There is total of 10 companion quests, 1 for Felix, 2 for Max, 1 for Sam, 2 for Parvati, 2 for Ellie and 2 for Nyoka. There is 2 of these quests that I missed which is The Illustrated Manual and Dont Bite the Sun.

****To be clear though, ALL of these can be missed if you don't agree to help them in their quests. Just agree to help them when they ask and you should be fine. ****

I'll also be adding guides to help anyone who is having trouble finding the quests or just need help in general. These guide links belong to Segment Next and YekBot and do not belong to me.

Thanks to GlitterLicks for this info on Parvati's quest- "I was just on the Obsidian forums and apparently it will say Parvati is dead if you go to talk to another companion while she is climbing a ladder on the ship. This will cause her to infinitely climb (then fall somewhere in space) and then the game will think she’s dead once you try to do another quest with her. I actually saw this happen when I was talking to another companion early on and laughed it off; didn’t realize it was a bug that would “kill” my companion. :(
They said the team is aware and is working on a fix. 

MAKE SURE NOT TO TALK TO COMPANIONS ON THE SHIP WHILE ANOTHER ONE IS CLIMBING A LADDER OR THEY WILL DIE. "

*Felix: Friendship's Due - This is a companion quest, find him at the Groundbreaker, he will be waiting by the ship. He will want you to help with Trask and Harlow. He is waiting for you to leave the ship and talks to you about this mission.

FightingMegaFoo Is there something specific you have to do to trigger Felix's companion quest? I'm like 20 hours in and have yet to get him to talk about it.

Crowned Legacy Here is a good guide on how to start his quest.

SonnieSlim I reccomend just doing the companion quests as soon as you get them. Somehow Parvartis is botched for me. It says she died but shes not dead. Im playing on hard not Supernova.

Do these need to be done in one playthrough?
Posted by SonnieSlim on 31 Oct 19 at 04:41
Crowned Legacy Yeah, as soon as you get them is the best idea. I tried, just didn't realize the dating quest was one until it was to late. As far as I know they have to be done in one playthrough, I'm doing a new one now to do the one I missed. I'll let you know as soon as I do it.
Posted by Crowned Legacy on 31 Oct 19 at 05:08
SonnieSlim Yeah it glitched for me. Frustrsting. Parvarti is clearly not dead
Posted by SonnieSlim on 31 Oct 19 at 05:16
DoctorWho426 I've done all over them, have all the perks and quests completed. No pop. Hoping it'll be a delayed pop, otherwise I'ma have to do another playthrough (which I gotta do anyway. Lol)
Posted by DoctorWho426 on 31 Oct 19 at 08:48
DoctorWho426 PS, MegaFoo, just have Felix in your party for a few hours, kill shit and do quests. Talk to him regularly, see if he wants to talk about his buddy. I put him in my party when I tOuched down on Monarch, and he started talking to me after the agreement at the church
Posted by DoctorWho426 on 31 Oct 19 at 08:51
SonnieSlim That sucks! I hate that lol. Ill keep checking here for updates. Thanks for the effort.

FightingMegaFoo Oh, good. I don't think I've done the church thing on Monarch yet. I've had Felix in my party for most of the game trying to get his quest to start.
Posted by FightingMegaFoo on 31 Oct 19 at 19:56
DoctorWho426 MegaFoo, I just talked to him every 15 min or so for the 8 or so hours I spent doing shit on Monarch. He should ask about a message from his old friend eventually.

Also, Xbox restart popped the cheev.

LEV1NT0FU I can confirm this mission is glitched. I went to buy soap and as soon as I left the ship the mission was botched. I went back to a prior save file (LVL 19) and it seems to work fine now. Other report mixed results. My advice is do this mission ASAP. I wouldn't' wait past LVL 16
Posted by LEV1NT0FU on 01 Nov 19 at 04:24
Crowned Legacy So SonnieSlim, I can confirm that it has to be one playthrough. After doing that lengthy dating quest on a 2nd playthrough, it didn't pop.

p1zD0n7Sh007M3 had a bug with Pavarti's quest where after talking to her on the ship, the objective didn't tick but the quest was completed, so I never got the quest to take Junlei on a date
Posted by p1zD0n7Sh007M3 on 01 Nov 19 at 09:12
Crowned Legacy That's what it did with me. That is how I ended up missing it. It completed it, but when you go back to it and check the quest, it has the box beside the objective blank.
Posted by Crowned Legacy on 01 Nov 19 at 15:25
Inspector Adam This's so annoying! After 30hrs, Felix finally triggered his quest, then immediately it says 'Botched' wtf!!!
Posted by Inspector Adam on 01 Nov 19 at 22:17
Crowned Legacy Yeah, it can be frustrating. I finished the Dont Bite The Sun quest, and went back into Groundbreaker and everyone started attacking me, so it messed me up with getting Ellie's quest done. So I'm going to have to do a 3rd playthrough for this one, but for now I'm going to take a break from it. Some of these companion quests can be annoying.

GlitterLicks The last Parvati mission is bugged for me too. I go to talk to her about the date and it auto-fails me and then says she’s dead. :(

I hope Obsidian fixes this soon.

EDIT: I was just on the Obsidian forums and apparently it will say Parvati is dead if you go to talk to another companion while she is climbing a ladder on the ship. This will cause her to infinitely climb (then fall somewhere in space) and then the game will think she’s dead once you try to do another quest with her. I actually saw this happen when I was talking to another companion early on and laughed it off; didn’t realize it was a bug that would “kill” my companion. :(
They said the team is aware and is working on a fix.

MAKE SURE NOT TO TALK TO COMPANIONS ON THE SHIP WHILE ANOTHER ONE IS CLIMBING A LADDER OR THEY WILL DIE.

Can you add this to your achievement guide so people are aware? It goes for all companions.
Posted by GlitterLicks on 02 Nov 19 at 06:20
Inspector Adam @Crowned Legacy I concur, Obsidian completely dropped the ball on those companion quests. Worst one by far for me is Parvati quest.
Posted by Inspector Adam on 02 Nov 19 at 13:19
Crowned Legacy @GlitterLicks, yes I will. Thank you for finding info on that.
Posted by Crowned Legacy on 02 Nov 19 at 15:17
MushaConvoy Like MegaFightingFoo, I'm still waiting for Felix to decide to start the mission. I initially didn't take him with me as I was working on another character, but took him for most of Byzantium, Monarch and Scylla (where I'm supposed to go after he asks me). Where did anyone else happen to trigger his dialogue? Was it on Groundbreaker, Monarch, somewhere? I've yet to do the radio transmitter, but have done everything else up to that point.

Edit: Not half hour past when I posted this but did Felix want to have a chat. For me, it occurred when I went back to Edgewater to continue Nyoka's companion quest. This is the first time I went back to Edgewater after leaving, possible Felix needs to visit all areas before he asks the favour?

DeadSamurai77 'Drinking Sapphire wine' quest says complete but the objective isn't so I can not get 'Dont bite the sun' quest. Meaning I have to play the entire game again for this achivement. Well done obsidian great game...
Posted by DeadSamurai77 on 03 Nov 19 at 11:42
Kerman7 You should warn people to use Felix as a companion as soon as you have him and not do anything Board friendly until his quest triggers. Otherwise he will get upset and could lock you out of the achievement unless you have enough leadership. I worked out I had to persuade him and was lucky I could use my final 10 points for level 30 and the Nice Hat to get me just enough inspiration. Once he's reassured and not as upset, you can talk to him again and his quest will trigger.
So in short, get him early before working with the Board, or have strong leadership to calm him down.

GlitterLicks To anyone that has completed the game – I would love to move forward in the game and wait on the last quest of Parvati until it's patched but I'm concerned I won't be able to go back to it once I beat the game. Should I be worried about that? Or will be able to revisit her last quest for the date after they patch her false death?
Posted by GlitterLicks on 04 Nov 19 at 16:59
SonnieSlim @DeadSamurai just keep playing the story and talk to Parvarti occassionally. It triggers the next quest after some time has passed.

I Ebon Hawk I Felix's quest hasn't triggered for me and now he is angry with me for siding with the Board. I'm close to the end of the story. Looks like I can't get the achievement on my playthrough.
Posted by I Ebon Hawk I on 05 Nov 19 at 05:12
Allwayz SinCere On playthrough 2.5 and everytime Felix has refused to give his mission after working for the Board, i believe its when you first start working for Sophia. Tried to max out Persuasion and Leadership but no good so far. If after cleaning up all other achievements he's still stubborn then it's going to have to be done as soon as you recruit him and stay off Byzantine until his quest is finished.
Posted by Allwayz SinCere on 06 Nov 19 at 03:54
CertifiedByron Felix gave me the mission after i was working with the board and when i only had 40 leadership. After 'Foundation' and when you go back to Byzantium after receiving the skip the hope mission, he offers it up.
Posted by CertifiedByron on 07 Nov 19 at 11:24
RegnumSolipsi Working for Sophia and Felix copped an attitude about killing the Architect shortly after I had finished the Radio Tower missions (I was a bit of an ass to him as well.) After that I Went to Groundbreaker for Parvarti's date and took Felix off the ship with me to end it, than he confronted me about transporting Hope and I reassured him I was doing what I had to do to save the colony and that I hoped i could count on him. After that, I went back onto Unreliable and spoke to him and the mission was ready to go. This is the only interaction I've had with him since joining my crew.

count023 I finished all the quests, but it hasn't popped, anyone else have that?

DarK NiiTE Does anyone know if obsidian plan to fix the whole Parvarti apparently being dead when she isn’t?
Posted by DarK NiiTE on 11 Nov 19 at 21:50
Xelliz @Dark Niite, I think the impending patch is supposed to resolve this. I can't finish Parvati either cause she "dies" in the middle of the 2nd quest conversation.
Posted by Xelliz on 12 Nov 19 at 21:43
Hahaman4real My journal quest log doesnt say parvati died but simply in the botched quests section with the find parvati fancy clothes unticked but i still went ahead finished the quest and even got the rewards for the quest.. It still didnt unlock the achievement though.. Frustrating

PlusATHEY Ellie quest keeps failing for me every time I accept it? Is there a way around this?
Posted by PlusATHEY on 30 Nov 19 at 10:51
NoHeroes94 I'm currently on Radio Free Monarch, and the only companion quest that hasn't triggered is.... Felix (surprise, surprise). He's been with me for 3 hours in my active party, and I have been to Scylla three times - nothing has triggered, and he hasn't tried to catch my attention leaving the ship as others have (Parvarti, Ellie, Nyoka, etc.).

Aside from getting the Nav Key from Sophia through the Cartographer (which I did peacefully, and he give any dialogue or prompts saying he was pissed or anything), I have strictly sided with Phineas. I am technical "double-agenting" it, but I am only progressing Phineas' quest-line and have that specific quest tracked.

Am I screwed? I haven't finished Monarch yet, and still have 1 more companion quest for Nyoka (currently 22 and intend getting to 30 before the end).

NoHeroes94 Nevermind - Got the quest to pop, whilst doing Radio Free Monarch. After speaking to Hiram I tried speaking to Felix and he finally wanted to give me the quest!
Posted by NoHeroes94 on 02 Jan at 21:50
Dritnul had a similar experience to NoHeroes94 I believe you cannot acquire felix's quest until speaking to the information broker on Monarch
