Baldo was a travel guide who appeared in Shadow Games. He and a companion nicknamed Wheezer were summoned by the monks of the Temple of Travellers' Repose to act as a guides for the Black Company during their journey south. Baldo and Wheezer were both short, elderly, "wizened" natives of D'loc Aloc and would get their nicknames from Goblin. Croaker considered Baldo to be "almost normal" whereas Wheezer was "a second-rate soul son of One-Eye, full of ridiculous mischief".
Baldo turned back early despite his contract to stay with the group for a longer period, and left the Company at the southern boundary of D'loc Aloc. As a consequence he received a smaller fee than what he had been promised. Wheezer chose to stay with them and was admitted as a Company brother.
