I also think that she is too weak for the role she plays in terms of level but

game files suggest a coming drow companion. If that is going to be Minthara it is understandable that she is only level 5.
Most of the world currently seems stuck at Lvl 5, a few stronger creatures would be manageable

I doubt it will be Minthara, I think all Companions start at level 1. I do think she will reappear in later chapters and will end up a camp follower eventually, but not a full companion.
