God’s (least) favorite princess.

Shadowheart is the most romanced character in Baldur’s Gate 3 and has been nicknamed “God’s favorite princess” by the BG3 community (it’s a meme, trust me.) Apparently, this designation also makes her the most valuable character in a Baldur’s Gate 3 speedrun. She gets transformed into a bear and throws her massive ursine weight around to kill one of the game’s major bosses.

She also dies...a lot. Most of this Baldur’s Gate 3 speedrun at AGDQ 2024 involves shoving her off cliffs, using her dead body as a resource, and generally abusing one of the game’s most beloved characters.
