Thana Vesh as a companion

I would accept her on my ship ONLY if the devs give us the opportunity to freeze companions in carbonite.

Thana Vesh is stupid. Annoying. And gets herself caught THREE times, which also makes her incompetent. Why would I want to have such a failure as a companion? I always enjoyed curbstomping her after she outlived her usefulness.

My SI tried very hard to put "the moves " on her--to no avail, of course. When he realized it was a lost cause he dropped her like a bad habit because if he couldn't have her, no one would. I believe it made him a better Sith for that.

signed. I love Thana to pieces, for better or for worse. If she was real and wasn't quite an evil ***** (she actually had other PASSIONS outsde of being pissed) I'd totally do her. Wow, that'd make for a violent love story subplot. Off screen you hear screaming, grunts, roars of murder, then ******, lmfao

The only thing that made having to deal with Thana all through Empire Taris was getting to kill her afterwards. I am already saddled with on Tarisian companion I can't stand. I don't need another I like less.

Thana wouldn't last ten minutes as any of my imperials' companion. Sharing a space ship with her would be intolerable. None have killed her yet, but they certainly are tempted to and that would be a bridge too far. Personally, I like it that she's a character that can appear again or not, depending on your actions. The game needs more of those kind of consequences. I'm still waiting for the two sith whose quests my characters have refused on Korriban and who threaten consequences to actually do something.

My SI spent every conversation choice driving Thana up the wall with anger, it was delightful. I'd love her as a companion just to say things that made her angry.

(Yes I know, this causes problem for republic players, as they want in on the pie too...but oh well).

For the naysayers...
She has a great character actually
-She plays hard to get and this only adds depth to her
-You should realize she actually listens to you (She does whatever Light/Dark side choices you want). She never outwardly tries to kill you or anything, she's just got a bit of an inferiority complex
-Shes actually a born-to-be-sith (sure you can turn the Sith Warrior companion evil but Ive heard that shes lame. Plus Sith Inquis, we can't really change anyone to dark side)
-She comes off arrogant, slightly one dimensional - but as the story progresses - you realize she's actually just an insecure sith. Pride & Insecurity go together you know
-Yeah you can choose to kill her or save her, that is a problem - I'm sure the quest chain can be retconned for people who want her as a companion or something
-The voice acting is essentially in the game already

Specifically due to my main being a Sith Inquisitor
-As a class inspired by palpatine, our inability to twist/turn someone to the darkside (ala anakin) is pretty disappointing. Especially because our character is constantly asking for his/her hand to be held by smarter people for guidance in the story.
-I'll just take Thana over Ashara, thanks.

Anyways, as a sith inquisitor - I feel robbed by my story in general. I'm at 45 and I've read the end story spoilers and it's still just a yawn for me. The companions suck, especially as a male. We get a buncha randoms including a mute dashade who just wants to eat as our first companion...plus our only romance-able companion is a barbie Jedi who can't truly fall to the dark side. I don't think I'm the only Sith inquisitor player who thinks our story is just mediocre.
EDIT: after finishing the game and rolling an Agent alt, my impressions are the same, Sith Inquis story is lacking.

I agree with this. I just encountered Thana and immediately I thought... "This is the person who I should be recruiting for my apprentice!" I did a quick search and came upon this thread. Obviously others feel the same way.
