forepart of the game finds you alone, however soon new companions will
join you and aid you in your quest. The new party members aren't limited
to humans only but can vary from druids to Mandalorians. Each character has
some distinct abilities (i.e. stealth for Atton, destruction of the force
fields for Bao-Dur, etc) and their correct coalition between the party
members, helps in the creation of a powerful team. You shouldn't try to
perfect character but to increase each character's strong points every
time you gain a level (It is also prudent to have at least a member with
high persuasion skills. This will save you from many troubles and money!).
Moreover, using your main character, you have to try to keep the balance
between your party members. There are disputes, compassions and dislikes
between your companions (a feature first appears in the Baldur's Gate series)
and you have to keep them from exceeding the limits. Finally, your personal
behavior towards each of your comrades will determine the gain or loss
of influence points. The more influence points you have, the easier the
actions from your comrades (which lead to the Light or the Dark side).
