    Um, maybe Bodhi would be nice if she wouldn't try to bore you to death with her monologues.

    If you're a vampire you should bore only with your teeth. No holes to suck out your life come from incessant prattling, except bored ***holes with their will to live not decreased but their will to give pain increased, which is why Bodhi gets what she deserves.

    I just hope that you could torture her to permanent death and this is not an S/M thing.

    But luckily when she's on your side she's got the point and shuts up for the most of the time. Then she's :thumb:

    edit: and actually Aerie is very very attractive. I've got a soft spot for over-emotional messes like her. She's pretty, naive and sensitive. That is just so sweet.

    And that blast from the past thing at the ruined temple in ToB? I actually shed a few tears, for the voice acting was so touching, and well done. I get the same thing with emotional Jaheira dialogues as well, but that's because Jaheira's been there right from the beginning, so that when she's lost something you feel that too, since you've permanently lost a sympathetic NPC as well.

    editII: oh yeah this was about the coolest female NPC!!! :outta:

    Jaheira is my girl, hands down! She definitely is an all around babe. Good looking, independant, no nonsense attitude, tough, capable, loyal and yet some very intriguing dialoge.

    Hard to say, really. Jaheira is somewhere there, although it's not like Imoen isn't. Nalia was quite interesting and not bad despite being, after all, still a condescending confused little snob. Aerie wasn't as whiny as people say and she definitely was a good and kind girl. Just recall how she lost her wings.

    HAhaHAHA REALLY! I thought most people would find her to be an annoying rich kid that is just a waste of space in BGII ... As I do! I could understand why people would take her if they were compensating for Imoen, but umm I'm sure they rid themselves of her after that yeah?

    Nalia is the best non-evil mage in the game and she is no more annoying than eny of the other NPCs so I struggle to see what the problem is with her. Jaheira, Mazzy, and Aerie are every bit as whiny as she is.

    Imoen. Treat her like absolute shyte, and she's still with you to the bitter end, cheerful as ever. Now name any other woman that would do that. :)

    Phaere. I like dark elves and Phaere is seductive, manipulative and dangerous.

    Veconia no contest.


    @Harbourboy
    Huh? Nalia is the worst ever, whatever you do she whines about that your not making enough good deeds. To be honest I actually killed her in one game just because I got so angry.

    I never liked her, but you really don't like her do you?

    Normally play as a Chaotic character, Stardust?

    Given time Nalia isn't as annoying after you rescue her from Isaea, she is greatful for being rescued and thankful to have a home in your party. This shows some growth and maturity on her part, what more do you want. Plus she is the best good aligned mage in the game.

    Sounds like your rep got a bit low for Nalia.
