k so this thread is not about combat prowess (see this thread about that:http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=744755 ) but rather about the aesthetics and storylines of the various companions. Which ones do you prefer?

Ill start:
The oneliners: Have to go with Gault here. His funny comments just crack me up.

The storyline: Dr Lokin. Even before my agent was created, I knew Dr Lokin would be epic just from the stuff I read about him, and I was not dissappointed. Infact, I made my agent male even though I did not really like either Kaliyo nor Temple, just because female agents are only able to romance that boring/creepy Vector. I want a Dr Lokin romance! And Im a guy so go figure.

The character itself: I just love Blizz. A tanking jawa with a rocketlauncher. It just doesnt get more silly than that.

Sexappeal: hands down dark side Jaesa, mainly because she represents the type of woman I am generally attracted to: she has a great body, she knows what she wants, she doesnt beat around the bush and she is not afraid to take initiative. (nothing more sexy than a woman who takes initiative). Plus I like women who are a little crazy

great expectations (talking about companions here for classes I dont play yet but I expect I will like)

Doc: from what I read about him he is very flirtatious, so I expect he will remind me a lot about myself.

Lord Scourge: A Sith pureblood as Jedi knight companion? Thats just crazy. There has to be a great backstory to that...
(two Jedi Knight companions in this list..I should definately roll a JK soon lol)

female trooper chick Her name escapes me (I dont play much on the repside) but I remember seeing a very attractive female trooper companion on the Republic fleet. Curious about her backstory/romance. (even though looks dont mean much, as any female companion can be made attractive with the proper customization. Too bad you cant change body type with customizations, Mako needs to gain some weight)

Standouts for me:

Jedi Knight:

Kira Carsen - Deep story, interconnected with your character's. Cute, great romance companion
Lord Scourge - Interesting interactions and lore

Jedi Consular

Tharan Cedrax - 2 for 1 here since you get Holiday who is a blast
Zenith - Rebel anti-hero. Great summoning line, "Who do you need dead?"

Trooper

Elara Dorne - Great voice, decent story, but it's mostly the voice! *swoon*
M1-4X - Ultra-patriotic, even lines I've heard 3-4 times are still funny. E.G., he talks at one point about "the mindless hedonists of the Sith Empire" with unchecked disgust.

Smuggler

Gus Tuno - No spoilers, but his lines are great, "I am a Jedi, fear me!"
Risha - Love or hate her, but she has a good story well connected to the over all lore

Inquisitor

Lt. Talos Drellik - "Lt. Talos Drellik, Imperial Reclamation Service, at your service!" This guy is totally appropriate for a Sith Inquisitor's assistant

Warrior

Vette - Spunky, got to love Spunky. And you get to sleep with her sister and have her thank you for it!
Jaesa - Literally in love with her. Both light and dark. Very mad we can't romance the light side one.

Bounty Hunter

Blizz - Just like you said, JAWA TANK!
Gault - "Sure whatever."

Imperial Agent

Dr. Lokin - Weird, but in the most awesome way possible
Vector - Weird, in the weirdest way possible. Did you ever want to sleep with an entire species?

-------------------------------

I don't know that I have a favorite, but if I were forced to choose it would be Blizz. I hate that he's on the class I least like to play.
Below this is my referral link. If you press it you get free stuff and I get free stuff. This makes you, me....and Bioware happy, but don't let that stop you!

Warrior - tossup between Vette and Pierce. I really enjoyed everything about Vette and romancing her as a dark V character, opposites attract and all. A couple of lines during the last conversation seemed to tie it all together for me (though I did chose the LS option during that mission, without spoiling anything). Pierce is like a bro, someone whom I'd trust to have my back. Also enjoyed his Bastion storyline. Overall I thought the warrior had the strongest lineup of companions in the game as well.

Inquisitor - Really liked Khem Val, didnt really care for where the story went but, again without spoiling, I always stood by Khem. He works well with my dark inquisitors.

Agent I can't say enough about Kaliyo. Lying, cheating, manipulative, underhanded no good rotten scoundrel... and I loved every minute of it! Couldn't wait till I had another conversation available. I thought her story was extremely fun, couldn't wait to see what she was going to do next. I think the voice actress really nailed the lines, it tied the whole thing together nicely. Even when screwing someone over, she does so in such a sexy bedroom voice, I just love that. Plus she has some of the best combat lines; I have a little surprise for you and come on out I'll show you my gun. Reminds me of that scene from Ace Ventura.

Knight - Kira was the strongest companion I thought. T7 was fun as well (R2 and all) but a little too needy, in constant need of reassurance. I thought Kira's story was dynamic and engaging. Scourge was great for what he was, and I use him often, but he and I usually don't click well in conversation as I'm light side.

Councilor - Meh. Weakest companion lineup in my opinion. Didn't really dislike any of them but don't have any strong positive feelings for any either. They were just there; one healer, 2 dps, 2 tanks. Meh.

Smuggler - Risha and Bowdaar. Han, Leia and Chewie. Gus was fun but the spineless weasels routine I can only take for so long.

Those are the only classes I've finished and saw all the companion dialogue and missions, some multiple times.

Trooper - So far liking Jorgan, Elara and MX's story and dialogue.

Bountyhunter - Still only Mako, not bad but I have a feeling she's going to me more of a meh, like I felt about Nadia and Ashara. We'll see, it's still early yet.

So favorite of them all, Kaliyo.

Ill list them off by class.

Smuggler: Bowdarr: Whenever i roll around with Bowdarr i feel like Han Solo with Chewbacca, it just fits. And his story is pretty decent

Trooper: None: All of the trooper companions suck, if i had the CC's i would get HK-51, but currently broke. the only reason i use a companion on my Assault VG is i die without one.

Inquisitor: Tie between Ashara and Xalek: Both of them have decent storylines and are both fun to use as a Madness Sin.

Knight: Kira: Kira is the only companion i ever use except for that final story segment. She's a ******, has the best lines and is romanceable to boot!

Warrior: Dark Jaesa: Everything i like about Kira, put into a dark character!

Agent: Tie Between Kalyo and Ensign Rania Temple: Both are really good companions, chose Temple as my Operative romance, will choose Kalyo for my Sniper's Romance.

Bounty Hunter: Torian Cadera: Everything i like about Kira/ Dark Jaesa put into a Tech companion!

Consular: Nadia: Havent played a Consular to 55 yet, but i have seen the entire story and i like Nadia best.

There are several of them that I like to have around, like Vette, Nadia, Lokin or Elara.

But I if I have to pick only one, Khemmy, by far.
His interventions while question, his story, even his voice. I made my third inquisitor body type 1, so him calling her "little sith" makes a lot of sense and it's even cute. An adorable monster.

By my experiences.

Trooper

Elara Dorne, of course. I love to have her by my side with her excellent healing, which is good for my commando because he is DPS. I had a great time romancing and talking to Elara, which I really miss right now. I hope that they add a feature that you could just talk to your companions about different topics about your experiences with the companion or your story. She is by far my most favorite companion.

Dark Jaesa is by far my favorite companion, she is so delightfully psychotic!

The novel for Scourge's backstory is called Revan and was written by Drew Karpyshyn. It's true. That's all there is to him. If you're not Dark Side he doesn't even like you .

Her name's Elara Dorne
Spoiler

She's the 2nd companion the trooper gets and I don't consider this a spoiler because you figure this out in your first conversation with her on Taris.

My favourtie companions are Gault, because of his great one liners, Dark Jaesa because she's crazy and bloodthirsty, and HK-51 because he's the fusion of them. Also Bowdaar. Because he's a Wookiee.
This place has been an empty wasteland for a long time. No longer.

ONE: Zenith - he is simply the best. unlike the rest of the boys, he not only looks a man in his prime, his story is also that of a man with a past and the future. His ambitions do not overshadow the Main Char's plot, but are of his own and important enough. He has fantastic dialogue delivered by the best voice actor I heard so far. He has a dark edge, just enough of a bad boy to be cool rather than disgusting. He looks drop-dead gorgeous, and he is a Twi'lek (us, female players are not really given much in the droolable Aliens department. He is all we have, really)! Finally, his intro sequence beats anything in the game in terms of story game-gasm, with SIth Warrior on Taris finally killing a certain v. annoying person coming second as well as some sequences with Skavak.... and, yeah, Okay, Numen Brock

Consular's cast gets as a group the coolest designation. The silly brilliance of Tharan, the sweet Iresso who is unique in his ability to deal with his own problems without laying them on the PC's shoulders - a female romance without the Psychoanalysis 101! YAY! And, finally, the best of the best, Zenith. Awww. What a cast! Basically the only Class that comes close to Bao, Atton and Mical wonderfullness. If only Bio took pages from Obsidian's books more often in this regard!

TWO: Pierce and Quinn, taken on their own are not that special, but together they are a glorious contrast and funny as the Nine Hells. Both have very decent character customizations, and Mal has a surprising depth of character and more than a hint of a more tragic figure than appears. The only way they could have been better if Mal was a Chis and Pierce - either Zabrack or Rattataki.

THREE: Kalyio - the only female character I met so far I am actually looking forward to romancing on a male PC. She is off beat and unusual. Akaavi started very strong, but unfortunately grew boring very fast, by endlessly mining the same Mandolorian line.

And, and HONORABLE MENTION: Guss Tuno. Had the little guy been an Nautolan and a Healer with a Saber, I would place him above Pierce and Quinn. Kit Fisto who never was... AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too bad it didn't happen that way.

The rest of the joinables I have met so far are Okay'ish with the exception of Qyzen, Risha, Jaesa (DS), Elara and Nadia (those ones I didn't find appealing).
