Talk to this Lawful Good Human Invoker. If Minsc is in the group he will be pleased. You can recruit her or dismiss her. If you dismiss her or Minsc the other will leave too. If Edwin is in the group you will probably want to kill her. Once you have done so you can insist Edwin delivers on his promised payment but if you do he will leave. There is a good chance that Dynaheir will battle Edwin if they are both in the party.
RECRUITED: 800 exp
