Seb, do you have in mind a possible alignment shift ?

Extensive banters with all of Bioware?s NPCs. The banters may also differ depending on how his character progresses.


The outlined sentence could suggest such a thing...

Yes, an alignment change is very possible.

A shift towards chaotic good, in this case, could be a good idea. As you describe him, I can't see him turning towards evil, but, on the other hand, it seems possible to be swayed towards good by a good player. His current alignment, chaotic neutral, I would rather put on the Shadow Thieves influence on him.

Well, originally, he was Chaotic Good, but we changed that pretty recently.

I can see arguments for his retaining that CG alignment when you meet him. Perhaps there could then be room to move the other way (to CN or CE). (I like GOOD boys!) :^^:

Well, originally, Khadion was CG, but when we started writing him, we felt that the alignment didn't really match his personality. So, we changed it. ;)

The CN alignment was heavily influenced by the personality that began to emerge as we started writing his banters and dialogues. However, the fact that he is so impressionable is a big part of his appeal. What you say and do around Khadion can and WILL affect him... very deeply.

The funny thing was that this decision to make him CN was somewhat coincidental. The writers all seemed to get the same impression of Khadion's personality, and the banters they produced all reflected this idea. In the end though, it worked out for the best, because there is so much more room for Khadion's development this way.

I agree with that, because I find quite strange for Khadion to be chaotic good for the start. After all, Shadow Thieves maybe are better than the vampires, but they still are a criminal organisation. Khadion could have been involved in missions for them and I doubt such missions could consist in picking flowers for the daughters of his father's associates.
