Friday DE: Pokemon, daemons, and furies, oh my

Fiction is filled with the companion trope, from Pokemon, to Elfquest, to Codex Alera, to Pern. If you character were given the choice, would they accept a companion? I am thinking less, "they would chose X-type companion" (although feel free to give us this) and more would they chose the relationship? Would they chose one that's more pet like, i.e. an emotional put pretty normal bond, or would they want a more intimate bound, such as telepathic dragons or spirits that are tied to their souls?

As ever, feel free to give as short or long an answer as you'd like, as well as take whatever tangents this topic inspires.

I kind of like the idea of Emcee with an animal familiar, or some kind of intelligent, sentient, perhaps telepathic pet. One that's able to communicate, in any case. Given the choice, he'd accept it. But nothing fancy or flashy, preferably a mouse or a rat that he could carry around in his pocket. A small, unobtrusive thing would be useful in eavesdropping or alerting him to danger.

And I am tied to the notion that Floki would want a pet ferret. A telepathic pet ferret.
