How many companions are in Sons of the Forest?

There are two different companions in Sons of the Forest, as you can get Kelvin and Virginia to join you on your journey. Once you have them as companions, they can be given different tasks to complete.

This includes gathering resources that you need to survive and battling enemies. We’ll go over everything that you need to know about both characters and how you can get them to be your companions.


Kelvin is a soldier who lost his hearing in the helicopter crash, and you can get him as a companion early at the very start of Sons of the Forest by helping him get up from the wreckage.

Once he’s been recruited, he will follow your orders and will be a major asset in helping you survive on the island. The tasks he completes include collecting items, gathering resources, and building shelters.
