Pillars of Eternity Wiki

In response to patch v1. to Pillars of Eternity (June 6, 2024), the random loot tables shown on the wiki have been updated. These changes may take time to propegate.

As a result, random loot data is no longer accurate to old versions of the game, including all console ports. We'll be working to provide a mechanism to switch between pre-patch and post-patch loot for console players.


Pillars of Eternity Wiki

Marius is a mountain dwarf and a recruitable companion in Avowed.

Background[ | ]

Marius is a recent transplant from Solace, an isolated Pargrun keep in the harsh region of Galawain's Tusks. Born into one of the most uninhabitable areas in the Living Lands, Marius learned quickly how to survive, and even thrive, in the wilderness, becoming one of the Lands' most sought-after hunters and guides. The downside is, now that he has left Solace for the wider wilderness, he has yet to find a place to call home, and he feels far more comfortable facing the dangers and hazards of the wild than he does among the comforts of civilization.
