Beloved Ranger

A statue of a powerful warrior in plate armor stands in the Wide. Far from being the typical grim guardian, this warrior wears an enthusiastic grin and cradles a hamster in his hands. The late Orburt Lewel, an eccentric textiles merchant, erected the statue about seventy years ago. According to legend, the featured figure is Minsc, a dull-witted but brave warrior of Rashemen who saved Lewel’s life from some forgotten danger. The hamster is Boo, a pet that Minsc referred to as a “giant pygmy space hamster”.

The quirky statue is a favorite landmark and meeting spot in the ever changing sea of market stalls, both because it’s easy to spot and because Baldur’s Gate loves its peculiar characters.
