Wait and that's Zandalor too!
I hope that he's more like his Divine Divinity self and not Divinity II. I liked him in Divinity 2 but he was a far more deeper and badass character in Divine Divinity. For one, he showed more emotion and felt more like a friend rather than a mentor. The fact that he felt more like a friend really agrees with what he says in Divinity 2 about The Divine One.
I liked the fact that he saves you at the beginning, then you save him and then he saves you later on once again. I even remember that you could get into a bit of an argument with him in the Council. In Divinity 2, he was completely different, not that a character should remain the same as time progresses and there's plenty that has happened since Divine Divinity for him to have changed but what with Original Sin being before Divine Divinity, he should be more like how he was during that time.
So less epic and extraordinary speeches and more emotion and wisdom.
Here's an example of what I would like to see from Zandalor in Original Sin:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_70IiZ4N-yQ
When he was shouting at Damien in The Battle Tower, he did sound similar to his old self but he didn't display as much anger. You'd think he'd by mighty mad at Damien for all that he has done, his old self would have been.
