I believe he has a damage absorption stance but now ill have to check to be sure. So far on Hoth he's been pretty successful as a tank.

EDIT
this is what originally led me to believe he was a tank. Still would like more info on the stances

Torian remains at the top of my list of favorite companions so far. He's sometimes been beat out by Blizz but typically ends up coming out ahead. Quinn is fascinating me, as well, but Torian is just...better. At least he would die before he even thought of betraying my BH, heh.

I think the BH really did luck out when it came to companion charaters, though. When you sit back and think of those characters you'd really want to hang with, given the chance, there are few crews that match the BH's, anyway. I think I'd be stabbed in the back on the warrior's ship, fight off grabby hands on the knight's ship, have bad dreams on the inquisitor's ship, or worry I'm being indocrinated on the agent's ship. Not sure about the smuggler's crew, though. They play cards over there and that might be fun. And wookies are about as cool as jawas, I think.
BH does have some amazing companions. I can't comment on Skadge because I don't have him yet (though he seems like a gigantic *** from the one time I did see him on Belsavis), but all the others are very interesting and fun in their own ways. I ADORE Gault, had no idea he'd be as amusing as he is. Blizz is adorable, Mako's like a sister, and Torian is, well, Torian. I dig Mandos. It's hard to imagine anyone beating out Quinn, just because it's so damn amusing to make him uncomfortable with the flirts, but Torian does give him a run for his money. (Hey, he can cook right? Though Quinn does offer to play nanny with the kids; hmmm...)

To be honest with you, I liked that flirt. But my BH is something of a smart-*** and likes to make glib remarks, so I guess it would depend on your character's personality. I can see how that would be very unappealing if you see your BH as someone who is quite serious all the time.
"True mastery is to feel the flames of your passion, to dance with the fire, to live in it, to fully embrace the primal forces of destruction and creation, and not be burned to a cinder, to survive and prosper because you loved the flame, used the flame, but did not allow yourself to be consumed by it; this is greatness; this is Sith."

I'm looking forward to getting him as a companion, but it's going to be hard giving up Gault <3 Wish I could keep both of them out!

*raises hand*

LONG story short, there was a guy who emotionally abused me who compared himself to a different JYB-voiced character. Nothing against Torian, but I wouldn't be able to romance a character with that voice after that.

I Agree.

I need more darkside options to tell him to shove his 'mando'a' crap and never speak to me in that made-up language again. Akaavi would rip him to shreds. Better yet, let me kill him and dump the carcass.

Decorative scars, soul patch, and a Beiber haircut? I was born to hate that tool. It's like the copy and pasted Corso.

Seriously Bioware, bring back the ability to axe a companion if we don't like them. Bieber Fett would be at the top of my list.

At level 50 I have Torian decked out in purple and orange with purple mods and his dps in amazing. I don't use Mako anymore - don't need her. He holds his own in pvp better than any of my other companions - and he just looks cool.

Torian's dps is really nice with proper gear--and he's tough enough to stand up to some pretty nasty damage as well. Not to level 50 yet, but I like having him out.

And I like him as a romance as well.

His voice is great. The only one I like better has to be Andronikos.

I havent yet played that far with my BH, but its possible that he is waiting you to proceed in your class storyline maybe? I had the same thing with Mako, despite me handing her every gift possible, she didnt talk to me at all (I had almost 75% of her affection). Then once I proceeded past a certain point in my storyline, everything seemed to unlock at once and she gave me 7-8 discussion missions on the ship in a row.
