You can speak to Carth the moment you regain control in your Hideout after arriving on Taris. If you don't speak to him when he's in your party, then you may be prompted to do so:

KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: [Something seems to be bothering Carth. Maybe you should speak to him and see if you can get him to open up about it.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Speak to Carth.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Don't speak to him.]
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yes? What's on your mind? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: [You decide to ignore Carth and continue on with your quest for now, though it might be a good idea to speak to him later.]

Speaking to him can unlock the quest for his son, Finding Dustil, once a second Star Map has been acquired. A female character can unlock further dialogs to romance him, which can be completed once a third Star Map has also been acquired. Ideally, these dialogs should be completed before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world, although they only become completely unavailable once Darth Malak has been encountered for the first time, in the hangar of the Leviathan...

Dialog[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to know some more about you, Carth.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
You've discovered that Carth's home world was attacked by the Sith, though he was reluctant to talk about it. Perhaps you can talk more later, after you've gained more experience.

Level ups can unlock further dialogs once previous dialogs have been completed, but so can entering and exiting the Hideout on Taris, and later the Ebon Hawk, and adding Carth to your party (you may also be able to speak to him in the Cockpit inside, but it's quicker to just enter and exit before speaking outside). Acquiring Star Maps is necessary before later dialogs can be unlocked, and the first will be unlocked automatically if all previous dialogs have already been unlocked and completed.

Four further dialogs can now be unlocked.

First[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is this a good time to ask you some more questions?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Although he has agreed to work with you, you've learned that Carth is suspicious and mistrustful of others. There is probably a reason behind his mistrust, but he was reluctant to discuss it.

Second[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to discuss something with you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Despite being impressed with your abilities, Carth is still not willing to fully open up to you. Maybe if you give him some time he'll finally learn to trust you.

Third[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I just want to talk with you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
It's obvious Carth is emotionally scarred by the betrayals of friends and allies at the start of the Sith war. There's probably more to the story, but he doesn't want to discuss it right now.

Fourth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to continue our discussion from before.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
You've learned that Carth's mentor, Saul Karath, was one of the first to defect to the Sith cause. It's no wonder Carth has trust issues, though he seems reluctant to talk about it right now.

This is as far as you can advance this quest before escaping Taris, although it isn't necessary to do so at this point.

First Star Map[edit]

A dialog can be unlocked after acquiring the first Star Map on Dantooine.

Fifth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You've been very quiet lately, you know that?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth feels like he's being left out of the loop where the Jedi Council and Bastila are concerned. Because of the betrayals in his past, he's not reacting to the situation well. Hopefully in time he'll learn to cope with his emotional demons.

Second Star Map[edit]

Two more dialogs can be unlocked after acquiring a second Star Map with a male character, and three with a female.

Sixth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. We didn't end our last discussion very well… KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you want to talk? You got pretty upset the last time we spoke.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So... I'm sorry. Will you accept my apology?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, I won't. Just keep quiet and do what you're told from now on.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't drown me in sentiment, already. *Sigh* Fair enough, let's move on.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

That response completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth has apologized for his previous behavior, and has promised to try not to punish his current companions for the betrayals of people in his past. Whether he can accomplish this remains to be seen.

Seventh[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell my why you want revenge on Saul so badly.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So what? Tough break. You haven't gotten over it yet?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Gotten over it? Look - my family was everything to me. Once they were gone... I had nothing. Hunting Saul became my only purpose.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

That response completes this quest, preventing a female character from romancing Carth but still allowing both male and female to unlock Finding Dustil. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
You've learned that Carth's wife and son were lost when Saul Karath led the Sith fleet against Carth's homeworld, making him swear vengeance on the man he once admired. Whether he will ever get a chance to make good on his oath remains to be seen.

This also completes this quest for a male character.

Eighth[edit]

A female character can continue to romance Carth:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you know about Revan and Malak?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't need you mothering me. Leave me alone from now on.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I didn't mean to... <Sigh> Fine, fine. I suppose I shouldn't stick my nose where it doesn't belong. I'll leave you be.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

That response completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth is worried about you and Bastila. He's afraid the temptation of the dark side might destroy you both. He could be right… or he could just be a typically over-protective male.

Third Star Map[edit]

Four more dialogs can be unlocked after acquiring a third Star Map with a female character, although only the first three need to be completed to romance Carth.

Ninth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You seem like you're far away. Is something wrong?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Not only that, you're a fool. You're wasting your time on useless ghosts.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: She isn't a ghost to me. I still remember holding her as she died... and I doubt I'll forget until I've paid Saul back in kind. That's all I have left: finding Saul and killing the scum. Don't worry... I won't waste any more time until then.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

That response completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Once again Carth has vowed to kill Saul Karath for his betrayal. Hopefully Carth's desire for revenge won't jeopardize the mission.

Tenth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So tell me... what happens if you ever get your revenge on Saul?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth has admitted he expects his vengeance against Saul to result in both their deaths. He hasn't even thought about what he will do next if he kills Saul and somehow manages to survive.

Eleventh[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You've been watching me very closely as of late. Why is that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Just keep your eyes to yourself from now on and leave me be, got that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Oh, this is too corny. Take a hike and leave me alone, will you?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh. Right. I'll, ah, I'll just pay attention to what I'm doing... KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Sorry. Didn't mean to... embarrass you. I'll stop.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

Either of those responses completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
It seems you've finally won Carth's full trust, though it wasn't easy. How this will affect the mission, or your relationship with Carth, remains to be seen.

This dialog completes the romance with Carth until a fifth Star Map has been acquired and you're ready to travel to the Star Forge System, and it must be completed before Darth Malak has been encountered for the first time, in the hangar of the Leviathan (so ideally, before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world).

Twelfth[edit]

This final dialog is actually optional:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You look like you want to say something.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget it, I said. I don't need you crowding me. Period.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I, uh... I guess I have no other choice. I will still help you, if I can... but I guess you're on your own. If that's the way you want it, I hope things go well. Let's, uh... let's get back to what we were doing.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

Otherwise:

In either case, the romance with Carth has already been completed, at least until a fifth Star Map is acquired...

Finding Dustil[edit]

After acquiring a second Star Map, and unlocking and completing the Seventh unlocked dialog, if Carth is in your party then a man named Jordo may approach and speak to you in one of the following locations:

Dantooine Tatooine Kashyyyk Manaan Korriban
Jedi Enclave Docking Bay Czerka Landing Port Docking Bay No
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Finding Dustil
You ran into an old friend of Carth's... who stunned Carth with the news that he had seen Carth's son, Dustil. The only hitch seems to be that Dustil has joined the Sith. He is a student at the Sith academy on Korriban. Carth has urged you to go there at the earliest opportunity.

Some experience and items are received while completing this quest, and you can move (much) closer to the light side of the Force. If you speak to Carth at any time before Finding Dustil on Korriban:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Talk about what? The only thing I want to do right now is find Dustil. If he's alive... well, there's just nothing else I want to think about. I'll understand if we can't look for him right now, but if we could it would be a huge load off my mind.

However, once this quest is activated a female character cannot continue to romance Carth until it's been completed with Dustil's eyes opened to the true nature of the Sith, so if you want to romance him then you might want to avoid activating it until that romance is complete (completing this quest is not necessary to complete the romance, although if you want to do so then it must be unlocked before Darth Malak has been encountered in the hangar of the Leviathan, ideally before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world). If Dustil's eyes are closed, any romance ends:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Carth
Carth and you have nothing more to talk about, for the moment.

So a dark side female who wants to romance him should either avoid this quest entirely or complete it as soon as possible after acquiring a second Star Map, to avoid wasting dark side points (since you normally move (much) closer to the light side of the Force the closer to the dark you already are), even on Dantooine itself: return later to claim the reward for destroying the Mandalorian Raiders, find the Missing Companion, and investigate the Murdered Settler, Sandral-Matale Feud and Strange Stowaway, but before acquiring your fourth Star Map. You should also acquire your second Star Map on Tatooine, since you can do so without squandering opportunities to move closer to the dark (although these are much more common than those to move closer to the light, so don't be too concerned).

Banter[edit]

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

Commentary[edit]

Even if you don't speak to Carth 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:
