More Sidekicks for Planet Psychon

Quick sidekicks for Planet Psychon
The last post on this was more for small pets verging on biological magitech artifacts. These are more traditional sidekicks for adventurers and could be rolled by a beginner or used to generate adventurers or inhabitants of some kind of bar. The first tables are for the kit or the sidekick then some example skill proficiency sets for zero level flunkies then the species. I have had a player ask about being a robot so I might develop rules or use Anomalous Subsurface Environment ones. Other pets and mounts good idea to do too.

Zero level follower characters are of two types:
Man at arms 1d6 hp with 2 WP and 1 NWP tend to become warriors at 1st level
Expert with 1d4 hp with 1 WP and 2 NWP tend to become non warrior classes at 1st level
