Introduction Edit

Companions are playable and recruitable characters throughout the game. Some will join you quite easily with only the exchange of a few words, while others may require you to fulfill your promise of helping them pursue their goals before they come to the decision of longtime commitment. All companions have alignments, unique personalities, and perspectives, which make them either support or despise your decisions. These include: party reputations, or even other members' opinions, forcing the player to choose sides. The main character can also develop romance relationships with certain companions.

You may have up to six characters in your party, main character included. In Enhanced Editions, you may also choose to play with a fully customized party like in the Icewind Dale series, with the first character you created being your main character. Companions come with various classes and ability scores. It’s up to player's imaginations to innovate their own ideal parties. 

In classic versions of the games, companions who are under-leveled at the time of joining will have their levels automatically adjusted based on the average party level. In Enhanced Editions, however, they’re given a certain amount of experience points (XP) for you to manually level, which grants the player more control of their status. The highest XP they can have at the time of joining is 32,000

. Each time the party gains XP, the game will try to divide them evenly among characters; undividable points are then distributed according to positions of the character portraits from “top” to “bottom.” The main character has the tendency to gain more XP than other party members. There’re also cases in which each character gains an equal amount of XP individually. None of the companions' statuses from Baldur's Gate carries over into Baldur's Gate II.

InteractionsEdit

Note: It is not advised to use companions as "pack mules" for storing items without keeping them in the party – especially in the second installment they might vanish from the scene or become otherwise unavailable.

Baldur's GateEdit

Pairs can be separated by getting one of them killed or petrified or by removing the unwanted person from the party in an area that's not planned to be revisited, then immediately leaving before dialog can be initiated.

A way to prevent unwanted behavior from initially rejecting a companion is to not reject them, but removing them from the party again in the same step; this, however, works only with a full party.
