I don't understand why so many people are looking for a companion to spend the rest of their lives with. Companions are always there by your side...always. Their needs and wants suddenly become your problem, and the stress of fulfilling those needs can be almost as stressful as the repercussions of not filling them.

I mean, I get how companions can help you out, like this time I was caught in a battle with four goblins and my griffin flew off to fetch some healing potions for me. He dropped those potions off and jumped into the fight. Sadly, he fell during battle, but he died fulfilling his purpose as a true companion, serving my needs without needs of his own.

I want a companion that expects nothing from me. Someone who is willing to do their own thing while I do mine. I want a companion that doesn't need me.

I want a griffin.
