If your character is dark side (Alignment < 40) when you next travel through the docks on Nar Shaddaa after getting a message from Visquis of the Exchange, then Hanharr becomes your temporary character in the Jekk'Jekk Tarr tunnels, but the first time you can speak to him as follows is if you add him to your party to board Goto's yacht.

However, a few more options are available once you're both aboard the Ebon Hawk, where he paces a circuit around the southern half of the ship.

When you first speak to Hanharr with Alignment 20 or less:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: There is something about you - not a scent, but a feeling - it is decay, like rot within a great tree. Even your appearance has changed - hunters will have a hard time recognizing you now, I think.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Just answer my questions. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Enough with the threats. I need answers from you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Forget it. I'll be going now.

When you first speak to him with Alignment 80 or more:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: There is something wrong with you - it is like you carry... light within you, and it casts fire across your skin. It is a contrast to the Shadowlands around you - it is a fire, a beacon in the darkness, and it makes you a target.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I had questions for you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. We'll see. For now, I will leave you be.

Otherwise, or upon returning:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I thought I smelled your stench... speak, human, then leave me be.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. You will speak to me with respect, or I will break you.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I... will do as you ask.

Once aboard the Ebon Hawk, you can ask him to stop or keep pacing, and why he does it so much:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: What do you want, human?

Questions[edit]

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I care nothing for your questions, and little patience for answers.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Nevertheless, you will hear them and answer them - or else. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I order you to answer me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You will never be free of your debt unless you do.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Then speak them, and leave me be.

You cannot maximize (or minimize) your influence with Hanharr simply by asking questions:

Dialog Influence
0-100 Influence Dark Side Points Gained But still you serve me, as a slave should. Dark Side Points Gained Any human that cannot stand against you 58
25-75 Influence If Mira spared your life, it was likely to humiliate you before others rather than mercy. 66
40 > Influence > 60 Dark Side Points Gained Yet somehow, they were strong enough Dark Side Points Gained Perhaps you are weak 74
30 > Influence > 70 Dark Side Points Gained You lessen an act of slaughter Dark Side Points Gained The only truth is that you killed your tribe 82
20 > Influence > 80 Dark Side Points Gained If you think such deaths bother me Dark Side Points Gained Everyone at Malachor died 90

However, > 80 Influence is all that's required to unlock everything, and this can be achieved with Persuade rank > 9, allowing you to gain experience, and granting you and Hanharr attribute bonuses (and a penalty for Hanharr):

Dialog Influence XP Main character Hanharr
Shackles < 40 > 60 500
Tribe < 30 > 70 500
< 20 > 80 1000 Wisdom: +1
Mira < 25 > 75 1000 Constitution: +1 Constitution: +1
Break 1000 Strength: +2 Intelligence: -2
Kreia Accepted strength 500 Strength: +2 Constitution: +1
Rejected strength 1000 Wisdom: +2

You cannot lose sufficient influence to unlock all of this simply by asking questions but, since this would normally involve moving closer to the light side of the Force and you have to be a dark side character to recruit Hanharr, this isn't recommended anyway (he isn't a Jedi, so his alignment should normally be irrelevant).

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I heard you hunt humans.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. If you continue to cause that suffering, it will never end.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. Not all humans are like the slavers who came to your world - you blame a species for the crimes of a few.
Influence Lost: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Such pain is always on my thoughts, human - and it is meant to be shared. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I have heard tales of the tribe called the Sith - how they were once of the tribe of Jedi, and turned away. Yet the potential for the tribe of the Sith lies within all Jedi. Such is the way of all humans - and why they must all die.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. But still you serve me, as a slave should. You know your place.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
4. Any human that cannot stand against you deserves to die.
Influence Gained: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I respect your strength, and my place is with you as you walk the Shadowlands, but I do not serve you. Know that I watch you, shadow your movements through the dark places in the galaxy. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: That is the way of the predator - and the way of humans, of prey.

You can ask why he made his home on Nar Shaddaa, and about the Shadowlands once he's mentioned them:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Why did you make your home on Nar Shaddaa?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Before, you mentioned the Shadowlands. What did you mean? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Shadowlands?

You can also ask why he uses the term "Jeedai?" once he's used it:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Why do you use the term "Jeedai?"
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: It is how I first heard it - from the mouths of Hutts. It is the way they speak the title of your tribe in their language. They speak it with contempt - but beneath that contempt is fear.

Shackles[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Why do you wear those shackles?
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: They are memories caged upon my wrists. I wear them so I will not forget.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean?
40 > Influence > 60 40-60 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] I have never spoken of such things... but there is strength in chains, these things of metal. They remind me of the tribe of Czer-ka, and what befell my tribe... my people. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] It is not for you to know... human. Even if you heard the words, you would not understand them. I shall one day show you what I see in my heart, and you shall know what is predator and prey, and what sacrifice means.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. What they did to you and your tribe was wrong - life is not a commodity.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. Yet somehow, they were strong enough to cage you - as it should be.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Perhaps you are weak in that you allowed the shackles to be placed at all.
Influence Lost: Disciple Influence Gained: Hanharr
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Influenced Hanharr to say why he wears those shackles

Tribe[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. You can't have been the only slave Czerka took from your world.
30 > Influence > 70 30-70 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] The rest of my tribe are gone, they do not walk in the Shadowlands as I do. I sent them away - by my hand, one by one. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] I am the only one of my tribe to be taken into the Shadowlands - the rest are gone.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean?
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I will not speak of my past or my tribe to you, human - you would hear the words, but not understand... much like Vogga's slaves and killers did not.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. For all the evil you have done, Hanharr, there is hope of redemption for you.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. Even if your tribe cannot forgive you, I will.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. You lessen an act of slaughter by thinking it was salvation.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. The only truth is that you killed your tribe because they were weak - which is what they deserved.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I do not ask for forgiveness, and you cannot grant it. To speak such words is an insult. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Salvation speaks of hope.
Influence Lost: Hanharr Influence Gained: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Such hopes are for the weak. I only seek death, and when that day comes, I will speak to my people again, all as one tribe. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Yes... and I could not bear to see such weakness in them.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I do not wish to walk in the Shadowlands any longer. I wish to walk on top of the trees of my homeworld, and when I die, I shall be there. Yet I am trapped here with you, in this cage, surrounded by the stench of human animals.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Influenced Hanharr to speak of his past and his tribe

You could have gained or lost sufficient influence from your most recent response to immediately succeed with the following, but if you haven't then you can return and ask either of these questions later:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What you did to your people was madness - yet there was strength in it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What you did to your own tribe, Hanharr - it was wrong.
20 > Influence > 80 20-80 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] You think to know my actions, human? Perhaps you know them, better than you realize.Turn your eyes upon your own acts, the deaths you have inflicted upon your tribe, the tribe of the Jeedai. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] Do not think you can ever know me, human. My acts, and my reasons for them, are my own.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
1. And I regret every death, Jedi and Mandalorian, to this day.
Influence Lost: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Such emotions are wasted. Take strength from your act, do not have it weaken you. To bring about the deaths of your brothers and sisters by choice is more powerful than you know... there is greatness in such actions. But not to realize that - it means you have not looked inside yourself for some time.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. If you think such deaths bother me, they do not.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Everyone at Malachor died because they had to - and I would destroy them all again, gladly.
Influence Gained: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: You may think so, Jeedai, but you would be wrong.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: We have spoken about this enough - now you should think upon it, and realize perhaps we are not so different in how we perceive life and death.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have gained +1 Wisdom - and a new perspective about your actions during the Mandalorian Wars.]
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1000 Gained wisdom and a new perspective about your actions during the Mandalorian Wars

Life debt[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. Why do you follow me?
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: My reasons are my own, but know that I shall one day show you what hatred is, and what life is.

If you've only asked him questions then the first time you ask him why he killed Mira he should fail to answer fully, but if you can be persuasive then you have a chance to gain or lose influence.

Mira[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Why did you kill Mira?
25-75 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] Because I was the stronger, and she was the prey. There was no other reason. She was weak, weak behind her eyes, and in her spirit.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. [Persuade] And what weakness about her made you want to kill her?
Persuade > 9 Persuade < 10
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Success] By other hunters, it is said that she spared my life. There is no truth in such words. She spared my life as an insult, to break my spirit. She held my life in her hands, and she cast it away. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Failure] I will not speak of it to you, human, and we will speak about this no more.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Humans don't generally do that as an insult - I think you mistook her intentions. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If Mira spared your life, it was likely to humiliate you before others rather than mercy.
Influence Lost: Hanharr Influence Gained: Hanharr
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I couldn't care less what humans think - among my people, it makes us slaves, and to be a slave to prey - to be shown mercy by prey, is contempt, a blade in the heart. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I do not think you understand, human, but what she did was an... insult, yes.
Awareness > 12
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Awareness] I do not believe you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Awareness] So you had nothing to prove?

Otherwise, once you've gained or lost sufficient influence he answers fully:

25 > Influence > 75 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. I wanted to ask about Mira again - and why you killed her.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] Because I was the stronger. She was prey. Because she saved my life, and she would not let me take hers. So I tore it from her. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I killed her because I was stronger - she was prey. Yet when it was her turn to kill me, she denied me death and made me a slave. And that is why she had to die.

Once you've influenced Hanharr to speak of his past and his tribe after saying he can't have been the only slave Czerka took from his world:

Awareness > 15 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. She did not make you a slave - instead, she denied you freedom, death.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Awareness] I don't believe you. It is not the hunt that drives you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You and Hanharr have formed a new bond, both of you gaining +1 Constitution.]
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1000 Formed a new bond with Hanharr

If you've gained or lost sufficient influence to form this new bond with him, then after asking about his debt you can also break him...

Break[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What debt are you talking about? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The debt you mentioned - what are you talking about? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. Let me ask you about your life debt.

This is your first chance to break Hanharr fully into your service, although if you've only asked him questions then you should fail:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Why do you keep life debts if you hate them? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. You are a fool to let your primitive customs chain your actions.
10-90 Influence 10 > Influence > 90
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] If I give up everything of my people, then the Shadowlands will have my body... and my mind. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] To give up everything of my people... means I will be no longer one of them, even in the place that exists beyond the Shadowlands.

This is your second chance to break him:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then you shall always be prey, Hanharr. You are your own prey, and such things are weakness.
25 > Influence > 75 25-75 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] To give up everything of my people... means I will be no longer one of them, even in the place that exists beyond the Shadowlands. KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] You know nothing of strength, human, and you know little of me. It is the way of prey.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: When I die, I shall become part of the Shadowlands... and never return from my exile. This blackness that surrounds me will be where I die, forever.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have broken Hanharr fully into your service, making him stronger. He has gained +2 Strength and lost -2 Intelligence.]
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -4
Hanharr: Leave me, human. There is nothing more for us to say - only battle, and the death it brings.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 1000 Broke Hanharr's spirit
Laugh It Up, Fuzzball
Laugh It Up, Fuzzball
Broke Hanharr's spirit

Although you're obviously only meant to be able to break him once, you can actually do so every time after repeating the following sequence:

  1. Why do you follow me?
  2. Does that mean you serve me?
  3. The debt you mentioned - what are you talking about?

After breaking him five times, he's reduced from 10 to 0 Intelligence: however, after breaking him a sixth time (which you'd expect to result in -2 Intelligence) he has 254 Intelligence (INT +122). You can continue to break him until he has absolute maximum 255 Strength, including bonuses (256 = 0 Strength), at which point he should still have at least 32 Intelligence (INT +11).

If you want to exploit this, save game before doing so in case you reconsider, or experience unintended consequences.

Strength[edit]

After asking Kreia about Hanharr you can ask him the following, although it isn't necessary since breaking him actually allows you to tell her you've learned the lesson of strength from him:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Hanharr, what is the source of your strength?
25 > Influence > 75 25-75 Influence
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Success] This question has the scent of the old human about it. You ask for her - or for you? KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: [Influence: Failure] You know nothing of strength, human, and you know little of me. It is the way of prey.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: You do not know enough of what drives me, why I wear these shackles, why I hunt. Until you know such things, my answer of strength will mean nothing.

Once you've influenced him to speak of his past and his tribe after saying he can't have been the only slave Czerka took from his world, he answers:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: Already, you know it, I think - your answer is a command, not a question. There is no doubt.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: You know of what happened with my people, when the Czer-ka came upon them. And you know why they fell at my hand.
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I am here... because I must be. There is no choice - debts must be served.

Otherwise, if your character is dark side (Alignment < 40) and you've also formed a new bond after influencing him to tell you why he really killed Mira:

KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I am here because you showed me what chained me, and there is much I may learn from you. There is strength in such things - and you will know this, when you go into the place all exiles go. When you are willing to kill everything you love - and everything that walks and breathes hates you. When you are willing to leave paradise behind, to curse your life for all time. And know that you did to save another. And to show the galaxy what prey is. This is the lesson of strength, human. And it is the only lesson you will learn from me. Now leave me - there is nothing more for me to share with you.

Love[edit]

The following is unlocked after the Handmaiden confronts Visas, or Atton confronts the Disciple, aboard the Ebon Hawk, due to the latter having at least 15 more Influence than the former in either case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Hanharr, do you know what love is?
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: I understand mating. If you want a mate, you fight with her, beside her, and against her. Break her against the Shryykrrr.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. So love is when you are willing to end yourself for another?
KotORII Icon Hanharr.png Hanharr: And they are willing to do the same. When you accept that you must give up everything for another... that is what must be. Whatever mate you take, they will understand such things - and it may be that they already know it, without words.
