I think this is the one:

As much as I like redheads, I don't really like this one, mostly because she has that huge scar on her chin.

Here's something I just thought of: if it happens that you can romance the same companion with either gender, would you use one of the companion customizations for one or both of your characters? For example, my male Trooper uses the customization for Elara that gives her slicked-back black hair and slightly darker skin. If Elara becomes a SGR option, my female Trooper will likely not use a customization, because it would feel really weird to have two characters romancing the same companion who looks exactly the same.

...especially since they're listed as "rivals" in my legacy.

That is indeed the one, and even though she has the Indiana Jones scar, she still looks about as hot as pixels can look.

Personally I'd like to see as many SGR options as possible to really keep things interesting and vibrant, but I'm hopeful that the Bioware devs are taking a while on this to make sure it's done right.

I'm really hoping that the devs don't go the way of creating new companions just for this, as a lot of players have their eye on existing companions. Were this a single player game, you just know that mods would already have been implemented to allow this ^_^
Lmao, I always wished my male Jedi Knight could hit on Doc especially since some of their conversations to begin with are pretty Sherlock/Watson gay tension-y.

Thanks for the pic, and I agree it would feel weird, especially if the other character was your spouse.
And thanks to Captain_Zone for bringing the Kira thing up

Greetings guys and gals! For the newer posters, welcome to the thread! It's been a great and fasincating read recently. I've been playing the game to meet more companions, and experience more stories. I have finally met Lord Scrouge on my Jedi and I actually found myself sad that a dps version of him wasn't available for SWs.

I'm sure many of the posters have read about the quarterly report from EA. I found this little detail talking about Legacy and Allies as both coming out Q1 of this year. Legacy was 1.2, so I wonder what Allies is? Could it be the story patch we've been waiting for? I hope so; any thoughts?

There's been some speculation that with a name like "Allies", something companion-related is in the works... Personally, though, I'm afraid that fiscal Q1 -- April-June -- is too soon for the SGRA content, if it was still with the writers at the beginning of March. (Not to mention, if it were slated by midsummer, I think Daniel Erickson might have said something more like "soon" and not "this year". >_>; But that's pretty fuzzy logic )

If this DOES bring the SGRA changes in, of course, I'll be thrilled. ;D I just suspect it's a bit too soon, especially since 1.3 is slated to be "lighter" in content than 1.2, which was an enormous patch. (1.4 perhaps?! ;D)
