The view from the door of the Czerka office: the protocol officer stands at its north end, while the Rodian Greeta Holda mans the kiosk by the west wall.

Exit[edit]

The door exiting to Anchorhead is behind you in the east wall, in the northeast corner of the Czerka office.

Sand People[edit]

Upon entering for the first time, you witness the end of an altercation between the Duros conservationist Dayso Cooh and the Czerka protocol officer:

He exits, but remains outside, while the protocol officer remains at the north end of the office:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Protocol Officer: Can I help you? These are the offices of Czerka Corporation. I trust you have business with the company? If this is about employment, I'm afraid all regular mining positions are full. And before you ask, we are also no longer selling hunting licenses.

You need to ask about hunting licenses:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't want to do this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Protocol Officer: Then you are free to not leave the city, just like everyone else. Czerka Corporation will welcome your eventual change of mind. Please, feel free to enjoy the door behind you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
Czerka Corporation has offered to allow you to leave Anchorhead and enter the Dune Sea if you help stop the Sand People from attacking their interests. There is no other way to get permission to enter the Dune Sea.

You have to agree:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
Czerka Corporation has given you permission to enter the Dune Sea on the condition that you stop the Sand People from raiding their mining interests. They want the Sand People chieftain's gaffi stick as proof.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Protocol Officer
  • Hunter's License

This signifies that the bearer may exit Anchorhead to hunt out on the deserts of Tatooine, having acknowledged that Czerka Corporation bears no responsibility for any harm that may come to them.

You can now enter the Dune Sea via the gate at the east end of Anchorhead.

Dayso Cooh[edit]

Upon exiting the office, the Duros conservationist Dayso Cooh approachs you and tells you what's going on:

The following responses end the dialog most quickly:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I will deal with the matter as I see fit.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dayso Cooh: That's what the infuriating Czerka Protocol officer said, but I'm not foolish enough to believe it. Everyone just wants to wipe the Sand People out.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I will deal with the matter as I see fit. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I don't care. Get out of my way.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dayso Cooh: Go on then, but you're just like the Czerka. Shortsighted fool. If you could just talk to them... maybe get a true translation droid... Ah, I'm wasting my time. Go on, get out of here.

Otherwise, you can ask him more about his nonviolent solution:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
Czerka Corporation wants someone to put an end to a community of Sand People that has been attacking their mining interests. An alien conservationist suggested there might be a peaceful solution if a sophisticated translation droid could be taken on the task, but no one leaves the city without Czerka permission, so people will likely just do what the company wants.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
Czerka Corporation is allowing you to enter the Dune Sea on the condition that you stop the Sand People raids, bringing them the chieftain's gaffi stick as proof. An alien conservationist has suggested there might be a better way to stop the conflict if a sophisticated translation droid could be taken on the task.

Such a droid is for sale in the droid shop on the north side of the square at the east end of Anchorhead.

Protocol officer[edit]

You can return to the protocol officer to ask about your agreement and, after purchasing HK-47 and using him to make an agreement with the Sand People chieftain, suggest there may be a nonviolent solution:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
The Czerka have made it clear they are not interested in a peaceful solution to the Sand People attacks. They want you to kill them all.

Neither solution affects your alignment, and most experience is received by making peace with the purchase of HK-47 (250 XP) and later moisture vaporators (400 XP) from Greeta Holda, then breaking it once you've completed the Desert Hunt in the Eastern Dune Sea to prove yourself worthy of their history (250 XP), allowing you to kill the Storyteller instead of a Sand People guard (400 more XP at experience level < 12): that's up to 1300 more XP in total. However, this has a high price: it costs 2500-5000 credits to purchase HK-47 and 200-400 credits to purchase moisture vaporators.

Once you have any Gaffi Sticks to redeem for bounties:

KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 50 * Gaffi Stick (1-47)
KotOR Icon Item(s) Lost.png Item(s) Lost: Protocol Officer
  • Gaffi Stick (1-47)

Redeeming these bounties can be quite lucrative:

Area Dune Sea Sand People Territory Sand People Enclave Total
Gaffi Sticks 9 18-19 19-20 46-47 *
Credits 450 900-950 950-1000 2300-2350 *

* A Sand People guard can be killed in their territory or the enclave, or neither once you've given the moisture vaporators to their chieftain, and there will be four fewer Sand People Warriors in the enclave if Mission's brother Griff doesn't appear there.

Once you have the chieftain's gaffi stick by fair means or foul, you can redeem the bounty to complete this quest:

She can be persuaded to give more if you're skillful enough or you can dominate minds:

Medium 2. [Persuade] For a bit more I could maintain my vigilance in the future.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Protocol Officer: [Success] It would be valuable to have someone on call if the Sand People made another incursion. I think you're right. Yes, here is an additional reward.
High (Dominate Mind) 3. [Force Persuade] You want to give me an additional reward.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 700

Otherwise, if persuasion fails then a threat is never successful and you have to settle for less:

KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 500
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
You brought the Sand People chieftain's gaffi to the Czerka office, fulfilling your agreement with them.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1300 Brought Sand People chieftain's gaffi to the Czerka office
KotOR Icon Item(s) Lost.png Item(s) Lost: Protocol Officer

You can ask her about Czerka Corporation, although you may need to be persuasive to get answers:

You can also ask about anything out of the ordinary happening:

Greeta Holda[edit]

The Rodian Greeta Holda mans the kiosk by the west wall opposite the door:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Greeta Holda: Yes? What is it? If this is about mining or Sand People, you go to the Czerka officers. I just manage the storehouse.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you have available for purchase?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Greeta Holda: Mostly just standard Czerka provisions and supplies. Not enough to keep the locals happy. Have a look.

Upon returning from the Sand People enclave after agreeing to bring the Sand People chieftain moisture vaporators, you can now buy them from him:

He can be persuaded to lower the price:

Medium 1. [Persuade] Czerka's costs, not yours. Who cares about their money? Low (Affect Mind) 2. [Force Persuade] You want to lower the price.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 400 KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 200
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sand People
You have purchased two moisture vaporators from the Czerka office. Take them to the Sand People chieftain in the enclave.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 100 Purchased two moisture vaporators
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Greeta Holda
  • Moisture Vaporators

These devices use a pair of vaporators to condense moisture from the air, albeit in small amounts over a long period of time. Droughts can last for centuries on some desert worlds, so this may be the only means to obtain water.

Exit and return to the docking bay before transiting back to the entrance to the Sand People enclave.

You can ask about bounties and Czerka Corporation:

You can also ask about anything out of the ordinary happening:

Mission's Brother[edit]

The protocol officer knows something about Mission's brother:

KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 20

However, she can always be persuaded to tell using your skill or the Force, so save your credits:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission's Brother
According to the Czerka rep on Tatooine, Griff was captured during a Sand People raid on one of the mining camps. Whether he is still alive is anyone's guess.

Griff now appears in an enclosure on the east side of the Sand People enclave. If you speak to Mission before setting him free:

Once he's free and he and Mission have been reunited, he appears in the northwest corner of the office:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission's Brother
Griff wants you to bring him a tach gland so he can brew up some Tarisian ale to sell to a 'business associate'. He's promised you a healthy reward if you come through for him.

If you speak to Mission before bringing him a tach gland:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You have to stick by your family, Mission. Even if they're slime sometimes. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. No one can teach him this lesson, Mission. He has to learn it himself.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Yeah, I guess you're right. I'm not going to change him. Griff is going to keep on being Griff.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Maybe if we get these tach glands for him things will work out. Or maybe he'll finally see the light and turn over a new leaf. I know it's not likely, but it's all I have to hope for.

Otherwise, you can make her angry at her brother:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Whatever happens, he brought it on himself. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. What do you care? He left you to die on Taris!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: You're right! Griff may be my brother, but he deserted me on Taris. As far as I'm concerned that pretty much breaks any bond we had!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I'm not going to worry about Griff anymore. Like you said, he brought this on himself! Besides, he's always treated me like garbage. Now it's payback time!

In either case she repeats the last line if you try to talk to her about your brother again.

The only place to find tach is on Kashyyyk. Go to the Czerka Hunting Ground in the Upper Shadowlands and speak to Commander Dern to express interest in some work to harvest tach, or simply unlock the center metal box on the southwest side of the Czerka camp and take the three tach glands within, before returning:

KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 200

However, you gain nothing from giving him these credits, so you should not do so:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't need business advice from you, Griff. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. Ask me again and that tach gland won't be the only freshly harvested organ around here!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Griff: Whoa - no need to get violent. I can take the hint. I was just trying to do you a favor, but I see you're not interested.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Griff: It's your loss. I better get started brewing that ale. Meet me back here later and I'll give you a downpayment on what I owe you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission's Brother
Griff rushed off to brew up a batch of Tarisian ale to deliver to his business connection. However, the credits he promised you haven't materialized yet. He did say you could meet him later in the Czerka supply shop on Tatooine to collect the debt.

If you haven't made Mission angry at her brother and you speak to her again:

KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I appreciate everything you've done for Griff. You know that, right? I just hope things work out for him this time around. I guess we'll find out when he meets up with us at the Czerka Corp shop. If he's got those credits he promised you then maybe there's hope for him yet.

However, after exiting and returning, Griff is nowhere to be seen and Greeta Holda has a message for you:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission's Brother
Due to his own incompetence, Griff's Tarisian ale deal has turned sour. True to form, he's decided he'd rather disappear than face the wrath of his contact at the Exchange. You get the feeling both he and the credits he promised you are gone for good.

This completes the quest, but if you haven't made Mission angry at her brother and you speak to her again:

KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I want to thank you for helping me with Griff. You... you did everything you could for my brother. More than most people would have. I know it might look like it didn't make any difference in the end... Griff's in debt and on the run like usual. But at least I know we tried to help him.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Don't give up on him, Mission. He could still change.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Griff's a slime ball, Mission. Accept it.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I know people can change no matter how bad they were. But I'm not holding my breath. None of us is perfect, but I've come to realize that Griff is a little less perfect than most. KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Don't worry, I see all Griff's faults plainly now. None of us is perfect, but I realize he's a little less perfect than most.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I invested a lot in Griff. I'm still looking to get some payback! KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. If I ever see your brother again he's a dead man!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I can't say I blame you. But I'll be honest... I doubt you'll ever see Griff again. I don't even know if I'll ever see him again. Like all good con men he knows how to disappear.
