AFAIK, his only role in the BG-series is to give you hints, etc. He has no major role at all, he is simply included because he is a famous Faerūn character.
He will also pop up various places throughout the game, doing something besides giving hints.

I beleive in 3rd edition rules, Elminster goes as follows;
1 lv fighter, 2 or 3 lv's of theif (can't remember), somewhere around 29 lv mage, and 4 lv's of archmage.

The Lv's make more sense if you read the books about him, they're pretty good. Anyone out there that know's his stats better than i do???

Elminster was a good friend of Gorion.

I'd guess the put him in for the same reason the put Drizz't in - to give people familiar with the Forgotten Realms setting a sense of "ooooh! cool! I really *am* in the Forgotten Realms!" [img]smile.gif[/img]

In other words, just as a minor way of immersing your character in the story & the lore of the Realms.

Incidently, has anyone ever attacked Elminster? I think he force-talks you too quick to do it (those with ToB - at the end of Abizagal's Lair might be a good opportunity?) but I'm not positive.

if you did it right(ie timestop shapechange(cause it's the fastest way to kill 1 person) you might be able to kill him before he talks to you it'd be interesting to try

He is unkillable by my minds.I have tryed to kill him but nothing.I even tryed to CTRL+Y him but that didn`t work to...so i assume he is immortal.
