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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Any reason why you shot down my vessel?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Unnecessary Clarification: We merely wished to cripple your vessel. Once we tracked your coordinates, we were able to deploy several droids in this location.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Probing Query: We are, however, curious as to why you chose to come to the remnants of the polar Telos irrigation system. There is nothing here that our instruments can detect.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Eager Threat: But we are looking forward to extracting your motives for coming here when we place you in torture restraints.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What are you assassin droids doing here?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Self-Evident Answer: Wherever you try to run, we will be there, armed and ready.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Rhetorical Query: So the query you have posed to us is one we put to you. What are you doing here, we wonder?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. How many of you are there?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Chiding Statement: Oh, Jedi, there are as many of us as are needed to capture or kill our targets.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Egotistical Boast: And there are far more of us than any one Jedi. Destroy one of us, and more shall rise from the wreckage.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Unnecessary Threat: And our attack protocols are more than a match for you - and your allies.
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.

  • ?

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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What? This ice hole?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Yes, it bears the semblance of an academy... but where are all the students? Curious.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You've got to be joking. What is a Jedi Academy doing out here in the middle of nowhere?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: It is a place hidden from the galaxy, like the academy on Dantooine. But this place... oh, Atris... you have been clever.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Atris?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: It's none of your concern.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Well, the sooner we're outta here, the better. Two crazy Jedi are more than enough for me. No one told me we were going to be dumped in a nest of Jedi.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: And what is it about this place that causes you such fear?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What do you mean? We're in the middle of a bunch of Jedi. You know how they are.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: No, I do not... not in the way you seem to.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What... what are you doing? Get out of my head!
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Stop struggling... let me follow the current, deep... deeper... to its source.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Stop... st... ernhhhh!
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Ah, with the fear... is mingled guilt... it squirms in you like a worm. And the why... ah, and there is its heart. You surprise me - I could not feel it before... your feelings are a powerful shield, indeed.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Do not worry, 'Atton.' If he is a Jedi, he will forgive. And if he is not, he will not care. KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Do not worry, "Atton." If she is Jedi, she will forgive. And if she is not, she will not care.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You can't tell him. Please - I'm asking you. I don't want him to... KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: You can't tell her. Please - I'm asking you. I don't want her to...
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: ...think less of you? I hardly think that's possible. Still, there is no shame in what you ask. We all wage war with the past. And it leaves its scars. I will not speak of yours, Atton, but there is a price for such things.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What? What price?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: There are those who wage war, and those who follow them. You are a crude thing, murderer, but you have your uses.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: You know how important this man we travel with is - even one such as you can feel it. You will serve him... until I release you. KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: You know how important this woman we travel with is - even one such as you can feel it. You will serve her... until I release you.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: And if I refuse?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: You will not. If you do, then my silence will be broken. And then, Atton, you will be broken. You fear the Jedi and rightly so. If Atris learns of your... choices, you will never leave this place. But whatever fear you hold of the Jedi, know that if you disobey me, that my punishment will make you beg for the death that has long hounded you. Wipe the fear from your mind. You will not find blind obedience a difficult Master... you chose it once. You will learn to embrace it again.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I don't know how you became such a manipulative witch, but why a vicious old scow like yourself would even bother with me is a bigger mystery.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: No game of dejarik can be won without pawns... and this may prove to be a very long game. You are a slippery one, your thoughts difficult for even one such as I to read. I suspect the self-loathing that squirms within you gives you a curious strength. Your spirit, as diseased as it is, refuses to allow you to give up, no matter what threats you face... and whatever wreckage you leave behind you. I feel you have crossed our path for a reason... perhaps even you, at the right moment, may be able to turn aside disaster. If so, your potential is not yet spent.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Fine. I'll be your pawn. But I still think you've got the wrong man.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Perhaps. But someone has to fly the ship. And the Force is a hard thing to predict. You have crossed our path for a reason. Our path brought us here for a reason... and now I know why. The past is here, and it must be met before the future can be set in motion.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Your concern is noted... your friends have not been harmed. They have been detained, for their safety. I find it... unusual... that you are traveling with others again. I had thought you had forsaken the company of others after the war. Or is that why you are here? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Your... slaves have been detained, for their safety. Though if that is how you treat them, I imagine they would prefer cells to your company. But you have not answered my question. Why are you here? The Order and you parted ways long ago, and the Order was the better for it.

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:

Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The Force brought me here.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You presume much. The Force does not guide your movements, not any more. Its connection was lost when you fell. Perhaps you feel that the Force also led you to the Mandalorian Wars, as well. But in truth it only led to your exile.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Refresh my memory - why did the Council cast me out?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Why? Because you turned your back on us... and the Order. You followed Revan to war against the Mandalorians. The very war that made Revan a Lord of the Sith... and ruined you.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: There was much about that day that was difficult to forget - your words, your defiance - and when you stabbed your lightsaber into the center stone. I have kept it - so I would never forget.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. That's my lightsaber! KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I was no longer a Jedi... it was no longer mine. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. It was your right to do so - I no longer deserved to. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I did not realize you still had it after so many years. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Kept it? Stole it, you mean.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Indeed. A lightsaber is the mark of a Jedi. When you turned your back on the Order, it was not yours anymore.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I have always kept it, as a reminder of what can happen when your passions dictate your actions. I have kept it, so I would never forget your arrogance or your insult to the Order.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Become a Jedi again? That is a thing far out of reach. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: It is not yours. It is a symbol of something greater, which you no longer represent. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Then you misunderstand its meaning while it is in my possession - and what it now represents. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So... you would fight me for it? You are not far removed from the monster who left the Order so long ago.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: But I am not unsympathetic to your feelings. Leaving the Order must have been difficult for you.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Keep it, then. I could care less.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I suspected as much. You cared nothing for the trappings of the Jedi... and you cared nothing for the Order, even on that final day you came before us.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Yet you gave the Council no other choice. You gave me no other choice.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I had no other choice but to go to war!
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Life is filled with choices. And when you are forced to make one, you have the Jedi teachings to guide you.
KotOR Icon Light.png Light Side Points Gained: +2
2. I went to war to protect others, not for battle.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So your choice was to meet the aggression of the Mandalorians with more aggression? That is not the Jedi way!
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. And the Council's way was to meet aggression with surrender? I'll take my choice any day. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Is the Jedi way to let people be massacred? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I told you. It was not aggression - I was defending others. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. It was for a just cause. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. The Mandalorians were butchering innocent worlds, worlds that we had sworn to protect.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
3. The Council was weak and ruled by fear.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: And you were ruled by hate and aggression! That is not the way of a Jedi!
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. It was my choice, and I chose battle - gladly. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If being a Jedi means surrendering, I choose not to be a Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. The Mandalorians deserved to be met in battle.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Every choice we make, whether we know it or not, sends echoes through the Force. It can awaken feelings, ignite passions, hate, anger, fear - where none existed before. By meeting aggression, by serving as an opponent against which the Mandalorians could test themselves, you fed their hate, their lust for war. And it sent a terrible echo through you. And because of it, you and those Jedi who met them on the battlefield lost their way... and you turned on us.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Were you not tempted to help the innocent? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I did not lose myself there - I found myself. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. I lost nothing in the war. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I would make the same choice again.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Of course I was. But the Jedi teachings require we examine how we may best help them - action without reflection is not our way. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: No, you lost yourself and you lost your way. It is the price of action without reflection... it is what we were taught as Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Then you would die a second death. Such is the price of action without reflection. It is what we were taught as Jedi.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Revan and Malak turned on you, not I.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Without you and the other fallen Jedi to support them, to feed their lust for war, Revan and Malak's crusade would have been over before it began.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Then you know nothing of what drove me... or Revan. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If the Jedi had backed us, there never would have been a Civil War! KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Abandoning fellow Jedi fighting a just war is not my way.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I know you betrayed the Jedi teachings. All that you had been taught, you threw at your feet and crushed them beneath your heel. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You betrayed the Jedi teachings! All that you had been taught, you threw at your feet and crushed them beneath your heel.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Jedi teachings require we examine our actions... acting without reflection is not our way.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. So you were content to let the Outer Rim die? For the sake of teachings? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell that to the millions who died in the war... lives we could have saved, if the Jedi had acted earlier. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Our teachings do not mean we should stand by and watch others die. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Hesitation and passivity are also strong emotions - ones we should guard against.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: There was no guarantee that marching to war would have saved the Outer Rim. In fact, quite the opposite.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. If we had not fought, the Republic would have fallen. That is a fact. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Even the Mandalorians admit that Revan turned them back. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. No, there was no guarantee we would win. But if we had not acted, the Mandalorians would now rule the Republic. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Have you been reading the history of the blind? Revan. Won. The. War. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. We could have waited, but defeating the Mandalorians after they had won would have been difficult.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: A physical victory perhaps, but the real victory lay in t- KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: There are victories other than physical ones. The real victory lay in th-
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. ...the triumph of pacifism? Surrender?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Do not twist my words. A physical victory is not the only victory... or the only loss.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Your words would have rung hollow if the Mandalorians had crushed the Republic and conquered the galaxy. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If we had not acted, thousands of worlds would have been pillaged and burned of life. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Nice words... but if we listened to you, we'd be hearing it in Mandalorian right now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. If you trust only in the Force to settle events and disregard the need to act, then the Mandalorians would rule the galaxy.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. And how many people would have died if the Mandalorians hadn't been stopped? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If we hadn't stopped them, the Republic would have been destroyed. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. The triumph of the Jedi teachings is a cold thing when there is no one left alive to appreciate them.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You do not kno-
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. If the Mandalorians had won, would the Jedi have fought then? Or simply have meditated on what to do? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Oh, please. Anyone who stepped outside the Jedi Archives would know it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I have only my experiences to guide me - and they tell me you and the Council were wrong. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You are correct - I do not know. And neither do you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: How dare you? The Mandalorian Wars should have been your grave and Malachor V is where you should have died!
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: And that would have pleased you? So be it.

Otherwise:

Awareness < 10 Awareness 10-15 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Careful, Atris - anger leads to the dark side. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You know nothing of what happened at Malachor V, so be silent.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I did nothing to you - yet you hate me, I can feel it. Why? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Awareness] At last it comes out. Was it always this personal with you?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You see shadows where there are none, and hate where there is none. You are blind, as always. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: It was only a battle, exile, nothing more. You had lost the true war long ago.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I tire of... fighting with you. You lust for war, and you always will. And you have succeeded in distracting me from my questions.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. I don't want to re-open any more old wounds, Atris - let us end this. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I think this conversation is over.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: It will never be over. For either of us. But I agree that this discussion is pointless.
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.

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Your ship - ah, the Ebon Hawk? It is not your ship. Unless you are admitting to the destruction of the Peragus mining facility.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Look, do you have my ship or not? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. Are you admitting to stealing the Ebon Hawk?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Ebon Hawk is here, safe. Its records and navicomputer are being dissected to determine what caused the destruction of the Peragus facility.
Repair > 0 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. When can it be returned to me? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. What gave you the right to take it?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Repair] Good luck with the navicomputer - you're wasting your time. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. So you did steal my ship.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: We are having some trouble with the navicomputer... but I think with your cooperation, willing or otherwise, that will cease to be an obstacle. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I want my ship back. Now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The destruction of Peragus gave me the right.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: If it is your ship, perhaps I should be questioning you as to what happened - and why you destroyed the facility and murdered all the miners stationed there.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. All the miners were already dead!
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: A facility of over one hundred and fifty personnel - all dead before you arrived. A childish story to mask your crime. And with the facility destroyed, you think there is no way to confirm your story. But I will pry the truth from you, I promise you that.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: At last your true nature shows its face. Serving with Revan truly corrupted you. I promise you this, murderer... I will see you tried and punished for what you have done. This is not the Jedi Council anymore - it is I who is judging you, and I will see justice done. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Again, you insist it is your ship. But it has had many owners, which I am sure you are aware. You have no claim over it - even if you did, the destruction you have already caused demands that you be tried and punished for what you have done.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. That's my lightsaber! KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Where did you get that?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: A lightsaber is the mark of a Jedi. When you turned your back on the Order, it was not yours anymore. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I have always kept it, as a reminder of what can happen when your passions dictate your actions. I have kept it, so I would never forget your arrogance and your insult to the Order.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I want that blade back - and I don't want to fight you for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You do not wish to fight for it? You surprise me. If you do not wish to fight, then answer my questions. What - happened - at - Peragus?
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Ah... an accident. Something beyond your control. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So, at last you admit it. At least you have that much courage left. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You will drown in lies before the day is done, it seems. Your admission is irrelevant - the guilt is thick on you.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Peragus' destruction was necessary. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. I admit nothing.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Necessary? The destruction of Peragus was necessary? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Of course you admit nothing. That would require facing and examining your actions.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You have not changed. Acting instead of thinking. Putting yourself before the galaxy, before the Jedi. Do you know what you have done?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Why don't you tell me? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Yeah, I destroyed two worlds with one explosion. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I know it put Telos in jeopardy, but I had no choice. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Yes, yes, Telos is doomed, and I could care less. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Peragus was nothing compared to what I'll do if you don't give me back my ship.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: No, your crime is much more than that. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The ship... and your freedom... is no longer yours. You and your ship will be detained here, pending an investigation and a trial.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Without the fuel from Peragus, Citadel Station cannot maintain its orbit. It will crash into the planet, and its destruction will echo across twenty other worlds.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Why is Telos so important? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. So what? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Twenty worlds with one explosion? Even better.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Telos was a test, to see if the Republic could mount a restoration effort on the Outer Rim. When it fails, the Republic will not finance another. The other Rim worlds devastated by the Sith will remain graveyard worlds, devoid of life. And that is the magnitude of your crime. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You have indeed become a monster, to view such events so callously.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Indeed? And how do you plan to seek your revenge on me? Or do you intend to take revenge on all the council as well?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Killing you will be enough for now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Does the council still live? If so, then they're next. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll kill every Jedi I can find.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: So... it is as I suspected. You have already done enough. The dead Jedi, the murders - you have much to answer for, monster.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Dead Jedi? What is this nonsense? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Murders? I have killed no Jedi - yet.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Jedi across the galaxy have been slain or have vanished. A darkness devours them, a new force shrouded by the power of the dark side. You are allied with them, as I suspected. You shall answer for your crimes, after I tear the knowledge of this new threat from you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. You have accused me falsely - again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I know nothing of these dead Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Try it, and you'll regret it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You would say anything to avoid judgment... yet... I sense, somehow, that you speak truthfully. You are indeed ignorant of these events, or but a pawn.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Watch your words. I am neither ignorant... or patient. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. And you are a fool. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. So you admit your mistake? Maybe you and the Council made a mistake when you exiled me, too.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Arrogant as always, even against the truths the galaxy throws at you. The Council was right to banish you - and you were wrong to return. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: We made no mistake. You deserved your fate.
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?
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The Sith have returned... and they are hunting all Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. You'll find out when their hand is at your throat. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The Sith came for me on Peragus, to kill me.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You speak truly... you have encountered the Sith. I can feel the scars on you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Tell me - where did you encounter them? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: And you encountered them on Peragus? But what would they want there? They can't have been looking for you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The Sith came for me on Peragus, to kill me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If you seized my ship, you'd know I was at Peragus... and so were they. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I encountered them on Peragus.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Peragus... what would they want there? They can't have been looking for you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The Sith believe me to be the last Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I was the only Jedi they could find. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. The fools thought me a Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. Since you were hiding, they came after a real Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. They didn't realize I'd left the Jedi behind.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You? If they thought you a Jedi, the teachings of the Sith blind them, indeed. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: If you were the best target they could find, the teachings of the dark side blind the Sith, indeed.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I am the last Jedi, not you. You betrayed our teachings, our beliefs... the very core of the Jedi Order.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. They intend to exterminate all Jedi, everywhere. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't know. Perhaps they were.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: There are no more Jedi... except I. Like you, they turned from the Order, and now only I remain. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: If they sought a target, they would have hunted me, not you. But the blindness of the dark side is well known.

In every case:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: If these Sith attacked you, they will soon realize their mistake. And if you escaped... they most likely let you go, to see if you would lead them here.
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:

Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. There must be other Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Were there any survivors of the Jedi Civil War?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I said I was the last of the Jedi, exile, and I did not speak falsely. There are others who were once Jedi, but no longer. They will not take action against this threat.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. And you will? There's a change. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. But I could track them down, maybe change their minds. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Then there is nothing to be done. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Very well... then give me my ship back, and I will depart. You can face this threat alone.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. They're stronger than you think. At least one Sith Lord stands with them... and they fight differently than the Sith from the Jedi Civil War.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Whatever force they can bring to bear, it will matter not - if they face a true Jedi, they shall fall.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Your grasp of tactics is... questionable. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. How can I help? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Are there other Jedi we can ask for help?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: We shall see... for now, the perspective on your situation has changed.
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.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Yet here you are, and you bring tragedy with you once again. It was too much to hope that you may have come here to finally admit the Council was right. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: I'm sure you would have. You have grown colder and more monstrous outside of Revan's shadow than you ever did in the war. Why did you even return? To challenge the Council's decision on your exile? To defend your betrayal?

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Where can I find my companions?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You shall find them north of here, in one of the old irrigation chambers. They have not been harmed... they are free to leave as well.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. No arguments here. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Fine - I'll be on my way. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. They'd better be - and if you steal from me again, you'll regret it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The sooner I'm out of here, the better. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Then I'll be going now.
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.
Dialog
Persuade < 4 KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If you think I act out of fear, then it's obvious you've never understood me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I offer my help, and you insult me? Forget it, then.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Persuade] I am not doing this out of fear - I want to help. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. [Persuade] You can't do this alone; I offer my assistance.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: [Failure] I need nothing from you... except your departure from this place. I was wrong to even permit you to remain this long. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Nor would I wish to. I need nothing from you... except your departure from this place. I was wrong to even permit you to remain this long. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: Your help comes with too high a price. I need nothing from you... except your departure from this place.

If you can also be persuasive:

Persuade > 3
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Persuade] But I always understood war. And that's who you need. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. [Persuade] The Sith have numbers on their side. You'll need all the allies you can get, Jedi or not. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [Persuade] I am not doing this out of fear - I want to help. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. [Persuade] You can't do this alone; I offer my assistance.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: [Success] Perhaps... but if you help me, it cannot be done from here. There are others in the galaxy who may help us against a Sith threat. If you can find them, gain their trust, perhaps our defenses shall be stronger for it. Take your ship, seek them out. If you find them, encourage them to gather on Dantooine - from there, we can call a council and see what can be done.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Where can I find my companions?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: You shall find them north of here, in one of the old irrigation chambers. They have not been harmed... they are free to leave as well.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I will see what I can do. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If there is anyone who can aid us, I will find them. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I'll gather what help I can and assemble them on Dantooine. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. No arguments here. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Fine - I'll be on my way.
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:

Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Are you all right, mistress?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The exile reminded me of something... I had forgotten.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Forgive me, mistress... but I must ask. The exile... I have never seen another effect you so strongly.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Was she important to you, once? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Did you care for him once?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: We all have our heroes. And when we watch them fall, we die inside. She made a choice once... and I did not. The day we judged her, I stood in the chamber, and she was... she was so right. She was so certain of it, I doubted myself. But not now. She will never make me doubt myself again. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: The Jedi have no such attachments. As always, he will do as he wills, and the galaxy... and the feelings of others... can burn for all he cares. The day we judged him, I stood in the chamber, and he was... he was so right. He was so certain of it, I doubted myself. He chose Revan over the Jedi, over the Council... over...
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Atris: But now... now I am tired. I must meditate.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Handmaiden: Of course, mistress. I will tell the others you are not to be disturbed. And... please, do not exhaust yourself. We can attend to matters here.

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.
