Name:
Khadion Linvail

Race:
Human

Class:
Thief, Swashbuckler

Alignment:
Chaotic Neutral

Stats:
Strength: 12
Dexterity: 18
Constitution: 13
Intelligence: 15
Wisdom: 7
Charisma 17
Total stats: 82

Introduction:
Khadion Linvail – the boy and the myth. He is the son of the Shadowmaster himself, Aran Linvail, a daring swashbuckler and a full-fledged Shadow Thief. Dual-wielding scimitars, his handsome face and red hair are in the dreams of all maidens in Athkatla.

Khadion is an extremely erratic and charismatic young man, constantly flirting and joking. He is boosted with self confidence, a true ladies' man. Khadion knows that he's good enough to succeed without his father’s help, and feels angry and ashamed to always be thought of as his father’s son. The continual need to succeed on his own merits has left him with burning ambition but a strong need for reassurance.

Khadion’s character will undergo considerable development, the outcome of which is influenced by the events around him, and his relationship with the player.

The mod will include:
- Content for both Baldur’s Gate II – SoA and ToB.
- Romance for ToB.
- A large amount of, in turn, flirty, light-hearted, topical and profound PC-banters, adding depth to the character.
- One very large and influential personal quest. Additional smaller quests.
- Extensive banters with all of Bioware’s NPCs. The banters may also differ depending on how his character progresses.
- Numerous interjections and comments throughout both SoA and ToB.
- A broad set of voicing for Khadion and other characters in the mod.
- Deeper characterisation to Aran Linvail, perhaps the most layered character of Baldur’s Gate II.
- Original poetry.
- New personal items.
- A beautifully crafted portrait made by khayman and the Sol-Ek-Sa.
- Support and extra content for mods also directly affecting the Shadow Thieves, such as SimDing0’s Quest Pack.
- Khadion is enlisted for the Crossmod Banter Pack.

Hmmm.. Not only the letter 'K' enjoys an overwhelming popularity, but seems that so is red hair. :P But, hey, I'm not complaining (or really allowed to make any comments on that matter). :glare:

So... When we get to see that portrait? :D
Ihmeellinen meri

Kummalliset kalat liukuvat syvyydessä,
tuntemattomat kukat loistavat rannalla;
olen nähnyt punaista ja keltaista ja kaikki toiset värit -
mutta ihana meri on vaarallista nähdä,
se herättää tulevien seikkailujen janon:
mitä on tapahtunut sadussa, on tapahtuva minullekin.

Well... Both the name and the looks has been in my head for two years, and at that point there wasn't many redheads and K's around. ;)

So... When we get to see that  portrait? :D

As soon as it's finished. ;)

And very much debated, yes. But the most probable outcome is that we will drop it, yes.

Yes, I like it better without the Bravo. A Swashy just seems to "fit" better.

And I WANT TO SEE THE PORTRAIT, too!!!! :whistling:

I am so tired of everyone nagging about the pic.

I used to be on the team untill I was FIRED.

So using my mad archiving skills, I present the Khadion portrait. Be warned, his maniliness might be too much for the faint of heart.

SConrad even found a way to have an animated pic for him. That is why this has been so SEKRIT!
