Aura Glimmershine is a young lawful good-aligned gnome artificer and inventor from the island nation of Lantan. She is kind and idealistic at heart, and while she can be rather shy and socially inept when interacting with strangers, but easily turns peppy and excitable when the topic strays into her fields of expertise. While she is rather weak in combat, her unique thief kit, Artificer, which grants her the ability to create a large assortment of potions, traps, arcane runes and magical items that become more versatile as she gains levels.
She can be found at the Beregost town square and carries with a small selection of personal items. If the PC is female, she may show hints of romantic attraction, though there is no full romance within BG1.
In Siege of Dragonspear, she can be found in the Coast Way Forest, after leaving Baldur's Gate.
