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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Me? Well, I've been a star-pilot for the Republic for years. I've seen more than my share of wars… I fought in the Mandalorian Wars before all this started. But with all that, I've never experienced anything like the slaughter these Sith animals can unleash. Not even the Mandalorians were that senseless. My home world was one of the first planets to fall to Malak's fleet. The Sith bombed it into submission, and there wasn't a damn thing our Republic forces could do to stop them!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're talking like it's your fault. Like you failed somehow. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sorry, Carth. This must be very painful for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Calm down. I was just asking.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It shouldn't be my fault. I did everything I could… I followed my orders and did my duty. That shouldn't mean I failed them! I didn't! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You're the one who wanted to know more about me. Well this is it, this is what I am.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm just a soldier; I go where the fleet Admirals tell me to. I follow my orders and I do my duty. It just… *sigh* doesn't seem right that doing that means I failed them! I didn't!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Them? Do you mean the people of your home world? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sorry, Carth, I didn't mean to upset you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Hey, why are you getting so mad at me? It's not like this was my fault!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yes. No… no, that's not what I mean. I mean… I'm sorry. I'm not making much sense, am I? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know. Don't worry about it. I just… must not be making much sense. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know that. I'm not angry at you… don't think that. I must not be making much sense.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You probably mean well with your questions. I'm just not accustomed to talking about my past very much. At all, actually. I'm more used to taking action… keeping my mind focused on the business at hand. So let's just do that. If you have more questions, ask them later.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I guess I did say you could ask me questions later, didn't I? Is this really necessary?

A female character can flirt with him:

KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm all ears, beautiful.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. 'Beautiful'? Isn't that a little inappropriate? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Keep addressing me like that and you might lose an ear or two. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I like the sound of that.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Is there something else you'd prefer I called you? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Heh heh. A little bit touchy, are we? Is there something else you'd prefer I called you? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Which? The fact that I'm all ears or the beautiful part?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Carth, are you flirting with me?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Not really. Just a habit. You have something you'd rather I call you by?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Why do I get the impression that you're not serious? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Forget it. Let's get back to my questions.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Maybe I'm just avoiding your questions. Is this really necessary? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: All business today, eh? Are these questions really necessary?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How about my name? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'd prefer you didn't call me anything. It's demeaning. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How about 'gorgeous'? I like that better. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. The beautiful part. Keep calling me that.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't get yourself in a twist over it, gorgeous. I didn't mean anything by it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. There you go again! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's no good, either. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Now that one I like. Call me that from now on.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, for crying out -- fine. If it'll make you feel better, you call me something. Go ahead, come on, I can take it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What? Don't be ridiculous. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I might consider it. What are you going to call me, in exchange?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What? Are you afraid you'll hurt my feelings? Come on, spit it out. You can do it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How about "pushy thug"? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How about "sexist worm"? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How about "handsome thug"?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Is that it? You can do better than that! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I like the first part of that. I'm a bit more partial to "the most handsome pilot in the galaxy". What do you think?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Lobotomized Gamorrean! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Brainless, lice-ridden bantha! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Sexless marsh-toad!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ouch. Heh heh heh. That *is* better. Well, I bet "beautiful" doesn't sound so bad in comparison now, does it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Don't hold your breath. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I think I'm going to be ill.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Maybe not, but I still don't want you calling me that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Ha ha! You are such a pain, you know that? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then, I guess "gorgeous" will have to do until then, won't it? Kidding aside, I bet you're not about to give up on those questions of yours. Are they really necessary?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Stubborn as ever. Okay, you got me. I bet you have your heart set on those questions. Are they really necessary? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Guilty as charged. I'll bet you still have those questions in mind, though. Are they really necessary?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Not if you have a problem with it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I just would like to know you better. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Don't be such a child. It's just a few questions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Answer the damn questions, already.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No. No, I don't have a problem with it, really. Go ahead and interrogate me. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh. Well, if it's an interrogation you wanted, why didn't you say so? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh no, how can I resist a challenge to my manly pride, huh? Ha ha! Fine, you've made your point. Interrogate at will.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. This isn't an interrogation. I never said that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Excellent. Soon all your secrets will be mine! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you getting testy again? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Pretty snappy with the orders, are we? Okay, you got it… sir.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I was just joking, though you do seem to be full of questions. It's rather refreshing, to be honest. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: All my secrets are purely of the mundane variety, unfortunately. Nothing worth extracting, though you're welcome to try. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't get testy. I get angry. And if I was angry, you wouldn't have to ask me if I was, let me assure you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Let me ask you something first, though. I've been going through the battle aboard the Endar Spire over and over in my head since we crashed. Some things just don't add up for me. Maybe you could tell me what happened… from your perspective.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Like you said when we first met: Bastila didn't have time to use her powers. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why ask me? I don't see the point. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I wasn't in a position to know what was going on, really.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: True. Bastila is as powerful as they say… she's the one who defeated Darth Revan, after all. Hmm. I guess that no Jedi ability, no matter how powerful, makes up for being completely surprised and outmatched. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm just trying to figure it out. I saw enough men lose their lives needlessly during the Mandalorian Wars. It's… difficult to see that happening all over again. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Neither was I, to tell the truth. I was onboard as an advisor for the most part. The battle began so fast, it's anyone's guess as to what actually happened.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: We lost the ship and a lot of good people… and for what? On the hope that Jedi powers would save us, somehow. Not that Bastila had much opportunity to act.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: We didn't choose that battle, anyway. It got forced on us. Hell, I'm just surprised that any of us are alive to talk about it. Come to think of it, it's more than a little surprising that you happen to be here, isn't it? Just what is your position with the Republic fleet, anyway?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why? Are you accusing me of something? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm just a soldier. I'm sure there isn't anything unusual about that, is there? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm a scout. I was recruited into the fleet for my skills, if you must know. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I used to be a smuggler, if you must know. I was recruited into the fleet for my knowledge.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Not at all. I just think it's a bit odd that someone who got added to the crew roster at the last minute just happens to be one of the survivors. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Hell no… unless you consider that you were a last-minute addition to the crew roster and you just happen to be one of the survivors. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, that makes sense. Still… it seems a bit strange that someone who was a last-minute addition to the crew roster is one of the survivors. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: A smuggler? I should have guessed. Isn't it odd, however, that a smuggler who was added to the crew at the last minute just happens to be alive?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You'd rather I wasn't? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What's so odd about me being added to the crew at the last minute?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't be ridiculous. You've more than proved yourself since the crash… we wouldn't have made it this far without you. But still…
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Are you implying *I* had something to do with the crash? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You were the only one. Not to mention that Bastila's party was the one who requested your transfer.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No. Well… maybe. Don't get me wrong, it just seems odd that someone Bastila's party specifically requested to transfer aboard happened to survive.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have no idea what you're talking about! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why would Bastila request my transfer? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. It doesn't make any difference. Go ahead and be paranoid.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm not trying to be paranoid. It's just that I learned a long time ago that something which looks like a coincidence probably isn't. Especially when the Jedi are involved.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: The Jedi requested numerous things when they came aboard… hell, they practically took over the ship, as far as I could tell. Considering your connection to Bastila, and the Jedi… whether you know it or not… your presence here seems a little convenient. I'm probably wrong and this is probably nothing, I know. I learned a long time ago not to take things at face value, however. And I *hate* surprises.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean by surprises? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm telling you, Carth, I had nothing to do with the crash. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Shouldn't we be trying to work together?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I mean I have to expect the unexpected. Just to be safe. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I expect you're right. I've got no real reason to suspect you of anything. Still… it's better to be safe than sorry, right? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I am working with you. I'd be a fool not to. I'd also be a fool not to expect the unexpected.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you always this suspicious? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Fine. Let's just get back to something important, then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You do know we're on the same side, right? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Try something and it'll be the last mistake you make.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look… it has nothing to do with you, personally. I don't trust anyone, and I have my reasons. And, no, I'm not going to discuss them. So can we just keep our mind on more important things?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I consider this important. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You haven't heard the last from me on this. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Yes, let's do that.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Alright, alright. You're pretty tenacious, you know that? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Good. Like I said before, I prefer action to talk, anyway.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Alright, alright. You must be the most damned persistent woman I've ever met.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: We'll talk about it… but later. Right now I just want to get going.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You do? Fair enough. What do you want to discuss?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to talk about these issues you seem to have with me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. We didn't finish our conversation last time. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'd like to know now if we have a problem.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: *Sigh* I knew you wouldn't understand where I was coming from. Let me try to explain. You've got the skills of an elite commando, and you've saved my butt more than once. Between that and your facility with languages, I'm lucky you're here. But that doesn't mean I'm going to stop watching you or being wary. I'm just not built that way. Period.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Not built that way? That sounds like an excuse. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why are you so hostile? What did I do to deserve this? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And what, exactly, are you watching me for?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Maybe so. But I've been betrayed before by people I… well, it won't happen again, that's all. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You, uh… haven't done anything *yet*. But there's no guarantee that you won't do anything in the future. I've been betrayed before by people and I… well, it won't happen again. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know that, yet. Like I said before, it's probably nothing. But I've been betrayed before by people and I… well, it won't happen again, that's all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So you want some guarantee that I won't betray you?! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm starting to get pretty tired of this attitude of yours. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Of course it won't happen again if you never trust anyone!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know that you'll betray me. But there are no guarantees… not for you, not for me. You don't have to take it personally. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yeah, well, you wouldn't be the first. Look… I don't expect you to be my friend. This is just the way I am, no need to take it personally. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look… I'm not trying to insult you. This is just the way I am, no need to take it personally.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm beginning to wonder if you're even capable of trusting anyone. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I do take it personally!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, you can stop wondering. I'm not. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, that's too bad, then, because it's not going to change.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Right. And how am I supposed to know that *you* won't betray us?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes, you! Why should I trust you, after all? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why not you? Accusing other people is a good cover for a traitor.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You shouldn't. If you're smart, you won't trust anyone… not me, not Bastila, and especially not yourself. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't remember ever saying anything about "traitor". All I mean is that if you're smart, you won't trust anyone… not me, not Bastila and especially not yourself.

A female character can take it even more personally:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Don't tell me not to take it personally, you hairless Wookiee!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Hairless Wookiee? Alright, sister, just... just... just calm down before your head explodes.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. We'll just see whose head explodes, you ungrateful monkey-lizard! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't tell me to calm down, you ignorant bantha!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Is that your idea of an insult? Come on, sister, take your best shot.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Gamorrean pig-man! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Drooling Bomarr cast-off!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, ouch. I think you hurt my man-feelings with that one.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well, you had it coming. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't patronize me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I guess I did. Feel better now? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Wouldn't think of it. Feel better now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Maybe a little. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Not really. This is still serious.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Good. Then maybe we can talk reasonably about this. All I've been trying to say is that this isn't personal. If you were smart, you wouldn't trust anyone, either... not me, not Bastila and especially not yourself. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: *Sigh* Look... all I mean is that if you're smart, you won't trust anyone... not me, not Bastila and especially not yourself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Ahhh… so you don't trust yourself, is that it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Pretty pithy advice, I see. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I wouldn't want to live like that.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't need to be analyzed, thanks. Can we just get back to business? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Not all of us have the luxury of choice. I'm conditioned this way, sorry.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I didn't ask for your advice, nor do I need it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't need someone around who doesn't trust me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So leave. Be on your own, it's obviously what you want. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You sure you don't want to talk about it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. That settles that, I guess.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And I don't need all these questions. What I do need is to try and save the galaxy, if that's even possible. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's not what I want. I have a duty and I intend to see it through. The galaxy's in danger and I want to save it… that's what I want! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I don't want to talk about it. What I want is to save the galaxy… if that's even possible.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Why is whether or not I trust you or anyone so damned important to you? Why… why do you even care? We don't have time for this, so can we please just… drop it. For now? Can we pick it up later if you really must, I… want to get underway.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh? You want to argue some more, is that it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm always up for a good fight. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I just want to know why you distrust me so much. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I don't want to argue with you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ha! Can't say I've met a woman quite like you before. You're really something. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So I've seen. If I were Malak I'd be a bit nervous to have you on my tail. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What does it matter that much? Why can't you just leave it be? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And I don't really want to argue with you, either. You seem… sincere enough, I guess.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I just don't trust easily, and for good reasons… which are my own.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But we have to work together, Carth, so it has plenty to do with me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What reasons? I want to know. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Fine. You can stuff your reasons, then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I can make you talk, Carth. Trust me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ahhh, damn it. I suppose I won't get any rest until I talk, will I? You want to know why I don't trust anyone? Fine, here goes. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Heh heh. Well I might be willing to take you up on that challenge. But uh, you're just not going to let up, are you? Fine... you want to know why I don't trust anyone? Here goes.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Five years ago the Jedi had just finished the war with the Mandalorians. Revan and Malak were heroes. I was damn proud to have served in their fleet. It was completely unexpected when they turned on us, invading the Republic while we were still weak. Nobody knew what to think, least of all me. Our heroes had become brutal, conquering Sith… and we were all but helpless before them. Think about it… if you can't even trust the best of the Jedi, who can you trust?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do I have to do with Malak and Revan? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. They turned to the dark side, obviously. Why is it so personal? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I suppose you can't. That must have been hard to take.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It… it's not that. It's… That's not what I mean. There were… there were others. Good, solid, trusted men who joined them. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I… of course the Jedi turned to the dark side. There were others, however, who weren't Jedi. Good men… trusted men who joined them. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I… it wasn't even that. There were others: good, solid men. Trusted men who turned on us, as well, and joined their cause.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Malak and Revan and the Sith deserve to die for what they've done… but the ones who fled the Republic and joined them are even worse. The dark side has nothing to do with why they joined the Sith. They deserve no mercy!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You say that with such… hatred. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I haven't joined the Sith, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know. I… should apologize to you. I've become so accustomed to expecting the worst in others, and you've done nothing to deserve that. It's just… never mind. Let's just continue with what we were doing. I'd rather not talk about it.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I thought I said I didn't want to talk about it anymore.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Don't you think you'd feel better if you discussed it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Yes, but I'm bored, so spit it out. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I think you owe me an explanation, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Listen, sister... just because we're working together does not mean you get to badger me with constant questions!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Not particularly. I… guess it wouldn't hurt, exactly, either, though I don't know why you're so interested. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Cute. Nice to know that you're so full of concern. *Sigh* Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt, though I don't know why you're so interested. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not going to repeat myself, Carth, You owe me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I… suppose you're right. Fine, then. But I don't know why you're so interested, but here it goes.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do we have another problem, now? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're damn right it does.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Blast it if you aren't the most frustrating woman to talk to! Isn't there someone else you can harass for a little while?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. *I'm* frustrating? Look who's talking! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. And you say I'm frustrating to deal with. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What exactly is it about me that frustrates you?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What? Me? What did I do? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh no, I'm not falling for that one. I wasn't born yesterday, you know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Oh, that's rich. Where have you been? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You don't know? Typical male. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Really? It's hard to tell. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Well, I wouldn't want you to feel harassed. Have it your way. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Never mind. I'll leave you alone, since I'm so frustrating. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Alright, then, I'll leave you alone if that's what you want.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... *sigh* Okay, I give up. You win. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Wait... *sigh* I didn't mean it that way. Don't go, damn it.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look, I suppose I... could use someone to talk to. I'm just not used to it. And I don't know why you're so interested. But here goes.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: When I think of all the men who have betrayed us, the one that stands out above them all is the one I respected the most. Saul.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You say that name like I should know it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That name sounds familiar.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You don't? I thought everyone did. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: With good reason.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Admiral Saul Karath is the commander of the entire Sith fleet. He's half the reason Malak has done so well in the war. Saul was my commanding officer back when the Mandalorian Wars first began. He taught me everything about being a soldier… and I looked up to him. Saul approached me before he left. He talked to me about how the Republic was on the losing side… and about how I should start thinking of my survival. I know now that he was trying to recruit me into the Sith, but I couldn't have conceived of it back then. I argued with him and he got angry and he left. I never saw him again.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You didn't think he would betray the Republic? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How could you have not seen through that?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I didn't want to, maybe. Are you so sure you would have?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Saul was my mentor… he led us to so many victories against the Mandalorians, even when things looked to be at their worst. I just… I couldn't conceive of it. He… he couldn't be serious. I was wrong, of course… he not only left us for the Sith, he… he gave them the codes to bypass our scanners. I remember waking up as the first of the Sith bombers snuck past our defenses and began destroying half of our docked ships. I knew right away what had happened. I… could have stopped him. I could have stopped it all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So you blame yourself for trusting your friend? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you really believe that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And that's why you feel so sorry for yourself?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I blame Saul, not myself. I was… I was stupid and I ignored the danger. He nearly destroyed us all. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know. Maybe. He might have killed me if I'd tried, or I might have killed him. I was stupid, however, and I let him go. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't even start with that! I don't feel sorry for myself. I feel angry… at Saul and all those others. It's all I can think about sometimes!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I've fought Saul for years, now, and if I ever catch up to him… he will regret what he's done. He will regret it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So that's all of it, then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's terrible. I feel awful for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'd do the same thing in your shoes.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No. No, it's not. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well… there's more to the story, I guess.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: But I don't want to talk about it right now. Let's go.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Have I been quiet? I suppose I have. I guess I just don't like being left out of the loop.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Left out of the loop? I don't understand. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not the one leaving you out of the loop, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Oh, poor baby. You need filling in on some detail?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Left out of the loop. You know. Not being told anything… strung along. It's really starting to irritate me. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No? Well, you certainly aren't helping matters any, either, and it's really starting to irritate me. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You want to be smart, do you? Fine. So long as I get some questions answered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Oh, poor baby. You need filling in on some detail? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You were born out of the loop.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Listen, sister, I don't remember reading anywhere that it's a requirement that you remain with us after we left Taris, yet here you are. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Very cute. If you got any cuter, you'd pass for a Gamorrean's sister.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Same could be said for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I have more of a purpose here than you do, flyboy. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Yes, here I am. And I'm not going anywhere. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The things you say! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Better than a Gamorrean's mother.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, damn it, I want to know why that is! I want some questions answered! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well... yeah, true enough, I guess. But, damn it, I'm tired of nobody telling me anything! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look, I'm serious. No one seems to want to tell me anything, and it's starting to irritate me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: For one thing, I want to know what the Jedi Council said to you. They pulled you in there and refused to tell me a thing about it.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: *That* is none of your concern, Carth, and you would do well to leave the matter be. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm rather curious to know what went on... and why they didn't keep you on Dantooine for training. Isn't that strange?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I respect you, Bastila, but you've been as close-mouthed as the rest of the Council. If you won't talk to me, then maybe somebody else will. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why don't you ask Bastila?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I would be more than happy to, but she's as close-mouthed as the rest of the Council. I'm hoping you'll be the one to enlighten me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why should anything the Jedi do seem strange to you?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I may not know much about the Jedi, but I do know they aren't famous for taking on old Padawans and sending them on dangerous assignments.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. They thought it was more important that I help find the Star Maps than stay.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And why is that? You were a great help on Taris, but why would they keep you with us? Don't they… don't they have to train you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. It's none of your business, frankly.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: None of my business? Uh, I'm sorry… aren't I a part of this mission? The Jedi may be in charge, but I'm risking all the same things you are!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. They said there's a bond between Bastila and myself. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I've done pretty well so far. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Isn't that the point? Aren't we all in this together? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Get a hold of yourself. I'm sick of your paranoia.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: A bond? What kind of bond? You mean to say that they told you you were “tied” to Bastila in some way? Heh, I have trouble believing that. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's completely beside the point. The Jedi encouraged you to stay with us, and I don't believe the reasons they gave. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Are we? Why, then, does it seem like the Jedi know everything and leave the rest of us out in the cold? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You can be sick of whatever you like. What I'm sick of is being kept in the dark!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You're a neophyte Padawan who's been saddled with the responsibility of tracking down these Star Maps. Why? That's not normal! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I've been watching you... you can be cruel and impulsive. A Jedi without self-control or training, and yet the Council sends you on your way? Why?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm not trying to provoke you or imply that you're somehow responsible for the Jedi Council… but give me a hand, here! There has to be a reason!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you saying I'm not needed? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm here and that's not going to change. Get over it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm sick of listening to you rant! Why don't *you* leave?! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Bastila and I have a bond. We have to do this together. That's all I'm going to say.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I don't… I didn't mean that you weren't wanted, or that I want to go! It's just… damn it! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And what does that mean? Is this more of that destiny garbage that the Jedi keep talking about? Well, that can't be it!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'll tell you this much… I am *not* going to wait around until I'm betrayed again!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I am *not* going to betray you! I am *not* Saul! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. And just what are you going to do about it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I am *sick* of listening to this. Just shut up or leave!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, we'll see about that, won't we? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Nothing. Not yet. You just better hope I don't get a reason to. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Fine. You got it. Conversation over.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look, I didn't mean it that way. I want to get to Saul, not… no… no, forget it. It seems all I can do is insult you, isn't it? Just forget I said anything. Let's… let's… just get on with what we were doing.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I, ahhh... I'm not very good at this. I... I know I owe you an apology. Uh, more than one, probably. I was just so desperate to finally face Saul directly in the battle over Taris, and now the Jedi have us looking for these... these Star Maps. I know this mission is important, it's just... I feel a bit useless. I can fight, sure, but I'm no Jedi... all this feels completely out of my league.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And how does that excuse your actions? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why don't you return to the front lines, then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Maybe if you pull yourself together you won't be so useless.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It doesn't, I know. It's... been a while since I even had to think about that sort of thing. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Because this is more important. This may really, finally, make a difference... I suppose even if I can't figure out everything that's going on, I still want to help if I can. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You don't exactly pull any punches, do you? Not that I don't deserve it, I suppose.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I just hate not knowing what's going on and feeling this... helpless. But I shouldn't have taken that out on you. I've been a royal pain in the backside, haven't I?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Not really. I couldn't care less what you think. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You sure have. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Don't worry about it, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I guess there's no harm done then. Still I, uh... I should know better by now. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ha! Well... I guess I should be at least a little pleased that I haven't lost my touch. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I do worry about it. I've traveled the lanes more than once, I should know better than this.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Only if you agree to work with me, for once.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Done! Let's get underway, then, shall we... partner?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't know. Maybe you should work for it, a bit.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh? I don't know if I like the sound of that...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Don't you want me to accept your apology?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know. What am I going to have to do for it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Blow away the bad guy. Save the damsel in distress. The usual. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Just make sure you don't need to make any more apologies. Deal? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Just a little kiss. How about it?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I...heh, I really think that we should, ah... get going.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, the usual. Well that's not so hard. Let's get to it, then, shall we? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Done! Let's get underway, then, shall we... partner? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No kiss, then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I was only joking, Carth, relax.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm sorry. I'm glad things are better between us, now. We should... we should go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No need to start sweating, Carth. I was only teasing.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So... you do accept my apology. Huh. Good. Good. I'm glad. You know you, uh... you aren't so bad to have around, you know that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I know. I'm very charming, I'm told. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I knew there was a reason we kept you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have my uses. Let's go.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: More than that. But... anyway... we should be off... KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Right. Off we go.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I already told you. He betrayed us all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It just seems to be more… personal than that, is all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Come on, Carth, you aren't fooling me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, there... there is more to it. I'm... I'm sure you don't want to hear about it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I asked, didn't I? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I do, if it's alright with you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Spit it out already.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's just that I... don't talk about it very much. Ok? I told you about my homeworld. Telos. Four years ago, Saul led the Sith fleet there and demanded its surrender. The planet refused and Saul proceeded to devastate its entire surface. Millions died. I had... a wife and son on Telos. I thought they would be safe there. But my task force arrived too late to be of much help. We didn't have enough medical supplies. The colony was burning and the dying were everywhere. I remember holding my wife and screaming for the medics. They... didn't come in time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's terrible, I'm sorry. I didn't know. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What happened after that?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Of course not. How could you? I... had nothing left after that, really. I devoted myself to the fleet. Hunting Saul was my only purpose. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I had... had nothing left after that, really. I devoted myself to the fleet. Hunting Saul was my only purpose.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... miss them. I know killing Saul won't bring them back, and it won't make me happy again... but I have to do it. I don't expect you to understand. I have to pay him back for what he's done... I have to. It's all I have left.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I didn't mean to pry.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, it's alright, I don't mind. You deserved some kind of... explanation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What was she like, your wife?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: She had courage and ... and she was stubborn. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: She had courage... and she was stubborn. Heh... a little bit like you in that respect.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I could never talk her out of anything once she put her mind to it. And she hated it when I signed back onto the fleet at the start of the war. I had planned on... on leaving soon, to join her...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. So this is where all that anger comes from.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yes. I can't forgive Saul for this. He took everything from me, even... even my trust. I hope you can understand that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So what happened to your son? You didn't say.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: His name was Dustil and I don't know what happened to him. The colony was a complete ruin, and we never found any trace of him. I made inquiries and followed the reports from Telos for years, but... I stopped. Anyway... I hope that answers your questions. Let's, uh... let's continue with what we were doing.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: To think that I once looked up to those two as the best that humanity had to offer. Now I'd like nothing more than to put a blaster to both their heads. Although I suppose only Malak is left, isn't he? Turned on his own master, not that Revan didn't have it coming. Heh. Typical for their kind, I guess.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You knew them personally?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, not personally. They aided the Republic during the Mandalorian wars. They were heroes. Without them the Mandalorians would have finished us for certain. In the fleet, we didn't see much of the Jedi. I only met Malak once, but I was impressed by him. I guess that just shows how much the dark side can change someone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know why they turned to the dark side?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Nobody does. When they left after the Mandalorian wars ended, they were Jedi. When they returned... they were something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How did they get away with all this?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well... when they returned from wherever they went, they had an entire fleet with them. Nobody knows where they got the ships. They had a lot of them and as the years have passed there always seems to be more and more... while our forces dwindle. Did they really get away with it, though? Revan was betrayed by Malak... and Malak hasn't won. In the end, the dark side won't help him.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What do you know about the dark side?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I, uh... used to think that it was a fancy name for something that I see every day. Corruption is everywhere. People are greedy and stupid and do horrible things. I'm starting to think it's different for the Jedi, however. That there's this evil watching them, waiting for its chance.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I've been watching you. You have this, uh... incredible darkness inside you. Some of the things you do disturb me. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You have so much courage and strength in you... yet, somehow, I have no trouble imagining it differently. Like the flip side of a coin.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's not just you. It's Bastila, as well. She's so... intense. I don't pretend to know much about the Force... but I know evil.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You think Bastila and I are evil? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You don't know what you're talking about, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not falling to the dark side, Carth, and I won't. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I do what I want, and enjoy my power. Evil has nothing to do with it.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, of course not. All I'm saying is that when you have so much power, the stakes are higher. I can only imagine the kind of conflict that goes on inside you. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No? I know how people change. I remember how Malak looked and acted before his return... I bet the old Malak discounted the possibility that he would ever fall, as well. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's a frightening thought. I hope you're right.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Neither you nor Bastila are fully trained on how to handle your power. I'm just concerned at what might come.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's sweet. I didn't know you cared. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I can handle myself, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, that's not what I... I mean... I wouldn't want to see you hurt. Either of you. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know that, and Bastila says the same thing. You're both incredible women. I'm just... I'm just not sure this is the kind of thing you can defeat.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I suppose finding the Star Maps is more important than your training... and your safety. I just hope there isn't a price for you to pay.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh... it's nothing. Sorry.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It doesn't seem like nothing. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Out with it, Carth. I won't have you moping.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Moping? I'm not moping! I... okay, fine, maybe I'm moping a little, but you're very pushy, you know that?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I told you my wife died four years ago. I... I've just been trying to remember what she looked like. It shouldn't be so difficult. I can remember things about her... things she did. The way she smiled, what her hair smelled like, our last fight... just not her face. I try to hold it in my head but it's gone. Is... that strange? Maybe I shouldn't be talking to you about this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It does feel a little odd to discuss her, I admit. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, it's not strange, Carth. You remember the important things. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Will you get over her, already? It's been four years!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ahhh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have mentioned it, even if you asked. I just find you, I don't know... easy to talk to. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: But I *should* be able to remember her face. It's frustrating! I... feel like I'm losing her. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's a damned mean thing to say. I wasn't ready for her to go, I can't accept it. Alright?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I, uh... it must look really strange for me to be obsessing like this, still. You must think I'm incredibly stupid.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No, but I doubt your wife would want you to do this to yourself. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What I think shouldn't matter, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... suppose you're probably right. But I have to do it, anyway. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Maybe. It can't be worse than what I tell myself, sometimes.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: The only thing that's kept me going since she died has been the need to find Saul and kill him. It's better to think about that than... anything else. If I can do that, then maybe I can let her go. Let it all go. If we encounter Saul... if we ever have the chance, promise me that I will be the one to kill him. I have to settle this... I need to.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Things may not work out that way. I can't promise that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. That's not going to help anything, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. If we get the opportunity... then I promise.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Whether it does or not, that's the way it has to be. I... guess there's no need to discuss it until then. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Thank you. I... guess there's really nothing else to say.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You mean if I kill him?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes. What happens afterwards?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... never thought about it. I suppose I always assumed that I would be dead once Saul was.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why? What kind of risks do you plan on taking? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But what if you don't die? What then?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Understand that whenever I envisioned taking on Saul in the past, it was always as the captain of my own ship... or alone. In those cases I would risk everything. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's never occurred to me. I've always been the captain of my own ship, after all... or thought about going after Saul on my own.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm not in the same situation, now. I wouldn't risk hurting you... or the others.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How do I know that's the truth? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I would certainly hope not.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You don't think I would throw away everything we're doing here, do you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't know. What wouldn't you stop at to kill Saul? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What are we doing here? Does it mean anything to you?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I would like to think that I wouldn't put you in danger. That I wouldn't forget that there's more behind Saul that needs to be stopped. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Of course it means something to me! The Sith have to be stopped! You think it doesn't matter to me that everyone on Taris is dead? That the Republic is in danger?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: If I saw Saul, however... if I had the chance... I don't know what I would do. I really don't. I mean his death has been my entire focus for so long.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well, you'll have to find something else to focus on. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I need your help, Carth. There's more than Saul to fight. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Then I can't rely on you. You shouldn't have come.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, that's easier said than done, but I know you mean well. I promise you I'll see this through. No matter what. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know. I'll... see this through. I promise you that. No matter what. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: But, uh... maybe it's best I did. I have to see this through... and I will, to the end. I promise you that. No matter what.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: As for what comes afterward... well, let's wait until I know that I'm around to see it.
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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh. I hadn't thought you'd noticed...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm blind, now, am I? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. If you were any more obvious, your eyes would fall out of your head.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, no, I didn't mean it that way. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Err... I'm not that bad, am I?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Oh, I get it. You think I'm stupid, right? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Relax, Carth, I'm teasing you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Not for a monkey-lizard, no. Not bad at all.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Damn it, woman, if you keep hounding me I'm going to put you over my knee and teach you a lesson!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well, I did. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'd still like to know what you see that interests you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is that a promise? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Hah! I'd like to see you try!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, I ah... I've just been admiring you. Not, uhh, not anything like that, though... KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, no, I'm not even going there, sister. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You just wait, you'll get yours.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: At any rate, I wasn't ogling you. I've just been admiring you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I've been watching you in action. Your, your skills... you have a natural talent that is incredible. Not that, ah, all I do is watch you or anything. I don't mean anything by it.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It's alright. I don't mind if you watch me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Oh? Any other observations?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ha! Why didn't you tell me that sooner? You would have saved me a lot of trouble. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well... maybe a few. I hope you won't mind if I keep those to myself.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I will say one thing, however. We've come a long way with your help. Whether it's the Force or fate or just dumb luck... I'm glad you're here. We probably would have never made it this far without you. I... should have said this long before, instead of doubting you. I, ah, hope you can forgive me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That was rather like pulling teeth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You already apologized once, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Is that it?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I guess I'm a proud man. I... don't admit things like this easily. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And you accepted it... but that doesn't mean I'm forgiven. I'd like to be. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Err... what do you mean?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why do you need my forgiveness, anyway? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget it. You don't get off so easy. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I mean is that how you ask for forgiveness? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I mean that's a damn poor excuse for an apology.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Because you're an impressive and beautiful woman. In some ways... good ways... you remind me of my wife and I'd like to make things right between us. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What am I supposed to say? I was wrong. I was a stubborn fool. I... Look, I have trouble admitting it when a beautiful woman has my number...ok?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Alright, you're off the hook. You're forgiven. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well... that's certainly better... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You think I'm beautiful?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Thank you. Let's, ah... let's get back to what we were doing. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'll, ah, take that as a yes. I'm glad that's settled. Shall we... shall we get back to what we were doing?
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, you can tell, can you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I can. Do you need to talk?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I do. It's serious, though... I need your attention. Is this a good time?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Well, your mouth keeps opening. That's a sign, I think. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. It doesn't take Jedi powers to read a man, believe me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, yeah? Well listen, beautiful, I don't need to take this abuse. I get enough female Jedi bashing from Bastila, thank you very much.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Don't like it, huh? What are you going to do about it?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Wouldn't you like to know. Just you wait, sister.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Sure, sure. You're all talk, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Bring it on, flyboy. I bet I take you down.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And just what would you do if I wasn't? No, no, wait, don't answer that. I don't want to know. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Uh. *That* is one bet I'm not about to take. Not a chance.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You love the attention. Admit it.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You think so? I could probably get the same kind of attention from a blaster rifle.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I could leave you alone with one, if you prefer. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Good idea. I'll go get one. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Oh, I think there's things I can do that a blaster can't.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ha! No, wait, wait, don't go. Not just yet. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Now *that* I'd like to see. Or would I? You've got my damn head on backwards, you know that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Oh. So there's something between you and Bastila.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What?! No! I mean... no! Don't be crazy!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So someone would be crazy to like Bastila? I'll have to tell her that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I've seen the way you look at her. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So I'm crazy now, am I?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh no you don't! I'd have to shoot you down first, and I'm not kidding. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What? You must be joking. I'd be lucky not to get my eyeballs seared out of their sockets. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Was there ever any doubt?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Anyway... as fun, uh, as this is, I do have to talk to you about something serious. Really serious. Uh, is this a good time?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, maybe later.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Alright. We'll talk later, then.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. This is fine.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Alright. I'm, uh... I'm concerned about you. I've been keeping these thoughts to myself, mostly, but I think it's time I say something.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What's this about? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You've been keeping something to yourself?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's about you. I'm worried about what you're doing to yourself... how much you've succumbed to violence and anger. I knew it was possible for this to happen to you... and it just pains me to see it. I've been down this path. And I don't recommend it. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's about you. I'm worried about what might happen to you. You have a lot of courage, and the fact you've remained strong is amazing, but there is even greater danger ahead. I think you might be setting yourself up for a fall. Maybe at the urging of the Jedi, I don't know... but you're definitely going to become a target.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: If, uh... if I'm going to find some purpose beyond taking revenge on Saul, then it's going to have to be in protecting you. I don't know why, but I think some terrible fate is waiting for you. I think the Jedi Council knows it, too. And I don't want that to come to pass.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I can take care of myself. I don't need you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. And just how are you supposed to protect me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I haven't 'succumbed' to anything. What do you know?! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You think the Jedi have thrown me to the wolves?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's where I think you're wrong. You can't do this on your own. Nobody could. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I *sigh* I... don't know. I'm not the best of men, and I'm not the strongest fighter there is... but I'll find a way. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I know that there's going to come a day when you'll look in the mirror and wonder how you ever got to become what you are... and by then it will be too late. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't chalk it up to my paranoia just yet. Something isn't right. I blamed it on you, before, but I... I think the Jedi didn't tell us everything.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: If I'm going to live past Saul, I need you to, as well. Let me protect you... from yourself, from the Sith... you have to let me try.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why are you doing this? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Fine, Carth. Do what you have to.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Because... because I never got the chance to save my wife and son. Because I didn't stop Saul when I had the chance. Because I finally have the chance to do it right. You are an extraordinary woman... you make me think that maybe I might have some purpose beyond revenge. I don't know whether it means anything to you... but it does to me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It means a lot to me, Carth. Thank you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Alright, Carth. I'd be glad for the help.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm glad to hear that. I'll do my best.

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
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Carth! Carth Onasi, is that you?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Jordo?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: It *is* you, isn't it? I knew it when I laid eyes on you! You old spacedog, how have you been? I thought for sure you'd be fighting on some ship out there.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I was. I crashed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Ha ha ha! That's pretty rich. I can't imagine what it would take to keep you on the ground.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Must have something to do with your friend, here, hey? How's it going? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Must have something to do with your pretty friend, here, hey? How do you do, miss?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Can we hurry this up...? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're a friend of Carth, I take it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Nice to meet you, Jordo.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Oh, I apologize. You folks are probably busy, aren't you? I just wanted to catch up with Carth, that's all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Sure am. We joined the militia together back on Telos. That was a lot of years ago, of course.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So, what are you doing here, Jordo? The last time I saw you was on, u... well, Telos, actually.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Yeah... it's a shame about home. Telos still hasn't recovered. The family and I moved on, and I'm working for Czerka now. I didn't see you after... er, what I mean is, my condolences on your wife. I heard what happened. At least your boy made it through alright.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: My... boy? You mean... Dustil?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Yes, of course. I saw him at my last stop, on Korriban, though he didn't recognize me. You... didn't know he was there?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No! Jordo, Dustil has been missing since the attack on Telos! Are you... are you absolutely certain it was him?!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Yeah. I'd recognize Dustil anywhere. Positive. He's, uh... he's joined the Sith, Carth...
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: What do you mean he's joined the Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: There's an academy for the Sith on Korriban. He's a student there. I saw him suited up in their outfit and everything. Sorry... I thought you knew.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No... no, I... I didn't. Well, thanks for telling me, Jordo.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jordo: Sure, no problem. Good to see you again, Carth. Hope everything works out with Dustil.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Dustil... Dustil is alive! We have to go to the Korriban academy and find him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. We have other priorities, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I understand. We'll go as soon as possible. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Are you sure that's wise?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You think I don't know that? I just... if there's a chance we can try to find him... I don't want to wait to track him down, if possible. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Thank you. I... I just have to see him. I have to know what happened to him. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know. I don't know why Dustil would be with the Sith... but I... I have to find out. There's simply no choice.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: All this time I've thought he was... he must be a man by now...
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk about it?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: There's nothing to talk about. I failed my son... just as I failed my wife. I thought that if I ever found him... I just can't believe he's dead. I... you should have stopped him! You should have done something to prevent this!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Me? Why am I suddenly at fault? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't try blaming me for your problems, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, don't give me that innocent look! You can talk a Hutt out of his credits, you could have found a way... you could have saved him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That seems a lot to expect from me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He was a Sith, Carth, remember? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're right. I should have tried.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Is it? You seem just fine at pulling off the near-impossible... when you want to. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: He was my son!!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Why didn't you want to? You knew how important finding Dustil was to me! You... you've helped others, why not him? Why not me? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I can't help but wonder if part of you didn't enjoy this. I thought we might be friends, but with you... heh, who can tell?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm sorry, Carth. I wish I could have stopped this. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Stop trying to put all the blame on me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You think I enjoyed it? That's pretty low. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. We're not friends, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You could have. But... you're only partly to blame. I'm to blame for all the rest. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: All the blame? No. Part of the blame, though... part of the blame is yours. The rest is mine. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Is it? I find it hard to tell which side you're on, sometimes. Still... not all the blame is yours. Most of it is mine. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I see that. I don't know what I was expecting, telling you all I did. The blame is mostly mine for this, anyway.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... I wish we hadn't come. I wish I'd never found him.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm sorry for your loss, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You didn't fail him, Carth. You did your best. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Wishing won't help matters, will it?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm sorry, too. And I'm sorry I ever met you. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I did fail him. And so did you. I wish I'd never met you. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No. If it did, I would never have met you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... no, I didn't mean that. Please... maybe it would be better if we continued with the mission. I want to... take my mind off this. Saving the galaxy is what's important now. My son... I can mourn my son later. When we're done. So... let's just go.
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:

Bastila
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Bastila, I was wondering something. How did those Vulkars manage to capture a famous Jedi like you? Were you knocked out when your escape pod crashed?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: No, I was conscious. But my Force powers were exhausted from using my Battle Meditation in the battle for the Endar Spire. Without my help you might never have gotten off the ship alive.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Fair enough. But I've seen you Jedi in action. There's no way those thugs would have stood a chance against your lightsaber.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: My lightsaber was… misplaced. I couldn't find it after the crash. I looked *everywhere* in that pod. The Vulkars came and overwhelmed me even as I was searching for my weapon.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Wait a minute, let me get this straight. You *lost* your lightsaber? Ha-ha! I mean, isn't that a violation of some kind of Jedi code or something?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Of all the Jedi in the galaxy, why do we get one who's absent-minded? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Maybe losing lightsabers is a side-effect of her Battle Meditation. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Leave her alone, Carth.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: This is no laughing matter! During the crash my lightsaber must have… it must have fallen from my belt and rolled under my seat! The Vulkars probably found it there when they searched the wreckage.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Hey, hey, hey, don't get mad. I'm sorry. It's just funny to think of a legendary Jedi losing her lightsaber. Take my advice: this is one detail you might want to keep out of the history texts.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I hardly consider myself a legend, Carth. Though I will consider your advice when I relate these events to the Jedi Council. There is no need for them to know *every* detail of what transpired.
Bastila
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Bastila, did you ever think about joining all the Jedi who were running off to follow Revan and Malak when they went to fight the Mandalorians?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: That was nearly five years ago. I was still an apprentice, my Battle Meditation hadn't even manifested itself. Yet even then I had the wisdom to obey the will of the Council. Unlike Revan.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I guess. Still, do you ever wonder if things could have been different? Would Revan and Malak still have been corrupted if the Council had supported them instead of dragging its feet?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Do not blame Revan's corruption on the Council! Your Republic saw only the threat of the Mandalorians, but the wisdom of the Masters saw beyond the immediate threat.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What did they see, exactly? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Sounds like you're just making excuses, Bastila.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: There was something lurking out there, something that devoured Revan and Malak – and many other Jedi. Had the Council sent us all into the unknown, how many more would have fallen?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So you're saying we should have done nothing? Just let the Mandalorians conquer us unopposed? I mean, the Republic was under attack, and the Order abandoned us!
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: We did not abandon you! But the Council were not about to throw lives away foolishly. In time, we would have aided you against the Mandalorians. But you couldn't wait. Revan and Malak offered a quicker answer, and the Republic chose to walk the easy path rather than the path of wisdom. Now we see the results all around us. You asked me if I think things could have been different? I *know* they could have! If Revan had only listened to the Council, millions of innocent people would still be alive.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yeah, right. And every single one of them would be speaking Mandalorian. I think we're done here. Let's just get back to the task at hand.
Canderous
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Carth, you fought in the Mandalorian Wars, didn't you? We may have faced each other in combat. What battles were you in?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I try not to think about my past battles too much. The horrors of war are something I'd rather not relive.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: The horrors of war? My people know only the glory of battle. I'm disappointed in you, Carth. I thought a warrior like you would understand.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Carth isn't like you, Canderous. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Yeah, Carth. When did you get all peace-loving on me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Keep it cool, you two. I don't want this getting out of hand.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm not a warrior, I'm a soldier. There's a difference. Warriors attack and conquer, they prey on the weak. Soldiers defend and protect the innocent – mostly from warriors.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Nice speech. I bet you tell yourself that every night so you can sleep. But I accept who and what I am. I don't have to justify it with words – victory in battle is my justification!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Justification through victory? So what happens when you lose? You know, like you did against us.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: You had us outnumbered five to one. You had more ships, more troops, more supplies and the Jedi on your side. And we still made the Republic tremble before we fell!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Nice speech. I bet you tell yourself that every night so you can sleep. I don't want to talk about this anymore, Canderous. The war is over. You lost.
Jolee
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So, Jolee, you decided to leave your little hermitage in the forest and come help us stop the Sith. I guess you realized this was worth coming out of retirement for, huh?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yeah, that's right, sonny. The Sith are the greatest evil to hit the galaxy since, well, the Mandalorians. And they're the worst thing since Exar Kun. Blah, blah, blah, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Okay, old man, you lost me there. Are you trying to make a point?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Look, everybody always figures the time they live in is the most epic, most important age to end all ages. But tyrants and heroes rise and fall, and historians sort out the pieces.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you saying what we're doing isn't important? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. If you feel that way, why did you come with us? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I think it's pretty clear that Malak is the tyrant in this case.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Malak is a tyrant who should be stopped. If he conquers the galaxy we're in for a couple of rough centuries. Eventually it'll come around again, but I'd rather not wait that long. So we do what we have to do, and we try to stop the Sith. But don't start thinking this war - your war - is more important than any other war just because you're in it.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's an interesting theory, but I don't buy it. The Republic stands for something; it's stood for something for fifteen thousand years. And if it falls, everything will change forever.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You believe whatever you need to to get you through this, sonny. The bottom line is we both want to stop Malak, so let's not get hung up on the details. Let's just get back to stopping him.
Mission
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey, Carth. You're a pilot for the Republic, right? You've been all over the galaxy I bet, right? So tell me, how would you rate Taris compared to other worlds you've seen?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'll be honest, Mission. Taris would rate pretty low. The prejudice, the rich spoiling themselves while the poor are crushed beneath them – not a pretty picture.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Yeah, but that's only since the Sith occupation. Before that… well, I guess it wasn't all that different, really. Hmm… maybe Taris ain't as great as I thought, you know?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Trust me, Mission. There are a lot of worlds better than Taris. There are worse, too. But Taris is no place for a kid to live on her own – even a kid who's got a Wookiee to look out for her.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey, I ain't no kid! And I look out for Zaalbar as much as he looks out for me. Big Z's my friend, not my babysitter! Geez, I come ask you a question and you give me a lecture!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Don't you snap at me, missy! You want a lecture? How's this: only bratty little children fly off the handle because of a simple comment.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Settle down right now – both of you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're not going to take that from him, are you Mission?
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I don't have to listen to you, Carth! You ain't my father – though you're sure old enough to be! So keep your lectures inside your withered old head, 'cause I don't need 'em!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: And I sure as hell don't need this. Let's just drop it and get back to what we were doing.
Mission
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Uh, hey Carth. Can I... can I talk to you for a second?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Are you ready to have a civil chat? Or are is this going to be another childish tantrum?
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Tantrum? I'm trying to apologize, you nerf-herder! Uh... I mean... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get mad at you. It's just that I'm sick of everyone treating me like I'm a helpless kid.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yeah, I know. And I'm sorry about what I said, too. I'm just a little on edge lately. Not surprising considering all we've been through. But I shouldn't take it out on you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It's about time you two made up. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What's with all the apologies? I was hoping for another fight!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Mission, you have to know that we don't think you're helpless. Look where we are, look at what we're doing. You're not just along for the ride. We need you.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: You really mean it, don't you? Nobody's ever said anything like that to me before, not even Big Z. He might think it, but he's not really one for words, you know. Thanks, Carth.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Ah, it's no big deal. I know how it is. Sometimes you just need to hear a few words of encouragement. Kids are like that.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Kids are like that?? Listen you... oh, I get it. Okay, you got me. You're pretty funny, Carth. For an old guy. Come on, you geezer - let's get back to what we were doing.
