Had a friend watching me play a bit and Shadowheart came on and said friend asked me "Is this the Kodachi of this game?"
I have a thing for characters that at least start out nominally on the "evil" side and getting a redemption arc. So...well, my friend pegged me right away.
I also have a thing for such characters. You're lucky because I think there is 99,9% chance that Shadowheart will get a redemption arc. And I'm just hoping that I can turn Astarion into a good boy (can I be so naive at least in a game haha)
