File:KotORII Map Trayus Core.png
Map of the Trayus core

Beyond the north door from the academy is a rock passage leading to a ledge on the south wall of the Trayus core. You cannot return to the academy, so your only option is to travel north across a narrow bridge connecting the southern ledge to the center of the core.

Trayus Core[edit]

At the center of the core is a circular platform ringed by eight claw-like pillars with archways through them. At the center of this platform is a raised area accessed by ramps to the south, northwest and northeast: this too is ringed by five smaller claw-like pillars, one on the north side and two each to either side of the southern ramp.

Darth Traya[edit]

Darth Traya stands in the center of this raised platform. She won't engage in dialog then combat until you approach her on the outer ring of the platform, so now is a good time to prepare for the upcoming battle by healing and using and shields, stimulants and Force power buffs of longer duration that aren't already active.

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: At last you have arrived. Is Malachor as you remember?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. It's not too late, Kreia. I can save you, if you'll let me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I have come to kill you, Kreia.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: I have thought of this moment, more than you know. And I wondered, if here, at this ending between us, if you would care enough to try to save me - if a Jedi could find it within themselves to spare one who has fallen so far. I wanted you to say those words - for that I am grateful. But I do not want your mercy. I want you to break. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: I know. But there is more than death in this galaxy, and you shall not find it easy. It was difficult to draw you here, but it had to be done. This place is your last test. It is the graveyard of the past, where you lost everything. It is the dark place in your mind that still echoes of failure. Now we shall see if you can overcome the weight of Malachor... and silence the echoes that beat from its heart.

The following responses will end this opening dialog at any time:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. You will answer for every betrayal, every deception. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Then let us end this. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Malachor will survive - but you will not.

Otherwise, there is much you can ask her:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. There is much I must ask you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Malachor has not changed... only you have.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: You no doubt have many questions. I would be a poor teacher if I did not give you the answers you seek here, now. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: Indeed. Perhaps it is merely your perception of me that have changed. It is strange that you believe Malachor has not. But it has always been timeless to you, this place. And words have always been inadequate for the horrors that took place here.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Why did you destroy Atris?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Why have you done this?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Why me?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. What happens now?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. This Academy here won't last, Kreia. I can activate the mass shadow generator again.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You were manipulating me all along.

Once this dialog ends, you engage in combat:

If you disengage, there are bridges leading to ledges to the northwest and northeast: there are two corpses on the former, and one on the latter.

Lightsabers[edit]

Once Darth Traya has been reduced to less than 10 Vitality:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Yield, Kreia. You need not die. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I don't need your teaching anymore. I have defeated you, both in mind and body. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. And so the "master" falls. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Are you ready to die, old woman?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: If you do not kill me, I shall end you. Strike me down, end this. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: Then finish this - kill me. Strike me down, and at last, end this. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: I died long ago - and now the circle is complete. Strike me down, and at last, end this.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I am Jedi, and I will not strike a defenseless opponent. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. No, this is already over. Your life is yours, Kreia... and you cannot teach me anymore. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Then prepare yourself. I will make this quick. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. It shall be my pleasure.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: You will not show me mercy. I will see you break before you do. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: Good... you have strength. But you have yet to learn the full extent of power.

Three floating lightsabers appear around her:

Darth Traya no longer attacks you, but once she's been reduced to less than 10 Vitality again or all three lightsabers have been killed:

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 375 Killed Lightsaber Floating (0-3) (level 30)
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: It is done. At last, it is done. You are greater than any I have ever trained. By killing me here - you have rewarded me more than you can possibly know.

If you ask about the future, or your friends:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. The future? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. What of my friends? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. You spoke of the future.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: Many things do I see as I gaze here from the heart of Malachor. This place... channels such energies. If it matters to you, at this last moment, I shall look into the future, and tell you of what I see. It is my last gift to you, from one exile... to another.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Let the future rest - it will come in time. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. I do not need such gifts. Rest now, Kreia. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. My only future is to stand here and watch you die.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Darth Traya: Ah... yes. There is... truth in what you say.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What will happen to my friends? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. And of my allies? What of them?

Responses depend on their alignment, not yours. If you ask about the future of the galaxy, or the Republic:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I would see this future... the future of the galaxy. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. What of the Republic?

She collapses and dies at the end of the dialog. With Alignment 40 or more, the platform and the planet itself collapse around you as the Ebon Hawk arrives, allowing you to escape Malachor V in the nick of time. Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. The core of this planet shall be your grave. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Now let us see if Malachor will accept your body, old woman.

Darth Traya drops from the platform into Malachor's... core.
