Using every character in the Baldur's Gate Series & all strongholds

I intend to make at least 8 playthroughs (doing all 8 BG2 strongholds, 1 per playthrough) of the series, and I want to use all companions at least once in at least one of the playthroughs (not necessarily all in one playthrough, just at least once in at at least one playthrough), so I if I may ask, how would you do so?

for example:

BG/SoD/BG2/ToB

Fighter (can include multi or dual) PC
NPC 1
NPC 2
NPC 3
NPC 4
NPC 5

similar concept for all other classes (strongholds)

    I tried to add in all playable races, all romances, the companion alignment changes I am aware of with each PC being of a different alignment and so that it still makes a minimum of sense RP-wise.
    I probably forgot or overlooked quite a few things...

    Currently, my list looks like this (groups with which we END the games):

    1
    LG male Human Paladin
    Stronghold: Paladin
    Romances: Glint, Aerie
    Companions BG1: Imoen, Khalid, Jaheira, Minsc, Dynaheir
    Companions SoD: Glint, Khalid, Jaheira, Minsc, Dynaheir
    Companions BG2: Imoen, Jaheira, Minsc, Mazzy, Aerie

    2
    NG female Human or Half-Elven Bard
    Stronghold: Bard
    Romances: Rasaad
    Companions BG1: Imoen, Ajantis, Rasaad, Xan, Yeslick
    Companions SoD: Rasaad, Corwin, Minsc, Dynaheir, Glint (or any non-evil combo)
    Companions BG2: Imoen->Yoshimo->Imoen, Keldorn, Rasaad, Jaheira, Nalia

    3
    CG female Elven Ranger
    Stronghold: Ranger
    Romances: Corwin, Anomen
    Companions BG1: Alora, Coran, Kivan, Xan, Quayle
    Companions SoD: Corwin, Voghlin, any (Minsc, Dynaheir and Glint OR Neera, Safana and M'Khiin OR...)
    Companions BG2: Imoen, Anomen (→ LG OR CN), Jan, Haer'Dalis, Sarevok (→ CG)

    4
    LN male Halfling Barbarian
    Stronghold: Fighter
    Romances: Safana, Jaheira
    Companions BG1: Imoen, Khalid, Jaheira, Safana, any (Xan, Neera or Edwin)
    Companions SoD: Khalid, Jaheira, Safana, any (Neera or Edwin), any who is not CG or CE
    Companions BG2: Imoen, Jaheira, Valygar, any (maybe Jan), any who is not CG or CE

    5
    N male Half-Elven Fighter/Druid
    Stronghold: Druid
    Romances: Viconia
    Companions BG1: Imoen, Viconia, Edwin, Branwen, Garrick
    Companions SoD: Safana or Glint, Viconia, Edwin, M'Khiin, Voghlin
    Companions BG2: Viconia (→ N), Edwin, Nalia/Jan/Imoen, Cernd, Wilson
    Note: Reputation should be kept at 9-10, keyword here is "balance" ;-)

    6
    CN female Gnome Fighter/Illusionist
    Stronghold: Mage
    Romances: Voghlin, Hexxat
    Companions BG1: Skie, Eldoth, Tiax, any, any
    Companions SoD: Voghlin, any, any, any, any
    Companions BG2: Hexxat, any, any, any, any
    Note: Maximum swap parties! As long as our companions don't kill each other, we are fine.
    Pairs can be separated, we are a bit mad. Evil PCs may do the same.

    7
    LE female (or male) Dwarven Fighter/Cleric
    Stronghold: Cleric
    Romances: Dorn
    Companions BG1: Dorn, Kagain, Montaron, Xzar, Faldorn
    Companions SoD: Dorn, any, any, any, any
    Companions BG2: Dorn, any, any, any, any

    8
    NE male Half-Orc Fighter/Thief
    Stronghold: Thief
    Romances: Neera
    Companions BG1: Shar-Teel, Baeloth, Neera, Faldorn, any
    Companions SoD: Baeloth, Neera, any, any, any
    Companions BG2: Neera, Korgan, any, any, any
    (If possible, CN Anomen here, then the Elven Ranger will „convert“ him to CG)

    6 or 7 probably will side with Bodhi before sailing to Spellhold
    7 or 8 will help the Shadow Druids vs. Aldeth
    ...
    ?
