for torian and mako to be romantic you need to actually keep choosing that option and encouraging it. if mako is on that story arc you will not be able to romance either of them until you either tell them to stop talking about it (as in take an option like, its not gonna work out) or you let it go to the end of its storyline (which isnt very deep) and they end up breaking up anyway and than you can get back to romancing either one of them depending on your gender/affection

the only thing the mako/torian romance does is create a series of extra conversations which lead to you either telling them to break up or you encourage them and they fail on their own and break up and than its back on track with whatever other companion arc you were on

thier romance doesnt happen at all if you already are on a romance arc with mako prior to getting torian, but its at most slightly delayed if you do it the other way around

as a female bounty hunter i had to jump through the mako/torian arc before being able to romance torian myself, it took all of an extra 10 minutes of conversations, so its not even a big delay. and yes i was actually encouraging her to go for him so i could see how that would play out, because i didnt care about romancing him myself, but the option to do that came up later anyway since they fail.
If I could give you a batch of freshly made cookies from the oven through the internet, I so would do that right now.

So heres a question: If I marry Mako before getting Torian will this Torian-Mako romance arc be avoided?

Now, she grew on me as a character and all and I do not see myself liking Torian in the slightest and since we simply can't kill unwanted companions off for good, I must ask, am I screwed?

If not, then do I just level my Underworld Trading alt up enough to then stuff Torian's face with Rank 6 Companion Gifts, or do I just reroll my whole character? Of course, after reading how Mercs with Concussive Missile have it way easier than Powertechs against those two guards, the idea to reroll in already in my mind.
I am not sure if this information helps, but it might be related to what you are asking:

I was having trouble starting the romance arc with Vette on my warrior, and I posted on the forums ... someone told me that certain companion quests are related to which Act/Chapter you are in, for your class chain. As soon as I finished the current Chapter, a whole new bunch of stuff opened up with Vette.

So perhaps you could "quest ahead" in the class chain, start your romance with Mako, and keep her from being interested in Torian

I am a female BH
I greenlit the first convo with Mako when she asks how you feel regarding Torian. The subject never came back up again, and then once I got torian's faction into the 6k range (and above Mako's) i finished the arc where we get married very quickly after that - going from mid 6k to 9k within the course of the love arc. After that, i got the quest where he is kidnapped and during the ending Mako was doing most of the talking, and the fawning all over him - as if they were an item, however he and I had already gotten married. I have to admit, i am a bit annoyed that her reactions in that way are part of the concrete dialogue (My husband is also a BH merc, male and we run our storyline quests back to back). You'd think that they would have changed that part up a bit if you are already deep into, or at the end of the love arc with him already.

him getting kidnapped is not actually a companion quest and happens as part of the BH storyline regardless of your affections

i had 0 affection with torian and had never used him or spoken with him aside from the arc where you get him first (which is also bh storyline and forced on you)

i built affection and did the rest of the actual companion quests long after the kidnapping, it looks like you found a bug that yea they probably should have forseen ahead of time

---

on another note though, a lot of the quests in this game are set in a specific time line of their own and its often possible to jump time lines

for example if you finish your class line you may see events that cant take place until after a planet line has been completed, but if you didnt do the planet line prior the people and places will be out of sync

this also happens with the flash points which have a time line of their own, if you complete say all of the flashpoints before finishing the voss planet story arc, people and places will be out of sync in the timelines

without giving any major spoilers im talkign specifically about the voss ambasador, what he does on voss takes place before what he does in the flashpoints, though its possible to complete them out of order

there are many more examples, its something to keep in mind, if you do things out of order, the story arcs will be out of order and may refer to things that should have happened in a different sequence, its the drawback of creating a game with a story progression that must also be persistent at the same time
This is not the signature you're looking for...

Question. I have never been in the convo that would put me in a romance path with Mako. However just now Torian asked me if he can date her. Does that mean I screwed up my romance path with Mako? I'm playing male BH btw.

I have over 9000 affection points with Mako and Torian has a little over 1000. Does this mean anything?

If Mako starts accepting courting gifts, am I good to go on romancing her? (Male BH)

Aenene, if it makes you feel better that is definitely a bug. I'll report it for you and see if we can reproduce what happened and fix it. If you have the time, please submit your own bug report with as many details as you can remember through the game client. It will help immensely in isolating where the break happened.

Thanks!

When I did it, the kidnapper said come save him, unless he isn't marriage material. While my Mako was scared for him, I picked the opitions that delacred he was mine "Nobody touches my man""If they so much as scuff his boots they're dead!". After I rescued him, I chose the flirt opition "I guess I make good bait, huh?""Well, I did always find myself attracted to you". Mako, in response to my flirt towards Torian, said "Woah, save it for the ship you two". She then said she would leave us alone on the way back. I was married to him too, so it's weird, I guess we chose different things?

No, it doesn't. The thing only occurs of his aff is higher than hers while youre a male bounty hunter, or vice versa. All you have to do is say it's unprofessional, or let it play out. As previously stated, they break up in the end.
