[WARNING: Possible SPOILERS ahead for those who have not completed TOB]
Having just completed TOB, I was still left with several nagging queries that continue to puzzle me regarding the backstory of Baldur's Gate and the mainCHAR's(MC) history.
I have several questions that I hope BG scholars here are able to help me out!
1) If MC was saved by Gorion and his Harper gang from being murdered/sacrificed by MC's mother, a priestess of Bhaal, what about Imoen? Was she, like MC, one of the children that was also saved by Gorion during their infiltration into Bhaal's temple? If she is, why did Gorion only 'focus' on you - getting you out of Candlekeep and ensuring your safety, but NOT Imoen who is also a Bhaalspawn? Was she adopted from another place and at another time, and therefore her Bhaalspawn origins were kept in the dark from the Harpers?
2) Why is Bhaal or why does Bhaal, the Lord of Murder, adopt a Slayer form? Wasn't he an assassin back when he was a mortal? I always thought he should look more like the figure of MASK, the Lord of Shadows: agile, sinister, dark, death-like Voldemort-looking figure. Why does he look like a Pit Fiend - a devil?
These are the 2 most pressing questions I have amongst others. Looking forward to all your responses!
