Branwen was a human female cleric of Tempus who lived in the late 14th century DR. Although she was from an island chain to the southwest, she spent some significant time adventuring the Sword Coast.[1]


Branwen possessed the unique ability to summon a spiritual hammer.[1]


Born in the village of Seawolf in the Norheim Isles, Branwen was reviled by her fellow villagers for pursuing the traditionally male-oriented profession of priest. She wandered the Sword Coast, eventually falling in with a malicious adventuring troupe. When Branwen realized the troupe engaged in banditry, she rebelled, but was turned to stone by the mage Tranzig.[1]

Branwen remained encased in stone as an attraction at the Nashkel carnvival until 1368 DR, she was freed by the Bhaalspawn known as Gorion's Ward. It was unknown if she joined them on their adventure.[1]


Behind the scenesEdit

For her appearance in Baldur's Gate, Branwen was voiced by the actress Bernadette Sullivan.[1]

The character briefly appeared in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, providing instructional help to the player in the game's tutorial.[1]
