Top Five Companions

Posted Jun 01, 2010 by Jon Wood

Top Five Companions

This week in his list, MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy counts down his top five companion characters from the Star Wars universe.

#5 Greedo the Elder

The Greedo most people know is probably best known for his death at the hands of Han Solo in Chalmun's Cantina. But Greedo the Elder was a nearly unrivaled bounty hunter. His son wasn't quite the Rodian the Elder was, but the original Greedo's triumphs and legend are part of today's larger Star Wars expanded universe. I suppose it's kind of obscure and there are probably several dozen other more detailed choices for companion, but Greedo the Elder's tale of shirking his people's gladiatorial traditions in pursuit of a more profound life and existence is a pretty inspiring one. And while he died a sad death at the hands of his rival, Navik the Red, Greedo lived a righteous and honest life hunting criminals and outlaws. He was an underdog and paragon for his people to change their ways. He could almost have a movie of his own, if it weren't for those bug-eyes that kept him from Hollywood beauty.
