Footpad, because awesome. Unless you give him the silly hat.
Deacon because on the character select screen in the beta, he always did an epic sword-twirling animation that reminds people of me.
Smuggles because Kitty loves her and I have AC-themed giant robots and planes using her colour scheme in other games with AC as their abbreviations.
Dama Rossa, Trickster and Corsair because they're hot.
