I've just been wondering lately, why does everyone hate Skadge?

Tonight I dreamt that I was given the option to kill Skadge during a conversation aboard the ship (Though for some reason, it was the cargo hold of the JEDI ship, not the Bounty Hunter one).

Oh, to dream, to lose oneself to fancies of the soul and for but a moment believe the makebelieve, fulfil the heart's desires and lay to rest one's worries, to succumb, nay, embrace unconscious tranquility and glimpse the peace of eternal slumber. The joy of dreams.

Roll a BH and play through Belsavis. You will then understand that Skadge is the Worst. Companion. Ever.

Well, when you first meet him, he's very unplesant. He's rude, loud, overly violent. This girl actually had him at - 538 affection at one point. I mean, you get used to him when his affection is raised, but he's still violent and rude.

He is the Jayne of the BH crew, and while Jayne has his lovable moments he also has his complete and utter basterd moments. Skadge starts out as a bastard and doesn't have a town of mud farmers who worship him or a funny hat so his lovable moments are not as frequent as Jayne. So he leaves a bad first impression and a lot of people just aren't interested in raising his affection.

I maintain that Kaliyo is a worse companion, but that is because she is Saffron who was meant to be a villian....and the number of companions in the game who basically are Firefly characters is rather surprising.

Firefly=One of the greatest sci-fi series ever. I completely agree though with what you said, Jayne is an utter bastard but he has his moments, and those moments are more often and nicer than any of Skadge's.

My main issue with Skadge is that he's transparently bad. If maybe there was a scene where you learn he had some seriously damaging background then I'd at least sympathize with him.

Honestly, not only is he awful, which is fine, more or less, but he also reads as sexually predatory in the early conversation on Belsavis and again in the first conversation on the ship. It is incredibly creepy and I could very easily see it being triggering for anyone who had trauma of a similar nature in their past.
