Available companions[edit | edit source]
The Outsider - A scripted event occurs in the streets of Arkham early in the game that allows the player to recruit him. A female player character can romance him.
The Nameless Soldier - A encounter on the worldmap a bit later into the game that allows the player to recruit him.
Sonia Green Carter - You meet her in Arkham - French Hill - far right side of the map. She will ask about her husband Randolph Carter. Next time your hero goes to sleep - he will meet Randolph Carter in his dreams. Sophia will be available for recruitment in the tavern. Just talk to her and when she asks about how her husband looks - choose the option which describes a man with a broad jaw. Sonia is a great addition, because of her SCIENCE and INVESTIGATION skills. She can also do very well in melee, because of her talents which buff her melee defense. Being a horror writer, she's near immune to sanity damage.
Dog - You will start with your loyal dog if you choose the explorer career path.
Butler - You will start with your loyal servant if you choose the noble career path.
