    Ok, let's compare Khalid (NG), Kagain (LE) and Shar-Teel (CE).

    Strength
    Shar-Teel 18/58 (+2 To Hit, +3 damage)
    Kagain 16 (+1 damage)
    Khalid 15

    Dexterity
    Shar-Teel 17 (+3 AC, +2 missile THAC0)
    Kagain 12
    Khalid 16 (+2 AC, +1 missile THAC0)

    Constitution
    Shar-Teel 9
    Kagain 20 (+5 HP/level)
    Khalid 17 (+3 HP/level)

    Based on these figures IMO Khalid makes the best "tank" with both extra HP's and bonus to AC.
    If you want offense, but aren't too concerned with staying power Shar-Teel looks best.
    Look closer at some of the stats!
    Kagain's 16 Str is practically the same as Khalid's. They both need the Gauntlets of Ogre Power.
    Shar-Teel's low constitution is a great drawback (especially if you never re-roll HP-rolls) and it can't be covered like you can cover Dex or Str with gauntlets.

    You should also consider the NPC's starting weapon proficiencies.

    In conclusion, whichever one of these three you pick you should have a plan to cover their weaknesses. For Khalid the solution is simple, for the other two it's not so easy.

    How anyone can call Khalid's stats "lousy" in comparison with Shar-Teel's and especially Kagain's is beyond me!:toofar:

    Kill him, then dump him from the party.
