Companion Appearance Customization guide with screenshots of different customizations (Work in Progress).

One of the most talented demolitions experts to ever serve in the Republic military, Tanno Vik is charming, highly skilled and completely amoral. Born to the lawless streets of Nar Shaddaa, Vik is accustomed to putting his own interests first; enlistment was merely a convenient means of escape after betraying one criminal partner too many. But once he got his hands on the most advanced weapons and explosives in the galaxy, he was hooked.

During training, Vik impressed his instructors with his unprecedented speed at locating structural weaknesses in everything from buildings to vehicles, ensuring that he always planted his explosives where they would do the most damage. He was even considered for entry into Special Forces division, but his belligerent attitude and disregard for authority held him back. Criminal accusations were registered against him throughout his short service career, leading to his eventual conviction and discharge.

    He obviously got changed to melee tank later in the game. Before he joins you he runs around with a blaster and when u get him he all of the sudden is dressed in orange and got a sword.

    I guess that was done to “streamline” Tropper companions with other classes companions. Silly, if u ask me… Vik as a Vanguard style companion with a blaster rifle would have been a lot more fitting.
