Shawne: I wouldn't be, but say LG was my first playthrough, and my next was evil and I were hunting for a tank. Without google fu, it's reasonable to assume a player might miss him on the first five or six trips through the city.
This is all pointless hypothetical discussion. My original point still stands: He isn't exactly thrown in your face as an obvious Evil tank. He's tucked away out of sight in a building you might never check. I'd agree he'd be the obvious Evil Tank if he was, say, in Feldepost's Inn.
Kaigan, despite being in an early area, is actually quite difficult to find if you don't know he's there, and you're not into the habit of going into buildings for no reason. Other than a map marker that reads "Kagain's Shop," he's pretty much invisible as his shop doesn't even have a visible door for you to enter.
