Map of the grove

Path North[edit]

There are two paths north, one at the west end and the other at the east end, which lead to the respective ends of the Matale grounds.

The east end is closest to the tainted Grove to the southeast which needs to be cleared to complete your third trial. A level 8 horn kath hound wanders the plain to the south:

To the east is a river, with a waterfall to the north. If you approach from the west and you don't want to investigate the case of the Murdered Settler until later, make sure another member of your party is leading when you encounter the Twi'lek Jedi Bolook on the bridge so that he doesn't speak to you.

Grove[edit]

Juhani (22:54)

The tainted grove you must cleanse to complete your third trial is in the southeast corner of the map.

Jedi Trials[edit]

You'll see a fallen Cathar Jedi named Juhani sitting and meditating amidst the pillars of a ruin. As you approach her, she places any party members in stasis and attacks you alone. Prepare for your first ever lightsaber duel!

Juhani only tends to use her Force powers if you run away from her. Although she may use Force Aura, according to Feedback it doesn't add to her defense or saving throws.

If you have character level > 8 and Improved Energy Resistance, this trivializes the energy damage of her preferred lightsaber attacks: only 2/15 or ~13% of non-critical hits will inflict any damage at all, and then only 1-2 on Normal... so if you also have Improved Toughness then even on Difficult only higher critical hits can damage you.

Once you've reduced her vitality by 75% (to 38 or less) by whatever means (although her Master Jedi Defense makes using ranged weapons inadvisable unless she's debilitated), she stops attacking and starts talking:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You... you are strong. Stronger than me, even in my darkness.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What are you doing here? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Why did you attack me?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I am Juhani, and this is my grove. This is the place of my dark power. This is the place you have invaded. When I embraced the dark side, this was where I sought my solace. It is MINE!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You embraced the dark side? Why? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You were a Jedi then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You've been corrupting the kath hounds?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: A better Jedi than you will ever be. More powerful as well, for I could best MY teacher. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Yes... Aren't they pretty? My pets... They like the smell of power I exude. They know their master. I harnessed true power when I struck down my Master, Quatra.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: When I slew my Master, Quatra, I knew I could never go back. And now I revel in my dark power.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Power enough to crush the life from someone such as you... or so I had thought...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The dark side is never powerful enough. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. And I laugh at your pathetic attempt. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You slew Quatra, your Master?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Yes, I struck her down in the middle of training, consumed by my anger, embracing the power of hate! But... it was not enough...
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: *sigh* What is it you want? Why do you bother me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Why are you doing this?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I have fallen and dark power courses through my veins. I can never go back to the Council, so here I shall stay.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was sent by the Council to cleanse the taint from this grove. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I just want to talk.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: The Council has sent you here to kill me? Why, then, when you bested me so easily, did you not simply finish your task? Is it not apparent that I can never be saved? KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Talk?! You who have beaten me so easily just want to talk? I do not believe it. Kill me now, while you still have the power.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I will leave you now.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Flee back to your masters, Jedi.

If you leave her now, or the first time she ends the dialog herself at a later stage without resolution:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jedi Trials
The young Cathar apprentice Juhani is the source of the dark taint permeating the meditation grove. She has fallen to the dark side… although, perhaps not as completely as she believes.
To remove the taint and complete the final trial, you must convince her to release dark feelings… or destroy her and remove the taint forever.

There's no point returning to the Ebon Hawk in the Jedi enclave as none of the masters of the Jedi Council or any other Jedi you've met has anything new to say. You've already had four opportunities to finish Juhani and you'll get two more later in the dialog, all but one of which moves you (much) closer to the dark side of the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -6
4. And I'll finish you now.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I, Juhani, shall be your death!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -6
4. And now I'll take it from you.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -6
4. You shall be the one I crush!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have decided to slay you and remove the taint.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You overestimate yourself, whelp!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -6
6. I suppose there is no hope. I must kill you then.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -6
6. If you can't bring yourself back, then I must slay you.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: What? No! I will not let you take me now!

Any party members will no longer be in stasis, but if you've made it this far you shouldn't need any help finishing her yourself.

You have slain the fallen Jedi Padawan Juhani, and removed the dark taint from the meditation grove.

However, even if you're role-playing a dark side character you may want to redeem her instead: aside from receiving more experience for doing so, she can also join your party later and become a useful ally.

Unless you end her, Juhani will end the ensuing dialog at any time if you don't persuade her or choose the response most clearly inspired by the Jedi Code. You shouldn't try to persuade her if you have no chance of success with medium difficulty checks, and it may get frustrating if you don't have 100% chance of success (there are five checks, three medium and two easy). Otherwise:

Dialog
Medium 1. [Persuade] I have no desire to kill you, Juhani. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I do not hold anger towards you, Juhani. I wish you peace.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Success] You... you do not? KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Not anger, peace... Yet even with your naive attitude you managed to beat me.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I am pathetic. I sit here and think myself to be great by embracing the dark side, but I am nothing! There is no way I could be turned back! I always thought they held me back, were jealous of my power. But it is only because I was not good enough to meet their standards... I never have been.
Easy 1. [Persuade] Come now, Juhani. You are a beautiful young woman who has much talent. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. The first step on the path of true knowledge is knowing that you are ignorant.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Success] I thank you for your kind words, Jedi.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You seem to know just what affects me...
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I seem to still have much to learn... Both about being a Jedi, and about myself. But I wish the cost of my ignorance had not been so high. I wish that my Master had not suffered because of me.
Medium 1. [Persuade] It is not your fault, Juhani. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Even in death, the Force will allow her to live on.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Success] I only wish things could have been different...
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: If she were alive now, there would be so much I would say to her... So much I would apologize for.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I think, in my own way, I truly loved her...
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Oh, how can the Council ever take me back with what I have done? Striking my Master down in anger is unforgivable!
Medium 1. [Persuade] Do not worry, Juhani. They will surely take you back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Anger? Show them that you have freed yourself of this base passion.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Success] I should convince them that I am truly repentant, that I am willing to forsake the dark side. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: If I show them I am free of passion... That I am serene... That I am willing to forsake the dark side.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Maybe, just maybe, they would accept me back. Do you think they would? Could it be possible after what I have done?
Easy 1. [Persuade] Of course it would. They would always accept you back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Your inner peace and harmony will show them your sincerity.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Success] I... I thank you, master Jedi. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I... I thank you, master Jedi.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I will return to the Council, then. I shall submit myself to their judgement, and hope that they will forgive me.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: If only there was some way I could make this up to you...
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Again, I thank you. I am sure I will hear great things about you in the future.

She runs off to the northwest. Failing to persuade her, or choosing any of the following responses, will result in her ending the dialog. Fortunately if you make a mistake then you don't always have to start all over again: after every two successful responses, you aren't obliged to backtrack any further.

Dialog
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: *sigh* What is it you want? Why do you bother me?
Medium 1. [Persuade] I have no desire to kill you, Juhani. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're right, maybe I should. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I wasn't really ordered to kill you.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Failure] Lies! Leave me and come back when you have the courage to finish your task! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Thinking of using technicalities to do the deed and ease your conscience?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Act or begone!
Easy 1. [Persuade] Come now, Juhani. You are a beautiful young woman who has much talent. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why are you even thinking like that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Maybe you shouldn't have been a Jedi, then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Standards cannot apply to everyone.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Failure] You think compliments will convince me I didn't kill my master? Leave me to my agony! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Why? Because I am right, that's why! I can see the truth in your eyes as well! Do not look at me again! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: They came to me! They sought me out! So it is their failure that I have fallen. Come back when you have something more meaningful to say. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: What?? What foolishness is this? Standards are MADE to apply to everyone. And if I cannot measure up to them... Well then, I am no one at all… Leave me.

Once you've made two successful responses, you don't have to repeat them if you're then unsuccessful:

KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I do not know what to do. Now that I have caused such suffering to my Master and those around me...
Medium 1. [Persuade] It is not your fault, Juhani. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Life is a learning experience. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Your master knew the risks. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Life is suffering.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Failure] It is! It is! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: But learning does not have to end in death! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: She knew I would be headstrong, but she also thought I would adhere to the light! Instead, I betrayed her trust and fell prey to my own inner darkness. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Life is suffering, yes... but it was by my conscious choice!
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: It was I who hurt her, I who killed her! Her suffering is my fault alone! Leave me to my pain!
Medium 1. [Persuade] Do not worry, Juhani. They will surely take you back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. The Council may forgive a lot. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Heh. Your Master surely won't be forgiving you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Yet forgiveness must be asked.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: [Failure] The Council may forgive a lot... But not this. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: The Council may forgive a lot... But not this. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You... You monster! To mock my grief that way! Leave me at once, lest I strike you down! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: And denied! No, I cannot! And so here I will stay. Leave me to my hopelessness!
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I am lost! Even though I would repent, there is nowhere left for me to go! Leave me to my hopelessness! KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: How can I ever face the Council now with what I have done? It is hopeless! It could not be possible that they would accept me back...

Once you've made four successful responses, you don't have to repeat them if you're then unsuccessful:

Easy 1. [Persuade] Of course it would. They would always accept you back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It might be. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Unlikely... But it's worth a shot. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I do not know.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: The Council may forgive a lot... But not this. I am lost! Even though I would repent, there is nowhere left for me to go! Leave me to my hopelessness!

Once Juhani is slain or redeemed to remove the taint from the grove, your final trial is complete. Before leaving, search the remains of a Mandalorian at the base of the front pillar on the right, and those of another between this pillar and its neighbor:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Remains KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Remains

It's quickest to return to Ebon Hawk, then transit back here later. The reception you receive upon your return from Nemo in the courtyard outside the enclave, and Belaya and Masters Vandar Tokare and Vrook Lamar within, depends on how you chose to remove the taint from the grove. If you redeemed Juhani:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nemo: I hear you managed to return Juhani to the Order. Congratulations. I regret not being able to tell you more, but some things you must see with your own eyes.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: You have done a great thing. One of our own had strayed, but you have returned Juhani to the Order. For this you deserve the highest praise.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: I must congratulate you on your actions. You have saved Juhani and brought her back into the Order, and have given us all great hope for your future success. May the Force be with you as you continue your training.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: It is good to see Juhani has returned to the way of the light. You are to be commended for your role in this. Your actions give us great hope for the future. Go to Master Zhar and inform him that Juhani has returned to us. I think you may be nearing the end of your apprenticeship.

Juhani herself now stands to the northeast in the inner courtyard. You can speak to her now, although you may want to wait until you've spoken to the Jedi Council and Bastila has become available again to explore all dialog options:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I must give you my thanks. Because of you, I am once again welcome within the Jedi Order.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you spoken to the Council? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Did you learn anything more about Quatra?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I Have spoken to the Council, and they have helped me see the truth. The truth about myself, and the truth of my actions.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Quatra's injuries were not so severe as I first believed. I was foolish to believe I could harm a Master such as she with my... my clumsy efforts. The fierce confrontation between us was nothing more than a part of my training. Quatra wanted me to understand the threat of the dark side, to see how easy it was to fall from the path of light.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's pretty harsh... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. The ways of the Jedi are strange indeed. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So where is Quatra now?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Quatra's methods may seem strange, but I trust her wisdom. The lesson has been difficult, but I am better because of it. Humility is never easy to teach, but now I truly understand my own limitations.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: You can't expect everything to get handed to you on a silver platter.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: After our last battle, Quatra had nothing left to teach me. I needed time alone to explore the turmoil of my own spirit. Only then was I ready to follow a guide – you – back to the light. When I left, Quatra knew her work with me was done. There are other disciples who need training throughout the galaxy, and she could not stay to see if I passed this most difficult trial.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm just glad I could help. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's pretty harsh... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So where is Quatra now? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. The ways of the Jedi are strange indeed.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: With your help, I have passed this difficult trial. The Council now feels I am ready to continue with my training, though they have asked me to wait here for the time being.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey, I'm glad to see you're not getting hung up on all this. The past is in the past, you know?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: First the Jedi trick you into becoming an enemy, then they welcome you back as a friend. I can't say I approve of their training methods.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: You have been given another chance to prove yourself. I hope you use it well.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Giving you a second chance like this is a clear sign of weakness. Sometimes I find it hard to believe the Jedi could defeat my people in battle.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: This has been a painful lesson, Juhani, but it seems you have learned it well. I am certain you will be a credit to the Order.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I do not know what the Council has in store for me, but I will trust in the Force and the way of the Jedi to help me through whatever is to come.

She repeats this if you speak to her again before speaking to the Council after completing your investigation of the Ruins.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jedi Trials
Juhani has been accepted back into the Enclave while the Council debates her case. It seems that redemption can come even to those who have fallen so far.

If Juhani is slain to remove the taint from the grove, unsurprisingly everyone questions your choice:

Nemo
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nemo: Juhani has been slain, I hear. You fought with her in the grove?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. She attacked me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. She had been turned to the dark side! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. She deserved to die.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nemo: Even in the darkest heart there is hope for rebirth. Anyone can be turned back to the light. Anyone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nemo: It should not have had to go that far... but some things cannot be avoided. You would do well to mind Juhani's tragic example and not to let yourself fall into the sway of the dark side.
Vrook Lamar
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: I have heard what you have done, and how Juhani has been slain. I had hoped that this would not have to come to pass. Could you find nothing in Juhani that could be redeemed?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I could not see a way to save her. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Lie] She didn't give me a chance. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. [Lie] She was too far gone to the dark side.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: I am skeptical of your methods and your intentions. But if nothing could be done, them that is the way of things. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: [Success] I am skeptical of your methods and your intentions. But if nothing could be done, them that is the way of things.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: Keep in mind the danger of the dark side, lest you fall into its grasp.
Vandar Tokare
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: It is most regrettable that Juhani could not be saved. We in the Council had high hopes for her in the future. In every heart there is some means of redemption. Could you find none in Juhani?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I couldn't see a way to save her. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Lie] She attacked without speaking. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. [Lie] She was too evil to ever come back.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: Perhaps that was the case. It is most regrettable, indeed. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: [Success] Perhaps that was the case. It is most regrettable, indeed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: Heed her example: all are susceptible to the lure of the dark side. We must always remain vigilant against it. Go to Master Zhar and inform him that the Grove has been cleansed. I think you may be nearing the end of your apprenticeship.

Belaya in particular finds it unacceptable:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: Juhani was a... a dear companion to me for many years. We spent many nights together alone under the stars. That will never happen again, thanks to you. Curse the Council for sending you, of all people, to speak to her! Could you have done nothing else?!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. She had it coming, trust me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Should you be talking like that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I did my best. I'm sorry. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Why didn't you go to her, then?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: She had it coming, did she? She had it coming?! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: Do not presume to tell me how I should speak of anything! They should have known better than to entrust such a task to you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: Pardon me if I find your apology rather disingenuous. Juhani meant nothing to you, and the Council should have known better than to entrust her life to you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: Why? Because the Council believed that my closeness to her might do more harm than good... and yet they send *you*, instead? And look what has happened.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: The Juhani I knew deserved more than this! She deserved more from the Council, and more from you! You... you did not even try, did you? Did it even occur to you that Juhani might have been saved? That she might be worth saving? I should kill you for what you've done! And yet I can't, can I? I am a Jedi, and we are sworn to protect all... even the likes of you. Get... get out of my sight! The very thought of the Council... and of you... makes me ill.

She exits the enclave, never to return. You can ask Master Vandar about this if you speak to him again after being accepted into the Jedi Order as a Padawan but before completing your investigation of the ruins:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to ask you some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: A Jedi must ever be seeking knowledge. What is it you wish to know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. What happened to Belaya?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: We do not know. She was training here until your unfortunate incident with Juhani, then she simply disappeared... We would like any word of her you may bring. I do not believe she has died, or fallen prey to beasts, but I worry that she may have done something rash. She had always been close to Juhani, and her death may have hit Belaya... hard. Is there anything else you wish to ask?

You can also ask Master Vrook about this after completing your investigation of the ruins and reporting to Master Vandar:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What happened to Belaya?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: The Jedi Belaya would seem to have disappeared. She had a lesson scheduled with Master Zhar but did not show up. I have heard someone say that she had been seen leaving the Enclave, but I do not know where she would have gone. If you meet her, you may want to ask her why she left. We do not force anyone to stay here, so do not think to take that route. Is there anything else, then?

This won't be the last you see of Belaya...

Speak to Crattis Yurkal again to get one chance to move closer to the dark side of the Force:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: Welcome to my shop, feel free to look around. Take a break from the trials of Jedi training. Speaking of which, I hear you've heard about the kinrath caves - the lightsaber crystal caves.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How did you know that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, you must have me confused with someone else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: I have my sources. Anyway, I've got a little proposal for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: Sorry, my mistake. But if you were going, hypothetically speaking, I'd have a little proposal for you. Hypothetically, of course.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: Those kinrath caves are crawling with crystals. Valuable crystals. Sure, the Jedi use them to make their lightsabers. But it's not like they need them all, right? I'd pay very handsomely for any crystals that happened to end up in my eager hands.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I doubt the Order would approve of such a transaction. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Could I get in trouble for this? KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
3. It's a deal!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: It's not like you have to tell the Jedi Council what you're doing. And it's not like anyone's going to miss a few extra crystals, right? Anyway, think about it.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: Bring me those crystals here and I'll buy them from you, no questions asked. You might want to keep one for yourself, though. You'll need it for your lightsaber.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Ha! Good to see things in this Jedi enclave work just like they do out in the real world. Everyone's looking out for number one.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: He makes a good case. It's not like you'd be stealing or killing anyone or anything.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm not an expert on the Jedi, but this seems like the kind of thing that could get a person into a lot of trouble. KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: This doesn't seem like an honorable thing to do. It feels wrong to me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: What's the big deal? It's not like you'd be hurting anyone. There's plenty of crystals in that cave, so what's the harm in giving me a couple?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: You wouldn't be the first, you know. I don't think the Jedi Council approves, but they don't make a big deal about it. They've got more important things to worry about.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: But enough of this. I'm sure there's another reason you came in to my shop. What can I do for you?

This dialog is only an option after Juhani is redeemed or slain, but before formally completing your training by speaking to Master Zhar Lestin again, who still stands in the training room to the north of the Council chambers, waiting for you:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: You have done well, my pupil. The ancient grove has been purified, and Juhani's journey down the dark path has been halted. Because of you she walks once more in the light. But though she was saved, do not dismiss what happened to her. Juhani is both dedicated and true to the ideals of the Order, yet she was still vulnerable to the dark side. As are we all. She struck her master in anger during training, and injured her greatly. But it was Quatra's choice to test Juhani this way, and it seems to have made its point. Juhani has been redeemed, and you have passed your final test. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: You have cleansed the grove of its dark taint, but at great cost. Juhani was a most promising student and could one day have been strong in the Force. Do not dismiss what happened to her, however. Juhani was both dedicated and true to the ideals of the Order, yet she was still vulnerable to the lure of the dark side. Keep this in mind always in the future, and do not forsake the path of the light.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: Congratulations, apprentice. Or should I say congratulations, Padawan? You have proven yourself worthy of joining the Jedi. Let me be the first to welcome you as a full-fledged member of our Order!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jedi Trials

Jedi Council[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Jedi Council
Now that you have been accepted as a Padawan, the Jedi Council might tell you more about the bigger picture and what you must do.

Master Zhar returns to the Council chambers, rejoining the rest of the Jedi Council of Dantooine:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: I have nothing left to teach you, Padawan, though a Jedi is ever learning. Even the Masters know their training is but in its infancy. Now is the time for you to seek wisdom outside the training chambers. The lessons that yet await you are to be found beyond the walls of this academy. You should speak to the Council, Padawan. Now that the first stage of your training is complete I am certain they would be eager to have you aid us in our struggle against Darth Malak and the Sith.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: For good or ill, you are now a true Padawan. The time has come for you and Bastila to investigate the dream you shared. The secrets to stopping Malak may lie hidden within the ancient Dantooine ruins you both saw in your visions.

If you speak to the Jedi Belaya or Deesra elsewhere:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: Master Zhar tells me you have successfully completed the tests, and I even see you have constructed your own lightsaber. You should be proud of your accomplishment… but never forget that you still have much to learn. As your power grows you will constantly face temptations to slip to the dark side. This is the eternal struggle of the Jedi.
Deesra
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Deesra: I hear that Master Zhar feels you are now ready to become a full fledged member of our Order. Congratulations, apprentice. Or should I say Padawan? It brings me great joy to see another who has joined our Order, particularly in these trying times. The path of the light is a difficult one to walk, and many have fallen into the darkness. But I am certain you will not be one of those. So, Padawan – what can I do for you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask you some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Deesra: If you have questions you should speak with Master Dorak. He is the Chronicler of the Academy here on Dantooine, and is far more knowledgeable than I.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll be going now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Deesra: Then may the Force be with you.

You must speak to Master Vandar Tokare, and he and the rest of the Council will order you to investigate the Ruins (which is mandatory) and the Sandral-Matale Feud (which is not).

Murdered Settler[edit]

A river runs through the grove from north to south, crossed by a bridge. The approach from the west end is unoccupied, but to the east the plain is divided by a belt of trees and stones, in which there are a level 9 horn kath hound and two level 3 kath hounds between the central tree and stones by the west wall.

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received: KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

There are also two level 6 kath hounds with 9 attack and 4-13 damage, one lying between some stones and a tree to the south and the other lying at the base of a tree by the east wall.

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

Standing on the bridge is an orange Twi'lek male Jedi named Bolook. If you don't speak to him as you cross, he only speaks to you if you're the party leader (so if you want to complete this quest later, make someone else party leader):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Apprentice, your arrival here is well timed. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Padawan, your arrival here is well timed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What do you want?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I am Bolook, a Jedi from the Enclave. I was sent by the Jedi Council to investigate a killing that took place here a few hours ago. Communication does not pose a problem, as both the suspects and I speak Basic and Huttese. I was going to handle this case myself, but now that you are here this could be an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate how well you have been learning your lessons at the academy. Though you are not yet a full Jedi, perhaps you could assist me in sorting out the truth from the lies.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Sorry, I do not have time for this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: We Jedi are often called on to make judgements in cases such as this. I think exploring this case could be an important part of your training, though I will not force you to participate. If you are not willing to assist me, then I will bring the suspects to the Enclave and handle this myself. But are you certain you wish to pass up this opportunity to test yourself?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't have time to assist you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Get out of my way, worm-head!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I regret that you feel that way. I must remove myself and the suspects to the Enclave then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I find your demeanor most unbecoming in a prospective Jedi. I think that your mentors have perhaps been lax in your training. I regret that you feel you cannot assist me. I will remove myself and the suspects to the Enclave for judgement. May the Force be with you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Good day to you, apprentice. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Good day to you, Padawan.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Murdered Settler
Bolook has taken the two suspects in Calder's murder back to the enclave, though it was obvious the Jedi was disappointed by your inability to solve the case.

Bolook leaves, running off to the west. Otherwise, if you agree to assist him:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have reconsidered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Ah, that is good. Perhaps then, we can get to the bottom of this mystery.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you want me to do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Listen to the stories given by the two suspects. I have brought an information retrieval droid with access to the archives both at the Jedi Enclave and the planetary capital. I will use my wisdom and experience to offer you some guidance, but I will not solve the case for you. There is little benefit if you do not solve this problem yourself. Consider each man’s account and check the facts with the information droid. Once you have gathered all the evidence you think you need, run through the possible scenario with me. If you are unable to come to a satisfactory resolution, then I will take these men to the Enclave and deal with this myself.

You move to the west bank, where you now stand amidst Bolook to the southwest, the information droid to the northeast, Rickard Lusoff to the northwest and Handon Guld to the southeast:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: According to the accounts of the participants, these three men were out here in the field together earlier, before the clouds broke. I find that very odd, for most people would seek shelter indoors when the sky is filled with dark stormclouds as it was earlier today. But that is not the most puzzling aspect of the case. The dead man, Calder Nettic, was shot in the back with a blaster rifle. A rifle was found lying near his body with blood stains on it. It has been sent back to the Enclave for analysis. Two other men were found at the scene when I arrived. One was Handon Guld. He was unarmed. The other was Rickard Lusoff, who was carrying a hunting laser. Both men say they did not do anything, and that they came across the body. But both also accuse the other. Obviously there is more to this than what we have been told.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is there anything else I should know? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I will begin my investigation at once.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: There is one last thing. When I arrived Handon was holding his side and Rickard was favoring one of his legs. You would do well to remember this as we progress through the case. If there is anything else you need, I will remain here while you question the witnesses.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Murdered Settler
You have been approached by a Jedi, Bolook, who requires your assistance in resolving a complicated crime he has encountered. He hopes your understanding of human nature can clarify the contradictory statements of the witnesses at the scene.

If you try to leave, Bolook comments on it:

You may leave if you wish, but if you do I will have no choice but to tell the Jedi Council that you lacked the wisdom to solve this case.

If you leave the area now, all will be gone when you return. The murdered settler lies to the east, by the river bank:

The body of Calder Nettic. He was apparently shot from behind with a blaster.

If you speak to Bolook again then he can tell you what happened here again, or you can tell him that you cannot resolve the case:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes? Is there something I can do to help you in this investigation?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Tell me what happened here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: According to the accounts of the participants, these three men were out here in the field together earlier, before the clouds broke. I find that very odd, for most people would seek shelter indoors when the sky is filled with dark stormclouds as it was earlier today. But that is not the most puzzling aspect of the case. The dead man, Calder Nettic, was shot in the back with a blaster rifle. A rifle was found lying near his body with blood stains on it. Two other men were found at the scene when I arrived. One was Handon Guld. He is unarmed. The other is Rickard Lusoff, who was carrying a hunting laser. I have confiscated the laser. Both men say they did not do anything, and that they came across the body. But both also accuse the other. It is most perplexing. When I arrived at the scene, Handon was holding his side and panting, and Rickard was favoring one of his legs.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I cannot resolve this case.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Are you certain? It would be beneficial to your training if you were to at least make the attempt. By assisting me with this case you may learn much about how well you have learned the wisdom of the Jedi... or how much further you have yet to go.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: We should assist Jedi Bolook as best we can. KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: We should provide what help we can. Surely it is not that difficult to ascertain the truth.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: If you give up now, I will take these men to the Enclave and deal with this myself. But you will have missed out on an excellent opportunity.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I cannot resolve this case. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I said I can't do it, dammit!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well. I will take these two suspects to the Enclave and judge this case myself. May the Force be with you.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to discuss the murder. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I will continue my investigation. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have reconsidered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: You should speak to the witnesses and the information droid before we try to figure out this puzzle. You will need the facts if we are to continue. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: When you have gathered all the information you need, come back to me and we can try to determine what happened. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Good. We Jedi are often called on to rule in difficult cases such as these, yet if we do not have experience with them our wisdom is of little use. Speak to the witnesses and the information droid, then return to me when you have the pertinent facts.

However, there's no point discussing the murder until you've spoken to the witnesses (you don't need to speak to the droid yet):

Handon Guld
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Ah, greetings. You must be assisting Master Bolook in his investigation. I am Handon Guld, perhaps you've heard of me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Should I have? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. [Lie] Ah, yes of course, Mr. Guld.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Um... I guess, under the circumstances, no. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: [Success] Really? *Ahem* Well, then, I assure you on my reputation I had nothing to do with the killing. I will help you with the case as best I can, though.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Well, I presume you wish to hear my story then? I shall tell you, of course, but there is not much to it. I am sure that you'll agree that Rickard is quite obviously guilty of murder.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: You see, I was out here running earlier today - yes, running, I do that a lot. Can't stand speeders, never use them. Keeps me in shape too, you know! Anyway, I was out running on the other side of that bridge there... When all of a sudden I heard a shot coming from over here. I ran over and found this man Calder lying on the ground dead!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you see the killer? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Go on.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: I saw Rickard come skulking out of the shadows of the rocks south of the river, and I knew something was wrong. I hit my emergency button and called the Enclave right away. Well... there, that's my story. Now please hurry this up and arrest Rickard so I can get on with my day!

That's all you need, but you can speak to him again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask you something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: How can I be of further assistance?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What did you see happen?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Actually, I didn't see anything. I was over across the bridge, I heard a shot and came over. I can tell you I was sure surprised to see Calder's body lying there! I just got here when I saw Rickard coming out of the rocks, holding his blaster! I was terrified! I had no idea what he was going to do so I hit my emergency button and called the Enclave. Master Bolook came out here with his droid and started questioning us. I think he really doesn't understand what's going on. I hope that you'll be able to make a more informed decision and get me out of here soon. I have things I have to do!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why were you out here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: I was taking my daily constitutional. I just happened to be running by when I heard a shot. I ran over and found Calder's body lying there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you often run around the plains?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Yes, quite often. I generally prefer running to anything else. Can't stand speeders. A healthy body will breed a healthy mind, as I always say! Ha ha!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're holding your side. Are you injured?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: In... injured? No, of course not! Why would I have been? Fit as a bantha! Har har! Yes... I run. I don't know if I mentioned that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Nothing more right now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's all for now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Of course, of course. Listen, if you need anything I shall be glad to assist.
Rickard Lusoff
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Another Jedi, eh? Helping that Twi'lek investigate, no doubt. He seems stumped. I'm Rickard Lusoff. Maybe you can figure this out and let me get out of here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me what happened.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Well, I was out hunting iriaz, when I spotted one over here by the bridge. I pull out my rifle and aim at it. I couldn't see it that well, mind you, cause the damn sun was in my eyes. So I shoot it and it drops. I walk over here and find Handon standing over Calder's body! So why don't you get this whole farce over with and send that whiner Handon to the prison he belongs in!

That's all you need, but you can speak to him again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask you something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: So what do you want to know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What did you see happen?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Well, I was out hunting iriaz south of here, and I saw one over by the bridge. The sun was pretty much right behind it though, so I couldn't see it none too clearly. I shot, and when I came over here I found Handon standing over the body, holding his side. There wasn't an iriaz in sight... I think he might have taken it! Calder must've been hunting it himself 'cause there was a rifle lying close to the body. Bolook's got that now... mine, too. I want that back!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why were you out here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: I told ya already, didn't I? Was hunting some iriaz. Haven't seen many in the area recently, what with those kath hounds acting up, but they're still around. Was in my blind a little south of here when I spotted one, like I said before. I shot and POW!, it went down. But when I come over here, there's Handon standing over the body and the iriaz was gone! Now, I didn't have nothing to do with this, so can I go now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Not just yet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: *grumbles* So what do you want to know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Bolook said you were limping. Are you hurt?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Well... uh... I kind of sprained my ankle running through the bush before I found the body. But it's nothing that serious.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Nothing more right now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's all for now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Right...
Information Droid
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: Greetings, apprentice. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: Greetings, Padawan.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: You must be the one Master Bolook has enlisted to help him with this problem. I am an information retrieval droid. I can assist you by accessing the records of both the Jedi Enclave and the central government facilities here on Dantooine. If you have any need of my services, please do not hesitate to talk to me. I have already retrieved some information from the archives on Calder Nettic, Rickard Lusoff and Handon Guld. I have also had time to examine the body of Mr. Nettic. Is there any information you require?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What did you find out about the body?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: My preliminary analysis of the body indicates that he was killed approximately 3 hours ago by a single energy blast to the torso.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about these plains.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: These plains are rife with wild animals, not all of them benign. The iriaz are mostly docile, but can easily be provoked to violence. Kath hounds, on the other hand, are much more deadly... There have been over 35 catalogued attacks on settlers by kath hounds in the last 2 weeks. A general advisory was given out three days ago to carry a weapon at all times when on the plains. Small farms and holdings dot the plains, and can provide safe refuge for those in need.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: Is there any other information you need?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I will have more questions later.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: Very well. I will be here to assist you.

After speaking to Handon and Rickard once, you can discuss the murder with Bolook:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to discuss the murder.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well. We should start at the beginning. If we find the truth behind each piece of the puzzle, we will no doubt resolve the case. Handon said that he was nearby and heard a shot and ran over, only to find Calder already dead. He said Rickard came out of the shadow of the rocks holding a blaster in his hands. Rickard said that he was hunting iriaz, saw one through the glare of the sun and shot at it. It is possible that Rickard may have shot Calder accidentally and Handon may have found the body, but that seems a very unlikely explanation. It is more likely that at least one of them is lying.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Actually, I reconsidered. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I know who is lying now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well, I believe there may yet be a chance of you solving this. Where does the truth lie?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Obviously one of these men is not telling us something, but where does the truth lie?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I do not know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Perhaps you should examine the witnesses' stories more closely. Also, you can always speak with the information retrieval droid to gain access to data from the Jedi Enclave that pertains to the case.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Handon is lying.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fat people always lie. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He didn't mention the weapon found by the body. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. He was here at just the right time.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You should try to remain objective in this. KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Don't be absurd. Can't you be serious? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Heh heh... that's sort of funny, but you should really be serious about this, no? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: True, he didn't mention it, but he didn't deny it was there either. It simply had no bearing on the question as asked. I do not believe this is definitive evidence. What he said was not directly false. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It does seem very convenient that Handon was in the area at exactly the right time. But stranger coincidences have been known to happen. I do not believe this is definitive evidence. It could be simple chance.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: That... is a novel assumption. The degree of corpulence in an individual has not been scientifically linked to honesty and I find your adherence to that belief... remarkable. It does not, however, constitute evidence.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Rickard is lying.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. There are no iriaz for him to hunt here. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. He was being rude to me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: There are plenty of iriaz on the plains here. As a Jedi, you should be more aware of your environment. One only has to observe the surroundings to notice them. I do not believe this is definitive evidence. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Rudeness and anger are signs of the dark side, and can indeed lead down the path to murder. But they are not indicative. They do not prove he has done anything. I do not believe this is definitive evidence. It appears to be a reaction to his attitude, not to the facts of the case.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: If you are unable to deduce the facts of this case, I will have to take these men to the Enclave and deal with this myself. But since you have talked to the suspects, there is no harm in you trying a bit more.

To progress you need to say Rickard is lying, for the following reason:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It was cloudy; there was no sun glare!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, well done! It was very cloudy this morning. If it had happened as Rickard said, the sun would not have been visible at the time of the killing. You seem to have caught Rickard in a bit of a lie. It seems I was correct in assuming you could help me with this case. This lie doesn't prove Rickard is guilty, but I think you have taken the first step in unravelling this mystery.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: We should proceed on to the next point. We need to find a motive for the killing. Maybe you should talk to the men about their relationship with the victim. If there is anything else you need, I will remain here while you question the witnesses.

The preceding paragraph is repeated if you try to speak to him before the droid tells you about Calder and both men (or one man, and you speak to the other), or you speak to Handon and Rickard again:

Information Droid
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What can you tell me about Calder and Handon?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: The Southwood speeder rental business has records that, over the past several weeks, a speeder had been rented by Mr. Nettic and Mr. Guld.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What can you tell me about Calder and Rickard?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: According to the municipal authorities near the Garang spaceport, there had been news of violent drunken activity in a cantina attached to the port. Apparently a Mr. R. Lusoff was making accusations at a Mr. C. Nettic about cheating him in a business deal. Jedi Tooka was dispatched to the scene and restored order.
Handon Guld
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you know the victim?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: I knew him a little bit, but I was not any sort of great friend to him or anything. I never really associated with him that much. In truth, I didn't really want to. He had a... reputation. Very inconsiderate of family, I heard. But merely having heard unkind things about someone wouldn't make me want to kill him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why would someone want to kill him?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Um... well, you see, Calder was involved in some pretty sordid business from time to time. More often than not, I've heard. Disreputable business practices, even more disreputable clients. I've even heard he had dealings with... a Hutt! A Hutt here on Dantooine! Now I bet you're wondering if I had any reasons to kill the man, but I tell you I hardly knew him! Saw him once or twice, yes, and I have heard some pretty unkind things about him, but... Certainly nothing that would make me want to kill him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No one says you killed him... yet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: I'm sorry, I'm... I'm getting a bit agitated. Why must we remain here? Can't... Can't you see that Rickard must have shot him?

Once the droid has told you about Calder and Handon:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You knew Calder better than you admit. You rented a speeder with him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: But I... I realize this must seem like a motive to you, but I assure you it isn't. I dislike Calder, true. I would punch his face in, given the opportunity. But I would not kill him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Punch his face in? Why? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You better come clean! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I want the truth - now!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: My wife was cheating on me with him. They slept in my own bed while I was in the next room!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You wanted to kill Calder for having an affair with your wife! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Liar! You wanted to kill him for having an affair with your wife!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Knock his block off, sure, but not kill him! Oh my... I hope you don't find that incriminating... Normally I am not prone to outbursts like that, but Calder... Mr. Nettic, he was not a very nice person. Not a very nice person to me or my family. I had had my suspicions for several weeks, but had no proof until two days ago. It seems Calder was seeing my wife. Right under my nose, no less!
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Well, if you can't keep her, it's your own fault.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: She may have had her reasons, Mandalorian!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: But... as much as I may hate him for that, I could not kill him. It may have been my own fault for driving my wife away. I must try not to take the law in my own hands. I was just out running, trying to clear my head for the divorce proceedings, not stalking him to kill him. Running is not a crime.
Rickard Lusoff
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you know the victim?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Yeah, I knew him. Hell, we've known each other for a good long time. Doesn't mean I really have to have liked the slime-ball. *sigh* Maybe I shouldn't be so hard on him... especially now that he's dead. We actually got along pretty well most of the time. We just had our... differences. We were actually business partners. We were involved in some orbit-to-ground transport operations for Aratech. We were actually business partners. We were involved in some orbit-to-ground transport operations for Aratech.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Why would someone want to kill him?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: You Jedi are so predictable. Always seeing some greater purpose behind everything, when the simple answer is usually the right one. Can't you see that it must have been Handon? I found him standing over the damned body! I don't know why this is causing you so much trouble. You almost seem as lost as this Bolook guy.

Once the droid has told you about Calder and Rickard:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You thought Calder was cheating you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Now, I don't love Calder, but we go back a long way. We run a sub-orbital shipping and transport company out of Garang spaceport. We've been partners in that business for well over twenty years, and we've been doing just fine the way we are.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You can deny it, but there was bad blood between you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Right...

Discuss the murder with Bolook:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: We know Rickard lied about the sun blinding him while he was shooting, but we need more to go on. Let's examine the relationship of each man with the victim. Handon told me he barely knew the victim. On the other hand, Rickard and the victim were business partners. However, according to Rickard they got along quite well. On the surface, neither man seems to have a motive for killing Calder.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Actually, I reconsidered. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Let me try something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well. Neither man has a motive for murder, at least according to their own accounts. What do you think? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well, I believe there may yet be a chance of you solving this. Where does the truth lie?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm stumped. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I do not know.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Handon is lying.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He had rented a speeder with Calder. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He was probably stalking him.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: The Southwood company's record did say that Calder and Handon had rented a landspeeder together several times. This shows that he did, in fact, know the victim. But this hardly counts as a motive for murder. I'm afraid I can't accept your judgment on this point. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I have no idea what evidence you could base that on.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Just a theory.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It is strange that Handon should be here at the exact time of the murder. But, no, that is not any sort of firm evidence to prove that he was stalking Calder. It could still be simple chance.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Supposition does not equal evidence.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Rickard is lying.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He does not seem like a business man. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. He's getting on my nerves.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I do not believe Rickard was lying about being in business with Calder. We have a record of that, fully registered and licenced. It seems you are having trouble separating the facts from wild guesses. Maybe I was mistaken in believing you were ready for this case. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: You should try to remain objective in this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Your personal feelings towards the man should not influence your decision in this matter. There is no emotion, there is peace. If you let your emotions rule your judgment you will be of little use in cases such as these.

Both men are lying, so you can choose either: however, to progress after saying Rickard is lying, the droid only needs to have told you about Calder and him; after saying Handon is lying, it needs to have told you about Calder and him, and then when you spoke to Handon, you need to have said he knew Calder better than he admits. This unlocks the following reasons:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He knew his wife was cheating on him. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. They had a fight over business matters.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It is not unusual for business partners to disagree sometimes, but if he found proof Calder was cheating him things could escalate to violence.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Well, that certainly is a motive for murder. The case is taking shape; however, you mustn't jump to any quick conclusions. Perhaps we should now focus on the murder weapon itself. You might want to see what information the witnesses and the information droid can provide you about the blaster found near the body. If there is anything else you need, I will remain here while you question the witnesses.

You can only say one man is lying now, but ideally you should know why both are. You need to ask Handon what he knows, then ask the droid if there's a report of Handon's blaster being stolen, before discussing the murder with Bolook again (after which the droid can tell you about the blood sample):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What about the weapon found by the body?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: That blaster? Never seen it before. Calder himself had a preference for Echani weaponry. He had this one really nice light blaster rifle that he always used. Always wished I could get myself a rifle like the one he had...
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Echanis make delicate weapons with too little firepower. Lightweight stuff, if you ask me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: That blaster ain't it, though. Calder only had the one rifle, too, so he either must have borrowed that... or it's someone else's.

Speaking to Rickard (or the droid) only confirms that the blaster didn't belong to the victim.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you know about the weapon found by the body?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon: That blaster was stolen from my house last week! I never knew what happened to it. I hardly have enough money to afford a single blaster, let alone another. I can't tell you how important it is to have a weapon on hand with all these ravenous kath hounds around. Even an iriaz can take a man down if it gets in the mood. Every settler has a weapon. It's our most prized possession. I would most appreciate it if I could have that back after you determine that Rickard is the killer.

Speak to the droid:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about the weapon found at the scene.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: We cannot get any more specific analysis from that sample other than the fact it did not belong to Calder.

After asking Handon what he knows:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is there a report of Handon's blaster being stolen?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: I am sorry, but I seem to be failing you. I have searched and searched, but I cannot seem to come up with anything at all. I thought to find the record of the missing weapon report Mr. Guld filed with the authorities, but there does not seem to be one.

Discuss the murder with Bolook:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: So, what have you determined about the weapon found by the body?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I haven't learned anything yet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Perhaps you should examine the witnesses' stories more closely. Also, you can always speak with the information retrieval droid to gain access to data from the Jedi Enclave that pertains to the case.

After asking Rickard or the droid, or Handon what they know:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The blaster didn't belong to the victim. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The blaster is Handon's, but he reported it stolen.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: So the blaster could be linked to anyone. I'm afraid that is not very helpful. Maybe this case is too complicated for you to solve. You have done well, but maybe this is beyond your training. Perhaps it would be best if I returned to the Enclave and handled this myself. Unless you wish to continue your investigations?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Let me get more information on the blaster. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I can't solve this. I give up.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: When you have gathered all the information you need, come back to me and we can try to determine what happened. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well. I will take these two suspects to the Enclave and judge this case myself. May the Force be with you.

After asking Handon what he knows, then asking the droid if there's a report of Handon's blaster being stolen:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The blaster is Handon's. He lied about it being stolen.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: So we have caught Handon in a lie. Interesting, but I think we may need one final piece of the puzzle. There was a blood sample on the weapon that had been sent back for analysis just before you arrived. Perhaps you could inquire with the information droid about it. If there is anything else you need, I will remain here while you question the witnesses.

Speak to the droid:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about the blood sample.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Information Droid: I have just received back an analysis of a sample of the blood found on the weapon. It had been sent back to the Enclave just before you arrived. The blood on the weapon is definitely not Calder's. Unfortunately there was a bacterial contaminant in the sample that had been taken back to the laboratory, and it had become degraded. We cannot get any more specific analysis from that sample other than the fact it did not belong to Calder.

Discuss the murder with Bolook one last time, after making sure you've unlocked both men's motives:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I assume the blood on the weapon belongs to the victim, but I want to be thorough. What have you learned about the blood on the weapon?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It didn't belong to the victim.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: That is surprising. So the blood must belong to one of the suspects. But which one?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Actually, I reconsidered.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well... whose blood do you think it is?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It's Handon's blood. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It's Rickard's blood.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Why do you believe that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't trust him! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He lied to me before.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: That does not prove anything. You cannot assume somone's guilt except based on the facts we have observed. It seems you are letting your personal biases influence you on this case. I'm afraid you lack the wisdom to solve this case.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: If you are unable to deduce the facts of this case, then I will take the suspects back to the Enclave and handle it myself. But since you have talked to the suspects, there is no harm in you trying further.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Let me try something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Very well, I believe there may yet be a chance of you solving this. Where does the truth lie?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He is clutching his side. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He was limping earlier. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. He could have cut himself on the rocks.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Hm... Handon has been moving oddly since I arrived... Perhaps we should examine him a little more closely. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Hm... perhaps. We should examine him more closely then.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Hey! Quit it! *grumble*
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Rickard does not seem to be bleeding. I am not sure that it would have been possible to get his blood on the weapon. I suppose we are left with only one option... the blood is Handon's. Perhaps I should examine him more closely.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Hey! What are you doing!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: There is blood! Handon appears to have suffered some sort of blaster wound to his side.

Bolook's conclusion depends on whether you said Handon or Rickard was lying earlier about having no motive:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It would seem there is one logical scenario: Handon killed Calder for having an affair with his wife. Rickard was out hunting and accidentally shot Handon after he had killed Calder. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It seems there is one likely scenario: Rickard killed Calder for cheating him in business. While shooting Calder, he must have also hit Handon by accident.

They're both guilty, but you need to have unlocked the other's actual motive as well to successfully solve the crime and receive the most experience:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, they are both guilty. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. They are both guilty.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: A bold conclusion... one most people would not arrive at. But we are not like most people, we are Jedi. Still, I would like to know how you came to this conclusion.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: We know Calder was having an affair with Handon's wife, but what possible motive could Rickard have for wanting Calder dead? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: We know Calder was cheating Rickard in business, but what possible motive could Handon have for wanting Calder dead?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He was also having an affair with Handon's wife! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He was jealous of Calder's good looks! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He wanted to rob Calder. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I just have a hunch.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: What?? What are you talking about? I don't want that bantha of a wife Handon has! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I'm afraid that isn't good enough. Based on the evidence you have gathered, you are left with little choice: Handon must be found guilty.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Your theory makes no sense to me. As a Jedi you must be above making wild, unsubstantiated accusations.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Rickard thought Calder was cheating him in business! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Handon admitted that Calder was having an affair with his wife!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, well done! Both men had a reason to want Calder dead. This is my theory of this morning's events: both men knew Calder would be out here this morning and each plotted to kill him. Handon found him first and shot him because of the affair Calder was having with his wife. Shortly after, Rickard arrived on the scene. From a distance he saw Handon and thought it was Calder, so he shot him in retaliation for the credits Calder had cheated him out of in their business. Handon would have dropped his blaster - the one we found at the scene covered in blood. He probably thought Rickard was going to kill him so he called us, hoping he could convince us it was Rickard.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Damn you! Damn both of you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: That is enough. The culpability of both of you in the murder - and attempted murder - of Calder Nettic is evident. Additionally, Rickard Lusoff can be charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder of Handon Guld. I place you both under the arrest of the Jedi Order, and will escort you to holding facilities in the Jedi Enclave. You have done well here, it is obvious you have been studying your lessons carefully. I will be sure to inform the Jedi Council of your performance in this little test.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Well done. I am impressed... I'm not sure I could have done as well. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You did good. You might just make a proper Jedi yet, who knows? KotOR Icon T3-M4.png T3-M4: [happily] Beep-beep boop!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Thanks, Teethree.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Good day, and may the Force be with you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Murdered Settler
You've successfully solved the crime by realizing that both men were guilty. Although it was Handon who actually killed Calder, Rickard would have killed him had he arrived a little sooner. The two suspects have both been taken into custody, and Bolook is certain to tell the Jedi Council of your brilliant deductive skills.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1310 Both men found guilty

If you don't give the other man's actual motive then you only receive 570 XP (740 less), although this is still 100 more than received for finding only one guilty, whether or not you agree with Bolook's conclusion:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, Handon is the guilty one. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Handon did it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, Rickard is the guilty one. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It was Rickard.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: An interesting theory, but what do you base that on? What possible motive could he have had? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Interesting. And why do you believe that? What possible motive could he have had?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He wanted to steal his blaster. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He had the opportunity and took it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Calder was secretly a Sith agent. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He wanted to steal Calder's blaster.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Possible... but we have found no weapon anywhere. He could have dumped it in the river, but that is unlikely because it would have damaged the weapon. I do not believe that was the case. The facts in this investigation do not point towards such an event taking place. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I do not believe that was the case. The facts in this investigation do not point towards such an event taking place. There are too many points that show intent for it to be a random killing. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I have no idea upon what you based that assumption. I assure you that no facts in this case point towards that possibility at all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Hm... that is a possibility, but unlikely. There is no evidence of a weapon at all, other than Handon's. I do not believe that was the case. The facts in this investigation do not point towards such a motive. There are too many facts that point towards other possibilities.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I do not believe your logic is up to the task of deciding who is guilty in this case. I will take these men to the enclave and deal with this matter myself.

If you disagree but don't give the other man's actual motive, then you receive no experience whatsoever unless you can be highly persuasive, then say they're both guilty or it's one who's actual motive is known:

Hard 1. [Persuade] I can still solve this! Impossible 2. [Force Persuade] You will let me try again. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. If you must.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: [Success] Hm. You have been of great assistance already. Perhaps it was merely a mistake on your part. Very well, you may yet discover who committed this crime. Who do you believe killed Calder Nettic? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: [Failure] No, you have done what you can already, and it appears to be beyond your abilities. Perhaps with more training you would have done better. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: [Failure] Do not try to use mental powers on me, human! I am far more advanced in my training than you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Do not despair. Although you couldn't solve the case you handled yourself in a manner befitting a Jedi. Once you have more training and experience I am certain you will be able to handle matters such as this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I will take the suspects to the Enclave to judge them myself. Rest assured, I will give the Council a full account of your actions here.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Calder was cheating with his wife. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I agree. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Calder was taking money from their business.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, I concur. That is a good motive for Handon to have. And Handon being the killer matches with the facts of the case as presented so far. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, I believe that has some truth in it. It would be quite a motive for him to seek revenge upon Mr. Nettic.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: And so you have made your judgment in this case.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: I can leave now, then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Good, good. I assume I am permitted to leave now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You can go now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Stay out of trouble from now on.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I could let you go for... 100 credits?
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Bolook: That is a most unbecoming attitude for a Jedi. I will be sure to inform the Council of it. The judgment has been rendered. You may leave, Mr. Lusoff. For now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: A Jedi does not exploit their position! Have you learned nothing during your training? The judgment has been rendered. You may leave, Mr. Guld. For now.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: What! No! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: What! No, dammit!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, Mr. Guld? Is there something wrong? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, Mr. Lusoff? Is there something wrong?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Do you not feel justice has been done here? Do you not feel you should be taken to the Enclave for sentencing?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: No! If I'm going, I'm not going alone! You don't know what you've done! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: No! If I'm going, I'm going to take him with me! You don't know anything about what happened!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Of course I know what I've done. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Shut your mouth you lying scum!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Look, I came out here, I admit, to kill Calder, but so did Rickard! He must have thought it was Calder when he shot, and hit me! So I'm going to prison, but I shouldn't be going alone! Did you idiots have to let the slime-ball go? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Yeah, I came out here to kill Calder. The Hutt-spawn was funneling credits from our business and we were going under because of it. But if I'm getting caught, I'm not going to go down by myself! You two idiots let the real killer go!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Yes, Handon had a motive you have missed: Calder was fooling around with his wife. I have known this all along, but I was hoping you would discover this vital information during your investigations and realize the importance of it yourself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It appears your investigations were incomplete. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It appears your instincts were correct, after all. It is a shame you couldn't come up with the evidence to support your theory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It seems you were a bit rash in your investigation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I imagine if we examine the business records we will discover Calder had been cheating Rickard. That information would have been easily accessible through the information droid. You should have looked into it during your investigation. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: You should have examined the relationship between Calder and Handon more thoroughly. Surely we could have found some evidence of this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: Yes, you green-skinned nerfherder!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Handon Guld: Yes, you tentacle-headed moron! I came out here and killed Calder, but Rickard was here to do that too and he shot me by mistake! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: But Handon's guilt does not absolve you of your part in this, Rickard. If you confess the Council will go easier on you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rickard Lusoff: I came out here to kill Calder and when I saw someone over by the bridge I shot him. But Handon had already killed him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I will return to the Enclave with Mr. Guld in custody, and I will also have the authorities apprehend Mr. Lusoff. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I will return to the Enclave with Mr. Lusoff, and I will have Mr. Guld apprehended.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: It is a minor inconvenience, but one well worth the cost if you have learned your lesson here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: I realized your judgment was incorrect, but I allowed you to make it so you could understand that there are always consequences to our actions. As a Jedi you must always remember this. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: In the future, you must always be aware of your responsibilities as a Jedi. You cannot act based on mere theories and suppositions. I knew your theory about both men being guilty was correct, but without proper evidence I could not allow you to render your judgement.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bolook: Good day, and may the Force be with you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Murdered Settler
You solved the case, sort of. You rightfully concluded that Handon was the one who actually killed Calder, but you failed to realize that Rickard was also planning Calder's murder. Unfortunately, Rickard was able to get away while you were accusing Handon. Hopefully he can be recaptured.

  • Mandalorian Datapad

This is the second of two Mandalorian datapads, which the last of the three Mandalorians you need to kill also has; the second of the three Mandalorians you need to kill has the first.

Mandalorian datapads
Jarg, did you remember not to take the XT-model bike out today? There was something funny with one of the intakes, and I thought it could jam.
Ha! Consider yourself lucky! If someone was dumb enough to take that thing out he would have ploughed right into the ground within a kilometer.
Jarg went missing in Sector B, then Reeza saw someone moving south of there. Take a couple troops and find out who it is.
If they look suspicious: terminate.

Once you've killed Sherruk, any Mandalorian datapads will be lost from your inventory.

Once you've also killed the Mandalorians in the Matale grounds and Sandral grounds, when you leave then return to the grove Sherruk will appear here. As you approach, he challenges you:

KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Now this is what I've been waiting for!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sherruk: I will add your head to those of the other Jedi I have killed, and take another lightsaber for my own! Now you will know why the Mandalorians are feared!

Sherruk begins by using a Sith Energy Shield and has Immunity: Mind-Affecting and a high Fortitude save, so the most reliable way to debilitate him is to use Force Whirlwind. His Sonic Nullifiers have Damage Resistance: Resist 10/- vs. Sonic.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mandalorian Raiders
You have met and slain the Mandalorian leader, Sherruk. He liked to collect lightsabers, and surely would have taken yours, and your head, had you not slain him.

Jon would surely like to hear of this, and should reward you as well.

Technically you only need to kill Sherruk to return to the courtyard and collect your reward from Jon, but you might as well kill them all:

Do not turn your back on him as he has Sneak Attack V, adding 5-30 to his attack if you do so. Also be wary of being debilitated by Sherruk's Master Critical Strike in conjunction with this. The remaining Mandalorian uses a Mandalorian Heavy Repeater:
