Halsin is unique among the game's romance options in that he is one of two romanceable companions who are not Origin characters. Halsin made his debut during early access, being a pivotal character that players seek out throughout the first half of Act 1 in Baldur's Gate 3, and who sets the player on the path towards Moonrise Towers, leading to the second Act of the game.
