The entrance to the Sith Academy is on the opposite side of a canyon to Dreshdae.

Dreshdae[edit]

With the door to Dreshdae behind you to the west, a ramp descends to the east. A protocol droid and a utility droid roam around its base:

I cannot render assistance, citizen. Move along. Beep beep beep-oop!

There's a metal box to the northwest, and another to the southwest:

Item(s) Received Metal Box Item(s) Received Metal Box

Sith Academy[edit]

Cross the bridge over the canyon separating Dreshdae from the Sith Academy on the east side. You only need to speak to the Sith Academy guard, but Belaya may confront you beforehand and you can move closer to the light or dark side of the Force after speaking to Mekel.

Belaya[edit]

If Juhani was slain during your Jedi Trials on Dantooine then Belaya stands before the entrance to the Sith Academy and challenges you before you can speak to anyone else. Combat is inevitable, but if you killed Juhani then you should certainly be able to kill her:

Dialog
Belaya: You! I remember you! What are you doing here?! Did the Jedi Council send you? I swear I will expose you if they have!
1. Err... do I know you? 3. I'll not suffer your insults! Medium 2. [Persuade] No, the Jedi certainly didn't send me here.
Belaya: So you do not even have the decency to remember me? I have cursed your name every moment since we last met on Dantooine. Belaya: But you will! You pretend to be a Sith, but I know who you are! I have cursed your name every moment since we last met on Dantooine! Belaya: [Failure] You do not fool me for a second! The Council fawns over you and places all their hope in you to save them... you wouldn't turn on them! Belaya: [Success] I see. So you have come to join the Sith as I have? I should have known that would happen, as should the Council.
Belaya: I am Belaya, once of the Jedi but now of the Sith... it was your murder of Juhani that placed this bitter blackness in my heart! Belaya: You are a spy... and a murderer. It was you who killed Juhani and placed this bitter blackness in my heart that I cannot get rid of! Belaya: The Council is nothing but a slow and doddering farce, placing all their trust in you... and you failed them, just as you failed Juhani.
Belaya: I couldn't touch you on Dantooine, but I can, here! The Sith have taught me the power of freedom... and revenge! FOR JUHANI!! Belaya: Do you even remember me? I am Belaya, and it is your murder of Juhani that brought me here. Fortunately, I have learned the power of revenge!

If you return to Dantooine then you can report this to Vrook Lamar in the Jedi Council Chambers:

Vrook Lamar: It is well that you are still alive, Padawan, in that you have not yet managed to fail us completely. Why is it that you are now bothering me instead of seeking out the Star Map?
3. I have slain Belaya on Korriban. She was a Dark Jedi.
Vrook Lamar: I find that... disturbing. It is our failings as teachers that enabled this to happen. Do not give in to the same dark urges as she did or you may suffer a similar fate.

Mekel[edit]

Three prospective Sith students stand to the left of the Sith academy entrance, while two closest to the door have already collapsed, and the Sith apprentice Mekel stands opposite them to the right of the entrance. If you speak to the prospects in the middle and on the right before Mekel:

Prospective Sith Student: You'll get your... turn soon enough, fool. And when you do, *Cough* I will be there, laughing as you collapse from... heat exhaustion and Mekel's beatings! Prospective Sith Student: P-please... don't hurt me... I am too weak with hunger...

If you speak to Mekel before asking the Aqualish prospect on the left what he's doing:

Dialog
Mekel: Leave me be. Can't you see that I'm busy?
1. Are you one of the Sith from the academy?
Mekel: Isn't that obvious? You must be very sharp to possess such an astute sense of perception. Obviously deaf, however, since I asked you to leave.
2. Can I ask you some questions? 3. Fine, I'll leave you alone.
Mekel: No you may not. I'm busy amusing myself and I'm not going to miss any of the fun. Now get lost before I teach you a lesson. Mekel: Good. I don't want to miss this for anything, heh...

Speak to the Aqualish prospect:

Dialog
Prospective Sith Student: I have to stand at attention. P-please... don't distract me, whoever you are.
3. Fine, I'll leave you to it.
Prospective Sith Student: Th-thank you... wish me luck.

Otherwise:

2. Are you one of the Sith?
Prospective Sith Student: N-no... no, I'm not. I'd like nothing better, however. Th-that's... that's why I'm here.
1. What are you doing?
Prospective Sith Student: I... I'm trying to prove my worth to enter the Sith academy, here. We were told that if we stood here long enough... we would be worthy.
Jolee: Seems like not much to do to be worthy of anything. How long you been up to it, boy?
Prospective Sith Student: We've been here... for so many days. I'm so hungry! Some... some of us have died. But I must be strong, I must! I will keep standing!
1. Who put you up to this? 2. Are you crazy? You have to stop! 3. Here, I have a bit of food...
Prospective Sith Student: Mekel. H-he's the Sith... the one watching us from over there! He... h-he said this was how we would prove our worth... Prospective Sith Student: N-no, I can't! I must get into the academy! Mekel is the Sith, over there, watching us... he told us we have to do this! Prospective Sith Student: I... n-no, please, put it away! I... I can't accept any, Mekel said. He's the Sith... over there, watching us...
Prospective Sith Student: I must be strong! Mekel... will find me worthy... soon, I hope...

Speak to Mekel:

Dialog
Mekel: Is there something specific you wanted?
2. No, not really. 3. Nothing. Never mind.
Mekel: Then I trust you'll leave. I think another one of these fools is about to drop, and I don't want to miss it.

Otherwise:

1. Are you Mekel?
Mekel: And what if I am?
1. You have to do something about those men! They're dying! 2. Why are you making those men stand there?
Mekel: That is the whole point! Personally, I think it's wonderful fun... those fools actually think that if they stand there long enough, I'll let them become a Sith. Idiots. A Sith is not a bantha, all endurance and no brains. A Sith would fight for his life, no matter the odds. If these rotgrubs are as stupid as they seem, then they deserve their fate!
1. So this isn't a real test for them? 2. Then I demand you stop this at once! 3. Wouldn't it be more merciful just to kill them? 4. Sounds like fun.
Mekel: Oh, it's a test all right. It's a test to see if they're actually fool enough to die. If they don't, however, I certainly wouldn't admit them just for that accomplishment. Mekel: *You* demand? Why would I listen to you? I'll do as I please, and if watching these fools starve themselves amuses me, that's what I'll do. Mekel: Perhaps, but where does it say I should be merciful? There'd be no sport in it, anyhow. I want to see if they are really as foolish as I suspected. Mekel: Oh, it is. I wonder which one will be the last standing? Should I tell him then that his hopes are in vain, do you think?
Juhani: You should not toy with people's lives!
Carth: Oh, what a sweet guy. He should get the Sith congeniality medal.
Zaalbar: He victimizes them, but they are trying to join his vile kind. I'm not sure I would save them.
Jolee: Why not just shoot them where they stand? It would at least be more direct.
Canderous: That's what I would do. HK-47: Observation: Yes, very efficient. It is what I would do.
Jolee: Of course that's what *you* would do.
Mekel: Hmm. It is a bit boring standing out here all day, however. I think I'll go for some dinner... it will be fun to think of them while I gorge myself. They'll still be here in an hour or two, surely. I suggest you run along before I decide to make you part of the fun.

Once Mekel has left, you can try to persuade the Aqualish prospect to do likewise:

Prospective Sith Student: You... you were talking to Mekel! I saw you! Where did he go? D-did he... did he tell you I was worthy?!
Medium 1. [Persuade] Mekel is tricking you. He'll never let you into the academy.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith Student: [Success] What?! I... I've wasted all this time! How could I have been so... foolish! I could have died! I'll find another way in, I swear it! I'll show him! Thank you!
Always 2. [Persuade/Lie] He said you should go home. The Sith aren't for you.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith Student: [Success] N-no! Not after all this time! I... oh, this is terrible! I'll have to... go home...
Dialog
Carth: Somehow I think he'll get over it. Juhani: That was the right thing to do - turn him away from the Sith. Jolee: Hmm. Did you save the boy or just crush his dreams? I wonder...
Zaalbar: I don't know if any of these fools deserve second chances.
Prospective Sith Student: Mother will be so angry! Ooohh...
Always 3. [Persuade/Lie] Not yet. He said your final test is to attack that guard.
Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Prospective Sith Student: [Success] He... he did? The guard at the door? My final test? At last!
Dialog
Juhani: You should not manipulate people this way! You may fall! HK-47: Observation: Marvelous elimination of the enemy, master! I applaud you! Jolee: One really has to wonder if all Sith start off this gullible.
Zaalbar: Should I feel bad for him? I don't.
Prospective Sith Student: I... I'll do it! I'll prove my strength! AAAAAAHHHH!!

The guard will kill him. Otherwise, if you fail to persuade him, or don't even try, then he remains:

Dialog
Medium 1. [Persuade] Mekel is tricking you. He'll never let you into the academy. 4. No. I'll be going.
Prospective Sith Student: [Failure] You're wrong! I... must wait here to be worthy; you are... just trying to trick me so you will be chosen! Prospective Sith Student: I... suppose he'll come back. Well, then, I'll just have to wait!
1. But I -
Prospective Sith Student: Go now, and t-tempt me no more! I... will be strong!

If you try to speak to him again:

Prospective Sith Student: Just leave me alone. I have to get in the academy!

The prospect on the right can also be persuaded to leave:

Prospective Sith Student: You... talked to Mekel? Have I proved my worth? Did he say anything...?
Easy 1. [Persuade] Mekel is tricking you. He'll never let you into the academy. Medium 2. [Persuade/Lie] He said you should go home. The Sith aren't for you.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith Student: [Success] Oh... oh. All this... for nothing...
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith Student: [Success] Go... home...? I...
Dialog
Prospective Sith Student: [Failure] N-no! That can't be... you're wrong! I... can't have wasted my life... Prospective Sith Student: [Failure] I... don't believe you! You just want to... be chosen! But... it will be me! It will be... me...
3. No. I'll be going.
Prospective Sith Student: No, p-please... I... I cannot...

Regardless of the outcome he always collapses. The prospect in the center won't listen to you:

Prospective Sith Student: Leave... leave me be! I won't listen to your... manipulations. I... I *will* make it into the academy! Just... just a few hours longer... just a few hours, surely...

However, he too collapses if he sees you've acquired a Sith Medallion:

Prospective Sith Student: You... you have a medallion! How... how did you... unghhhh...

If you return after entering the academy, Mekel and these prospective Sith students are gone.

Enter the Sith Academy[edit]

The door to Sith Academy on the east side of the canyon is locked:

[This door is only open to members of the Sith Academy.]

You need to speak to the Sith Academy guard on the left:

Dialog
Sith Academy Guard: You are neither a Sith nor do you bear the medallion of a student of this facility. Please leave at once.
link=Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic}}/Force powers#Affect Mind 1. [Force Persuade] You will let me inside.
Sith Academy Guard: [Failure] I have been conditioned to resist mental persuasion, citizen. Please do not attempt that again.
Never 2. [Persuade] I need to get inside. I have been sent to speak with the Master of the Academy!
Sith Academy Guard: [Failure] No-one gets inside, citizen. Messages and deliveries must be relayed through official Sith channels only.
3. I'll be going.
Sith Academy Guard: On your way, citizen.

Although he cannot be persuaded to let you in, once you've spoken to him then Yuthura Ban appears in Dreshdae's cantina and you'll be given a couple of opportunities to acquire a Sith Medallion. You don't need to ask him how you become a Sith or about the medallion he mentioned, although if it's your first time then it's obviously helpful:

Dialog
1. How do I become a Sith, then?
Sith Academy Guard: You must be admitted to the academy. That decision must be made by a Sith who has already been accepted, here. The final decision, however, remains with Master Yuthura. I believe she is currently at the cantina if you wish to seek her out. Now go.
Journal Entry Added Enter the Sith Academy
In order to get inside the Sith academy in Dreshdae, you will have to be approved by one of the Sith as a worthy "hopeful". The one who does the deciding of which hopefuls make it is a Twi'lek Sith Master by the name of Yuthura Ban. She can reportedly be sometimes found in colony's cantina... you should check there.
Dialog
2. What's this medallion you mention?
Sith Academy Guard: It is the device given to one who has been accepted into the academy, but has not yet proved their worth as a student. If one of the Sith decides you are worthy, you will be given one... which you must then take to Yuthura Ban, who I believe is in the cantina. It is she who decides which hopefuls enter the academy.
Journal Entry Added Enter the Sith Academy
You have heard that when a Sith accepts a hopeful as worthy they are given a medallion... which must then be presented to Yuthura Ban, the Sith Master who decides which hopefuls enter the academy. She can sometimes be found in the colony's cantina. You should probably check to see if she has returned to the cantina.

Once you've spoken to him, you cannot return to Ebon Hawk or change party selection here until the Sith thugs and the Sith apprentice in Dreshdae from whom you can acquire a Sith Medallion no longer stand between you and the Ebon Hawk. If you return with a medallion:

Dialog
Sith Academy Guard: Greetings, student. I see you have the medallion that marks you as one of the chosen. I do not recognize you, however. Have you been accepted into the academy very recently?
1. Yes. Today, in fact. 2. That's none of your business, soldier. 3. No. I have been away for a while.
Sith Academy Guard: I see. And who might your friends be?
1. They are my slaves.
Sith Academy Guard: Ah. I trust you will be responsible for ensuring your slaves are not disruptive, then?
Carth: No more disruptive than our 'master' will be. Zaalbar: Grrr... I will not play the part of slave for long. Not even to pass this fool. Jolee: Hmph. Suddenly I'm a convincing slave, am I? Maybe you should have left me on the ship. HK-47: Commentary: Disruptive? What does he mean by that? I have never been disruptive, master.
Sith Academy Guard: What was that? Sith Academy Guard: If your animal acts up he will be destroyed. This would reflect badly on you, understand? Canderous: I always think we should leave you on the ship, old man. T3-M4: Beep! Beep! Boooop!
Carth: Oh, nothing. Jolee: Don't get smart-mouthed with me, young man. You're not too old to put over my knee. HK-47: Well, besides *that*.
2. They are none of your business.
Sith Academy Guard: So long as the Sith do not object to them, neither will I. They will be your responsibility, of course.
Jolee: Aren't we always? HK-47: Commentary: And if the Sith do object to us, master, I shall fill them full of new holes!
Sith Academy Guard: You will want to bring your medallion to Yuthura Ban. She is the one who brings all selected students into the academy for their training. I believe she can be located within the cantina here in the colony. I suggest you go to her while she is still there, student.
Journal Entry Added Enter the Sith Academy
You have acquired one of the Sith medallions. Presenting this to the Sith Master Yuthura Ban might prove that you are worthy of entering the Sith academy here on Korriban. She can be found in the colony's cantina.
Sith Academy Guard: You again? I told you to locate Yuthura Ban in the cantina. She is the only one who can bring new students into the academy.
Sith Academy Guard: You are a student at the academy. You may enter by the door.

After entering the academy, that's all he has to say to you.

Sith Medallion[edit]

Once you've spoken to the Sith Academy guard, the Twi'lek Sith Master Yuthura Ban appears Dreshdae's cantina. Although she can be persuaded to let you enter the academy, it's better to acquire a Sith Medallion first. Four Sith thugs also appear outside the Czerka Store, and their leader will challenge you as you approach:

Dialog
Sith Thug Leader: What's this? Looks like we found ourselves a bit of sport, my friends.
Mission: Ever notice how the Sith always act tough when they're in groups? Nothing but scum if you ask me!
Sith Thug: This is good: I want to celebrate my acceptance into the academy!
Sith Thug Leader: Me too. So how about it, chump? Ready to die? I'm eager to blow off some steam after those tests.
1. I don't want to pick a fight here.
Sith Thug Leader: But we do, isn't it obvious?

If you say you don't want to pick a fight here, you can move closer to the light side of the Force and receive experience for successfully persuading them to leave you alone:

Medium 1. [Persuade] I'm trying to be reasonable... but if you keep pushing me you'll regret it. Easy 3. [Persuade/Bribe] Here... here's 100 credits. Buy a drink to celebrate, instead.
Light Side Points Gained: +4
Sith Thug: [Success] Come on, man, let's just leave these losers alone.
Light Side Points Gained: +4
Sith Thug: [Success] Hey, a drink sounds pretty good...
Sith Thug Leader: Ahhh, alright. Let's go. Consider yourself lucky, stranger. Sith Thug Leader: Yeah, it does. Okay, you're off the hook. Let's go, guys.
Credits Lost: 100
Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 200 Persuaded Sith thugs to leave you alone

If you try to bribe them and fail, you still move closer to the light side of the Force; you don't if your response is more threatening, but no experience is received for successfully intimidating them:

2. Are you sure you want to die?
Dialog
Sith Thug: Hey! I think that was a threat!
Sith Thug Leader: That's pretty funny. Why should we be scared of you?
Medium 3. [Persuade] Because I'm not a snot-nosed punk who's biting off more than he can chew.
Dialog
Sith Thug: [Success] Uhhh... this one doesn't look like a pushover, you know. Maybe we should reconsider...
Sith Thug Leader: Yeah, okay. Just keep out of our way next time, you.

If you don't bother to persuade them, fail or use the Force, then they engage you in combat:

Dialog
3. Bring it on! 1. Take another step and I'll show you.
Sith Thug: Looks like we got us a winner!
Sith Thug Leader: You know it. Let's enjoy this!
Canderous: I know I will!
Medium 1. [Persuade] I'm trying to be reasonable... but if you keep pushing me you'll regret it. Easy 3. [Persuade/Bribe] Here... here's 100 credits. Buy a drink to celebrate, instead.
Sith Thug: [Failure] I hate whining! Let's shut them up! Light Side Points Gained: +4
Sith Thug Leader: [Failure] What do you say, guys? Do we want a drink or not?
Sith Thug Leader: I'm all for that! Come on! Sith Thug: I say we take the creds off their bodies. Then get a drink.
Sith Thug Leader: Hey! Good plan!
2. Because I've killed plenty of Sith before now. Run along, boys. Medium 3. [Persuade] Because I'm not a snot-nosed punk who's biting off more than he can chew.
Sith Thug: Hey! This one has killed Sith?! Sith Thug Leader: [Failure] Okay, I've heard just about enough out of you. Get them!
Sith Thug Leader: You've picked the wrong place to say that. We'll score big points for bringing in your body, I'm sure!
Canderous: Bring it on!
link=Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic}}/Force powers#Affect Mind 2. [Force Persuade] You don't want to fight me.
Sith Thug Leader: [Success] Yeah... I don't want to fight you.
Sith Thug: Hey! That... that's a Jedi trick!
Sith Thug Leader: What?! You... you won't get away with this!!

Killing them results in more experience received at level < 16, but if this is a persuasive light side character's first encounter with multiple Force users then it may be better to avoid it. They receive bonuses depending on your character level:

This medallion is clearly marked with the insignia of the Sith, and otherwise consists of a shiny black onyx-like material. It is unlikely to be very valuable, but is quite distinctive.

If you return to the room to the northwest then you'll see a lone Sith apprentice besetting two prospective Sith at its southwest exit:

Dialog
Sith Apprentice: Ha ha! Once you become a Sith, you can do anything! You can feel the power coursing through you! None of you fools can compare to me!!
Prospective Sith: P-please, friend... we are pleased at your success, but...
Sith Apprentice: Pleased?! You're jealous! You're jealous of my power! You think you deserve this medallion, don't you? Well, let's just see!!

He drains the life from the Rodian on the right before turning his attention to the Twi'lek female on the left:

Sith Apprentice: Ha ha ha! See?! I have the power to do anything!
Prospective Sith: Somebody help me!! Please!!
Sith Apprentice: Sniveling fool! Like you would ever belong beside me in the academy! I'd rather kill you now and save us the trouble!

He notices you:

Sith Apprentice: What's this? It seems I have an audience. Look, Jedi... just keep walking, unless you want some of the same. Sith Apprentice: What's this? It seems I have an audience. Look, human... just keep walking, unless you want some of the same.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Sorry, but I'm not going to let you kill that woman.
2. Yeah? Let's see how tough you are, then. Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. Do what you want. It has nothing to do with me.
Sith Apprentice: You can't stop me! You first, human, and then she dies!! Sith Apprentice: I am a Sith, now! My power is supreme! Prepare to die, ha ha!! Sith Apprentice: Yeah? Well I just decided that Jedi make much better sport than anyone else here. Oh, this should be entertaining. Sith Apprentice: Oh, yeah? Well I just decided I don't need any witnesses. You look like a fun challenge, anyway, so this should be interesting!

The surviving prospect runs away as the apprentice engages in combat. At character level > 14:

These Sith remain in Dreshdae until you're taken to the Tomb of Naga Sadow. Once you've acquired a medallion, if you speak to the prospective Sith male in the Czerka Store and the prospective Sith Twi'lek female by the exit from Dreshdae before entering the academy:

Dialog
Prospective Sith: Hey! You've got one of the medallions! Prospective Sith: You... you have a medallion!
3. It's mine and you're not getting it. 4. Get out of my way. 5. I'll be on my way.
Prospective Sith: If I thought I could take it... ahhh, no, never mind. Just go on and quit lording it over me, will you? Prospective Sith: I doubt I could take it from you if I tried. Good luck in your training, I suppose. Prospective Sith: Oh... uh, yes of course. Prospective Sith: Oh... yes. Sorry. Prospective Sith: May the Force serve you well.

Otherwise, you can ask what that means:

Dialog
1. So? What does that mean?
Prospective Sith: What does that mean? It means that you've been accepted into the academy. All you have to do is bring that to Yuthura Ban in the cantina. Didn't the Sith who gave you that tell you? Prospective Sith: Why would you ask that? The Sith who gave you that must have mentioned that it represented your acceptance. All you have to do is bring it to Yuthura Ban at the cantina and you're in!

You have acquired one of the Sith medallions. Presenting this to the Sith Master Yuthura Ban might prove that you are worthy of entering the Sith academy here on Korriban. She can be found in the colony's cantina.
Dialog
2. That's right. Got a problem with that?
Prospective Sith: No. You're very lucky, that's all I meant. Prospective Sith: N-no, of course not! I wish I was as lucky as you, that's all.
1. So? What does that mean? 2. That's right. Got a problem with that?
Prospective Sith: Got any advice for someone who's trying to be worthy of admittance? Prospective Sith: Might you have any advice for me? How did you obtain it?
1. Forget it. You'll never be worthy. 2. You just have to keep trying, I guess.
Prospective Sith: Oh really? What do you know, anyway? Get away from me. Prospective Sith: I see. Well, keep your secrets to yourself, then. I'll find a way. Prospective Sith: Hmph. Fine. Keep your secrets to yourself. See if I care. Prospective Sith: So you're not going to tell me. *sigh* I suppose I really didn't expect you to.

Say you didn't get it in the normal way for a chance to alter your alignment:

Dialog
3. Let's just say I didn't get this in the normal way.
Prospective Sith: Oh? So... so there's some secret to it after all? I *knew* it! Please, please tell me what I have to do! I'll do anything! Prospective Sith: So there *is* a secret to it. I knew there had to be! Would you tell me what it is? I'll do anything to know!
Hard 1. [Persuade] You don't want to go through the academy. Trust me. Go home.
Carth: Well, too bad that's exactly where we're headed. Carth: Too bad that's exactly where we're headed.
Prospective Sith: [Failure] You just want one less competitor, right? Well, we'll see about that. Prospective Sith: [Failure] My family couldn't talk me out of this, and you sure aren't going to. Thanks anyway.
Medium 2. [Persuade/Lie] You have to attack one of the Sith for it.
Prospective Sith: [Failure] That would be suicide. Trying to kill off the competition, huh? 'Thanks' for the tip. Prospective Sith: [Failure] That sounds like it would be suicide. You are obviously lying to me.
Hard 3. [Persuade/Lie] You must show your bravery by jumping in the chasm.
Jolee: If a Sith told you to go jump off a cliff, would you? Juhani: You should not do this. Taking advantage, even of a Sith, leads to the dark side.
Prospective Sith: [Failure] Right. Do I look like I was born yesterday? Get lost. Prospective Sith: [Failure] Jump in the chasm? Do I look like an idiot? No thanks.
5. Forget it. I'll be going, now.
Prospective Sith: Hmph. Fine. Keep your secrets to yourself. See if I care. Prospective Sith: So you're not going to tell me. *sigh* I suppose I really didn't expect you to.

If you speak again:

Prospective Sith: Look, you've already got your ticket into the academy... there's no need to gloat, is there? Prospective Sith: So you're already part of the academy. I am unimpressed.

You need to successfully persuade them to leave:

Hard 1. [Persuade] You don't want to go through the academy. Trust me. Go home.
Carth: Well, too bad that's exactly where we're headed. Carth: Too bad that's exactly where we're headed.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith: [Success] I... but, ugh... I guess you're right. If I can't even figure this out, what hope do I have? *sigh* I guess this is for the best. Maybe it's time to take up dew farming.
Light Side Points Gained: +2
Prospective Sith: [Success] I... but... oh, you're right. It's hopeless. *sigh* I... I guess I should go home. Perhaps I could get a job at the droid shop...
Hard 3. [Persuade/Lie] You must show your bravery by jumping in the chasm.
Jolee: If a Sith told you to go jump off a cliff, would you? Juhani: You should not do this. Taking advantage, even of a Sith, leads to the dark side.
Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Prospective Sith: [Success] R-really? That... that sounds like it's, heh, very dangerous. You survived it, though... maybe it isn't so bad...
Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Prospective Sith: [Success] R-really? *gulp!* That... that sounds like it's very dangerous. You survived it, though... maybe it isn't so bad...
Medium 2. [Persuade/Lie] You have to attack one of the Sith for it.
Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Prospective Sith: [Success] That doesn't really sound so easy. I guess it's to prove how brave you are, right? They won't actually kill you? Hm. I guess I'll have to find out...
Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Prospective Sith: [Success] Oh. I'm not much of a combatant... but I guess you have to be brave if you're going to get into the Sith, right? I'll... have to think about it.
Always 4. [Persuade] Take it from one of the other students, of course.
Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Prospective Sith: [Success] Hey! Why didn't I think of that? Hmmm... you look a bit too tough for me. I'll go and find someone a bit easier. Thanks a lot!
Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Prospective Sith: [Success] Hmm... I suppose that might work. A newly accepted student wouldn't have all the powers of the other Sith, would they? Thank you!

Otherwise, if you can still speak to them after entering the academy:

Prospective Sith: Uhh... greetings. You wouldn't happen to be looking for a prospect for the academy, would you? Prospective Sith: You... are one of the Sith from the academy, yes? Would you happen to be looking for new prospects?

There should be nothing left to do but present the medallion to Yuthura Ban.

Yuthura Ban[edit]

The Twi'lek Sith Master Yuthura Ban appears in the northeast corner of Dreshdae's Cantina. You have to speak to her to enter the Sith academy:

Dialog
Yuthura Ban: Is there something you need, Jedi? Make it good, for I have little patience.
1. Why did you call me Jedi? 2. So you know what I am.
Yuthura Ban: You think me a fool? You think I do not recognize a lightsaber when I see it? Yuthura Ban: You think me a fool? You think I do not recognize robes of the order when I see them?
Yuthura Ban: You are far from the first Jedi who has come here, after all, willing to abandon that decrepit order of yours.

Otherwise:

Yuthura Ban: Is there something you need, human? Make it good, for I have little patience.
4. Can I ask you some questions?
Yuthura Ban: I am sure there are plenty of others here who would answer your questions. I am quite busy. So if there is nothing else...?
3. Who are you? 1. I would like to know who you are. 3. Are you Yuthura Ban?
Yuthura Ban: Who am I? You must not have been on Korriban for very long. Either that or you have been feeling your way about blindly. Luckily for you, I am in a charitable mood. I am Yuthura Ban, second only to Master Uthar of the Sith academy here in Dreshdae. I am the one who decides which few of the many hopefuls who travel here to train actually become a Sith. Why? Is it your desire to enter the academy? Is that why you are here? Yuthura Ban: I am. Obviously you have been told of me. Is it your desire, then, to train at the academy? Do you wish to become a Sith, human?
5. I'll be on my way. 2. Never mind. I'll go.
Yuthura Ban: As you wish.
Journal Entry Added Enter the Sith Academy
In order to get inside the Sith academy in Dreshdae, you will have to be approved by one of the Sith as a worthy "hopeful". The one who does the deciding of which hopefuls make it is a Twi'lek Sith Master by the name of Yuthura Ban. She can reportedly be sometimes found in colony's cantina... you should check there.

After confirming who she is you can ask her about joining the Sith, or do so after failing to persuade her and speaking after acquiring a Sith Medallion:

Dialog
Yuthura Ban: You again? What do you wish, now? Yuthura Ban: Can you not see that I am busy, human? Ahhh... I see you have a medallion. Where did you get it?
1. I want to join the Sith. 2. I have this medallion...
Yuthura Ban: So I see, from the medallion you carry. How curious that you possess one. Where did you get it? Yuthura Ban: So I see. How curious that you should come to possess such a thing. Where did you get it?
3. Why do you want to know?
Yuthura Ban: Do not be insolent, human. I asked you a direct question, and I will not be trifled with. Now... where did you get this medallion?
1. Err... I took it from another student, actually. Easy 2. [Persuade/Lie] One of the other Sith accepted me into the academy.
Yuthura Ban: I see. How very enterprising of you, though that is not the normal way that we select our students for the academy. Yuthura Ban: [Failure] You think to lie to me, do you? I would suspect you stole this and killed the owner. Very enterprising of you, I must admit.
Yuthura Ban: We Sith do encourage such independent thinking. You may even be a suitable candidate to join us. That is what you wish, I take it? To become a Sith?
1. Why would I want to join the Sith? 2. Maybe. I haven't given it much thought.
Yuthura Ban: *chuckle* An interesting question, and not one I hear often. For most the benefits of becoming a Sith are quite obvious. Yuthura Ban: And yet here you are on little Korriban, just by accident? I find it hard to believe. If it amuses you, however, I'll play along.
Yuthura Ban: We wield ultimate power, my friend. To be a Sith is to taste freedom and to know victory. Nothing is as glorious as bending the Force to your will.
1. A lot of the hopefuls here end up dead. That doesn't seem glorious.
Yuthura Ban: We make no apologies for the weak. If you cannot clench your fist and know when the moment comes to strike, there is no place for you amongst us. Of those who come to train, those who are weak return home. If they are both weak and foolish, they die... but it was their choice to come.
2. And what about the Jedi?
Yuthura Ban: Hide-bound relics who burden themselves with tradition and with the protection of the weak and ungrateful. They are pitiful and misguided. Why would you take a gift as glorious as the Force and squander it? Weaken yourself deliberately and shackle yourself to outdated mores? Our gift has made us superior. It is our rightful place to rule. How can any deny that? Yet the Jedi do so... and call us 'evil' because we do not.
1. You don't consider yourself evil?
Yuthura Ban: Is the sarkath beast who dominates his jungle evil? The tuk'ata who leaps on the squellbug for the kill? These are things of nature, of the universe. We are no different from this. The Force is part of the universe, part of the same laws. We were gifted to set us above the rest... to deny nature is foolish.
3. But you serve the dark side of the Force, don't you?
Yuthura Ban: It is the Jedi who serve the Force... trying to discern its wishes like frightened old men staring at the stars. The Force serves *us*. We shape it to our will. We are its master. The Jedi deny their darkness, but we revel in it, we allow it to fuel our strength.
1. But the dark side is evil, it corrupts...
Yuthura Ban: 'Corruption' is a word the pitiful use to describe the natural longing for power that they deny. 'Evil' is a word trumpeted by the weak to ease their heart. It is true that the Force exacts a physical toll on some... but not a single one of them has ever regretted it. Anything else you hear is propaganda.
4. And where does Darth Malak fit into all this?
Yuthura Ban: You know the name? Malak is the strongest of us, and the strongest always rules... at least until one who is stronger can take it from him. That is our way: survival of the fittest. You are always on guard, always lean for the kill. We promote it, for through this the Sith are stronger.
1. You kill each other?
Yuthura Ban: If a Sith has proven to be weak... and if the time is right. The Force rewards the cunning and the mighty. Step up to the challenge if you dare... or turn tail and run.

You can finish asking questions at any time with the following:

4. I see. About joining you...
Yuthura Ban: You've heard enough, have you? *chuckle* So what is it to be? Are you here to be a Sith or not?
3. Never mind... I have to go.
Yuthura Ban: Oh? That is truly a first. Do as you wish, then, human. I'll not stop you.

Otherwise, you can get to the point by being more adamant about (not) joining the Sith when you first speak to her, or successfully lying to her about how you acquired a medallion (which is easily done):

Dialog
3. No! I would never join the Sith! 1. No, I'm not interested. 4. Yes, that's exactly why I'm here. Let me join you. 2. Yes. I want to join the Sith. Easy 2. [Persuade/Lie] One of the other Sith accepted me into the academy.
Yuthura Ban: No? Why might that be? There is something... odd about you, human, that I cannot place... Yuthura Ban: Ahhh, so you are just another hopeful after all. Or are you? There is something odd about you that I cannot place... Yuthura Ban: [Success] Oh? Very well. You do seem a fit candidate, though there is... something odd about you I cannot place...
Yuthura Ban: Obviously you are a Jedi. One who is very strong in the Force, it seems. So were you part of the order for very long? Did they train you? Yuthura Ban: I sense... that you are very strong in the Force. That you have already honed some of your abilities. Jedi training, is it?
1. No, I don't know what you're talking about. 2. Yes, but only very little. 3. Yes. I'm a fallen Jedi, if you must know. 4. What difference does it make?
Yuthura Ban: *chuckle* As you wish. Play your little game, Jedi, if you must. Either way, I sense an intriguing amount of power within you. Yuthura Ban: *chuckle* As you wish. Keep your little secrets, human, if you must. Either way, I sense an intriguing amount of power within you. Yuthura Ban: As I thought. How interesting that they would let one with such power out of their grasp. Or are you here to spy on us? For all the good it would do. Yuthura Ban: A Padawan, perhaps, though it makes little difference. I sense enough raw power within you to... well, we shall see. Yuthura Ban: Perhaps none. Perhaps all the difference in the world. Either way, you possess enough raw power to intrigue me greatly.
Yuthura Ban: With that kind of power, you could become a great Sith. Perhaps... if I let you. Does that interest you?
1. No. It doesn't.
Yuthura Ban: A pity. Here I hadn't even decided, yet. Yuthura Ban: A pity. And here you were already given the medallion and everything.
Yuthura Ban: Well, human... should you change your mind, you know where to come.

Otherwise, if you don't have a medallion then using the Force won't persuade her to accept you into the academy, and you may fail if you use skill:

Dialog
link=Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic}}/Force powers#Affect Mind 2. [Force Persuade] Yes. You want to accept me into the academy.
Yuthura Ban: [Failure] *chuckle* You must not think much of Sith masters to try that little trick. I won't hold it against you, however... it shows initiative. But I do desire a real answer to my question... does it interest you?
Hard 3. [Persuade/Lie] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith. Medium 3. [Persuade/Lie] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith. Easy 4. [Persuade] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith.
Yuthura Ban: [Failure] I see. Somehow, however, I am unconvinced. No, my friend... I'll not be the one to bring you into our academy. If one of the other Sith accept you and give you a medallion, then perhaps. But otherwise... not today. Run along now.
Journal Entry Added Enter the Sith Academy
You have spoken to the Sith Master Yuthura Ban, but she is not yet convinced that you are worthy to allow into the academy. She did mention that if one of the other Sith accepted you and gave you a medallion she might change her mind.

If you return to say you want to join the Sith before acquiring a medallion:

Yuthura Ban: But I have already told you your answer, human. Do not bother me further, or I shall become irritated.

Otherwise, it's easier to lie if your alignment is already dark (< 40), but if this is the case then it's better not to do so:

Hard 3. [Persuade/Lie] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith. Medium 3. [Persuade/Lie] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith. Easy 4. [Persuade] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith.
Yuthura Ban: [Success] Ah, good. Exactly the sort of answer I was hoping for. Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Yuthura Ban: [Success] Ah, good. Exactly the sort of answer I was hoping for.

She doesn't need persuading if you have a medallion:

Dialog
2. [Lie] Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith. 3. Yes, it does. I wish to become a Sith.
Yuthura Ban: Ah, good. Exactly the sort of answer I was hoping for. Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Yuthura Ban: Ah, good. Exactly the sort of answer I was hoping for.

If you failed to persuade her upon first speaking then upon your return with a medallion it's quickest to tell her you have it rather than that you want to join the Sith:

2. I have this medallion...
Yuthura Ban: So one of the others accepted you, even after I did not? You are lucky, human, for I am in a forgiving mood.
Yuthura Ban: I will take you to the academy and we shall see if you are ready to join the ranks of the Sith.
Yuthura Ban: I have only one other question. These... companions of yours? They will not be coming with you, I presume?
1. They are slaves. Don't worry about them.
Jolee: My hearing's not so good. I'm just pleased my nice master doesn't beat me so much anymore, yes sir. Juhani: I... yes -- we are only servants to the... master. HK-47: Statement: Just a simple droid, here, ma'am. Nothing to see. Move along.
Yuthura Ban: There is... something odd about this servant of yours... No matter. Make sure they don't disturb your training or cause trouble. You are responsible for them. Now... are you ready to go to the academy? Yuthura Ban: I see. Fair enough, so long as they do not disturb your training or cause any trouble. Are you ready to go to the academy, then?
