Gortash’s Parents have a residence in the Lower City. Find them to learn more about the tyrant in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a massive RPG filled with all kinds of secrets to discover. Act 3 ups the ante as you and your party finally reach the titular city of Baldur’s Gate. The city is even larger than the first two sections of the game. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but with time you will learn the streets and underbelly of the city through exploration.

Gortash is introduced as a primary antagonistic force at the end of Act Two. He has established himself as the Duke of the city and placed the powerful Steel Watchers around the city as his guard. It’s very easy to miss that both of his parents are alive and live in the Lower City. You can find them in their family store and learn more about the cruel tyrant’s backstory. This guide will contain some possible spoilers.

Continue around the building towards the back to find the entrance. The nearest fast travel point is the Lower City Central Wall.

Sally Flymm

Sally and Dravo Flymm work as humble cobblers in the Lower City. Speak to them, and you will get a sense that something is very wrong. Pass the Detect Thoughts check on Dravo to find his mind and thoughts empty. Do the same with Sally to really speak with her telepathically. Gortash has placed parasites in both of his parents, leaving them helpless puppets. You can learn from Sally that they sold Gortash when he was young for gold.

Decide Their Fate

Whether you decide to kill Gortash’s parents is up to you. Even if you defeat Gortash, they will still be trapped as puppets in their own home. Close the door if you want to put them out of their misery, so as not to alert any civilians or guards. They will go down quickly and each of them will give you a Mind Flayer Parasite Specimen.
