Kerick is used to making his living as an assassin for hire, and bodyguard to the “soft bellies” among the local noble classes of Baldur’s Gate. He seldom talks about himself or his past, even when pressed. Kerick loves women, and as many of them as will let him. He enjoys the chase. Despite the fact that he actively pursues any woman that catches his eye, he always treats them with deference and respect, high born or low. As with most people, his views on men, women, love, and life in general, are heavily colored by his past.
I see Kerick as a discordant combination of gentleman and rogue. A chameleon, who can easily move among and be accepted by those around him as he wishes. A talent that has served him well in his dealings with both the upper classes of Baldur’s Gate and the seedier inhabitants as well. He has no compunctions about taking advantage of that talent. His weakness is a true innocent. This weakness has not often stood in his way, as he rarely sees people as such.
Kerick on reputation:
Reputation is important to Kerick as he believes that only a fool would allow their reputation to drop so low as to draw unwanted attention to themselves. He believes that one is always better able to accomplish ones goals if they can move freely within society, hated or hunted by no one. Whether or not ones true intentions are noble, how others perceive you should always remain nonthreatening. Especially if that is far from the truth. He will not long follow a leader who continually draws negative attention to themselves. He is far too fond of his own hide.
Kerick on the gods others worship:
Kerick has no problem with others that have a strong faith. Even those who have dedicated their lives to their god. He himself however, believes the gods have their own agendas and the only true interest they have in those who follow them is how they can be used to further their own cause. He believes that those who choose to follow a god are deluding themselves if they believe that their god truly cares what happens to them personally.
This mod provides a branching romance option for any elven, half-elven or human female PC of neutral to good alignment. If the PC is the kind that likes to kick puppies and kill innocents, she won’t hold his romantic interest for long, but he will put up with most of your decisions as his boss. He works for you, you make the decisions.
If Kerick takes an interest in a woman, he tends to be fairly up front about it. If your protagonist is not interested in such shenanigans, she can easily tell him that she is only interested in a business relationship via the PIDs at any time. He will respect your wishes.
Ratings are always subjective and based on personal perceptions, but I would personally rate the content within this mod as mature.
