    I really like Minsc but I'll have to say Jaheira is my favorite because she's the most thoroughly developed character, and I like a well developed character.

    My least favorite would be Anomen-- although I've never used Keldorn-- because he's too much of a noble (expletive deleted), and I can't help but think of the Lawful Good's as just as much an evil force as the actual Evils.

    There have been a thousand of these threads in the past. Do a search for "Favorite NPC."

    I never liked Edwin much. Favorite would be a toss-up between Viccy, Aerie, and Minsc.

    My least favorite NPC is easily Haer'Dalis. I had taken him on board so I could eject Viconia, who was complaining a fair bit because my party's reputation was too high. But she was nothing compared to Haer'Dalis, who was complaining virtually non-stop for no reason at all. He was constantly complaining and grumbling about everything, and I got tired of him. So, I went to Trademeet, and swapped him for Mazzy Fentan.

    My favorite NPC has to be Minsc or Jaheria. Minsc is incredibly funny and makes the game flow so smoothly. I like Jaheria because she's the most level-headed NPC, and is good when it comes to giving the important soundbites.

    I've yet to encounter Valygar, Keldorn, Anomen, Cernd or Edwin beyond a brief conversation with one or two of them. And from the brief chat I had with Anomen, I don't think I want to talk to him more than I have done.

    My favorite is Jan. His voice still makes me laugh even though I've heard it countless times now. Honestly, though, every NPC is very entertaining in some way or another. Though Cernd's a bit of a bore.

    The only one I truly hate is Anomen. What a dweeb. But at least he's continuously insulted by the other party members.

    However, if we're also counting add-on characters, Anomen's not the one I hate most. That honor would go to Chloe. I loathe her. I've already played through the game with all the original NPCs, so in my latest game I decided to have her and Kelsey in the group. She began to get on my nerves as she continually blathered on about herself, despite the fact that she's *boring*. She got even worse when I noticed that every single conversation she had with other party members was designed to make her look cool and everybody else look stupid. Unlike the similarly arrogant Anomen, nobody ever put her in her place. She really ticked me off when she demanded I kick Haer'dalis out of the group. I was intent on keeping him around since I wanted to use a jester and had switched him over to that kit. I finally gave up on her in the Sahuagin city, when she started feeding Imoen b.s. about how everything is selfish and that there's no good or evil. I kicked her out and went through the underdark short on good melee fighters. Then, when I finally reached the surface again, I went to the Den of the Seven Vales and had Haer'Dalis kill her dumb ass.

    Favourite: Jaheira of course. Not really bossy (at least not in BG2). More a woman of strong moral conviction who speaks her mind, but still respects your right to make your own decisions. Having a certain sharp wit, and a certain warmth of personality underneath her exterior certainly helps. Oh and, she's hot too.

    Least Favourite: Jan. I can respect it if somebody likes his stories. But when I tried him out, they came with such frequency, and such inanity, that I almost pulled my hair out.

    I think all the characters are very well done. Since the dialogue is most important for me Jaheira is my favorite. Hmmm... least favorite would be Valygar or Cernd -- they're just plain boring unless they're arguing with Viconia or Keldorn. Although Nalia's soundset can get annoying. The only character I really disliked in the entire series was Alora -- I really hated the soundset.
