Divinity Wiki

Tags are character traits that affect others perception of the individual in Divinity: Original Sin II. Race, occupation and fame are some key tags that may affect interactions with others, opening as many doors as they can close. Tags referring to Origin, Starter or Gender types are defined at the start of the game and can't be changed anymore. Race can be temporary changed using the Mask of the Shapeshifter.

Tag types[]


Gender tags determine, in what way others refer to you. These tags are determined during character creation and cannot be changed during the game itself.

Origin tags are tags exclusive to origin characters and companions. They cannot be changed during the game and they are accompanied by a set of starter tags that (save for one) cannot be changed or added.

Beast Your failed rebellion against the Queen nearly destroyed you - so you began a new life on the high seas. Now, your old enemy is back. If you don't stop her, no-one will.
Fane You woke up and your world was gone. The last of your kind, you hide behind a charmed mask, searching for the truth about a history that no-one knew existed.
Ifan A crusader in Lucian's army, you lost your faith as war claimed countless innocents. Now, you're a Lone Wolf mercenary. Your mission? Kill Lucian's son.
Lohse You're a musician: performer, star, and host to all manner of disembodied voices. Now, one dark voice has silenced them all and aims to claim your body for itself.
