Sarevok was raised as an urchin in the streets until he was adopted by his foster father into the Iron Throne. There, he studied the art of intimidation and the cruelest and most brutal styles of combat in order to become a Deathbringer that could paralyze an opponent in melee through fear alone... as well as sometimes killing the most powerful of opponents in a single, massive blow.
In the first chapter of the game, Sarevok appears as a heavily armored figure who viciously kills the protagonist's foster father Gorion. Throughout the first installment of Baldur's Gate, the player character discovers that Sarevok is his or her brother, and that both are the children of the dead god Bhaal.
Sarevok is plotting through politics and manipulation to start a war between Baldur's Gate and Amn, causing enough carnage to transform him into the new god of murder. By the time both siblings clash in a mortal battle at the end of the game, Sarevok has slain many of his kin, and is one of the strongest surviving children of the Lord of Murder.
After his death in the first part of Baldur's Gate, Sarevok makes a few brief appearances in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn as a shadow to challenge the player character. Later, he is resurrected for Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal as a non-player character that can join the protagonist's party. This is done by taking some of the divine essence from the player character or Imoen, who turns out to be Bhaalspawn as well.
By installing David Gaider's semi-official mod Ascension, which develops and clarifies Sarevok's persona (among other enhancements), it's also possible to change Sarevok's alignment and therefore his fate after the end of the game by taking the appropriate dialogue options.
Please see the Baldur's Gate series main article for information on this and other mods.
