Map of the Trayus academy

Malachor Depths[edit]

As you enter the bottom end of the Trayus academy from the depths once Bao-Dur's remote has activated the Mass Shadow Generator, Darth Sion strides into its top end from the Trayus core. Six Sith assassins decloak and kneel around him as Kreia speaks telepathically:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Kreia: :: When the exile enters Trayus Academy, he will be faced with a choice. :: KotORII Icon Dialog.png Kreia: :: When the exile enters the Trayus Academy, she will be faced with a choice. ::

The Sith assassins rise and cloak:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Kreia: :: Show him every respect when he arrives in these halls, Lord Sion. This I command you. :: KotORII Icon Dialog.png Kreia: :: Show her every respect when she arrives in these halls, Lord Sion. This I command you. ::

Meanwhile, you face an elite Sith assassin at the bottom end of the academy's antechamber:

Antechamber[edit]

There's nothing of interest down any of the halls lining either side of the antechamber, except for those at the very top. Three Sith assassins guard the top end of the antechamber, and three more guard each of the doors in the top left and right halls.

This is the choice Kreia told Darth Sion you would face: to get to the Trayus core at the top end of the academy, you can go through the Trayus prison (renamed Trayus Crescent) on the left side, or the Trayus Proving Grounds on the right side. The choice isn't actually meaningful (without the Restored Content Mod, at least) and you can do both, but this isn't necessary. The proving grounds do contain a Workbench, though...

Trayus Prison[edit]

Behind the door in the top left wall of the academy's antechamber is a short corridor to another door, beyond which is the top right end of a curved corridor, guarded by three Sith assassins, with two more midway down.

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

This curved corridor continues beyond the door at the bottom left end, where the top left end of the lower section is guarded by a male and female dark Jedi apprentice with three Sith assassins, with two more by a metal box at the bottom right end.

Beyond the door in this room's bottom left wall is the central chamber where you'll confront Darth Sion.

Darth Sion[edit]

The central chamber in the top part of the Trayus academy is pillared and has doors in its left, right and top walls. Save game before approaching the door to the Trayus core in the top wall, as when you do so Darth Sion appears behind you. If your character is female:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You should not have come to Malachor. She will break you, your mind, your body... you will be lost. Return to the surface, let the planet claim you, as it claimed the other Jedi... there is no reason for you to suffer at her hands.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Kreia is using you, Sion... using us.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Turn aside, then - deny her what she wants. She will accept my loyalty again, for she will have no other choice.
Persuade 1. [Persuade/Lie (17)] Sion, there is no reason for us to fight - together, we can stop Kreia. Persuade 3. [Persuade (17)] She has already abandoned you, Sion. You know it.
Persuade 2. [Persuade (17)] Sion, there is no reason for us to fight - together, we can stop Kreia.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] She... cannot be defeated. Even if she could, we would both be destroyed before she would surrender her life a second time. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] You... are wrong. I have come farther than any of her apprentices since Revan... even you... and I am stronger for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Do her teachings include cowardice? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. If you believe we will fail, then we will, but I believe we can succeed. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Join me, Sion. Together, we can defeat her. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I can hear it in your voice - you know she is finished with you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You seek to erode my will. You will not succeed. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You seek to weaken me, to erode my will. You will not succeed.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have eroded Sion's will, reducing his Will saves, Constitution, and Wisdom.]
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I am ready for you, exile. I have waited years to see the last of the Jedi fall before me. Only one may serve my Master.

He engages you in combat. Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] You were once Jedi... and you care nothing for those of the Sith. I shall not betray her to you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] You are wrong. She respects power... I have come farther than any of her apprentices since Revan, and I am stronger for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] She cannot be stopped, and through her teachings, there is truth - if we were to challenge her, we would die.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. [Persuade] You betrayed her once and failed. She has no use for you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] My betrayal was another test. I have passed, and I have become stronger for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Are you showing me mercy?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It is not mercy. What awaits you will weaken you. She will break you, as she did me, and you will no longer know yourself.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. You are right to fear me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Or perhaps you fear what I will become.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I fear no one, for while the Force is with me I yet live.

Asking the following can also give you a chance to be persuasive:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Why are you telling me this?
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You and her are alike... yet different, in all the ways that matter. And I hate you as I hate her. I hate you because you crawl within my head as she does, but your presence holds no thoughts, no teachings, you are just... there, unspoken. I hate you because you are beautiful to me. And in that weakness lies death. Perhaps in that weakness is the death of my master, as well.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What is Kreia's weakness, Sion?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: What it has always been. Her weakness is you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Kreia told me your will is what holds you together.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: The power of the dark side is what holds me together. Many times have I been near death - and always have I been in pain.
Awareness 3. [Awareness (18)] You can turn away from the Force, Sion, as I did. It holds you here. Let go.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: One cannot abandon the Force, any more than one can abandon one's will.

Otherwise:

Persuade 4. [Persuade (17)] Lie: Sion, we need not battle - you have been a presence in my mind as well. Persuade 5. [Persuade (17)] Truth: Sion, we need not battle - you have been a presence in my mind as well.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] I have trained in the halls of Darth Traya, listened to her teachings, and have learned much of deception.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] Then turn from this place. Do not go to her. Preserve yourself.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have eroded Sion's will, reducing his Will saves, Constitution, and Wisdom.]
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You are strong... I cannot see as she does, but I know, that in time, you shall surpass her power. But not here, not in this place.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Where is Kreia, Sion? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. What is this place?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: She awaits on the Trayus Core in the heart of this planet... but you will never reach her.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I'm not turning back. Stand aside.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I cannot. If you pass, you shall not return as you are now. Return to Malachor - or go through me. There is no middle ground.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 8. And there is no reason for me not to kill you. Are you ready to die? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. We'll see about that. Ready to die? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Then let us end this. I bear no hatred for you, Sion, but I must pass.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I am ready for you, exile. I have waited years to see the last of the Jedi fall before me, to join the rest that lie buried within this planet's core. The end of the Jedi is at hand.

He engages you in combat. Otherwise, if you character is male:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: So you have come to die, like the Jedi before you. This planet is a graveyard for your kind. She thinks you should be spared, but only so you might suffer. You will break. And when you do, you will die. Why she would bother with one such as you is something I will never understand.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What is this place?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It is ancient, a relic that survived the destruction of Malachor. It was always here, far before the Mandalorian Wars. It draws death and hate to it, channels it. Atrocities feed its power, and with its power, it creates hunger. Many Jedi have been consumed by it.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Enough talking. Prepare to die. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Enough talking. Are you ready to die?

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. But where did it come from?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It has been here for thousands of years. It is a place where the Sith teachings run strong... it is the threshold of the borders of an ancient empire. Kreia says it was a place of reflection for the ancient Sith... a gateway to their lands. It drew Lord Revan... and it calls to her as well. She said that the teachings here will lead one to the Sith... the true Sith... and all their shadowed worlds. This place led Revan to the graveyards of Korriban... and beyond.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What happened to Revan? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you know what happened to Revan?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It does not matter. The Lord Revan had the galaxy at his feet, could have made it strong, and he surrendered it to weakness. Like you, Revan touched power and turned away. The chance to heal this fractured galaxy, and he turned away. I was there when the Academy on Korriban fell... and the Sith turned on one another, like beasts. Our chance at an empire... destroyed by Revan.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Where is Kreia, Sion?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: She awaits on the Trayus Core - the heart of this planet. But you will never reach her.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Kreia values me as a teacher values her student.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You know nothing of her teachings, nothing of pain. You saw Malachor V and turned away. You turned away from power. She is a fool to see greatness in that.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Your master is using you. She hopes I will kill you here, as a test of my strength.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Then it shall be proof that you are not the one she seeks... and she shall accept my loyalty again.
Persuade 1. [Persuade (17)] She has already abandoned you, Sion. You know it. Persuade 2. [Persuade (17)] You betrayed her once and failed. She has no use for you.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] You are wrong. She respects power... I have come farther than any of her apprentices since Revan, and I am stronger for it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] My betrayal was another test. I have passed, and I have become stronger for it.

Otherwise you succeed in eroding his will, despite what he says:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] You... are wrong. I have come farther than any of her apprentices since Revan... even you... and I am stronger for it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I can hear it in your voice - you know she is finished with you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Join me, Sion. Together, we can defeat her.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You seek to erode my will. You will not succeed.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Let us end this. I bear no hatred for you, but I must pass. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Enough threats. Are you ready to die? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have eroded Sion's will, reducing his Will saves, Constitution, and Wisdom.]
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I am ready for you, exile. I have waited years to see the last of the Jedi fall before me. Only one may serve my Master.

He engages you in combat, and all doors are closed and locked until you defeat him. If you haven't eroded his will with persuasion:

Master Force Scream 43 Drain Life Kill 38 Advanced Throw Lightsaber Burst of Speed

He has Force Immunity: Stun, and rarely if ever uses Critical Strike or Force powers other than Drain Life.

Otherwise, each time you erode his will with successful persuasion you reduce his Will saves (-3), Constitution (-6), and Wisdom (-1), with the following results:

Persuade Constitution Vitality Fortitude Wisdom Will Force Power DC Master Force Scream DC Awareness
17 30 (+10) 419 43 19 (+4) 33 392 37 42 24

You must defeat him four times, but you can erode his will again after his second and third defeats (although you must be more persuasive each time to succeed).

First defeat[edit]

Once Darth Sion has been reduced to less than 10 Vitality, he disengages and is restored to maximum Vitality:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Now you realize the true power of the dark side. As long as the dark places of this world flow through the cracks of my flesh, I cannot be killed.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. But you can be defeated.. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. This battle was never about the flesh, it was about belief. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Tell yourself that a hundred times, and I will strike you down a hundred times. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. As long as I stand, I shall drive you back until there is no place left for you to retreat.

You engage in combat again.

Second defeat[edit]

After Darth Sion's second defeat:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You are strong... as strong as I had believed. But she knows you cannot defeat me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You are strong... perhaps she was correct about you. But you cannot kill me. She knows this.
Awareness 1. [Awareness (22)] Kreia respects one who can turn away from power, Sion, not one who is a slave to it. Intelligence 2. [Intelligence (18)] She has chosen me because I gave up the Force - and you could not. Let go, and you will understand. Wisdom 2. [Wisdom (18)] She has chosen me because I gave up the Force - and you could not. Let go, and you will understand.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: There is no life without the Force... the Force is a blade, without it, one is defenseless.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Yet I survived. And I am strong enough to face you now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. The Force is only a part of what life is, Sion. You feel it, but do not understand it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If you are afraid to let go of power, then that is weakness.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: She sought you out because both of you were wounded by the Force - and because she had no choice. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: The Force is pain. The Force is focus. The Force is that which drives the strong and kills the weak. I shall teach you this - and in so doing, spare you the pain that awaits. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Those are the words of Jedi, Jedi who over thousands of years, have never turned from power, from inflicting their will on the galaxy. They know power. The only weakness is not seizing it when it lies before you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: She would not willingly return to being the helpless woman she once was... nor would her apprentice. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: She would not willingly return to being the helpless woman she once was... nor would she wish that of her apprentice.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Surrender now, Sion. I don't want to kill you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Fight or die - but spare me the threats.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: If you will not leave this place, then I cannot allow you to pass. If you go before her, you will be broken. If killing you will spare you what lies ahead, then kill you I must... KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You are the one who will fall. Die, Jedi.

Otherwise:

Persuade 3. [Persuade (21)] She has already chosen, Sion. She's only using you to test me. Persuade 4. [Persuade (21)] You may not die... but she has no use for one who betrayed her.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] If I am the weapon to be used against you, then so be it. But you will die, Jedi. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] Betrayal is at the core of what she is. She knows this, and she respects it. No more words, exile. Now you die.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] Should you die... then she will have no choice but to accept me at her side. My training shall be complete, as was intended.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Do not let her deceive you... and stop deceiving yourself. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. She broke you once, and she will break you again.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You intend to make me doubt her... doubt myself. This is not a battle of words, exile. It is one of blood.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have eroded Sion's will, reducing his Will saves, Constitution, and Wisdom.]

In every case he engages you in combat yet again.

Third defeat[edit]

After Darth Sion's third defeat:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: If I die here, then you will have sealed your fate. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You will not pass.
Persuade 1. [Persuade (27)] Sion, even should you beat me, Kreia has marked you for death. You know this. Persuade 2. [Persuade (27)] I am stronger than you expected - and I am stronger than Kreia expects. Let me confront her, and we shall see.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Success] There is truth in your words... but there is nothing left for me except my master.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. [You have eroded Sion's will, reducing his Will saves, Constitution, and Wisdom.]
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I fight because it is the power that the Force fills me with. To survive, to inflict the pain on others. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I fight because it is the power that the Force fills me with. To... survive, to inflict the pain on others.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] No. It is you that she has marked for death - for suffering. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You're weakening, Sion, I can feel it. Even your control can't keep your body together. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. This is the end for you, Sion. I swear it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: [Failure] No. Even if she believes you the stronger, then I shall prove her wrong. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You only delay the inevitable, Sith Lord. Surrender, and I shall spare you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. I cannot be beaten - serve me, and I shall spare you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I... I still have the power to stop you. The Force runs strong through the screaming canyons of Malachor.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I can die a hundred times, exile, and still I will rise again, as strong as before.

You engage in combat one last time.

Fourth defeat[edit]

After Darth Sion's fourth, and final, defeat he drops to his knees:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I will not fall. I cannot die.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. You have already been defeated, Sion. Surrender, and I will spare you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Get up, Sith Lord, and I will prove to you that you can die. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You have fallen - and you are dead, you only must admit it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Why... why did she choose you? What makes you able to defeat me, defeat me here?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. It is simple. As she did, I was forced to survive without the Force. That is what she respects.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Because I was able to turn away from it. And you could not. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. In giving up the Force, one can gain strengths that would be impossible otherwise.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It is not possible to walk away from such things unscarred. To keep living when the universe dies around you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. The place is not what matters, it is the man. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. It is difficult, yes. But in making such decisions is what strength is. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. To face death and keep standing - it leaves scars, yes. But it leaves room to heal. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. If that is what you believe, you lie to yourself.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: The Force is who I am - the dark side fills me. It is what I am.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. And Kreia hates the Force, even as she wields it. If the Force is what you are, then that is what she despises. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. The Force fills an empty, shattered shell. There is little left of the man you once were - you know this. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. It is possible to live without the Force. And die without it.

Sion just looks at you.

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. It is the truth, Sion... you feel it. Let go. It is not such a terrible thing. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What kind of life have you lived with the Force flowing through you? Was it worth living? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I have beaten you. Admit it, finally, and surrender.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: It... it was not. No matter how many I killed... there was no end to the pain... the blades the Force tore through my flesh. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: You... have defeated me... flesh and belief, both cast down.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Kreia, she will try to break you, to teach you how far someone can fall.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Her weakness... is you. As you were mine. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: Her weakness... is you. She has done all this... all of it... for you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Sion: I am glad to leave this place... at last.
