The wild amazonian woman named Shar-Teel is one of the best fighters in the PC role-playing game Baldur's Gate. She will constantly bicker and fight with the male members of your group, but her impressive brawling skills more than make up for the inconvenience. Here's how to find her.


Travel south down the Sword Coast to the city of Beregost after the party leaves Candlekeep at the beginning of the game.


Go to the eastern edge of Beregost and access the world map, which will bring up a new area to the east called "Temple."

Continue traveling east through the area with the temple and move into the unnamed forest area.


Find Shar-Teel in the middle of the forest and speak with her. She will challenge one of your male party members to a duel.


Defeat Shar-Teel in combat and she will offer to join your party. Accept her offer and she will become a playable character.


Shar-Teel has very high strength, so equip her with a larger weapon that deal more damage.
