This guide is very important. Please read.
In the game, at at least level 7, you go to a dungeon called The Presidio. There, you meet a person locked up in a cell. He says you're a lot like your parents, and that he sailed with your parents for years. Eventually, the person becomes your companion. This companion is actually chosen at the beginning of the game. How do you get the companion you want? This guide will help you!
In the beginning of the game, Boochbeard and Gandry ask you how your parents died.
The choice you make will determine which Presidio companion you will get later on in the game. (Note: They are all recruited at the same level.)
