A moment of silence for Dupre.
I vote for Iolo! In U7 who's the first and most loyal companion you meet? He recognizes you and comes to your aid after your long absence. What a guy!
Dupre was always a great asset in combat..but the most memorable companion is Iolo, hands down.
He's in a better place?
I pick Iolo, because of the intro to Ultima VI!
You're about to be sacrificed on an altar with a gargoyle priest ready to plunge a dagger into your heart.. when zip!
Iolo's crossbow bolt meets its mark saving your life!
That's a true friend!
@Time Lord: She's mentioned here at the Ultima wiki. Sherry Hunter is also listed in the Ultima 6 credits in the game manual as well.
RG had a habit of putting former friends, male and female, into the games as Companions.
Koss from Guild Wars....he was the best of all time.
Now now, if we're talking non-Ultima, it's gotta be Minsc! "Go for the eyes, Boo!"
That's why I've follow you for years Houston
Because Houston Dragon knows everything
No doctor who companions
Although you and I both know it was Tegan or Turlough. Or maybe Nyssa.
Nobody voted for Katrina. Not. One. Damn. Person.
It's sad. But shepherds were straight up terrible. The worst armor and weapons plus no magic. It made me want to play one in SotA, just for the added challenge.
Hah, poor Katrina. In Ultima 4, she was notability the worst companion to have, because her stats meant she died horribly and quite often. She also was limited to the most basic armor, couldn't use hardly any weapons, and oh yeah, she's considered a MELEE character. She was less of a glass cannon, as more of a glass punching bag.
She did get a little better in later games, but was always relegated to third-string Companionship if it came time to pick party members. And in UV: Lazarus, they did a fantastic portrait for her character, so there's that too.
Hold on, she was level 5 when you got her in Ultima V ! That was pretty good, especially if you went to NM straight off on a moon gate jaunt.
And in non-canon, she was a total tank in UV:Lazarus. And she had a hot picture too.
I like Katrina a lot, especially in U6. I always thought that the "humble" path was one they should have fleshed out more. There's a lot of lore there to play with in making shepherds a character class that isn't just for people that want to die a lot.
Clearly Triolo is the best. Cuz he is like three Iolo's in one... Or something... I got nothing.
I like Katrina.. if the question were, "who would you want to be YOUR companion.. I'd have voted her.
Wait, what are we talking about?
beat you to that joke!
