I've started my second run, because one of the mods I'm playing with became outdated and the author changed it completely, so the save can't be loaded anymore. Anyway I left Fort Joy, just reached the swamps and the cat thanked me for rescuing him and stuff and stuff and stuff, when he eventually got to the point, he quoted his master, the wizard, who left him behind. I don't see it mentioned anywhere, but perhaps I'm not looking in the right places, anyway the guy rhymes a lot, it seems, so is this cat actually Bellegar's? Because there's hardly more famous rhyming wizard in Rivellon. Did Bellegar appear in earlier games? I know, that he does in Divinity II: Developer's Cut/Dragon Knight Saga, but that's a later (newer) installment, so the cat wouldn't work much as an easter egg, or anything (well perhaps Bellegar is in fact the easter egg to his cat? Like we'll finally meet the cat's master in person in Divinity II, I guess?).

Bellegar also appears in Original Sin (I mean original Original Sin, i.e. D:OS rather than D:OS2, which they should've called Unoriginal Sin) but I don't recall him putting in an appearance elsewhere. My first memory, admittedly starting with ED, is just of some rhyming nutter appearing out of nowhere for no apparent reason. Which seems to be as good a reason as any.

Well I haven't played D:OS, so I know him only from D2: DevCut/DKS for the hell he gave me there, be it his challenges, or later his attempts at stopping me. But I really like his cat here, if it is his cat, that is.

I personaly don't see Bellegar having a pet cat. Maybe this wizard was actually Maxos? It's could be even Rraccus Rex himself who became bored with the cat,

Well yes, it could be anyone of those, but neither of these guys rhymed, there's a lot of evidence about them and non quotes them in rhyming pattern, the only ever rhyming mage/wizard was/is Bellegar still. And why wouldn't he have a cat familiar? Even Zandalor had one (well Arhu wasn't really his familiar and not even a real cat, but still you could say that they both acted at least that way). Bellegar's good heart fits into the story of the cat, leaving it in the library to protect it. There were only Magisters there and they were thought to be good overall, you know the Divine Order and stuff. All that with Dallis and her experiments was kept secret.

Wizards and cats is just a thing; and Bellegar is notorious as Rivellon's rhyming mage, so I doubt it could be anybody else!
