I’ve been thinking: All animal companions in game belong to Trappers. Maggie has Daisy (who actively sniffs out the monster). Crow has Gobi (who can fly over a large area and scan the ground). Daisy is like a second medic as she can sneakily revive people.
In war, they often have ‘soldier dogs.’ Police canines are very popular as well. In many areas, dogs act as rescuers!
So why not give Medic a ‘Medic Companion.’ Perhaps it could be another trapjaw that wears medic garb and can heal people (Ex: run over to an injured player and deploy a heal burst slightly weaker than the medic’s). Perhaps it could be another batray that can swoop down and revive people. Or maybe you can have a Blitz leopard that knocks enemies off of pounced players, including the monster. I mean, Blitz leopards are pack animals, right?
Or perhaps Assault deserves an animal companion. I mean, we’ve already established that Hyde can strap a flamethrower on Daisy. So perhaps having a predatory/damaging animal (Trapjaw, blitz leopard, mammoth bird) that can run into battle could be nice as well. You know how much the fandom would absolutely love a pet Mammoth bird! Especially the mosnter as the mammoth bird would have to be downed at the very least twice to die outright without Laz on the team. ;D
How about a support animal that can offer shields? Like a Reaver or Strider that runs over to a specific player and casts a shield.
(Here’s some pictures I drew of it. Please excuse the quality. I drew it on the Note Drawing Pad or whatever it’s called on the phone.)
Basically, they’re wearing a standard ‘Search and Rescue’ dog vest.
That isn’t a rocket launcher on the STrider’s back. It’s a shield projector.
They’re wearing plated armor because I’m not good at drawing armor.
EDIT: I just realized that the trapjaw only has 3 legs. He… uh… lost it in a monster fight… yeah.
