Darth Malgus companion for finding his carbonite body easter egg on Nathema in one of Valkorions vaults.

I would much prefer to not tie the use of this to whether the character lived. It already isn't, so I see no reason for it to happen if they expand it in this way. Especially with Vaylin.

Story should always be relevant in a story driven game and honestly that's what SWTOR is, even given the dearth of story we've been given lately. I mean, this is why people who kill Arcann and Senya don't get them as companions, right? Yes, I know the companion terminal, but that was a compromise for people who had raised the affection/influence on certain companions and weren't expecting to have them removed. Personally I dislike the idea of the companion terminal and won't use it but I understand the reasons for it. But then, people who kill Arcann and Senya can't get them from the terminal, right?

And, sorry about that Paul, I didn't mean to get that other guy all het up about Jaxo. I don't even dislike that character (played female troopers and always had a vague affection for Jaxo) and I felt that entire story felt forced simply for "teh dramas".

If someone wants Vaylin as a companion, knock yourself out. I'll pass, thanks.

However...

*Watcher One (Jedi Knight storyline) is someone I'd like to have along.

*Ki Sazen (Agent storyline) would be fun, and she's got way more personality than most.

*Celvanta Grathan (Warrior storyline) would be amusing.

*Some of Vette's twi'lek friends/relatives would make good tag-alongs.

*"The Menace" (Agent storyline) would...

Spoiler


Lots of interesting possibilities.

You can with Senya, never got far enough into the DS plot to find out if you can or not with Arcann.

Don't worry about it, opinions from both sides are welcome.

Busy at the moment, I'll update the list in a moment.

The story that they want to tell has not been relevant to me since KotET ended. I'd simply like the tools to be able to tell my own at this point. This is why I like the idea that Paul has presented, as he has presented it.

Going to link from other sources. Did you mention that the Favorites would also affect companion missions? Have a setting for only a chosen eight characters show up on that list, for example. I may have missed it.

Sanju Pyne from the IA story on Balmorra. Always wished he had tagged along and we could train him up as a better Agent so then we could have had both him and Temple as our trainee's, he could have been a LI to.

Also all my +1's to Lord Cytharat and Jonas would love to see them again.

Added: Watcher One, Malgus, Ona Querit (The Menace) & Sanju Pyne.

(I don't know the names of Vette's friends ... were they the ones from her loyalty mission?)
