Jolee joins your party after you fulfill his request to remove the Czerka poachers from the Upper Shadowlands of Kashyyyk. Once you've left that world, if Jolee is in your party then an elderly man named Davin Kotras may approach and speak to you in one of the following locations:

Dantooine Tatooine Kashyyyk Manaan Korriban
Jedi Enclave Docking Bay No No Dreshdae
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: Excuse me, have you seen a mechanic about? Short fellow, bald. I've been looking --
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, I'll be a Wookiee's uncle. Davin! Davin Kotras!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: Ha! Jolee! Jolee Bindo? Why, you old freak! Last time I saw you, you were still wandering the galaxy in that old tug. I thought you were dead, old man.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I crashed somewhere and decided to stay. Heh heh.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: Yeah, yeah. I'll just bet. Damn, old man, you look exactly the same as the last time I saw you! You pickle well.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You're too kind. Not the young lad anymore yourself, I see.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Jolee, we should be going… KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. We don't have time for reunions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Care to introduce your friend, Jolee?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yes, yes, right you are. Sorry, Davin, but duty calls. Maybe I'll run into you again soon. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: What, are you deaf? His name's Davin. Old friend from my wanderer days. By the by, Davin, I really should be running off…
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: Of course, old man. Oh, wait… if you've been traveling in this sector, I suppose you heard about Sunry?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No. Why? What's there to hear?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: He's been picked up by the Selkath authorities on Manaan. For murder.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: That's preposterous.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: I know. Elora is beside herself, as you can imagine. Maybe you could help them? I'm sure Sunry would appreciate a Jedi's assistance right about now.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Perhaps I will at that. It's up to my friend, here, actually. I'm just tagging along.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. We could check into it when we're on Manaan next. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. We have more important things to do. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not making any promises.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'd appreciate that. Sunry's an old friend… I'd hate to see him hurt. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I was expecting that. Still… if we get the chance, I'd be grateful. Sunry's an old friend… I'd hate to see him hurt.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Davin Kotras: Same here. Well, heh, it was good to see you again. Give my regards to Elora, if you see her.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I will. Be safe, old friend.

Surprisingly, you don't actually have to speak to Davin to activate the Sunry Murder Trial in Ahto West on Manaan: Jolee joining your party is sufficient. Once Davin has left, you can ask Jolee about Sunry, the old friend who's been picked up by the Selkath authorities on Manaan for murder:

KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Got something on your mind, do you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about Sunry. How do you know him?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: What? You think because I'm a hermit I've always been a hermit? Just because I haven't seen Sunry for twenty years doesn't mean he's not a friend. A man could have changed a lot in that span of time, though. But to become a murderer? Oh. Mm mm mm. I can't see it. That's not the Sunry I knew. He was a good man. Put me up in his home for a year back after I left the order. War hero, too, or so I hear. I wouldn't mind helping the fellow, if we can. I owe it to him. Or you can be a young monkey-lizard and ignore me, I guess… well, I don't expect much these days.

If you don't speak to Jolee when he's in your party after leaving Kashyyyk, then you may be prompted to do so:

KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: [Even though he has joined your group, Jolee remains a somewhat mysterious character. Maybe you should speak to him about why he chose to come with you.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Speak to Jolee.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Don't speak to him.]
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Got something on your mind, do you? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: [You decide to ignore Jolee and continue on with your quest for now, though it might be a good idea to speak with him later.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why did you decide to come with me?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You got yourself a fast little ship. Heh. I'd forgotten what engines sounded like. The closest thing to that on Kashyyyk is an uller in mating season. Ugh! Frightful.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So you wanted a ride on my ship?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Or it could be for the free food. What's the gunk that comes out of the synthesizer on this bucket, anyway? Do you never clean the darned thing?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No, seriously, tell me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. If you don't want to answer the question, old man, just say so. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Fine, forget it.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'm old, damn it! I'm allowed to be enigmatic when I want to be, and don't go telling me otherwise. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: How impatient can one person be? You must have driven your mother mad. All that gurgling and fussing… heh, babies are cute, but annoying. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Wow, you're not much for interrogation, are you? Is this as hard as you try? Remind me to sign up for your next torture session.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You know, you remind me of someone else I knew ages ago. Pleasant enough fellow, great destiny… all of that. Breath like a bantha.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you annoy this person endlessly, too? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Is this a comment on my breath? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're avoiding the question.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh ho ho, very funny. Is it my fault that some people are so easily annoyed? They're like impatient little children. With blasters. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, but it could be. An Anduvian salt tablet would clear that right up, you know. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So I am. Tell you what… when you get to be my age, you can go ahead and answer any question you like, too. You have my permission.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Anyway, where was I? Oh, yes. Andor Vex, was his name. The Force swirled around him like a hurricane, that's how great his destiny was.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I never heard of him. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Is that what you see around me, too? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And you traveled with this man?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, you wouldn't have. Sometimes swirling Force is just swirling Force. It gets us old Jedis excited at our age so we go "ooo, destiny!" KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, it's not so much a hurricane as a slight breeze. But that doesn't mean anything: destiny is sometimes in the eye of the beholder. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I did. Just because someone has the Force swirling about them doesn't always mean they have a great destiny, but it doesn't hurt to check it out.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, it turned out that poor Andor believed a wee bit too much in the infallibility of that destiny. That overconfidence turned out to be his downfall.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is there supposed to be some hidden meaning in this? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Does this story have a point, old man? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're making all of this up!
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I don't know. Are you overconfident? I hadn't noticed. Even if I had, I would never comment on it. We're talking about Andor, remember? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Does it have to have a point? I thought we were just talking about Andor. Is something wrong with your attention span? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I am not! I've no need to make things up, with my poor memory and all. You just sit still and let me finish, damn it.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Let's see… oh, yes. Andor's downfall. I was pretty young, myself, when it happened. At the time, I thought that Andor's destiny couldn't be more boring.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How young are we talking? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. As boring as this story? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So why didn't you "leave"?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, let's just say that I was a strapping young lad with a full head of hair and Coruscant was a small town with a well, heh heh. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You know, if you keep interrupting, it will take even longer. Have you no patience at all? How did you get as old as you are anyway? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, he had a much better food dispenser than you do. That and the fact that even then I wasn't an altogether impatient *twit*.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I was just about to abandon Andor to whatever the Force intended for him when his ship was overtaken by a Dimean warship. Now, you've probably never heard of the Dimeans, but at the time they were a nasty lot led by a nastier overlord named Kraat. Tall fellow. Big teeth. Kraat has us hauled onto the bridge of his ship for questioning, and that's when I knew that Andor's destiny was at hand.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Andor killed Kraat, I take it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How did you know? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And? Go on.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Of course he did! Haven't you been listening? It was not in the way you'd probably expect, though. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Swirling Force, remember? Jedi here? Granted, I was just interpreting the signs, but we get trained in that sort of thing. More or less.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, Andor decides that his destiny makes him invulnerable and starts making all sorts of demands. Free me now, I'm not answering questions, blah blah blah. Don't you know who I am? Kraat decides he's had enough and begins crushing Andor's neck. I told the boy he should have kept his mouth shut. I think he agreed, too… or those could have just been gurgling noises. Well… well, anyway. Finally, Kraat has enough of Andor and tosses him aside into this giant energy intake shaft. Andor gets sucked in and starts bouncing around, heh, screaming… heh. Maybe Andor hit something sensitive on the way down or just didn't agree with the reactor core, next thing I know all the ship's alarms are ringing.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're kidding…
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Everyone panics and I run, barely making it to the ship in time before the explosion. Kraat dies horribly, and the Dimeans never quite recovered. Changed the political course of the entire sector for centuries to come. I'd call that quite a destiny, wouldn't you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I hate you, old man... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But how can you even be sure Andor was responsible? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And what does that have to do with you coming with me?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, now, that's the ingratitude of youth for you. I relate an exciting tale and do I get thanked for it? No, no, it's all 'me me me! ' Hmph. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: What?! Are you kidding?! What are the odds of that happening, anyway? A billion to one? You should do so well as to be sucked into the engine of some evil Sith Lord, you know. Andor was a hero… sort of. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, hey, the chances may not be great, but when one has the opportunity to see something like that twice in a lifetime…
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Anyway, go on. My throat is dry and you're making me cranky. Shoo!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You and Jolee have talked a little about his past. You may continue the conversation with him in the future, perhaps once you have gained some more experience.

Dialog[edit]

Level ups can unlock further dialogs once previous dialogs have been completed, but so can entering and exiting the Ebon Hawk and adding Jolee to your party (you may also be able to speak to him in the medical room inside, but it's quicker to just enter and exit before speaking outside).

However, you may want to wait until you've acquired a fourth Star Map, left that world and subsequently been captured by and escaped from the Leviathan before completing the Fifth and Sixth dialogs due to some (admittedly quite minor) changes this makes.

First[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You never did actually say why you decided to come with me...
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, I never did, did I?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You know, I don't *have* to take you with me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you always going to be this elusive? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Answer the question, old man.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Of course you do. I know things, remember? You think you could make it around this part of the galaxy without me? Don't answer that. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Elusive? Me, elusive? Heh. Obviously you've never tried to grab a Twi'lek dancing girl after drinking too much Ondaran willek juice. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: My, my, somebody woke up on the wrong side of the starship this morning, I see. Is that a chip on your shoulder or are you a bit surly today?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: At any rate, I already told you why I wanted to leave. I've seen everything I wanted to on Kashyyyk. Time to go, time to move on.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Move on to where? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't believe you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You looked plenty happy there, to me.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: To bed. I'm old and tired, you know. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: The hermit says he's tired of living alone in the giant forest and you find that hard to believe? How cynical are you? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You live in an overgrown stump with the tachs beating down your door and you tell me how happy you would be. I was pleased just to have visitors.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No, really.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: How many kilometer-high trees can you find an interest in before you figure you've had enough? I'd bet you can't be bothered to stay in one room for more than fifteen minutes. And then there's all the critters in the Shadowlands... I'm just happy to be back in space, doing something new. Is that too much to ask?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You could do that on your own. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Damn right it is. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I guess not.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So I could. Not having a ship does tend to put a damper on that kind of idea, however. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You got a smart mouth on you there, you know that? If ullers could talk, they'd sound like that. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: There, now, was that so hard? An old man has to be allowed some petty eccentricities. Nice to see you agree, for once.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'll admit... for all its flaws, Kashyyyk was home enough. But when you came along and I saw the destiny you had before you, I couldn't help but be intrigued.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You know what my destiny is? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What interest do you have in my future? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Just keep your opinions on it to yourself.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Of course not. Weren't you listening last time? I can see that you have a destiny before you... but the details are far from clear. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Interest? Well, I certainly don't have a vested interest... call it more idle curiosity. Your destiny is... rather unclear. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Have I offered a single opinion? No, I haven't, though you could do far worse than hear a couple of mine. Your destiny, after all, is rather unclear.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: In fact, everything about you that I can see is odd. Slightly off, as if my eyes are trying to trick me. Something... something is very dark about you... ... but bah! I'm sure you don't need to hear my ruminations. You've probably got enough nosy Jedi offering you one opinion after another to make you sick.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No, tell me more of what you see. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You got that right. I have enough Jedi watching me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So you're coming along to *not* offer your opinions?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Your future will come of its own accord, trust me. Sometimes navel-gazing at it doesn't get you anywhere. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well I for one am quite content to let you make your own mistakes. Just because I want to see where this ends up doesn't mean I need to tell you how to get there. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'll remind you that *you're* the one who started pumping me for information. Like an old man doesn't have anything better to do. Hmph.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I wouldn't worry about it too much, if I were you. You remind me a bit of Nomi, heh heh, and that can't be all bad.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Nomi? Who's Nomi?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nomi Sunrider. She came late to the Force, just as you have, and became one of the greatest Jedi ever. Oh, fine, fine lass. Whether you'll follow the same path remains to be seen. For one thing, we'll never get anywhere if you stand around chatting up old men all day...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't bring you along for your amusement, you know. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So... you're along as some kind of observer? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't need another mentor.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, stop being such a baby. Are you always so quick to turn aside an ally? Got too many of them, do you? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nonsense. Have I ever refused to help you when you asked? How confused can one person be, anyway? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Good, since I didn't offer to be one. You think anyone would want to mentor you with that kind of attitude? Not me, I'm past that.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: One thing I will say is that this little escapade does remind me a bit of my adventuring days before the war. Ahh, those were exciting times. Or at least it would remind me of those times if we didn't stand around. What's keeping you? You're too young to be so talkative. Shoo! Shoo!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You prodded Jolee in an effort to find out why he decided to come with you. In the end, he did mention his 'adventuring days'. Perhaps you could ask him about them later, once you gain more experience.

Second[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You mentioned something about your 'adventuring days'?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Did I say that? Strange the tricks memory plays on you when you get older.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So you weren't an adventurer?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Didn't I say that my past was my affair? You don't see me poking and prodding you with questions, do you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But you've already said so much... I'm curious. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're just not used to company. Stop being an old coot.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'm not here to satisfy your curiosity! No staring at the old man, that's what the sign says, dammit! KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. I might be. But a mouthy young thing like yourself shouldn't get to call me an old coot, dammit.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: And besides... you don't really want to hear about me. We're talking ancient history, probably before you were born. History bores kids. Proven fact.

Either of the following responses completes this quest prematurely:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Fine. I won't ask you questions ever again. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're right. I'd rather not be bored.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well that's a relief. Maybe an old man can finally get some peace around here. Now, run along and do whatever you were doing, already.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
For some reason, Jolee isn't about to talk to you anymore. He will accompany you on your mission, but his thoughts and his story are his own.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yeah? Well old people love to talk about history. Proven fact. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not a 'kid'.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh fine, fine, have it your way. Just don't cry about it later. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So you're not. Fine, have it your way. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yes, yes, I was an adventurer. Happy now? I wasn't even done with my Jedi training back then. I had a full head of hair and an eagerness to see absolutely everything. Sound familiar? The Council was never very happy with willful, brash Jolee Bindo, you see. Even less so when I began my smuggling career.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. *You* were a smuggler? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. A Jedi would never be a smuggler! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How did that happen?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Don't look at me like that, dammit! I wasn't always the wrinkled coot I am now, you know. I can still fight, too, so wipe off that smirk I see there. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You're very sure of that, are you? My, my, you must be very learned and experienced to know so many things. At any rate, I was still a Padawan at the time.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: At the time the Ukatis system was interdicted by its own King. He preferred to keep his people starving and poor, all the better to oppress them. The Senate was trying to negotiate a peace, but they were getting nowhere as usual. I decided I wasn't going to wait. I found myself a ship and a partner and we began smuggling food and supplies to the Ukatis citizenry through the blockade.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Was it very dangerous?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, it was. I was a half-decent pilot in those days... and with the Force guiding me, we made it through some tough spots nobody else would have.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You were a pilot, too?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Pilot, smuggler... several other things, too. Or did you suppose I was always a crotchety hermit?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I still can't believe you actually did that.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Why not? There were millions of people crying out for aid. What else was I supposed to do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How about nothing?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Don't be stupid. Are you doing nothing? If nothing's not good enough for you there's no reason it should have been good enough for me back then, either.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Where did you get the credits for all the supplies?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well... we didn't *buy* all the equipment, per se. Some were happy to donate goods. Some we just, ah, knew had more than they could use...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So you stole it?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: 'Stole' is such a harsh word. They would have donated those goods readily enough if they were compassionate. I considered it a tax on the greedy. We only got caught once. A lone Ukatish frigate shot us down and forced a crash landing. I thought the Force had abandoned me, as I remember.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What happened then? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Maybe it should have. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Well that was pretty stupid of you.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, so you're going to speak for the Force now, are you? I deserved to crash, is that it? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. As I recall, I'm not the only person in this conversation who's been shot down out of the sky recently.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, as it happens, getting shot down turned out to be very fortunate. That day was the day I...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That was the day you what?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, that... that was the day I met my wife.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Oh, I'm sorry... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Your wife? You were married? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Bad memory, I take it?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: It's alright. When you're digging through the trash, you shouldn't be surprised when you encounter something unpleasant. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You know another way to get a wife? But, yes... that's when I met her. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No. No, that was a good memory. There are just... much worse ones that followed.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I... If it's all the same to you, I'd prefer to stop talking now. My mouth is starting to draw flies.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You got Jolee to talk a little about his adventuring days... and during his tale he mentioned the fact that he had a wife. He didn't want to talk about her, but you might be able to ask him about it later once you gained more experience.

Third[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You mentioned something about your wife before?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I don't want to talk about that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Sorry. Maybe we can talk about it later.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Maybe, but I doubt it. I'm made stubborn that way.

This response ends the dialog. Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Well, I do. Spit it out, already. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't want to pry, but...
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Now that's a unique method of getting someone to talk. Thunder about like a bantha in a circuit shop. Does that work for you often? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yes you do. You may mean well enough, but my private affairs are just that: private.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Let me tell you something. Once you've lived as many years as I have, you'll have yourself a long, long list of memories. If you're lucky, most of them will be good. If you're not, some will be bad. If you're really unlucky, some will be so bad you never want to be reminded of them again... ever. You'll go far away, to a place that doesn't hold any memories at all. And there you'll be happy just to forget and be forgotten.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I would never do that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, I want to hear what you have to say. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Is that why you went to Kashyyyk? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Run away? How pathetic and weak.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You say that now, but I'm talking to you from across the breadth of many years experience. That is a gap I simply can't cross for you. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Heh. Partly, maybe. I doubt I could ever explain it to you fully, even if I wanted to. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: There are worse things to call yourself, for better reasons. If you don't think it's even possible that you might be flinging those words at yourself one day, you're younger than I thought.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Let me ask you this: have you ever been in love? Truly in love, I mean, and not simple infatuation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well...
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Exactly. You're still at the beginning of your life. There will be women in your life... perhaps many women... but if you're fortunate you'll find love once. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Exactly. You're still at the beginning of your life. There will be men in your life... perhaps many men... but if you're fortunate you'll find love once.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: The Jedi, with their damnable sense of over-caution, would tell you love is something to avoid. Thankfully, anyone who's even partially alive knows that's not true.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Aren't you worried about the dark side at all? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's what I've always thought. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What's this? Love advice from an old Jedi?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: And why not? All this nonsense about avoiding love is so much foo-foo. I shouldn't be the only one who realizes that.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled... but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love... that's what they should teach you to beware. But love, itself, will save you... not condemn you. Ahhhh, but listen to me go on as if I had all the answers. What do I know of love anymore? I'm just a lonely old man who's not even a Jedi.

The following response completes this quest prematurely:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You talk too much, old man. You don't know anything.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Don't I? Hmph. Maybe you're right. It seems whatever I have to say is falling on deaf ears, anyhow. So go on, go on, run amok and kiss the bantha for all I care, I won't comment on it.

For some reason, Jolee isn't about to talk to you anymore. He will accompany you on your mission, but his thoughts and his story are his own.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Sounds like love is something you should have avoided. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I want to hear what you have to say. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Not even a Jedi? You mean not anymore, right?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. Maybe. Do you want to avoid the greatest things in life simply because they come with some complications? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You do, do you? I wouldn't listen too closely... I'm no authority on anything. I just think that the greatest things in life shouldn't be avoided because they come with a few complications. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nope. Never was. Technically I never rose above the rank of Padawan, for various reasons. Does that surprise you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Not the way you describe your past, no. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You seem to have all the abilities of a Jedi... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Yes. You lied to me.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Heh. I suppose I'm not prone to live my life like most of the Jedi Masters do, that's true. My opinions on love are no different. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: In my case, becoming a Jedi would have been a formality. I doubt the order and I would have gotten along well, considering my opinions on things such as love. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No I didn't. I may never have become a Jedi technically, but I'm an old Padawan with a lifetime of experience. That applies both to the Force as well as topics like love.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Love causes pain, certainly. Inevitably love is going to lead to as much sorrow and regret as it does joy. I suppose there are perfect, eternal loves out there... but I haven't seen any. How you deal with the bad part of love is what determines your character, what determines the dark side's hold over you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You don't think love can work? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Maybe the Jedi just think you shouldn't take that risk. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So what happened between you and your wife, then?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I suppose it could. It would take a strong person to make that kind of commitment, I think. Someone with a great sense of self. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Bah. A life without risk is boring. Is that how you want to live? You want love, you've got to fight for it. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I haven't changed my mind. I'm still not going to talk about it. You go and find your own love if you want to know so badly.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'll tell you one thing: sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you and the one you love simply aren't meant to be together. The trick is to know when that is, to know when it's time to fight and when it's time to part ways. Hmph... there I go waxing philosophical again. Somebody blast me already! Let's get going before I start talking in riddles, dammit!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
Jolee talked a little bit about his wife and why he didn't agree with the Jedi credo that love should be forbidden. He spoke of the Jedi with a great deal of bitterness, in fact. You might be able to ask him about it later, once you gained more experience.

Fourth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why did you leave the Jedi?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Heh heh. Who said I left the Jedi?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You did. You said you weren't a Jedi any longer. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you saying you're still a Jedi? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Don't play games with me, old man.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, technically, I was only a Padawan... not that that makes a difference to most. But as for the order, itself... no, I never left it. It left *me*. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Don't get so uppity, dammit! The point I was trying to make, if you decide to actually listen, is that I never left the order. The order left *me*.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean 'it left you'? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That's about the dumbest thing I ever heard. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So are you a Jedi or not?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, is it? Hmph. There are moments when I think you must be much older than you seem... but this isn't one of them. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Something wrong with your ears? I thought folks only went deaf when they got to my age. I follow the Jedi Way and use the Force, don't I? That makes me a Jedi last time I checked. But the order, itself, the Jedi Council and so forth... no, I'm not a part of that and haven't been for a long time. And good riddance, I say!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But you said the Jedi left you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why good riddance? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So you're just some rogue Jedi. Big deal.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. A rogue, am I? You speak as if there must be something wrong with me, like not being part of the order makes me a criminal.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You know what I hate? Well... you know, lots of things, really. But I'm old and easily annoyed. But that's beside the point. What I *really* hate are how most people view the Jedi. Everyone thinks the Jedi are perfect, that they can do no wrong. They think the Jedi Council is completely incapable of injustice.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I certainly don't think that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Let me guess: you disagree? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You? Perfect? That's a laugh.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. I guess you aren't as stupid as you sometimes act. No doubt you've been on the receiving end of Jedi justice at least once, eh? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Damn right I disagree. The Jedi are just as capable of injustice as anyone else. They may *try* harder, sure, but sometimes they get it wrong. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Quiet, you. I'm not talking about me. Talking about the Jedi as a whole. They are just as capable of imperfection and injustice as anyone else, as you can obviously see.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: And I'm not even talking about how some of us fall to the dark side. No, that's plenty indication of our fallibility, but it's something else entirely. No, I'm talking about how, more often than not, your average robe-wearing Jedi can try to do the right thing and still be completely *wrong*.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't get it. What do you mean? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So the Jedi wronged you in some way, I take it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Nobody can be right about everything.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: *sigh* I suppose I'm not being very clear, am I? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, no. The Jedi always treated me well. It would be foolish and untrue to say otherwise. That's not what I meant, anyway. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: That's true, but it's not what I meant. I guess I'm not being clear, am I?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Come to think of it, I don't have to be clear. Someone my age is entitled to ramble, dammit! But for your sake I'll try to explain. I'll tell you a little tale about a Jedi Master I once knew. Hortath, I think. Or was it Hartoth? I could never get it straight...

The following sequence of responses completes this quest prematurely:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I don't have time for any stupid stories.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You're the one who was asking me about the Jedi, dammit! Now do you want the story or not?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No. Can't be bothered.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Boring you, am I? Well you just keep your questions to yourself next time. No need for old men to go and make nuisances of themselves.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
For some reason, Jolee isn't about to talk to you anymore. He will accompany you on your mission, but his thoughts and his story are his own.

Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Go on, I'll listen. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Is this going to have a point? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine, fine, but make it quick.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: *Sigh* You know the problem with the youth of today? They're young.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Where was I, then? Oh. Oh, yes... Master Hortath. He was a kindly old Jedi who meant well, but the most near-sighted thing in the Core, I swear. He would walk into walls, knock over tables, mistake apprentices for rancor beasts... that sort of thing. And he was too proud to submit to proper treatment. Some used to counsel him and urged "Use the Force, Master Hortath. Allow the Force to see for you." But he refused to believe that his eyes were failing. He simply squinted more and more as the years went on, the other Jedi resignedly passing it off as the amusing quirk of a compassionate old man.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And? I don't get it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Is this supposed to have a point? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Go on.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'm not finished yet! Now shush.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So one day a young Padawan meets Master Hortath in the courtyard and, not knowing of his blindness, asks him for directions to the Council. Quite sure of himself, Hortath gave the lad directions... which happened to lead outside and away from the enclave. The Padawan is confused, naturally. He asks if Master Hortath is sure, and of course Master Hortath says that he is. The Padawan suggests that perhaps he should ask someone else... but the proud Hortath now feels insulted. He tells the Padawan to take the route he prescribed and no other. Rather dejectedly, the Padawan did as he was told... and so ended up leaving the Jedi Order forever. It was decided that the boy's fate was to leave the Order anyway... though whether that was out of respect for Hortath or because the boy went on to something else, well, we'll never know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So what does the Padawan leaving the Jedi have to do with the Jedi leaving you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So... you knew this Master Hortath? Or the Padawan? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So what's the point? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. That's a stupid story.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Not much. I never knew the Padawan nor met Master Hortath, himself. He was before my time. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, no. Both of them were from before my time. Well before the Sith Wars, even. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Considering that it's about blindness, I think that's an appropriate response.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't understand...
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: The tale is about blindness and I thought the point was clear. At any rate, you think about it.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You're the one who asked why the Jedi left me, remember? Now let's get going. My feet are itching for a good run.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You successfully got Jolee to talk about the Jedi, and he told a tale about how they are often less than perfect. He might talk some more if you ask later, once you've gained more experience.

Fifth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you know about the Sith?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Bad, bad men. Women, too, to be fair.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You must know more than that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not in the mood to play games.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, indeed. They make a fine sandwich, also. Heh heh heh. But don't tell the Jedi Council I said that. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Who's playing games? Ask the next Sith you see if they're bad and they'll set you straight.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you know anything important about the Sith or not? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're being elusive on purpose. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Spit it out, old man, or things get rough.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: *sigh* And just what gave you the impression that I know anything more about the Sith than you do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You did. You said you fought them.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh... that's right. Damn the ears of the young! I was expecting you to be your usual inattentive self when I mentioned that. So it's true, yes, I fought plenty of Sith. That was during the time of Exar Kun... oh, forty years ago now? Has it been that long?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are these the same Sith that we're fighting now?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, no, of course not. The Sith have come and gone for ages. They were not called Sith many thousands of years ago, perhaps, but the dark side was always present without a doubt. Oh, sure, occasionally the light side comes close to vanquishing the dark, but the dark always returns. The fact that Exar Kun was defeated didn't mean the Sith would never return, as they obviously have now. Everyone knows that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Who is this Exar Kun?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Ah. Exar was a Jedi who was... corrupted... by ghosts of the old Sith. Or so they say. He attempted to conquer the Republic and create a new Golden Age of the Sith.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And he was killed?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Better to say he was defeated... but essentially, yes. The victory did not come easily, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So tell me what you know about the Sith.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: A Sith believes he commands the Force... but it is the dark side who commands him. You know this, there is little I could truly add.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What happened during the war with Exar Kun, then?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: That... is not a pleasant time to remember. After Exar Kun fell to the dark side, he attempted to recruit other Jedi to his cause. What surprised us... what took us completely unprepared... was how utterly successful he was. Many Jedi joined him and became Sith, themselves. Why they did I... I will never truly know. But they did. Battle broke out throughout the order... pupil against master, we fought ourselves...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. This isn't going to be more sad moaning, is it?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I've often held the opinion that history has one basic flaw: it is seldom heeded. So go on and greet the world with your spite. Let's see where it takes you. You certainly don't need to hear any more from me.

For some reason, Jolee isn't about to talk to you anymore. He will accompany you on your mission, but his thoughts and his story are his own.

That response completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That must have been difficult. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But you exterminated all the traitors, right?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yes. More than difficult... next to impossible. How do you fight against someone you love? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Easy now to call them traitors. Tell me... how do you fight against someone that you love?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Bah. I dislike such memories. It leaves a taste in the mouth that... it is a sadness I thought I had put aside long ago. Ask me again about the war some other time. Just... not now. I would prefer to be by myself for now.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
Jolee talked about the Sith and mentioned that he had been involved in the Sith War involving the infamous Dark Jedi, Exar Kun. It was obviously an unpleasant memory for him, however, and he told you to ask him about it later when you gained more experience.

Sixth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk about the war now?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Not particularly.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'll ask you some other time, then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You said you'd tell me later... so spit it out already.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmm. Such a charming and persuasive manner you have there. Forget it!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Fine. Have it your way.

Jolee needs to be persuaded to talk:

Easy 2. [Persuade] No time like the present? Easy 1. [Persuade] Okay, here I am asking nicely.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: [Failure] *Sigh* I'm not interested in your demands. I'll tell my story when I'm damn good and ready… which isn't now, so shoo!

However, you always have at least 40% chance of success, regardless of Persuade rank or character level, and even if you fail you can just try again:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: [Success] I suppose you're going to nag me until I cough it up, aren't you? Nothing is private anymore, it looks like. *sigh* There's no escaping it, I guess. So be it. My wife's name was Nayama. She was the Ukatis enforcer who shot me out of the sky, if you remember.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Um... no, I don't remember.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Bah. You got ears that work, don't you? I was a smuggler, way way back. I got shot down once over Ukatis. THAT story, yes.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What does your wife have to do with the war? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Are you going senile? I didn't ask about your wife, old man.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No I'm not senile, dammit! Not yet, anyway. Hmmm... well at least I don't think so. At any rate, I'll tell the story the way I want to.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: My wife had plenty to do with the war. Upon meeting her, I knew right away that she was strong in the Force. That's why she was able to shoot me down. Nayama was a marvel of a woman. Fiery, determined, smart... she dragged me to the capital and foiled three of my attempts to escape prison. Oh, and that body...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The war...?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well... yes, that. Needless to say I eventually won her over. That was after I kidnapped her upon being broken out of the Ukatis prison, mind you. But uh, that's another story entirely. At any rate, I wanted to train her in the Jedi way. The Council refused my request, naturally. I was still a Padawan at the time. I was an experienced Padawan, surely... but not yet ready to be a full Jedi and certainly not ready to train another. Especially not one so old as my wife.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You disobeyed the Jedi Council? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you're saying you were an idiot. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And what did she think of all this?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I did. I wasn't the first and I won't be the last. The problem with self-righteous folk is they think they're more right than everyone else. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Easy to say so now. At the time I just thought I was right. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nayama was intrigued by the idea of becoming a Jedi. She liked the idea of power too much, perhaps, but I certainly didn't see that at the time.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I believed in her and trained her in secret. I ignored her willful nature... I loved her too much to see fault in her. And she loved me, too. I know she did. At the time, our love was a shared bliss... better than anything I had known before or since.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So what happened?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Exar Kun is what happened. Nayama was inspired by Exar's promises of a new Golden Age. She wanted to join him. She came to me, pleading with me to throw aside what she called the decrepit trappings of the Jedi... to join her in Exar's war.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So she had fallen to the dark side? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What did you do? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you killed her, of course.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I... hadn't thought so. Not right then. I was too proud to believe that of her. I had trained her myself... I loved her. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No of course I didn't kill her. How could I? I pleaded with her to reconsider, to think about what she was doing.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I pleaded with her to reconsider, to think about all that she was throwing away... to think about what she would become.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: She would have none of it. Finally, in frustration, she attacked me. She drew her lightsaber and attempted to strike me down. It was a scene being repeated everywhere throughout the galaxy. Pupil against master. In my case... it was a long and terrible battle, but I defeated her.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You killed her?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No... no. I had her at my mercy, disarmed and defenseless. She looked up at me and she knew... she knew I couldn't do it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't think I could have, either. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But... she was a Sith then, right? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You were a fool.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: But I should have. Sometimes I convince myself otherwise... but it's no use. She had fallen to the dark side when she raised her saber against me. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yes. I think she truly fell the moment she raised up her saber against me. I have played that instant in my head... so many times. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Was I? Sometimes I convince myself that I couldn't have done otherwise... that I couldn't have seen that she had truly fallen to the dark side. But, yes, I was a fool.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: And I let her go. To my shame, she went on to kill many Jedi during the war until she, herself, was slain in the final battle. I grieved for her death, inevitable as it was, even as the Jedi Council put me on trial for my actions once the war was over.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. They put you on trial?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I had trained Nayama against their wishes. I had failed to kill her when I had the chance, and she went on to kill others. Not to mention that I had remained a Padawan throughout the war. A formality, perhaps, but with the trial it had to be decided if I was worthy to become a Jeid at all. It was a travesty, of course. I told you that even the Jedi were capable of great injustices, didn't I?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So that's the source of all this bitterness? They found you guilty? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you think you didn't deserve to be punished? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I can't believe they tried you for that!
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Not at all. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Of course I deserved to be punished. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: But I deserved to be tried.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: They found me innocent. Even though I... deserved every punishment and more... they let me go. Mitigating circumstances, they said. I deserved compassion, they said. They said I had learned wisdom the hard way. For all I had done during the war, they wished to raise me to full Jedi status at long last. That... that was when the Jedi left me. That was when they failed me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't understand... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, you're wrong! You did deserve compassion! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You should have been happy you got off.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No. Maybe you don't, at that. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: For my pride? For my cowardice? Which do you think is the act more befitting a Jedi?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: They may have been able to forgive me. I... could never forgive myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And you still believe love is worth the risk?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I... Yes, I do, I suppose. Does that surprise you? Ahhh... it is so long ago. Lost in the winds, I suppose. Nobody cares what an old man believes anymore, do they? Let's continue on with the task at hand. I would prefer to think of the present today.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You successfully convinced Jolee to talk about the Sith War, how his wife turned to the dark side... and how he ultimately abandoned the order for not holding him as responsible for her actions as he held himself. You might be able to ask him more about his past a little later, once you have gained more experience.

Seventh[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So when did you go to Kashyyyk?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Oh, that was not until many years later, to tell the truth. I spent quite some time wandering the galaxy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The Jedi just let you go? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You were adventuring again, I take it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Let me guess. Traveling from planet to planet, doing good deeds...
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Why wouldn't they? I had refused my promotion to Jedi... I was a Padawan who had left the Order, nothing more. I traveled from one civilized system to the next, never staying long. I don't even think I knew what I was searching for. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nothing so extravagant. I merely traveled from place to place... I don't even think I knew what I was searching for.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: It wasn't as if my travels were pleasant, either. There were plenty of folks who distrusted the Jedi after the war... or worse.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Worse? What could be worse? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. With good reason, I imagine. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't see why you were wandering in the first place.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I suppose so. Not everyone would understand why the Jedi would suddenly start killing themselves and tearing up half the galaxy, would they? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I was lost. I couldn't conceive of returning to the Jedi, so what would you propose I'd done?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: If people weren't treating me with suspicion, they were looking at me with greed. I don't know how many thought they could make use of me for their own ends. I got so sick of the treachery and deceit I left the civilized parts of the galaxy and headed instead for the uncivilized parts.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So that's when you went to Kashyyyk?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Actually I was on my way somewhere else when I crash-landed on Kashyyyk. The ship I was using was a rust-bucket.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You survived a crash-landing on Kashyyyk?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'd taken some damage passing through an unexpected asteroid field, as I recall, but I wasn't completely without some systems. I could still guide her a bit when I crashed. It wasn't what I would call the smoothest landing, especially considering I ended up smack in the depths of the Shadowlands. But I lived.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why didn't you just fix your ship and keep going?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. I'm no mechanic. And besides, after you plunge nose-first into the trunk of a five-kilometer high tree, chances are you don't have much ship left.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So you crashed... and stayed?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Sure, why not? It seemed like an interesting enough place to spend a couple of decades exploring.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How did you survive in the Shadowlands?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmmm. That was a challenge at first. You've seen the kind of creatures that exist down there... and you missed the really big ones. I was still able to rely on the Force to keep me safe for the most part. The rest of the trick is keeping out of the way of most of the predators.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It couldn't have been easy.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, that's true. Still... most of the creatures grew accustomed to me, and I to them. At least none of them ever heard of a Jedi.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're completely insane, you know that?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Bah, what do you know? I'd done enough wandering by that point, thank you very much. I felt at peace in the Shadowlands.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And the Wookiees didn't mind your presence?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: They did at first, oh yes. I can't say I was overly pleased to encounter a group of indigenous giant carpets either, I can assure you of that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you fight them? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You seemed on fairly peaceful terms with them. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You could have ruled them, you know.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: No, no. I was the intruder in their land, after all. They got to trust me well enough after a couple of decades of my aid. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well that was after two decades of helping them. They certainly didn't trust me at first. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: And why would I have been interested in that? You can't spend five minutes in a Wookiee village without coming out smelling like wet fur. No, no, let them rule themselves. They can screw up their history just like every other race before them. No, I helped them in other ways.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You helped them?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: When I could. I would assist the few young ones who would get lost in the Shadowlands or attacked unexpectedly by the wildlife. I must say... for a while there, the Wookiees actually thought I was some kind of benevolent forest god. Amusing, really. I set them straight eventually.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why didn't you stop the slavery of the Wookiees, then?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: At first, when the slavers took to hunting down lone Wookiees in the fringes of the Shadowlands, I did my best to divert them. Later, when Chuundar made his deal I didn't see any point. I wasn't here to save them from their own sad follies, after all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It sounds like you enjoyed being a god.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Nonsense. I had no idea that's what they were thinking for a long time. I just thought they were being friendly neighbors, leaving fruit and such for me. Later, when I started to understand some of their grunting, I realized they would say prayers to the 'hairless one' before descending into the forest. Hmph. Hairless one. I used to have plenty of hair, I tell you. *Ahem* Well, at any rate, it took a few bruises, but I set the record straight.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. A few bruises?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I traveled to Rwookrrorro and met with the chieftain in front of everyone. Freyyr swatted at me just to see if I was real or not. I was real, and while it was a light swat, Wookiees are terribly strong. I was knocked out cold for a day. The Wookiees all thought it was quite funny.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Wasn't it all a bit primitive for you?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Not really. Kashyyyk is a place you can feel very small in. It felt good to devote my time to helping people and living simply.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And you didn't receive any news from the outside? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You spent two decades living like that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I still think you're insane.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: What can I say? I did it all for the Wookiees.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The Wookiees?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: The Wookiees. Well, okay, maybe I needed some time on a quiet and remote planet... but if you ever need a friend, an incredibly strong hairball isn't a bad call.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You are a very strange old man. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You sound quite fond of them. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I regret asking you about this, now.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Why, thank you. You're not so bad, yourself, all things considered. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I suppose I am, in a way, despite the smell. For a race of gardeners, they've developed quite interestingly. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: See? Now you know how I feel half the time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Gardeners?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You remember the alien computer, correct? Kashyyyk was meant to be an agricultural planet. The Wookiees were made for a reason. Or, at least, that's what I'm thinking. But I'm an old man who's had a long time to develop that opinion, so don't argue with me.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: At any rate, we should be moving along, don't you think? If you sat around this long in the Shadowlands, a tach would eat you.

You asked Jolee a little about his time on Kashyyyk. You can ask him more about it later, once you've gained more experience.

Eighth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So if you liked Kashyyyk so much, why did you want to leave?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Are we back to *that* again?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I find it hard to believe you left the Wookiees just for some adventure. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want a reason why I shouldn't just drop you off somewhere. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Am I really all that interesting to you?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmmm... what's the best way for me to approach this? Ah, perhaps it's time for a little story...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Oh, no, not another story! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Couldn't you just answer the question for once? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget I asked anything... I refuse to listen!
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You just keep quiet there, you! I've had to put up with all your busy-body questions, haven't I? Well, now you'll listen to a story, dammit! *ahem* Now where was I? Oh yes, the story... you almost made me forget about it. Nice try, but I'm not that old just yet. Heh heh. Now, then. A young man sees a terribly venomous snake in his small village. Nervous, he watches the snake carefully until it leaves. The young man follows the snake into the forest. He clears the branches out of its path and helps it over obstacles. He even works to keep it fed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. This is a very long story.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Shush! Many nights pass and still the young man continues to follow the snake. He even follows it into the sands of the great desert. In the desert, the snake eventually grows hungry. It turns and bites the young man, its poison quickly working its way into his system. Finally curious, the snake looks at the boy as he lays dying and asks, "Why were you foolish enough to follow me all the way out into the desert?" The boy looks back and replies, "Did I follow you? I thought I was leading you away from everyone else..." And then he died.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Am I supposed to be the snake?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, now, that's what I wanted to see for myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's a long way to come just to risk dying. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not a snake, I can assure you of that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Are you saying you're frightened of me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. And what's your judgement so far?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I've come a long way as it is, and I'm going to die anyway so that doesn't bother me in the least. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, then... let's hope you're not the young man, either. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: The real question is whether or not I'm as frightened as I should be, isn't it?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I've told you before that you have a destiny before you. This does not mean, however, that your future is already written. They are not the same thing. You have the choice of which direction you take your destiny in. More than engine-sucking Andor, certainly... but even he had a choice.

Alignment < 40 means you've chosen to take a darker path:

KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So far you've chosen to take a darker path. You know the consequences of that… we'll see if you decide to stay your course. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: So far you've chosen to take the lighter path. Can you stay that course, even through the challenges ahead? We'll have to wait and see.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I'm not here to judge you or tell you which path to take. I'm here ready to offer you my help... should you ask for it. I do that because I think it's important. More important than remaining in my home and pretending the galaxy doesn't exist. That's why I'm here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Thank you, Jolee. I'm glad you came. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But I don't need you, really. You're wasting your time. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'd prefer you were safe... elsewhere.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Heh. I'm rather glad I came, too, really. You're a fine young lad. I hope... I hope things turn out well for you. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Heh. I'm rather glad I came, too, really. You're a fine young lass. I hope... I hope things turn out well for you. KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hmph. So you say, but it's my time to waste. Perhaps I can influence your decision, perhaps not... only time will tell, won't it? KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: That's very kind of you, but while elsewhere may be safer, elsewhere isn't where I think I should be. Besides... what's an old man to fear from death, eh?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Now, then... I've chatted enough for one lifetime. Let's get this show on the road, shall we?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
You've dragged more out of Jolee about his past than he probably intended... and he has no more tales to tell you, for now. Perhaps once your mission is complete and your destiny finally realized you can talk more.

Banter[edit]

Jolee may speak to other party members as well when both are in your party:

Bastila
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Jolee, may I have a moment? There is something I wish to speak to you about.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yep, I figured it was only a matter of time until we had the whole "come back to the Order" discussion. Well, I guess there's no avoiding it now, so let's get it over with.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I know you have... issues... with the Order. But you are a Jedi, Jolee. You command the Force. Without the guidance of the Council how can you avoid falling to the dark side?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Well, I've managed to avoid it the last 20 years or so. Besides, light side, dark side: they don't mean the same to me as they do to you. I don't see in absolutes.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Malak and the Sith are evil, Jolee! Surely you can see that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you don't have a problem with Malak and the Sith? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Of course! Malak isn't evil, he's just misunderstood!
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: I want to stop Malak as much as anyone. But I don't have to join the Order to do it. Look at Carth, or Canderous. They're with us in this quest, but they aren't Jedi. The capacity for good or evil, like the Force itself, is in all living creatures. And belonging to the Jedi Order, or the Sith, or any group, won't change what you are at your core.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I see you are quite adamant. No doubt you've had ample time to think on this during your long seclusion. I guess it was foolish of me to think I could sway your position so easily.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yeah, I'm old and stubborn. But I appreciate the effort. But from now on you can just think of me as any other non-Jedi in our little group - with a lightsaber. And Force powers.
Carth
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So, Jolee, you decided to leave your little hermitage in the forest and come help us stop the Sith. I guess you realized this was worth coming out of retirement for, huh?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Yeah, that's right, sonny. The Sith are the greatest evil to hit the galaxy since, well, the Mandalorians. And they're the worst thing since Exar Kun. Blah, blah, blah, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Okay, old man, you lost me there. Are you trying to make a point?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you saying what we're doing isn't important? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. If you feel that way, why did you come with us? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I think it's pretty clear that Malak is the tyrant in this case.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Malak is a tyrant who should be stopped. If he conquers the galaxy we're in for a couple of rough centuries. Eventually it'll come around again, but I'd rather not wait that long. So we do what we have to do, and we try to stop the Sith. But don't start thinking this war - your war - is more important than any other war just because you're in it.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That's an interesting theory, but I don't buy it. The Republic stands for something; it's stood for something for fifteen thousand years. And if it falls, everything will change forever.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You believe whatever you need to to get you through this, sonny. The bottom line is we both want to stop Malak, so let's not get hung up on the details. Let's just get back to stopping him.
