According to me, you should kill the Dying Mind Flayer in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3). He is a part of all the chaos happening around the world. Remember all those who were found dead on the Nautiloid Ship? He is the reason why they were all sacrificed. Moreover, he won’t be showing any gratefulness for saving him. He considers all other races inferior and wants them to obey his commands. So by no means, you are supposed to show him any mercy.
