Companions you actually LIKE

There are tons of threads out there spouting the companions you wish you could kill or never have taken on in the first place, etc.

So, let's change it up. Who are the companions you actually like? Maybe it is one you fell in love with right away or maybe they grew on you as you progressed through their story or maybe it's just the fact that one companion suits your play style of your class particularly well. It does not matter why you like them. Let's feel the love .

Whenever I think about my various characters' companions, I invariably think about Kira. This is probably because my first character was a JK guardian tank and she best complimented that role until I got Doc, but even after Doc there were times when killing stuff faster was preferable to being invincible. Further I think the romance was great too.

Aric Jorgan is my very favorite companion. I love the grumpy exterior around a heart of gold, the voice, the romance, and how the relationship between the trooper and Jorgan progresses through the game. Plus crap just dies with him around lol.

Lord Scourge - Such an interesting character! Complicated and damn, that voice is just swoon-worthy. He provides a really interesting foil to my LS jk. Would love him as a romance option, but even so, one of my favorites.

Blizz - OMGADORABLE with a rocket launcher. Do I need to say more?

Zenith - Again with the complicated hotness with fabulous voice that's unavailable for a romance option Completely ruthless but with laudable goals.

Vector! So sweet! Pretty much the only sane character on the IA ship, lol. Just a rock.

The rest of them that didn't make my "hate them" list or this list fall into the "like" or "don't mind them" category.

By the way, I could be wrong, but it sounds like you're upset about the "I don't like this companion" type threads. The reason you see so many of them is because having a companion you don't like or who doesn't fit your character is irritating and, beyond that, immersion breaking. Having the game override whether you'd want a character with you or not can be upsetting.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

So far, I haven't come across any companions I hate. The only companion that I am not really fond of so far is Skadge. He's just boring and brutish.

I'm absolutely enamored with ever Agent companion except for SCORPIO, which I am just sort of "meh" about, she's cool, just not much to her, yet.

But between the Agent, Smuggler, Consular, and Bounty Hunter, all of which I have gone to 50 with, I am cool with all of them in general. Even the ones my character doesn't really get along with.

I never found a companion to be immersion breaking just because my character does not get along with them. In stories, in reality, there are acquaintances, co-workers, and family that will bug the crap out of you. It would be more immersion-breaking to me if I felt like everyone around me was my soulmate.

Actually, it's harder for me to describe the companions I don't like. Mostly because I like the majority of them. Takes a lot to get on my "WTH do you think you are, you waste of space on my ship?" list, anyway. I'll narrow it down to my favorite five, then. So in order:

(1) Torian Cadera tops my list. He has a truly impressive sense of honor and dedication. Of all companions, he seems the one who's most centered. This is a guy who knows exactly who he is, what he wants, and how he's going to go about getting it. He's absolutely yummy a character.

(2) Malavai Quinn comes in at a close second. The word I use to describe him is "fascinating". I just think he's the most interesting of the companion characters, from start to finish. He's smart, skilled, tenacious. There's very little about Quinn that I didn't like, in fact.

(3) Vette is just plain adorable. The way my warrior met her was perfection. Every time she talks I think of that initial meeting, "Chirp, chirp, chirp!" I can see her easily fitting into the crazy, hectic world of my Sith warrior, wreaking havoc with just plain awesome humor.

(4) Corso Riggs is the most incredible cowboy of a character. I can easily see him riding bucking brontos for the sheer fun of the effort. That, and he provides the most awesome foil for my smuggler character. He's pure pleasure.

(5) Khem Val makes the list, too. I think of him like he's a fungus. You know, as in, he grows on you. Took a while as he kept threatening to devour my sorcerer, anyway. But there came a point where I sensed that his insulting "Little Sith" was becoming more of a affectionate phrase. That he suffered so much in order to save my sorcerer netted my own consideration. He's awesome.

Just a few, only got far as my Sorc.

Mako and Vette - both cute as a button and generally nice to have around, i always find it hard to be darkside when vette is around.

Kira - More human than most Jedi, also as with Vette and mako she has a nice personality which keeps me from going crazy and killing people.

Khem Val - If you had of asked me a few months ago i would never have said Khem, but as time has gone on and i understand him more he has grown on me.

Ashara Zavros - Same as most of the female companions, she is a little niave though which can be a bit annoying. Yes i'm not a darkside inquisitor but that doesnt make me a jedi.

Talos Drellik - I have a love for history and learning so he was always going to be a favourite of mine, it was nice to get a companion who wasn't a blodthirsty monster, a cold pirate or a naive girl.
The siege of Coruscant was in fact brought to an end after the republic agreed to give the Empire a Shrubbery, one that looked nice and wasn't too expensive.

I like all of them except Skadge and Kaliyo. But my favorites: Mako, Torian, Blizz, Jorgan, Kira, Corso, and Akaavi. The rest are great, but the aforementioned are my favorite.

Blizz is totally adorable, makes me wish I had a jawa plush toy.

I love how Khem Val is pretty much the 8 foot tall, *** kicking embodiment of the values of the sith empire.

Mako is cool and down to earth, very liekable personality.

Andronikos Revel is a total ******, hes like a blaster-slinging space cowboy and his voice is cool.

I like talos drelik alot because he's a history nerd like me, and one of the few companions in the game that seems like an intillectual type.

Also, on my combat medic, it took me awhile, but I warmed up to Tanno Vik. And now I go everywhere with him.

Though I still get a big kick out of Forex's "enthusiasm."
