|The Shifty Mongoose|

I like Summoners. Not because they can send Eidolons to pounce with upwards of three natural attacks without risking their own HP, but because, right out of the starting gates, they get a best friend forever whose very being doesn't even have to make any sense!
I haven't made one up yet, but when I do, the eidolon will have five eyes in different places, tails where its ears should be, cup-holder epaulettes, and other wacky features.
The first time he (she?) summons it in-game will canonically be the first time it has ever been summoned, at which point I will show everyone my illustration of it.
I'll have to make sure that I'd be the Designated Comic Relief Guy in the group first, and maybe as they level up, they'll come to terms with each other and figure out ways to compromise.
I won't even make the summoner a gnome.
