Kaliyo. She just doesn't jive with my Agent. at all. She makes as much sense for an agent companion as Corso does for the smuggler.

Neither one of those characters jive with my AG and SM. Kaliyo is way too unpredictable and too much trouble for my straight laced Agent and Corso is way too honorable for my dirty, backstabbing, money making smuggler.

It ALSO doesn't help that I hate Corso's creepy possessiveness over my Fem!Smuggler. She is not a "lady." She is a player and damn proud of it too. she has no qualms about killing anyone, even women, for trying to kill her. And when she SAYS NO YOU TAKE NO FOR A *********** ANSWER. Also, his snide and rude comments when ever she flirts with anyone that isn't him would earn him a blaster to his face were she able to.

Rusk - I just...wha?? Why the heck is this guy on my ship???

Nadia - Want to smack her every time she opens her mouth. Seriously.

Temple - Ok, Temple I didn't mind taking with me to begin with but (IA spoilers)

And finally, Gault - Gault *technically* is on the list because I really wanted to kill him to begin with. Really wanted to. However, the guy has completely grown on me, and I'm now glad he's on my crew.
(Shout out to my trooper crew, which I love in its entirety!)


Pffft, my BH wanted to as well....but now she's head over heels for him. Stupid sexy Devaronian....

**** YOU BIOWARE FOR MAKING HIM NON-ROMANCABLE.

You can also say the same things about Corso, JK droid and that trooper's Cathar whos name escapes me. Only Qyzen on the republic side I think is an odd first character for the JC.

I mean what really adds insult to it is that we're stuck with her for the best part of 30 levels, and the fact that all the main companion quests are going to be about her. Its so uncharacteristic of an Imperial Agent to go out of his way to fix up some psycho Ratataki mercenary's personal life. What also annoys me is that she's the only tank companion we have until Belsavis, meaning my healer will more or less have to put up with her for an even longer haul.
RE:Corso. I so do not agree. He REALLY should have been a Trooper companion, because, unless you're playing a straight up, pure LS!Smuggler, he so does not fit. At all. Building your power base, having people work for you? He *********** HATES THAT. A Smuggler has connections dude!! And a Smuggler isn't always gonna be squeaky clean and peachy keen on authority. Get your head out of your ***. And take your stupid named weapons with you.

i dunno why everyone hates him. the moment he just punched the Twi'lek down in front of Harken made me instantly think, "Wow, this guy is a bad***". He's a great tank, and I often can't decide between him and Khem Val.

However, yet again I can't say I'm a Jaesa fan. I want a real Sith APPRENTICE! we have enough double-blade wielders without Jaesa, and now Nomen Karr's lost padawan ends up on my ship. She's a good DPS, and I respect her for that, but the split personallity thing just makes me feel awkward. On one hand you've got a crazy ***** who is desperate for a *******, but on the other hand is the goody two-shoes Jedi who wants to change the Empire. Something in the middle, please? A companion with a single-bladed lightsaber? Thank you.
I'm kind of regretting the LS!Jaesa myself. I would SO HAVE LOVED a middle ground grey character for her. You start telling her how you envision the Empire (my SW is very pro-empire, just...better and not so bloodthirsty) and your apprentice follows that, agrees with you. Not some goody two shoes zealot hell bent on reforming the Empire to the Republic (that's what it feels like anyway). That's not what my LS!SW wants, hon...she's still very much bigoted to other races, outside Vette, and believes them to have their set place,. They just should be treated better...give them incentives to stay where they are instead of rebelling. C:

But DS!Jaesa, as amusing as I find her, is just as annoying with her dark fanaticism and cat-in-heat ways. B/

Companions I did not want to take:

SW: Broonmark
Agent: Kaliyo
BH: Gault* + Skadge

*Here's the thing, Gault eventually grew on me enough that I changed my mind, Skadge? Not in the slightest.
Typhojem Legacy, Jung Ma server

The Bounty Hunters that Maul and Savage fought recently for example in Clone Wars all seemed cooler and badder than any of the BH companions except Skadge.
Well, that's more given to circumstances than anything else. You have a slicer with a heart of gold and a weakness for ugnaughts, a scoundrel that's been on the run, a 19-year-old mandalorian, a jawa with wanderlust, and Skadge.

Erm...isn't he a good 30+ years older than the bounty hunter?

This matters why? Quinn is like 37.

Torian, in my opinion, is far too young for the BH. And too pretty. And too boring. Ick.

I'd agree with that. I passed on the bh romance because Torian seemed much too young for my particular bounty hunter. I love the boy, but as a little brother-in-arms. I'm actually making a second bounty hunter with a much younger backstory that would be a better match for him.

Gault I love, but I don't know if I'd pursue a romance with him if he were made a LI. It would very much depend on how the romance was done. As it stands, he and my bh pick on each other, drink wine together while making fun of people, and generally are very good friends.
Edited to add: Gault is seriously an awesome character and I had a lot of fun writing him in my fan fic (shameless plug) "My Name is Solomon Crae."
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

To be honest, plenty of characters are meant to be out of place for what you might imagine from a chracter. They are there to show you that there are other ways to play your character.
Adding anarchist Kaliyo to loyalist Agent squad? Blam, Agent might start seeing things in a bit different light.
Same thing with Corso/Bowdaar, they can both show Smuggler the meaning of honor and loyalty, something one would not associate with Smugglers (think what Han Solo has been before and what he became after Ep4).
