As the New Jedi Order was mobilizing to intercept the Disciples of Ragnos on Korriban, Kyle Katarn informed his student Jaden Korr that he had received a distress call from Rosh Penin, who said he was being held captive on Taspir III. Korr was dubious because Penin had previously turned to the dark side, and feared a trap, but he agreed to help Kyle nonetheless.
The two Jedi arrived at an Imperial led smelting facility on the barren, lava-ridden surface of Taspir III. Kyle dropped Jaden off at the back entrance of the plant and flew the Raven's Claw around to enter from another entrance. Korr proceeded through the complex, climbing the levels of the tall towers and crossing perilous bridges, avoiding deadly lava flows, dispatching scores of Imperial troops and New Reborn along the way. Eventually, he encountered the Dark Jedi Alora, who taunted him and fled. Korr pursued her through the facility, navigating dangerous assembly lines and machining equipment. During the chase, Korr became increasingly frustrated and angry, treading perilously close to the dark side.
Alora eventually led him to Rosh, whom Jaden confronted in his rage. Alora encouraged him to kill Rosh, believing that if he could be turned he would be a powerful ally. Kyle, in another part of the plant, telepathically urged Jaden to resist temptation. He let go of his anger, deactivated his lightsaber, and asked Rosh for forgiveness. Alora was angered, and engaged Korr in a duel, severing Rosh's arm in the process. After minutes of intense fighting, Jaden managed to defeat and kill Alora. Kyle arrived, and knew that Rosh had to receive medical attention. He carried Penin away, unconscious, and praised Jaden for making the right choice. The two Jedi parted there, and Jaden went on to Korriban to assist the Jedi strike force in battling the Disciples of Ragnos and the Imperial Remnant.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy game, the player has a choice between the light and dark sides of the Force. If the player chooses the non-canonical, dark side ending, Jaden mortally wounds Rosh, and then refuses to join the Disciples of Ragnos, slaying Alora as well. After Jaden leaves, Kyle enters and finds Rosh, who says he was sorry that both of Kyle's students had failed him. Before Rosh dies, Kyle assures him that he had become a Jedi. He then leaves to pursue Jaden.
