So thieves are important in Baldur's Gate. If you don't believe that, try doing without one for half a game, at which point you will be willing to accept just about any thief into your party. Which is how I ended up with Alora.
Whose bright idea was it to make one a six year old one of the two good-aligned thieves in the game? Did someone think that would make the game more appealing to children? I suppose it probably does, but dear Lord! She is driving me slightly nuts.
Its hard to imagine her being more annoying than she already is.
I could turn character sounds off, but I have a bad habit of accidentally commanding the wrong character (particularly after I've left the inventory screen) so I kinda need the verbal confirmation that I have told the right character to do what I want.
