My characters' affection rating for Mako:

Jedi Knight: Polite.
Jedi Consular: Polite but would find her too "young" to romance.
Smuggler: Probably make fun of her and take advanatge of her.
Trooper: Finds her intelligence useful but would have little tolerance for her weak stomach for violence.
Sith Warrior: Force crushes her little metal skull after the first 3 stupid words out of her mouth.
Sith Inquisitor: Might try to force dominate her and make her a slave.
Bounty Hunter: Thinks she is a whiny little ****.
Imperial Agent: Would accept her as a companion and value her intelligence gathering.

Mako is horrible she dosnt really fit in with everyone else in the crew and shes always mad when you do your job and kill someone. I prefer Gault he's devil personality is awesome.

I find Mako to be okay so far (just started a BH yesterday).

She doesn't come off as naive (she seems pretty street-wise to me).

Though, I so wish there were more Dark Sided or even more neutral female companions in the game.

Kaliyo is pretty much it (I don't count DS Jaesa b/c I find her to be a joke). Unless you consider SCORPIO to be a female I suppose.

It just seems like most females fit the cute/sweet "girl next door" role b/c they are all there for romance for the most part.

I haven't played Smuggler yet, so I'm not sure about Risha...I heard she's kinda neutral, so she would be an exception too.

My merc is almost level 37 now and hasn't let Mako off the ship since getting Gault. She was a lousy healer even when geared up, her in-combat chatter was annoying, her companon story is yawn-inducing.

I mean, I eventually warmed up to Vette on my femwarrior and Vette and Mako are cut from the same basic cloth: very young and very ingenuous despite having a certain amount of street smarts. But warming up to Mako? Not happening. Vette added a sort of lightness to what I think is the grimmest class story in the game. Mako adds...what...nothing comes to mind.


Not just the pretty little sidekick? Nope. Not since she contracted the rakghoul plague and I have no inclination to give her a vaccine (switch customizations).

Actually, I've found that the only one that doesn't fit in with the crew is Skadge. He's way too bloodthirsty for everyone else.

But, when you come to think of it, the Bounty Hunter crew is sort of an analogue to the crew of Serenity. The BH is Mal, Gault is Wash, Mako is Kaylee, Torian is Zoe, Skadge is Jayne, and Blizz is River. Okay, I'm stretching on that last one, but he is a lot of awesome in a small, unassuming package.

Well Tali herself always gave me this feeling that she was supposed to appeal to my white knight side, strangely I don't get that from Mako, she just comes across as a hanger on who has no real reason to hang about my ship after Blood is dead.

Agent is supposed to be a professional regardless of your alignment and Kaliyo is just an obstructive, chaotic element. Kaliyo would probably suit a Bounty Hunter a lot more, but I wouldn't replace Mako.

I'd gladly replace Torian with Kaliyo though. At least Kaliyo has a sense of humor and says something interesting once in a while...
Ehh, I think they added Kaliyo as a hired gun for the fact that she conflicts with the agent a bit, so it's at least interesting in that respect. Ensign Temple however, is the most boring ***** around! Maybe I should consider chatting with her once or twice before I judge but the mission on Hoth didn't leave a good impression.

Mako adds a lot to a Bounty Hunter story sassy much?

Vette is sassy. Mako is whiny. I actually wish even Vette was with my BH and not with my SW.
