I still do not know where this belongs so here it is. I hope it can help. Karohalva 21:36, 20 February 2007 (UTC)


CARTH Sorry. I can't be of much help with that.

I'm not really sure. You can figure it out on your own, can't you?

Yes? What's on your mind?

You got it.

If you're ready to talk, then yes... so am I.

I can't hate you. I tried... I wanted to hold you responsible for all the things you've done. For my... for my wife, for Telos... for Dustil. But I can't.

Maybe you shouldn't. I would hope that my standing by you would mean something to you, but maybe it doesn't. Maybe it just can't.

I got the revenge I always wanted when Saul died, but it hasn't brought me the peace that I thought it would.

All I can think of now is the promise I made to protect you from what's going to come. It's given me a reason to look past simple revenge.

Despite whatever part of Revan is inside you, the... the darkness that must surely be there, it isn't who you are.

That's why I can't hate you, why I don't want any more revenge. You don't have to be Revan, you can be so much more. Whatever the Jedi did to you, they gave you that chance.

You have this huge destiny waiting for you, and I just fear that if you're alone it could swallow you whole. I mean, is there room in there for me? Will you let me help you?

Oh. I had... hoped that there might be. I don't blame you. Uh. You're not the same woman I met on Taris anymore, are you?

Well, thank you for your honesty. I still intend to see this through to the end, whatever happens. Malak needs to be stopped.

And uh, you... you'll make the decision you have to. And we'll have to deal with that day when it comes.

I think I would be hurt worse if I didn't try.

Whatever's happened up until this point, there's going to come a time very soon where you're going to have to make a choice. And there won't be any turning back.

I want you to make the right choice. I want to give you a reason to.

You gave me a future. I want to give you a future, too... with me. I think I could love you, if you give me the chance.

Neither do I. But does that really matter if we love each other?

Well then I'm... I'm glad. Let's... let's face the future together, then... there's still a lot to do.

Well then I hope I can save you. From yourself.

You have a darkness inside you that must be Revan. But there's more to you, as well. I see it, I know it's there.

I do. It's serious, though... I need your attention. Is this a good time?

Alright. We'll talk later, then.

Alright. I'm, uh... I'm concerned about you. I've been keeping these thoughts to myself, mostly, but I think it's time I say something.

It's about you. I'm worried about what might happen to you. You have a lot of courage, and the fact you've remained strong is amazing, but there is even greater danger ahead.I think you might be setting yourself up for a fall. Maybe at the urging of the Jedi, I don't know... but you're definitely going to become a target.

If, uh... if I'm going to find some purpose beyond taking revenge on Saul, then it's going to have to be in protecting you.

I don't know why, but I think some terrible fate is waiting for you. I think the Jedi Council knows it, too. And I don't want that to come to pass.

Don't chalk it up to my paranoia just yet. Something isn't right. I blamed it on you, before, but I... I think the Jedi didn't tell us everything.

If I'm going to live past Saul, I need you to, as well. Let me protect you... from yourself, from the Sith... you have to let me try.

I, uh... I guess I have no other choice. I will still help you, if I can... but I guess you're on your own.

If that's the way you want it, I hope things go well. Let's, uh... let's get back to what we were doing.

I'm glad to hear that. I'll do my best.

Because... because I never got the chance to save my wife and son. Because I didn't stop Saul when I had the chance.

Because I finally have the chance to do it right. You are an extraordinary woman... you make me think that maybe I might have some purpose beyond revenge.

I don't know whether it means anything to you... but it does to me.

I know that there's going to come a day when you'll look in the mirror and wonder how you ever got to become what you are... and by then it will be too late.

I *sigh* I... don't know. I'm not the best of men, and I'm not the strongest fighter there is... but I'll find a way.

That's where I think you're wrong. You can't do this on your own. Nobody could.

It's about you. I'm worried about what you're doing to yourself... how much you've succumbed to violence and anger.

I knew it was possible for this to happen to you... and it just pains me to see it. I've been down this path. And I don't recommend it.

Oh. I hadn't thought you'd noticed...

Well, I ah... I've just been admiring you. Not, uhh, not anything like that, though...

I've been watching you in action. Your, your skills... you have a natural talent that is incredible.

Not that, ah, all I do is watch you or anything. I don't mean anything by it.

Oh. Right. I'll, ah, I'll just pay attention to what I'm doing...

Well... maybe a few. I hope you won't mind if I keep those to myself.

Ha! Why didn't you tell me that sooner? You would have saved me a lot of trouble.

I will say one thing, however. We've come a long way with your help. Whether it's the Force or fate or just dumb luck... I'm glad you're here.

We probably would have never made it this far without you. I... should have said this long before, instead of doubting you. I, ah, hope you can forgive me.

Err... what do you mean?

What am I supposed to say? I was wrong. I was a stubborn fool. I... Look, I have trouble admitting it when a beautiful woman has my number...ok?

Sorry. Didn't mean to... embarass you. I'll stop.

I'll, ah, take that as a yes. I'm glad that's settled. Shall we... shall we get back to what we were doing?

And you accepted it... but that doesn't mean I'm forgiven. I'd like to be.

I guess I'm a proud man. I... don't admit things like this easily.

Thank you. Let's, ah... let's get back to what we were doing.

Because you're an impressive and beautiful woman. In some ways... good ways... you remind me of my wife and I'd like to make things right between us.

I've been watching how you deal with people. You have a real finesse that is incredible to watch in action.

I've been watching you work on the com. Your skill with computers is incredible.

I've been watching you wield that lightsaber, actually. Your finesse with it is incredible.

You mean if I kill him?

I... never thought about it. I suppose I always assumed that I would be dead once Saul was.

That's never occurred to me. I've always been the captain of my own ship, after all... or thought about going after Saul on my own.

Understand that whenever I envisioned taking on Saul in the past, it was always as the captain of my own ship... or alone. In those cases I would risk everything.

I'm not in the same situation, now. I wouldn't risk hurting you... or the others.

You don't think I would throw away everything we're doing here, do you?

Of course it means something to me! The Sith have to be stopped! You think it doesn't matter to me that everyone on Taris is dead? That the Republic is in danger?

I would like to think that I wouldn't put you in danger. That I wouldn't forget that there's more behind Saul that needs to be stopped.

If I saw Saul, however... if I had the chance... I don't know what I would do. I really don't. I mean his death has been my entire focus for so long.

But, uh... maybe it's best I did. I have to see this through... and I will, to the end. I promise you that. No matter what.

I know. I'll... see this through. I promise you that. No matter what.

Well, that's easier said than done, but I know you mean well. I promise you I'll see this through. No matter what.

As for what comes afterward... well, let's wait until I know that I'm around to see it.

Oh... it's nothing. Sorry.

Moping? I'm not moping! I... okay, fine, maybe I'm moping a little, but you're very pushy, you know that?

I told you my wife died four years ago. I... I've just been trying to remember what she looked like.

It shouldn't be so difficult. I can remember things about her... things she did. The way she smiled, what her hair smelled like, our last fight... just not her face.

I try to hold it in my head but it's gone. Is... that strange? Maybe I shouldn't be talking to you about this.

That's a damned mean thing to say. I wasn't ready for her to go, I can't accept it. Alright?

But I *should* be able to remember her face. It's frustrating! I... feel like I'm losing her.

I, uh... it must look really strange for me to be obsessing like this, still. You must think I'm incredibly stupid.

She isn't a ghost to me. I still remember holding her as she died... and I doubt I'll forget until I've paid Saul back in kind.

That's all I have left: finding Saul and killing the scum. Don't worry... I won't waste any more time until then.

Maybe. It can't be worse than what I tell myself, sometimes.

I... suppose you're probably right. But I have to do it, anyway.

The only thing that's kept me going since she died has been the need to find Saul and kill him. It's better to think about that than... anything else.

If I can do that, then maybe I can let her go. Let it all go.

If we encounter Saul... if we ever have the chance, promise me that I will be the one to kill him. I have to settle this... I need to.

Whether it does or not, that's the way it has to be. I... guess there's no need to discuss it until then.

Thank you. I... guess there's really nothing else to say.

Ahhh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have mentioned it, even if you asked. I just find you, I don't know... easy to talk to.

To think that I once looked up to those two as the best that humanity had to offer. Now I'd like nothing more than to put a blaster to both their heads.

Although I suppose only Malak is left, isn't he? Turned on his own master, not that Revan didn't have it coming. Heh. Typical for their kind, I guess.

Well... when they returned from wherever they went, they had an entire fleet with them. Nobody knows where they got the ships.

They had a lot of them and as the years have passed there always seems to be more and more... while our forces dwindle.

Did they really get away with it, though? Revan was betrayed by Malak... and Malak hasn't won. In the end, the dark side won't help him.

Nobody does. When they left after the Mandalorian wars ended, they were Jedi. When they returned... they were something else.

No, not personally. They aided the Republic during the Mandalorian wars. They were heroes. Without them the Mandaloreans would have finished us for certain.

In the fleet, we didn't see much of the Jedi. I only met Malak once, but I was impressed by him. I guess that just shows how much the dark side can change someone.

I, uh... used to think that it was a fancy name for something that I see every day. Corruption is everywhere. People are greedy and stupid and do horrible things.

I'm starting to think it's different for the Jedi, however. That there's this evil watching them, waiting for its chance.

You have so much courage and strength in you... yet, somehow, I have no trouble imagining it differently. Like the flip side of a coin.

I've been watching you. You have this, uh... incredible darkness inside you. Some of the things you do disturb me.

It's not just you. It's Bastila, as well. She's so... intense. I don't pretend to know much about the Force... but I know evil.

That's a frightening thought. I hope you're right.

No? I know how people change. I remember how Malak looked and acted before his return... I bet the old Malak discounted the possibility that he would ever fall, as well.

No, of course not. All I'm saying is that when you have so much power, the stakes are higher. I can only imagine the kind of conflict that goes on inside you.

Neither you nor Bastila are fully trained on how to handle your power. I'm just concerned at what might come.

I didn't mean to... <Sigh> Fine, fine. I suppose I shouldn't stick my nose where it doesn't belong. I'll leave you be.

I know that, and Bastila says the same thing. You're both incredible women. I'm just... I'm just not sure this is the kind of thing you can defeat.

Well, that's not what I... I mean... I wouldn't want to see you hurt. Either of you.

I suppose finding the Star Maps is more important than your training... and your safety. I just hope there isn't a price for you to pay.

I already told you. He betrayed us all.

Well, There... there is more to it. I'm... I'm sure you don't want to hear about it.

It's just that I... don't talk about it very much. Ok?

I told you about my homeworld. Telos. Four years ago, Saul led the Sith fleet there and demanded its surrender. The planet refused and Saul proceeded to devastate its entire surface. Millions died.

I had... a wife and son on Telos. I thought they would be safe there. But my task force arrived too late to be of much help.

We didn't have enough medical supplies. The colony was burning and the dying were everywhere. I remember holding my wife and screaming for the medics. They... didn't come in time.

Gotten over it? Look - my family was everything to me. Once they were gone... I had nothing. Hunting Saul became my only purpose.

Of course not. How could you? I... had nothing left after that, really. I devoted myself to the fleet. Hunting Saul was my only purpose.

I... miss them. I know killing Saul won't bring them back, and it won't make me happy again... but I have to do it.

I don't expect you to understand. I have to pay him back for what he's done... I have to. It's all I have left.

Yes. I can't forgive Saul for this. He took everything from me, even... even my trust. I hope you can understand that.

She had courage and ... and she was stubborn. I could never talk her out of anything once she put her mind to it.

And she hated it when I signed back onto the fleet at the start of the war. I had planned on... on leaving soon, to join her...

No, it's alright, I don't mind. You deserved some kind of... explanation.

I've... never talked about it before. To anyone. I suppose it's time I finally did.

His name was Dustil and I don't know what happened to him. The colony was a complete ruin, and we never found any trace of him.

I made inquiries and followed the reports from Telos for years, but... I stopped.

Anyway... that's the story. For what it's worth.

Anyway... I hope that answers your questions. Let's, uh... let's continue with what we were doing.

I, ahhh... I'm not very good at this. I... I know I owe you an apology. Uh, more than one, probably.

I was just so desperate to finally face Saul directly in the battle over Taris, and now the Jedi have us looking for these... these Star Maps.

I know this mission is important, it's just... I feel a bit useless. I can fight, sure, but I'm no Jedi... all this feels completely out of my league.

You don't exactly pull any punches, do you? Not that I don't deserve it, I suppose.

Because this is more important. This may really, finally, make a difference... I suppose even if I can't figure out everything that's going on, I still want to help if I can.

It doesn't, I know. It's... been a while since I even had to think about that sort of thing.

I just hate not knowing what's going on and feeling this... helpless. But I shouldn't have taken that out on you. I've been a royal pain in the backside, haven't I?

No, I do worry about it. I've traveled the lanes more than once, I should know better than this.

Ha! Well... I guess I should be at least a little pleased that I haven't lost my touch.

I guess there's no harm done then. Still I, uh... I should know better by now.

So... I'm sorry. Will you accept my apology?

Don't drown me in sentiment, already. *Sigh* Fair enough, let's move on.

Done! Let's get underway, then, shall we... partner?

Have I been quiet? I suppose I have. I guess I just don't like being left out of the loop.

You want to be smart, do you? Fine. So long as I get some questions answered.

Listen, sister, I don't remember reading anywhere that it's a requirement that you remain with us after we left Taris, yet here you are.

No? Well, you certainly aren't helping matters any, either, and it's really starting to irritate me.

Left out of the loop. You know. Not being told anything... strung along. It's really starting to irritate me.

For one thing, I want to know what the Jedi Council said to you. They pulled you in there and refused to tell me a thing about it.

I'm rather curious to know what went on... and why they didn't keep you on Dantooine for training. Isn't that strange?

And why is that? You were a great help on Taris, but why would they keep you with us? Don't they... don't they have to train you?

None of my business? Uh, I'm sorry... aren't I a part of this mission? The Jedi may be in charge, but I'm risking all the same things you are!

You can be sick of whatever you like. What I'm sick of is being kept in the dark!

Are we? Why, then, does it seem like the Jedi know everything and leave the rest of us out in the cold?

I may not know much about the Jedi, but I do know they aren't famous for taking on old Padawans and sending them on dangerous assignments.

That's completely beside the point. The Jedi encouraged you to stay with us, and I don't believe the reasons they gave.

A bond? What kind of bond? You mean to say that they told you you were "tied" to Bastila in some way? Heh. I have trouble believing that.

I've been watching you... you can be cruel and impulsive. A Jedi without self-control or training, and yet the Council sends you on your way? Why?

You're a neophyte Padawan who's been saddled with the responsibility of tracking down these Star Maps. Why? That's not normal!

And what does that mean? Is this more of that destiny garbage that the Jedi keep talking about? Well, that can't be it!

I'm not going anywhere until I've paid Saul back, damn it!

I'll tell you this much... I am *not* going to wait around until I'm betrayed again!

Fine. You got it. Conversation over.

Nothing. Not yet. You just better hope I don't get a reason to.

Well, we'll just see about that, won't we?

BASTILA

  • That* is none of your concern, Carth, and you would do well to leave the matter be.

CARTH I respect you, Bastila, but you've been as close-mouthed as the rest of the Council. If you won't talk to me, then maybe somebody else will.

I thought I said I didn't want to talk about it anymore.

I... suppose you're right. Fine, then. But I don't know why you're so interested, but here it goes.

When I think of all the men who have betrayed us, the one that stands out above them all is the one I respected the most. Saul.

You don't? I thought everyone did. Admiral Saul Karath is the commander of the entire Sith fleet. He's half the reason Malak has done so well in the war.

Saul was my commanding officer back when the Mandalorian Wars first began. He taught me everything about being a soldier... and I looked up to him.

Saul approached me before he left. He talked to me about how the Republic was on the losing side... and about how I should start thinking of my survival.

I know now that he was trying to recruit me into the Sith, but I couldn't have conceived of it back then. I argued with him and he got angry and he left. I never saw him again.

Saul was my mentor... he led us to so many victories against the Mandalorians, even when things looked to be at their worst.

I just... I couldn't conceive of it. He... he couldn't be serious. I was wrong, of course... he not only left us for the Sith, he... he gave them the codes to bypass our scanners.

I remember waking up as the first of the Sith bombers snuck past our defenses and began destroying half of our docked ships. I knew right away what had happened.

I... could have stopped him. I could have stopped it all.

Don't even start with that! I don't feel sorry for myself. I feel angry... at Saul and all those others. It's all I can think about sometimes!

I've fought Saul for years, now, and if I ever catch up to him... he will regret what he's done. He will regret it.

No. No, it's not.

But I don't want to talk about it right now. Let's go.

I don't know. Maybe. He might have killed me if I'd tried, or I might have killed him. I was stupid, however, and I let him go.

I blame Saul, not myself. I was... I was stupid and I ignored the danger. He nearly destroyed us all.

Cute. Nice to know that you're so full of concern. *Sigh* Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt, though I don't know why you're so interested.

Not particularly. I... guess it wouldn't hurt, exactly, either, though I don't know why you're so interested.

Oh? You want to argue some more, is that it?

And I don't really want to argue with you, either. You seem... sincere enough, I guess.

I just don't trust easily, and for good reasons... which are my own.

Ahhh, damn it. I suppose I won't get any rest until I talk, will I? You want to know why I don't trust anyone? Fine, here goes.

Five years ago the Jedi had just finished the war with the Mandalorians. Revan and Malak were heroes. I was damn proud to have served in their fleet.

It was completely unexpected when they turned on us, invading the Republic while we were still weak. Nobody knew what to think, least of all me.

Our heroes had become brutal, conquering Sith... and we were all but helpless before them. Think about it... if you can't even trust the best of the Jedi, who can you trust?

I... it wasn't even that. There were others: good, solid men. Trusted men who turned on us, as well, and joined their cause.

Malak and Revan and the Sith deserve to die for what they've done... but the ones who fled the Republic and joined them are even worse.

The dark side has nothing to do with why they joined with the Sith. They deserve no mercy!

I know. I... should apologize to you. I've become so accustomed to expecting the worst in others, and you've done nothing to deserve that.

It's just... never mind. Let's just continue with what we were doing. I'd rather not talk about it.

I... of course the Jedi turned to the dark side. There were others, however, who weren't Jedi. Good men... trusted men who joined them.

It... it's not that. It's... That's not what I mean. There were... there were others. Good, solid, trusted men who joined them.

What does it matter that much? Why can't you just leave it be?

So I've seen. If I were Malak I'd be a bit nervous to have you on my tail.

Ha! Can't say I've met a woman quite like you before. You're really something.

  • Sigh* I knew you wouldn't understand where I was coming from. Let me try to explain.

You've got the skills of an elite commando, and you've saved my butt more than once. Between that and your facility with languages, I'm lucky you're here.

But that doesn't mean I'm going to stop watching you or being wary. I'm just not built that way. Period.

I don't know that, yet. Like I said before, it's probably nothing. But I've been betrayed before by people and I... well, it won't happen again, that's all.

You, uh... haven't done anything *yet*. But there's no guarantee that you won't do anything in the future. I've been betrayed before by people and I... well, it won't happen again.

Maybe so. But I've been betrayed before by people I... well, it won't happen again, that's all.

Look... I'm not trying to insult you. This is just the way I am, no need to take it personally.

Yeah, well, you wouldn't be the first. Look... I don't expect you to be my friend. This is just the way I am, no need to take it personally.

I don't know that you'll betray me. But there are no guarantees... not for you, not for me. You don't have to take it personally.

Me?

I don't remember ever saying anything about "traitor". All I mean is that if you're smart, you won't trust anyone... not me, not Bastila and especially not yourself.

You shouldn't. If you're smart, you won't trust anyone... not me, not Bastila, and especially not yourself.

I... but I... it's just like a woman to try and turn things around.

Watch how relieved I am. We've more important things to do, anyway. Let's get them over with.

Don't get all proud of yourself. Let's just keep moving.

Well, you can stop wondering. I'm not.

Well stop wondering, sister. I'm not and I won't.

One you're not going to hear anytime soon. Let's just keep moving, shall we?

Hairless Wookiee? Alright, sister, just... just... just calm down before your head explodes.

Calm down there, princess. Your face is starting to turn purple.

I don't see what you're getting so excited over. We've got more important things to do than argue, anyway, so let's get it over with.

Cute. Let's just move on... we have more important things to do than argue.

Didn't we discuss this already? We were ambushed and outnumbered. Why do you think it crashed?

Neither was I, to tell the truth. I was onboard as an advisor for the most part. The battle began so fast, it's anyone's guess as to what actually happened.

I'm just trying to figure it out. I saw enough men lose their lives needlessly during the Mandalorian Wars. It's... difficult to see that happening all over again.

We lost the ship and a lot of good people... and for what? On the hope that Jedi powers would save us, somehow. Not that Bastila had much of an opportunity to act.

True. Bastila is as powerful as they say... she's the one who defeated Darth Revan, after all.

Hmm. I guess that no Jedi ability, no matter how powerful, makes up for being completely surprised and outmatched.

We didn't choose that battle, anyway. It got forced on us. Hell, I'm just surprised that any of us are alive to talk about it.

Come to think of it, it's more than a little surprising that you happen to be here, isn't it? Just what is your position with the Republic fleet, anyway?

Hell no... unless you consider that you were a last-minute addition to the crew roster and you just happen to be one of the survivors.

Well, that makes sense. Still... it seems a bit strange that someone who was a last-minute addition to the crew roster is one of the survivors.

A smuggler? I should have guessed. Isn't it odd, however, that a smuggler who was added to the crew at the last minute just happens to be alive?

Not at all. I just think it's a bit odd that someone who got added to the crew roster at the last minute just happens to be one of the survivors.

No. Well... maybe. Don't get me wrong, it just seems odd that someone Bastila's party specifically requested to transfer aboard happened to survive.

I'm not trying to be paranoid. It's just that I learned a long time ago that something which looks like a coincidence probably isn't. Especially when the Jedi are involved.

The Jedi requested numerous things when they came on board... hell, they practically took over the ship, as far as I could tell. Considering your connection to Bastila and the Jedi... whether you know it or not... your presence here seems a little convenient.

I'm probably wrong and this is probably nothing, I know. I learned a long time ago not to take things at face value, however. And I *hate* surprises.

You don't know the first thing about me and I don't know the first thing about you, and let's keep it that way for now, shall we?

If you say so. Let's just get back to it, then, shall we?

Fine. Let's do that.

I am working with you. I'd be a fool not to. I'd also be a fool not to expect the unexpected.

I expect you're right. I've got no real reason to suspect you of anything. Still... it's better to be safe than sorry, right?

I mean I have to expect the unexpected. Just to be safe.

You were the only one. Not to mention that Bastila's party was the one who requested your transfer.

Don't be ridiculous. You've more than proved yourself since the crash... we wouldn't have made it this far without you. But still...

Me? Well, I've been a star-pilot for the Republic for years. I've seen more than my share of wars... I fought in the Mandalorian Wars before all this started.

But with all that, I've never experienced anything like the slaughter these Sith animals can unleash. Not even the Mandalorians were that senseless.

My home world was one of the first planets to fall to Malak's fleet. The Sith bombed it into submission, and there wasn't a damn thing our Republic forces could do to stop them!

I'm just a soldier; I go where the fleet Admirals tell me to. I follow my orders and I do my duty. It just... *sigh* doesn't seem right that doing that means I failed them! I didn't!

It shouldn't be my fault. I did everything I could... I followed my orders and did my duty. That shouldn't mean I failed them! I didn't!

Yes. No... no, that's not what I mean. I mean... I'm sorry. I'm not making much sense, am I?

I'm more used to taking action... keeping my mind focused on the business at hand. So let's just do that. If you have more questions, ask them later.

There's nothing to talk about. I failed my son... just as I failed my wife. I thought that if I ever found him...

Well never mind what I thought. It's not important any more. Let's just... continue the mission. I want to pay these rail-rats back for what they did to him.

I think so. If he's anything like he used to be, Dustil hates to be tricked. There's no way he'll let the Sith trick him again.

As for whether or not he'll be my son again... I don't know. He's so full of anger and hate... I wasn't expecting him to be like this.

Maybe we can work it out. I hope so. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Thanks, by the way... for all your help.

I don't really know much about this place, sorry.

Korriban's a desolate world, and a Sith planet. There's only one small colony here, I'm pretty sure.

Kashyyyk is covered by a giant forest, I hear. Trees kilometers high. The Wookiees live on the higher branches, I think.

Tatooine's just a desert planet. I hear the mining isn't going so well... I'd bet the colony gets abandoned before long.

Manaan's a neutral world. They're the only source of kolto... the healing fluid... and they use that to remain free from both the Republic and the Sith.

Dantooine's a boring place. It's all plains and herders and small settlements. Perfect for the Jedi to lose themselves in, I guess.

Taris? The planet's all one big city... but it's golden years are long past, and things have gotten worse since the Sith occupied it.

From what I hear, the wealthy live on the tops of all the tall towers. And if you're poor, you live down in the shadows... and it gets worse the lower you go.

That's all I can think of, at any rate.

Sounds good to me.

Whatever you want.

What do you need?

Talk about what? The only thing I want to do right now is find Dustil. If he's alive... well, there's just nothing else I want to think about.

I'll understand if we can't look for him right now, but if we could it would be a huge load off my mind.

What do you need?

No. What I want is to find something... anything... that will convince Dustil that we're telling the truth.

There must be *something* here in the academy we can bring to him, something that would show him what the Sith really are!

Not right now. I think this datapad we found is the evidence we need. We have to bring it to Dustil right away.

REVAN Never mind.

I think it's time we talked about me being Revan, don't you?

And?

Why should I care if you hate me?

I'm glad to hear that.

Why can't you?

No, Carth. There's no room in my destiny for you.

I don't want you hurt protecting me, Carth.

What do you mean?

You think I could fall to the dark side, do you?

How could you possibly help me?

I'm sorry Carth. There's no room in my destiny for you.

What sort of reason?

I can't give you that chance. There can be no future between us.

I can't see into the future. I don't know what's going to happen.

I guess not. I think I could love you, too.

I think I could love you, too.

And if I make the wrong choice?

You look like you want to say something.

No, maybe later.

This is fine.

What's this about?

You think the Jedi have thrown me to the wolves?

Forget it, I said. I don't need you crowding me. Period.

Fine, Carth. Do what you have to.

Why are you doing this?

Fine. But this isn't personal.

Alright, Carth. I'd be glad for the help.

I haven't 'succumbed' to anything. What do you know?!

And just how are you supposed to protect me?

I can take care of myself. I don't need you.

You've been watching me very closely as of late. Why is that?

Well, I did.

Just keep your eyes to yourself from now on and leave me be, got that?

Oh? Any other observations?

It's alright. I don't mind if you watch me.

Is that it?

I mean is that how you ask for forgiveness?

Oh, this is too corny. Take a hike and leave me alone, will you?

You think I'm beautiful?

Well... that's certainly better...

You already apologized once, Carth.

That was rather like pulling teeth.

Forget it. You don't get off so easy.

Alright, you're off the hook. You're forgiven.

Why do you need my forgiveness, anyway?

So tell me... what happens if you ever get your revenge on Saul?

Yes. What happens afterwards?

But what if you don't die? What then?

Why? What kind of risks do you plan on taking?

I would certainly hope not.

How do I know that's the truth?

What are we doing here? Does it mean anything to you?

I don't know. What wouldn't you stop at to kill Saul?

Then I can't rely on you. You shouldn't have come.

I need your help, Carth. There's more than Saul to fight.

Well, you'll have to find something else to focus on.

You seem like you're far away. Is something wrong?

Out with it, Carth. I won't have you moping.

It doesn't seem like nothing.

Will you get over her, already? It's been four years!

No, it's not strange, Carth. You remember the important things.

Not only that, you're a fool. You're wasting your time on useless ghosts.

What I think shouldn't matter, Carth.

No, but I doubt your wife would want you to do this to yourself.

That's not going to help anything, Carth.

If we get the opportunity... then I promise.

Things may not work out that way. I can't promise that.

It does feel a little odd to discuss her, I admit.

What do you know about Revan and Malak?

How did they get away with all this?

Do you know why they turned to the dark side?

You knew them personally?

What do you know about the dark side?

I do what I want, and enjoy my power. Evil has nothing to do with it.

I'm not falling to the dark side, Carth, and I won't.

You don't know what you're talking about, Carth.

You think Bastila and I are evil?

I don't need you mothering me. Leave me alone from now on.

I can handle myself, Carth.

That's sweet. I didn't know you cared.

Tell me why you want revenge on Saul so badly.

Come on, Carth, you aren't fooling me.

It just seems to be more... personal than that, is all.

I asked, didn't I?

So what? Tough break. You haven't gotten over it yet?

That's terrible, I'm sorry. I didn't know.

So this is where all that anger comes from.

What was she like, your wife?

I didn't mean to pry.

Fair enough.

Thank you for telling me.

So what happened to your son? You didn't say.

Do you want to talk? You got pretty upset the last time we spoke.

We didn't end our last discussion very well...

Maybe if you pull yourself together you won't be so useless.

Why don't you return to the front lines, then?

And how does that excuse your actions?

Don't worry about it, Carth.

You sure have.

Not really. I couldn't care less what you think.

No, I won't. Just keep quiet and do what you're told from now on.

Only if you agree to work with me, for once.

You've been very quiet, lately, you know that?

Oh, poor baby. You need filling in on some detail?

I'm not the one leaving you out of the loop, Carth.

Left out of the loop? I don't understand.

They thought it was more important that I help find the Star Maps than stay.

It's none of your business, frankly.

Get ahold of yourself. I'm sick of your paranoia.

Isn't that the point? Aren't we all in this together?

Why should anything the Jedi do seem strange to you?

I've done pretty well so far.

They said there's a bond between Bastila and myself.

Bastila and I have a bond. We have to do this together. That's all I'm going to say.

I'm sick of listening to you rant! Why don't *you* leave?!

I'm here and that's not going to change. Get over it.

Are you saying I'm not needed?

I am *sick* of listening to this. Just shut up or leave!

And just what are you going to do about it?

I am *not* going to betray you! I am *not* Saul!

I want to continue our discussion from before.

I think you owe me an explanation, Carth.

You say that name like I should know it.

You didn't think he would betray the Republic?

And that's why you feel so sorry for yourself?

So that's all of it, then?

Do you really believe that?

So you blame yourself for trusting your friend?

Yes, but I'm bored, so spit it out.

Don't you think you'd feel better if you discussed it?

I just want to talk with you.

No, I don't want to argue with you.

Fine. You can stuff your reasons, then.

I suppose you can't. That must have been hard to take.

I haven't joined the Sith, Carth.

You say that with such... hatred.

They turned to the dark side, obviously. Why is it so personal?

What do I have to do with Malak and Revan?

What reasons? I want to know.

But we have to work together, Carth, so it has plenty to do with me.

I just want to know why you distrust me so much.

I'm always up for a good fight.

I want to discuss something with you.

And what, exactly, are you watching me for?

Why are you so hostile? What did I do to deserve this?

Not built that way? That sounds like an excuse.

Of course it won't happen again if you never trust anyone!

I'm starting to get pretty tired of this attitude of yours.

So you want some guarantee that I won't betray you?!

Right. And how am I supposed to know that *you* won't betray us?

Why not you? Accusing other people is a good cover for a traitor.

Yes, you! Why should I trust you, after all?

Great. Let's keep moving, then.

You sound less convinced.

I'll pretend I didn't hear that.

What's the matter, Carth? Lose your chain of thought?

I'm beginning to wonder if you're even capable of trusting anyone.

I'm willing to bet there's a story behind this.

You're a sad case, Carth.

Don't tell me not to take it personally, you hairless Wookiee!

Just keep your distance, Carth.

I'm not going to stand here and be insulted!

Keep it up, and you'll be turning black and blue.

Is this a good time to ask you some more questions?

I wasn't in a position to know what was going on, really.

Why ask me? I don't see the point.

Like you said when we first met: Bastila didn't have time to use her powers.

I'm just a soldier. I'm sure there isn't anything unusual about that, is there?

I'm a scout. I was recruited into the fleet for my skills, if you must know.

I used to be a smuggler, if you must know. I was recruited into the fleet for my knowledge.

Why? Are you accusing me of something?

Are you implying *I* had something to do with the crash?

It doesn't make any difference. Go ahead and be paranoid.

Why would Bastila request my transfer?

Are you sure it's me you're angry at?

Try something and it'll be the last mistake you make.

Don't be such a fool! We're on the same side!

Fine. Let's just get back to something important, then.

Shouldn't we be trying to work together?

I'm telling you, Carth, I had nothing to do with the crash.

What do you mean by surprises?

I have no idea what you're talking about!

What's so odd about me being added to the crew at the last minute?

You'd rather I wasn't?

I'd like to know some more about you, Carth.

Calm down. I was just asking.

I'm sorry, Carth. This must be very painful for you.

You're talking like it's your fault. Like you failed somehow.

Hey, why are you getting so mad at me? It's not like this was my fault!

I'm sorry, Carth. I didn't mean to upset you.

Them? Do you mean the people of your home world?

Do you want to talk about it?

Do you think you'll see Dustil again?

Do you know anything about this place?

I want you to rejoin the party.

I want to switch you with another party member.

Do you want to talk?

Do you want to talk?
