i've played with all basic characters all the 33 scenarios (in solo play), but now i'm going to reboot the game with a friend, and i want to choose a new character from the character add-on (amiri, lini, seelah and sajan).

my friend has chosen kyra.

what team mate would you recommend me, from this four characters?

Lini.

For me the best of them all in your choices.

I second Lini, I am having a lot of fun playing her in our current game. Her reveal an animal for +1d4 to any check power is great!

Sajan. You can never go wrong with Sajan. He's loaded with blessings. Play them with abandon and have Kyra heal them back for him.

Don't do Lini. You already have one divine caster; you probably don't need another.

Sajan is good. Most of the other characters in the set are actually decent with Kyra, since she can heal a whole lot. Pick one that makes up for her deficiencies (IIRC, Dexterity and maybe Charisma?).

Lem is the greatest ever, though. He is like table salt - he goes well with just about everything, which is why it's on the table all the time.

Personally I would avoid Lini[1] or Seelah in this case, because as Calthaer said, you already have a divine spellcaster. Especially since you have played a lot, and assuming this other person hasn't, it would be nice for them to feel special. Plus it's not ideal to be competing for the same boons.

I would guess that Sajan would make for a stronger duo, but it seems like Amiri would be a fine choice too.

[1] One of my 2.5 campaigns was as Lini, and I agree she is an amazing powerhouse in a tiny package.

thanks all you for your replies.

finally, i will chose sajan. his dexterity complements the low dexterity of kyra.

i suppose i will play with lini as solo gamer, she looks amazing.

My first runthrough of this game was with Kyra and Valeros. I enjoyed it a lot. Sure I chose it because that's how I usually approach new RPG-games thinking that the Fighter is the "basic" easy to play for a first time hero, and we always need a healer.
What I ended up with was a love for this game that have made me buy everything so far.

But really, I would recommend to choose a character that seems like fun for you to play. You should manage to beat the game with any two heroes. And Kyra is a bad ass healer so she's going to have your back anyway

Good luck!

I had great success using Kyra & Lini as a party.
