Old Scratch?

So I was looking through my Companion pages and realized that all of them are some sort of animal or mythical creature... Except for one...

Old Scratch could be classified as a mythical creature, because he is undead, but what was he before he became undead...? A human?

I am just wondering what doors this could open for the future. Maybe more human companions?

I don't know just some food for thought I guess.

Scratch isn't the only skeleton that looks sort of human out there. I've always wondered what those guys looked like when they were alive. Their structure is too short and broad to support a body like the one's our pirates have. I'm content to think that they are the remains of some sort of lost tribe that fooled with black magic. Their curse extended to beyond the grave.

Am I weird for really not liking the idea of human companions? I mean, being followed around by another person just seems odd to me. I doubt it'll happen, due to the fact that the only humans are in the starting areas and occasionally in other random places.

I've never been keen on the idea of human companions either. It does seem weird to have another person following you around like a drone. If you want to play with other people, find your friends and go have an adventure together! So yeah, I totally agree with you.

Yay, I'm not weird! Well... not in this area, I suppose.

In some previous thread somewhere I noted that the overwhelming number of humans we meet are reanimated dead ones... and speculated this fact could account for the large number of orphan pirate kids that are running around everywhere.

Don't forget that some of us have undead Mike. He seems to have been human.
