Map of the Elder settlement

Trapped on a Nameless World[edit]

Three Elder councillors greet you as you enter. If you haven't already visited the Rakatan Settlement on the north beach:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We of the Elder Council did not expect to see you again, Revan. We thought you had betrayed us. Why have you returned to our village after all this time?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have no clue what you are talking about. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not Revan anymore. That part of me is gone. I'm Name now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Betrayed you? I don't even know you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Your words are confusing. We recognize you: you are the one called Revan. You are the one who came here before - you and Malak, the one who served you. You promised to help us. In exchange for our aid you swore to destroy the ancient evils of our Rakata ancestors! Are you saying this means nothing to you now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. My mind was destroyed. My memories were lost. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sorry, but I don't remember any of this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Hmmm... we do sense something different about you. Something that has changed. You are not the same as you were before. Perhaps your memory has been lost. Yet the power you wield - what you call the Force - is within you still. You can still help us, Revan... if we dare to trust you again.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. This is a little overwhelming. I still don't remember anything. Always 2. [Persuade] You can trust me. But I have some questions for you. Always 3. [Persuade/Lie] You can trust me. But first I have some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: If what you say is true - that you cannot remember when you were last here - then you must have many questions. Ask what you will, Revan, and we will try to help you understand. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Success] If what you say is true - that you cannot remember when you were last here - then you must have many questions. Ask what you will, Revan, and we will try to help you understand.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You could tell me who you are, for starters. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about the last time I was here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We are the Elders, descendants of the Rakata priests who served during the days of the Infinite Empire over 20,000 of your galactic standard years ago. You met us the last time you came here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You arrived with Malak - your servant - three of your galactic standard years ago. We saw your ship plummet to the earth, a victim of the disruptor field that guards this planet. You and Malak both survived the crash, though you were stranded here on our world. And in your search for a way off this planet, you discovered our enclave - just as you did this time. You used the Force to draw the Rakata language from our minds, even as you planted Basic into our skulls so we could help you in your quest to escape this world. We helped you enter the Temple of the Ancients. You and Malak both. And you now, after all this time, you have returned - with your mind wiped clean. Is there anything else you wish to know?

You must ask some questions before proceeding:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I need parts to repair my ship.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Even if you repair your ship, you will not be able to leave this world until you enter the Temple and disable the disruptor field that caused you to crash in the first place. As for the parts you seek, that we cannot help you with. You might be able to salvage what you need if you explore some of the crash sites on this world. But most of the wrecks are quickly raided and stripped by the more primitive and war-like Rakata tribes. Though they do not understand the technology, they hoard whatever they can carry.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Tell me about the Temple of the Ancients.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: There is little I can tell you about the Temple. I know the secrets of our ancestors are contained within, but the Temple itself is barred to us. Only those who can command the Force can enter. Long ago we Rakata had this power, but it has since been lost to us. That was why we helped you the last time you were here, Revan: you could enter the Temple, but we could not.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do a lot of ships crash because of the disruptor field?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Throughout the history of our world many ships have fallen victim to the disruptor field. Most within the ships perish in the crash, though some creatures do survive. That is how the great war beasts you call rancors came to this world. A few of the beasts survived the crash, and they were captured and trained by some of the more primitive Rakata tribes.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I want to know more about you. Tell me about the Rakata. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. More primitive tribes? You mean there are other Rakata?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: There are many Rakata on this world, though most are primitive and war-like tribes descended from the lower castes of the Infinite Empire. The most powerful of all these is the tribe of the One. Many times the warriors of the One's tribe have attacked our compound, hoping to gain the knowledge we guard. But our technology is far superior to theirs, and their attacks have failed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And what about your tribe? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to know more about you, specifically.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We are the Elders, descended from the priest caste of the Infinite Empire. We are the keepers of knowledge and the guardians of the Temple of the Ancients. During the collapse of the Rakata Empire, the warlords unleashed weapons of terrible destruction that threatened to drive our species to extinction. In the devastation's aftermath our ancestors locked the knowledge of such technology away in the Temple so it could never be used again. Ever since then, we Elders have kept our vigil.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So if I promise to help you again, will you help me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Thanks for the information. Looks like I don't need you anymore.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: There you are wrong, Revan. Without our help, you will never be able to enter the Temple of the Ancients. You will be trapped on this world forever. You need us to get past the barrier that protects the Temple's exterior. Only the Rakata can perform the ritual to lower the shields. But we are not so sure we want to help you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We trusted you once before, Revan - and you betrayed us. It is true you can enter the Temple and we cannot, but how can we trust you after last time?

Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The One wants the ancient secrets you protect.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: That cannot happen. The knowledge of the Ancients was that of extinction. If we allow such technology to be unleashed again, it is inevitable that the Rakata will be utterly destroyed. That is why the secrets of our ancestors have been locked away in the Temple. We would give our lives to see that they do not fall into the hands of the One, or any like him. You should know this from the last time you were here, Revan. We explained all this to you then.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. Give me what the One is after or I'll slaughter you all!
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Why do you serve the One, Revan? What lies has he told you to bind you to his will?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He promised to get me inside the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The One does not know how to lower the shields around the Temple! Only we Elders have that knowledge - as you should well know from your last visit, Revan!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Enough talking. It's time for bloodshed!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Guards! Guards! We are under attack!

If you made a deal with the One then this is the first opportunity to attack, although waiting until later gives you the opportunity to gain more experience:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I spoke to you once before? What did I want?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Is this some type of test, Revan? Some type of trick? You came seeking our aid; you came in search of a way to enter the Temple of the Ancients. You claimed to be seeking a way to destroy the Star Forge, and we were foolish enough to believe you. Unaware of your true nature, we helped you enter the Temple. But you betrayed us, Revan. Instead of destroying the terrible legacy of our ancestors you unleashed the evil of the Star Forge upon an unsuspecting galaxy. And now you stand before the Council of Elders once more. And once more we ask you: for what reason have you returned, Revan?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Uh... I need to get into the Temple so I can destroy the Star Forge. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sorry. I have no memory of our last meeting.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Do you think we are fools, Revan? Do you think we have forgotten how you lied to us last time? Why should we believe you now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I see this is going nowhere. I'll just kill you instead!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Guards! Guards! We are under attack!

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. My mind was destroyed, all my memories were lost. It changed me. I am not who I once was.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: They say that the experiences of our past define us and make us what we are. If it is true you have lost your memories, then perhaps you are changed. But how are we to know this is not some trick, Revan?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Enough of this - I am the Dark Lord reborn! Bow before me!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: At last you reveal your true self! Guards: destroy the evil in our midst!

In either case, you need to persuade them to help you:

Dialog
Never 2. [Persuade] I am a servant of the light now. I want to make amends for the mistakes of the past. Never 3. [Persuade] The part of me that was Revan is dead. Now I am Name.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Failure] You say you are not who you once were, yet here on our world you repeat the pattern of your last visit. Like the last time, you have crashed here. Like last time, you have come seeking our help. How have you changed, Revan?
Never 2. [Persuade] The One wanted me to kill you, but I have come here peacefully.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Failure] Again, you are only repeating the patterns from before. You know we hold the secret of entering the Temple. That is why you do not attack us. You come in the guise of a friend, but how do we know you are not going to betray us again?
Always 4. [Persuade/Lie] I regret the mistakes of my past. I want to make amends. Always 1. [Persuade] I rescued one of your tribe from the One. Always 3. [Persuade] I cannot prove what is in my heart. I only ask you judge me by my actions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Success] We sense you mean the words you speak. But words are easy to say; it is actions that prove the true nature of your character. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Success] Yes, your actions seem to show you to be an ally of our cause. But how can we be certain the rescue was not just an attempt to win our trust so you can exploit us? We must discuss this in greater detail. We must have some privacy, Revan. We will return when our deliberations are done. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: [Success] We sense you mean the words you speak. But words are easy to say; it is actions that prove the true nature of your character.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We must discuss this in greater detail. We must have some privacy, Revan. We will return when our deliberations are done.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Trapped on a Nameless World
The Elders have offered to get you inside the Temple of the Ancients if you rescue one of their tribe being held hostage in the camp of the One.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1000 Accepted offer of the Elders

You don't receive this experience if you've already rescued one of their tribe from the One. Otherwise, you may attack if you've made a deal with the One, but you shouldn't (yet):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You must prove to us that you are not the same as you once were, Revan. You must prove that you have changed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Actually, I've decided I'm just going to kill you all!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Guards! Guards! We are under attack!

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How can I prove that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Recently several of our scouts were captured by the One. Most of them were brutally slaughtered, but we have information that one of the scouts is still alive. They will use unimaginable tortures to force the scout to reveal everything he knows about our tribe. And once the One is done with him, the scout will be executed like the others. You must prove you have truly changed by risking your own life to save another. Rescue our scout from the clutches of the One, and we will consider helping you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget it!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: If you do not help us, Revan, then we will not help you enter the Temple. You will be trapped on this world forever.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Maybe I can negotiate with the One to release your hostage. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you want me to go there and kill the One?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We would prefer if you could find some way to save the prisoner without bloodshed, but we don't believe that will be possible. The One does not like to negotiate.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So if I save the prisoner you'll help me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Risking your life to save the prisoner would show us that you are sincere about making amends for the past.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'll be back after I rescue that prisoner!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The prisoner is being held in the chamber of the One himself. Return to us once he is free. Until then you have free run of our enclave.

You can ask them questions about their history, where you can find parts to repair your ship and how to disable the disruptor field that caused your ship to crash:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Okay, I'll help you. But I have some questions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Yes, Revan. Is there something you need? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask you about something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask you some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We will tell you what we can, Revan.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have questions about you: your tribe, your history, the Temple. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have more questions about your history.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You should speak to Osraa, the Keeper of History. He is located near the great computer on the far side of our enclave. But I will do my best to answer your questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about your tribe.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We are the Elders. Our ancestors were the priests of the Infinite Empire, the guardians of the Temple and the keepers of technology. After the Warlords unleashed their weapons of mass destruction and devastated the world, our ancestors knew we could never allow such technology to be used again. We sealed the knowledge of destruction within the Temple, and for the past thousand generations we have kept vigil here, ensuring the knowledge does not fall into the wrong hands.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to learn more about the history of the Rakata Empire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Our history is a long one, but it is also one filled with bloodshed and sorrow. Once the Rakata ruled all the known galaxy, but our Empire was destroyed by our own corruption.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What do you know about the other Rakata here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: There is only one other group of Rakata on this island, the tribe of the One. They would slaughter us if they could, hoping to unlock the secrets hidden away in the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you tried reasoning with the One? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But don't you have the technology to destroy the One?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: When the One first arrived on this island, we sent emissaries under a flag of truce to try and negotiate with his tribe. But all our envoys were brutally slaughtered. We do have the technology to destroy the One and his followers. But if we kill them all, then we will only prove that we have learned nothing over the past 20,000 years. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We have the technology to destroy the One and his followers. But if we kill them all, then we will only prove that we have learned nothing over the past 20,000 years. We tried to negotiate with them. We sent emissaries under a flag or truce when the One first arrived on this island. But all our envoys were brutally slaughtered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The One is mad with power. We choose not to fight him, so our only course of action is to stay here in isolation where we are safe; just as we have done for the past 20,000 years.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. What do you know about the Temple of the Ancients?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The Temple is a sacred place, but also a place of great danger. Within its walls the terrible secrets of our ancestors have been locked away. We ourselves can no longer enter the Temple, Revan. We do not have the power of the Force. But you can enter, with our help.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Can you tell me about the Star Forge?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The Star Forge is a blight upon our world, an orbiting symbol of the failures and horrors of our past. We have long searched for a way to destroy it, and now you finally have given us that chance.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: If you wish to know more about this you should speak to Osraa, the Keeper of History.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know where I can find parts to repair my ship?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You might find these things in the camp of the One, back towards the beach where you first landed. But if you go there, the Rakata will surely attack you. It would be much safer to try and salvage the parts you need from any of the wrecks scattered across the island.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you know how to disable the disruptor field that caused my ship to crash?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The disruptor field is one of the ancient defenses of the Star Forge; a great generator within the Temple of the Ancients fuels it. You will have to enter the Temple to disable it.

Once you've rescued one of their tribe:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Revan, you are back. Our scout has told us of how you rescued him. His injuries are severe, but we believe he will survive. We are grateful for what you have done.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So now you will help me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I've done my part. Now you have to honor our agreement.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Risking your own life to save our scout seems to prove that you have changed significantly since the last time you were here, Revan. But you have deceived us before.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: We must discuss this in greater detail. We must have some privacy, Revan. We will return when our deliberations are done.

Regardless of when the rescue took place:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Revan, you have rescued a member of our tribe from the One at great personal risk to yourself. We believe this action shows you have truly changed since your last visit here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The Council has decided we will trust you once more. For many generations we have sought a way to enter the Temple and discover the means to destroy the Star Forge. But only those who can command the Force - those like you - can enter the Temple of the Ancients. We no longer have that power. That was why we helped you the last time you were here. But you cannot enter the Temple without our help, Revan. Only the ancient rituals of our people can lower the shield for you to enter. You need us as much as we need you, Revan.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Looks like we'll be working together, then.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: For our own sake, and that of the entire galaxy, we hope you truly mean to atone for your past evils. When you are ready, Revan, we will take you to the Temple. But the temple is a place of sacred power. If you are to enter you must do so alone, in the tradition followed by our Rakata ancestors for the past thousand generations.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why do I have to go in alone? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not going into the Temple without help!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: When you were last here we broke the ancient tradition. We allowed you and your apprentice to enter the Temple together, and it brought untold suffering upon the galaxy. We believe you truly wish to destroy the Star Forge this time. But the lesson of the past is not easily forgotten. We will not defile the sacred ritual a second time; only you alone may enter.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Forget it! I'll find my own way into the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You have the power to enter the Temple itself, but you cannot lower the energy shields around it. Only the Rakata can invoke the ritual chant with the proper intonation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll find some other way to enter the Temple!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You can try to enter the Temple without our help, but you will fail. When you are ready to see reason, return to us and we can begin the ritual.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. When I am ready, I will go into the Temple alone. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Okay, when I'm ready I'll go into the Temple alone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Then it is done. You have only to let us know when you are ready to enter the Temple.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Trapped on a Nameless World
The Elders have agreed to help you get inside the Temple of the Ancients. Once inside, you should be able to find a way to disable the disruptor field and get off this planet. You only have to speak to them when you're ready to go in, though in accordance with ancient traditions they have insisted you go in alone.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: You have returned, Revan. Are you ready to enter the Temple now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll be back when I'm ready to enter the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: As you wish. Come speak to us when you are ready to enter the Temple and we will lower the shield for you. But remember: when the time comes you must enter the Temple alone, in accordance with the traditions of the ancient Rakata.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to enter the Temple now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The time has come for you to atone for your past crimes, Revan. But the task ahead will be difficult. Those you call dark Jedi - followers of your old apprentice - now dwell within the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. There's dark Jedi inside the Temple? How did they get in there? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I can deal with them.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: The last time you and Malak entered the Temple you must have found the controls to raise and lower the shields. Those inside can lower the barrier to allow other Force users to enter and exit the Temple. But they will not be able to prevent us from using the ritual to gain you access. Once inside, however, we can do nothing to help you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Elder Councillor: Go to the Temple now. We will meet you there once the ritual has been prepared. Remember: in accordance with ancient Rakata tradition you must enter the Temple alone.

You must now make your own way to the Temple Entrance.

South Beach[edit]

The settlement exit is in the north wall of the lobby at the north end of the Elder settlement. There's a gong by the south wall opposite which you can strike, although it serves no purpose. A passage exits to the east and west, leading around the perimeter of the hub of the settlement.

If you made a deal with the One beforehand then you can speak to any of the three Elder councillors to attack them at any time, although to gain more experience you should activate Rakatan Research and speak to Keeper Orsaa before attacking and killing him to retrieve the ancient tome from his remains.

If you attack, then the Elder councillors summon an Elder elite warrior to the west and an Elder warrior to the east:

Their high natural Force Resistance means that even a level 20 Jedi's Force powers will only breach it 45% of the time, which combined with Immunity: Mind-Affecting makes it unlikely that they can be debilitated before they use their Verpine Prototype Shields: consequently, using Force powers (even (Advanced) Throw Lightsaber) or energy weapons isn't recommended.

Medical items are only received if unused. The passage exiting the lobby to the east and west curves to the south and circles around the hub of the settlement, with entrances to its four quadrants in the inner walls to the east and west. This passage contains four Elder Rakata, and two Elder droids:

Elder Rakata
I wish that we could fully trust you after your long absence, Revan... but I do not know if we can.
The keeper of our history can help you if there is anything you wish to know.
The Council thinks you may help us... I hope that they are right.
The work of our people must go on... to preserve our future.
You promised to help us last time, Revan. I hope that you live up to your word.
Elder Rakata
In time, I hope our tribe can unify our race once more.
The other Rakata assaulted us mercilessly... but our defenses drove them back.
There are many unanswered questions about your last trip into the Temple, Revan... but those shall have to wait.
If you wish to know more about us, speak to our keeper of history.
I hope that you find what you seek in the Temple, Revan, and that you help us as well.

If you attack the Elder councillors or Keeper Orsaa, the Elder Rakata use Quarterstaffs:

The short passage continues to the south, where it ends at the door to the computer room. Keeper Orsaa kneels to the left of this door, on the east side of the passage:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Greetings once again, Revan. I am glad that you have returned. I couldn't believe that you had betrayed us, despite what the Council said.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sorry, I don't remember you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: My name is Orsaa. I am the Keeper of History for the Elders. The last time you were here you had many questions for me. The Council told us all of the destruction of your memories, but still I had hoped you might recall something of our past discussion.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I wish I could remember, but I don't. Sorry. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Look on the bright side: we can have all those discussions again.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: There is no need to apologize. It just pains me to know that all you had learned from me has been forgotten. Still, I would be happy to instruct you again. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Yes, I suppose that is true. As you can imagine, I have few opportunities to share my knowledge with those outside our enclave.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have to go now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Maybe later.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Yes, of course. You have much to do, and little enough time to do it. But if you ever have any questions for me, I will be happy to try and answer them.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're a historian? Maybe I could ask you some questions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Actually, I do have a few questions for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. I want to ask you about something else. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I want to ask you some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Yes, of course. Although you must forgive me if some of this starts to seem familiar. After all, we did go into the history of the Rakata at some length the last time you were here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: I will do my best to enlighten you with the knowledge I hold. What subject do you wish to learn about?

You only receive experience for being told about the beginnings of the Rakata Empire, although you can continue to ask questions about their history:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about the beginnings of the Rakata Empire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Long ago, we Rakata were a great space-faring people. Our ships combined technology and the power of the Force, and we were able to pilot them to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Everywhere we went, we found civilizations less advanced and weaker then our own. But instead of helping them advance, we conquered and enslaved them. Back then, we could still command the Force. That, combined with our advanced technology made our march of conquest irresistible. Soon the Infinite Empire stretched across the entire galaxy. Over time, we lost our ability to use the Force. Some believe we had used the Force for so long that we evolved biologically, and became immune to its effects. In any case, once we lost our sensitivity to the Force our Empire began to fracture. We had to revert to more conventional space travel using inferior technology. Our ultimate collapse was inevitable.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Told about the beginnings of the Rakata Empire
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How did the Rakata Empire collapse?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Long ago the Rakata ruled all the known galaxy; all the species bowed down to us. But we were a corrupt people, and in our fall from glory there are terrible lessons that must be learned. The Infinite Empire was built on slaughter; it was inevitable it should collapse upon itself. War, plague and slave rebellion forced us to retreat back here to our hidden home world. Here, conflict among power-hungry warlords escalated into full civil war. Terrible weapons of mass destruction were unleashed, driving most of the Rakata far beneath the earth for shelter. The devastation ravaged the world. Our people were scattered, our cities levelled, our very existence all but erased. The glory of the Infinite Empire is now nothing but dust and bones. In the past few thousand years small bands of Rakata have begun to return to the surface, but they are primitive and superstitious creatures. Only we Elders remember anything of the true past.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Tell me about the tribe of Elders.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: We Elders are descendants of the holy priest caste of the Infinite Empire, survivors of the terrible weapons unleashed by the warlords during the final collapse of our Empire. Inside the Temple of the Ancients, our ancestors were safe from the devastation that forced the other Rakata to flee underground. We emerged from the Temple to find an empty and ruined land. At last we understood the terrible power of our own technology. To ensure it could never be unleashed upon us again, we sealed the ancient knowledge within the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. What do you know about the other Rakata tribes here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Many centuries ago, the other Rakata began to emerge from the underground warrens where they had sought shelter from the devastation of the warlords. But these Rakata were as violent as the warlords they had fled many millennia ago. After centuries of battle and bloodshed, the tribe of the One has emerged as the strongest of them all. Now the One, lured by half-remembered legends of his people, lusts to possess the terrible power locked inside the Temple. We can never allow that to happen.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you tried reasoning with the One? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can't you just use your technology to destroy the One?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: When the One first arrived on this island, we sent emissaries under a flag of truce to try and negotiate with his tribe. But all our envoys were brutally slaughtered. We do have the technology to destroy the One and his followers. But if we kill them all, then we will only prove that we have learned nothing over the past 20,000 years. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: We have the technology to destroy the One and his followers. But if we kill them all, then we will only prove that we have learned nothing over the past 20,000 years. We tried to negotiate with them. We sent emissaries under a flag of truce when the One first arrived on this island. But all our envoys were brutally slaughtered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: The One is mad with power. We choose not to fight him, so our only course of action is to stay here in isolation where we are safe; just as we have done for the past 20,000 years.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. What do you know about the Temple of the Ancients?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: The Temple is a sacred place of terrible secrets. All the dark mysteries of the Rakata are housed within its stone walls, which pulse with the living power of the Ancients. Only those who can command this power - what you call the Force - can enter the Temple. Many centuries ago there were still a few among us who could pass within its walls. But living in the shadow of the Temple we became desensitized to this power. As you yourself said the last time you were here, we Elders are no longer 'Force sensitive'.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Can any of the Rakata enter the Temple? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So why is there an energy field outside the Temple then?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: None of the Rakata can control the Force now, but long ago there were those who could pass through the barrier. Our ancestors created the energy shield around the building as a second line of defense. But the energy shield was created using technology within the Temple itself. Once we helped you and Malak to get past the barrier, you discovered a way to lower the shields at will from within the Temple itself. After this you had no further need of us. The once hallowed ground of the Temple is now overrun with the followers of Malak who can command the Force: those you call the Dark Jedi.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Can you tell me about the Star Forge?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Much of our knowledge of the Star Forge is lost. It was built during the height of the Infinite Empire, long ago. All we know now is that it casts a terrible shadow across our world. We Elders have longed to destroy the Star Forge for many generations, to cleanse ourselves of its evil presence. But we have neither the knowledge, nor the capability. When you and Malak last came here, we saw you as saviors. We let you into the Temple so you could destroy the Star Forge, but instead you harnessed its dark power for yourselves. You awakened a dormant evil, your fleet helped spread the corruption of the Star Forge throughout the galaxy. And now you return as our last hope to stop what you once started.

You can also ask if he knows how to disable the disruptor field that caused your ship to crash, or where you can find parts to repair your ship:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: Yes, Revan. What do you need?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you know how to disable the disruptor field that caused my ship to crash?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: The disruptor field is one of the ancient defenses of the Star Forge; a great generator within the Temple of the Ancients fuels it. You will have to enter the Temple to disable it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know where I can find parts to repair my ship?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Keeper Orsaa: We do not have what you need, but the tribe of the One often take pieces from the ships that crash onto the planet, though they do not understand the technology they are hoarding. You might find the parts you need in their camp, back towards the beach where your ship first crashed. Or you could try to salvage the parts you need from the wrecks scattered about the island.

If you made a deal with the One then you can attack and kill him to retrieve the ancient tome from his remains before returning with it to the Rakatan settlement on the north beach:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Thanks for the information. I guess I can kill you now! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'm here to kill you all!

This worn manuscript appears to be a collection of historical and religious writings from the height of the Infinite Empire's power. It includes details on a number of rituals sacred to the Rakata.

The computer room contains two wicker footlockers in its northeast corner, a wicker bin by the north wall in its northwest corner and two wicker footlockers to either side of the statue by the south wall, all with random contents. If you use the Rakatan computer facing the door in the center of the room, then a Rakatan hologram appears in the doorway behind you:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: User verification: user species = non-Rakata. Access to auxiliary archives is restricted to Rakata or approved servants. Slaves may not access the archives. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: User verification: User confirmed as authorized non-Rakata. Access to auxiliary archives granted. Welcome back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask you something else.
Always 1. [Persuade] I do serve the Rakata. How else would I learn the language?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: [Success] Logical. User speaks the language of the Rakata in order to serve them. User added to authorized list of non-Rakata. Notice: Further information can be obtained from the main archives within the Temple of the Ancients. Downloading codes to bypass exterior energy field surrounding Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: My archives are ready for information retrieval and download into remote datapad storage. Please select a topic.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I am looking for the secrets of the Ancient Rakata.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... These secrets are locked within the Temple of the Ancients. The Elders sealed this information away to prevent the technology from falling into the wrong hands.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about the Star Forge.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... error. No information on 'Star Forge' detected. Information may be recorded in the databanks within the Temple of the Ancients.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How can I get into the Temple?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... The shields constructed by the Elders to guard the Temple are controlled from the summit of the structure. Anyone inside the Temple may temporarily shut down the shields. There is only one way to gain access to the Temple from the outside. The shields are designed to lower in response to a ritualistic chant detailed in the ancient text held by the Keeper of History. To protect the secrets within the Temple, the chant will only work if spoken by the Rakata; no other species can create the proper intonations that will trigger shield deactivation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I want to know about the history of the Rakata.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... At its peak the Infinite Empire of the Rakata ruled over 500 planets and was comprised of ten billion Rakata and over a trillion slaves scattered across the galaxy. But over time the Empire grew weak and corrupt, and turned against itself. Civil war, slave rebellions and a great plague spread throughout the galaxy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. A plague?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Its origins were unknown - perhaps the creation of an enslaved species, perhaps a mutation of a natural virus. It killed only Rakata, and it spread to every corner of the galaxy. The Infinite Empire crumbled into dust as the Rakata survivors fled back here to their home world, isolated and hidden from the rest of the galaxy. But even hidden here on this forgotten planet they were not safe. Millions died from the deadly plague, many more died in the never ending civil war. The history of the Infinite Empire ended twenty thousand years ago. Now the Rakata are nothing but a few scattered, primitive tribes battling for dominance and control.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Tell me about the Elders.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... The Elders are descended from the Rakata priest caste. When the Infinite Empire collapsed, the Elders isolated themselves on this island, far away from the rest of Rakata society. The Elders hid the secret technology of the Ancients within the Temple, fearing it could be used to bring about the extinction of the Rakata species. Deprived of the knowledge of the Ancients, the other Rakata degenerated into primitive tribes engaged in constant warfare. Only the Elders have preserved the true history of this world.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Tell me about the Temple of the Ancients.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... The Temple is a sacred place of ancient secrets. All the dark mysteries of the Rakata are housed within its stone walls, which pulse with the living power of the Ancients. Only those who can command the Force can enter the Temple. None among the Rakata still have this ability, though the Elders are seeking to breed a Force sensitive being.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 7. How can I shut off the disruptor field around this planet?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Searching... retrieving information... The disruptor field is controlled by a generator within the Temple of the Ancients. Once inside the Temple, the disruptor field and the energy barrier around the temple can both be deactivated.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll be going now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakatan Hologram: Please return should you require further information contained in the auxiliary archives.

Rakatan Research[edit]

The northeast quadrant of the hub of the settlement contains Researcher Ll'awa and two Elder researchers, who hold three Rakatan warriors captive in cages along the northeast wall:

The cage is locked with a strange mechanical contraption. Likely you will need a special key.

Speaking to the warriors suggests releasing them would be inadvisable:

The wrath of the Rakata will consume you all! If we survive, you will all know the wrath of the Rakata! The One will not let the Elders live!

If you speak to the researchers:

Only through our experiments and analysis can our people hope to regain our past. Our work is the most important one undertaken by our people. The future of our tribe rests with us.

You should speak to Researcher Ll'awa:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: You have returned at last, Revan. I was beginning to wonder what had happened to you in the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I don't have time to talk.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Very well then. Come and go as you please.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You know me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Nothing much happened...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: We had met previously when last you entered our enclave, many years ago. You inquired as to my research then as well. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Indeed... Nothing much happened for many years it seems.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: You came here and gained access to the Temple, and were never heard from again. Some thought you might have betrayed us to the others, but they were never able to penetrate our defenses. But if you will help us now, then the time taken is nothing. Is there anything else you require?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What are you doing?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: What am I doing? You mean, the purpose of my research here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What is your research? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why do you have these prisoners? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You know damn well what I'm asking! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about your research again.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Yes, yes, my research.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: As you may have heard from our historians, in our distant past we melded technology and the Force to create truly wondrous effects. We guided ships across the galaxy using our power, and incorporated its use into all aspects of our society. But... something happened somewhere.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What happened? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I've heard this before. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't need to hear this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Yes, likely you have. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Perhaps not, but it is critical to my explanation of my work. When my species began to lose control over the Force, the power we had held over the subject races began to decay, along with our empire. The races we subjugated rose up, plagues swept our worlds... we could do nothing against all these calamities.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: There are a variety of theories on what happened. Perhaps we became immune to the effects of the Force from overuse. Perhaps our breeding habits rendered our species insensitive to it over time. None truly know. The only discernible result was that we could no longer command the Force as we had. Its power had escaped us. With its loss, our technologies could no longer hold us as far above the subjugated races we ruled, and our empire began to crumble. The races we subjugated rose up, plagues swept our worlds... we could do nothing against all these calamities.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: In the end, only the members of our race left here, on our homeworld, survived.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So what is your research then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No Rakata can use the Force?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Every once in a while, there is an individual born who has an affinity for the Force. Maybe not the ability to use it directly, but at least the ability to remain open to it. I believe this is a sign that whatever genes our species had that gave us the ability to use the Force are not completely gone. Perhaps when the ancestors of the current tribes fled beneath the surface, some retained this trait. We have been working for years to isolate this gene in an attempt to resurrect it in our species as well. We of the Elders do not have Force sensitivity ourselves, but by harnessing the genetic structure of other tribes, we hope to be able to breed the gene back into our species.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're capturing prisoners... for their genes? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Why don't you just ask them for help? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're trying to rebuild your genetic structure?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: You make us seem like monsters... Truly we are not. We capture them, yes, but only because the tribes have become extremely xenophobic in their millenia trapped on this world. They would not aid us willingly, and killed our messengers when we asked.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: We believe that if we get a large enough genetic sample, we can reintroduce the recessive Force sensitive genes back into our people, allowing us to once again access the heritage of our past.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Heritage... You mean the Temple?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Yes, the Temple. It can only be entered by those sensitive to the Force, so it has been barred to us for ages. What we may find inside will allow us to lift the other tribes out of the barbarism into which they have fallen and restore us as a productive force in the galaxy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're trying to restore your empire, aren't you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You want to reunite the tribes? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't know how the Republic and the Sith would see you...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: No! We do not want to fall down the path that so twisted our people before. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Unite the tribes and take our place in the galaxy at large. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: That is a worry, but we hope that our good intentions will let them accept us...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: This time, perhaps we can redeem ourselves in the eyes of the galaxy, and become a force of good.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How close are you to finishing your research?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: We are quite far along, having had centuries to work already, but with the arrival of another tribe on our island, we have been restricted in our movements to just our enclave. We have captured a few of their warriors, but the one that really interests us is their leader... the One.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The One? What's special about him? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How can you find these genes? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Do any of these warriors have what you're looking for?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Those with the genes we seek seem to be marked... Marked with a destiny that causes them to rise above others as we did as a species early on. In hearing the stories his warriors tell of the One, we believe that he may hold some of the genes we seek. He may be nearing Force sensitivity. Unfortunately, he and his people are much too aggressive and violent for us to ever get close enough to study him. His corpse would not do either, as only a living, working body is of use to us. Maybe in time, though, the differences between our peoples will lessen enough that we may study one another and gain the information we need.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What kind of information do you need? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How could I help with your research? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't know if your eugenics program is a good thing...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Genetic data on drifts and changes over the many millennia we have been here. Specific data on exceptional individuals. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: We would not revert to our old ways, rest assured, Revan. We merely seek data on genetic drifts and changes in the millenia of our imprisonment here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: If only we had access to the knowledge of our ancestors... They must have known much, much more than us. They had a much greater population sample to work with. I believe that in the Temple there may be the information we seek. Perhaps in old archives or scrolls... maybe even in an ancient computer if any is still functioning. This information would help us greatly in our work, and we would be very grateful to you for it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Is there anything else I can help you with?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What do you know about the Temple?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: It is ancient, that we know. And it is guarded by advanced technology that only Force sensitive races can penetrate. Recently we have seen ships coming and going from it, similar in design to ones that came at about the same time you did many years ago. Other than that, we do not know... although we would dearly like to find out.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Very well then. Come and go as you please.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Rakatan Research
You have discovered that the Elders are researching the genetic history of their people in an attempt to make them Force sensitive again. They believe that this will allow them to peacefully re-enter galactic society.

They think that there may be information stored in the Temple that could help them.

You can retrieve some genetic data from the Ancient Computer in the catacombs of the Temple of the Ancients to receive experience. However, if you made a deal with the One and attack the Elder councillors or Keeper Orsaa beforehand, you won't be able to return it:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: Yes, Revan? Is there anything I can help you with?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have found data on the genetic structure of your species.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: You... you have! Thank you! Thank you, Revan! This data will aid us greatly in our research.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Researcher Ll'awa: You have done our people a great service here, Revan, but your destiny lies elsewhere. May the blessings of the Elders go with you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Rakatan Research
You have given the genetic data you found in the Temple of the Ancients to the Elder Researchers. They are most pleased. They thanked you profusely and you think that this information will advance their research considerably.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1000 Genetic data found in the Temple of the Ancients given to the Elder Researchers

If you speak to the two Elder researchers afterwards:

With the new information we can gain from the Temple, we will be able to complete our experiments! When this new data we gain is assimilated, we shall gain unprecedented advances!
