Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, watch it! I'm huge.
When the going gets tough, someone hold my rodent!
|Name:||Minsc (and Boo)|
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Companion: Boo, a Miniature Giant Space Hamster
Boo will take care of the details.
Minsc is someone driven by justice and righteousness. Upon failing to protect Dynaheir on his dajemma, the Rasheman Ranger has since turned into a sellsword who fights on the side of justice. Following laws and helping those in dire need are his calling now, and he is not truly happy unless he has Boo at his side and is planting his boot or sword into the buttocks of goodness.
Minsc often displays a very simplistic outlook on life and the world around him. Things are rarely grey to him. They are either good or bad, with little middle ground to mingle with. He readily admits he has taken several blows to the head, after one of which he bought Boo, whom he swears is a very special hamster. Minsc relies on Boo for a great deal of advice and encouragement, and is not stingy on sharing the hamster's wealth of advice with others who he feels could benefit from his hamster's wisdom.
Minsc is prone to bouts of brutality if someone he cares for is injured to a point of helplessness, and being a berserker, Minsc will fly into a rage and move to defend them. This can be a great boon as for a short time his strength and speed are increased and he cannot feel pain. However, due to the nature of the Berserker Blood-lust, Minsc cannot control himself, and friends would be well to get away from him, where they remain safe and unharmed as a byproduct of his attacks.
Minsc is a bald, purple-tattooed ranger from the country of Rasheman, a country set within the Forgotten Realms world of Faerûn. Originally, he was a berserker on his dajemma, a rite of passage in Rasheman, to gain entrance to the prestigious "Ice Dragon Berserker Lodge". His dajemma was to include protecting the witch, Dynaheir on her journeys through the Sword Coast, but he met with many mishaps along the way, and eventually, in a tragedy, the woman was killed by a Mage known as Irenicus. Following her demise, Minsc becomes a mercenary and self-proclaimed "defender of good" and followed a hero known to be one of the Sword Coast's greatest heroes across the Realms. His travels have taken him from Baldur's Gate to Athkatla, and all the way into the subterranean world of the Drow, the Underdark.
In the first Baldur's Gate game, Dynaheir and Minsc were ambushed by gnolls near the Wood of Sharp Teeth. Dynaheir was captured and taken to the Gnoll Stronghold west of the town of Nashkel and Minsc and Boo travel back to Nashkel, where the main characters can meet him as he seeks assistance. The player will encounter him as a bulging ranger wielding a two-handed sword who is talking to, and even taking advice from, his pet hamster whose cuddly noises make sense to Minsc. He asks for the main character to help him free Dynaheir before she gets eaten, and will hold the main character to his word, with violence if necessary, and if the player does not rescue her within ten days after Minsc joins the party then he will turn on the group and attack. If Dynaheir is rescued, she and Minsc will become inseparable, and if any of the two are later dropped from the party, then the other will also leave.
In Baldur's Gate II, Minsc and Boo are found alongside the main character as the game starts. Together with Imoen and Jaheira, they have been captured each in a separate prison cell, and he is in a brutal rage as Dynaheir has been murdered by their captor Irenicus. Minsc travels with the main character, if allowed, and develops long-standing bonds with other PCs Jaheira, Imoen and Nalia. He gladly follows them into Hell itself to protect and defend the Sword Coast.
