Map of the Sith academy

Way of the Sith[edit]

Once you're ready, Yuthura Ban takes you to meet the academy's Master, Uthar Wynn. He addresses you and other prospective students in the hub of the academy:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Way of the Sith
You have managed to enter the Sith academy as a hopeful vying with several others to become the one who will be finally admitted as a full Sith. In order to do so, you must prove your worth to Master Uthar Wynn by gaining prestige. More information can be gained by speaking to your instructor, Yuthura.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Uthar Wynn
  • Sith Passcard

This is a small identification card marking you as a student within the Sith monastery on Korriban. It will allow you to come and go as you wish.

You're taken to your Bedroom to the northwest of the academy's hub, where Uthar remains, kneeling to meditate. Once you've spoken to your instructor Yuthura Ban, you're free to return and ask how you gain prestige:

Although he doesn't go into specifics, you can ask around or simply explore the academy and the valley and its tombs beyond to the north to activate and complete quests, before returning to report to him and gain prestige and experience:

Quest Location Action XP Prestige
Double-Double-Cross Sith Academy Informed on Yuthura Ban 610 +1
Doubting Sith Sith Academy Informed on Kel Algwinn Dark Side Points Gained 210 +1
Code of the Sith Sith Academy Demonstrated full knowledge of the Code 125 +1
Renegade Sith Shyrack Caves Dealth with renegade Sith students 110 +1
Sword of Ajunta Pall Tomb of Ajunta Pall Turned over sword of Ajunta Pall 110 +1
Rogue Droid Tomb of Marka Ragnos Dealt with rogue assassin droid 110 +1
Hermit in the Hills Tomb of Tulak Hord Turned over ancient Sith tablet 110 +1
Mandalorian Weapons Cache Sith Academy Turned over location of weapons cache 110 +1
Aiding Lashowe Valley of Dark Lords Turned over holocron and denied killing Lashowe 110 +1
Turned over holocron and admitted killing Lashowe 210 +2
Killed Lashowe for her betrayal Dark Side Points Gained 110 +1

Experience listed is only that received upon reporting back, not the total received for completing the quest (as this varies depending on how it's completed).

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Go, now... you have done well, but you have not impressed me enough to declare you the victor. I have matters to attend to.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Way of the Sith
You have managed to gain some prestige, impressing Master Uthar, but it is not yet enough for him to declare you the victor in your contest with the others. Speak to Yuthura or continue to look around the academy and the Valley of the Dark Lords to find ways to curry favor with Master Uthar.

Five prestige points need to be gained to be declared the victor, worthy of taking the final test: once this has occurred, you cannot report back for more prestige (and experience). Only four or five of these nine quests need to be completed, so there's no need for a light side character to move closer to the dark side of the Force.

However, some of these quests cannot be completed once you've proven yourself worthy: Yuthura Ban can no longer be poisoned and neither can Master Uthar unless you've already received the device from Yuthura, and she can no longer instruct you in the Code of the Sith; Lashowe can no longer be convinced to meet in the valley; and once you've been take to the tomb of Naga Sadow, you may no longer be able to speak to the doubting Sith Kel Algwinn or interrogate the Mandalorian prisoner about the weapons cache, and the tombs of Ajunta Pall and Tulak Hord will be locked if you haven't already found the sword of Ajunta Pall and the hermit in the hills respectively.

Once you've gained the necessary prestige:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Way of the Sith
Master Uthar has been impressed enough to declare you worthy of taking the final test at the tomb of Naga Sadow. He has given you one night to rest up and prepare. When you are ready, return to him and he will bring you to the tomb.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 210 Declared worthy of taking the final test at the tomb of Naga Sadow

You're returned to your Bedroom once again, and some of the Sith may comment on your victory:

When you're ready, return to speak to Master Uthar:

You're taken to the tomb of Naga Sadow by yourself, so before you tell him you're ready to go you may want to take any party members north to the door to the Valley and leave them there by entering Solo mode before returning, so they can better support you in case you have to fight your way back through the academy upon your return (otherwise they remain in the hub of the academy).

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I am ready to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Then we go now.

Bedroom[edit]

Your bedroom is at the end of a corridor to the northwest of the academy's hub. There's a footlocker by your bed, in the northwest corner:

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

Star Map: Korriban[edit]

The corridor exits your bedroom to the southeast. As you travel south you'll pass your instructor Yuthura Ban standing at the foot of her own bed on the right, to the west. She speaks to you:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Korriban
The Star Map on Korriban lies in the tomb of Naga Sadow within the Valley of the Dark Lords. The tomb, however, can only be entered by Master Uthar of the academy. He will take you there for your final test once you succeed in gaining enough prestige... doing so may be your only chance at reaching the Star Map.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Learned Star Map lies in tomb of Naga Sadow within Valley of Dark Lords

Double-Cross[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Cross
Yuthura Ban has chosen you to be part of her plot to overthrow Master Uthar and take over the academy... and she didn't give you much choice in the matter. Yuthura will help you gain enough prestige to be worthy of the final test at the tomb of Naga Sadow, and there she expects you to help her kill Master Uthar.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Chosen by Yuthura Ban to be part of her plot to overthrow Master Uthar

If you ask her how you get more prestige she can give you a lead, after telling you that the first and easiest way would be for you to learn the Code of the Sith:

If you want to know more about these ruins on the surface, she confirms you can only gain entrance to the tomb of Naga Sadow in the company of Master Uthar, so even as a light side character you must prove your worth to him by gaining prestige to be admitted as a full Sith:

If you ask her to tell you about herself she'll mention she was from Sleheyron, and if you return it's easy to persuade her you'd like to know more about her:

Once she's told you more you can return to ask how she became a Sith, although she still needs to be persuaded to let you hear the tale:

It's easier for a male character to persuade her:

Easy 1. [Persuade] I just thought we could become friends... or maybe something more. Medium 1. [Persuade] I just thought we could become friends, is all. Never 2. [Persuade] Is there any harm in telling me?

Once she's told her tale, she considers you her friend:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Greetings, my friend. *chuckle* I do rather enjoy saying that.

Befriending her gives you the opportunity to persuade her to leave the academy later... or move even closer to the dark side of the Force if you turn on her first...

Double-Double-Cross[edit]

A Sith guard patrols the corridors to the west of the academy's hub:

Greetings, Student.

Two Sith students wander the main corridor between the east and west ends of the academy, and their comments may shed some light on how you might gain prestige; Hijata and two other Sith students standing on the southeast side of the academy's hub do likewise. Uthar Wynn kneels in the center, meditating:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Double-Cross
Master Uthar has co-opted you into his own plan to turn the tables around on Yuthura. He has given you a datapad with instructions to have Yuthura poisoned in time for the final test. You must locate Adrenas in the exit to the Valley of the Dark Lords and give the datapad to him.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 610 Co-opted into plan to turn tables on Yuthura
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Uthar Wynn
  • Sith Datapad

This datapad contains coded instructions from Master Uthar to someone by the name of Adrenas. You are not sure what the instructions detail, save that he requires the chamberlain to go to Dreshdae to gather the ingredients.

If you don't tell him about Yuthura's plot to overthrow him, then he'll turn on you even if you side with him against her. However, doing so doesn't prevent you from siding with Yuthura, and surprisingly neither does poisoning her. If you speak to him again before gaining enough prestige to be declared worthy of taking the final test:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Do not forget our agreement regarding Yuthura's treachery. We shall put her in her place... should you reach the final test, that is.

Adrenas can be found standing with Tariga and a female Sith teacher in the northeast corner of the north hall exiting to the Valley, and once you've asked who he is you can tell him Master Uthar gave you this datapad for him:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: He did? Allow me to see that for a moment... Ah, yes, I see. I will do as Master Uthar requests, of course. Thank you for bringing this to me.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Double-Cross
Master Uthar's datapad has been turned over to Adrenas. This means that when (and if) you go to the final test at the tomb of Naga Sadow, Yuthura will be poisoned and weak enough to be easily defeated.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Turned over Master Uthar's datapad to Adrenas
KotOR Icon Item(s) Lost.png Item(s) Lost: Adrenas
  • Sith Datapad

At this point, you can still side with either of them (or neither). However, if you tell Yuthura about Uthar's plan then once again he'll turn on you even if you side with him against her:

You need to be moderately persuasive to successfully lie about saying something to him, although the outcome is the same as telling the truth or failing:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes, I did. Medium 2. [Persuade/Lie] No, of course not.

If you still have Master Uthar's Sith datapad, you can tell her that he wants her poisoned:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He wants you poisoned. I'm supposed to give this pad to Andrenas.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Let me see that. Hmm... so it's true. Thank you for bringing this to me... now I will be far stronger than Uthar expects.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Double-Cross
You have turned over Master Uthar's datapad to Yuthura, effectively eliminating any possibility of her being poisoned. It would probably not be a good idea to reveal this particular detail to Master Uthar.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Lost.png Item(s) Lost: Yuthura Ban
  • Sith Datapad

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Cross
Yuthura has given you a small device which she says will secretly poison Master Uthar. It must be placed within his bed inside his chambers, for which she has given you a passcard to enter. Regardless of whether or not you do as she wishes, Master Uthar should not be told about your relaying of his plan... no doubt he would not look upon you kindly.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Yuthura Ban
  • Passcard
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Yuthura Ban
  • Sith Device
These passcards act as keys to the academy bedrooms... this one specifically meant for the bedroom of Master Uthar. This small electronic device appears to be completely self-operating. Once attached to a specific surface, it will begin deploying whatever trap is inside. Yuthura has not explained exactly what the device does... simply that it must be placed inside Master Uthar's bed in order to function.

In for a penny, in for a pound: if you've told her about Uthar's plan, then you might as well poison him as well. Uthar Wynn's room is at the west end of the main corridor running the length of the academy. The door is in the south wall:

Security Uthar Wynn's Room Unlock 34 (14) Bash Resist - Vitality -

Yuthura's passcard opens the door so that using Security isn’t necessary to unlock it. His bed is at the west end of the room:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bed: [The device could easily be placed underneath the bed... it apparently will stick to the metal and be well out of sight.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Place the device.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Leave it alone.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bed: [With a whir, the device crawls away upon being placed. It is done.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Double-Cross
You have placed Yuthura's device in Master Uthar's bed, meaning he should be poisoned in time for the final test at the tomb of Naga Sadow. This should make him much easier to defeat there. Hopefully Master Uthar does not find out about your involvement in the scheme before that time comes.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Placed Yuthura's device in Master Uthar's bed
KotOR Icon Item(s) Lost.png Item(s) Lost: Bed
  • Sith Device

There's a locked footlocker by the bed, in the northwest corner:

Security Footlocker Unlock 18 (0) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 15
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker

Doubting Sith[edit]

To the south of your Bedroom and across the main corridor connecting the east and west ends of the academy, Kel Algwinn kneels to meditate at the foot of his bed to the left, on the east side. The corridor to the south turns east into an empty bedroom, where there's a locked footlocker by the bed, in the northeast corner:

Security Footlocker Unlock 28 (8) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 15
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker

If you speak to Kel Algwinn:

After asking if he knows anything about the Code of the Sith, you can provoke him to attack you:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I doubt that.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Kel Algwinn: I am a Sith, better trained than you! I'll show you!!

However, if your alignment is dark (< 40), you have other opportunities to provoke an attack after asking if something's wrong:

You can provoke him before persuading him, but experience is received if you're successful (although it's harder if your alignment is dark):

Easy 1. [Persuade] Sure you can. Medium 1. [Persuade] Sure you can. Low (Affect Mind) 2. [Force Persuade] You want to trust me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: [Success] I just... don't feel I belong here. I thought maybe I did at first, but now... I don't know. I just have so many doubts.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 125 Persuaded Kel Algwinn to trust you
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're no Sith. I've never seen anyone so pathetic!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Kel Algwinn: I... I am too a Sith! I'm more a Sith than you are! I'll show you!!

He receives bonuses depending on your character level:

This may move you closest to the dark side of the Force with alignment > 60 and result in most experience received at level < 13, but otherwise you move closest to the dark side, receive more experience and gain prestige if you don't provoke him and tell Master Uthar of his doubts instead:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith
You have encountered a student by the name of Kel Algwinn, an unusual student at the Sith academy who confessed to you that he has strong feelings of doubt that this is the appropriate place for him to be. Such knowledge would be dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Please don't tell anyone what I told you. They would tell me to leave... or worse.

If you ask Yuthura if she knows a student named Kel, she advises you to betray him if you know something:

If you need to give Lashowe a lead before she'll agree to work together, you can now tell her she could go and talk to Kel Algwinn:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: He's... one of the students? Yes, I've met the sniveler. I think I know where you're going with this... good, yes, I accept.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith
You told Lashowe of Kel Algwinn's doubts about remaining in the Sith academy. There is little reason to believe that she would hesitate to turn such information over to Master Uthar. You will probably not be seeing Kel Algwinn again.

However, this isn't the only lead you can give her and it prevents you from gaining prestige by telling Master Uthar:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -5
1. It's Kel Algwinn. He has... doubts... and is thinking of leaving.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Ahhhh. I think I know this one you speak of. You gained his confidence to admit such, did you? I commend your competitive spirit... you have certainly impressed me. I shall speak to the boy straight away.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith
Master Uthar has been informed of Kel Algwinn's doubts. He was highly impressed by your ruthlessness, and noted that Kel would be "spoken to" shortly.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 210 Informed Master Uthar of Kel Algwinn's doubts

If you speak to Yuthura afterwards:

Alternatively, you can forego the opportunity to gain prestige and get him to leave the academy:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +3
Kel Algwinn: I... don't know. I never really thought about it. Maybe I should seek it out, give it a try. Thank you... thank you so much!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Uh, eh, maybe you're right. *sigh* I'll go and... tell Master Uthar that I'm not ready for this. Maybe it won't be so bad. Th-thank you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith
You encountered a Sith by the name of Kel Algwinn who really didn't belong in the academy... in fact, you advised him to think about joining the Jedi, instead. Kel took your advice to heart and decided to leave the Sith and think about it. Who knows? Perhaps someday you might find him amongst the ranks of the Order?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith
You encountered a Sith by the name of Kel Algwinn who really didn't belong in the academy... and you told him as much. While the Sith might disagree with your advice, Kel took it to heart and immediately left. Perhaps it is for the best.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 225 Advised Kel Algwinn to think about joining the Jedi
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 175 Told Kel Algwinn he really didn't belong in the academy

After advising him to think about joining the Jedi, he does exactly that and he may now be found in the training room of the Jedi Council Chambers on Dantooine:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Thank you again. I hope your mission for the Council goes well.

Code of the Sith[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Code of the Sith
Yuthura has instructed you on the Code of the Sith. Master Uthar already stated the the first hopeful to come to him with full knowledge of the Code could gain prestige. If you take it to him, make sure you remember it well.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 125 Instructed on the Code of the Sith

Experience is received each time you ask about the Code of the Sith, which can be exploited to level up (although this is neither necessary nor recommended). You can ask her to explain each line, which will help answer Master Uthar's question after reciting the Code:

You can now return to the hub of the academy to the east to demonstrate your knowledge to Master Uthar:

After reciting the Code, you must answer one of three randomly selected questions, true or false:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Code of the Sith
You were successful in demonstrating to Master Uthar your knowledge of the Code of the Sith. He was impressed, and you have gained prestige, though you will no doubt have to do much more than this to prove your final worth.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 125 Demonstrated knowledge of the Code of the Sith

Renegade Sith[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes, go on.

The male Sith teacher standing with the Sith student on the northeast side of the academy's hub, or in the northwest corner of the hall to the Valley, can also tell you about the renegade Sith students:

However, slicing the console in the dueling room at the east end of the academy and hacking into its datafiles is the most informative:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Renegade Sith
You have been told about some renegade Sith students who disobeyed a direct order given by Master Uthar to execute civilians. It is known that they have not left Korriban and are probably in hiding. Anyone who could eliminate them would likely gain favor with Master Uthar for the deed.

The Renegade Sith can be found in the southernmost tunnel of the Shyrack caves, the entrance to which is in the west wall of the Valley of Dark Lords upon exiting the academy to the north (there's a flock of shyrack outside, so it's hard to miss).

Sword of Ajunta Pall[edit]

If you speak to the Sith student standing with the Sith teacher on the northeast side of the academy's hub:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Sword of Ajunta Pall
You have heard mention of a powerful sword that might be found within the tomb of an ancient Sith Lord, Ajunta Pall.

Unsurprisingly, the sword of Ajunta Pall can be found in the Tomb of Ajunta Pall, in the southeast corner of the Valley of Dark Lords. Although you'll encounter Shaardan again as you exit the tomb, there's no reason to seek him out beforehand (he can be found to the east of your Bedroom to the north of Lashowe, kneeling to meditate at the foot of his bed on the west side, and his reaction to you will depend on how your first encounter ended back in Dreshdae):

Rogue Droid[edit]

Although this quest cannot be activated by speaking to anyone in the academy, some of the Sith students may comment on it:

If you speak to Dak Vesser, or the Sith student standing outside the Tomb of Marka Ragnos in the southwest corner of the Valley of Dark Lords, then you'll know there's a rogue droid within before you enter.

Valley[edit]

Door to valley is in the north wall of the room to the north of the academy's hub. A Sith guard stands on the right, on the east side, while another patrols the corridor between this room and the hub. There's a plasteel cylinder by the south wall in the southwest corner, and a locked footlocker by the north wall in the northeast corner:

Security Footlocker Unlock 18 (8) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 15
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Plasteel Cylinder KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker

Adrenas also stands in the northeast corner, with a female Sith teacher and Tariga:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Master Uthar gave me this datapad for you.

The female Sith teacher can help, albeit grudgingly, by informing you of Jorak Uln:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Yes. Can you help me? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know how I can get some prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Hmph. As if I didn't have better things to do. Has anyone told you about Jorak Uln?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No. Who's Jorak Uln?

When you first speak to Tariga, he can be asked about the valley and the ruins and tombs there, as well as the shyrack and tuk'ata you'll encounter:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: I wish you well in your explorations.

There's another female Sith teacher in the southwest corner, watching as a male and female Sith student spar with lightsabers. Another male Sith teacher stands instructing two male Sith students kneeling in the northwest corner.

Hermit in the Hills[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Hermit in the Hills
You have been told about the "mad hermit" in the hills surrounding the Valley of the Dark Lords. Apparently this hermit is the former master of the academy, Jorak Uln, who was forced into his exile by Master Uthar. The man is mad and a menace to the academy, and dealing with him might be worthy of prestige.

When you enter the valley the student Dak Vesser to the northwest of the entrance can also inform you of the hermit in the hills before you encounter him in the Tomb of Tulak Hord. Although you'll also encounter the student Mekel with Jorak, he doesn't really have anything to say if you speak beforehand (he can be found down the corridor on the south side of the main corridor opposite Lashowe, standing at a computer panel to the left, on the east side):

Otherwise, once you've asked what makes him so sure he'll be the one who makes it, you can try to persuade him to tell you why (although the fact that prestige can be gained with Sith artifacts brought back from the valley can be learned elsewhere):

Hard 2. [Persuade] You can at least give me a hint.

Interrogation Room[edit]

The interrogation room is beyond the door in the north wall at the east end of the academy's main corridor. As you enter, the Sith interrogator standing at the computer panel by the north wall speaks to you, presenting you with an opportunity to gain prestige:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You want me to try it?

The Sith victim stands in a cage to the west:

[The Mandalorian is imprisoned and cannot respond.]

There's a locked metal box in the southwest corner:

Security Metal Box Unlock 28 (8) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 15
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Metal Box

All that remains is to question the Mandalorian prisoner...

Mandalorian Weapons Cache[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
A Sith "information extractor" has been having difficulty getting the location of a secret weapons cache out of a Mandalorian prisoner. He has invited you to try: all you need to do is use the console to inject truth serum. The right amount will make him confess. Too much, however, and the prisoner will go into shock.

The Sith interrogator steps back to the entrance, allowing you to use the computer panel to interrogate the prisoner:

Medium 1. [Persuade] Trust me... I'll help you if I can!

Since you move closer to the dark side of the Force if you inject truth serum, a light side character should start by asking if there's any way you could free him, then convince him to trust you so that he tells you how before using the serum console:

Computer Use 6. [Computer Skill] [Apply a serum to induce catatonic state.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Failure] ...n-no, that is... n-not...

However, your chance of success is dependent on the ratio between your main character's total Computer Use rank and level: ratio = rank / (level + 5).

Ratio Success Minimum Computer Use rank at character level
3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
> 0.25 25% 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 7 7
> 0.50 50% 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9 9 10 10 11 11 12 12 13 13
> 0.75 100% 7 7 8 9 10 10 11 12 13 13 14 15 16 16 17 18 19 19

Failure results in the injection of a single dose of truth serum, and ten such injections will result in the prisoner going into shock:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
Sith Victim: I... I h-have... w-won...
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
You attempted to extract the location of a weapons cache from a Mandalorian prisoner within the academy, but ended up injecting too much truth serum too fast. This resulted in the prisoner going into shock, which makes him quite useless.

However, even 25% chance of success should be sufficient, since the chance of at least one success from nine attempts is 100 * (1 – (0.759) ) or ~92.5%: even a character with no points spent in Computer Use and 8 Intelligence should be able to achieve this with bonuses from items and a Force Valor power. Even in the unlikely event that all nine attempts are failures, moderate dosages of anti-serum can be applied to allow more attempts to be made until one is successful:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +4
Sith Victim: [Success] Th-thank... y-you...
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
You managed to save a Mandalorian prisoner by rendering him catatonic... his body will be presumed dead and will be dumped, allowing him to escape upon his recovery. He gratefully told you the location of his cache. It is unreachable by you, but its location could be given to Master Uthar in exchange for prestige.

In either case the Sith interrogator leaves after berating you:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: What?! What have you done?! I told you not to put the prisoner into shock, didn't I?! Now how are we supposed to find out where the weapon cache is?! Uthar will be furious!! Bah! Now I may as well take this fool and dump him somewhere. He's useless to us! I cannot believe you are so incompetent!

Otherwise, you must inject truth serum and move closer to the dark side of the Force the first time you do so:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
1. [Inject truth serum: high dosage.]
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
2. [Inject truth serum: moderate dosage.]

The doses in each dosage are as follows:

His response after each injection gives some indication of how many doses he's had in total, as does his response to questioning:

If you can dominate minds then he'll tell you the location after five doses (one high dosage); otherwise, he'll only do so after exactly nine (three moderate dosages is simplest).

Sith Victim: [Success] I... I will... it is in... it is in my ship. The cache... it is in a trap door... hidden on my ship...

The Sith interrogator overhears and wants to take credit for it:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine, I don't care. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, forget it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Good. That's the way I prefer it. Now... to get rid of the prisoner and get to that cache...
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
You managed to extract the location of a weapons cache from a Mandalorian prisoner, but the Sith who allowed you to perform the procedure has run off to take the credit for the extraction, himself. Perhaps if you make it to Master Uthar first you can gain the prestige, instead.

If you let him get away with this, then when you return to Master Uthar:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 11. I know the location of the Mandalorian prisoner's weapon cache.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Oh? And why would that be of use to me? His interrogator already brought me that information moments ago. A valiant attempt, young one, but you must be quicker than that if you wish to impress me.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's right! Let's go!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Ha! Gather your anger, then... and let us see who is superior!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
You managed to extract the location of a weapons cache from a Mandalorian prisoner... and had to fight the Sith who was present to prevent him from taking credit for himself. Telling Master Uthar of the cache's location is certain to impress him.

The location of the Mandalorian prisoner's weapons cache has been turned over to Master Uthar. He says that the cache is no longer of particular interest, but was impressed at your ability to gain the information regardless. You are one step closer towards taking you final test.

Aiding Lashowe[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
Yuthura has told you that of your rivals Lashowe might be a good one to approach... she might very well be easily tricked into allowing you to "help" her. Yuthura says that you must be ruthless if you were to take advantage of such a situation, and only that would impress Master Uthar.

Lashowe can be found in the north corridor to the east of your Bedroom, standing at a computer panel at the entrance to her own bedroom on the west side. How she responds depends on whether or not you persuaded her to like you upon your first meeting back in Dreshdae:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Perhaps we could work together? Easy 1. [Persuade/Lie] Maybe I could help you get it? Easy 2. [Persuade] I'd like to help you retrieve your artifact.

If you can dominate minds or your character is male then she can be persuaded to let you work with her without any further conditions:

High (Dominate Mind) 1. [Force Persuade] Because you want to work with me. Easy 3. [Persuade] I've always wanted to work with a beautiful woman.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Success] Yes, I do... want to work with you. I suppose it's possible that Master Uthar could award both of us prestige. We'd be ahead of the others, for sure... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Success] Flattery, is it? I... suppose it's possible that Master Uthar could award both of us prestige. We'd be ahead of the others, for sure...

Otherwise it's more difficult to persuade her, particularly if she dislikes you, and even if you succeed then she wants you to give her a lead for how she could gain more prestige:

Hard 2. [Persuade] Because together we will be unbeatable. Medium 2. [Persuade] Because together we will be unbeatable.

If you don't know any leads then you can try to lie about one, but it's simple enough to ask around the academy until you have one:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Hmm. You could go and talk to Kel Algwinn.
Medium 1. [Lie] There is a powerful Sith cloak in the furthest tomb in the valley. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. There are some renegades hiding on the surface which Master Uthar wants killed. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I've heard there's an artifact sword in the tomb of Freedon Nadd.

In any case, once you've convinced her to allow you to help:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
You have convinced Lashowe into allowing you to help her recover a relic she is aware of in the Valley of the Dark Lords: an ancient but corrupt Jedi holocron that would surely be worthy of prestige by Master Uthar. She has gone out into the valley to wait for you amongst the pillars in the center of the valley.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 125 Convinced Lashowe to help her recover relic from Valley of Dark Lords

Lashowe can now be found at the north end of the valley outside, to the east opposite the door to Tulak Hord's tomb.

Dueling Room[edit]

The dueling room is beyond the door in the south wall at the east end of the academy's main corridor. As you enter for the first time, you witness combat between a Sith duelist and a captive Republic soldier to the left, on the east side of the room. Once the duelist kills the captive, he moves over to the computer panel in the center of the room, opposite the door. There's a locked metal box in the southeast corner:

Security Metal Box Unlock 28 (8) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 15
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Metal Box

You can speak to the Sith duelist, although there isn't much point in doing so until you make a peaceful return from the Tomb of Naga Sadow:

The computer panel can be used to start your own combat with a prisoner:

Surprisingly, this doesn't necessarily move you closer to the dark side of the Force as the prisoners attack even after telling them to run, or that you're not a Sith:

3. This should be fun!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Captive Republic Soldier: You... you're going to make me fight, aren't you? Then... then fight I will!! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Captive Republic Soldier: Come and get me, if that's what you want!!
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

You can start combat with up to three prisoners, at which point the Sith duelist will have left. If you then try to start a fourth combat:

You can also slice the console, although the only action that might be useful is hacking into the academy's datafiles:

To the right on the west side of the room, a Sith student shocks four captives held in cages around the south and west walls:

Finding Dustil[edit]

Once you've encountered the messenger Jordo after speaking to Carth, his son Dustil Onasi appears in the dormitory wing of the academy to the west of its hub, beyond Mekel at the south end of the corridor to the east of your Bedroom:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: You take a wrong turn somewhere?

If you speak to him without Carth in your party:

Otherwise:

Any of the following responses result in him attacking you:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Looks like your boy is all grown up, Carth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You don't want to do that, Dustil. Trust me. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Let's go, Carth. This is no use. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. This is pointless, Carth. He'll never believe us.

He receives bonuses depending on your character level:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Finding Dustil
Carth's son was found. Dustil was an angry young man... a Sith in training who blamed Carth for abandoning him and his mother to their fate. Carth tried to argue his case, but Dustil simply grew angrier and eventually attacked. Carth blames you now for Dustil's death, saying that you could have done something to help.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received: KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Dustil Onasi

While you move no closer to the dark side of the Force for killing Dustil (since he attacked you), any romance between a female character and Carth dies with him. Otherwise, after telling Dustil to calm down:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Finding Dustil
Carth's son has been found, but the reunion was not exactly what he'd hoped. Dustil does not believe anything Carth has to say on the true nature of his new "family". Carth is desperate to find some kind of proof in the academy that the Sith are evil and bring it to Dustil to open his eyes.

Slicing the console in the dueling room at the east end of the academy and hacking into its datafiles will give a clue where to find the necessary proof:

However, you can simply go to Uthar Wynn's room at the west end of the academy, where a second footlocker can now be found to the right of the table in the southeast corner:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: That datapad... take a look at it. I wonder if Dustil knows his friend was disposed of like that? If not, it might convince Dustil that what we're saying about the Sith is true. It would be worth a shot.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +6
Carth: Goodbye, son. Good luck.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Finding Dustil
Dustil's eyes have been opened to the true nature of the Sith. He has determined that he will stay on Korriban and try to both save some of his friends as well as unearth more information. While it's obvious that not everything is patched up between the two of them, they did agree to meet again after events calm and try to make up for some lost time.

Dreshdae[edit]

The door to Dreshdae is in the south wall of the academy's hub, with a Sith guard standing on the right, to the west.
