    I like Keldorn a lot, his sword is very cool and I share his disdain for the drow slut.

    There's no reason for this poll to have options other than Keldorn.

    You know it's a real testament to Cernds blandness that you forgot to add him to the list.

    The poll question is at odds with the thread title, and therefore I refuse to vote.

    Best bro is Keldorn.

    Best male companion is Edwin.

    Keldorn of course. He has a great sidequest where he learns to trust no thot.

    Jan Jansen always had my turnip... err my back. After he takes care of the Griffin with curdled milk we plan to take over Athkatla with our glorious army of monkeys. Proper monkeys, with hats and canes!

    Very difficult choice between Edwin & Jan. Edwin was my favorite for years for his blunt burns and being a badass mage, but I really came to enjoy Jan's over-the-top trolling of people. He plays the fool to lambast people with a subtle wit. Very difficult call. Jan fits better in more parties and has overall better utility, given the scarce amount of rogues in BG2. I will reluctantly vote for Jan.

    PS: You need to get Sarevok on this list. Excellent fucking NPC. Very honorable mention, whether your redeem him or embrace your evil.
