Canderous joins your party when he takes you to Davik's Estate from Javyar's cantina in the Lower City of Taris. Once you arrive there, you can speak to him:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
You have been joined by Canderous Ordo, a skilled Mandalorian mercenary. You know little about him, however.

If you don't speak to Canderous when he's in your party, then you may be prompted to do so:

KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: [Despite helping you on Taris, Canderous continues to be something of a mystery to you. It might be a good idea to try and get to know him better.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Speak to Canderous.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Don't speak to him.]
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Yeah? What do you want? KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: [You decide to ignore Canderous and continue on with your quest for now, though it might be a good idea to speak with him later.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if you had any interesting stories.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous has told you a little bit about himself. He told of the great wars and battles his people has fought before, and how he had been reduced to serving Davik on a backwater world. He seemed to regret mentioning anything. Perhaps you should speak to him about this again later.

Level ups[edit]

Level ups unlock further dialogs once previous dialogs have been completed: six dialogs can be unlocked in this way, although the first four become unavailable once you acquire a fourth Star Map and leave that world. However, once you've escaped the Leviathan, the last two level-up dialogs are unlocked even if the first four weren't.

Although all these dialogs can be unlocked even before escaping Taris, and Jagi's Challenge can be activated before leaving Dantooine, to do this you need to level up six times after Canderous joins your party (so a level 2 character would have to be able to level up to 8, a level 8 to 14 and a level 14 to 20): this is only necessary if Tatooine's Star Map isn't the last you acquire and you want to minimize backtracking (although this is unavoidable if you want to complete the Genoharadan quests, since these require you to return to Tatooine as well).

First[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if you had any more war stories.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: I was one of the best youth warriors in clan Ordo in my time. No one before me had mastered the power of our Basilisk war droids as quickly as I had. Except Mandalore himself of course. In those days we were sweeping across the Outer Rim. Destroying all who fought us. Young Mandalores would prove themselves in real combat with unknown opponents above a thousand worlds. Each brought back the story of his achievements.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous told you about what's it like to drop through the atmosphere in one of the Mandalorian's Basilisk war droids. From what he said, they must have been fearsome weapons. He would probably tell you more stories if you talked to him later.

Second[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if you had any more war stories.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: You want another story, eh? You want to hear about some other world getting wasted? Heh, I knew you were the type. Your stagnant Republic has never seen some of the strange creatures and races we fought on the Outer Rim in those years. Heh, and you never will now.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
You have heard Canderous' tale of his encounter in an asteroid field on the Outer Rim, but do not know what to make of it. Maybe talking to him further will make things more clear.

Third[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if you had any more war stories.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: I don't have as many strange stories like the last one I told you, but I do have a couple about me and the stuff I've done. In one battle above the world of Althir, my unit managed to defeat a force of Althiri ten times our own size. That battle gained me command of an entire sub-sect of my clan.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous told you about the honors he won leading a unit in the battle over Althir. It seems that he was quite the warrior back then. You could probably hear more if you asked him again later.

Fourth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if you had any more war stories.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Hm… I think I'll tell you a bit about the recent war we had with the Republic. That might be more familiar to you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
You've heard from Canderous how the Mandalorians started their war on the Republic and the success they had at the beginning. If you talked to him later, he might tell you how the tide turned later on.

Leviathan[edit]

Once you've acquired a fourth Star Map, left that world and subsequently been captured by and escaped from the Leviathan, the previous dialogs become unavailable but the following are now unlocked, without needing to level up: you can simply speak to Canderous twice to allow Jagi's Challenge to be activated.

Fifth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me more about the Mandalorian Wars.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: We fought against the Republic forces for some time, over the course of many battles.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous described the end of the Mandalorian Wars to you. He seemed to admire Revan greatly. Maybe you can ask him about this later.

Sixth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me more about the Mandalorian Wars.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: The war we had with the Republic was supposed to be the most glorious battle of our history, but… it was a very costly one. I guess we didn't think of how much we could lose in it.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous told how Revan and his forces destroyed the Mandalorians' weaponry and exiled them, scattering them across the Outer Rim. He thinks that now, with you, he might find worthy opponents once again. You might try to talk to him more later.

Jagi's Challenge[edit]

After escaping Taris and completing the dialog unlocked by a Sixth level up or escaping the Leviathan, if Canderous is in your party then a man named Jagi may approach and speak to you in one of the following locations:

Dantooine Tatooine Kashyyyk Manaan Korriban
Jedi Enclave No Czerka Landing Port Docking Bay Dreshdae
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jagi's Challenge
Canderous was approached by a man who had fought under him a long time ago. A man named Jagi.

Jagi claims that Canderous had abandoned and betrayed his own men and seeks vengeance. He has called Canderous to duel with him in the Dune Seas of Tatooine or be forever outcast in the eyes of his fellow Mandalorians.
Canderous seems eager to meet this challenge.

If you speak to Canderous again before meeting Jagi's Challenge in the Dune Sea on Tatooine:

KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: I've been given a challenge I can't ignore. We've got to go to the dune seas of Tatooine so I can find Jagi and kill him for his insult to me!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What happened out there? Why is Jagi so mad at you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can we talk about this? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. We should get going then.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: This is between me and Jagi. You don't have to get involved. If you're lucky, he might spill something before I spread him in a paste over the dunes. KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: The sooner we get to Tatooine the better.

Experience is received for meeting the challenge (at least 1800 XP if you can be highly persuasive). If you speak to him after doing so:

KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: I... I think this has affected me in ways that I didn't anticipate... I think I'll need time to sort things out. Thanks for what you did, whatever your intentions might have been. I just need... time.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Canderous
Canderous was affected oddly by his encounter with Jagi. He probably needs time to think about it and what it will mean for him.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Yeah? What do you want?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What are your thoughts now?
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: This thing with Jagi... I... I don't know. Give me some time and I'll be able to sort this out on my own. Is there something else you wanted?

Leviathan[edit]

The following is also unlocked after escaping the Leviathan, but only if Jagi's challenge has been met:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about when you worked for Davik.

Star Forge System[edit]

After completing Jagi's Challenge and the previous dialog, the following is unlocked upon arriving in the Star Forge System:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What are your thoughts now?

Completing this dialog before boarding the Star Forge unlocks another once you've done so, regardless of whether you choose the light or dark side of the Force: Canderous is your man to the end...

Banter[edit]

Canderous may speak to other party members as well when both are in your party:

Commentary[edit]

Even if you don't speak to Canderous directly he may comment during dialog when in your party, although unlocking this may also be conditional on others being added or removed, among other things:
