In a trip down the memory lane post, the official Beamdog blog, or Beamblog if you will, lists the companions you can take along on your amnesia-battling adventure in Planescape: Torment, together with their corresponding voice actors. Of course, there's nothing new for old-time Planescape fans there, but it's still quite amusing to read, especially if you aren't aware just how well-known some of the people behind the companions' voices are. An excerpt:
Fighter/mage Dak’kon is githzerai, a race whose people live in Limbo where the form of matter itself can be held together by concentration. Dak'kon is a scholar of githzerai mysticism, and travels to better understand the special teachings hidden in the Circle of Zerthimon. A player character with high Wisdom should read the Unbroken Circle of Zerthimon, found in Dak'kon's backpack, and discuss its contents with Dak'kon to discover the history of githzerai.
Mitch Pileggi, best known for his role as Walter Skinner on The X-Files, voiced Dak’kon.
Nordom Whistleklik, or Nordom, is a Modron – a mechanical creature from the logical and lawful plane of Mechanus, where Law and Order are taken to extreme. Nordom is the only party member who use missile weapons – in this case, two crossbows. Nordom a hidden character. Here’s a hint to find him: visit the Curiosity Shop and check the list of exotic items there.
Dan Castellaneta, famous his long-running role as Homer Simpson The Simpsons, voiced Nordom.
Vhailor is a restless spirit inhabiting the rusting armor of a Mercykiller. There’s only one truth for Vhailor – justice, and he’s ready to cast judgement on everyone. He is a fighter with powerful attacks, a substantial supply of hit points, and resistances to both physical and magical attacks. You can find Vhailor later in the game in a magically sealed prison cell.
Vhailor is voiced by Keith David, known for his role as Childs in John Carpenter's The Thing. Vhailor's Helm appears in Baldur's Gate 2, and grants Simulacrum once per day.
