Hello,

Tried to make the title clear. I went into the Hollow Marshes, reached the Shrine of Amadia and went back into Fort Joy with my source collars off.
I knew the guards would be hostile BUT Ifan was too.

Even when all guards were dead he was still attacking, until we killed him.

Was this a glitch? Or Intentional?

I was able to reload to a save an hour previous, but it sucks I had to kill him.

My game is up to date so no issues there.

Unless you hit Ifan with area effect damage, etc, he shouldn't turn hostile to you, regardless of guards starting combat nearby (he shouldn't react to combat, either joining or or running away like a civilian NPC). I just tested it to double check (in case the collar being removed was the crime the guard reacted to, having Ifan join by systemics), accidentally killed him, resurrected him (developer build), escaped combat and returned, and he was neutral again. An NPC challenged me about a recent murder, called for guards and started combat, which Ifan ignored, and after it was over he suggested we team up when speaking to him.

Did you get any earlier warning for trespassing or vandalism, etc? It is possible earlier crime warnings could have caused Ifan to join combat when the guard spotted you. I tried moving / opening the offerings around the waypoint to trigger combat, and while Lohse did join, Ifan did not (likely due to being farther away).

I never attempted to recreate it, and to my knowledge I was never caught stealing. I am very sure it was triggered by the gate gaurds seeing my in Fort Joy after I "escaped".
Hopefully just a one time glitch if it was unable to be recreated as you said.
Thank you for the response.

I've had this same "bug" in multiple different runs:
After getting my collar moved by either Nebora or Leya, and then having guards attack me for not having my collar on, Ifan would join the side of the guards trying to kill me. Even if i had a positive reputation with him before from helping the elf girl.

There is no doubt about it, Ifan turns hostile.. I was sneaking about trying to position my party. I had had Ifan in my party long enough for him to talk to Magister Boris then dismissed him. He went to stand right across from the main entrance. Later my party escaped without him then returned, as soon as one of my party was spotted, he turned hostile and we had to kill him to end the battle. I reloaded a previous save several times and always the same reaction.

This is a real shame as I was hoping to keep switching party members as I progress to go through all the companion's stories in one playthrough. I guess now I will miss Ifan's tale. I'm not willing to go back to before the party first escaped. I suppose I could also just not fight the four by the gate. One had something decent (I wont spoil it) but it was not all that great.
