Map of the Valley of Dark Lords

Sith Academy[edit]

Entrance to Academy is at the south end of the valley. The first time you enter you'll encounter Calo Nord here if you haven't done so since escaping Taris, and Darth Bandon does so if he hasn't been encountered since leaving the planet on which your third Star Map was found.

Caves[edit]

A narrow path leads to the northeast. Around a hairpin bend to the west is the entrance to the Shyrack Caves where you'll have your first Shyrack encounter, the composition of which depends on your character level:

They all look alike, but while Shyrack and Raptors actually inflict slightly more damage than Wyrms and have higher Defense and Reflex saves, they have significantly less vitality.

Renegade Sith can be found within the caves, as can the light side Qel-Droma Robes.

Dak Vesser[edit]

Past the caves the path continues to the north, where it opens into the valley itself. A Sith guard stands on either side of the entrance, while a Sith patrol wanders around the perimeter of the pillars in the center of the valley:

Sith Guard/Patrol
I am not here to get you out of trouble if you do something stupid, student. Enter the tombs at your own risk.
Any artifacts found should be brought to the attention of Master Uthar immediately.
Watch out for the tuk'ata. They will charge you on sight. Run back to the excavation area and we can protect you.
A dangerous assassin droid has barricaded itself within the tomb of Marka Ragnos, the first one on the left. Be wary.
There is an old Sith hermit that has been haunting this area, we understand. Watch out for him.
Beware of the tuk'ata. They are a pack beast that have their nests in one of the tombs. We fight them off as best we can.
The second tomb on the left within the valley is the tomb of Naga Sadow. It is off-limits to all students, unless they are in the company of Master Uthar.

The Sith student Dak Vesser can be seen working by a rock to the northwest of the entrance:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Greetings. I don't think I've seen you at the academy before. Here to investigate the ruins? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Back again? Something else I can tell you?

If Juhani is in your party:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Back again? Something... oh. Juhani... is... that you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: My name's Dak Vesser. I'm assigned to the valley ruins, as you can see. We've been painstakingly uncovering these tombs for many months, now.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Dak? That is you, isn't it? I... hardly recognized you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: It's been a long time, Juhani.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: What are you doing here? Did... did you fall to the dark side?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: I didn't 'fall', Juhani... I had my eyes opened. And don't look at me like that. Last I recall, you were having your own doubts.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I was. I'm not anymore. Dak... you could...
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Save it. The Jedi aren't for me... not anymore. Look... I'm not going to ask why a couple of Jedi are in the Valley of the Dark Lords. I don't want to know. It's better that I don't. In fact, I'll just get out of here and leave you to whatever it is you're planning to do. Fair enough?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Running away? Again?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Why not? It's what I do best.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I take it you two know each other? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How can I trust you not to say anything?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Yes. Isn't it obvious? I don't want to talk about it here, however. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Does it matter? I'm going. Isn't that enough for you?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I don't think there's much to talk about. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Let him go. He... won't say anything.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Have it your way, Juhani. You always do.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I take it you two know each other? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How can I trust you not to say anything? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. So you're leaving? Just like that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Look... I don't want to be here after you leave. There'll be too many questions. So ask what you have to ask and I'll be on my way.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Master Uthar won't allow us to dig with lasers or sonics... we have to use hand tools only so we don't accidentally destroy anything we run across. That makes progress very slow, however.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What can you tell me about these ruins?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Well... it seems that the Sith once inhabited Korriban a long time ago. There was a fortress here that was destroyed at some point before the Sith abandoned the planet completely. Why they left, we don't know. Perhaps the Jedi drove them off. The tombs in this valley are the only parts of the fortress we've found mostly intact.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Made any unusual findings?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Some. Most of the interesting stuff is still in the tombs, but Master Uthar prefers to leave them to be explored by the students, as a challenge. In time, they will probably become safe enough for us to enter. Until that time, however, we're stuck to digging up the valley piece by piece.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The tombs are dangerous?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Definitely dangerous. Most of the students that go inside them don't come back out. Master Uthar prefers it that way.

He can tell you about these ruins, and then about these tombs:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What can you tell me about these tombs?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: There's four tombs here. On the right are the tombs of Ajunta Pall and Tulak Hord. On the left are the tombs of Marka Ragnos and Naga Sadow. All four were ancient Sith Lords.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about the tomb of Ajunta Pall.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: That's the first tomb on the right. There's a rumor that there's a powerful artifact still in there, but nobody's retrieved it, yet. That tomb supposedly has ancient battle droids and traps that are still functioning. It's amazing that their power sources have lasted so long, really.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about the tomb of Tulak Hord.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: That's the farthest tomb on the right. We don't know much about Tulak Hord, unfortunately... the tuk'ata have a nest in that tomb, I think.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The tuk'ata?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: A local pack animal that's very dangerous. Occasionally the guards track down a queen and kill it... that usually pacifies them for a bit.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Tell me about the tomb of Marka Ragnos. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Anything else I should know?

If you ask if he's heard about a Star Map being found here, or to tell you about the tomb of Naga Sadow:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Have you heard about a Star Map being found here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: A Star Map? No, I haven't heard anything about that. Something like that could be in Naga Sadow's tomb, I suppose... that tomb's off limits to the students.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Naga Sadow's tomb? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Tell me about the tomb of Naga Sadow.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: It's the second tomb on the left when you enter the valley. Naga Sadow was the leader of the old Sith Masters here, we think. Darth Malak found something in there a while back, however, and ever since then only Master Uthar can enter it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What did he find? Do you know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: No. A lot of the discoveries are kept secret, even from the students. I only heard that Darth Malak found something there by rumor, to be honest.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I have to go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Alright. Just be careful if you head into any of those tombs. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: So do I.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Goodbye, Dak... and... thank you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Goodbye, Juhani.

He'll leave after speaking to Juhani. If you speak to her yourself, you can ask her to tell you about him:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: How may I be of assistance to you, Padawan?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I was wondering if we could talk.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: What is it you would like to speak to me about?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about this Dak Vesser.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: There is little to tell. Dak and I were both Padawans... we joined the Order at the same time. He was a kind man, but... frustrated. He felt the Jedi were too controlling, too limiting... more so than I did. When he decided to leave the Order, he asked me to come with him. He... he said he loved me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But you didn't love him? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. That doesn't sound so serious. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Oh. Forget I asked.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: No, I didn't. I enjoyed his company, as a friend, but nothing further. I had no idea he felt as he did. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: It was serious enough to him... and to me, for I did not wish to hurt him. I had little choice in the matter. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: I suppose the rest is obvious enough that I need not tell it.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: He was angry at my refusal. I... assumed that he would get over the hurt in time. I suppose such feelings can fester and darken, and they never go away.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: He reminds me of what I was when you found me in the grove. I... feel sorry for him. But he has chosen his path, hasn't he? If I thought he would accept an offer of help, I would give it. Let us... just move on, please.

Once Dak Vesser has left the valley, he can be found on the southeast side of Dreshdae's Cantina:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: If you must know, I intend to take the first ship off of this rock. Why should that interest you? I trust you got whatever you wanted from the tombs?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How do you know Juhani?

If Juhani is in your party:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Why don't you ask her?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Because I asked you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: She and I were... students together at Dantooine, for a time. We were close, and we shared doubts about the Jedi's ways. I left for the Sith because I thought it would be better here. It looks like Juhani changed her mind and stayed with the Jedi after all. Your doing, maybe? Anyway... I'm done with the Jedi, the Sith... and with her. Just leave me alone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why are you leaving, exactly?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: I already said, didn't I? I don't want to still be around when they start asking questions about you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But where will you go?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Why do you care? I've no intention of opposing you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Perhaps I'll go back to Dantooine. Or just somewhere where there's no Sith or Jedi, period. KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Perhaps... you could go back to the Jedi. I did.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: I don't know. I'll think about it. Just leave me alone, Juhani.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What if I said I'm not going to just let you leave?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Is there some reason you should stop me from going? Are you afraid I'm going to tell someone you're here? What are you going to do, kill me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. How do I know I can trust you not to betray me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: I may have studied with the Sith, but I've no special loyalty to them. You can believe me or not, as you wish.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's exactly what I'm going to do. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Then I'm afraid I have to kill you.
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Leave him be! I said that he would not betray you. Just... let him go.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Still sticking up for me, Juhani?
KotOR Icon Juhani.png Juhani: Just... go, Dak.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Never mind. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's exactly what I'm going to do. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I suppose not. Just go, then. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Then I'm afraid I have to kill you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Then I suppose I'll believe you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Then leave me be.

Otherwise, if Juhani isn't in your party then when you say you're going to kill him she isn't there to stop you:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Dak Vesser: Fine. Let's end it here, then. It looks like you belong amongst the Sith more than I ever did.

Ajunta Pall's Tomb[edit]

A Sith archaeologist can be seen working at a site to the northeast of the entrance to the valley; another works by a fallen pillar further to the north, while two others work at a second site around the rocks between the two tomb entrances on the east side of the valley and two Sith students wander between the two sites:

Sith Archaeologist/Student
Sorry, I can't talk. We have to excavate this valley with hand instruments. There's all kinds of old traps left behind that still work.
There's supposed to be some crazy Sith hermit that keeps kidnapping students in these hills. Best be careful.
You're out here to look for artifacts, I suppose? Just be careful.
Look, unless you're willing to lend a hand, leave us to our work.
These tombs we've uncovered are only the tip of an entire ancient Sith fortress. I wonder what happened here?
One has to wonder what made the Sith leave this planet originally. I bet the Jedi came and destroyed the colony.
I was told that there's an escaped assassin droid in one of the tombs. Watch out for it.
The tombs are all full of traps and droids that still work, it looks like. Stay out of them, if you can.
We've had indications that there's a whole ancient Sith colony under this valley. Isn't that an incredible find?
Careful of the tuk'ata. It's all we can do to keep those beasts away while we work.
Where is that blasted transport crew? We're supposed to send off the next shipment of artifacts right away.
The tomb on the far left, there, is off-limits. Only Master Uthar can go inside.
You aren't assigned to the excavation team, are you?
Sorry... I'm rather busy with the excavation planning, right now.

There's a metal box opposite the entrance to the Tomb of Ajunta Pall:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Metal Box

Sword of Ajunta Pall[edit]

The Sith student Galon Lor stands to the left of the entrance to Ajunta Pall's tomb, on the north side:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galor Lor: Oh... hello to you. You're new to the academy, aren't you? I can't say we've ever met. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Hello again. Still roaming about the valley, I see?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Galon Lor, at your service. Aren't these tombs fascinating? We had no idea the Sith were here so long ago.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why not? Aren't there records?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Not from this far back. Or, at least, what records do exist are sketchy at best. These ruins date back to a period when the Sith were first formed, before their exile into the far reaches of space. It's quite fascinating.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What are you doing here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: I've been working on a translation of some of the runes by this tomb. I'm quite excited... this may very well be the tomb of Ajunta Pall.

You can ask about Ajunta Pall and his sword:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who is Ajunta Pall? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You think his sword might be here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Ajunta Pall was one of the first of the great Sith Lords. He rebelled against his Jedi Masters and led the way for the rest of us that followed. These runes claim that he was interred here... and I wonder if his sword might not be here, as well. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: The runes say that he was interred here, so I think it may indeed be possible. Whoever found the sword could gain great prestige.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. His sword?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: According to legend, Ajunta Pall created a sword of terrible power. Someone who located it could gain considerable 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 Galon Lor: A... few of the bolder students have tried. They did not return. As I understand it, the tombs are quite dangerous.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What makes the tombs so dangerous?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: From what I've been told, the tombs have old traps and machines that are still active. They were designed to keep out intruders when they were made and still do. I suppose if the academy wanted to make a concerted effort, the tomb would be opened... but I think Master Uthar prefers to keep it as a challenge for the students.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Why don't you go in, then?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Oh, these tombs are certainly not harmless. Don't think that. The sword may be tempting, but I'm not about to risk my life to find it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you a coward, then?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: N-no. I want power as much as the next person, but I'm not stupid. I know what I'm capable of.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Gain prestige?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Certainly. Finding such an artifact and giving it to Master Uthar would earn anyone big points. 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 Galon Lor: Nothing at all. The legends don't say anything about it... it may have had powers only for Ajunta alone.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I've got to be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Galon Lor: Of course. Don't let me keep you from your business.

There's also a metal box behind him:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Metal Box

Tulak Hord's Tomb[edit]

The entrance to the Tomb of Tulak Hord is in the northeast corner of the valley. There's a metal box to the left of this entrance:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Metal Box

Hermit in the Hills[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: Nothing that I can think of. There's supposedly some old Sith hermit that haunts these hills and kidnaps students. Might want to watch out for him.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Hermit in the Hills
You have been told about a mad hermit who can be found in the hills surrounding the Valley of the Dark Lords. Apparently he preys upon unsuspecting academy students, his victims never being seen again. How much of this story is true is unknown, but dealing with the problem might be worthy of prestige.

Meeting Place[edit]

Once you've convinced Lashowe in the Sith academy to allow you to help her recover a relic in this valley, you'll find her by the rocks opposite the entrance to Tulak Hord's Tomb in the northeast corner of the valley. She speaks as you approach...

Aiding Lashowe[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: There you are. Finally. If you were any later in showing up, we would have had to abandon this. I've been calling to the tuk'ata mother in their language. She should respond fairly -- ahhh, here she comes now.

A Tuk'ata queen and two other Tuk'ata emerge from the direction of the tomb.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Get ready. This will not be easy... she's a tough beast.

The high natural Force Resistance of the tuk'ata means that any Force users are advised to follow Lashowe's example and use (Advanced) Throw Lightsaber against them.

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Wonderful! Ha ha! The beast is dead! We work better together than I would have hoped. And here is the holocron. Such a small thing to be so valuable and require so much effort to obtain. I'll just run along, now, and give this to Master Uthar. I'll be sure to tell him of your contribution, naturally.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I... suppose that's alright. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I suppose so. Fine... take it back. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Fine. Go, if that's the way you want it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Good. You have my... appreciation... for all your help. Good luck in your efforts.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
You and your rival, Lashowe, have worked together to defeat a tuk'ata mother beast and recover an ancient but corrupt Jedi holocron. Lashowe was insistent on returning it to Uthar herself. Somehow you doubt that you and she will be sharing the prestige for the holocron like you planned.

If you let her leave, she obviously doesn't share and you gain no experience or prestige unless you're willing to move closer to the dark side of the Force by killing her back at the academy. However, even if you take your revenge you still gain more by challenging her here. This leads to combat, but only one response moves you closer to the dark side of the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. And how can I be sure of that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You're the one that convinced me to go through with this plan. Why wouldn't I see it through?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want some kind of guarantee.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Forget it. There is no guarantee. You helped me, I'll help you. Or don't you trust me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Wait. We'll go to Master Uthar together.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Forget it. I'm not waiting up for you. That wasn't our plan, anyway.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're going to betray me, I know it! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. The 'plan' was we both get the credit.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Back off, I'm warning you! I'm not giving this up!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No more arguing. We take it back together. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Then I'll just have to take it from you!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. No way. I'll be taking the holocron back, not you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Not bloody likely. Give me the holocron. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The plan's changed. Give me the holocron.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You're not getting the holocron. This was my idea! The plan was that I take it back, not you!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
3. Forget it. That holocron is mine.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
You and your hopeful rival, Lashowe, worked together to defeat a tuk'ata mother beast and recover an ancient but corrupt Jedi holocron. Lashowe was insistent on returning the holocron to Master Uthar by herself, however, and the two of you battled. Lashowe was killed, but you now have the holocron for yourself.

This small crystal supposedly holds holographic recordings of the ancient Sith... information which could be incredibly valuable. There's no telling how long the holocron has been lost in the area, nor how well it works.

You can now return the holocron to Master Uthar back at the academy, where you gain most experience and prestige by not lying about killing her:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 12. I have found a Jedi holocron.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: *chuckle* I had heard that such an artifact existed. Tell me, young one... did you acquire this device by yourself?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You lie. Still, what matters is the fact that you succeeded. And Lashowe... does she yet live? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: So I see. And Lashowe... does she yet live?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Lie] I have no idea. Probably. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. No, I killed her.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: You didn't kill her? How very foolish. Now you have an enemy to contend with. The holocron, itself, is an impressive item, however. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Ha ha! Well done! You gained an artifact through trickery and eliminated an opponent at the same time. That is deserving of great prestige!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
You turned over the ancient, corrupted Jedi holocron to Master Uthar... and while you didn't tell him of Lashowe's exact fate, you got the impression that he didn't care overly much what happened to her. At any rate, you have earned prestige for bringing him the holocron.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
You turned over the ancient, corrupted Jedi holocron to Master Uthar... who was not only impressed at your possession of the relic, but seemed quite pleased by the fact that you had dispatched one of your rivals, as well. You have earned a great deal of prestige today.

  • 110 Turned over holocron and denied killing Lashowe
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 210 Turned over holocron and admitted killing Lashowe

If you let her return the holocron herself, you're about to learn not to be so demure in the future:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 12. Has Lashowe shown you the Jedi holocron?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: She did. Prestige is not shared, however, if that is what you are wondering. If you aided her, it was to her benefit and not yours.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
Sure enough, Lashowe has turned the corrupt Jedi holocron you worked together to recover over to Master Uthar by herself. You will receive no prestige for it.

If you're willing to move closer to the dark side of the Force then you can salvage something from the situation by confronting her about this betrayal:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You are such a fool. I cannot believe that you were gullible enough to allow me to return with the holocron. I gained considerable prestige for it, you know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. But I helped you get the holocron!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: So? That's your problem, not mine.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You betrayed me, you traitorous...!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: Ha ha ha! Look... either do something about it or run along, will you? I have prestige to earn.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Fine. I'll go, now.
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 1. You won't get away with this! I'll kill you!
KotOR Icon HK-47.png HK-47: Commentary: I like the sound of this! Warming up blasters... on your command, master!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: You're joking, of course. You want to fight me here? In the academy?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I suppose not.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Lashowe: I thought not. Get lost, then, will you? I'm busy.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. That's right!
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Lashowe: Ha ha ha! Oh, I wonder what Master Uthar will think of this! Alright, then... you have yourself a fight!

She's slightly more challenging than out in the valley, and different items are retrieved from her remains. Let's find out what Master Uthar thinks of this:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 12. I've killed Lashowe.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Uthar Wynn: Killed her out of revenge, did you? Well done. I can appreciate such drama, believe me. I am most impressed that you have eliminated an opponent so handily.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Aiding Lashowe
Lashowe had betrayed you by bringing the ancient, corrupted Jedi holocron to Master Uthar herself, denying you the prestige that you were supposed to share. The fact that you killed her for it seems to have impressed Master Uthar considerably… he has rewarded you with prestige for eliminating a potential rival.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 110 Killed Lashowe for her betrayal

If you speak to Yuthura Ban after Lashowe's death:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Yuthura Ban: I understand you managed to kill Lashowe. Well done! She was devious, but I knew her trust could be turned against her! One less opponent is an excellent result regardless of how it occurs, correct? Now, then... something you needed?

Marka Ragnos' Tomb[edit]

The entrance to the Tomb of Marka Ragnos is in the southwest corner of the valley.

Rogue Droid[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dak Vesser: That's the first tomb on the left. Someone mentioned that a crazy droid has holed itself up in there, but I don't know much about that.

The Sith student standing to the right of the entrance to Marka Ragnos' tomb can give you the same information:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: You should be careful if you're planning on entering this tomb... it's dangerous.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I can handle myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: If you say so. Just thought I would warn you, is all.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why? What do you know about it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. They're all dangerous.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Maybe so, but this one more than most, I think.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: There's an assassin droid in here, so Master Uthar says. It went insane and has holed up in here with a whole army of droids protecting it.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Rogue Droid
You have been told about a rogue Sith droid that has escaped from the labs and holed itself up in one of the valley's tombs. The Sith have not yet decided to go into the tomb to remove it by force... leaving it to some enterprising Sith hopefuls to take that job upon themselves.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why don't the Sith do something about it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: I don't know. I think Master Uthar has left it in there as a challenge for any student brave enough to destroy it. Supposedly, if a student actually succeeds in destroying the droid, they'll get a great reward. Lots have tried, but nobody's succeeded yet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Where did it get all these droids?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: No idea. I think it's building them in there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. This droid went insane, you say?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Seems that way. They say that its audio receptors became too sensitive and all the noise drove the droid nuts. If you're planning on going in, I'd suggest you use some sound suppressors or something... or you'll probably become a target right away.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Are you going inside?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: I... I don't think so. I can manipulate minds and living matter, but that won't be much use against droids, will it? I've had a few friends go inside that haven't come out for a while, now. I doubt I could do any better than they could.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Thanks. I'll be going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Student: Sure thing. Good luck.

Naga Sadow's Tomb[edit]

Two Sith archaeologists work by the rocks at the north end of the pillars in the center of the valley on the west side, and there's a metal box to the right of the entrance to the Tomb of Naga Sadow in the northwest corner of the valley:

Although you can enter the tomb, the passage is blocked by another door:
