Those are from the House Coffers and have absolutely nothing to do with the VIP status.
If you look at the coffers in the Clubhouse, Heavy Water reduced them to only require 1,000,000 as opposed to the 10,000,000 that the coffers require in the personal space. Talk to Barlow and you'll see that the community has met 4 / 5 coffer requirements in the Clubhouse. Since House Grimoult is only at 635,000 it hasn't unlocked yet. They don't unlock in the personal space because those still require 10 million each.
thank you for the update!
Well, this thread exploded overnight! Sorry for the delay but I would like to clear things up.
The Clubhouse's Barlow got word that the Coffer goals were too high and he reduced them. His twin, Barlow, at the personal apartment is a little slow and hasn't reduced the goals to 1,000,000. So those guard companions are indeed for the Coffers.
The VIP companion has been lost in the ether. We have no idea why it is missing and we are looking into it. We apologize for getting your hopes up again just to have them dashed. We hope you enjoy the guard companions in the interim!
