Baldur's Gate series

Several figures stand in a medieval street. A text overlay reads, 'Tiax: Thou wouldst presume to speak to Tiax the Great? Thy bravery is oddly tempered with foolishness. Still, Cyric has decreed that I seek out the services of one such as thyself. Tiax himself - myself - will aid in your quest. In return, when the time is right, your might will forge the way for my ascension to power. Do you accept this honor?' and responses include, 'So you wish to aid me... and in return... I help you... dominate the planet. Ohhhkay. Just let me know when you are going to ascend.', 'I rather think not, you demented little man.', and 'What makes you think you are going to rule everything? That's a pretty big job for such a... diminuitive fellow.'

Although the original Baldur's Gate does not include any same-gender romance options, player-characters who are men are able to romance Aerie, Jaheira, and Viconia in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, and player-characters who are women have Anomen as a same-gender romance option. In the game's 'Enhanced Edition', there are additional options for same-gender relationships, including a bisexual male half-orc blackguard and a lesbian human vampire thief. Unfortunately, both of these options are villainous, so the player-character cannot remain 'good' within the game and have a same-gender romance.

Baldur's Gate II also allows the Tiefling bard Her'Dalis to make use of a male Drow sex slave; the developers have said that he is 'up for anything', which potentially implies that he is considered to be a pansexual character, or else just sexually curious.

The Siege of Dragonspear expansion to Baldur's Gate feature Mizhena, a trans shopkeeper who reveals her gender identity to the player in dialogue.
