Kaidala is an optional party member in Neverwinter Nights: Kingmaker, where she fights alongside the player providing support and healing. As a nymph, she has a strong connection to nature and the player character is able to romance her (regardless of their gender) in order to gain her trust. If they are successful in establishing a relationship with her, the grove that Kaidala oversees will be replanted. Some fans have referenced her as being a part of Bioware’s first female/female relationship (if the player character is female), due to her bisexual identity.
