Things to Remember
Note that you can get to know the history of all your henchmen whenever you level up high enough, its always nice to know something about the people you're working with after all. Don't forget to keep the contract struck between you and your henchman in a safe place. Once you lost that or toss it away, you'll effectively be dismissing your henchman.
Also, if your henchman dies, just go to the Temple of Tyr and reclaim his/her services for the duration of the mission. That means technically they just keep respawning. Also, its good to establish the right party tactics. You can access this by clicking on your henchman. If you want them close to your or far away, the directions are all there. :)
