1) Companions turning into holo if not part of the class the current toon is logged onto. In my opinion, they should just spawn in as they were placed by their respective toons. They should be treated as decorations, not as the actual comps. I mean come on, I was really looking forward to having a Jedi Harem w/ Kira Carsen, Nadia Grell, Jaesa Wilsaam, and Ashara Zavros all in the same place xD
This isn't actually a bug. They are *meant* to do that. It might not be what you *want*, but it *is* what the studio built it to be. (For what it's worth, this behaviour has attracted a lot of criticism over the years, but it is in no way clear what they should look like on other characters, especially if the player has multiple characters of the "original" class.)

That belongs in the Bug Reports forum.

That belongs in the Bug Reports forum.

I keep getting told this is a "gift" from BioWare but honestly I don't find it amusing since it ruins the aesthetic in my stronghold. Please fix it.
It's not a gift. It's an actual bug, like the other two. It also affects Light Side Jaesa once she returns. The key thing to remember is that, from a game-mechanical point of view, the companions that "return" aren't the ones that left. In a few cases, they have different names, and some of them don't use the same weapon(s) as they did before they left.

What's broken for Kira, Scourge and LSJ is the link between the old version and the new version, so under X or Y condition, you see the "old" versions, the ones who handed over their gear when the new versions "returned".

But it's a bug.
Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.
To go to Belsavis, you must go to Belsavis.
