Why a romanceable assaultron companion? Well mostly because you can't romance ada and you can't romance curie in her robot form. This companion is a robot from beginning to end. Plus I like ladybots.
Her name: K8-RA
Her story: K8-RA was once a companion of another wasteland adventurer (aka a guy like you). She and her compadre went on many adventures together. However... One day, during their trip to boston, that wasteland adventurer was killed and replaced by a synth double. K8-RA witnessed the event and even though she couldn't save him, she did avenge his death. So she heads to boston to find another buddy to travel with. (psst, this is where you come in to help her)
Where to find her: Red Rocket Station (aka the one at the beginning of the game)
When to get her: She'll be there around 10-20 levels.
Likes (I'm not 100% sure what to give her likes and dislikes):
Generally being a good guy
Generally being a douche
As she gets to like you more, she'll tell you a few stories about what she did with her previous companion. Eventually, she'll tell you that all this adventuring reminds her of her glory days and she asks you to do her a favor. She asks you to raid a giant fortress full of enemies because she remembers that as her greatest adventure and she wants to relive that glory. She heard of a good spot and you need to head to a certain spot on the map. It's a big fortress in the glowing sea and it's full of robots, and this area is supposed to be silly. These robots think that humanity should go extinct so robots can be the new dominant race with their leader being a protectron. You and K8-RA kill everything and loot the place and from this point you're able to hook up with K8-RA... or not. Afterwards, she'll give you a perk. What is this perk? The explorer perk! Now you can head out and discover every location in the game without guides, cheating, or searching every inch for every location! I'm not sure whether or not you should need K8-RA as your active companion or not for the perk to stay active.
Her quotes I have for her so far should be attached to this forum.
