|“||Quayle talks for a good hour about his worship of Baravar Cloakshadow, how he is well on his way to mastering sorcery, and just generally how incredibly smart he is compared to everyone else in the party. He was apparently encouraged to strike out on his own as soon as he came of age because, as he claims, he was simply too gifted to remain in that stifling environment. You get the feeling, however, that no one was terribly broken up over his leaving. He says that he apprenticed in the arts of magic and the worship of Baravar under a gnome named Gifos, though it was not long before this teacher also sent him on his way. Since then, Quayle has wandered the Sword Coast looking for people who were willing to accept his "his wisdom and instruction." It has likely been a long walk.||”|
|— Character description from the Baldur's Gate computer game|
Quayle is a whiny, foul-tempered, arrogant gnome with a nasal voice who believes that he is a genius and that all those around him are idiots who should acknowledge his super-intelligence. He appears in both the Baldur's Gate computer game and novelization.

The Games Edit
Quayle was found lurking near the bridge to Baldur's Gate, and attempted to force his way into the party regardless of what was said to him. Quayle was the only party member in the first game capable of casting both arcane and divine spells. If placed in a party with Tiax, the two would argue a lot.
In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn Quayle appeared again, transformed by powerful illusions into a slime by Kalah. Once rescued from that fate it appeared that Quayle's personality seemed to have mellowed, perhaps aided by the adoption of Aerie and conversion to the faith of Baervan Wildwanderer. In spite of having been near Baldur's Gate in the last game, he had also managed to spend some time in a circus touring Amn and Tethyr along with Aerie. Aerie may later name her child after him.
