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

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?
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...
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'?

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.
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:

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.
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.
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?

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:

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?
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.
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.

That response completes this quest prematurely. Otherwise:

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?

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:

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?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Jolee Bindo
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?

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.
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:

Commentary[edit]

Even if you don't speak to Jolee directly he may comment during dialog when in your party, although unlocking this may also be conditional on others being added or removed, among other things:
