Daeran is a Companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Companions assist the player by joining his/her party and have their own backstories and unique characteristics. They all have their own Classes and equipment they begin with.
Falling victim to a deadly demonic plot would be enough to give anyone a grim outlook on life and on the looming threat from the Abyss. But the young man count Daeran is a contrary soul.
He sees the world as a grand playground and seems to turn a blind eye to the self-sacrifice of the crusaders and the horrors of war. Feats and frivolity, banquets and banter. Daeran lives like the world is ending, and it very well might be.
Daeran joins your party with the following statistics:
Class: Oracle 3
Feats: Selective Channel, Extra Channel
Skill Ranks: Persuade (3 ranks), Knowledge Arcana (3 ranks), Knowledge World (3 ranks)
Oracle Mystery: Life
Oracle Curse: Powerless Prophecy
Oracle Revelations: Channel, Safe Curing
How to Recruit Daeran
- You will encounter Daeran at the Arendae Party House. You will have to defeat several demons attacking his manor and then will have the choice to recruit him into your party.

Daeran is a Life Mystery Oracle and is the best healer of all recruitable characters. In addition to learning every Cure Wounds spell automatically without needing to memorize it, the Oracle spell list has plenty of strong support spells to back up the party, like Prayer, Owl's Wisdom, and Protection from Evil, along with their party-wide versions. After getting a few mythic tiers, some spell penetration feats, and the Abundant Casting line, he will also start becoming a very effective blaster, particularly if he gets a second Mystery to get access to even more potent offensive spells.
Arrogant and hedonistic, Daeran always believes in living life to the fullest, without regard to the consequences to himself or others. He has a great love of sarcasm and enjoys talking down to people. He claims in a conversation with Woljif that he dosen't view commoners or nobles as any different: He treats everyone with the same level of disdain, regardless of their rank or status. He loves throwing wild parties and one of his favorite activities involves taking someone arrogant down a peg, such as when he threw a drunken party on a boat in the harbor, which was outside of Inquisitor Hulrun's jurisdiction due to being on the water, specifically to mock him. This ironic disdain for arrogance and authority even extends towards the gods. Despite being an Oracle, he is atheistic, not paying mind to any of the gods and especially not Iomedae, whom he sees as especially prideful and dosen't miss the chance to insult her when she arrives during the return to Drezen. He apparently once commissioned a lewd painting of Iomedae called "The True Test of the Starstone," further showing his disdain for her.
Above all, Daeran values his own freedom to do as he wishes. This comes from his divine 'patron' being "The Other," an eldritch undead collection of spirits that uses Daeran as it's host. It uses Daeran's eyes to see the world and uses him to commit terrible deeds. Daeran is terrified of this thing which uses him, knowing that, if he ever stepped out of line, it could kill him with a thought. After having The Other sucessffully extracted from him, Daeran is extremley grateful to the commander. However, when Inquisitor Hawkblade claims that he wishes to put Daeran on trial and potentially locked away in an asylum, he claims he would rather die than stay in such a place for the rest of his days. Depending on whether or not Daeran trusts the Commander, his ending slide can potentially show that he indeed spends the rest of his life in an insane asylum, or his trial concludes that he is no threat and is free to go. Alternatively, the Commander can simply kill Hawkblade to ensure Daeran's innocence and freedom are both preserved, an act which Daeran shows genuine gratitude and happiness over.
Romance: Daeran is pansexual, romancable by any character on any Mythic path except Swarm. After his recruitment, Daeran will actively attempt to court the Commander, consistently initiating dialogue while adventuring to comment on the current situation and offer witty remarks, as well as giving the Commander gifts of rings and roses in Drezen, often under the guise of being grateful, friendly, or eccentric. He will continue performing these acts until he is directly told to stop doing so. Picking either polite or sarcastic dialogue options will only encourage him. Uniquely, he is the only companion to be open to a polyamorous relationship, (similar to Octavia and Regongar in Kingmaker) but the other potential love interests are not, forcing the Commander to choose one during Act 5.
