I hate April Fool’s Day. A lot. Regardless, they put a lot of effort into their “joke”, but I have to say. I do think some things would be interesting.
I’d like if I could pick the greeting, for example, from the robot or if I could have him interact with my companions. While I don’t think I have any I could romance him with (Only one that comes to mind is Holiday and then maybe Tharan would be romanceable instead of the stupid one night stand (more info below) people currently get?), I still think C2-N2 making friendships would be cool.
The robot becoming the master thing was just creepy though and straight out of Directive 7.
I don’t know, I just think it’d be neat to see stuff from companion point of views in some cases. Like when you do some class missions, they run off by themselves. Wouldn’t it be neat to momentarily get to try their class and actually go as them? On the otherhand, I like most of the companions personalities and I wouldn’t want to change them with my choices.
The Jedi Consular does get some interesting companions though.
First, there’s Qyzen. He’s a bit kill-happy, but that’s part of his culture. I think for me, if there’s one thing I regret with him, is maybe during his companion quest where you have the option to make peace or kill the Wookie. I tried to make peace and would’ve liked to arrest the guy, but anything other than kill made Qyzen lose 160 points. Despite being my first companion, he was one of the last I got up to 10,000. This Herald is a bit too peaceful, I suppose. His story is pretty interesting as you get to learn more about his culture and kind of get him to less be solo-loner man which is neat. Lots of character development for him.
After him, you receive Tharan who is a flirty-ladie’s man and also a genius. Who may or may not be dating a hologram named Holiday. His story also has some neat character development among other things and the end even shows he may not be as selfish as you’d expect, and despite how he is, he’ll be there for a friend. Despite his flirting though, he is not actually romanceable. If you do try and go that route, there is a point where he pretty much says you’re his muse/inspiration and you can sleep with him. If you choose yes, you are told the next day things have to end as Holiday is shocking his bed. If you choose no, however, he actually gets quite sad and says how he thought the two of you had something special. After that, Holiday shocks his bed regardless (not sure if that’s a glitch or not), but yeah. Sadly, that’s about all you can do with Tharan.
The third companion you get is Zenith, who is also a bit kill-happy. He’s essentially been full-blown assassin due to what the Imperials did to his home. His story involves politics after being screwed over by the guy you help get elected (Essentially, he promised Zenith a spot and then said no. I do understand why–Zenith is more than a bit overly scarred from the incident and bias due to it as well). It’s very black and white with him talking about people he worked with and then finding out some darker secrets of it. It’s not horrible, but it’s a bit saddening and kind of just drops off. But I will say he arrests people who could’ve been followers and I believe he successfully becomes a political man…somehow. But yes, due to what he had to deal with, he’s ruthless and just loves killing everything.
Your fourth companion is Lieutenant Iresso. Who is also probably my least favorite. He is the romanceable companion for the consular and 2 conversations after you get him on your ship, he hits on you quite hard. If you tell if you’re uncomfortable with his ship analogies, he says how he’ll just have to watch from afar. So he’ll be stalking you for the rest of your travels. Have fun. His story is also pretty sucky. You find out he has this imperial data cube in his head and doesn’t remember a week of his life, his friend went insane, and it’s why he won’t get promoted and is constantly moved around. You learn this, you learn who did it…and that’s it. You don’t try to get him a promotion, you don’t try to see if you can remove it, you do pretty much nothing. And his military-ness also makes him very “kill kill kill”.
Your final companion, despite meeting her at the beginning of your second story, is Nadia. She’s a girl who managed to have force powers and becomes your Padawan. Her conversations do not have much of a story (possibly due to her involvement up to you actually getting her as a companion). Her mourning is barely there and most of it is just her training her powers. Just casual conversation rather than much of anything.
But yes, I think it’d be interesting to do more. Though, preferably, I wish you could meet all the companions (of other classes and stuff too) and actually decide who you want. I miss having my ship full with everyone during my story. That was cool 🙁
But yes, my favorite companions:
Qyzen (Jedi Consular)
Tharan (Jedi Consular)
Nadia (Jedi Consular)
M1 4X (Trooper)
T7-01 (Jedi Knight)
Mako (Bounty Hunter)
Torian Cadera (Bounty Hunter)
Blizz (Bounty Hunter)
Vette (Sith Warrior)
Ashara Zavros (Sith Inquisitor)
I also heard good things about Elara (Trooper) and Risha (Smuggler), but I’d have to get a better idea of them besides clips on Youtube.
