Thisobald Thorm in Baldur's Gate 3

A Baldur’s Gate 3 player has found out that one of the main bosses in Act 2 is hiding a secret nobody noticed before, and shared their suspicions with the community.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a game that has tons of secrets left to be uncovered, and as players progress throughout their adventures, they will surely share their findings with the community. Like this player, who stumbled across something that has been ignored by many fans of Larian Studio’s blockbuster title.

The player has noticed recently that one of the bosses in Act 2 has a particular design that makes it resemble one of the most famous creatures in Dungeons and Dragons lore: A centaur.

Though ‘TheEmperorofWalruses’ shared this post with the community, players are still confused about the mysterious origin of Thisobald Thorm, one of Ketheric Thorm’s generals.

The OP stated that they felt “embarrassed” to notice so late that Thisobald Thorm was secretly a centaur, and then showcased a 3D model of the boss, where we can clearly see this enemy is quadrupedal.

“Not a centaur, though, just a 4 legged aberration,” a savvy Baldur’s Gate 3 player commented. And it is true, though this monstrosity could be called a centaur due to its general body part disposition, it is certainly not a part of the centaur race lore-wise.

Meanwhile, another BG3 player observed: “His lower half is that of a pig which I think is more of the curse turning them into what their biggest sin captures best.”

Though it is true that this creature is probably the result of the curse that befell the Thorm family after their betrayal, some players are still trying to figure out if the curse itself deformed Thisobal or if it was always a “centaur creature thing.”

So there you have it, Baldur’s Gate 3 devs might not have added centaurs as a playable race in the game, but there’s certainly one creature that resembles one.
