So the whole " purge the heresy" bs from kagha might be a way for her to justify closing the grove. " If they came here, more will come". Also the absolute wants to attack the grove and it has nothing to do with the refugees.

Her actions seem to be a bit unreasonable but with the absolute, bhaal being teased in various notes and the shadow druid thing ... I think there's more to it. I think khaga is not a silly psychopath. She has an objective and she's extremely bad and putting it into place.

Kagha is being manipulated by Olodan who is acting by the beliefs of a BG1 throwback character. Where Olodan comes from or how she managed to just walk into Halsin's circle with her cabal and puppet the interim leader, we don't know. I doubt it will be explained in Act 2 and beyond though. Her story is done.

If you pass the persuade rolls she tells you the letters just started appearing one day warning her of the immitent goblin threat and how the grove was bound to fall sooner or later, so she took the deal out of desperation to protect her own. To me it seemed like yet another branch of the Absolute wanting the druid circle out of the picture one way or the other. It's true however she just comes off as a psychotic maniac if you fail your persuades.
