After a male character has left the secret academy on Telos, the Handmaiden is in the Cargo Hold of the Ebon Hawk. When you first speak to her there, or after adding her to your party, with Alignment 80 or more, or 20 or less:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Oh... welcome, exile. Is there something you need? KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Yes? KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Yes?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Never mind. I'll be going.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I just wanted to ask some questions. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Can I ask you some questions? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Enough. I had questions for you.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: You may ask.

Atris[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Did Atris ever mention me?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If I fought Atris, then that might make the truth come out? KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. So if I crushed Atris' skull into the floor, that might get to the heart of the matter?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Perhaps it may prove truer than conversing with words. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not think the battle would go as you describe, but in essence, yes.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions - mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Forget it. I had some other questions.

If you wanted to ask her about Atris, you can move closer to the light or dark side of the Force, and gain Influence with her:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I wanted to ask you about Atris.
30 < Influence < 70 31 > Influence > 69
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: She speaks of you often, in anger. But her movements, the motion of her hand, her eyes, do not share the anger of her words. There are only the signs of loss. It has been almost the count of ten years, yet the thought of you burns within her still. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Failure] I do not wish to speak of her to you. Her actions are her own, and to reveal to you if she sees fit.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. If you have any others, you are always welcome to ask.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. Only fools fear questions - and their answers.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Thank you, then. I hope this creates some measure of trust between us.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. It does, and I thank you. I wanted to ask you something else.

Sisters[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Why do you look different than your sisters?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I honor the face of my mother. It is not something usually spoken of in the company of others.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. I apologize. I meant no offense.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: There is no need to apologize. You were merely remarking on something that you saw - there is no wrong in that.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Is it a sensitive subject?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: It is not a sensitive subject, but a subject that requires trust. There is no such trust between you and I, and such trust takes time.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. So you have a different mother... but the same father?
35 < Influence < 65 36 > Influence > 64
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not wish to discuss it. If there is something else you wished to ask, you may do so. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Yes, that is correct. I feel that I may trust you with such things, so I shall speak of it, if you wish to hear it.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. I appreciate your trust - thank you for telling me.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Your father's choice and my choice have nothing to do with each other. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you blame me for Malachor V? KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
5. You know nothing of my choice - and do not presume to.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. I am grateful for your words, and for your assistance.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I will accept your pledge. Let us stand together then. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Then serve me - and serve me well, or you shall stand with me no longer.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: You honor me, exile. Together, then.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I had other questions.

Handmaidens[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Why are you called the Handmaidens? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Is there a reason you are called the "last" of the Handmaidens?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: We attend Atris. It is the duty of all of us, from the first of my sisters to me, the last of the Handmaidens.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. You are the last of them?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I am the last of the Handmaidens, this is correct. I train so that one day that will no longer be true.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The others said you were easily distracted from your training. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. Your skill is impressive, as is your devotion to your training.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. If you are distracted and lack discipline, then you deserve your rank.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: It dishonors me that they would say such a thing to an outsider. But I cannot deny the truth in what they say. My thoughts are not always focused on training. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: That is not entirely correct. There are times I am... distracted.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. Battle is not the truth of the Jedi teachings - I believe it is the farthest thing from it.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. Combat is not the Jedi way - and it is not my way.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. To lose those combat techniques would be tragic, indeed. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
5. When the methods to inflict violence on others is limited, it weakens us all.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
5. Devotion? I prefer obedience. To a cause... and a master.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Nor a greater show of fealty.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: If that is where one's devotion lies. When you risk pain or death for another, there is no truer test of your beliefs and strength.

Otherwise, you only move closer to the light side of the Force if you haven't already said combat is not the Jedi way:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. Combat is not the best way to communicate with others.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. So you'd consider slaughter a means of expression? KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. I agree. It shows how far you are willing to go for your goals.

Name[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Do you have a name?
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. You should take value in yourself as well.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. As do all slaves. If you have no value to anyone but Atris, you have no value to me.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: We all have value in our oaths to others, and the promises we make. When we make that pledge, we are pledging ourselves to something greater. When importance is placed on the self, then by such acts the galaxy is unmade.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. There is some truth in what you say. Is that your judgment of me?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you making some comment about me turning from the Jedi Code?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: If reasons of the self is why you turned away, then yes, perhaps there was a judgment there, but it was not intended as an attack. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Nothing except that which you have interpreted.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you think that I lost myself when I disobeyed the Jedi?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not know. That is a question you must ask yourself.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Right now the only question I'm asking myself is why I'm letting you stay. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. Keep your opinions to yourself, or I will make you regret them.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I meant no offense, but the question remains. If the question angers you, oftentimes there is a reason for such anger.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I had some other questions.

Academy[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I would like to return to the academy on Telos.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: It is not possible to dock at the Academy without the proper codes.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you have them?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Yes, but I could not give them to you.

Fighting moves[edit]

The Handmaiden spars in the Cargo Hold of the Ebon Hawk, and you can ask her if she can teach you some fighting moves to start a duel there:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. What are you doing?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 8. Can you teach me some fighting moves?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Training is something reserved for certain caste members of the Echani... but I do not see the harm in instructing you in some basic principles. I do not understand how you and Atris fight, but I will instruct you on how Echani children are raised on warfare.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Does that include no armor? Or clothes?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Duels among the Echani are rituals, and do not allow for armor or anything that restricts movement.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I am making an exception in this case, as you requested.

First duel[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. All right - no Force powers, weapons, or items. Got it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Prepare yourself, then. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Hope you're ready to hit the floor. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. This contest shall be quick. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Yes, no Force powers, weapons or items, got it.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Very well. I shall match my movements to resist your efforts. And do not hold back, or I will hurt you.

Any active buffs are cancelled and any clothing, robes or body armor and weapons are removed. Any mines set before a duel remain, and unlike her sisters she doesn't have Mine Immunity. However, setting mines shouldn't be necessary, particularly if she hasn't been levelled up or equipped since joining your party:

The cargo hold's Low Security Door is locked for the duration of the duel. If you lose:

However, since she's joined your party, you can control the level of challenge: the easiest way to win all three duels is simply not to level up or equip her until you've done so. Regardless of the outcome, you're restored to maximum Vitality after each duel, and the next time you return to the Ebon Hawk, Atton walks in on the Handmaiden as she spars:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Fool.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Schutta.

Also regardless of the outcome of any duel, the next time you return to speak to her, you can ask the following:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Do you think you could put some clothes on?
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Handmaiden

However, the Handmaiden still removes her robe whenever you duel, and doesn't replace it afterwards: although it is placed in Inventory, it won't be displayed there and it cannot be equipped by her again until you leave the Ebon Hawk with her added to your party. You can ask the Handmaiden if she could put on some clothes again after a duel, but each time another Handmaiden's Robe is generated rather than taken from inventory: although only she can actually use it, this can still be exploited to generate multiple robes to break down into components, or sell for credits (and if you want to avoid this, then don't ask her if she could put on some clothes again until you've won all three duels).

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Those look like Jedi robes. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Those look like Jedi robes you're wearing.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: They suffice for training purposes. They belonged to my mother. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: They are. These robes belonged to my mother.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. They belonged to your mother? Who was she?
40 < Influence < 60
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Failure] That is not something I wish to discuss. Is there something else you needed?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Why don't you want to talk about it?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: It is a matter personal to me, and I do not feel comfortable discussing it with others. I have donned the robes to test my skills, that is all.
41 > Influence > 59
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] She was the one my father followed to war - she was a Jedi.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: These are her robes. I have not worn them since they came into my possession. They are the only thing of her that I possess.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. I am sorry for your loss.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. Whatever your feelings are concerning her, suppress them. She is gone.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you miss her? KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Sometimes the best part of the Jedi is the robes... at least they serve a purpose.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I think you misunderstand - I have no feelings concerning her at all. There is only curiosity.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I never knew her. There is no absence of presence when there was nothing there to begin with. I miss only that I never knew her at all. And what it was about her that caused my father to follow her to war.

The success of this influence allows you to gain more after you've violated the etiquette of your duel in any way:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
1. Using whatever power at your disposal is the truth. And victory is the objective.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. You are wrong. By adhering to a ritual established by others, you corrupt your own fighting skills.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Such lack of discipline is a weakness. It is another form of not knowing yourself, of not knowing your limits and strengths. If we defy such conventions, then no Echani would ever know another.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Just like you never knew what lead your father to follow your mother to war? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. It seems your father broke conventions in going to war. Was he ignorant?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: You will take back that challenge, exile. If you do not, then I shall teach you not to make such accusations lightly.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Deny that I am wrong, and I will take back those words. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If this is how you react to truth, then I have nothing more to say to you.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: There is truth in what you say. But the manner in which it was delivered is not welcome.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
1. I did it to teach you - not to humiliate you, that was simply an added bonus.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Life is filled with such truths - better you are taught by me than another.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I understand what you meant by the lesson. Please leave me.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll be going, then.

After winning your first duel:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Success] You fought well indeed, you have caught the principles of the style by watching and anticipating my movements.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden

Second duel[edit]

If you cannot level up to 14 (< 91000 XP) after winning your first duel, or 18 (< 153000 XP) after winning your second:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Can you teach me some more fighting moves?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not think you are ready for further instruction. Each movement of our arts demands some time to use the art in battle, or to examine how it may be best used in battle.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. You seem to be anticipating my attacks. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Any reason why I have to fight without clothes?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have gained Battle Precognition. It allows you to add your Wisdom bonus to your Defense in combat.]

Once you can level up to 14 (91000 XP or more):

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Very well. I think you are ready for the next tier of instruction. For this, we will keep the etiquette of the last duel, but we shall add any melee weapon you choose to the ritual, with the exception of the Jedi weapon, the saber. Vibroblade, Bothan stun stick, force pike - whatever you wish. But no items, no Force techniques.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. All right, any melee weapon, but no lightsaber, no items, and no Force powers. Got it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I am ready - hope you are. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Prepare yourself, then. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Whatever you use, it won't matter - you're still going down.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Then let us begin - and again, do not hold back. I will not.

Although replacing any clothing, robes or body armor before any attack is made still violates the etiquette of your duel, any weapons other than lightsabers can now be used, not just melee weapons. After winning your second duel:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Success] You fought well indeed, you have caught the principles of the style by watching and anticipating my movements.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Before you go, there is something I must know. Why did you go back, face trial?
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. Because I felt they deserved an explanation. Maybe I had to hear me defend myself, just to be certain.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I guess I thought maybe they could help me.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I see. It was always something I was curious about - to walk to one's own sentence willingly. It is a brave thing.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not exactly sure. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. To let them look upon me and see what war was - and how much hatred I had for them. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Only to show them their own weakness and cowardice.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not understand it myself. It was always something I was curious about - to walk to one's own sentence willingly. It is a brave thing. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I... see. But I feel I understand what you felt. To go to war... and then return to be judged by those who had not.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden

Third duel[edit]

Once you've won your second duel and you can level up to 18 (153000 XP or more):

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Can you teach me some more fighting moves?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I think you are ready for the final tier I wish to teach. You have made much progress. For this, you may use any melee weapon and any shields you possess. But nothing else, no Jedi saber and no other items.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. All right, so shields and melee weapons, but no lightsaber, no Force powers, and no other items. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Let's get on with it.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: We shall begin this final lesson, then.

After winning your third and final duel:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Atris was correct about you. You know war, its motions and currents. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Can you teach me some more fighting moves?
Influence Gained: Handmaiden
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: There is nothing more I can teach you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then maybe I can teach you some things.
25 < Influence < 75 26 > Influence > 74
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Failure] Other Echani have broken oaths in the past, and I will not. This is not something I wish to discuss. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] My father broke his oaths. He shamed us all. I do not wish to follow his path... I swore not to follow his path. If I were to follow a Jedi against Atris' wishes, then I would be betraying her. For you.
Influence Gained: Handmaiden

If Kreia hasn't remarked on how you are spending time with the servant of Atris:

Once she has, and you've already talked to the Handmaiden about her mother:

26 > Influence > 74
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you thought about your heritage?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I have thought about what you have said, of my mother, of my bloodline. There is something I would ask of you.

Jedi Guardian[edit]

Before you can talk to the Handmaiden about her mother, you need to speak to Kreia in the Port Dormitory of the Ebon Hawk, or after adding her to your party, after successfully influencing Handmaiden in one of two ways:

  • During or after your first duel, put on some clothes, ask her to do likewise, disagree, say they look like Jedi robes and then ask who her mother was (41 > Influence > 59).
  • Ask her why she looks different than her sisters, query her having a different mother but the same father (36 > Influence > 64), then say you would hear it (or words to that effect) if she should speak of it.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: You are spending time with the servant of Atris.

This unlocks the following when you next ask the Handmaiden some questions, or when you gain influence after telling her maybe you could teach her some things after winning your third duel:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I wanted to talk to you about your mother.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: What of her? As I said, I knew little about her.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Did you know that she was a Jedi Knight? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. She was a Jedi, her name was Arren Kae. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The Mandalorian Wars - she was one of the Jedi who served and died there, and good riddance.
40 < Influence < 60 41 > Influence > 59
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Failure] This is not something I wish to discuss. If there is something else you wish to ask, you may do so. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] This is already known to me. Why are you telling me this?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Because the Force runs strong in bloodlines, and you could learn to use it to help others. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. It means you may be able to feel the Force as well. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You can use that same power, but take a stronger, darker path.

If you haven't gained that influence after winning your third duel:

25 < Influence < 75 26 > Influence > 74
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Failure] Even if I believed you, to even discuss this is a betrayal of my oath to Atris. We have spoken long enough - now I wish to be left alone. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Failure] I... I do not know enough of you yet to speak of such things. I do not know your stance, your heart. Perhaps if we were to train together in battle, my thoughts on this would be clearer. But not now.

Once you have:

26 > Influence > 74
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] I... think I have always known this. It has always been on my thoughts.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] I... think I have always known this. It has always been on my thoughts. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
Handmaiden: [Influence: Success] I... think I have always known this. It has always been on my thoughts.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: As I followed Atris, perhaps what I wished to follow was the call of my bloodline, of my mother. I have felt incomplete, hollow, since her loss at Malachor V... and with your help, perhaps this wound might be healed.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: And so it ends.

If your alignment is dark (< 40):

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I want you to teach me to wield the Force as my mother did, to fight those that would threaten us - and end them.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then hear and obey - you have the makings of a Dark Jedi Guardian within you, and it is time I showed you that path.

If your alignment is neutral or light (> 39):

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I want you to teach me the ways of the Force. To become a Jedi Knight like my mother.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. If I were to train you, then I might harm you - and I would not wish that.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I... am not a Jedi Knight. Ask it of Atris. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
5. The Jedi are dead - there is only me, and the truth I bring.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Listen to me. I am already committed.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I will not train you as a Jedi, but only in the ways of the Force. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. Then I will teach you what I know of the Jedi. Is that what you want?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If you seek training, I shall train you - not as a Jedi, but only in the ways of the Force. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
6. Let me teach you to harness the hollow places inside yourself - and use it for your own power.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: That is all I wish.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I want to feel what my mother felt for my father, what ran through my mother's veins when she was one with the Force. I wish to hear what my mother heard as she fought the Mandalorians... until the moment she died on Malachor V.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then know this - you have the makings of a Jedi Guardian within you, and it is time I showed you that path.

Regardless of your alignment:

Breaking the Oath
Breaking the Oath
Taught the Handmaiden the ways of the Force
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I will not let you down, exile. I will honor you, as I honor the face of my mother.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [The Handmaiden has been seduced along the path of a Dark Jedi Guardian. She will grow in power as she travels with you.] KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [The Handmaiden has taken her first steps on the path of the Jedi Guardian. She will grow in ability as she travels with you.]
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: :: Betrayal. ::

Meanwhile, Atris is walking up the stairs exiting the meeting chamber of the secret academy on Telos, returning to her meditation chamber, when she stops and turns as if she's just heard something:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Betrayal.

When you next exit the Ebon Hawk and add the Handmaiden to your party, you can now level her up as a Jedi Guardian!

Visas[edit]

Once Visas has joined your party and you have at least 15 more Influence with her than the Handmaiden, when you board the Ebon Hawk the latter confronts the former in the starboard dormitory:

KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: That is how flesh and blood fights. Let me show you how one fights when one's life is the Force.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I won't let you harm him. I have heard of your kind... you worship strength, when all it does is rot you from within.

You can now ask HK-47 if he knows what love is for the Cupid's Rifle Steam achievement. Once Mira joins your party, she walks and talks with the Handmaiden afterwards:

KotORII Icon Mira.png Mira: I don't know what the two of you are arguing about. I caught him, he's mine.

However, once you have at least 30 more Influence with Visas, your relationship with the Handmaiden is damaged beyond repair. The simplest way to unlock HK-47's dialog while avoiding this is to gain 70 < Influence < 85 with the Handmaiden (normally 3-4 net influence gains), before gaining and maximizing influence with Visas. Otherwise, when aboard the Ebon Hawk, Kreia speaks to her in the cargo hold:

KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Something troubles you, servant of Atris.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Leave me be.

The next time you speak to her:

KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Why are you here?
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Because I believe she can be saved.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. It is because... her wound is similar to mine. It is difficult to express.
Influence Gained: Visas
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. And you would not sacrifice me to Atris if Atris ordered it?
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: Is that something that she told you? If that is what you believe, then what I say does not matter.
