I have this thought about playing as a gith race. Well, I'm glad I finally decided to do it, because I see that this race has the most unique dialogues, interactions, and I have the impression that by default you should play as gith. However, during the adventure, I see some big drawbacks. Why our Tav is lower than Lae Zel. Voss calls her "child" on the pass, and Tav "servant". Later, Lae is still positioned as more important.Tav is a gith, but everything indicates that he only has a supporting role to Lae, and yet he is the leader of the group. This is a big glitch. What do you think?

A general flaw of BG3.
In Larians storytelling, the main character is unimportant, only the companions/origin characters matter.

I love my gith mage and am planning another goth character. But I made her a Githzerai in my head that accidentally stranded in Faerun as a child after some portal accident. She poses as Githyanki to not antagonise Lae'zel ( and later tells her the truth). That is my explanation,why she knows so much about Faerun and is not as accepted among the goth she meets. They can see, something is different.

I imagine most of the Gith flavour text was designed with a Lae'zel origin playthrough in mind, although, there is some that is designed for the PC.
On the other hand, the game did offer a unique ending with a romanced Lae'zel... until they opened it up for everyone to get in the last patch.

Githzerai

Shame they didn't offer that as a race option, would've made certain classes and dialogue options feel abit less strange.
Also could've added some character drama with Lae'zel too.

I agree about the Githzerai. There is a mod for them, but I want to finish my honour mode before trying that.

That's my problem with playing a gith. Lae'zel tends to overshadow the narrative. Not that I don't love Lae'zel and her story. It's just that though... HER story.

I'd play her as an origin except I think it's weird to play a female as a guy. I can't get into that.

Immerse in your killer lolli fantasy!
Imagine that you are Youjo Senki, a man dumped into a girl's body.
