Baldur's Gate II
character. Of all the characters in the game, Aerie is honestly my favorite
. Sure, she's multi-classed
, and if you've read my other Baldur's Gate II character lists you know how much I hate multi-classed characters (see Jaheira
)... but Aerie is the exception
Why? Because she's a cleric/mage. What that means is she acts as both your backup mage and your backup cleric... who cares if she levels out low? She does the part of two vital party components but only takes up one party slot. I love it.
Now to be honest, Aerie has issues. She's going to be constantly telling you how inadequate she feels, how scared she is and well - that can get annoying. If Jaheira is in your party she gets very snippy with Aerie. But that's just jealousy, since both characters are romance possiblities - and if they're both in your party you're pretty much forced to snub one or the other.
Class: Multi-classed Cleric/Mage
