How to find: You meet Yoshimo on Level 2 in Irenicus' Dungeon when you arrive here from Level 1. He automatically offers to join you.
If dropped: Goes to the Copper Coronet. Please note that Yoshimo won't be available when you return to Athkatla in Chapter 6.
NPC Quest: Not really; however please see the bottom of this page if you don't mind a spoiler.
Relations with other NPCs: Haer'Dalis is very suspicious of Yoshimo and his motives and makes this very clear, after which Yoshimo keeps his distance to the Bard.
Apart from this, Yoshimo gets along fine with all NPCs.
Behavior that causes him to leave the party: None.
Background information: Yoshimo is surprised and not a little bit hurt that you haven't heard about him before. He is not from Athkatla and is barely tolerated by the local Shadow Thieves for working "freelance".
Yoshimo betrays you to Irenicus when you reach Spellhold in Chapter 4. When you return from the Spellhold Dungeon, he attacks you along with a number of Assassins, and you have to kill him. You can pick up his heart and bring it to a Temple of Ilmatar when you get back to Athkatla for 200,000 XP. If you plan to use keep Imoen after Spellhold, it is therefore recommended to bring Yoshimo to Spellhold so you will gain this experience and so you won't have to drop another companion.
