File:KotOR Map Polar Plateau.png
Map of the polar plateau

After HK-50s arrived too late at the Underground Base, but managed to track your shuttle's movement across the shield network, the unit dispatched to the polar region with your last known coordinates and approximate path awaits you on the polar plateau, and shoots down your shuttle!

The shuttle crashes on the west side of the plateau. In the aftermath, you, Atton and Kreia lie in the snow outside to the north of the shuttle and, as you all get to your feet, the three HK-50s to the north speak:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Irritated Declaration: There you are. It has been extremely difficult to track you down, Jedi.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Quick Clarification: But now that we have found you, we hope that we can facilitate communications.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Unnecessary Addendum: And put an end... to hostilities.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. If you want a fight, then come on. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Destroying one of you was easy... wiping out three of you might cause me to break a sweat.

All three can use Power Blast, which trebles damage on a critical hit. They're too far apart for grenades to affect more than one of them, but if you or Kreia can use Disable or Destroy Droid on the one in the middle then all three will be affected, and Atton can make Sneak Attacks on any stunned droids. Otherwise, since they're all ranged attackers, using melee weapons can improve chance to hit once the distance has been closed.

  • HK Control Cluster
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: HK-50 (3)
  •  ?

This control cluster looks like it was singed by blaster fire, but it looks like the durasteel shell surrounding kept it intact despite the damage.

Bao-Dur lies in the snow at the southeast corner of the shuttle:

[Bao-Dur looks as if he was knocked unconscious by the explosion - if you can find refuge, then he should recover in time.]

Further to the southeast is a turbolift that can take you down into the polar plateau interior. Save game, as there can be a lot of dialog upon entering: after doing so, two figures dressed in white and armed with quarterstaves approach and stand over Bao-Dur...

Polar Plateau Interior[edit]

Having taken the turbolift down from the polar plateau with Atton and Kreia, you're met by a Handmaiden and two of her sisters in the entrance chamber below:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Lay down your weapons and you shall not be harmed.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
2. All right - we mean no harm.

Avoid that response, as it may cause a glitch that prevents you from leaving. Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Who are you? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm not giving up my weapons. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. Take my weapons and you die.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: I will not warn you again. Drop your weapons, or we shall take them from you.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Do as they say... I sense we will come to no harm.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. No one disarms me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If they wish a fight, I will give them one. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +1
4. Very well. I did not come here to do battle.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: The loss of your weapons shall be a temporary thing only - and it is necessary. There is much to be gained here... without violence.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll play along... for now.

Atton and Kreia are taken from the entrance chamber and imprisoned in cages to the west: Bao-Dur lies, still unconscious, in another beside theirs. Atton and Kreia speak:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Why is it that everywhere we go I end up in a cell? I mean, why did they lock us up? What is this place?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: It is a training ground. For Jedi.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: More Jedi speak. Care to explain?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: No - I have wasted enough time with you. Sleep, murderer - and be silent. I need no distractions. A critical moment approaches.

Lost Jedi[edit]

Meanwhile, you exit the entrance chamber to the east and go up a walkway to the meeting chamber, where a woman named Atris meets you after coming down a walkway from her meditation chamber, even further to the east.

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I did not expect to see you again after the day of your sentencing. I thought you had taken the exile's path, wandering the galaxy. Yet you have returned - why?
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Tell me what you've done with my friends first.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. I want my property - my slaves and my ship - returned.

You can debate the Jedi Council's decision to exile you with Atris, ask her about the Ebon Hawk, and tell her you're here for revenge to move closer to the dark side of the Force.

Atris[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. It was not my intention to come here, Atris - or see you again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. If you think I wanted to see your face again, you're sadly mistaken.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Yet here you are. Perhaps you do not know yourself as well as you think. Regardless, your arrival here begs an explanation. Have you come to face the judgment of the Council, as you did so many years ago? Are you finally willing to admit that we were right to cast you out?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 8. I'm not here to debate the Council's decision. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
9. I'm here for revenge, nothing more.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Indeed? Very well. Your exile has given you some wisdom at least. So then, answer me - how did you find this place? And why have you returned after all this time?

Saying you're not here to debate the Council's decision at any time returns you to the remainder of your first dialog options. Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. But the Republic asked the Jedi for aid. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. I did so for the Republic's sake, not Revan's.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Republic asked the Jedi Order for aid against the Mandalorians, that much is true. Yet that aid did not mean rushing into battle - giving in to aggression, your hate, your passions.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. The Council wanted to assess the threat, while people were dying by the millions. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
6. Better to go to war than be ruled by cowardice.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. I'd follow Revan over the Jedi any day.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So you said, so long ago. I didn't believe it, then, and I don't believe it now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So you said, so long ago. And look where it has led you.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The Council exiled me out of fear... of Revan, of me, and of what we represented. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
5. I could not stand by and allow innocents to die in the Outer Rim.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
7. I deserved exile. I was no longer a Jedi.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So you said, so long ago. I didn't believe it, then, and I don't believe it now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Of course you were no Jedi. No Jedi behaved as you do. No Jedi would wish to behave as you do.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You sought adventure, you hungered for battle. You could not wait to follow Revan to war.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Maybe you should admit that it was the Council's decisions that led to the Jedi Civil War. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
6. They were right - Jedi do not go to war, no matter what the reasons.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You, and all the Jedi who followed Revan, caused the Jedi Civil War - it was because the need to wage war burned within you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Echoing the words means nothing unless you hear the source. I am not certain you have learned what the Jedi strove to teach you.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Jedi Order asked only for time to examine the Mandalorian threat. They urged caution, patience. And you defied them. So when you returned, you were brought before us. You were a Jedi no longer. And so you were exiled.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I also recall you wished me imprisoned... or worse. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. My punishment could have been worse. For that, I am grateful.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I remember now, you do not need to remind me again. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
4. I realize now you and the Council were merciful.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I wish to earn the right to carry my lightsaber again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If I became a Jedi again, would you return it to me? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Whatever your reasons, I want it back. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Insult to the Order? You insult me by carrying it. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
5. Give that blade back, or I'll tear it from your dead hands.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. I went to war to protect others, not for battle.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. The Council was weak and ruled by fear.
Awareness > 15
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Awareness] Your anger... is it because you secretly wish you'd had the strength to follow me to war?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: What? What do you mean?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I can see it in you - you wanted to fight by my side. But you were too scared to defy the Council. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Then let fear guide you, Atris, wherever it leads. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If you cannot grasp the truth, then never mind. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I do not wish to speak of this anymore.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You are wrong, just as you were when you defied the Council.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. The Republic is the one that should have died at Malachor V.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So answer me. If you can not seem to admit the Council was correct, then why are you here?

In every case, that now returns you to the remainder of your first dialog options.

Ebon Hawk[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. I am looking for my ship so I can leave Telos. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I'm here because a pretentious schutta stole my ship.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
7. Give me my ship, or I'll murder everyone here.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 8. If you don't return my ship, I will take it back. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 9. The Ebon Hawk isn't yours, Atris. Return it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Not after you become one with the Force, you won't. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I won't allow you to put me on trial again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I've had enough of this - and you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: It was too much to hope that you may have come here to finally admit the Council was right.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm taking my ship back. Try to stop me and you'll regret it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Just give me my ship, and I will depart.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. [Lie] The destruction of Peragus was an accident.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. I wish I'd blown up that rock cluster, but it wasn't my fault.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. [Lie] Peragus? I've never heard of it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The destruction of Peragus was an accident. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Of course I destroyed Peragus. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
7. I've never even heard of Peragus.
Intelligence > 12 KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. You know me - and know I would not have intentionally committed such an act.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
3. It was not my intention to harm other worlds.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Intelligence] It's almost as bad as the Jedi letting the Outer Rim die during the Mandalorian Wars.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So you still hold to your flawed convictions. If you think to anger me, you are wrong. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I have not known you since you left to serve Revan in the Mandalorian Wars. The only question that remains is how far you have fallen.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: How is it that you are not content to confine your ruin to yourself - you must spread it to others, wherever you go? Ruin yourself with your actions if you will, but when your actions bring harm to others, then you must answer for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. But the Sith attacked me on Peragus - the battle destroyed the colony. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. So now I get blamed for the actions of the Sith? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. My crime? The Sith destroyed Peragus, not me.

Regardless of any initial hostility, mentioning the Sith gives you the chance to end this dialog later on a conciliatory note.

Revenge[edit]

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
7. Revenge. You cast me out, now I've returned.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
5. I'm here for revenge, nothing more.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. This "new threat" you speak of... do you mean the Sith? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. You will deserve your fate when the Sith come for you.

Regardless of initial hostility, mentioning the Sith gives you the chance to end this dialog later on a conciliatory note.

Sith[edit]

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Sith? What do you mean?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I do not think I was followed. KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. If so, then I offer you my help. You'll need it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I just want my ship back. KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
7. Then let me go, and I'll leave you to die.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: We shall see... for now, the perspective on your situation has changed.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I have "your" ship. I will return it to you. You must leave here, before you place us in jeopardy.

If you've told her you don't think you were followed, or her grasp of tactics is... questionable:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Wait... is there anything I could do to help?

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. It wasn't my intention to come here or cause you harm.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
2. If I could have ruined you further, I would have.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Take your ship, then - I don't care where you go, just leave this place, leave Telos.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Lost Jedi
You found one of the Jedi Council, Atris, in a hidden polar academy on Telos. She seemed to think you were responsible for the Sith threat and told you to depart Telos.

Alternatively, if you offer your help:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You offer your aid? After turning your back on me... on the council? The Jedi is not something you embrace out of fear. The commitment is stronger than that, something you never seemed to understand.

If you can also be persuasive:

Persuade > 3
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Then I shall send you on your way... it is now time for you to depart.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Lost Jedi
You found one of the Jedi Council, Atris, in a hidden polar academy on Telos. After some initial hostility, she let you help her gather the Jedi – and re-unite them on the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine.

In either case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: We shall remove him, mistress. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: We shall remove her, mistress.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Come with us.

As the two Handmaiden sisters escort you back to the west exit of the meeting chamber, Handmaiden lingers to ask Atris if she's all right:

Atris exits to the east, returning to her meditation chamber.

Ebon Hawk: Stolen![edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Ebon Hawk: Stolen!
You have discovered that the Ebon Hawk was taken by Atris for reasons unknown. She has returned the ship to you, and you can now leave the polar academy.
