Can a male half orc romance Viconia in a standard BG2EE install?

I’ve read conflicting reports over on Reddit and it piqued my curiosity, so why not ask the experts!

    Yes, of the vanilla characters Viconia is the only romance option for a half-orc male

    Yes. I'm currently romancing both Viconia and Anomen in my "Dorn It" run.

    Admittedly, the latter is based on some trickery - I started the campaign with a female halfling protagonist before Dorn killed her and took over, and that set the "match" variable for Anomen irrevocably.

    The romance requirements:
    Anomen - female human, half-elf, elf, or halfling
    Aerie - male human, half-elf, elf, halfling, or gnome
    Jaheira - male human, half-elf, or halfling
    Viconia - male human, half-elf, halfling, or half-orc

    The Beamdog NPCs are considerably looser about it, though unlike the Bioware NPCs their gender checks are only done when the relevant NPC is in the party.
    Hexxat - any female
    Neera - any male
    Rasaad - any female
    Dorn - anything that moves. If you're playing a doppelganger with gender "NIETHER", he'll still go for you.

    That would be "male PC" for these three imho.

    Right, fixed. And it goes without saying that the protagonist (player 1) is the one that all of these race and gender checks apply to.

    Flying eyeballs, oozes, humanoids, he is not one to be picky, with either loving or killing!

    Worth noting that Rasaad won't romance just any woman. She has to have the good alignment too. He is, as far as I know, the only romanceable character with an alignment limitation.

    Siege of Dragonspear also has Glint, who will only romance men, Safana, who will only romance men (despite being quite flirtatious with women in her original BG1 dialogue), Corwin, who will romance characters of either gender (I don't know if she's ever been tested against non-standard genders), and Voghiln, who I think only romances women.

    Rasaad cares about the protagonist's alignment in BGEE. He doesn't in BG2EE. My post was only referring to the BG2EE romances.

    Oh interesting! I didn't know he became more relaxed in his standards in BG2.

    And yeah, in retrospect I can see how this post is very specifically about BG2, and I kind of got off track there with the SoD stuff.

    The Rasaad thing is new to me though.
