New Companions

At the Seattle Cantina Tour last night, I asked about a couple characters from Makeb who I thought were especially well-made. I wondered if we would see them again, particularly as *fingers crossed* companions. Eric told me that they were currently looking into what characters throughout the game people were interested in, potentially as companions (I don't have his exact wording; it was difficult to hear, sadly, but this seemed to be the gist). He said that now would be a good time to create a thread on the board asking which characters people liked and would like to see again.

He also noted specifically that the writers would not be bringing anyone back from the dead.

So, with that in mind, what characters have you seen throughout the game who you'd like to see make a return, particularly as a potential companion?

The characters I'd like to see (who I mentioned in the first place): Doctor Avesta and Lord Cytharat. Both are great characters, with fascinating romance angles (in my opinion). I'd love to see them as faction-based bonus companions.


How about the rest of you? Any other characters you'd like to see?

Personally, I'd like to see more of the companions I already have, at least some of them. (I hate Skadge with an undying passion and he's the first companion I've ever gone out of my way to get negative approval in hopes that it will actually drive him off). I've already invested a great deal emotionally in these characters and while it was neat to pick up HK and Teek, my ship is getting a bit crowded at this point and I end up wandering through, clicking on Lokin and vainly wishing for just one more conversation with him. I miss talking about archaeology with Talos and since my Marauder dumped Quinn (backstabbing bastard) and hooked up with Pierce, I'd like to see a bit more to that relationship. Blizz will always be my all time favorite character, I would love to have more time with him. I've reached the point that I've held off finishing my conversations with Mako because I don't want to walk onto my ship and see that I can't talk to her anymore.

That said, if Jonas Balker ever gets tired of playing lackey for the SIS, I'm totally kidnapping him (mostly because I know it would piss off Jorgan. Then there's the string of almost-romance options we have across the galaxy- Aristocra Saganu, Phi-Ton (a Voss or Chiss companion would be pretty cool) are the two I can think of offhand that I wish I'd had a chance to see more of.
For the record (yes I know killing them was an option, I didn't), I thought Ivory and Watcher X were the two best missed opportunities to pick up companions in the game.

Jonas Balkar from the Trooper storyline was a great character and I would love it if he could be a companion (SGR too perhaps? ) Lord Cytharat would be great too, and I agree that his situation could be sorted out. Also from the Imperial side . . .


That being said, I think it would be cool if they added more brand new companions.

Also, I would love for my Sniper to be able to run around with Watcher X. Perhaps add one of the Revanites as a companion as well. Could be our first Force Healing companion, perhaps.

Every time I finish my post I think of someone else. I would really like my DS Jedi Knight to have the option of bringing Bengal Morr into his crew. If not on Tython, then later on in the story.
