There's even a conversation you can have with Wyll if you ask him why he's not afraid of you, a drow, to which he says 'i bet there's a smile under that scowl'.. and it would maybe make sense if my character wasn't constantly smiling when talking to him, or any other companion for that matter.

But more to the point, i don't quite understand why 'the person who you dream of' is considered such a unique trait of our Custom char. If you talk to Shadowheart you learn that she.. basically has the same dream as you..so?
Unless of course 'dream person' is a legit NPC we get to interact with outside of dreamworld... and only exists if we play as Custom char.

Obviously it's only act 1 of EA ..but still..

yeah sadly not much you can do with the cutscenes to reflect every persons character.

Faced with turning into a mindflayer Wyl smiles, and laughs.

Has personal issues, secrets, dark and dreary Wyl smiles.

sees a horde of goblins rushing to slaughter everyone will smiles and calls out 'I'm the Blade of the Frontier!'

Talks about trip through hell smiles, and talks of enjoying it

him believing there is a smile under a drow's scowl. One that seems legit for him. 2. there is a smile under the drows scowl and he'll see it when she grows tired of him talking. Would he smile when she rips out his tongue. probably because thats his defense mechanism light heartedness, playfulness, seeing the sunshine and rainbows. So for Wyl to say it no matter the truth behind it is perfectly natural to his character.
