Korgan might show up, dwarves live for 350 years, and I don't think he was that old in BG2, maybe 196? I'm not sure about Viconia, though. Whether you romance her or not, her future does not guarantee her survival into the 5th Edition time frame, being a target of the Spider Queen and all. I like to think Edwin may have found a way to become a lich.


Didn't Edwin turn into a female after he foolishly challenged Elminster? anyway, i'm pretty sure we wont see these characters or any other Bg 1&2 characters for that matter. Maybe Minsc, since he became very iconic. I just hope that the new companions will be as memorable as the BG ones, or at least close.

Even though Elminster turned Edwin into a woman it is never said what happened to his powers wizards can live for a really long time also with the hole spellplague thing even if Elminster made it where Edwin can't cast spells anymore the spellplague changes things so it' not impossible for Edwin to make a comeback alive or dead male or female

I'm confident that Coran, the womanizing elf will be in the game, since he along with Minsc have been confirmed to still be around. A recent D&D comic book revealed that Coran has become one of the noblemen of Baldur's Gate, a member of the Parliament of Peers, an advisory council that holds governance over the city of Baldur's Gate.

Aha! So you have read the comics! Very few people know Coran has a son now. If Krydle joins the party, then definitely Minsc will too, because apparently they know each other.

That's a good place to look up information on anything relating to the Forgotten Realms.

Answers from the AMA in reddit. Sven Vincke said:

"Let me just say that we touch upon the story of BG 1 & 2 in meaningful ways, there are returning characters and what happened in BG 1/2/tob leads to what happens into BG3. You won’t necessarily see that at the start of the adventure but you will quickly understand once you get further into the game."

So I understand we would see some cameos in the game =P

About comebacks, Minsc (in Murder in baldur´s gate he was petrified but alive), but I also hope to find a descendant of the Jansens and I hope for an Imoen appearance =D

Misc does not only appear in the comics, but also he is referenced in the official WOTC module DiA, so I think the fact that the bearer of the boot of justice is alive and kicking; it´s canon. I hope he appears in BG3 too.

Aerie and Viconia are elf and drow. They should both still be alive after 100 years. Unless they killed each other of course XD

If you ask what to bring, bring Lilarcor. Well it is not directly a character, but it can tell storys from its past journeys ;).

Lolth the Spider Queen killed Viconia after throne of Bhaal. Remember that Viconia was being hunted for her defiance and blatant disrespect to Lolth in Menzoberranzan. She doesn't forget traitors.

No...? If she was, I'd know for sure, I keep up with everything Forgotten Realms related in D&D.
