    My least favorite is definately Cernd the rock.

    And my favorite... well... I'm not sure I should admit this since I was the only one who voted for him... and he's in first place as least favorite... but I LOVE ANOM- (get pelted to death with rocks before finishing)

    I like Yoshimo the best. Despite the fact that he betrays you he dosen't do so willingly. No doubt Jon lies to him, telling Yoshimo that the PC is an evil bastard (when the PC is good) so he would feel no regrets to betraying the PC. His alignment is really Neutral-Good as far as I can see, his personality is very similar to Imoen's. However he has to be True-Neutral in game to complain about the PC having too high a reputation, Yoshimo isn't comfortable knowing that he must betray this person.

    I hate Nalia. In SoA she's too whiny about everything. You don't give a begger all your gold she snaps at you. She eventually becomes an arrogant mage...

    dito with what Sarevok- said
    I was surprised how many people disliked Nalia, sure she is a useless thief, mage and human, but considering the whining incompitant pre teenage git of a mage/cleric is around I cannot comprehend putting Nalia as my least favourite.


    go Edwin!!!!!!!!

    Edwin definitely is the funniest and strongest character in my opinion. He gets my vote as the best one.

    For some reason I just hate Jaheira, I just can't stand her... I killed her and kept khalid in BG1, and in BG2 I just kill her or leaves her to rot in the prison. Serves her right! While she is rather pretty, surely you can see that Viconia is prettiest, no? And she isn't as irritating.

    Most Favorite? Aerie, if not for the dialog then for the insane amount of spells she can throw around, expecially when equipped with the Robe of Vecna.

    Least Favorite? Anomen. It would have been Keldorn, but for a Paladin he's not that bad. Anomen on the other hand always seems to be 'accidentally' run through by my party during the Copper Coronet battle with the Slavers.

    Favorite: Haer
    Least Favourite: Korgan, Anomen

    Korgan: It's got nothing to do with his abilities - I just despise his personality. I don't hate him as much when I take Minsc along, though.

    Anomen: At any time before he becomes LG, I am tempted to take his items, unmemorize his spells and have him walk to a village of goblins.
    But LG, I find him very nice to have around.

    Favourite: Aerie. Great romance, especially in certain expansions that will not be mentioned in the SoA fourm. As for all those people who think that she's "whiny", well, she's certainly got every right to be a little upset, with the wings and all. Seriously, if you saved some kid's life, and it resulted in you being captured and kept in a cage until your legs rotted off, then I doubt your personality would be all sunshine all the time as well.

    Least Favourite: Cernd. It's not enough that he's some deadbeat who'll run out on his wife to be "one with nature". Or that, as characters go, he's just a second rate tank. No, it's the dialogue. From a roleplaying perspective, I could never imagine talking to the guy.

    PC: Ah, well, Cernd, time for your watch now.

    Cernd: Truly, as the vigilant owl watches all that move in the night, so I shall keep alert, so that no evil shall approach. Should I see danger, I shall be as the rooster, to emit a loud noise to wake everybody to meet the threat.

    PC: Ah... sure, whatever floats your boat. I'm going to bed.

    Cernd: May your sleep be as peaceful of that of the hibernating bear, or of nature herself when the embrace of winter takes hold.

    Me: Reforms party, kicks Cernd out.

    Haven't had too many different characters, but I liked Jaheria just because she is a good tank, and when it comes down to taking out wizards, she kicks arse there too.

    Nalia gets the thumbs down just because she whines. If I have Nalia in the party, I just get my PC to load the crossbow and... :evil:

    Favourite:- Keldorn 'Sean Connery' Firecam.
    Disliked:- 'Whingy Whiny' Aerie.

    I like good solid characters that are confident in their own abilities...Keldorn, Korgan, Anomen.

    Not aerie fairy characters that whine all the time...Aerie, Nalia, Valygar.

    Give me someone who, when I kill someone who deserved killing, will say "Good riddance to that scum, the bastard had it coming", rather than someone who will say "Oh dear, did you have to kill him".
