Easy Way - Linking your account
When you first start up the game, you'll be asked to link your account to an Arc Games account. You can then push a button to bring up Internet Explorer straight to this site. Once you make an account or log in to your current one, you'll just have to push the link button.

Once in game, work through the tutorial. When you get to town, hold cn_LB and hit cn_up to bring up the map (or pause, go to Quests, and choose Local Map). Look for the picture of a gift box. It's in the NorthWest corner of the map. Go to this merchant and then use the triggers to scroll to 'Promo'.
Renegade Illusionist should be available for use.

Next, go to your inventory (hold cn_LB and hit cn_left or pause game). He will be in your Items bag. Select him and choose 'Bind'. You will have to enter a name for him. Once you have done this the achievement will unlock.

Other Route
If you don't want to do this, you can earn a companion by leveling up. Once you hit 16 (which I would suggest you do through questing), you will receive a quest to earn a companion. This quest will be given by General Knox or by selecting 'Special Quests' from the pause menu when you hit 16. This quest will give you a tutorial on companions so it's nice to do this even if you use the above guide. At the end of this quest you get a choice of 4 companions, then you just bind it like above.
