** Technically Bhaal's domain, as handed down by Jergal, was ''dying''. He just chose to present himself as murder because he liked the sound of it better.

* Apparently one of the romance epilogues in the Enhanced Edition has you DIE. Not just DIE, but get stuffed into the fridge solely to spite your love interest. Excuse me, but what the fuck? If you personally defeated monsters like Demogorgon, I find it sincerely hard to comprehend how a thing like this is even physically possible.

** Chalk it up to two Bhaalspawn growing up together linking them close enough that "Bhaal's power clings to itself" makes Imoen's soul anchor to Charname.

*** Along that same line, maybe s/he would be something like {{Discworld}}'s [[AC:Death]], a benevolent, DontFearTheReaper type who 'takes over where life left off.' Somebody like that would be a close ally of deities such as Ilmater (because s/he would give final relief for the suffering) and Kelemvor (s/he sees souls safely off to the afterlife).

* In BGII, when you first encounter Imoen in Spellhold, she's a psychotic wreck and an EmptyShell. After you lose your soul, she suddenly regains her sanity and can jump right back into your party. Headcanon is that my group happened to have a Heal spell on hand, but does game itself give any explanation for this?

**** Almost certainly didn't know. This is really old canon, it just hasn't been superseded (certainly not when Baldur's Gate was made).

*I personally take it as a form of self-reinforcement, their mantra of reminding themselves "this is how Drow act, if we do anything else, even the other drow will suspect us", "we are drow, everyone hates us, we can't forget that and go soft, otherwise they might stick us in the back when we're nice", and things like that.

*** No it does not. Putting aside the outrage of its citizenry doing so [[TooDumbToLive would be a very bad idea.]] Although Cowled Wizards do show up if you have a very low reputation so they could have gotten involved with him anyway.
