Map of the north Upper City

Upper City South[edit]

You enter from the Upper City South in the southeast corner of the Upper City North. It's patrolled by Sith troopers and populated with a couple of protocol droids and Taris citizens like the men in the Upper City South, but there are also another Taris citizen, a couple of Taris merchants, and a child who may comment, but cannot be engaged in dialog:

Taris Citizen
I hear there's a gang war between the Hidden Beks and the Black Vulkars raging in the lower city.
I hear the crime lord Davik has a ship that can break through the Sith blockade.
That new mercenary working for Davik - I heard he's a Mandalorian! I wonder if he fought in the Mandalore Wars?
I'm just an ordinary citizen minding his own business. Really... you Sith don't have to worry about me.
Hey - didn't you just win the big swoop bike race in the Lower City? Yes, it was you, I'm sure! That race was amazing!
Have you got your tickets for Bendak Starkiller's return to the duel ring? I hear it's going to be an illegal death match!
Check this out... we've got a real live celebrity here. The Mysterious Stranger mixing with the common folk!
Taris Merchant
The Sith wouldn't be so bad if they'd let us leave the planet. This quarantine is killing my business!
I'm in the wrong business... Davik's got a piece of everyone's action. I should have been a crime lord, too! Ha-ha!
Huh... if the Sith cared anything about us, they'd stop that gang war in the Lower City.
My "protection" costs have doubled in the last week. Ever since that Mandalorian started working for the Exchange, Davik's been cracking down on all his Underworld operations.
Please... don't hurt me! I'm just a simple merchant. I... I don't want anything to do with you Sith. Please, just leave me alone.
Have you got your tickets for Bendak Starkiller's return to the duel ring? I hear it's going to be an illegal death match!
You beat Bendak Starkiller! Nobody's ever beaten Bendak! Ah, I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!
Child
Is you one of the Sith? My daddy says the Sith are nothing but bullies. You don't look like a bully.
My Momma says I have to stay out of the Lower City. That's where bad people live.
You ever seen a swoop bike? I seen them at the races sometimes. They go fast and make lots of noise!
You're one of them Sith, ain't you? My mommy says I'm not supposed to talk to you.

Search for Bastila[edit]

Apartments[edit]

The exit to the North Apartments is directly opposite the entrance from the Upper City South, to the north (as you'd expect). Whether you've come here directly or after being invited to a party by Sarna or Yun Genda in the Upper City Cantina, this should be your first destination upon arrival in the Upper City North.

After opening the Upper City elevator to access the Lower City, an Ithorian and a taunting boy and girl spawn here. As you approach them, the Ithorian speaks to you, giving you a chance to receive a small amount of experience and move closer to the light side of the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: Please, human – I am injured and in need of assistance. These human children keep hitting and kicking me. I cannot reason with them, but if I fight back I could be arrested.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Get out of here you goggle-eyed freak! You're too ugly for the Upper City!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Girl: Yeah – go back where you came from! We don't want your kind up here!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: Unh! Please – human! Help me! Maybe these offspring of your species will listen to you.

The Ithorian is saved if you get involved, or Mission, Bastila or Carth do so if you don't:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Sorry – I don't want to get involved!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Yeah – why would a human want to help you, freak?

Mission has the most robust response:

KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey! You aren't going to just let them keep hurting him, are ya?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: You're a freak, too! Why don't you get outta here, ya freaks!!
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: Away with you children! RRAWWWWRR!! KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: You want me to come over there and kick your little butts?! That's it… now you're in for it!!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Ahh!! Run for it!

In her absence, Bastila and Carth can get involved:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I will not stand here and let that poor man be stoned! You there, children… leave him alone! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Hey, aren't you...? Hey, hey stop that, you kids! Leave him alone! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Hey – you kids! Leave the Ithorian alone!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Girl: Why do you care what happens to some scummy alien? He's just a freak!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Yeah – he isn't even supposed to be in the Upper City!
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. Just because he's different doesn't give you the right to attack him!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine – I don't want to get involved. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Get out of here you punks or you'll be the ones in pain!
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Well I will. You children get away… just because he is different does not give you the right to attack him! KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, I will. You kids... get lost before I kick your sorry butts! Now, now beat it!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Come on – let's go. I don't want to listen to this alien lover anymore! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Ahh!! Run for it!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: Among my people many believe all the Sith are cruel and heartless, but I see now that is not true.

Otherwise, you can move closer to the light side of the Force at the cost of a Medpac:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: Thank you, human. I was returning from a visit with a work associate when those child humans attacked me and chased me through the streets.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You should be okay now. I'm glad I could help. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +4
2. You look hurt. Here, I've got a medpac. Let me help you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you have any kind of reward for me helping you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: You are too kind, human. I thank you for your generosity. Most of your kind here on Taris care little for aliens like myself. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: I am sorry, human. I wish I had a reward to give you to show my appreciation for your intervention, but I have no suitable reward on my person.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ithorian: Once more, thank you for saving me from those human children. I must take leave of you now. My life mate will be wondering where I am.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 60 Drove away kids taunting the Ithorian

If no one gets involved, the boy kills the Ithorian before running away:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Sorry – I don't want to get involved! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine – I don't want to get involved.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Yeah – why would a human want to help you, freak?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Boy: Take that you alien scum!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Taunting Girl: Wow! You got him good that time! Hey - I think he's dead! Let's get out of here!

Lower City[edit]

Once you have Sith Armor from the North Apartments, travel to the west end of the Upper City North and turn north at the T-junction (being sure to use the south side of the walkway if you wish to avoid the drunk men on the north side). As you turn right around a hairpin bend, at its apex you'll see the elevator leading down to the Lower City in the east wall, with a Sith Guard to the right. If you try to approach it or speak to him:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: This elevator is off limits. Only Sith patrols and those with proper authorization are allowed into the Lower City. It's obvious from the way you're dressed that you're not one of the Sith patrols, so unless you have the authorization papers you must move along!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Where can I get authorization papers?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: If you were supposed to have them you'd know where to get them. Now quit wasting my time and move along.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Can I ask you some questions? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll be going now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: I'm not here to give you information! I work for the Sith, not the Taris tourist board! Now just move along, unless you have the proper authorization papers. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: Move along then.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: *whispers* We're going to need some kind of disguise if we want to get past this guy.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Search for Bastila
Your efforts to search for Bastila in the lower regions of Taris have hit a snag. The Sith guard at the elevator down to the Lower City won't let you past without a Sith uniform or the proper authorization papers.
Security Elevator Unlock 100 (80) Bash Resist - Vitality -

The elevator remains locked until someone equips Sith Armor and you approach or speak to the Sith guard again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: Another patrol heading down to the Lower City, eh? Good luck... I've heard it's pretty rough down there. There's a big swoop gang war going on, you know. You better watch yourself: those gangs will take a shot at anyone – even us! It's too bad we don't have the manpower to just sweep those slums clean.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Search for Bastila
Your Sith disguise has fooled the guard at the Upper City elevator, giving you access to the Lower City. Hopefully it will be just as easy to gain access to the Undercity so you can search for signs of Bastila's crashed escape pod.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 350 Fooled guard at Upper City elevator
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 50 Opened Upper City elevator

Sith Armor needs to remain equipped until you've taken the elevator to the Lower City. Aside from allowing access to the Lower City, opening the elevator door also spawns the Ithorian being taunted by a boy and a girl at the entrance to the North Apartments. After trading the Sith Armor for papers with Gadon Thek below, those need to be presented instead:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I've got my authorization papers right here. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: Look, you've already shown me your authorization so you can go on down to the Lower City anytime you want. You don't have to keep bothering me. Just be careful down there. Those swoop gangs will take a shot at anybody. Even our Sith patrols have come under fire!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Guard: Well why didn't you say so? Hmmm… everything seems to be in order. Okay, I guess you can go down to the Lower City. Just be careful down there. Those swoop gangs will take a shot at anybody. Even our Sith patrols have come under fire!

Droids by Janice[edit]

Droids by Janice is also at the west end of the Upper City North (be sure to use the south side of the walkway from the east end if you wish to avoid the drunk men on the north side). Turn south at the T-junction and open the door labeled Droid Shop to enter. Three incomplete droids are in bays in the south wall, while Janice Nall, a female Twi'lek, stands in a kiosk in the west wall with two utility droids to the left.

There's no need to come here until you've completed the search for Bastila, but buying T3-H8 gives you a chance to receive some experience, and perhaps receive a few more credits and move closer to the dark side of the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: A customer? Come in, come in. Janice Nall at your service. Welcome to my droid and droid supply shop. Always good to see a new face – customers are hard to come by. A lot of the Taris citizens won't even come in here; they refuse to shop at a store owned by a Twi'lek.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do they have against Twi'leks? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'd like to see what you have in stock.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: They don't like aliens much here in Upper Taris. They tolerate us Twi'leks, but they'd rather see us as dancers in the cantina than successful business owners.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: You'd think people would be a little more tolerant of others in this day and age. *sigh* I guess stupidity and ignorance will never go out of style.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: You'll see a few aliens around, but most of the non-humans stick to the Lower City. I've learned not to dwell on it. though. I try to stay focused on running my store.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: My selection is a bit limited right now – the Sith confiscated all my assault droids. But I've got a utility droid you might find interesting.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Utility droids? What do they do?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: What don't they do? They're great at making vehicle repairs, for starters. Pretty handy to have in a fight – small, but tough with a surprising amount of firepower. And there's no better code breaker or security system slicer around… not that I'd ever condone you doing anything illegal, of course.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Let me see your droids.

You can also ask her to let you see what she's got for sale, in her inventory:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Back again, I see. Well, I've never turned a potential customer away yet. You interested in seeing what I have in stock? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Oh... hello. Uh... welcome to my shop. Of course the Sith are always welcome here. Would you like to see my inventory?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Let me see what you've got for sale. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Let me see what you have for sale.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: You want to see my inventory, or are you here to buy a utility droid? My prices are very reasonable, and all my droids come with a money back guarantee.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Let me see your inventory. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Of course. Right away, your Sithness.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: My inventory is a bit limited because of the quarantine, but if you need anything to do with droids or computers this is still the place to shop.
Janice Nall

You can ask her some questions about Taris as well, although this isn't necessary:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask you some questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Questions? But... I don't know anything. If I did, I'd tell you right away. I've got no secrets from the Sith.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Have you heard the news? Bendak Starkiller is coming out of retirement to fight in a death match. Everybody's trying to get tickets to see it. I've never understood why people always want to watch each other get killed. Droids don't think that way. Maybe that's why I like them better than people. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: I heard Bendak Starkiller finally met his match. I can't say I'm surprised - he was getting on in years. People start to lose their edge as they get older. That's the nice thing about droids. A yearly maintenance check and a few replacement parts here and there and they can last forever.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I want to ask you some questions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask you more some more questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: I don't know if I can help you with your questions – I don't get out much. I prefer spending time with my droids to mingling with the Taris citizens. But I'll try to help you out.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you know anything about those escape pods that crashed here on Taris?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: People are saying a few of the pods crashed down in the Undercity. I blame it on human error – a droid wouldn't lose control of the ship like that. Anything else?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I was wondering how you feel about the Sith?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: I don't think much of them since they came and seized most of my droids. I guess they were afraid of someone using my droids against them. Or maybe they wanted to use my droids for themselves. There's no such thing as a bad droid, but sometimes they fall in with bad owners.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I need some general information on Taris.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Well, I don't know exactly what to tell you. Stick to the Upper City and you should be okay, as long as you don't do anything foolish to draw the attention of the Sith. Some of the Upper City citizens are biased against aliens – makes it tough for me to run my store – but a human like you shouldn't run into any problems. I wouldn't recommend going down into the Lower City unless you have business with Davik or something like that. The place is overrun with swoop gangs.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Swoop gangs? What can you tell me about them?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: They're nothing but a bunch of thugs! Things didn't used to be so bad when the Hidden Beks were in charge – I even sold some droids to them. But now the Black Vulkar gang is making a bid for control of the Lower City. The place has become a war zone. Even some of Davik's people are getting killed off.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What do you know about Davik?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Davik Kang's a dangerous man. If it's illegal on Taris, he's got a hand in it. And I heard he's a member of the Exchange – you know, the intergalactic crime syndicate. I'd stay out of Davik's business if I were you. If you cross Davik you'll learn that his men are even more dangerous than the swoop gangs.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'll be going now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll be going now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Maybe I'll see you around later. Don't forget my store motto: if you need droid parts, Janice Nall is your gal! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Oh... alright then. Goodbye. Please... please do come again. I... I mean it. Really. I've got nothing against you Sith.

Purchasing a Droid[edit]

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: I've only got two droids left: a re-built T3-H8 unit for 50 credits and a top-of-the-line T3-M4 model with all the options. But he's not for sale. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: All I've got left is this T3-M4 unit. Excellent codebreaker. Fantastic security, programming and droid repair skills. A good amount of firepower, too.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about that top-of-the-line T3-M4 droid.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: The T3-M4 is the best utility droid ever built: top-notch codebreaker; expert security, programming and droid repair skills. He's even got the firepower to be handy in battle.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: This little guy is the absolute top of the line… but he's not for sale. He's a custom job I'm holding for a very special buyer. Sorry.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Purchasing a Droid
You're interested in purchasing a T3-M4 droid, but unfortunately it's being held for another buyer. There is nothing you can do about it for now.

You can only buy T3-H8 if you have 50 credits and haven't already bought T3-M4:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'll take the T3-H8 unit. Here's 50 credits. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't have 50 credits.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: You know a bargain when you see one. This little guy's as reliable as used droids get. I did the reconditioning on him myself! Don't worry... he'll follow you everywhere! Is there anything else you need? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Well, I'm not going to drop the price on that model. At 50 credits it's already a bargain. If you can't afford it, you can't afford it.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 50 KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 110 Bought T3-H8 utility droid

Beep. Click. Whirr. Grind. Beep.

As T3-H8 crosses the threshold of the shop as you leave, it explodes. Naturally, you return to Janice to get a refund:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Welcome back to my shop. Hey – where's that little T3-H8 unit I sold you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. It blew up. I came to get my money back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. That thing was a piece of junk! You ripped me off!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: It blew up? Huh, I thought I'd taken care of that little cross-wiring problem. Well, don't worry – I run an honest business here. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Now just settle down. There's no need to get upset – I run an honest business here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: I don't have to give you a refund, but I don't want to lose a customer. Here... have your 50 credits back. No hard feelings, right?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No hard feelings. Medium 2. [Persuade] I think you should give me something extra for all the trouble.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Glad to hear you're being reasonable. You have to understand that I'm trying to run a business here. Now, is there anything else you need? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: [Failure] What? I offer you a full refund and you want more? Business is tough enough as it is... you should be glad I'm giving you a refund at all!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine... just give me the 50 credits.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Glad to hear it. I can't afford to make my customers unhappy... business is tough enough as it is. So, anything else you need?
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 50

She can be persuaded to give something extra, although if you fail then you can move closer to the dark side of the Force by threatening her instead:

Medium 2. [Persuade] I think you should give me something extra for all the trouble. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. [Persuade] Maybe I'll just start telling people not to shop here. You'll be ruined!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: [Success] Well... I guess I did cause you some inconvenience. And I don't want to get a reputation for poor customer service... business is tough enough as it is. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: [Success] No! Don't do that. I... I can't afford that kind of hit to my business. We can reach some kind of compromise here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Janice Nall: Here's 75 credits... I think that's more than fair. Now, is there anything else I can do for you?
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Received: 75

Drunk men[edit]

When traveling between the east and west ends of the Upper City North, you'll notice a multicultural trio of drunk men on the north side of the walkway. You can use the south side of the walkway to avoid them, but approaching them gives you a chance to move closer to the light or dark side of the Force (and in the latter case receive a small number of credits), unless someone is equipping Sith Armor:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Woo, hey, look at this... it's the Shith! [hic] Oh no, I'm sho shcared! Hoo hoo hoo.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Careful... don't do anything shtupid! [hic] We don't want no trouble with the Shith. [hic]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Uh... yeah. You're right. [hic] Shorry about this, Shithy. [hic] Come on fellas, let's go.

They all run off to the east and disappear to the south. Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: What is thish planet coming to, huh? [hic] Shlummies walkin' around the Upper City!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Shouldn't you go back to the Lower Cities where you belong, shlummie?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, this is rich.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Yeah, like he said, these streets are for the Upper City citizens! You better get out of our way if you know what's good for you!
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. [Persuade] Hey, guys, we can all be friends here. Let me buy you a drink.
Always 2. [Persuade] You'd better think twice about what you're doing. This might be more than you can handle.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: [Success] a drink? Hey – for a shlummie you ain't so bad! Come on boys – this shlummie's buying the next round! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: [Success] Uh… c'mon, fellas. This shlummie ain't worth the bother.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: No way! Forget it! No more drinksh! We're late enough as it is. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Uh… yeah. I guess you're right. Maybe next time, shlummie. [hic] Come on fellas, let's go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Uh… yeah. I guess you're right. Maybe next time, shlummie. [hic] Come on fellas, let's go.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 60 Avoided fight with drunk men

They all wander to the east and stop at the junction. If you speak to them again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: [The drunk waves sheepishly at you, but doesn't speak. He seems to be having trouble standing.]

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. If you're trying to pick a fight, you've got one!
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Hey, this shlummie's got a mouth!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Oh, great. We're fighting the drunks, are we? Man, do they stink.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: You talk big, shlummie! Maybe you should show us a little more reshpect!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Drunk Man: Time to teach you a lesson, shlummie! [hic] Maybe you'll think twice about coming up into our turf!

Gorton Colu[edit]

Gorton Colu stands at the northwest corner of the T-junction at the west end of the Upper City North, with an audience of a couple of Taris citizens:

Listen to me, people! There is a terrible scourge sweeping our planet! Heed my warning, before it is too late!
The evil walks among us! The enemy is here! We must act now before we are overrun with the vermin invaders!
A plague spreads through our streets! We cannot sit idly by while this pox infects our society!
Taris Citizen
This crazy street preacher keeps on about war and days of reckoning and the Sith just might lock him away.
This guy's just stirring up trouble! Sure, there's a lot of aliens on Taris, but most of them stick to the Lower City.
I'm no alien-lover, but I don't want to see them all killed! This kook's way out of line.
You Sith should shut this guy up. I think he's violently dangerous. Just listen to him!

You can ignore him, although if you want to find out what he's talking about then it can get particularly heated if Zaalbar and Mission are present:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Greetings, my Sith friends. Rest assured, I have all the proper permits to be here spreading my message. Feel free to stay and listen if you wish. You'll find my message most enlightening.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Friends and fellow humans – I bring you a warning! A warning of a great plague spreading across our planet! Please, listen to me! My name is Gorton Colu. Will you join my cause? We must band together if we are to stop the spread of vermin and scum throughout Taris! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: How dare you speak to me while you travel in the presence of alien Wookiee scum! You have violated one of this great planet's oldest and most revered laws! You have brought aliens to the Upper City! They are a blight upon Taris – they take our jobs and our homes, and spread their filth throughout our world.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll be going now. KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: No more filth than you're spreading, crazy man.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Yeah! You tell him, Big Z!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Go then – you are no better than the alien-lovers! Turn a blind eye. Ignore what is happening, and one day you will see it is too late! KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: This beast just growled at me! It is a savage creature that will hurt someone! How dare you brazenly parade about the Upper City with such alien scum at your side! I, Gorton Colu, founder of the Anti-Alien League will not stand for this!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Vermin and scum? What are you talking about? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you refering to the Sith? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Don't worry – this Wookiee is just my servant.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: I am speaking of the hideous-looking aliens who walk the world of Taris! The Wookiees and Ithorians and Rodians and Bith – all of them! Listen, friend, for these are dark times. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: I see you share the opinions of many on this world: that aliens are useful as servants and slaves. But I am here to tell you this is not so! Aliens deserve only death!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Do we have to stand here and listen to this space-slug? He’s starting to get on my nerves, you know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Silence, alien scum! The presence of your kind is tolerated here on Taris, but a change is coming!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: That is why I, Gorton Colu, have formed the Anti-Alien League. The time has come for action! We cannot sit idly by while aliens blight our glorious planet!

An enthusiastic response, whether in jest or in earnest, won't go down well with Mission or Bastila:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. You're right! We should slaughter the whole bunch of them!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Yes, my fellow human! You have seen the light! Gorton Colu has marked your face – I will remember you when the time to destroy the alien-lovers is upon us! For now, stay vigilant. Be ready. Trust no one. I will find you when the day of reckoning is upon us, and together we will rid beautiful Taris of these alien species!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hmph! You may think it's okay to joke about killing aliens to string Gorton along, but I don't think that kind of thing is funny at all! KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: That's not exactly humorous. You are encouraging his hatred and blindness.

If you humor him:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I see... well, good luck in your crusade. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Greetings again, friend. Have you mentioned my Anti-Alien League to others? We must always be looking for those sympathetic to our cause.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Uhh... I haven't mentioned it yet, but I will. Don't worry. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Uh... yes. I mention it to everyone I meet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Excellent, excellent! There is much work yet to be done, but spreading our message is the first step!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: Remain true to the cause, friend. Enlightened humans such as yourself are few and far between – but we shall triumph when the day of reckoning comes!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: What a rail-slug! Give Big Z five minutes alone with that guy and he'd straighten him out… or maybe twist him like a Tarisian Zella nut.

If you're not supportive:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I don't know which is worse – your hate-mongering or your ignorance. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Back off, you crazy kook. I don't have time for this. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I keep whatever company I want! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Get away from me, you bigot!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hear that, laser brain? Sell it somewhere else, 'cause we ain't buying!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: You are like all the rest! You will not see the truth! On the day of reckoning you will suffer with the rest of the alien lovers!
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Come on. We should keep moving. Kook or no, people like him can make trouble for us. KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: We should leave. This man may be deranged, but he could also make considerable trouble for us.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Gorton Colu: It pains me to see that an alien lover such as yourself is still allowed to walk free! I've seen how the Sith operate… I know they will support my anti-alien policies! When the day of reckoning comes, you will suffer with the rest of the scum and alien lovers!

Sith Base[edit]

The entrance to the Sith base is to the north of the Upper City elevator, but there's no reason to go there until you've completed the search for Bastila and you're escaping Taris.

A ship takes off from the landing pad to the left of the Sith Base entrance.

If you try to open or use the door, you're informed of the following:
