Like its predecessor, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous you will also be able to travel with an eclectic band of companions. All in all, there are over a dozen companions in Pathfinder WotR, some of which can only join under specific circumstances. Also, since there are romances in the game, many of these are also romanceable characters. In this Companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous guide, we will take a look at all of these, so that you can start planning your party and character builds on time.
Companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous
Hers is the list of all the companions in the game. This includes their race, class, as well as where you can recruit them, and if there are any other special considerations (such as Mythic Path exclusivity) associated with them.
- Seelah. The first companion you will meet in the game in the Kanebres underground, Seelah is a Human Paladin. Of course, that also makes her alignment Lawful Good by default. Her Paladin abilities are well suited for combat against demons and other evil creatures. After you solve the color gem puzzle in the Shield Maze, you will be rewarded with the longsword Radiance. This holy blade can only be wielded by a Paladin and is the ideal weapon for her, especially since it can be upgraded during the course of the game.
- Camellia. The second companion, you will encounter her a short distance away from Seelah. She is a Human Spirit Hunter Shaman. Her alignment is obscured, for reasons you will find out later in the game.
- Lann. A Mongrelman Zen Archer Monk, Lann is a very sarcastic character. He is of Lawful Neutral alignment and his skill with a bow makes him very well suited for most parties. Along with Wenduag, he is also found in the Kanebres underground. At first you will be able to travel with both of them, but soon you will have to make a choice of who you want to stick with. Our Lann or Wenduag guide covers the pros, cons, and ramifications of this choice.
- Wenduag. The Neutral Evil counterpart to Lann, Wenduag is a Mongrelman Fighter that likewise specializes in bows and ranged combat. She respects strength, and is a great choice for evil-aligned Main Characters.
- Ember. This Elf Stigmatized Witch comes with a tragic backstory. When she was a child, Crusaders tried to burn her at the stake. However, this hasn’t made her grow bitter or evil. Quite the opposite, being Neutral Good, she is one of the purest and nicest characters in the game. You will find her in the Market Square, being accosted by Crusaders once again, and in need of rescue. Note that you will need to do this before the attack on Defender’s Heart (which happens after three in-game days), or she will be lost forever and you won’t be able to recruit her.
- Woljif Jefto. If your party is missing a thief, then this Tiefling Eldritch Scoundrel Rogue could easily fill that spot. You can find him in the basement of Defender’s Heart and negotiate his release. Being Chaotic Neutral, he, naturally, has very loose morals, especially when it comes to concepts like personal property.
- Daeran. Not every Aasimar is good, as Daeran proves. Though he is an Aasimar Oracle, he is, unexpectedly, also Neutral Evil. This rich and pampered noble also holds a very dark secret that you will uncover as the game progresses. You will meet him during the Arendae Party House quest.
- Nenio. A Human (or is she?) Scroll Savant Wizard, Nenio is interested in just one thing – knowledge. Her True Neutral alignment reflects this. The first time you meet this eccentric character is during a random encounter in Kanebres.
- Sosiel. You will be able to get this Human Cleric in your party in the Crusader’s Camp. Like Ember, he is also Neutral Good and his healing abilities can both heal allies and damage undead.
- Regill. A curiosity among his people, Regill is a Gnome Armiger Fighter – Hell Knight. Being Lawful Evil, this bleak Hell Knight cares only about one thing – law and order, at any cost. He can be recruited after completing the Walking by Hell quest. Cruel and unwavering, he is another character who will feel right at home in most evil parties.
- Greybor. This Dwarf Slayer is a bounty hunter. Though you will encounter him early on in the game, this True Neutral Dwarf can only be a member of your party once you hire him to help you with The Dragon Hunt quest.
- Arueshalae. A veritable oddity, Arueshalae is a Succubus Espionage Expert Ranger. Unlike her Demon breather who are always Chaotic Evil, she is Chaotic Neutral instead and is actively seeking the path to redemption. You can get her to join you earlier if you have chosen to become an Azata and finished the Desna Shrine in Lost Bastion. If that is the case, she can be found in Drezen Prison. If that isn’t the case, she will still join up with you after the Demon’s Heresy quest.
- Delamere. A special companion, you can only get this Undead Ranger if you have selected the Lich as your Mythic Path. If that is the case, you will then be able to raise her in the Temple of the Good Hunt.
- Staunton Vhane. Another special companion, he is Dwarf or Undead War Priest. You can only get him if you are an Aeon or Lich. You can redeem him in the former case or raise him as undead in the latter.
- Trever. Sosiel’s brother, Trever has done quite a lot of multiclassing. He is a Chaotic Neutral Human Paladin/Hellknight/Two-Handed Fighter/Armored Hulk/Pit Fighter. You will be able to recruit him during Sosiel’s personal quest, under specific circumstances – Trever needs to survive, obviously.
- Finnean. Finnean isn’t a full-fledged companion per se, but he likes to think of himself as one. A sentient weapon, Finnean can transform into any weapon type. He also upgrades as the story progresses. This makes him a great weapon choice if you want to have your character specialize in a rare weapon type. Also, his Ghost Touch feature means that he can easily hurt even incorporeal creatures, such as the Shadow Demon in the Market Square basement. You can find him in the Ancientries and Wonders Shop.
