This mod adds new human companions that can help you on your journey. Currently available for Forge 1.16.5 and 1.18.1.


  • Knight, archer, and arbalist (crossbow) companions
  • Find them in the wild by their house
  • Give them food to have them join you
  • Will fight for you and can carry items (don't recommend storing valuables in them as they die easily)
  • Make them follow you or patrol an area

Quick Guide

Companions can have different looks. Some are shown here:


They live in a wide variety of biomes in houses like these (plus more!):


  • Give them something edible and they might join you as a companion.
  • Once they join you, you can access their inventory with right click.
  • They have names, but you can rename them with tags.
  • Shift+right click to toggle "sit", making them stay in place and not do anything.
  • Give them armor and weapons and they will automatically equip the best one in their inventory. They can only use the weapon they spawn with. Archers and arbalists do not need arrows.
  • They will follow you around the same way a wolf does. They will attack mobs that hurt you or you hurt, except creepers. They will give a warning if a creeper is nearby and run away.
  • Put food in their inventory and they will eat to heal themselves.
  • Toggle "Hunt" and "Alert" modes in their inventory to control their behavior.
  • Toggle between follow, patrol, and guard states
  • Toggle stationery to keep archers and arbalists standing while shooting
  • You could do "/locate humancompanions:companion_house" to find a house quickly.

Known Issues

  • Rare crash when companion is hit by an arrow. Please report details if seen.
  • While in follow mode, they will permanently despawn if you get too far away from them
  • When a companion dies, sometimes it drops a duplicate of an item or doesn't drop an item in its inventory at all.
  • Archers sometimes shoot at nothing after killing a mob. Use clear button to clear target.
  • When knights break their sword, it will show it's stil equipping. Reload game to fix.
  • Knights sometimes hesitate while attacking.
