Which NPCs can you keep for the longest time while playing through the trilogy?

I’m planning to play the Big World Project version of the Baldur’s Gate games. I’d like to have a standard party with one fighter, one thief, one priest, and one mage.

Which of the NPCs should I take if my goal is to keep them as long as possible? What should be the class of the main character?


The only rejoinable recurring characters between BG1 and 2 are:

  • Imoen: Thief (Thief/Mage in BG2)
  • Minsc: Ranger (and a decent fighter)
  • Viconia: Priest
  • Jaheira: Fighter/Druid
  • Edwin: Mage

So they would last you the longest. They’re also a lethal combination. The only thing is, I’m not sure but I think you may have trouble keeping this party together if you have low charisma and low or high reputation.


Choosing the player’s class:

  • You already have 3 decent fighters: Minsc, Jaheira, and Viconia (with a strength boost)
  • 2.5 healers: Viconia, Jaheira, and Minsc once again
  • And the most powerful mage in the game: Edwin
  • I don’t remember how good Imoen is but I’m sure she’s not terrible.

Point being you can choose any class for the PC. I usually go with one of the thief variants or a sorcerer in DnD games.
