How about Lieutenant Springer? The thought just popped into my mind. I don't really know too much about him.

How about a Gallery featuring our mother, Pirate Jenny? Or if that may cause spoilers, I would love to see Bob Carrington & Captain Hande in a Gallery.

Third of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Argos.

Forth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Nurse Quinn.

Fifth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Nanu Nanu.

Sixth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah.

Seventh of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Black Angus.

Eighth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Decius Duelmaster.

Ninth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Doctor Noh.

Tenth of all, I would like to see a Rogue's Gallery for Lost Ranger.

Just so you know, space12350 and anecorbie, the listed options aren't technically Companions. However, they're great choices!

Rogues Gallery has covered many NPCs, among them the trainers, Captain Avery & Blind Mew. I don't see why we can't learn more about our favorite NPCs just because they aren't companions.

I'm kind of curious about the Crown Shop "equivalent" companions to our origin story ones -- Lucy Sterling, et al are very popular -- does Lucy have a similar story to Sarah's? Was Uga Buga following in Mormo's footsteps? Sergeant Shepherd is the only one we really meet in the game.

I know that, but Falmea specified Companions. I love the idea of NPCs being in Rogue's Gallery, especially because most Companions are already covered, so I agree, but I thought Falmea actually said Companions. My apologies if she didn't!

Hmm... Fan is certainly my favorite Companion also (aside from Sarah Steele, of course ), but I thought I recalled seeing her in Falmea's list of Companions they had already done?

I did, actually, but I don't see any reason we shouldn't open it up a bit wider. Let's expand this to ANYONE in the Pirate101 Spiral! Who would you like to know more about?

My take: Death. What's his deal anyway? How many other people get the best of him on a daily basis when he's simply trying to do his job?

A long time ago, Blind Mew kind of hinted at the inspiration for Death's character. I'd really love to hear what movie that was.

The most obvious character who never actually appears in the Spiral is Wyatt Chirp!

Zeke: he travels, he gives us nice rewards, he is a friend of wizards even, and cooks a mean pot of chili, but what is his history?

Back when Froggo Villa's voice was a bit higher pitched, before KI changed the voice of this companion, there weren't as many female companions. I had a theory that Froggo was a girl mander in disguise, who ran away and became a bandit, which would have made a great crew quest with a big reveal and new promotion appearance. Maybe this was not to be, but I'd like to know more about this member of our crew. And where are all the girl manders anyway? There must be some, somewhere.

Then I would have to say Skinny Pete! Why does he know so much about the old pirate tales?

If not him, then maybe Mickey Dugan. Yeah, he's the Town Crier, but everyone has at least some backstory!

Then what I want to know is this: who is Death's "shrink"? Are there psychologists in the Spiral?

Lately, KI has been covering bundle companions ( BTW, you forgot the cutthroat shark from the cutthroat bundle .)
Well, how about the PACK companions? What's their backstories? ( all 15 of them, ok? )
