My Inquisitor is a healer so I'm pretty much forced by game mechanics to use a tank. I choose Khem Val.

It would really be nice if the game let us swap roles into our companions so we could select companions based on our affinity for them rather than because of thinly veiled game mechanics needs. I'd love to use Ashara as the Light-side foil to my Sorceror's evil ways.

Ashara because I prefer melee DPS being a sin tank. She annoys heck out me because she hates me shocking everyone. Good think I'm Pureblood. Negative affection or screwing up my stealth means you get punished. Yes I have it keybinded.

Punish should should be legacy unlock. So many companion need to be backhanded

Xalek! Who wouldn't want a big angry Khaleesh guarding them?!
Though each time he goes "Yes, mastah" with that accent of his I feel like I've gone back several centuries to a pre-Civil War era!
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

As a Tank, it's usually Ashara or Andy, depending much of the time on my mood. Speaking in terms of character, though, Andy's just flat-out my favorite. I really like the fact that while everyone else in my group was an apprentice, or a servant, Andronikos was just there because he respected my Inquisitor, and thought hanging out with him was fun. He was a cool guy and I felt like he added something of a humanizing element to things in a "Sith have buddies too" sort of way.

...and yeah, Steve Blum didn't hurt, either.

It has to be either Khem Val or HK-51 because everyone else's loyalty and/or ability remains in question.

Andronikos, also citing pirate + Steve Blum as a reason. Being able to scorch through mobs doesn't hurt, either (dps 'sin)

I like Khem, Xalik and HK-51(wished he had a HK-47 customization)

Talos is too filly for my taste

Xalek on my Sorc, and Khem Val is also geared as a back up. In case I send Xalek on a mission and he isn't back in time.

Talos on my Sin, and I don't send him anywhere so that I can always have him available.

Khem Vhal because i am a Dark side Sith Lord and i love that Khem's Hunger is never satisfied. I play a powerful Sith lord and my right hand man is a Shadow Killer, that's just awesome.

That and he kind of sounds like Khal Drogo from game of thrones.
