Clarification on Faithful Companion Talent

Hey Modiphus,

The tooltip said to ask FAQ questions here so I’ll go right ahead:

While making a character, I got curious about the Faithful Companions trait under Animal Handling.

I ran a playtest of the game with a dog as a companion, but they were quickly killed by an unlucky arrow wound. My question is as follows:

a. Once your animal companion has been killed, can you nominated a new one or do you lose all benefits from faithful companion.
b. Does nominating a companion allow them any special benefits for their survival, as most animals are minion rank and easily killed.

I’m mostly gauging whether I should take this trait again or focus on Jhebbal Sag / Charge instead.
