Can You Romance Raphael in Baldur’s Gate 3

If you’re wondering about the Baldur’s Gate 3 Raphael romance, then the answer is “no.” To be more specific, you don’t actually get to sleep with Raphael himself, but there’s an incubus that bears a striking resemblance to him. The incubus’ name is Haarlep, and you meet them in the devil’s domain in Avernus. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Going to Raphael’s domain is part of the Free Orpheus and Deal With the Devil quests. Certain decisions will give you a reason to go there, such as obtaining the Orphic Hammer or stealing your contract.
  • The portal that leads to it is created via Helsik’s Ritual in the Devil’s Fee in the Lower City.
  • We discuss the important parts related to the objective in our House of Hope guide. Still, it’s worth mentioning that the entire area is filled with debtors enslaved by the devil.

As you explore, you’ll eventually learn of a way to obtain the Orphic Hammer: you’ll need to pass through the Mystic Force Curtain to enter the Boudoir. There, you’ll find Haarlep eager to tempt you. As mentioned earlier, Haarlep looks just like your ol’ devil pal–“Haarlep” is just a rearrangement of “Raphael,” after all.
