The Dark Urge is a special Origin in Baldur's Gate 3. The Dark Urge gives a custom character a special origin background and adds many new interactions, obstacles, and story elements for that character.

Unlike the other Origin Characters, The Dark Urge can be played using any race, class, and gender, and will not be part of the player's party if they are playing any other Origin Character, although The Dark Urge may be encountered as an NPC in the world.

My rancid blood whispers to me: kill, kill, and kill again. My ruined body yearns to reap death in this world, and when this foul Urge calls, it possesses my whole being. Injured beyond repair, I know nothing besides this; I must resist this Dark Urge, lest it consume my mind. I must discover what happened to me, and who I was. Before my twitching knife-hand writes a tragedy in blood.

The Dark Urge, fearing their dark desires in their Introduction cinematic.

Background[ред. | ред. код]

You remember nothing of your past besides that you walked a path paved with blood. As you venture on, you find yourself inescapably drawn towards unimaginable cruelties. Where do these thoughts come from?

Gameplay[ред. | ред. код]

A character with The Dark Urge Origin remembers nothing of their past and are plagued with sick, dark urges of violence and cruelty. Like the other Origin Characters, The Dark Urge adds a unique storyline that surfaces over time as the true nature of The Dark Urge is revealed.

While playing as The Dark Urge, players will be forced to resist or succumb to the temptation of the darkness inside them. Resisting may not always be easy to do, and characters trying to follow a path of morality and good will have to overcome their inner struggle in order to remain true to their ideals. It is possible to play this Origin as both an evil villain, a good hero, or anything in-between.

Guiding the Dark Urge in their time of need is Sceleritas Fel. A vile and loyal servant, Fel lives only to see the Dark Urge return to their rightful, bloodstained path and urges them to commit some of the most lurid acts of violence.

The Urge[ред. | ред. код]

This is the Dark Urge's Personal Quest. The Dark Urge, no matter your choice of race or class, will have unique choices exclusive to the Dark Urge, many of which are disturbed and violent. Many of these choices can be avoided, either by simply not selecting them at all, or by passing Saving Throws to resist the Urge in situations it can not be avoided.

There are many instances of cruelty and violence the Dark Urge can commit;

This List is Unfinished. There are many more instances where the Dark Urge has unique interactions.

Act 1

  • Tearing off Gale's arm when first meeting him. This prevents you from recruiting him.
  • On meeting Timber the Squirrel at the Druid Grove, the Dark Urge will punt the squirrel with no input. The player can only control this choice if they have Speak with Animals active.
  • Encourage Arabella to leave by flicking your eyes towards the exit, leading to her death.
  • Killing Alfira while she is visiting the camp (Or a Dragonborn bard named Quil if Alfira is unavailable for any reason), leading to the first meeting of Sceleritas Fel. The player can not control this choice.
  • Killing Minthara after sleeping with her if the Dark Urge sided with the Goblin Camp against the Grove.

Act 2

  • Killing Isobel. The player can choose whether or not to do this, but will lead to a different event. Killing Isobel rewards the Dark Urge with the Slayer form.
  • Killing your lover or closest companion. The player can choose to warn their companion of this, or choose to simply kill them. Doing this rewards the Dark Urge with the Slayer form.

During the story, and your interactions with Sceleritas Fel, whether you indulge in your urges or not, you slowly learn more of your past, and why you feel the need to kill others.

This Section is unfinished, and there may be incorrect or missing information within.

During Act 2, should the Dark Urge kill Isobel at the Last Light Inn, they are granted the Slayer form, revealing their heritage as a Bhaalspawn to those familiar with the previous Baldur's Gate games, which was an ability that Bhaalspawn could acquire within those previous games. Should the player forego killing Isobel, after making their way to Baldur's Gate in Act 3, arriving at Wyrm's Crossing, it is revealed you were not only a Bhaalspawn, but the leader for the Cult of Bhaal. Further conversation with Gortash reveals you were one of the original members of the Chosen of the Dead Three, and alongside Gortash, had originally schemed to use the Crown of Karsus on the Elder Brain to falsify the religion of the Absolute. In this sense, the Dark Urge is very well the catalyst for the main story's events.

The only reason the Dark Urge is not within this position is because Orin the Red, envious of the Dark Urge's power and control over the cult, betrayed them, inflicted amnesia upon them, and took control of the cult herself.

After this revelation, the Dark Urge may follow the story just as a normal character may. They can attempt to restore their original partnership with Gortash, which is still available to other Origins under a different context, but the important choice the Dark Urge makes is whether they restore themselves as Bhaal's Chosen, or simply fight Orin with no intention to retake the mantle.

Should they refuse to become Bhaal's chosen, the Dark Urge will be drained of every divine aspect of the god, and be reborn by Withers, free from the Urge.

The Dark Urge as an NPC[ред. | ред. код]

Should you reach the Temple of Bhaal as any of the other Origin characters, including as a custom character, you will find the corpse of The Dark Urge in the Chosen's room, tortured and murdered by Orin the Red. They are not available as a companion or as an enemy.

Trivia[ред. | ред. код]

  • The final origin character was revealed through Blood in Baldur's Gate ARG. The players controlled a detective investigating a chain of murders. On the final day of the ARG The Dark Urge along with Sceleritas Fel were revealed in the final video where the white-scaled dragonborn kills the detective.
  • Due to similarities the Dark Urge shares with previous Baldur's Gate protagonists, it is theorized that they are the canon protagonist of Baldur's Gate 3. This has not been confirmed or denied as of the time of writing.
  • In the Bhaal's Chosen Room, a Bhaalspawn that looks exactly similar to the Dark Urge default appearance can be found lying dead next to her bed, this only happens if you don't select the Dark Urge Origin, with the character that interacts with the corpse will comment that "Orin must have tormented him".
