    Dogmeat's an Italian cheif of state? – DCShannon Nov 14 '15 at 2:05
  • One of those "humans" is not. Might add the actual race in a spoiler tag. – DCShannon Jan 11 '17 at 23:21

I think the best companion in the game is the Romance Paladin Danse. He is the strongest companion in Fallout 4.

General Profile

Gender: Male

Race: Human/Synth

Faction: The Brotherhood of Steel | Rank: Paladin

Main Personality Traits: Devoted, Loyal, Aggressive, Righteous, Fearless

Hair Color: Black | Eye Color: Light Brown

Companion Perk: Know Your Enemy (20% more damage against irradiated ghouls, mutated humanoids and androids)

Here is the complete guide to getting this companion. http://www.reviewpost.net/?p=490

    What about the rest of the companions? This is only one of many. – Timmy Jim Jan 11 '17 at 18:45

    There are a couple of problems with your answer. 1. It is opinionated and only mentions a single companion. No one asked for a recommendation on who was the best companion. 2. It doesn't say how to get Paladin Danse in the answer, it provides a link to an external site that tells how to get him. – Vemonus Jan 11 '17 at 18:45
