Not a big loss IMO ;D

I thought so to, but Calli has a thing for good aligned NPCs. Especially those of the bleeding heart mentality.

  First of all i wanted to say that i really appreciate the work and find the idea of a non romance-able evil female-war refreshing. Two reasons for that. An NPC can exist for itself and join <CHARNAME> for reasons other than to be his "plaything" (in lack of a better word), so i find the idea of a she-war that has the integrity not to fall in love with every <CHARNAME> there is appealing. Other than that, in my case, NPCs have already peaked in romance department. Some questions:
  Will it be possible to have some level of freedom in customizing "technical" side of the mod during the installation, stuff that has nothing to do with Callisto's personality or mod itself. By this i mean Callisto's animation, which could be that of a female human war and that of an elf both, to be selected upon install. I say this because the only two NPC's  that i know of that use human war animation are Chloe and Shar-Tael in TDD, none of which wear heavy armor. That animation is, in my opinion, more pleasing to the eye than so much repeated and fragile female elf. This can be done by editor by each gamer, but that leaves a slimy feeling.
  Other thing would be allowing the player to choose the weapon in which Callisto has grand mastery, also upon installation; in case, say, she wields katanas but the player wants CF for himself, which leaves her with byproducts. This would bring a wider audience to the mod, but would, of course, be out of question should she use customized weapons.

A nice long post. Good.  :)

Weapons. She has her own custom made weapon and some other items. She wouldn't be to fond of parting with it. Something like Chloe with her weapons. She will get bent out of shape if someone was to take her sword, but she is still open to use another weapon. Just make sure her weapon is on her.

Avatars. Elven avatars for BG2, frankly suck. I don't like how they look with the thief class, no hoods or the fighter class, a little wimpy looking. It's something that can be easily altered, like you said, with a character editor or NI. She will most likely use the human avatar doll.

By the way, is it possible to create a special avatar only she could use? Humans girls are too tall, like myself.  :-\ Once I had a mod that changed all the avatars, but is it possible to create one that wouldn't replace another?

In theory it is possible, but you have to consider that everything else must also be according to her avatar. How a leather armor would look on her, how a medium shield would be worn, even how she would walk or swing weapons.

A long time ago, I asked if it was possible to add a tail to Fade's avatar. Mistress E answered something along the lines that she could try to import it from PS:T, but most likely would make Fade look like Annah. ;D

 Human doll will be great, just hope she'll wear plate mail. Cant see much of that animation in game, or the human cleric in plate animation, unless one plays them. It will add aesthetic appeal to the group.
 EDIT:forgot to mention. Regarding customized weapons, hope Callisto's wont be all level drain /disintegrate/nuclear strike on hit , like those of Valen, although Chloe is not too far behind either  :batterup Those things consumed huge chunks of balance, so i used game weapons. Minor enchantments would do just fine, along with bonus of what it can/to hit on certain levels....Im not saying id like her to stab things with toothpicks, but its hard to resist the urge of making/having a planet shattering weapon  :((at least for me). Normal stuff will do great

Since I have a nice long weekend thanks to the holiday and my birthday, I have will be working on this and hopefully bring it to conclusion once and for all. I started work again this morning.

Her custom sword is fire based. It gives a minor bonus of fire damage. I think the sword or something else of hers gives her the ability to cast fireball once a day also. She has a thing for fire after all.
