In BG 1 Dorn Il-Khan and Baeloth also decreased reputation score because of their races as half-orc and drow respectively.
I think players could go the Astarion route and embrace the infection. That way they look to Minthara for guidance with the Absolute, particularly if they want to role play a curious neutral evil or spiritually dejected character.
I had the thought of taking her prisoner before too. Her connection to the Absolute is interesting and would be a good source of intel.
