Who would YOU like to see as added companions? [Potential Spoilers]

We all know Bioware has talked about adding additional companions in the future. But I thought I'd take this opportunity to get the communities opinion on what companions you hope are added for different classes.

Usually 9 times out of 10 and I'm just guessing, no matter our class we've all came across people along our journey's that we wish we could take with us as a companion strictly because of their interest in the story.

One such example I get from Imperial Agent players(being one myself as well I tend to agree) is Mia Hawkins that you meet on Tatooine, she is military trained and a former assassin and terrorist within the Ghost Cell that eventually escaped and is giving you information.

She helps out a lot and seems to have a deeper story within her waiting to come out or at least be explored, you do have the option of sparing her and if you do she continues her run from the Empire although she says she wishes she could come with you, not to mention the prospect of carrying around one of the IA's most wanted with you leaves a sense of if you will turn her in or not, as well as companion quests where you can undermine your own Imperial Intelligence to stop them from tracking her down. The prospect of such things is very appealing I feel.

As there is nothing left for her on Tatooine the common sense idea is to have her come with you without letting Imperial Intelligence know. You even get a mail from her later saying how she should hate the empire and should be dead on Tatooine but isn't, and is struggling constantly running.

For these reasons I wish she was a companion, she is someone from the "other side" so to speak that could be a valuable ally and could have a deep story to follow for companion questing as well.

Eventhough she is in the story for a short time, she seems to have left an impact on IA players that I've actually seen threads about her, wishing to add her as a companion, and wanting more expanding on her story because of how interesting it is and what kind of past she could have.

Point being, we've all come across a "Mia Hawkins" during our questing regardless of what class we've run, someone who peaked our interest and had a story we'd like explored deeper, especially as a companion potentially.

So since Bioware is intending on adding more companions in the future, I'd like to give this opportunity for the community voice to be heard on what characters they'd like to see added as companions for their classes in future content patches.

Have fun and remain constructive

i dont recall too many names, but i think i would have rather been forced to choose between companions. and maybe that something BW will add int he future.

it will certainly make the romance options more meaningful. or if one companion is a total jerk (but effective in combat) it means another companion will leave or not be willing to join you because of their differences of philosophy.

it'd be cool to see a mandalorian companion or maybe some pet companions (non-sentient non-humanoids), could work in interesting plot points regardless of what companion it is, i'd just like to see more aliens like khem val who have a distinct look and backstory that sets them apart from other companions

I'd welcome a second aligment companion. One that would thorougly discuss your actions, motives and bring more content about your own personal agenda.

My knee-jerk response was Nico Okarr, the smuggler from the "Return" Trailer. Rowr. I seem to have his astromech in my party, so I'm holding out hope that I can use that as a conversation-starter at some point.

For people I'd like to have along to watch their story unfold, as a Jedi Knight, the one that's hit me pretty hard so far was Agent Galen from the Knight storyline on Nar Shadaa.

Watcher 2 also seems to have an explorable story. It is almost as if these characters are dangled in front of us and then NOT given to us as companions. It's saddening and at other times frustrating.

Knee jerk reply: Thana Vesh, for inquisitor (and maybe warrior too?).
Planet: Taris, class: sith juggernaut (I think)
