Name: Chanel le Cinq
Species: Skunk
Class: Swashbuckler
Weapon: Backpack Flamethrower/Gas Emitter
Appearance: Skunk with a gas mask / hazardous material warnings on gear... always surrounded by a lingering cloud.
Speech: French accent? - but of course!

Typical Swashbuckler abilities but with an emphasis on poisons and the capacity to hamper the vision, damage potential and movement of enemies.

Special Ability: Osmophobia (Fear of Smells or Odors)
5% chance each round (based on Will) to cause adjacent enemies to panic and flee* for that round.
*Fleeing would simply be aborting any attack and moving away from Chanel as far as possible. Cheap Shot, Repel Boarders or Flanking action against the fleeing enemy will act as Hold the Line and stop the enemy's movement but they will not counter-attack.

Name: Stormzilla
Species: Stormzilla
Pirate Species: Hatchling | 1st Promo - Juvenile | 2nd Promo - Thunder Lizard
Pirate Class: Depends on the Pirate's Class (Swash if Swash, Musk if Musk, etc.)
How To Get: Finish the Quest "Go, go, Stormzilla!"
Weapons of Choice: If Melee Class - Tail Whip or Thunder Stomp / If Ranged - Summon Egg or Storm Breath
Starts at Level: One Level Higher than Pirate's Level

Hatched from the last surviving egg of Stormzilla fused with some random card laying around, when he hatches, he imprints on you and follows you around, becoming your companion. Slow to develop, Stormzilla is not one to be brought into battle until he is of sufficient level.

Skins: At Hatchling, he has an inverted color palette of an adult Stormzilla. At Juvenile he has some wood armor from spare tavern pieces. At Thunder Lizard he's at his normal palette with silver armor from pieces in Avernus.
Talents / Powers Available From Start: At his adorable and cute version of his bigger counterpart, he gets one guaranteed epic hit, and riposte if he's a melee class, but burst fire / mojo echo if he's ranged.
Talents / Powers Granted from Promotions: When he grows up a little to become a Juvenile Stormzilla, his epic hit transforms into a guaranteed mega hit and he gets a new power: Create Nest, plus one epic talent. Once he finally matures, his mega hit turns into a guaranteed super hit and he gets two of a new power: Summon Egg plus two epic talents.

Talent Pool

Riposte 2 / 3
Repel Boarders 1 / 2
Relentless 1 / 2
Flanking 1 / 2

Return Fire 1 / 2 / 3
Double Tap 1 / 2
Quick Adjust 1 / 2
Overwatch 1 / 2

Mojo Echo 1 / 2
Mojo Rising 1
Retribution 1
Intuition 1

Powers: Create Nest - An 3x3 area of tiles will become a 'nesting ground'. Any character in the grounds will heal up a small amount of HP; it lasts 2 rounds. Summon Egg - Creates Egg that hatches a Level 50 Hatchling. Note that at Thunder Lizard, you have two of these.

Name: Rhailos
Species: Draconian
Pirate Species: Draconian Renegade - Draconian Challenger - Draconian Warlord
Pirate Class: Buccaneer
How To Get: Complete a quest in Dragonspyre
Weapons of Choice: Broadsword and Buckler - Claymore and Spiked Buckler - Greatsword and a huge, reinforced, spiked shield.
Starts At Level: Two levels higher than Pirate's level

After the downfall of Malistaire, the Terrorwings reformed, creating a new tyrannical society. Rhailos is the leader of a resistance, and will stop at nothing to free his people. He believes you can help him. He joins as a hesitant ally, at first, but soon grows to trust you.

Appearance: His scales will always be the same color as your first color for your flag. His clothing will match the second color. In his default Pirate Species - Draconian Renegade - he has simple leather armor, with some pieces of scrap metal over one shoulder, attached to one leg, and as a chestplate. After his first promotion, he will have a complete set of armor, made of an unspecified metal. After his second promotion, he will be dressed in shiny, reinforced, virtually indestructible armor.

Talents and Powers: He begins with Vicious Charge, Hold the Line 1 and Vengeance Strike 1. He can train 7 talents: Tough, Pirate, Armored, Accurate, Rough, Lucky, and Strong. He can train 6 Epics: Vengeance Strike, Hold the Line, Repel Boarders, Relentless, First Strike, and Leviathan's Call. When first received, he can train two epics, in addition to the Epics he already had. Upon completing his first promotion, he can train two epics. Upon completing his second promotion, he gains Highland Charge, and can train one epic.

It occurs to me now I may have made him a tad bit overpowered, but I'm not entirely sure.

Name: Deadeye Deidre
Species: Mouse
Pirate Species: Mouse Fencer
Pirate Class: Swashbuckler
How to get: complete the quest "The Golden Flask"
Weapon/Weapon's of choice: Dual swords

Ok, so we all know the side quest "The Golden Flask" given by Rosey Harriot in Remmington's Steel, right? well, I got to thinking, what if, after you defeat Deadeye Deidre, and return the flask to Rosey, Deadeye Deidre sees the error of her ways and decides to join your crew? I thought to myself, "That would be an interesting twist to the quest, I should pitch that on the forum!" So here it is.

Dark Wolf Everhart, lvl 52
Fiery Wolf Holystone, lvl 12

Lvl 6: Basic (Mouse Fencer)
Lvl 16: Mouse Swashbuckler
Lvl 40: Mouse Corsair
okay, quick revision to the quest name and a mechanic in the quest. It's not "The Golden Flask," it's actually "A Flask Of Pure Gold." Also, once you defeat Deidre, you take her aboard your "ship" (cause I'm pretty sure everyone only has a raft at this point) to make her apologize directly for thieving the Golden Flask, and upon completion of "A Flask of Pure Gold," Deadeye Deidre joins your crew.

Dark Wolf Everhart, lvl 55
Fiery Wolf Holystone, lvl 15
Loyal Wolf Everhart, lvl 4

another idea for another Mouse Fencer companion! (as if we didnt have enough of those already, right?)

Name: Little Nelly Nickelby
Species: Mouse
Pirate Species: Mouse Fencer
Pirate Class: Swashbuckler
How to get: Pay 1,000 gold to recruit her in Flotsam after completing the Rat Pack quests
Weapon/Weapons of choice: Dual swords

Okay, if you're a completionist like me, you try to do all the side quests, and one of those side quest questlines deals with the Rat Pack. During this questline, you talk to Little Nelly Nickelby in Flotsam, where she directs you to their hideout in the Ancient Tunnels, where they've taken her partner, Benji, captive. Do that, complete the quest series, which I think talking to the Frogfather afterwards is the final objective, and go back to Flotsam. She will have a new "!" over her head, where she will ask for a payment of 1,000 gold as salary and join your crew.

I don't know about anyone else but I personally think it'd be cool to have a companion that starts off at a certain class and then when it promotes you could chose out of five quest lines (from the class teachers) and then when you finish he'd get the class and different talents and epics depending on what teacher you chose to do the quest for. I have an idea for a companion that would fit kinda well for this, might post a bit on it some time soon.

What I personally would love to see for swashbucklers is more undead and shady companions. I know many bucklers who like more of the assassin, Froggo Villa style of swashbuckling. I think we should get more companions with dark pasts, like Old Scratch. One of my ideas for a companion would be something similar to a lost soul from Wiz101 that has died and forgotten who it was. This could be received maybe from an Aquila or Mickey Dugan side quest. I just get a bit tired of El Toro ruining my dark and unseen assassin vibe sometimes. Please consider this KI!

How to obtain: At level 74 Catbeard will give you the quest "A refill of pickled herring". Basically, this quest just gives gold and options for more companions. One quest is The Rebel. It is about a penguin warrior who turned into to a pangwang rebel. So you track this penguin to his fort, a crashed armada ship fused with a polaris ship.
So you get in and fight Mr. Pangwang. SURPRISE! He is 7 levels higher then you, and has 2 bombs, 2 traps, 3 snipes, and true grit 2/ burst fire 3/ and quick draw 3. Your meant to lose, and your taken to a jail sell with no gear if you lose. you then got to stealth through the fortress releasing 4 companions, Bonnie, Ratbeard, Catbeard, Contessa, and Toro. Once you do it, your employer, a penguin "warrior" comes in with a weapon and tells you the truth
He tricked you into opening up the defenses so he can sneak in and kill Mr. Pangwang. You stand up and try to stop him, and he almost kills you, but then Mr. Pangwang comes in, now as a guest fighting with you, with a ton of other pangwangs. He also has a group revive now. After the fight, blah blah blah, he joins your crew.

Epics/Critical: Same as when you fought him/ with him, and you can upgrade/ chose ONE epic.

Build: He is pure out offense but a trapper. His epics also give him the ability to counter Musketeers and Witch, so he owns the far range field.

Well, I'm glad you asked :)

Her name would be: Luna
She would be a: Astral Siren
Her class would be: Witchdoctor
You would get her from the main quest
She prefers to use the power of the stars to control her magic to help the captain (you)

Luna's home world, Celestia, was over taken by pirates, resistant to her voice. Not knowing what to do, she swam off, hoping to find someone of help. Over her journey her beautiful blue hair got shorter and shorter until it was past her shoulders, she often had it in a lose and graceful ponytail with a small starfish in it, her tail was a gradient of blue to white, with a star on the side, her eyes were a lovely purple, with stars in them. She swam and swam, trying to find a captain, until she reached (Your class teacher.) She put a spell on so she could hover over ground to travel places, she depended on magic from the stars to help her. Thats when she met you. You took her in. Luna always carried around a rather small conch shell, and when asked about it, she would deny to talk about it, but she alway seemed so protective of it. This mermaid was rather reluctant to join your crew, fearing you would be a pirate that raided her home, but she learned to trust you. She holds a clue to who your father was, for he was a prisoner on the ship, trying to fight off the evil pirates to attempt to save the sirens.
In her first promotion she talks about a pearl necklace she always had around her neck. It was a lovely necklace with a star in the middle, that started glowing and heating up at random times. Little does she know this is a warning for great danger ahead..
