dirty old city and maybe meet some handsome soldiers. So I'm going north with you! I know! All right, go back to sleep. I'll see you in—oh, I guess you don't really have time to sleep now. I'll see you soon. Remember, whatever you do—don't tell Daddy about this!
Skie is a spoiled rich brat and will keep whining about her hairdo and manicure during her time in the party. She finds the noble life laid for her boring and keeps slipping out of her Estate looking for excitements given a chance, however Skie is actually quite delusional and poorly prepared for the life of adventuring. Her choice of "friends" is also questionable, as in spite of her devotion to Eldoth, he seems more interested in the ransom money than in Skie herself.
