Baldur’s Gate 3: How To Recruit Astarion In BG3

This is all you have to do to find and recruit Astarion in Baldur's Gate 3.

Different from most companions, Astarion is someone everyone wishes to recruit in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3). He is a handsome high elf of the Rogue class with a secret dark past. His way of thinking, motives, and behavior is not what you will expect from a hero, and neither he claims to be one. He is clear about what he finds fun and what is a nuisance. Astarion finds amusement in malevolent actions and is in favor of using Tadpole’s powers. Though he has a strong reason for using Tadpole’s power, hating heroic deeds is just part of his nature.
