i think it would be pretty cool.... kinda like how our pirate have stars fly around their heads if they got stunned... have it be a parrot... like... how we put on tattoos... lets put on a parrot with like.. the flying parrot being 25,000 gold, and the parrot for your shoulder be 50,000 gold... lol... idk
Adopt a parrot would be good. We can get a parrot from a pet store, then a parrot would have abilities (almost like having another weapon). The parrot - or any pet, really - can be trained to have levels; just sits there on the shoulder, flies around following us, or sends a message to some friends, or even steals stuff from enemies/pokes/flaps wings on enemies. Just annoys enemies. Then the higher the parrot level is, the more attributes it can get; customized outfit , a hat, eye patch, or even a goatie!
Mine would have an eye patch and hat of course, and a sling to carry bullets for me. Like that ----------> :arrrrr: except it's a parrot.
