Bg icon Baldur's Gate Wiki has an article about
Dynaheir has very little to say. She is apparently from the far-eastern nation of Rasheman, and has come to the west with a bodyguard known as Minsc. Minsc is on his "dejemma", a right of passage, and it appears that she may be involved in something similar. Of this, she will only state that great things are foretold for the Sword Coast. She seems very sure of herself, is possessed with an old-world sensibility, and is very demanding of her companions. She has expressed concerns about the sanity of her bodyguard, though she has an obvious respect for him and will not go far from his side.
  — Character description from the Baldur's Gate computer game

Dynaheir was a young wizard specialized in invocation magic, and a wychlaran of Rashemen. Her speech was somewhat archaic and she was very demanding of her companions. She had come to the Sword Coast along with her bodyguard Minsc as part of a rite of passage. The two became separated when they were attacked by gnolls and she was taken captive. She was rescued by the protagonist and traveled with them during their conflict with Sarevok, only to meet her untimely demise soon after in the hands of Irenicus's lackeys.[1]



  • Dynaheir is a playable character in the game Baldur's Gate. She can be found in the gnoll stronghold near the coast and the Cloud Peak Mountains; in Nashkel, the player will find two other characters who both want help in finding her, Minsc to save her and Edwin to kill her. The player can at this point elect to save, kill, or ignore Dynaheir, though the next game assumes them to have done the first. If she is taken into the party at the same time as Minsc is, both of them will refuse to stay in the party if the other is removed. Besides her standard spellcasting, she has an unexplained special ability to use slow poison twice per day. Dynaheir's specific motivation for coming to the Sword Coast can only be found out by casting a charm spell on her while she is not in the party; she will then reveal that she's looking for the spawn of Bhaal that are foretold in Alaundo's prophecy. In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Dynaheir is assumed to have been part of the party (along with Minsc, Imoen, Jaheira and Khalid) but has been killed before the game begins.
  • Dynaheir is voiced by Jennifer Hale, who also voiced Mazzy Fentan in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal.
