Baldur's Gate II
character who was also with you in the original Baldur's Gate
. The quest to rescue Imoen
takes up the first half of the game
and by the time you rescue
her all of your other party members will be much more powerful than she is. Nonetheless, Imoen is a vital
aspect of the plot
and should be taken into your party
anyway - she has much to reveal to you about your true nature
Perhaps most importantly, Imoen has been made vastly less annoying than she was in Baldur's Gate. Also, her thief skills are all you will ever need out of any thief in the game, so her relative weakness as a mage when you get her back is offset by the fact that she fulfills two roles in the party.
Imoen will also never desert you know matter how terrible of a bastard you are. You can kill all the townspeople you desire and she'll still stand faithfully by your side.
Class: Dual Classed Thief (until 7th level)/Mage
