AJANTIS
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Class: Paladin
Alignment: Lawful Good
Abilities: STR 17, DEX 13, CON 16, INT 12, WIS 13, CHA 17

A. Overall Abilities: 4+2+3+2+2+4= 17 (17/30)
B. Class Abilities: 4+2+3+4= 14 (14/20 = 21/30)
C. Fun to play: 16 (16/20)
D. Gameplay: 12 (12/15)
E. Related quest: 0 (0/5)
F. TOTAL MARK: 66%

Comments: Ajantis is a well rounded character who can also be quite fun to play. He is a strong warrior, with above the average strength and constitution, making him a natural front-liner. He also has a good charisma, which helps when trying to buy items from shops. His biggest problems are his low dexterity, which translates into a high AC, and his alignment: Lawful Good just doesn't fit with all the parties. For the gameplay I would say that he is OK, with his paladin abilities, but he just doesn't have the little extra other NPCs might have. Overall a good choice for a good-aligned party.

DYNAHEIR
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Class: Invoker
Alignment: Lawful Good
Abilities: STR 11, DEX 13, CON 16, INT 17, WIS 15, CHA 12

A. Overall Abilities: 2+2+3+4+3+2= 16 (16/30)
B. Class Abilities: 2+3+4= 9 (9/15 = 18/30)
C. Fun to play: 16 (16/20)
D. Gameplay: 11 (11/15)
E. Related quest: 0 (0/5)
F. TOTAL MARK: 61 %

Comments: Dynaheir is the only good-aligned mage in the game, making her a must for a good-aligned party if you do not wish to dual Imoen but that you want to have a mage in your party. Her intelligence and wisdom are both good, ensuring that she is a good mage with a good lore. Her constitution is also very good for a mage. What drops Dynaheir's score are the following points: first, she has a low dexterity, ensuring a really high AC, especially since she cannot wear any armor. Second, being an invoker is not that good because it is a very restrictive class: she gets no conjuration and no enchantment spells! This is a drawback, especially later in the game(think Monster Summoning, Dire Charm, Confusion, Chaos, Emotion: Hopelessness, etc.). Finally, she is paired with Minsc, so it is hard to have one and not the other(you have to kill one of them if you wish to keep only the otherů). Otherwise Dynaheir is a very potent mage with a good amount of HPs. She can stand her ground in any battle and is well employed in a good-aligned party.

YESLICK
Gender: Male
Race: Dwarf
Class: Fighter/Cleric
Alignment: Lawful Good
Abilities: STR 15, DEX 12, CON 17, INT 7, WIS 16, CHA 10

A. Overall Abilities: 3+2+4+1+3+2= 15 (15/30)
B. Class Abilities: 3+2+4= 9/15 (fighter), 3+2+4+3= 12/20 (cleric), 18/30 (overall)
C. Fun to play: 13 (13/20)
D. Gameplay: 13 (13/15)
E. Related quest: 0 (0/5)
F. TOTAL MARK: 59%

Comments: Yeslick is an average fighter and an average cleric. He has a better THACO and more HPs than an average cleric, but he takes much longer to level-up. Is it really worth it? I don't think so, but you might think otherwise. His strength is average but his constitution is very good, making him a good melee fighter. His low dexterity makes him vulnerable, though. On the cleric side, his wisdom is OK but not extraordinary. He also has Dispel Magic as a special ability, which is really nice, and infravision as he is a dwarf. As a person, he is na´ve, boring and a bit dumb. Not a great deal all in all but he'll be happy with a good-aligned party as a 2nd or 3rd fighter.

IMOEN
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Class: Thief
Alignment: Neutral Good
Abilities: STR 9, DEX 18, CON 16, INT 17, WIS 11, CHA 16

A. Overall Abilities: 1+5+3+4+2+3= 18 (18/30)
B. Class Abilities: 5+3= 8 (8/10 = 24/30)
C. Fun to play: 17 (17/20)
D. Gameplay: 13 (13/15)
E. Related quest: 0 (0/5)
F. TOTAL MARK: 72%

Comments: Imoen is one of the NPCs with the best abilities in the game! She has a very good dexterity and constitution, making her a great thief. Her high intelligence ensures that you can dual her into a mage(I recommend the conjurer) and her high charisma is very useful all through the game. She also joins you near the beginning of the game, meaning that you can distribute her thieving skill points as you like. Imoen's only weakness is her strength, but this is a minor detail as she is not a warrior. Best thief in the game? I certainly think so.
