Default Tau Commander questions

Okay, curious about somethings:

1) If I take the commander and give him drones, but no bodyguard does he or does he not count as an independent character

2) I went and got Shas'o Rmyr from Forgeworld cause I wanted a unique looking commander, and well he just appealed to me. Part of his equipment is a hw drone controller and his rules state 'may take 1 or 2 drones'

Does he HAVE to take drones since his entry says 'may'?

Edit:
Also, target lock. Exactly how does it work? Or does it work? I was looking at the current rulebook and I can't find anything about target priority tests?

1) He does count as an independant character

2) May take 1 or 2. Not zero. A Drone controller always needs to take drones. If you want, you can use as a counts as commander and use normal commander rules, but the O'Rmyr model.

Dont really mind, I was actually thinking of pairing him with a personal markerlight drone. Expensive at a total of 190 points, but I was thinking could be a very useful unit.

But I'd really like the drone to be able to shoot one thing, and him the other, just havent quite figured out how the target lock works.

The target lock just lets you split the fire from the model with it to a different target.
The target priority test is from the old rules and no longer apply.
