One of the Baldur’s Gate 3 community members has shared an intimate aspect of one of the game’s prickliest associates, Minthara the drow paladin.
Minthara holds a status of notoriety amongst game characters. She is controversial not just because players have to commit the harsh act of wiping out a refugee camp to get her on their side, but also for her not glamouring openness like some of the other members in the party.
A dedicated servant of the Absolute, Minthara's moral compass is complex, akin to walking on a tightrope. She can be notoriously debatable even when compared to Astation and Shadowheart, but lacks the soft edges that make the latter two some of the most loved characters in the game.
However, players have uncovered a side to her that is surprisingly sensitive, painting her in a more redeemable light than what first impressions reflect.
Insights Into Minthara’s Hidden Sensitivity In Baldur’s Gate 3
In a discussion on the official Baldur’s Gate 3 platform, one of the players expressed excitement over Minthara’s character, stating that, the twists and turns in her behavior and character portrayal were another level of enjoying the game in an oddly warm way.
They stated, 'Her character transformation is intriguing and oddly heartwarming. The way my character (Tav) and hers interact- discussing her feelings about carrying the weight of expectations- it really resonated with me.'
While acknowledging the fact that Minthara is far from being a ‘good’ character, this gamer doesn’t believe that her dark side adversely impacts their own character’s disposition. They further admitted that, despite harboring initial reservations about Minthara, she’s gradually turning into their number one choice.
Positive Reactions About Minthara From Other Gamers
Similar sentiments were echoed by other players who have been won over by Minthara’s surprising depth. One particular commenter stated, “She’s honestly maybe a top 5 character in the game for me. It’s disappointing to sometimes witness her being a tad aloof or encountering glitches in her dialogue, but for the majority of the time she’s a goddamn delight to have around.”
