Scholar is a Tag in Divinity: Original Sin 2 that allows the player to have certain dialogue with NPCs and certain options during Quests. Please see below for a list.
Do any of the NPC's you can hire have this tag? I'm trying to read the Hymn on bloodmoon and I don't have the tag myself and I'm doing a solo honor run
Probably the best tag in the game, you can do lots with this tag in terms of finding out more information, bypassing fights, or even solving quests for example in Act 2 the Danger to Herself and Others quest. Highly recommend your persuasion character to have this tag.
