Mako's philosophy is "don't kill anyone unless they piss me off"

You gain affection with her when you talk about killing Tarro Blood or anyone else she personally dislikes

It's kind of baffling to me how boring I find her when her character could be very interesting. She's had a rough life and ...interesting origins. But it's like the writers went to such lengths that she'd be angst-free and non-intimidating (the anti-Kaliyo, if you will), that she's colorless.
Yeah, I agree. I'd love to see her do *something* with that whole past. But nope. She's still all cutesy. It feels like she was tailor made to cater to all the guys who loved Tali and wanted a version of her that was younger and more docile.

I think the difference between Mako and Kaliyo is that Mako can suit some BHs, professional ones who don't kill for pleasure but necessity (which the Bounty Hunter Code says you should), whereas Kaliyo doesn't really work with the Imperial Agent because the Imp. 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...

There is 2 basic way to build a BH IMO. You can be a mandalorian (more LS) or a thug/assassin (DS).
Torian/mako are the mandalorian companion. While skadge/gault are the thug companions. Blizz, is too cute to take a side and everyone loves him.
For the IA, Lokin/Temple are for the patriot AI, while Kalyio/SCORPIO are for the "opportunist" agent . Vector is for the pure LS idealist agent.
As a rogue agent you are not professional at all. You can completely screw the empire for your own profit. Being an agent is a way to have access to a lot of stuff/money and nobody mess with you except the Siths. The same way Tano Vik is in the military, to have a lot of stuff to blow, and be paid for that.

They makes sense in the crew they are in. Remove Torian for Kalyio, and I will be pissed of as a BH. And Torian have absolutely no room in the Agent crew. He have his rules, and the agent have others rules. He seek worthy prey for a great fight, while the agent is all about deception and cunning (there is nothing worthy in it).
For my LS agent, Kalyio is quite crazy, but I'm attached to her, in the end. She have crazy way to show she likes me, but you can count on her in the end. While for example SCORPIO want to kill you, from the beginning to the end.

I think I would swap Gault for Akaavi and vice versa, but it would make 2 mandalorians for the BH. Still, it would make more sense for both crew.

Besides for the fact that she can gather details on your next target, I find her to be like a little girl who is friends with a killing machine (I say this because I based my BH on Predators {The aliens}) I don't care much for Mako; considering how the story goes in the beginning, I feel like I'm almost forced to babysit her.
I hate mobs that over-hype themselves, especially those that are "trained to kill Jedi/Sith" only for them to get curb-stomped

Personally I do not mind Vette. As much as I carry on about my BH being a convict and murderer-type who wuld sooner kill Mako then do her any favors, he would actually like Vette and be willing to romance her since she is kind of free-spirited and laid back.

Of course my SW is a total monster and would have certainly killed Vette by now. Screw the shock collar, he would have just force-choked and snapped Vette's neck.

I'm pretty sure my companions are conspiring against my SW. She'd respect them for that, though. (I think she encouraged Vette to kill her in her sleep.) Strangely enough, they're getting along, though. I'm fairly sure that my SW sees Vette as some kind of demented acolyte in terror or something. (Like, she keeps hoping that she'll be able to make a proper Sith out of Vette. Which is doomed to fail. But my SW is an idiot, so that's okay.)

Mako has a red side that you discover when you send her to gather ingredients and she reminds you to not have too much fun without her since she can handle that...
