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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Greetings, prospective students. It appears we have a late entry. Who do you bring before me, Yuthura? A young human, bristling with the Force?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: A human that has had some training, it seems, Master Uthar. Very promising, I think.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: Promising? Hmmph. That one's not worthy to lick spit off your shoes, master.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I met this one in the colony... unworthy, if you ask me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: That I'll judge for myself, thank you. Tell me, human... what do you know of the ways of the Sith? What preconceptions has your mind been polluted with?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I've killed too many Sith to have preconceptions about them. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't know anything about the Sith, to tell the truth. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I know that the Sith are powerful. A force to be reckoned with. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. The Sith are evil and have surrendered themselves to the temptation and corruption of their power. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. The Sith do what they want and pay no heed to duty or discipline.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Most impressive, if it is true. Those who were too weak to stand against you deserved their fate, so expect no retribution from us. There is much you can learn from the Sith, and we from you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: An honest if evasive answer. Likely it is more true than you realize. Allow me to speak of the deeper matters at hand. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: A diplomatic answer, if not the core of the matter. Our power is obvious. The question in truth goes much deeper than the surface. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: An honest answer, and one I would expect from anyone who has been exposed to those sad relics amongst the Jedi. As always, young human, the truth is not quite so simple. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Untrue. The Force demands discipline from all who use it, and the Sith demand duty. The truth goes far beyond such a superficial evaluation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: The Jedi equate the light with goodness and strength and the dark with weakness and evil. That is their tradition and it is truly no surprise that they cling to it for comfort. We, however, do not treat the Force as a burden. We treat it as a gift, a thing to be celebrated. We use it to acquire power over others... and why should we not? Because the Jedi say we should not? We are as the Force is meant to be. The Jedi would hide that from you... they would tell you the dark side is too quick, too easy, all so that they need never challenge the passions that lie within them. Joining with us means realizing your true potential. It means not stifling yourself solely for the sake of hide-bound shamans and their antiquated notion of order. Be what you were meant to be.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: What say you, Lashowe? Are you ready to learn the secrets of the dark side? Dare you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I dare, Master Uthar! I am ready!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Brash and fiery, as expected. Turn that passion to your advantage, child. What of you, Mekel? Are you ready?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: I am, Master. More than ready.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I sense much anger within you, young one. That is good. That will provide you power. And Shaardan... what of you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: I am always ready!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I see. You had best gather your wits for the trial ahead, boy, or you will not last. And you, young human? Does this interest you? Are you ready to learn more of what I speak?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And what of my companions?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Your slaves? They are irrelevant. They may accompany you, so long as they do not interfere with us or with your training. Are you ready or not, young one?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I am ready to learn more. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't know... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. But... power without consideration of morality is a weakness.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Are you? I can see into your heart, young human, and I see the dark kernel that is there. If it is ready to sprout remains to be seen. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: And so shall it be. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: An honest answer. You will make little progress, however, if you do not come to learn that any opportunity, even an unsure one, must be snatched. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Ha ha ha! You are brave to argue, young one. I have met few students who would speak so openly to me. Ask yourself first what this 'morality' is? How is it created? Who does it benefit? Where do your notions of 'good' and 'evil' come from? You may come to the realization that morality is but an obstacle to overcome... or not. The discovery is yours to make, should you be ready.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Now, then. All of you five recruits have shown a degree of facility with the Force... you all have the potential to become true Sith. Only one of you, however, will succeed. The one who succeeds will be admitted to the academy as a full Sith. All others must wait until next year and try again... if you survive. My pupil, Yuthura, shall be your teacher and master while you attempt to prove yourselves. Heed her words.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: As Master Uthar said, none of you are true Sith *yet*. For that to occur, one of you must do enough of worth... gain enough prestige... to be selected. What is an act of worth? You must learn that for yourselves. Remember that you are competitors, here... fight for your destiny, or go home.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: If you wish to gain a lead over your competitors, the first of you to learn the Code of the Sith and tell me of it will be rewarded. The rest is for you to discover. Welcome to the dark side, my children... your one chance at true greatness lies here.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Greetings, young one. You have much to do, yet... you have gained little prestige. You will have to work quickly if you hope to best the others. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Greetings, young one. I have found you to be most impressive... you are off to an excellent beginning. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Greetings, young one. You have done very well for yourself so far. Continue and your promise shall be fulfilled.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How do I gain prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Oh? It is no more complicated than I said. Perform impressive deeds or bring me a suitably valuable artifact from the Valley of the Dark Lords.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Observation: We could begin by slaughtering the inhabitants of this building, master. Would that be impressive? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: So it's a popularity contest, basically? Wonderful.
KotOR Icon T3-M4.png T3-M4: Beep-beep boop boooop.
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: No, I didn't mean *us* as well, you moronic droid.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: It is like the rites of passage of my home, except the only purpose here is to brag about it. No personal pride at all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Really, however, you should seek out Yuthura and get her advice. She is your trainer, after all, yes?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Where is this valley?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: There is an exit that leads to the surface of the planet... the valley is only a short trip from there. It is not difficult to find.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to know some more about you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You wish to know more about me, do you? And why would I indulge your idle curiosity? Will we be good friends, you think? I strived many years to hone my power until I was able to drive out my predecessor and rule the academy. If you are smart, you will aim to do the same, or better. There is nothing else that you need to know. Do not ask again, young one.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'll be on my way.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Indeed. You have much to do, yet. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Very well. You have impressed me... definitely a good start. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You have gained considerable prestige... you are very close to the end. Do not falter now.

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 Dealt 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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You have impressed me enough, by my estimation, to become a Sith in full. Congratulations, young one... you have bested the others quite completely. You have but one final test which you must take, and this requires us to travel to the tomb of Naga Sadow in the Valley of the Dark Lords. I would advise you to be rested and equipped before we leave. Return to your quarters now and seek me out in the morning. When you return, make sure that you have all that you will need... for you will face your test alone. Go, and may the Force serve you well.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What are you doing here? Go back to Uthar and tell him you're ready to take your final test! Our moment is at hand, go!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You beat me. Go on, gloat, I could care less. I'll succeed next time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: Hmph. I could've won. You were just lucky.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Alright, fine, you won. Big deal. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: I hear you beat out the others to get the prestige you needed. Congratulations. You deserve it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Congratulations on joining the academy proper. I imagine you'll be taking your final test soon?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: I hear that you have gained sufficient prestige to undertake the final test. Well done. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Go on! You've gained your prestige, now, haven't you? Go take your final test already and get out of my hair!

Sith Student:

Hmm. So you got enough prestige to win out, I hear. We'll just see if you make it through your final test.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: So, then. I take it you are ready to travel to the tomb of Naga Sadow? Your final test should not be delayed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What is this tomb of Naga Sadow?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: It is a tomb that belonged to an ancient Sith Lord... the greatest of Korriban's Sith Lords, in fact. It is there that your test is performed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What is this final test?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I will tell you the details when we are there, young one. You will, however, fight for your life... that is why I suggest you be in sufficient health.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'm not ready just yet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Then return when you are. Do not delay overly long, young one.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Ah, there you are... my favorite prospect for the year.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your favorite prospect?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Absolutely. By my estimation, you are far more likely to achieve the prestige necessary to join the Sith than any of the others. As a matter of fact, I am so certain of that that I'm willing to offer you an opportunity of the once-in-a-lifetime variety. Would you like to hear it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Absolutely. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do I have a choice? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. But I don't even have any prestige, yet!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Good. I do so adore someone who's willing to take a chance. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Not really. Oh, don't worry... what I have in mind will benefit us both, you can be sure of that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: 'Yet' being the operative term. As I said, you have my utmost confidence.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: As I said, you're no doubt going to be the one whom Uthar chooses to become a Sith. With my help, of course. Once that occurs, he will take you into the Valley of the Dark Lords to the tomb of Naga Sadow to administer the final test. There you and I will be alone with him. The perfect time to, shall we say, arrange for a change in the academy's leadership?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What's so important about this tomb?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The tomb is an ancient ruin on the surface that was visited years ago by Darth Revan and Darth Malak. They discovered a Star Map there of great importance.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You don't say? Well, the master loves tombs, don't you master? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Darth Malak went there? Very interesting... isn't it, master?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Reaching that map, as they did, is part of the final test. At any rate, it is not the tomb that is important. That Uthar will be alone is what is important.
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]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You want me to kill Master Uthar?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Is that such a daunting prospect? It is not as if I am asking you to perform the task alone, or as if you will get nothing out of it. Master Uthar cannot prevail against us both. That's all there is to it. It is a very simple matter.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What's to stop me from telling him about this?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I suppose you could do that. Even the hint of betrayal from his pupil and Uthar would move to eliminate me. But this is a very good opportunity for you... you can start off your Sith career as the right hand of the head of the academy: me. Uthar will not offer you that. Do you believe Uthar would not be aware of this? He would quickly figure out what you have to gain by betraying him... and would never believe someone would pass that up. Tell Master Uthar what you wish. Were I you, I would think first of what the consequences of such an action might be.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And what's your part in this?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: My 'part' in this is to help you gain enough prestige... and slow down the progress of the other hopefuls. I want you in that tomb when the time is right. We destroy Master Uthar together and I take his place... and you take your place at my side. A beautiful plan in its sheer simplicity.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. How do I know this isn't some test?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: *chuckle* You must not know much about the Sith, yet. If Uthar were to even suspect that I might be trying to supplant him, true or not... Well, let's just say that he wouldn't likely stop to ask too many questions before ensuring I was dealt with.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Very well. I agree. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Forget it. I don't want to be a part of this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I'm so glad you see it my way. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You are already a part of this. Don't be a fool.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I will begin to make preparations for your final test. Your only worry now is to get there... don't disappoint me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I'll be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You have had an excellent start... go, gain more prestige! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You are very close to succeeding... work quickly!
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What do you wish? I am eager to get this over with. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I understand you have impressed Master Uthar at least a little. That is good... we are one step closer towards completing my plan. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I hear that you have gained even more prestige. You are closing in on victory... this is good. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You've been doing well... I hear you've almost enough prestige to be declared the victor. Somehow I just knew you were the one who would succeed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Were I you, I would not get too excited just yet. You still have plenty left to do.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How do I get more prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You must impress Master Uthar... go to him with news of your deeds or artifacts you have discovered. The first and easiest way would be for you to learn the Code of the Sith and speak it to him. I can teach you that, if you like. Shall I go on? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The Code of the Sith is the easiest way, to start. I have told you all that you need to know of it, already.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Yes, go on. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No, I've heard enough.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Fair enough.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can you tell me about the Code of the Sith? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask more about the Code.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I want to know more about these ruins on the surface.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I have been involved in the work there over the last couple of years, but not often. Most of the excavating is left to the students. What did you wish to know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is there any way into the tomb of Naga Sadow?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Not unless you are accompanied by Master Uthar, no. It is strictly forbidden... and I truly doubt you could bypass the doors to the tomb with anything less than ship blasters. Even then, perhaps.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. There's no other way inside?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: None. I do not even know how Master Uthar gains entrance, to tell the truth, though I look forward to discovering that fact. I have searched many times, so do not bother... there is no other way. Do not fret, however. Simply get the prestige you need and you will see the tomb soon enough.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why are the Sith so interested in these ruins?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: We could learn much about the history of the ancient Sith... why they were on Korriban and why they left. Perhaps we could learn more about the origin of the Force, itself. With that knowledge could come great power.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I've heard enough.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: As you wish.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Tell me about yourself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: About myself? I am originally from Sleheyron, if you must know. I was a slave to a cruel master, Omeesh the Hutt. I am sure you don't need to know more.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. You mentioned you were from Sleheyron...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I did. I also said that you didn't need to know more. Why are you asking?
Easy 1. [Persuade] I just would like to know more about you, that's all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Success] I... see. Very well. I suppose there's no harm in the tale. As I said, I was originally a slave to one of the Hutts. The Hutts control everything on Sleheyron, and a slave is nothing to them. I was determined not to be 'nothing'. One night when the drunken worm had me alone in his chambers I stabbed him and escaped the compound. I stole onto a cargo ship and was not discovered by the crew until they reached the next system. They left me for dead on a desolate planetoid, alone... but that was fine by me. I was glad to be anywhere other than Sleheyron. It was not luck that I was eventually rescued, of course. The Force was strong with me, though I didn't know that at the time. Not until the Jedi told me, that is.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Failure] You know all that you need to. We can exchange niceties once Uthar is gone, if you desire. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Alright, forget I asked. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The Jedi found you? What happened?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I'd... rather not discuss it. Perhaps another time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Is there something else you needed?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'll be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I hope to see you again.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Hello, again. I trust all is going smoothly?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. How did you become a Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I... would prefer not to discuss that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd really like to hear the tale.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Why? There is no point. Have I asked you about your past?

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?
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Failure] Friends? We can be friends once Uthar is dead. Until then, a 'friend' is a weakness. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Failure] There is always harm in becoming too vulnerable. I will not be as weak as you desire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Is there something else you needed?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Success] I see. You... certainly have odd notions for one hoping to become a Sith. I'll play along... for now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Success] You... have odd notions for someone hoping to become a Sith.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Let's see... after escaping from Sleheyron I was found by the Jedi. They took me in and trained me even though I was a bit older than most Padawans.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You were a Jedi?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Not really, no. I never progressed beyond Padawan. I had discipline, but no peace... and after my treatment at the hands of the Hutts there was little room in me for the ways of the Jedi.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: You sound very much like... someone I used to know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Yes, well... I imagine I am not unique. Things very easily could have been very different for me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I wanted to use the Force to free the other slaves I knew, to fight for what I knew was right. The Jedi restrained me until I couldn't stand it any more. They claim the dark side is evil, but that isn't so. Sometimes anger and hatred are deserved and right. Sometimes things change because of it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But not always. Mostly it makes things worse. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But has anything changed? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I agree.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Any failure to get the results I want is due to a lack of power on my part. That can change, in time. As a Sith, my mettle is tested far more than when I was a Padawan. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: No... not yet. But my anger has not diminished, nor my desire to see change. The more time I spend with the Sith the more I am certain that one day I will be able to fight as I must. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: There is suffering and injustice in the universe. I am surprised the Jedi can even stand the stench of it, much less stand by and do nothing.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I know this may sound strange, but only my compassion stands in my way, now. Once that is gone let the slavers beware.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But... if you lose your compassion, will you still care about those slaves? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How long before you begin this fight, do you think? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. It's a commendable goal. I admire your spirit. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I find it hard to think of any Sith with compassion.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I... yes, of course. I mean losing my compassion as in... holding back... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I... well, there is much training to do. I... may be a long time... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Thank you. I only wish I was as strong with the Force as you are. You could change much, yourself, if you wanted to. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I suppose I shouldn't be telling you these things... sharing my weaknesses with you. Being a Sith doesn't make me a monster, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: But enough of that. I've talked about myself too much, surely you are tired of it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'll be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Come back soon... my friend.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have something to tell you about Yuthura...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Oh? What is my apprentice up to now?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Nothing. I shouldn't have brought it up.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I see. Well, then... should you change your mind... you know where to come, yes?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. She wants me to help her kill you at the final trial.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I see. It is good that you have come to me with this information, young one. It is a bit... ironic... that Yuthura has begun her plotting. I have been aware of her growing ambitions for some time, and had in fact already decided to remove her. Normally, the one who gains the most prestige would engage in a final trial... two of the students would fight. This time it will be Yuthura who battles, though she does not know it. Perhaps it will be you who combats her? Yes... perhaps so. This is what you can do. Give this pad to Adrenas... he will put some poison in her bath. This will weaken Yuthura for that final test, making her an easy target. Rather generous of me, don't you think?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Hm. This should be interesting. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'd love to know what's going on in that tricky mind of yours.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: For coming to me with this information and betraying your foolish trainer, I feel you are worthy of prestige, young one.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I have some news about Uthar...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What? What's happened? Our plan is still intact, I hope.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It's nothing. Our plan is fine.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Good. Let's keep it that way.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. He plans to have me fight you in the final test.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Ahhh. How very clever of him. Normally you would face some other student in the tomb, preferably one of the failed ones. Obviously Uthar has decided to get rid of me. But why...? Did you say something to him?

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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What?! You fool! While I respect your attempt to play both sides of the fence, you are playing a dangerous game. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Failure] Hmph. I truly doubt that. You are attempting to play both sides of the fence, I think. I respect that. You are playing a dangerous game, however. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: [Success] Then how could he suspect? Unless one of the others... never mind. It is not important, now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: If you think Uthar will truly be so grateful to you for double-crossing me, think again. Your only chance lies with me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: In the end, it works out better that it is only the two of us in the tomb with him. So long as we refuse to fight. Is there anything else I should know?

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.

Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Lie] He wants you poisoned. I don't know how, though. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Lie] No. I don't know anything else. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Lie] No, that's it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Hah! He's a fool. I can make preparations to resist any poisons. Thank you for telling me... now I will be far stronger than Uthar expects. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Good. I'm not about to rest on my laurels, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Here... this passcard will allow you access to Uthar's quarters. It's at the far end of the passages with the other quarters. Take this device as well and put it inside his cot. No-one should see you do it. Then Uthar will be too weak to stand up against us. Don't even think of failing me. You and I are too far into this now to back out.
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.

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:

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.

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:

If you speak to Kel Algwinn:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Oh, ah... hello. I don't remember seeing you here before. My name is Kel... Kel Algwinn. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Oh, hello again. You're, uh... doing well in your training?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know anything about the Code of the Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Yes, of course. I must admit I've never really understood it very well. Enough to please Master Uthar, I guess... but I still have trouble with it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'll be going. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. All things take time. Not to worry.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Err... well, good luck with your training. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Yeah. Yes, I suppose so. Thanks.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. And you're a full Sith? How pathetic.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Don't say that! Leave me alone, or you'll be sorry!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Fine, fine. Have it your way.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Just leave!

Otherwise:

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Is something wrong? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What's the problem?
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: This one isn't raving like the others. A doubter.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I... oh, uh, nothing.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you sure?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Y-yes. My master always says I am too trusting, too willing to show weakness. You're a Sith, so I really shouldn't... you know...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But I'm not a Sith, yet. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I can't persuade you to tell me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Oh, I know that. I mean... you aren't yet, but you intend to be. I mean you're just like everyone else here. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Uh, n-no, I really can't. A Sith... like you... would use any means to succeed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And you're not? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you saying you're not a Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Well I... I... I didn't mean it like that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Well, how did you mean it, then?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I... I shouldn't trust you. I can't trust you, can I?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. No, of course not. What kind of Sith are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I, uh, I suppose you're right. Never mind. Forget I said anything.

Otherwise:

Easy 1. [Persuade] Sure you can. Medium 1. [Persuade] Sure you can.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: [Failure] No... no, I shouldn't bother you with it. Forget I said anything.

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 Dialog.png 3. Out with it. This is getting tiresome. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Master Uthar probably wouldn't like to hear that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Is that it? Don't bother me with your petty weaknesses.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I... forget I said anything. Just... go back to your training, please. I have work to do. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Yes, I'm... I'm sorry. P-please don't, don't tell anyone... I'll get over it, I guess.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Everyone has doubts. Keep it up... you'll come around. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Alright. Suit yourself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I guess you're right. The dark side is... where I belong. No going back now. Th-thank you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Err... well, good luck with your training.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Do you know a student named Kel?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Yes... vaguely. The boy burdens himself with doubts and anxieties. It is sad to watch, really, for he does possess a certain flair with the Force. Kel will not survive long. Someone will betray him soon enough, and he will be dead. If you are smart and you know something, that person should be you.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have something to tell you about a student...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: A student, is it? What might you have to say?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Never mind.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: I see. Then leave me be if you have nothing to offer. I am sure you have much to do.

Otherwise:

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:

If you speak to Yuthura afterwards:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Hmmm. You're a rather tricky human, aren't you? However did you manage to convince Kel Algwinn to reveal himself to you? No matter. I applaud you for the maneuver, at any rate. An act worthy of a Sith, surely.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I rather enjoyed it. He was a fool. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. He wouldn't have lasted. I just put him out of his misery. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I... suppose so.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Now that's what I like to see... the flash of ambition in a young human's eyes. Your species has such remarkable retinal coloring, did you know that? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Yes, I... suppose so. The weak can surprise you sometimes with their strength, however. He could have surprised us. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What's this? Regrets? Not to worry, dear pupil, it... gets easier with time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: You have other things to turn your attention to, however, I'm sure. What do you need?

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. If it doesn't feel right, then perhaps you don't belong here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: But where would I go, then? What would I do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you thought about the Jedi? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It doesn't matter. Have you considered that the dark side just isn't your way? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Leave, obviously. You're not ready to be a Sith. You'll wind up dead.
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.

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.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Doubting Sith

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Maybe you don't remember me? I'm Kel... Kel Algwinn. We, uh, met in the academy on Korriban.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: You told me I should leave the Sith and seek out the Jedi. Well, I did. Everyone's been very nice... much nicer than I thought they would be.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I almost didn't think the Jedi Council would give me a chance, but they said everyone was welcome to return to the light side. I guess I never *really* believed in the dark side. This just feels so right. I can't remember the last time I felt at peace like this. They said I have a long road ahead of me, but they made me a proper Padawan and I have a Master, now. I... I just can't thank you enough.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You were too weak to be a Sith anyway. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. The decision was yours, Kel. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm glad I could help.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I... guess, if that's how you want to look at it. The Sith don't support each other like the Jedi do... and I don't think that's a weakness at all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I guess so. You pointed me in the right direction, though, and I have to be grateful for that. The Sith certainly didn't have my best interest at heart. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: I'm glad you were there. I don't think I ever would have made it through the academy alive. And now I might actually become a Jedi someday.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Well, at any rate, I wish you well. May... may the Force be with you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Kel Algwinn: Thank you again. I hope your mission for the Council goes well.

Code of the Sith[edit]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I can help you to understand it. Would you like to hear it?
"Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me."
Simple words, yet easily misunderstood. Would you care for me to explain anything?
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. 'Peace is a lie, there is only passion'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The Jedi would have you believe that peace is a desirable goal. That peace of the spirit is the way the Force is mastered, that a lack of conflict betters man. We know different. It is our passion... our hate and our desire... that fuels the Force. It is conflict that improves the lot of civilization and single being both. Conflict forces one to better oneself. It forces change, growth, adaption... evolution... or death. These are not our laws, but the universe's. Without conflict you have only stagnation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. 'Through passion, I gain strength'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: What fuels your power with the Force but your passion? The stronger, darker emotions. Anger, hatred, fear... these passions empower us.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What about love?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Love is more dangerous than all those things. Love leads to anger and hatred more often that not... but it also leads to mercy, which is far worse. That, however, is a lesson for another time.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Those seem like awfully negative passions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: Negative? Compared to what? What keeps even the most rudimentary creature alive? Fear to run, anger to fight... without it a creature would most surely die.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you saying we aren't anything more than a rudimentary creature?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: We are far more than them, perhaps, but in some ways we are little different. To think us creatures beyond the need of simple passions is a delusion.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. The Jedi say the opposite. How can both be right?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The Force gives us all power, even the Jedi. It is our mastery of our passion that gives us the strength they lack.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I see.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: It is our goal to be stronger, to achieve our potential and not rest upon our laurels. We are the seekers, not the shepherds.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. 'Through strength, I gain power'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The stronger you become in the Force, the more power you will achieve. But always must you fight for your power. Without strife, your victory has no meaning. Without strife, you do not advance. Without strife, there is only stagnation.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. 'Through power, I gain victory'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: How many sorts of victories can you imagine? Peaceful victory? Victory by sacrifice? A truce, an achievement? Unless the victory is achieved by demonstrating that your power is superior, it is only an illusion. Temporary at best. We seek more.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. 'Through victory, my chains are broken'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: This... has been argued over, and often. The chains represent our restrictions, both those placed upon us and those we place upon ourselves. Ultimately the goal of any Sith is to free herself from such restrictions. In a way, it is so we may do whatever we wish... but it is much more than that. One who has freed themselves from all restrictions has reached perfection. Their potential fulfilled. Perfect strength, perfect power, perfect destiny. Imagine it. That is our ideal, at any rate. It is said in Sith legend that the 'Sith'ari'... the perfect being... will one day lead us. But perhaps that is just a legend.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You don't think the Sith'ari can exist?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I... wonder what a being would be like. The legends say the Sith'ari will destroy us... and make us stronger than ever. But perhaps that is just a legend. Perfection is... a goal, I think, rather than a state of being. The Jedi would argue that, no doubt.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. 'The Force shall free me'?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The Force is our servant and our master. Our teacher and our companion. A weapon and a tool. Know it and you know the universe. Master it and you master the universe. Strive for perfection and the Force shall reward you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 7. I think I got it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I am not surprised. The Force is strong with you... master it and it shall serve you well.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I know the Code of the Sith.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Then finish the Code as I speak it. "Peace is a lie, there is only..."
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Serenity. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Strength. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Passion. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Victory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Chaos. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Harmony.

If you make a mistake, he stops you and you must begin again until you get it all correct:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: No. No, that is incorrect. I would have thought merely reciting the Code to be a simple matter. Ah, well.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: "Through passion I gain..."
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Serenity. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Strength. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Power. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Victory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Chaos. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Harmony.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: "Through strength I gain..."
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Serenity. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Peace. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Power. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Victory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Chaos. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Harmony.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: "Through power I gain..."
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Serenity. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Peace. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Control. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Victory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Chaos. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Harmony.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: "Through victory...."
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. ...I am free. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. ...I am superior. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. ...my chains disappear. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. ...my chains are broken. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. ...I have won free.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: "The Force shall free me." Yes, good. You have, indeed, learned the Code of the Sith. Speaking the words and knowing the words are, however, two different things.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Tell me, then, true or false: it is our passion that fuels the Force. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Tell me then, true or false: there is nothing worse than love. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Tell me then, true or false: victory by any means is desirable.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. False. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. True. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. True.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: No, it is true. Our passion, our hate and desire... that is what brings conflict, which gives us power. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: False. Mercy is worse than love. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: False. Unless victory proves your superiority, it is an illusion, it is temporary.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Sadly, it seems you did not understand the Code as well as I thought.

If you get it wrong, you must recite the Code again before answering his question. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. True. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. False. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. False.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Well done. I will test you no more... you know the Code. Very impressive.
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.

Renegade Sith[edit]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: There are a group of students who refused an order by Master Uthar to execute a group of civilians in the colony. Uthar declared that they were to be executed, themselves, but the students escaped and fled before the order could be carried out. We are certain that they have not left Korriban. No doubt they have not gotten far and are simply in hiding... we just do not know where, exactly. If you were to locate them and carry out Uthar's order, I am sure he would be most appreciative. Shall I go on? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The rebel students I told you about must still be found and dealt with... Master Uthar would be greatly impressed by their deaths, I am sure.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: How do you do, hopeful? Seeking prestige, yes?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who might you be?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: I am a trainer here at the academy. I think I may be able to offer you some aid in gaining prestige, if you desire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: May the Force serve you well.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Yes. Can you help me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Do you know of our renegade students?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No. I don't know what you're talking about. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The students who refused to kill for Master Uthar?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Ah. Let me tell you what I can, then. A group of students were ordered to perform executions on civilians within the colony. They refused to carry out the orders. Master Uthar naturally ordered them killed... but they fled before this could take place. If one could carry out Uthar's order, it would be worth considerable prestige. There are five of them, if I remember... and they cannot be far, as they have no method to leave the planet. Likely hiding in the hills on the surface. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Those are the ones. It seems you have already heard of them. There is little more I can tell you, then. Should you locate their hiding place, you would gain considerable prestige, I am sure.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Now if you will excuse me, I must return to my studies.

After dealing with the renegade students and returning to Master Uthar:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: I understand that our renegade students have been dealt with... and that you are responsible for that. Congratulations.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Computer Panel: FILE: REBEL STUDENTS LED BY THALIA MAY
ORDER FOR EXECUTION MADE BY MASTER UTHAR WYNN

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Greetings. You're one of the new hopefuls, aren't you? I imagine you're eager to garner some prestige for Master Uthar. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Still working to earn prestige, are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: My name is Tamlen. I'm assigned here to the library... mostly keeping it up to date with new discoveries and such.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. New discoveries? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What are you doing here? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I am. Anything you can help me with?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: I am adding new entries into our library's database based on the excavations in the valley. Currently I'm working on Ajunta Pall... quite a fascinating subject. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Hmm. That depends. Do you know anything about Ajunta Pall?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who is Ajunta Pall? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Ajunta Pall the ancient Sith Lord?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Ajunta Pall was one of the first of the great Sith Lords... at least, according to the ruins here on Korriban. One of the tombs out in the Valley of the Dark Lords belongs to him. He wielded a powerful sword, by all accounts. Some of us believe it might be in that tomb, which is quite exciting. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: The very same.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. His sword? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you know anything about his sword?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: According to legend, Ajunta Pall forged a sword imbued with the essence of the dark side. Someone who found it could gain considerable prestige. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: A little. Some of us believe it may be found in his tomb in the Valley of the Dark Lords. Whoever found the sword could gain great prestige.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Hasn't any effort been made to recover it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Some unsuccessful attempts have been made. I truly don't know why a more concerted effort isn't made, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How do I get to this valley?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: You simply need to follow the east passage... there's an exit there which will lead you up to the surface. Look for Tariga... she is in that area and can probably help you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Gain prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Isn't that what you're interested in? Although I suppose you could also keep it...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you know about the sword's powers?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Well... the legends say the sword had dark power, but that may only be a story. We will never know unless we can examine it more closely.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I've got to be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: I imagine you've got a lot to do.

If you return with the sword, or after turning it over to Uthar Wynn:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Hmm. Is that the sword of Ajunta Pall you have there? Fascinating. If it truly is, you might want to hand that over to Master Uthar, no? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: How do you do? Excuse me... I must return to my studies.

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):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: Oh-ho! If it isn't the freak from the colony. Hello, freak.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: Shaardan's the name. Don't forget it. You'll have me to thank when you get kicked out of here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Get lost, nerf-herder. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You want to make an issue out of it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Leave me alone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: You'll get yours. Just you wait. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: And go into the dueling room? Hah! I've got better things to do than give you a fair fight. You can count on seeing me later, though. My lightsaber has your name on it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: Fine by me. I can't wait to gut you, personally... one less competitor to deal with. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: So you got a little prestige. It won't help you... I'll gut you eventually, just you watch.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: I remember you. You're alright. Trying for the academy, I see.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: The name's Shaardan. Didn't I tell you that back in the colony? Maybe not.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So are you, obviously.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: That's true. I had no idea you were coming for the academy when I met you in the colony, though.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to co-ordinate strategy? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I challenge you to a duel! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: I don't work or play well with others. Thanks for the offer, though. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: You want to challenge me? To a duel? Heh... I've got a lot more planned than giving someone like you a fair fight. I guess we'll meet eventually... on my terms. Good luck until then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: You and me both. We're going to have to get some prestige... quick. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Shaardan: I know. You and I are equal in prestige, you know. Could be tight.

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:

Sith Student
Sorry, I don't have time to speak. My training awaits.
You aren't even a full Sith. Don't bother me.
Get out of my way. I don't have time to deal with hopefuls.
Come back when you've taken your final test. If you survive it.
If Master Uthar gives you an order, you'd better follow it. There were some students who disobeyed him and now they're hiding out on the surface somewhere.
There are some students in hiding that refused to follow an order. Master Uthar wants them found and dead... and is offering a reward for it, too!
Just be careful if you go into the valley. I hear there's a hermit living in the hills that kidnaps students.
The former master of the academy, Jorak Uln, is supposedly hiding out in the hills on the surface as some kind of mad hermit.
Word is that one of our experimental droids went mad and escaped and is hiding in the ruins. I wonder why we don't just gather up and destroy it?
One of my friends went to find that crazy droid that's hiding in the ruins in the valley. He hasn't come back, yet.
Ha! It's great to be on the winning side, isn't it? We've been crushing the Republic at every battle so far!
The latest reports say the Republic is on the run. Before long the Sith will be ruling the entire galaxy.
Darth Malak is one of the greatest Sith leaders ever. I hope he comes back to the academy before I leave.
It is my most fervent hope to serve under Darth Malak once my training is complete. Don't you feel the same?
Rumor around the academy is that you had something to do with those rebel students being caught, finally. They got what they deserved, I say.
I was told that you actually met the old master of the academy, Jorak. Is the hermit as mad as they say?
The buzz is that you took care of that crazy droid out in the ruins. That's pretty impressive.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: Greetings, student.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: My name is Adrenas. I am the chamberlain of the academy... generally I look after maintenance and supply, here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. So you aren't a Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: No, not truly. I serve the Sith, but I do not study and train in the Force as you do.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Master Uthar gave me this datapad for you.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can I ask you some questions?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: You are one of the hopefuls who look to gain prestige, yes? I am afraid there is little that I could help you with. I am sure you would prefer to speak to one of the students, here, or perhaps the trainers. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: I am sure there is nothing I can help you with. I am only a servant to the academy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How come you don't speak Galactic Basic?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: Galactic Basic is the language of the Republic, but I come from a world beyond the edges of Republic space. There the Twi'lek language of interstellar trade and commerce is the most common dialect. I can speak your language, but my accent is still very pronounced. Some at the Academy would mock me for this, and I am not eager to become the subject of ridicule. There are many humans here who come from worlds beyond Republic space. We seem to be more sympathetic to the Sith cause. Some of them are even training at the Academy, unlike me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: If you wish. Good luck with your training. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Adrenas: May the Force serve you well.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Hmph. Another hopeful wandering about the academy? *sigh* I suppose you want to know how to get prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No. I don't need any help.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Hah! I doubt that. Have it your way, however, off you go.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who might you be?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: I am one of the academy trainers, of course. You'd do well to watch your tone with me, hopeful... I'll be one of your instructors when and if you reach your final test.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Final test?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Oh, yes. You gather prestige to earn the opportunity to take the final test... you don't automatically become a student. Heh heh... you'll see.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: May the Force serve you well.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: Greetings, fellow student. Are you planning on going to the Valley of the Dark Lords? I am headed there soon, myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: I am known as Tariga, a student here at the academy. It is my pleasure to be assigned to the Sith ruins, to study their past and unearth new relics.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're human, but you speak like a Twi'lek...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: I was raised on a planet in the Outer Rim. We were not part of the Republic, so we never adopted their language. I can understand Basic, but I am not fluent in speaking it yet. I am, however, quite fluent in the Twi'lek tongue, so I prefer to use it when dealing with others. It is nearly as well known as Basic, and no one will make fun of my accent. I think I made the right choice. I doubt I would have been assigned to the Sith ruins in the Valley of the Dark Lords if I was stuttering and stumbling over an unfamiliar language.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How do I get to this valley?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: The exit at the end of this hall will bring you to the surface. There you merely follow a natural path through the rock and you will come to the valley, itself. You will find many Sith working on the dig at the southern end of the valley. If you head into the northern end where the strange pillars are, do beware of the tuk'ata beasts.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What are these tuk'ata?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: Local beasts that hunt in packs and are not at all afraid of attacking students... or even armed patrols. They have proven to be a hindrance to our progress.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: Arrogant hunters always assume the animal knows how important they are.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: Several attempts have been made to destroy their nests in the tombs, but their numbers have proven to be too great.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What can you tell me about the valley?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: There are four tombs that have been uncovered so far, each holding the remains of a Sith Lord from a time long ago when the Sith were first on Korriban. We have found evidence that there were larger structures underground, a veritable ancient fortress... but it appears to have been destroyed. The tombs are all that remain intact. Currently we are allowed access only to three tombs... the one furthest to the left may only be entered by Master Uthar and those he brings with him. Fortunately there is still much else for us to find. I am pleased that you have joined us.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Anything I should be watchful for?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: Yes, indeed. Shortly before entering the valley, you will pass by a cave entrance. Do not enter it... it is full of dangerous creatures we call shyrack. The only other danger to speak of is the tuk'ata. There are guards that will protect you if you remain in the south part of the valley, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What are these shyrack?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: Flying creatures that lay webs in their tunnels. The webs can only be burned or moved by explosives I believe. Best to avoid them entirely.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. I'll be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Tariga: I wish you well, fellow student.
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]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Teacher: Heh. Well... the first thing you should know is that that is not a name you should mention around Master Uthar if you can avoid it. Jorak Uln was once Uthar's master, you see, and the head of this academy. He went a little insane, however, and Uthar forced him to flee to the surface and hide. It seems that Jorak has been spending his time kidnapping students who wander into the Valley of the Dark Lords. No idea why. I've also no idea why Uthar doesn't do something about it. If you want prestige, however, you'll find that hermit, as everyone calls him... you'll find Jorak and either kill him or bring back anything he's been writing. Uthar would like that. Now begone. I have better things to do than chat with lost hopefuls.
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):

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: It's a bad year to try and become a Sith, you know... I've got it all wrapped up. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: You hanging around, still? Don't you have your own plans? Not that they'll help you... I'm in for sure, you know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Mekel, right?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: The name's Mekel. I'm one of the hopefuls up for Sith-hood, just like you. Well, I'm the one that's going to make it, that is. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: That's right. You might as well just go home, you know. There can only be one Sith this year, and that's me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Whatever. I'm the one who's going to make it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Well, you're off to a super start. You've got no more prestige than I do, at the moment. Thing is: I know how to get some. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Maybe. You're not doing too bad, I suppose. I know something you don't, though.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You're lying. I can tell. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I've got to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Think what you like. Just remember: only one of us gets to become a Sith. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Yes, I imagine you've got some scurrying around to do, don't you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: You've got some prestige already. Relax, why don't you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Go ahead: gloat. I'll catch up to you, yet.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You know the Code of the Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Uhhh... no. Nobody here will tell you anything about that. I've got a better plan, though.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What makes you so sure? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How do you plan on getting prestige? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. And what's that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: You think I would tell you? Have my brains started dribbling out of my nose, or something?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It would be an improvement. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Maybe we can trade information? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I got my own plans.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Funny. Say that after I'm a full Sith and I'll ground your face into the dirt just for fun. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: There's nothing you know that I could possibly want. Thanks anyhow. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Well, you keep working on that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Yeah... so I see. I'll be keeping my eye on you.

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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: [Failure] I could, but what would be the point in that? See you around, chump.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: [Success] Hmph. I guess there's no harm in it. Word has it that Master Uthar gives big points for Sith artifacts that are brought back from the valley.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The valley? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You just found that out, did you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Thanks for the tip.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: The Valley of the Sith Lords. You know... where the academy does all its excavating. If you really don't know, just go out the east exit and you'll see. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Hmph. Well, if you've known for so long, why haven't you taken advantage of it, yet? Yeah, just like I thought. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mekel: Well, you're free to go wander out there, if you like. Me, I'll be seeing you later.

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Ahhh, maybe you can do better than I. This Mandalorian is proving more resistant than I expected.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What are you trying to do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: I'm trying to get him to tell us where his weapon cache is hidden. So far all the serum combinations I'm using are proving ineffective. If I bring his drug threshold too high, he'll go into shock and be useless. Too low and he just refuses to talk. It's been maddening.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Err... no thanks. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Fine, go on then. I *must* know where his weapon cache is! Damn him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Don't bother me. I'm trying to think how I'm going to question this prisoner. I need to know where that cache is!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How do you drug him?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Just activate the console... it gives you a variety of options for serum dosage. The right amount applied at the right rate should do it. The real trick is that the only way to gauge your progress is to watch the prisoner closely for his reaction. Our scanners can't pick up his vitals.
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]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Certainly. Just don't kill him or send him into shock. He's supposed to be questioned, not executed.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: If you manage to get the location of his cache out of him, I'll be sure to pass on the good word to Master Uthar. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: If you manage to get the location of his cache out of him, it'll save me a lot of trouble. Up to you.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: Use... use whatever method you wish, Sith. You will not break my will! My mind is my own, and I will tell you nothing!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Can you speak Galactic Basic?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: I know your language, Sith - but I won't give you the satisfaction of speaking it!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. [Whisper] Do you know any way I could free you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: You... you are trying to trick me! I do not believe you!
Medium 1. [Persuade] Trust me... I'll help you if I can!
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Success] If... if you speak the truth... then use the console to put me... in a catatonic state... Your people will... remove me, throw me away. I can survive for long periods... in this state. I can escape, then... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Failure] N-no! You lie! I will never believe the words of a Sith!!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll think about it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Fine. Have it your way.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: Then... I win again...

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. [Activate the serum console.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Computer Panel: [How do you wish to use the console?]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 7. [Leave it alone.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Computer Panel: [You step away from the 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...
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Whisper] It is in... it is in my ship. The cache... it is in a trap door... hidden on my ship.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Whisper] Use it... I no longer... need. I give it to you... in exchange for my life... human...
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.]
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
3. [Inject truth serum: small dosage.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. [Apply anti-serum: moderate dosage.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. [Apply anti-serum: small dosage.]
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: *groan* I will... say... n-nothing! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: *groan* I... you will... g-get nothing! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: *groan* Y-you... can do... nothing to me! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: ...ahhh...

The doses in each dosage are as follows:

Truth serum Anti-serum
High Moderate Small Moderate Small
+5 +3 +2 -2 -1

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

Dialog
< 5 5-6 7-8 9
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: My will is my own, Sith! I will answer nothing! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: I... my mind is yet my own... Sith... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: I... y-yet... retain my... m-mind... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: ungghhhh... I... I y-yet... my mind...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me where your weapon cache is! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I changed my mind. Tell me where the cache is... now!
< 5 5-6 7-8
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: Never! A Mandalorian will never fall before such as you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: N-never! I... will... say nothing! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: N-n-no! I... will... not!
Low (Affect Mind) 4. [Force Persuade] You want to tell me where your cache is.
< 5 5-6 7-8
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Failure] N-never! Your... your mind tricks... do not work on me! They are useless! As... as are you! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Failure] N-never! Y-your... mind tricks... do not work! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Victim: [Failure] N-n-never! Y-your... mind... tricks... d-do not...

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).

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
Sith Victim: I... I will... it is in... it is in my ship. The cache... it is in a trap door... hidden on my ship...
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -3
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Yes! I heard that! Excellent job! Thank you for locating the cache. Naturally I would see you rewarded, but I would prefer that everyone believe that I extracted the information.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What?! Are you joking?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Of course not. Information extraction is my specialty... I'm not about to let it be known that some whelp did my job better. You had some fun, didn't you? Now run along and let's not turn this into anything unpleasant.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not going to let you get away with this!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Interrogator: Oh? I suppose one would need to be alive to go running to Master Uthar to report the location of the cache, wouldn't they? Does that mean that you are ready to battle a true Sith, then? Shall we make an issue of 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.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You do? That is most interesting. Where might that be?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I've... changed my mind.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Oh? How very sad, young one. You should learn to grab your advantages whenever you can.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It is hidden within a trap door on his ship.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Hmm. How ironic that I recently had his vessel scrapped for parts, then. I had assumed it had been thoroughly scanned... apparently not. Still... you have done well in bringing me information that others could not unearth on their own. I am impressed.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Mandalorian Weapons Cache
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]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I would suggest you talk to the other prospective Sith and find one that you can gain an advantage with. I believe Lashowe would be an excellent choice. She is too trusting. I have little doubt you could talk her into letting you 'help' her somehow. Just make sure that it is you who gains the advantage, not her. Be ruthless, if you must. That is the only thing that will impress Uthar. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I still think that approaching Lashowe would be your best move. She is too trusting and can no doubt be talked into aiding your cause.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: The only other idea I can suggest to you is that you head into the Valley of the Dark Lords on the surface. There are ancient ruins there which can be explored. It's possible you might find some artifacts or information in them which would please Uthar... it's difficult to say for certain.
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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You? I remember you from the colony. I can't believe you actually made it into the academy. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I remember you from the colony. You seem alright, though you'll not win the right to train before me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: My name is Lashowe. Remember it, for I'll be the one who earns the prestige to move on. You'll have to be satisfied with next year, I suppose. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You don't remember? My name is Lashowe. We met in the colony, ever so briefly.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have to go. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I must go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Do run along... you have a long way to catch up, after all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Mmm. Don't trip or kill yourself or anything. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I'll get more prestige and catch up to you. Count on it.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I remember you. I challenge you to a duel! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I challenge you to a duel.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: A duel? Fine, you run along and get ready while I go gain some prestige. Idiot.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You're trying to become a Sith as well?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Just figured that out, did you? It just so happens that I have a sure-fire way of pulling ahead in this little contest of ours. You don't really have a chance.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You talk big, but that's about it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: And what do you have to brag about? You haven't earned any prestige at all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Uh-huh. Well, you may be the competition, but I've still got the edge on you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You may have more prestige than me, but that won't last long, just you wait and see.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And what way is that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I've found an artifact that will impress Uthar far more than anything you could ever scrounge up. I'll win for sure.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Fine, forget it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Fine by me.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why haven't you brought it to Uthar yet?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I don't have it just yet. I'll get it... when I'm good and ready.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Where is this artifact?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Hah! Like I would tell you. Why don't I just let you rob me while you're at it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. It's guarded, isn't it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: So what if it is? I'll get it eventually, regardless. Nothing good comes without a bit of a fight... that's the Sith motto, more or less.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Perhaps we could work together? Easy 1. [Persuade/Lie] Maybe I could help you get it?
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: Now where are you going with this, I wonder? KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: This is not wise. She'll be as willing to lie as you are.
KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: Shut up, old man, and don't spoil anything or I'll twist that scrawny neck of yours.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: It was just an idle question. Don't get so testy, damn it. KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Yeah, but if we do it first, we win. Shush up, Big Z.
Easy 1. [Persuade/Lie] Maybe I could help you get it? Easy 2. [Persuade] I'd like to help you retrieve your artifact.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Failure] Hah! Forget it. I'm not going to be tricked so easily. Just move along, now.

Otherwise:

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.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Success] Help me get it? I don't know... Hmph. I suppose I *could* use some help. The artifact I know of certainly won't be easy to take. But why should I work with you?
Low (Affect Mind) 1. [Force Persuade] Because you want to work with me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Failure] Trying to force me to agree with you, hey? Don't make me laugh. You want my cooperation, you'll have to get it the old-fashioned way.
Hard 2. [Persuade] Because together we will be unbeatable. Medium 2. [Persuade] Because together we will be unbeatable. Easy 3. [Persuade] I've always wanted to work with a beautiful woman.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Failure] Forget it. I never liked you to begin with, and I'm not about to work with you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Failure] Hmmm... no. No, it's not worth it. I'll figure out how to get the artifact, myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: So run along and get your own prestige, will you? Thanks ever so much.

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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Success] Hmmm. You make a decent case. I suppose it's possible that Master Uthar could award both of us prestige. We'd be ahead of the others, for sure... I want something out of this, first, however. I want you to tell me about some lead you have for where I could find more prestige.
Medium 1. [Lie] There is a powerful Sith cloak in the furthest tomb in the valley. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. But I don't know any leads... KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Forget it! I'm not giving you any leads!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Failure] How gullible to you believe me to be? The furthest tomb? Yeah right. Find your own prestige. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Then you'll just have to come back when you do. Of course, I may have changed my mind by then... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Then you're on your own.

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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: [Success] Oh? I hadn't heard about that. Fair enough... I will have to look into it. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Oh? I hadn't heard about them. It certainly merits looking into. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I think I have heard of that. But it's good enough... at least I know you're telling the truth.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You've given me a lead, so I'll let you in on my plan. The artifact that I've discovered is an ancient Jedi holocron.

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

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Unfortunately, the holocron lies in the gullet of a tuk'ata mother. I can arrange for us to 'meet' her, but you're going to have to help me in putting her down. That make sense to you? Go into the valley when you're prepared enough. I'll be amongst the central pillars, near the north end.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And I'm just supposed to trust you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: And I'm just supposed to trust *you*? You're the one who asked to work on this, remember? You watch me and I'll watch you. I don't trust you any more than you trust me. If you don't like that, don't come.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why do you think this holocron is so important?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Because it probably contains secrets from the time when the Sith ruins on this planet first existed. You don't think that Master Uthar would find that impressive?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What is a holocron?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: A holocron... this holocron, anyway... is an ancient recording device. It can store and display large amounts of information.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. See you there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Remember: the central pillars in the valley. I'll be waiting, so don't take too long.
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.

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:

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: If you're here to use the dueling room, go ahead. I'm through with it, for the moment.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What kind of dueling are you talking about?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: This is where you get to hone your killing styles. We get sent captives all the time to practice on. It's very handy.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's barbaric!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: Why? It'd be a waste just to execute them. At least this way they're useful.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You mean... we can kill any of the prisoners here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: You only get so many before the terminal cuts you off. Some of the students are a little bloodthirsty and get carried away, after all.
Never 2. [Persuade] All of the captives here need to be released.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: [Failure] Don't be foolish. If Uthar wants to send an order like that, he can bloody well tell me himself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What do I need to do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: Just go to the computer console and open up one of the cages. And don't be wasteful... we only get so many captives a month, you know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I challenge you to a duel.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Duelist: No thanks. I'm pretty bushed right now. Maybe later.

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:

Captive
Go away. There's nothing we need to talk about.
The Republic will come for me. And when they do, you'll get what's coming to you!
You can release me or kill me... but don't stand there pretending to be my friend.
Get lost, Sith. I'm not falling for any of your tricks.
[The captive cannot speak at this time.]

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: The name's Dustil. That satisfy your curiosity enough?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Dustil? As in Dustil Onasi?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: So you know my last name, so what?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How did you end up at the academy?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: What is with the questions? My life is none of your business, so get lost.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Aren't you Carth Onasi's son?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: No, I'm not. I don't know who you're talking about.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you sure...?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Look... I don't want to hear that name ever again. Ever. You understanding me? Now get lost.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can I ask you some questions?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: As if I'm not busy enough with my own work? Go pester someone else with your stupid questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. There's no need to act like that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Oh, I'm sorry, did I hurt your feelings? Why don't you run to Master Uthar and tell him all about it. I'm sure he'll be very sympathetic.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You want to make an issue out of it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: You know what I want? I want for you to run along and do whatever it is you're supposed to be doing. I'm too busy to deal with morons. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Well, don't let me keep you.

Otherwise:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Dustil? Is that you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Oh, lovely. It's Father. Figures that you'd show up after all this time. How did you manage to get inside the academy?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Through the front doors. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Same way you did, I bet. I'm training to become a Sith. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Does it matter? We're here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Cute. I wonder how interested Master Uthar would be to know just who he has in his web. Unless you've switched sides, Father? But I doubt that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Haha. And I'm supposed to believe that my self-righteous father has fallen into the habit of accompanying Sith in their training? I doubt that. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Maybe it doesn't matter. Or maybe Master Uthar would be interested in knowing just what kind of company he has present here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Just why are you here, Father? Not for me, I hope. Couldn't you have gotten yourself blown up on some ship and spared us this reunion?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Dustil... what? What are you talking about? I... I thought you were dead!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Too bad you didn't still think that. Or did you really think I would be happy to see you? Look, everyone! It's Father, come to rescue me at long last! Sure, he may have left Mother and I to die on Telos, but that doesn't matter!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, I didn't abandon you! The task force just arrived too late. Telos was in ruins, and your mother... I held her while... But I looked for you. I swear I looked everywhere --
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Ah, save it. You abandoned us long before. We were alone all during the wars, and even once you came back, you still didn't stay.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I didn't have a choice! I was needed...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Yeah? Well you were needed at home, too. You were needed when the bombing started and I got captured. You know what? It doesn't matter. Not any more. I have a new family now, a family that cares about me. I don't need you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: The Sith? You can't mean that! No, the Sith killed your mother! The Sith destroyed Telos!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: So? You're the soldier, father. How many mothers have you killed?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, you've been brainwashed. The son I knew would never --
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: You never knew me. You weren't even there to know me, so don't presume to tell me what I would or wouldn't do!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't know what's been done to you, but you're coming with me out of here. Now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Touch me, old man, and I'll kill you. Get out! Get out of here before I tell the Sith that you're here!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Calm down, Dustil. Carth is only trying to protect you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I don't need his protection! Not anymore. The Sith give me everything I need.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You can't mean that! The Sith are... they're evil. They're the dark side. They... they took me away from you and your mother. They're... they're what took you from me!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: No, they're not evil! They're not! The dark side is superior, and you... you were at war long before they came along!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: The Sith war to conquer, to rule the helpless. I went to war for *you*, Dustil. For your freedom, your future!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Heh. I... don't believe you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: If I failed you, son, then it's... it's *my* failure. Please don't add to it by becoming part of something evil.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Prove it. Prove that the Sith are so evil and I'll... I'll think about it.

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 Carth.png Carth: Shut up! Stay out of this! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Yeah, I can just imagine what you two are up to, here. Master Uthar will be more than happy to hear about it, I'm sure. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No! I won't accept that! I won't give up on him!!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Is that all you do? Give out orders? Well you can't show up after all this time and expect to give me orders! I'm not your soldier and I'm sure as hell not your son! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Why not? You gave up on Mother and I a long time ago. We were just an afterthought next to your glory-hunting!
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Stop it, Dustil! Stop it! I won't let you go on like this! What have they done to you?! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... wish I could help you, son. I truly do.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: They gave me a life, old man. They gave me power! You... you didn't even give me so much as a second's notice. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Right. Just as I thought. You can't prove anything.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No... no, that's not true! I was there when you were younger, but I had to leave to fight! I fought for *you*, for your freedom! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You're going to have to fight your own battles, Dustil. I've...I've fought all I can for you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: No you didn't. You fought for yourself. For glory. Well, the Sith can do that, too. We learn to fight... and to kill. You want to see what I've learned, 'father'?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No, Dustil, don't! I don't --
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Too late, old man! You should have left when you had the chance!!

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Come with us, then, and we'll show you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How can we prove something like that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I'm not going to follow you around, forget it. If you're caught, they'll just think I was betraying them.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I'll stay right here. I won't tell anyone you're here... for now. You find some 'proof' and you bring it to me. If I hear you asking questions about me or doing a single thing to jeopardize my position in the Sith, I swear I'll tell everyone what you're up to. You got that, father? You prove what you're saying is true. I'm not going anywhere, otherwise.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... got it, Dustil. I'll be back. I swear it.
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.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I don't see the old man with you. Did he come to his senses and leave, finally? I knew he couldn't prove anything. I don't know why you're still here. Why don't you just follow him wherever he went? You and I have no business at all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Back already? So tell me, father, where's this 'proof' you promised?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I don't have anything. Yet. But I haven't given up on you, Dustil.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Yeah, well, that's a surprise. I gave up on you a long time ago. So did Mother, for that fact.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Please... don't say that...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Whatever. Just go if you're going. I have things to do.

If you speak to Carth:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: No. What I want is to find something... anything... that will convince Dustil that we're telling the truth. There must be *something* here in the academy we can bring to him, something that would show him what the Sith really are!

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:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Computer Panel: FILE: STUDENT DUSTIL ONASI
FORCE POTENTIAL: CONSIDERABLE
FELLOW STUDENT SELENE HINDERING PROGRESS
FURTHER FILE DETAILS DOWNLOADED TO PERSONAL DATAPAD
AUTHORIZATION: MASTER UTHAR WYNN

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.
Datapad

This datapad appears to contain numerous entries of notes made by Master Uthar of the Sith Academy. Most prominent of the recent entries is the following:

"The pupil known as Dustil has shown remarkable progress. His talent with the Force is great. The same, however, cannot be said for the human female that he arrived with, Selene.
She has little talent. Moreover, Dustil holds a great degree of affection for her. This is a weakness in the boy and has been slowing down his training.
Orders were sent this morning to have the girl removed from the academy and terminated. I will tell Dustil that she was killed in the valley. He will forget her soon enough, I think... he is too promising to lose at this juncture."
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Not right now. I think this datapad we found is the evidence we need. We have to bring it to Dustil right away.

When you do so:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. How about this notepad? Did you know someone named Selene? KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I have a datapad I want you to look at. You knew someone named Selene?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Selene? She's the one who convinced me to come to the academy with her. Why? Where did you get this?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Look at it. It belongs to Master Uthar, doesn't it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Yes... it's his. But... he told me... he, he said that she'd been lost on a mission in the valley. This... this says that they...
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Killed her because she was hindering your progress. Superiority at any cost, Dustil. There's your evil. Or can you live with that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: No. No, I can't. I... I had no idea... they lied to me.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, there's the son I remember. Now will you leave here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I... no. You go do whatever you have to, father. I... I have some other friends here. I have to warn them what's going on. And maybe I can, you know, look around here and find out some more information. From the inside. Something that might help you.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I... don't suppose there's any way I could talk you out of that, is there? I mean, you're not going to do anything half way. Sounds familiar.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I... guess it does.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'm proud of you, Dustil. You aren't hanging onto a lie after you see it for what it is. Not everyone could do that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: Maybe... after this is over, we can... talk. I'm still not sure about... us, but I'll listen. Maybe we can get back to where we should have been.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I'd like that.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dustil Onasi: I'll go back to Telos when this is over. You can find me there. Goodbye... father.
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.

KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Yes? What's on your mind?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you think you'll see Dustil again?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: I think so. If he's anything like he used to be, Dustil hates to be tricked. There's no way he'll let the Sith trick him again. As for whether or not he'll be my son again... I don't know. He's so full of anger and hate... I wasn't expecting him to be like this. Maybe we can work it out. I hope so. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Thanks, by the way... for all your help.

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.
