I totally read "Spunky Splicer" as "Spicy Spelunker" at first. I was trying to remember if she ever mentioned this love of caves to me.

My favourite Mako quote is from a companion story dialogue with Gault.

I almost did a spit-take at that (my surround sound made it seem like she was right behind me).

I really enjoy Mako. Like, enough that I wish I could swap Kaliyo for her as my Imperial Agent's first companion. Mako just seems more appropriate personality wise: pragmatic, professional, but still caring and a bit young.
Plus, from what I've seen, she looks sweet in Imperial uniform.

Also, my own bounty hunter makes great use of her too, meanwhile Gault sucks.

Ha! I'm going to go finish my conversations with Gault! Great stuff.

I loved Mako. My favorite parts and dialogue are related to her story and how it evolves. Most especially, the conversations with "other" family (ambiguity intended to avoid spoilers).

Heh, I'm quite certain Mako would've gotten along much better with my Smuggler than my Bounty Hunter.

Gault is awesome. He has some absolutely hilarious lines and is one of my favorite of all the companions.

If we're talking sucking, then that one is easy: Skadge. Skadge is the one who sucks. I stopped giving him gifts just so I wouldn't have to hear his sleazy reaction.

I got -2092 affection from Skadge in a single conversation. Good day, but I was a bit disappointed to see A) He was still on my ship and B) The affection only goes down to -1k

Skadge needs to find out what makes a sun a star Up close and personal. Without a space suit.

I think I know what conversation that was!

My Mako story: With my Powertech, I decided early on that I would eschew the Jedi and Sith philosophies implied by the game's alignment system and have my BH be enough of an outsider to have his own code. He would always follow the letter of the contracts he accepted. Whether he was on a manhunt or a rescue mission, once he had accepted the job, he would turn down offers to betray the employer.

It was in this spirit that I collected a bounty on a Republic scientist on Hutta, one which Mako had brought to my attention, instead of letting her go when she made puppy dog eyes at me. That got Mako to tell me, before we were even finished adventuring in Fa'athra's Palace, that she found me "disgusting" and that I wasn't "who she thought I was."

The contempt very quickly became mutual, as her reactions to my behavior framed her in turn, in my mind, as a mere Bounty Hunter fan, a poseur who wanted the paychecks that came with running on a crew but who didn't have the stomach for the field work. I was relieved when I finally got the ranged DPS companion and could reassign Mako to shipboard Slicing missions that better suited her. When she and Torian hooked up, I didn't care.
