If your protagonist had a sidekick or familiar, would you rather they had a feline or a canine? Would the animal be your typical house pet, or something bigger? Or even something modified - smarter, cybernetic, humanoid? If so, what animalistic qualities qould they keep?
What would make them a good/bad sidekick? Would the relationship benefit your protagonist or their sidekick more?
