Map of the Sandral estate

After completing your Jedi Trials and being ordered by Master Vandar Tokare of the Jedi Council to investigate some strange Ruins on Dantooine, Ahlan Matale bursts into the Council chambers to speak with them before you can leave:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Ahlan Matale has approached the Jedi Council and demanded action. He believes that the head of the rival Sandral family, Nurik Sandral, has kidnapped his son. The Jedi Council has decreed that you may investigate the disappearance so long as it does not detract from your main quest.

If you decide to complete this quest then you need to do so before acquiring a fourth Star Map, although a light side character who wants to complete the Genoharadan quests later should wait until after completing them. If you speak to Master Vandar again before completing your investigation of the ruins:

You can also speak to Master Vrook Lamar about it after completing your investigation of the ruins and reporting to Master Vandar:

Exit the Jedi enclave again via its outer courtyard and travel via either path south to the Matale grounds, or transit back to the grove and travel there via either path north.

Dead Settler[edit]

This quest is optional even in the context of the Sandral-Matale feud, but you receive experience and credits for completing it, and can move closer to the light or dark side of the Force.

Matale Grounds[edit]

In the middle of the plain at the east end of the Matale Grounds, three kath hounds are now gathered by a dead settler:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Dead Settler
You have found the body of Casus Sandral. The journal you found on the body tells that he was an amateur archaeologist who was investigating strange ruins across Dantooine. By the wounds on his body, it would seem that he was mauled to death by kath hounds.

This is the diary of Casus Sandral, amateur archeologist. It details his efforts to discover the source of the ancient ruins found across the surface of Dantooine. Upon reading it, you gather that he had found some correlation between the ruins and something called the 'Rak'.

The Matale estate is in the center of the Matale grounds, and you can now tell the Matale droid guarding its west door that you wish to speak to Ahlan Matale:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The Jedi cannot be bought! I will remain neutral despite your attempted bribe! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I understand you are upset, Ahlan Matale. Rest assured I will find Shen. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
3. Make it 2,000 and you have a deal.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
You have spoken to Ahlan Matale and he is very adamant about his belief that the Sandrals to the south are behind the disappearance of his son Shen.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 150 Spoken to Ahlan Matale
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Matale Droid: Return the young Master Matale to this estate. His father may order preemptive action if this is not done.

Sandral Grounds[edit]

Leave the Matale grounds via either path south and travel across the Grove to the Sandral Grounds beyond: the Sandral estate is in the midst of the plain at the west end. You can now enter after speaking to the Sandral droid guarding its north door:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sandral Droid: Nurik left orders he was not to be disturbed, but given the circumstances I will make an exception. Go into the main hall. Nurik will meet with you there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: I trust you will show yourself out. If not, my security droids will be sure to deal with you.

Otherwise, if you found the Dead Settler at the east end of the Matale grounds:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your son Casus is dead. I have seen his body.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: Casus... is dead? I was afraid of this, yet in my heart I knew it must be true. What... what happened to my son?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He was killed by kath hounds while exploring the Dantooine ruins. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. Casus is a kath hound chew toy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: Are all Jedi so callous towards those who grieve? No matter. Your cruel words hurt me no more than the news itself.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Here is the diary, Nurik, but you may keep your money. I need no reward for this task.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Here is the diary.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Mighty generous of you. A little too generous, if you ask me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: I thank you for this. The diary is all I have left of my son.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 100

Otherwise:

Medium 3. [Persuade] Make it two hundred and you have a deal. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: We have nothing further to discuss. Please, leave me to my grief.

If you don't tell him his son Casus is dead, then after speaking to his daughter Rahasia you can tell his droid:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Dead Settler
You have given Casus' journal to his father, Nurik. This may help ease the pain of his loss.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Given Casus' journal to his father

Sandral Estate[edit]

As Nurik Sandral exits the main hall via the door in the middle of its south wall, his daughter Rahasia Sandral enters:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rahasia Sandral: You are here from the Council, are you not? Looking for Shen Matale?
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. What I do is my own business, so back off!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't have time to listen to this.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
You have spoken to Nurik Sandral and his daughter Rahasia. Nurik denies any involvement in Shen's disappearance. His daughter Rahasia came and tried to speak to you, but you must have said something wrong and now she's sulking.

If you continue speaking to her, or do so after apologizing:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +6
1. I have come to apologize for my earlier behavior.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. This isn't my problem.

If you speak to her again, she repeats most of the following:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
You have spoken to Nurik Sandral and his daughter Rahasia. Nurik denies any involvement in Shen's disappearance, but Rahasia tells another story. She says that her father has captured Shen because he believes that Ahlan has his own son, Casus. Shen is being held in the Sandral estate, and Rahasia has given you a key to the rear entrance so that you may help him escape.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 300 Spoken to Nurik Sandral and his daughter Rahasia
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Rahasia Sandral
  • Rahasia's Key

This key opens the rear door to the Sandral Estate.

The Sandral droid now stands to the left of the door in the middle of the south wall of the main hall:

[Non-family members are not permitted entrance.]

Exit via the door in the north wall behind you, then use Rahasia's key to open the rear entrance to the Sandral estate in its east wall. The only enemies within the estate are Droids armed with Blaster Pistols and Blaster Rifles, and a couple of minor Mines.

North Hallway[edit]

Through the rear entrance is the east arm of the hallway around the north and east perimeter of the estate. There's a Sandral sentry droid at the south end of the hallway:

There's a footlocker at the foot of the bed by the west wall in the room beyond:

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

Beyond the south door labeled Security Room is the Security Computer Room, while to the north the hallway turns west: the main hall is beyond the door in the north wall, but it's still locked on this side. There are two doors in the south wall: beyond the door labeled Security Room at the west end is the Storage Room, while beyond the east door is Shen's holding cell.

Holding Cell[edit]

The door to Shen's holding cell in the south wall of the north hallway is mined and locked:

Awareness Minor Frag Mine Detect 20 (0) Demolitions Disable 20 (0) Recover 30 (10)
Security Door Unlock 30 (10) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 20

The door can also be opened with a prison key received from a footlocker in the Repair Room to the southwest. Inside is Shen Matale:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Shen says that he will not leave the estate so long as Rahasia stays behind. He fears for what her father may do to her once his escape has been discovered. He claims to lover her.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 150 Spoken to Shen

You left Rahasia back in the main hall, and you can return to her there (although you'll need to return east to exit the estate, then enter again to the north). She can also be found in her room at the north end of the South Hallway, the most direct route to which is through the Storage Room at the west end of the north hallway. In either case:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Rahasia has agreed to meet you and Shen outside the estate. Now all that remains is to get him out of here...
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 300 Spoken to Rahasia

Before returning to the holding cell to speak to Shen again, you may want to explore the rest of the estate as you'll be locked out again once you and he Exit.

Security Computer Room[edit]

Beyond the door labeled Security Room at the south end of the North Hallway is a room containing three Sandral war droids, with a footlocker to the left of a computer panel by the west wall:

You can use the computer panel to view camera feed of the North Hallway, South Hallway, this Security Computer Room, Central Security Room, Storage Room and Repair Room instead of downloading an area schematic. You can also corrupt patrol droid targeting programs in all but this room, and overload computer power conduits in all but the north and south hallways to kill Sandral war droids (and your party in this room, unless one of you uses an Electrical Capacitance Shield for Damage Immunity: 100% vs. Electrical): although you receive experience for droids killed as a result, none is received for Computer Use and the droids aren't nearly dangerous enough to justify the use of so many Computer Spikes.

Beyond the door labeled Security Room at the south end of the room is the east end of the South Hallway.

Storage Room[edit]

Beyond the door labeled Security Room at the west end of the North Hallway is a room containing two Sandral war droids, with two footlockers by the south wall in its southwest corner:

Beyond the door labeled Security Room at the west end of the room is the north end of the South Hallway; beyond the door labeled Security Control Room in the east wall is the central security room.

Central Security Room[edit]

The central security room contains three Sandral war droids like those in the Storage Room beyond the door in its west wall, to the left of which is a large locker, with two footlockers by the east wall in the southeast corner:

Beyond the other door labeled Security Control Room in the south wall is a short hallway ending in another door, beyond which is the south hallway.

South Hallway[edit]

The hallway around the west and south perimeter of the estate can be accessed by going through the Storage Room to the northwest, the Central Security Room to the south and the Security Computer Room to the southeast. Rahasia can be found next door to the storage room at the north end, with a footlocker at the foot of her bed by the east wall:

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

Beyond the two doors labeled Security Room in the east wall to the south and the north wall around the corner to the east is the Repair Room. Beyond the center of the five doors in this north wall to the east is a short hallway leading north to the central security room. Beyond the doors to either side of this hallway are two bedrooms: that on the west side is empty, but that on the east side has a locked footlocker at the foot of the bed by the north wall.

The droid is actively engaged in its patrol route. You cannot reprogram it anymore.

The droid exits via the west door, goes north up the hallway then east through the Storage Room into the Central Security Room, before returning to the hallway to the south and turning west: however, it turns and retraces its steps rather than returning to the repair room or going around the corner to the north again.

Exit[edit]

Upon returning to the Holding Cell to speak to Shen again after speaking to Rahasia, you and he exit the estate to the north to meet her outside: regardless of the outcome, you're now locked out of the estate again.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It was no problem. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Shen's father promised me a reward. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. We should get out of here quickly.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: No, we know that you must have gone to great personal risk to get us out of the Sandral estate undetected. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: What? You're... you're just doing this for the reward? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rahasia Sandral: You're right, we should go as fast as we can. I don't know how long it will be before my father realizes we're gone.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. No reward is necessary.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Money always helps.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: But surely we can... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rahasia Sandral: Very well, we'll see what we... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rahasia Sandral: How could you! I thought you... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: You're right, we should...

You're ambushed by Ahlan Matale, and Nurik Sandral shows up shortly thereafter. Both are flanked by a war droid to either side...

To receive maximum experience (but only half maximum credits, 500 less), you need to be highly persuasive to convince both fathers to allow Shen and Rahasia to stay together:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You two just need to calm down.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Both of you calm down now! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You should try to sort this out together.
Hard 1. [Persuade] Shen is capable of making decisions on his own.
Easy 1. [Persuade] Children grow up and leave eventually.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Shen and Rahasia met outside the Sandral estate, but were ambushed by Ahlan Matale. Shortly thereafter, Nurik Sandral showed up as well. You managed to convince both fathers that this match was for the best and Shen and Rahasia are allowed to stay together now. They thanked you profusely and walked off with their familes.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 500 KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 900 Shen and Rahasia allowed to stay together

If you return to the Matale Estate, or the Jedi Council Chambers in the enclave:

If you start with a more neutral response, subsequently choose different responses or fail to persuade both fathers, then you have two remaining options: the first is for Shen and Rahasia to stay together without reconciling with their families, for which you only receive two thirds maximum experience (300 XP less) and no credits.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't make me intervene in this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: We never asked for you help, Jedi! Do not press in matters that do not concern you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: This in an internal affair for my family and is none of your concern!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: You should not interfere with our private business, Jedi. This will be resolved very shortly.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do not do anything outside the law. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Your children should be allowed to live their own lives.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You two should stay together no matter what. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't give up on her, Shen.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: Don't disobey me, Shen. Come to me now and leave her! If you don't I'll disown you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I don't care! Rahasia and I will live on our own if you won't accept us!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: You will do no such thing! I am your father and I order you to come back with me!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: No, father, I won't!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Nurik Sandral: Rahasia! You will not leave with this... this Matale boy!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Shen and Rahasia met outside the Sandral estate, but were ambushed by Ahlan Matale. Shortly thereafter, Nurik Sandral showed up as well. Unable to reconcile them with their families, Shen and Rahasia fled to the Jedi Enclave where they can live their lives away from their families' poisonous influence.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 600 Shen and Rahasia fled to Jedi Enclave

If you return to the Matale Estate or the Jedi Enclave:

The second option is for Shen and Rahasia to separate, for which you only receive half maximum experience (450 XP) but maximum credits:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I suppose I should have seen it from the beginning... that our hopeless romance would be doomed to failure.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I... I see. I wonder how I could ever have thought differently about you, Rahasia. How I could have been so blind.

In either case:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Shen and Rahasia met outside the Sandral estate, but were ambushed by Ahlan Matale. Shortly thereafter, Nurik Sandral showed up as well. It seems that their match was not all they had thought it to be, and Shen and Rahasia were separated in the end. Shen went home with his father after he realized that he had been foolish to love Rahasia. It does not seem like he will ever return to her, and both fathers are pleased.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 1000 KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 450 Shen and Rahasia separated

If you return to the Matale Estate, or the Jedi Council Chambers in the enclave:

You can also move closer to the dark side of the force while separating Shen and Rahasia if this is your first response:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
3. Why don't you just shoot each other and get it over with.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
3. The only way either of you will end this is with blood.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I have my own life, father, and I want to spend it with Rahasia!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: You're too immature to do anything on your own.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I can do whatever I want! You can't control me!

If your third response isn't to lie to Nurik, you can move still closer to the dark side while receiving maximum credits by lying to Shen (regardless of success or failure):

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your father is right, Shen. Leave Rahasia. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You could never make Rahasia happy anyway. Medium 3. [Lie] Rahasia doesn't love you anyway. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. [Lie] Rahasia doesn't love you anyway.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I... I could try couldn't I? I would... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: [Success] What? No! Rahasia, how...how could you? How could you lead me to believe... ? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: [Failure] No, I don't believe you! Rahasia and I love each other!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: You know nothing of what it would be like with that... that Sandral! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rahasia Sandral: No, Shen, I...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: Come away from that Sandral harlot, Shen. Come back with me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: I... I...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You can see Rahasia isn't right for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Rahasia would only betray you in the end. Medium 3. [Persuade] You want to trust yourself to a woman who would betray her own father?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: [Success] No, I... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shen Matale: [Failure] No, I don't believe you! Rahasia and I love each other!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ahlan Matale: Look at her! See what kind of person she really is!

Failure either time you try to persuade him gives you a second opportunity to lie to him and move even closer to the dark side:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It will never work, Shen. Why lose your family as well? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Let her go, Shen. It's the easiest way to mend things. Medium 3. [Lie] You know she was just using you. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. [Lie] You know she was just using you.

Otherwise, you can move much closer to the dark side, receiving two thirds maximum experience (300 XP less) but no credits, by lying to Nurik to provoke a bloodbath with your third response:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
1. [Lie] You know, Nurik, Ahlan actually did kill Casus.

Now that Nurik Sandral has killed Shen Matale, a bloodbath is inevitable:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Stop this madness now! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Don't do it, Ahlan! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Run, Rahasia, run! KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
4. Don't let him get away with that!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
5. Kill them! Kill them all!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sandral-Matale Feud
Shen and Rahasia met outside the Sandral estate, but were ambushed by Ahlan Matale. Shortly thereafter, Nurik Sandral showed up as well. In time, the history books may print your part in what followed, but as far as the Council is concerned, both families were uncontrollable and the bloodbath that followed was entirely unavoidable. Tragic, really…
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 600 Provoked bloodbath killing both families

HK-47 would be proud (and no doubt disappointed to miss it, so maybe you should wait before speaking to Shen again and return after the droid has joined your party on Tatooine...).

With Canderous in your party, you won't have to lie to the Jedi Council: perhaps it really was Mandalorian raiders...

With both families killed, their war droids now attack you with Blaster Carbines or a Blaster Rifle:

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

If you return to the Jedi enclave and speak to Belaya in its inner courtyard, or Crattis Yurkal in the Aratech Mercantile store:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Belaya: A battle took place earlier to the south of the Enclave. A lot of people died and many droids were destroyed. I wonder what dark force could have caused this to happen...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Crattis Yurkal: There was some fighting down by the Sandral estate, I heard. I hope it's not the Mandalorian raiders acting up again... Or maybe even some forces sponsored by Czerka Corp.! But maybe I'm just being a bit paranoid... You didn't come here to listen to my ramblings on the evils of the Czerka Corp., I'll bet! What can I do for you?

If you return to the Jedi Council chambers, you can move even closer to the dark side by lying to them all:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vandar Tokare: There has been a report of a terrible battle near the Sandral estate to the south of the Enclave. Apparently a large force of droids attacked the estate. The defending droids returned in kind. The attacking family was apparently the Matale family launching an attack on the Sandral estate. Both entire families were slain, including the boy Shen who had been reported missing. There was a mention that someone noticed one or more other persons leaving the battle area after the conflict had finished. You were in that area, were you not? Did you see something?
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
1. [Lie] No, I was somewhere else.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. [Lie] That's horrible! I didn't know!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: There was a battle near one of the southern estate recently. Many people were killed. Do you know anything about it?

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Vrook Lamar: [Success] Hmph. Indeed. I cannot prove anything, but I have my suspicions. I will keep my eye on you, Padawan.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: I have heard there was some sort of large battle to the south of here between two families of settlers. Apparently both the families were completely killed in the fight, along with their respective droids. I find that most suspicious. Were you not in that area recently?

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Zhar Lestin: [Success] Hm, is that so... It is tragic that this had to happen to those families. Their children were in love, I hear. Perhaps it was Mandalorian raiders, or a feud that got out of control. It is tragic, but nothing can be done now that all who were involved are dead. Let this be a lesson against hate and violence: a Jedi must always be wary lest these lead to the dark side.
