    In your shoes Id pick:

    Kivan and Coran for ranged damage,thieving skills ,hiding (useful at lower levels) and ability to drink fighter-only potions. They can also wear heavy armor and tank when necessary.

    Kagain as a tank and he'll become a greater damage dealer as the game progresses.

    Imoen because she's your sis (and can be dualed to mage) . After dualong to mage you can have coran deal with traps and locks ,while Imoen (along with your bard) uses wands and spells.

    Either Branwen or Viconia for healing and hold person spells.

    Sorry,you meant *personality-wise* ,right?
    Then I'll put some emphasis on Coran, Branwen, Neera , Xan and Imoen!

    I’d also recommend:

    Dorn - has a quest with a reward item that’s very useful to bards. Also has interesting backstory. His voice is brilliant too.

    Shar-Teel: complex personality and can dual to thief at any time

    Safana - now that SOD is out, she’s become my favoured thief over Imoen. She’s a joinable character in SOD so you can tailor her skills if you get her early and can use them throughout both games.

    Xzar/Montaron: an interesting alternative to the Harpers and confer similar dialogue options in Nashkel and Baldur’s Gate. Xzar’s character is funny while Montaron is plain old school evil.

    Minsc/Dynaheir: like Neera and Safana are joinable in SOD so Minsc’s weapon profs can be tailored how you like if you get him early and Dynaheir should retain her spellbook in SOD. Similarly for Edwin.

    Thanks for the answers. Maybe this team should be fine: Dorn, neera, imoen, branwen and either Kivan or Shar teel. Im toward to Kivan to be balanced between good and evil members but SharTeel is way stronger character.
    Or may i use Kagain ? I only used him once in my evil playtrough.

    Shar teel is cool,but you gotta watch for your reputation.

    If you use mods I highly recommend BGNPC Project to greatly increase interactions and depth of character,along with romance options and a few small quests. Coran Friendship is another great mod, Xan Friendship, as well as Chatty Imoen. All would add more of the personality your looking for in all the original NPCs.

    Personality-wise Tiax is a funny guy and he’s evil. For the rest you can just go with Minsc, Dynaheir, Khalid and Jaheira. They all have interesting personalities, and you get to further develop them in SOD.
