[Not an Issue] Inconsistency in Rasaad's story

I just met Rasaad in BG2. He says Alorgoth was the man who killed his brother Gamaz. This was shown to be untrue during his quest in BG1, as we actually ended up killing Gamaz.

    Well, funny.. that's also the first thing i noticed when i saw a quick video on YT about Rasaad location in BG2.. i had the same immediate thought (having used heavily rasaad in BG1, done all his quests lines..and even kept him up to his lv8..even if i did not use him for the very final fight^^).

    .. i was like that too: 'whaaat?!'...
    Just after that, though, i began to try to rationalize that and tried to tell to myself ('that's so big.. no, no, not possible..they do care for the stories, hu!' )) )... and finished to imagine that, somehow, Rasaad put the blame on Alorgoth alone... in the way, 'without him, i will never have had to kill my bro'..the blame and fault would be on Alorgoth so! In a way, well..that's not totally false too...without Alorgoth, all that would have never happen.. but well, yes, felt weird the first time i heard that too.. *) ;))

    I'm pretty sure that's just Rasaad rationalizing. NPCs are not omniscient narrators.

    I suppose he could be in extreme denial, especially since when the inevitable Gamaz fight happens, during my playthroughs, I let Rasaad take him on one on one, while the rest of the party takes out his minions, so technically he killed his brother.

    In Rasaad's eyes, while the party may have struck the final blow, it was Alorgoth who killed Gamaz.

    By turning him to the Dark (Moon) Side in the first place.

    indeed..yes, makes sense that way so.. and a kind of denial too *) (nb; 'NPCs are not omniscient narrators'..yes, very true..but real writers behind are)) ..but/and we know very well the literary trick in a A Song of Ice and Fire / George RR Martin serie, for ex..totally (sur)exploited classic concept there.. k ;) */ )
