Map of the west Lower City apartments

Lower City[edit]

These apartments have a similar layout to the south apartments, with five apartments on the outer wall of an apartment complex ring and an elevator back to the Lower City. You need to return there to return to hideout or change party selection.

As you enter for the first time, you see Calo Nord confronting two Rodians to your left:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rodian: You seem to be taking great interest in our progress. Do you need something, little man?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rodian: Quiet, Luugro! That's Calo Nord, the infamous bounty hunter!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Calo Nord: There's a bounty in your little green heads. I'm here to collect.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rodian: The only way you'll collect that bounty is over our cold, dead bodies!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Calo Nord: That's the plan.

He draws two blasters and guns down Luugro, then the second Rodian, before turning and leaving.

The apartment complex ring is patrolled in a clockwise direction by a Vulkar enforcer and two Black Vulkars. They start on the opposite side to the elevator, and if you also travel in a clockwise direction you may never encounter them... or if you're slow, they may come up behind you:

The Vulkar enforcer uses an Energy Shield, but you may be able to damage or even kill him in the first combat round with blaster fire before he does so. Otherwise, use of melee weapons or ion blasters or rifles is advised until the shield goes down.

Two other groups of 2-3 Black Vulkars spawn around the apartment complex ring: one just to the north of the southwest apartment, and the other to the north of the northwest apartment containing the Sealed Strongbox. These groups may contain up to any three of the following:

The number in each group depends on your character level, and that of your party: when character level > 6, three Black Vulkars always spawn in each group. Both groups spawn when you travel clockwise, but when you travel counter-clockwise they won't spawn until you make your second circuit (or travel in the opposite direction).

Selven's Apartment[edit]

The northeast apartment is locked:

Security Low Security Door Unlock 12 (0) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 20

A woman will challenge you upon entry:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: Stop right there, or I'll give you a blaster bolt right between the eyes! Now what are you doing here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: No. I'm the one with the blaster pointed at you. I get to ask the questions. Now – what are you doing here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I was just exploring. I didn't know anyone was in here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: Well go explore somewhere else. There's nothing interesting for you in here. This is your only warning – if you bother me again, you won't walk out of here alive!

Those are the only responses which avoid a fight. Otherwise...

Selven's Bounty[edit]

If you try to enter or speak to her again, or make any other response, she attacks you:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: I gave you a chance to get out of here and leave me alone, but I guess you're just too stupid to take it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You can't talk to the Sith like that! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'm here to collect the bounty on your head, Selven! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I'm just here to rob the place.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: You think I care if you’re with the Sith? I've killed plenty of your kind before and I've got no problem doing it again! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: You're a fool if you think you can collect the price on my head! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: Bad luck for you that you picked my apartment then.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Selven: Now you'll see why I'm the most dangerous assassin on Taris!

Strangely, Selven uses both Rapid Shot and Master Rapid Shot (but not Improved Rapid Shot). If you were already aware of her bounty:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Selven's Bounty
Selven is dead. Now all you have to do is go back to Zax to collect her bounty.

Otherwise, you won't know about it until you've been to the bounty office in Javyar's cantina in the Lower City and spoken to Zax about his bounties.

Sealed Strongbox[edit]

The northwest apartment has a sealed strongbox in its west corner, which is mined:

Awareness Minor Gas Mine Detect 20 (0) Demolitions Disable 20 (0) Recover 30 (10)

This needs to be recovered, disabled or triggered to access the sealed strongbox. There's also a desk against the southwest wall:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Desk: This is an electronic personal message center, though it looks like it hasn't been used in some time. There is one unread message on the system.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Read message.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Desk: Hey, Elam! How's life on Taris? I heard your brother left for Tatooine to become a miner. Did he at least leave Hyperdrive behind to keep you company?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Desk: I hope you're still practicing with that blaster I gave you. Remember what I taught you, because you might need it. Taris isn't like Alderaan: it can be dangerous there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Desk: Stay away from those swoop gangs, and keep everything locked up in that old strongbox. Nobody's going to be busting into that thing! Hope to hear from you soon, Uncle Louie

This electronic personal message center gives you the information you need to enter the proper password responses to disable the lock of the sealed strongbox (there's no other way to do so):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sealed Strongbox: [This strongbox is of particularly sturdy construction. The lock is a computerized touch panel that uses a password entry system. Because this box is an older, off-planet model there is no interface for you to try and slice the system. You'll have to figure out the password if you want to get inside.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Try to enter the password.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sealed Strongbox: THIS STRONGBOX IS THE PROPERTY OF ELAM MATTIC. ACCESS NOT PERMITTED TO UNAUTHORIZED USERS! PLEASE ENTER PROPER PASSWORD RESPONSES TO CONFIRM IDENTITY:

If you don't enter all the proper password responses:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sealed Strongbox: ONE OR MORE OF THE PASSWORDS WAS INCORRECT! IDENTITY NOT CONFIRMED!

If you make a mistake, there's nothing to stop you trying again as many times as is necessary to enter all the proper password responses (although there are 216 possible combinations):

There's also a footlocker in an alcove in the north corner to the right of the entrance, which is mined:

Awareness Minor Frag Mine Detect 20 (0) Demolitions Disable 20 (0) Recover 30 (10)

If you're careful, it's possible to edge around the mine without setting it off to open the footlocker, which has random contents.
