HK-47 can join your party if you purchase him from Yuka Laka, the Ithorian proprietor of the droid shop in Anchorhead on Tatooine. You can then speak to him at any time when he is added to your party or you're aboard the Ebon Hawk, where you'll find him in the Swoop Hangar with Canderous.

Dialog[edit]

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Statement: HK-47 is ready to serve, master.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. That will be all, HK-47.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: As you desire, master. Signing off.

Otherwise, you can tell him you'd like to know more about his functionality:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is there any way to repair you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Okay, that will be all.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: As you desire, master. Signing off.

You can also tell him that he doesn't need to call you master:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You don't need to call me master, you know.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Query: Don't I? I was under the assumption that organic meatbags such as yourself enjoyed such forms of address.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. 'Organic meatbags?' KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Well I don't, so stop it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. But I'm *not* your master.

Meatbags[edit]

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Retraction: Did I say that out loud? I apologize, master. While you are a meatbag I suppose I should not call you such.

Master[edit]

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Apology: I am afraid I cannot comply with your command, master, as much as I would like to.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who did that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Well, maybe I can fix that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. But I'm *not* your master.

Purchase[edit]

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Qualification: You *are* my master, master. Did you not purchase me legitimately? Am I stolen goods? Shall I report myself to the authorities?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You don't know? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your systems have been tampered with?

Memory[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Is there any way to repair you?

Repairs[edit]

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Answer: Some of my motor functions can be safely repaired, master… but anything in relation to my memory core is extremely sensitive. I have safeguards installed to protect that core that I cannot de-activate. It is not impossible that other, lesser, memory functions could be restored, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I would like to try restoring some of your memory.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: HK-47
The deeper functions of HK-47's memory core require some sort of stimulus in order to restore themselves, and HK-47 thinks it is unwise to tamper with this, but other parts of the core might be restored. It would simply take someone of sufficient technical skill in order to do so.

Restoring other parts of the core requires an increasingly high Repair rank of your main character for each of four consecutive repairs. Aside from unlocking further dialogs, HK-47 receives bonuses after each successful repair:

Repair Difficulty Class Minimum Rank Dexterity Defense Regeneration
1 28 8 +2
2 31 11 +2
3 34 14 +1
4 37 17 +2 +1
Total +4 +2 +2

If HK-47 joins your party before you've acquired a fourth Star Map and left that world, then these repairs are no longer possible once you've asked him what he has to say back aboard the Ebon Hawk after being captured by and escaping from the Leviathan, at which point this quest is completed (so these repairs aren't actually necessary); if you do not ask him then you can still complete any outstanding repairs, but you cannot complete this quest properly.

To achieve minimum Repair rank 17 to complete all four repairs, it's advisable to buy Calrissian's Utility Belt (Skills: Repair +3) and boost Intelligence using Master Valor (Intelligence: +5 from character level 15) and the Memory Package implant (Intelligence: +1, if possible).

If HK-47 doesn't join your party until after you've escaped the Leviathan, these repairs are still possible but you cannot complete this quest properly. If you have access to the Yavin Station, then after acquiring the fifth and final Star Map you can also buy the Advanced Agent Interface (Skills: Repair +7) there. This may be a preferred option if your starting class is not a Scout and your Jedi class is not a Jedi Consular (otherwise Repair is a cross-class skill), particularly for a dark side character who wants to add HK-47 to the party on the Star Forge.

First[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I would like to try restoring some of your memory.

The first repair requires minimum Repair rank 8 to be a success:

KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: [Success] …and now re-wire the last three relays… yes, good. Well done, master. I believe your operation was a success. Accessing new memory…
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Because of your repairs, HK-47 now has a permanent bonus of +2 to his dexterity.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: HK-47
Successfully tampering with HK-47's memory core has recovered the droid's memory of his most recent owner. The dissolution of the owner's company and auctioning of its assets must be how HK-47 ended up in the droid shop on Tatooine. How the droid got to the executive, however, is unknown.

Second[edit]

The second repair requires minimum Repair rank 11 to be a success:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Because of your repairs, HK-47 now has a permanent bonus of +2 to his defense rating, in addition to the +2 dexterity bonus from your earlier repairs.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: HK-47
Memories of HK-47's owner prior to the corporate executive have been recovered. The death of that owner shut HK-47 down… and eventually his wife unwittingly sold the droid to the executive. How the senator acquired HK-47 is unknown.

Third[edit]

The third repair requires minimum Repair rank 14 to be a success:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Because of your repairs, HK-47 will now regenerate at a rate of 1 vitality point every 6 seconds, in addition to his other abilities.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: HK-47
It appears that prior to the senator, HK-47 was owned by a feared gangster on Sleheyron known as Bochaba the Hutt. After Bochaba died, another gangster apparently sold the droid to the senator. HK-47 wasn't built on Sleheyron, however, so how he came into the Hutt's possession is unknown.

Fourth[edit]

The fourth repair requires minimum Repair rank 17 to be a success:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Because of your repairs, HK-47 will now regenerate at a rate of 1 vitality point every 3 seconds and has gained an additional +2 bonus to his dexterity.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: HK-47
Prior to the Hutt, it appears that HK-47 was owned by a Mandalorian soldier. This is the last of HK-47's retrievable memories, however, and it seems the chain is still not complete… HK-47 had been on an assassination mission in Mandalorian space when he was damaged, but does not know who had originally sent him. Unless the stimuli to restore his deeper core is discovered, the details may never be known.

Leviathan[edit]

If you try restoring some of his memory a fifth time before acquiring a fourth Star Map, leaving that world and subsequently being captured by the Leviathan:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I would like to try restoring some of your memory.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Negatory: I believe that there are no further deleted memories which can be safely retrieved, master. All earlier memories reside in my core. Those are protected by my safeguards and would be far too dangerous to access. The only way those memories could be obtained is through the proper stimulus… whatever that might be. I am sorry, master.

The 'proper stimulus' is asking HK-47 what he has to say during the dialog aboard the Ebon Hawk after escaping the hangar of the Leviathan, before asking Carth if he will stand with you against Malak (since you cannot ask HK-47 afterward): this is the only time you can ask him to properly complete this quest, although once you've done so you cannot complete any outstanding repairs.

Commentary[edit]

Even if you don't speak to HK-47 directly he may comment during dialog when in your party, although others may need to be added or removed to unlock this:
