RPG Vault is featuring the second designer diary for the upcoming NWN 2 Adventure Pack, the Mysteries of Westgate. Designer Luke Scull covers companions and factions in MoW:
Mantides was once a champion of Lathander, a paladin in the service of Morningstar Haven whose deeds and combat prowess were renowned throughout Westgate. However, something happened to result in his dismissal from both the church and the favor of the Morninglord. Stripped of his paladin powers and tortured by whatever events led to his fall from grace, he now drowns his sorrows in the Black Eye tavern. He refuses to speak about the specifics, but it is known that he harbors a very deep hatred for the Night Masks. While he is a bit rusty due to lack of practice, he still knows how to use a sword.
The screen below is of the three companions in MoW.
