New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I've been playing through BG2EE recently with Jaheira and Aerie in the party. I've noticed a lot of times on this forum people will talk about how much they hate/are annoyed by both of these characters. I'm wondering if people who hate Jaheira also hate Aerie or vice-verca.
The reason I ask is because these characters are polar opposites. On one end you have Jaheira who is a strong willed woman who knows her mind and is not afraid to speak it. She is wise in the ways of the world and has seen much in her time with the Harpers. On the other end you have Aerie who is naive and innocent in the ways of the world. She hasn't seen much outside of the circus and is very timid.
Both of these characters can be romanced and neither of them is bad as far as abilities go. Their voices are very different as well. They are both far from being 1 dimensional characters and they each grow over the course of the game.
What I'm most curious about are the people who dislike both characters. If neither are appealing what characters do you find appealing and why?
