Today I was browsing YouTube for Pirate videos, and I was checking out the starter companions' and presidio companions' promos. Well, I noticed that Lucky Jack, Birgus Latro, and Gaspard deVole have the same second promotion, and Wing Chun, Egg Shen, and Kan Po have the same first promotions. What is this madness?!

Eagilles: But this... IS.... AQUILAAAAA!

Quiet you! But still... Madness! Why the same? -sips tea-

I asked this in story thread 2, because the case is the same with the magnificent 7 promotions. Blind mew says that they do it to either save time, or if its not in the budget to make three or four separate promotion quests.

They may have the same upgrades, but (from what I know so far) have different quests, classes, specials, clothes, and types of animals... Plus they all look cool. It's interesting to see the different versions of an almost equal companion.
(BTW it's also pretty hard [yet awesome] to come up with some of these... I've tried and it's hard so nice job by the writers on all the promo quests I have gone through... I'm loving 'em)
So they are similar, but have a different style/personality with each one of them.

I hope that makes sense...

Same basic skills are needed for a firm foundation before specialties can be learned. One wise master can grow many young students into apprentices so they can strive for their separate masterhood?

I think Blind Mew stated something about it being easier to do the same quest but just writing different lines for them. I think he also said something about making/using less areas and something else. I remember seeing it, but I don't remember exactly what he said, but it's something under the lines of this. ^^

Sorry, the idea of Mike acting like meat makes me laugh.
