I liked Xan in the first Baldur's Gate. "Our quest is doomed". Pessimistic party members are too few and far between in games, I think.
I also liked Mazzy in the second Baldur's Gate. Really wanted to help her become a paladin, and was actually a bit surprised/disappointed that she couldn't reach her goal within the game.
The more fleshed out characters in later games are hampered by not leaving enough room for the player's imagination, I think. Xan only had a few lines and didn't play a big part in the story, but I kept him in my party along with the ever optimistic Garrick, becaused I could imagine their banter. Made the party less than optimal in battle, but that's role-playing.
