Baldur's Gate 3 Origin characters - all confirmed characters so far

With Baldur's Gate 3 finally coming out of early access, fans of the series are looking into what will be added to the full version of the game. One of these additions will be allowing players to go through the game as Origin characters.

The Baldur's Gate series is based on Dungeons & Dragons, so the character creation process is a pretty big part of the fun. However, Baldur's Gate 3 will give players the option to forgo this process and use Origin characters instead.

But what exactly are Origin characters in Baldur's Gate 3? Let's find out!

What are Origin characters in Baldur's Gate 3?

Origin characters or simply "Origins" are pre-made characters that you can select on the character creation screen after the game is officially released. The option to play as origin characters is unavailable while Baldur's Gate 3 is still in early access.

Each of these characters will have their own strengths, weaknesses, and story for you to experience. But that doesn't mean that you'll miss out on anything by playing with a custom character. If you do decide to create your own avatar in Baldur's Gate 3, you'll be given opportunities to recruit origin characters as companions and experience their stories that way.

There will be six Origin characters to choose from when the game is officially released, but expect more to come as time goes on.

Who are the available Origin characters?

Baldur's Gate 3 has quite a colourful cast, so if you plan on playing as an Origin character, you'll have a pretty diverse list to choose from. You can recruit these characters as companions in Baldur's Gate 3.

Here are the Origin characters in Baldur's Gate 3:

  • Lae'zel: An excellent choice for melee combat, Lae'zel is a Githyanki warrior that plays as a Fighter class.
  • Gale: A human wizard who is extremely effective at being a glass cannon.
  • Shadowheart: High Half-Elf that fills the party's support role as a Cleric.
  • Astarion: If you prefer a stealthy playstyle, Astarion is your guy. He's a Half-Elf with the Rogue class.
  • Wyll: One of the more versatile characters in the game, as this human has a wide array of Warlock spells.
  • Karlach: With this great axe-wielding Tiefling Barbarian, you can hack through your enemies with ease.

And those will be the Origin characters you can choose from at launch. There's a good chance that more characters will be added to the game later on, but nothing specific has been announced about that just yet.
