ps. I prefer no redemption arc for Astarion. Some characters should just remain irredeemable.

Though I wholeheartedly agree with some characters should not have a redemption arc,

especially for players who want to keep an evil play through

I feel like it would be nice to have an option on whether to help redeem a character or keep them "corrupted"
