Can You Romance Shadowheart and Astarion in Baldur's Gate 3: Poly Romances

When it comes to romances in Baldur’s Gate 3, the creators have given us pretty much everything. And if you want to Romance Shadowheart and Astarion in BG3 as a poly romance, I’ve got you covered.

BG3 has given us the freedom to explore sexualities, like romancing Shadowheart as a female. So poly romances seem like a possibility to us, but is it possible with Shadowheart and Astarion?

Read on to find out if you can romance Shadowheart and Astarion in Baldur’s Gate 3 and how to romance each of them individually.

Can You Romance Shadowheart and Astarion in BG3?

Yes! You can romance both Shadowheart and Astarion in BG3, but it won’t be easy.

While you can romance Shadowheart and Astarion, keep in mind that you can only do so up to a point. Just like with Astarion and Gale, you will eventually have to choose one.

One important thing I have noticed about Shadowheart during my gameplay is that Shadowheart isn’t very flexible when it comes to poly romances.

Shaowheart gets jealous when you spend time with others, and interestingly, Astarion shares this nature. This means that you can ultimately only be with either of them.
