Atton may join your party on Peragus II when you return to the administration level from the dormitories, and you may speak to him briefly then, or in the cockpit of the Ebon Hawk before traveling to Telos: Citadel Station, but what follows is only unlocked after arrival.

When you speak to Atton with Alignment 40 or less:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Look, I know we've been through some rough times so far, but you need to stop letting it get to you.

When you speak to him with Alignment 25 or less:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Look, I didn't want to say anything, but you've forced my hand. I've heard about the Force, and what it does to people who can't control it... or themselves. And it shows in everything you do - and in your face.

When you speak to him with Alignment 10 or less:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I don't know what that witch did to you, but she's dragging you down into whatever hole she came out of. I'm only saying this because there's still a chance for you to stop this before whatever darkness she brought on you eats you alive.

When you speak to Atton with Alignment 60 or more:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You seem pretty calm - it's almost streaming off of you. A lot calmer than you were on Peragus when I first met you.
Alignment 75 or more Alignment 90 or more
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I don't know what it is, but you look different. It's hard to explain - but it's, uh, it's good to see. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You know, I noticed a glow before, but now... now it's bright around you. You've come a long way since Peragus... and despite all we've been through, you seem a lot better for it.

If Hanharr joins your party:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Care to explain why we have that psychotic Wookiee with us?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Because Hanharr is loyal, and I need a loyal ally. Understand? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Kreia thinks he will prove useful. I believe her. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. We can always use that animal to draw more blaster fire. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Because I needed one more slave. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Don't question me, Atton.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: All right. But this won't end well - trust me.

Otherwise, or upon returning, you can play Pazaak or say the following:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Something up?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I had some questions for you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Nothing, never mind.

Pazaak[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Can you teach me to play pazaak? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Let's play pazaak.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Note: The rules for pazaak will show up in your "completed quests" section of your journal screen whenever you need to access it.]
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Let's just play for practice, then. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. How about a game of pazaak, Republic Senate rules?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Uh... let's play a practice match, then. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Sounds good to me. I'll deal.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Play Pazaak]

Once Visas has joined your party, and you've continued the lesson Kreia can teach you afterwards:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Playing pazaak in your head again? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Atton, why do you play pazaak in your head?

Influence is gained every time the following response is given:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Atton, before, I felt your mind. With Kreia's help. I'm sorry.
Influence Gained: Atton
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Atton has taught you to play pazaak in your head as a way of resisting mental domination. You have gained a permanent +1 to your Willpower saves.]

Questions[edit]

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: All right - what did you want to know?

Before leaving Telos, you can only ask about Pazaak. After leaving Telos, if you told a Handmaiden Sister in the secret academy you were searching for your friends there before freeing them, and she told you about Atton's Echani training, then you can ask about it now if you didn't already completely exhaust the subject with Atton back at the academy:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Care to explain where you got your Echani training?
Low (Affect Mind) 1. [Force Persuade] Tell me the truth. Now.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Atton: Enhhhh... wh... Y... you damn Jedi are all the same... give you a little power, and it rots you all the way to the core. Stay out of my head - I mean it.
Influence Lost: Atton
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Very well. But I'll be watching you.

Otherwise, with Persuade rank > 3:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. [Persuade] Don't change the subject. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I think you're lying to me.
Influence Lost: Atton
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Yeah? So what? I don't ask any dumb questions about your past, despite the fact that it keeps throwing us into life-threatening situations. Want to know why? I figure if you ever want to tell me something, you will. So give me the same respect, all right?
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
4. I was just asking - no harm meant. I just thought it could be an asset.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Persuade] I'm not accusing you, I just want to know if you've got any other useful skills. You could be a real asset with combat training.
Influence Gained: Atton
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Huh? Well... hey, thanks. But you've got the wrong guy. I'm good at shooting people, cracking wise, and pretending to know how to fight with my hands.

If you return after trying to use the Force to persuade him:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What, you ready to continue interrogating me? I think I've got some childhood details you haven't tried to rip out of me yet.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget it. Let's go.

Otherwise, with Persuade rank > 3:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Persuade] I wasn't interrogating you, I just wanted to know if you had any other useful skills. You're a real asset.
Influence Gained: Atton
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Huh? Well... hey, thanks. But you've got the wrong guy. I'm good at shooting people, cracking wise, and pretending to know how to fight with my hands.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Got it. Just wanted to check on you.

Nar Shaddaa[edit]

While travelling through the southeast quarter of Refugee Commons in the Refugee Quad on Nar Shaddaa, two Twi'leks approach you with something you might like to know. Once you've been warned not to trust Atton, you can confront him about this:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I met someone on Nar Shaddaa who says he knows you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Calm down, I just wanted to know. No harm meant. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I think I have a right to know about your past.
Influence Gained: Atton
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Is this an interrogation? If so, you're terrible at it, especially for an ex-Jedi... or whatever you are. Why don't you just crawl in my head and try to dig out whatever you're looking for rather than asking about it?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Maybe I will if you won't tell me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I wouldn't do that - again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If you've got a problem, let's settle it right now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Perhaps pain will bring the truth out of you.
Influence Lost: Atton
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You know what? I helped you get off Peragus. If I hadn't been there, you wouldn't have even gotten off the administration level. I'm trying to help you. I don't know why I'm bothering.
Intelligence > 14 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Why are you trying to protect me?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Intelligence] Actually, if I had been trapped on the administration level on Peragus, the Sith still would have arrived through the airlock and tried to capture me.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. If you've got a question, then ask. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. I did a lot I wasn't proud of - and I am sorry for the lives that were lost, on both sides.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. My power gives me the right.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. If you wish to die, keep talking.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Go ahead and try. I might be a little more than you can handle... but I expect that kind of arrogance from a Jedi.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You weren't there. You have no idea what happened.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Oh yeah? Shows how much you know. Maybe you're wrong about a lot of other things, too.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. They did not deserve it. Why would you even say that?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. There must be some reason you believe as you do – why? KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. No one deserved what happened at Malachor. How can you say those Jedi deserved to die?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Because Jedi lie. And they manipulate. And every act of charity or kindness they do, you can drag it out squirming into the light and see it for what it is. The galaxy doesn't need Jedi arrogance or Jedi hypocrisy anymore.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. The Jedi are guardians of the peace. They are not as you describe.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. And that is why the Sith were right.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. That is why I am no longer a Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What do you mean?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Whatever - just leave me alone. I don't know why I'm wasting time with you anyway.

Even if you've gained or lost sufficient influence to continue, you can now stop and return to this point when you next speak.

Mandalorian War[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to know about your past, especially if we're travelling together.
40 > Influence > 60 40-60 Influence
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Success] Well, don't get too attached to me - I don't like it. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Failure] Yeah, well, maybe it's better that way. I'm not a sharing kind of guy.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. You took an oath - what you did was a betrayal. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. That was wrong - you answered war with war.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I agree. The Republic did not deserve your loyalty, not any longer. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. The Republic was weak. You were right to turn from them - and the Jedi.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: No, it wasn't. We needed the Jedi during the Mandalorian Wars, more than anything.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: The Mandalorians were slaughtering us by the millions. The millions. You were at Serroco, when they turned the Stereb cities into glass craters. At Duro, when basilisk war droids rained like meteors onto the orbiting cities, and when the Mandalorians set fire to the Xoxin plains on Eres III - the fires that still burn. Without the Jedi who turned on the Council - without you, the Republic would have lost the war, and we would all be Mandalorian slaves or corpses.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Instead, you all became Sith. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. That is no reason to start another war against the Republic and end more lives.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You betrayed your oath. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. The Republic deserved to be betrayed - and you knew where your true loyalties lay.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: If that's what you want to call knowing when to fight and when to kill, then yes, but you can't really break down people into Sith and Jedi and expect everything to make sense. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Well, that puts us on the same level, doesn't it? Doesn't make your decision any more right than mine if you want to start sentencing me.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: We were loyal to Revan. That was enough. He saved us. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: We were loyal to Revan. That was enough. She saved us.

If you've gained or lost sufficient influence then you have to continue, otherwise you have to stop and return to this point when you have.

Jedi Civil War[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What happened then? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. So you followed Revan - like I had. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you want to talk about it? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to hear more about what happened after the Mandalorian Wars.
30 > Influence > 70 30-70 Influence
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Success] After Malachor, after the Mandalorian Wars, that's when the Sith teachings started spreading through the ranks. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Failure] It's another story, and it's nothing I feel like talking about. I did a lot of things I'm not proud of... and I couldn't do it anymore.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. This is a little hard to believe.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Yeah, maybe you'll believe this - that when fighting a Jedi, you wound the Padawan first, then let the rest take care of itself. Not only will the master move to protect the student, but the Force bond between the two will mess up the master's head better than any stab wound. Anything else? That's only a sample of my arsenal.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. Could be handy if I need to murder any Jedi - go on.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. Tell me, I need to know how to protect myself, and others around me.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Why are you telling me this? You're telling a Jedi you killed Jedi.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. You took a risk, thinking I would care that you killed Jedi - I don't.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I need some time to think about this.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Take your time - I have.

Even if you have gained or lost sufficient influence to continue, you can now stop and return to this point when you next speak.

Jedi[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. But why did you leave the Sith? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What made you leave the Sith?
20 > Influence > 80 20-80 Influence
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Success] Well, there was a woman. A Jedi. She... she gave her life for mine. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Failure] I think there's been enough lies and truth for today. Let's just leave it for now. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: [Influence: Failure] No, I don't think we're ready for that conversation yet.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. That is what it means to be a Jedi.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. Perhaps she felt a greater good would be served with your salvation.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Jedi lies.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Maybe. It doesn't matter.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then I welcome your help. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I can't forgive you for what you've done, Atton.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I didn't want to tell you any of this. But... I had to. Because if something happens, I can't let you think I was doing it for something other than the past. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I don't want you to forgive me. That would only make it worse. All I want is to try and help, try and make a difference - pay her back. I feel I owe her that much.

Any of the following sets a darker tone, but otherwise has no effect on the alignment of either of you:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Then she lied to you, Atton. That is what Jedi do. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You owe her nothing - she filled your head with Jedi lies. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Pay her for what? Using the Force on your mind?

Otherwise, or upon returning:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. That is all I ask. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Then let us stand together against the Sith. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I welcome your help - and your honesty. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to teach you to feel the Force.

In either case, only say you'll train him once you don't want him to gain any more levels as a Scoundrel:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Atton has taken his first steps on the path of a Dark Jedi Sentinel. His power will grow as he travels with you and masters what you know of the Force.] KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Atton has taken his first steps on the path of a Jedi Sentinel. He will grow in ability as he travels with you and learns what you know of the Force.]

Only your alignment affects these responses, but in practice Atton's alignment is also affected by your influence with him:

Alignment Dark Light
Influence Low Jedi Sentinel Dark Jedi Sentinel
High Dark Jedi Sentinel Jedi Sentinel
