    [​IMG] In the slums, this guy appears, yells out that his name is Habib Khalid Achmed Allafif, and that he won't be captured. He then throws a scimitar at me! Any idea what this guy is about? Is it just one of those weird things in the game, or what?

    I think he's also the guy who throws money at you when you enter the church in waukeen's promenade. You learn a bit of his story from the priest who is there.

    [​IMG] My party killed him, accidentally I want to point out ... they have a pretty heavy punch and Habib wasn´t made to survive *multiple* critical hits. Nothing was left of him <shakehead>

    No rep-loss however

    that's the coolest guy there is in BG2.
    Man did I have fun when he threw that money at me in the church.
    And ofcourse when he throws his scimitar and then says " o, that usually works"...
    Real cool...!

    When I met the fellow in the church, I had just asked the priest to raise a friend of mine. It may have been Keldorn, but I'm not sure. No sooner did he raise him then Habib came rushing in, chunked his money, and promptly killed him. I did not realize this was unintentional; I attempted to give chase but quickly lost him. When I asked the priest about it, the priest said "Oh please forgive him, he does that from time to time." I jumped to conclusions; this was a temple dedicated to a strange god; I thot the priest was in cahoots with this man to take my gold from me by making me pay for yet another Raise Dead. My Berserker heritage manifested itself, and I slew the priests. It was not until considerably later that I found out it was only a misfortunate accident... so easily are lives spent in this great city. I spent many hours in solitary penance, but never has the weight of that deed been lifted from my soul.

    [​IMG] The official BG2 website held a competition ages ago and, if I remember correctly, the 'Habib' guy was the winner, so his character (Habib) got put into the game!

    Makes you wish you'd entered, doesn't it... ;)
