Biography: When asked about his past PFAUG grumps a little, saying that he doesn't want to talk about it, but after a couple of mugs of ale he ends up talking anyway.
He was born into a merchant family of the clan Hammerlust in Dunspeirrin. His father, a weak despicable bastard, whose name he never mentions, was killed for racking up more debt than he could pay for. Pfaug had to flee the city, being only a little more than a child back then. From town to town he lived by theft and scams. One day he tried to pickpocket a priest of Abbathor who beat him badly and took him back to his own home.
What was supposed to be the end of his life was actually a new beginning. For unknown reasons, the priest decided to raise him as his own son among his family and clan. Even on his drunkest nights, Pfaug never revealed the name of the clan that embraced him, as he knew it would be shameful for them. As he grew older, he started to notice all the problems he was causing to his adopted family and clan. He departed one night without telling anyone where he was heading, Thay, the city where he had always heard that one could make 'easy gold'.
Thay turned Pfaug into a different person. Working as a leg-breaker, and occasionally being thrown into the arena, he lost all sense of empathy and compassion. As soon as he had gathered enough gold, he paid for his freedom as he left Thay for good, looking for another promising opportunity, the Crusade.

This mod is not complete yet
, all banter and interjections are yet to be done, but Pfaug will join and leave the party normally and will comment about (a lot of) events.
* Pfaug's starting XP will be adjusted accordingly to Charname's XP (following the pattern of SoD's NPCs).
So, I've been working on a new NPC for SoD: Pfaug.
Yup, the same fellow we see when leaving Baldur's Gate - now he is a joinable NPC.
I don't have a proper release yet, but I would say that things are 80% done for a first version. I'm making this post as a precaution because I'll probably not be on this forum much longer.
That being said, for download, information and support, please contact me on Twitter (/raduziel) and I'll gladly provide them.
I'll try to add more info to this thread when and if possible.
1) What about Pfaug's race?
He's a duergar. He has almost every duergar trait except the immunity to illusions and (to offset that) the XP penalty - this includes being able to cast Invisibility and Enlarge. Be aware that he will take some penalties when exposed to sunlight.
3) Is Pfaug romanceable?
4) Tips on party composition?
He has a closer relation to Viconia and some weird interaction with Dorn and M'Khiin (as he hates and fears them). With his low Charisma, he will tease and provoke pretty much everyone except for the above and Voghiln.
5) Any other recommendation?
Pfaug has a dirty mouth. He curses when he feels that he needs to. If you're oversensitive or feel uncomfortable with this kind of language, I wouldn't recommend this mod.
Also, Pfaug has different reactions for dwarves and non-dwarves PC/NPC. You may want to take him for a ride more than once to fully experience this mod.
6) Any banters and interjections?
Yup. A minimum of two with each NPC, some with the PC and a lot of head-strings to react to some in-game events.
7) Any personal quest?
A very quick fetch quest. As this is my first NPC mod and SoD is such a short game where the player pretty much can't travel around I had to limit myself here.
8) Will he be expanded to BG2 eventually?
9) Wow, max HP! Why?
The only other evil front-liner in SoD is Dorn and he is frail as a flower.
10) Release date?
TBA here or in Twitter - future will tell.
