Birgus Latro is a great choice for a Presidio companion; he already starts with Vengeance Strike, which is a great Epic to have on Buccaneer companions. Try giving him a second tier of Vengeance Strike, along with a single tier of First Strike; this will make him an effective counter against melee enemies in the fight.

Birgus Latro doesn't necessarily work best on any specific class; he cannot train Relentless nor Flanking, so his actions in battle will correspond very little with that of your character's. To reserve those that can train such Epics for classes that can increase their effectiveness (such as how a Witchdoctor can increase Relentless activation and a Buccaneer can make good use of a companion's Flanking ability), he would be a good choice on a Musketeer. If any melee enemies decide to attack him, they're likely to take more damage than Birgus will!
