Failing to save Zevlor in Baldur’s Gate 3 Act 2 has bafflingly disgusting outcome

Zevlor in Baldur's Gate 3

Zevlor doesn’t have to be saved in Baldur’s Gate 3, but beware that if you don’t, you could be met with a grisly sight when you return to camp. 

Pretty much from the moment you reach Act 2 of Baldur’s Gate 3, you are told you need to save the Tieflings, and more specifically, Zevlor. Despite everyone talking about it all the time, it is actually quite easy to miss him and accidentally leave him for dead in the Illithid Colony

So, as a result, some players have missed the Tiefling and moved on happily to Act 3. Until, of course, they find out that Orin gets hold of his body for a little bit of her own disgusting gain.

“So I just found out that if you don’t save Zevlor in the oubliette in Act 2, Orin drops his naked and note-gagged corpse into your camp,” ‘CheesecakeCommon2406’ shared on the Baldur’s Gate 3 Reddit

To explain without going into too much detail, if you don’t save Zevlor in Act 2, Orin will drop his corpse in your camp, and include a picture of herself surrounded by some kind of shrine stuck in his mouth. It’s not what you’d call a pleasant scene, and it certainly didn’t warm players to Orin.

From what it seems, Zevlor’s body also actually just stays in your camp if you don’t do something about it. Orin drops him in a puddle, leaves, and is probably laughing somewhere in her lair while you need to clean up her mess. 

Players in the comments empathized with the OP, many saying that they have a difficult time feeling anything but the ick for Orin because she pulls stuff like this all the time. However, there were some that argued she was more than just a murderer.

“I wonder what would have happened if the one who got another chance at life was Orin instead of Dark Urge. I wonder if she would still have innate murder tendencies (we know for a fact she wouldn’t have the Urges, since her blood isn’t “pure”),” one player commented.

Whether you trust she could have turned out differently or not, she does make it clear that it may have been the best decision to save Zevlor in the end, even if just to save you from the horrible sight of his mangled corpse.
