"Find what you were looking for amongst the dead?

"
"What do you wish to hear? That I once believed in the code of the Jedi? That I
felt the call of the Sith, that perhaps, once, I held the galaxy by its throat?
That for every good work that I did, I brought equal harm upon the galaxy? That
perhaps the greatest of the Sith Lords knew of evil, they learned from me?"
"To have fallen so far and learned nothing that is your failing."
"He cannot kill what he cannot see, and power has blinded him long ago."
"It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it."
"If you are to truly understand, then you will need the contrast, not adherence
to a single idea."
"A culture's teachings, and most importantly, the nature of its people, achieve
definition in conflict. They find themselves... or find themselves lacking."
"Know that there was once a Darth Traya. And that she cast aside that role, was
exiled, and found a new purpose. But there must always be a Darth Traya, one tha
t holds the knowledge of betrayal. Who has been betrayed in their heart, and wil
l betray in turn."
I have found that answers come in their own time, not ours.
"There are dark places in the galaxy where few tread. Ancient centers of learnin
g, of knowledge... But I did not walk alone. To be united by hatred is a fragile
alliance at best. But my will was not law. There were disagreements, ambition,
and hunger for power. There are techniques within the Force against which there
is no defense. I was cast down, stripped of my power, exiled. I suffered indigni
ties, and fell into darkness."
"Learn from me, my mistakes, and use that knowledge to become greater than I. Th
at is all I desire. In you all my hopes rest, for the future, for the Force."
[...] the war, the true war, has never been one waged by droids, or warships, or
soldiers. They are but crude matter, obstacles against which we test ourselves.
The true war is waged in the hearts of all living things, against our own nature
s, light or dark. That is what shapes and binds this galaxy, not these creations
of man. You are the battleground. And if you fall, the death of the Republic wi
ll be such a quiet thing, a whisper, that shall herald the darkness to come."
"If you were to face an ancient Sith Lord in combat, you would learn that we are
as children playing with toys compared to the prowess of the old Masters."
"Revan was power. It was like staring into the heart of the Force. Even then, yo
u could see the Jedi he would slay etched on his soul."
[of the Mandalorians]"They will die a death that will last millennia, until all
that remains is their code, their history, and in the end, the shell of their ar
mor upon the shell of a man, too easily slain by Jedi."
[of Bastilla Shan]"It would have helped had he made her understand. But she was
always strong-willed, that one, and did not understand war as Revan did."
"Know that much may happen here, but above all, do not forget this you may trust i
n me. We cradle each other's lives, and what threatens one of us, threatens us b
oth. And if you find you cannot trust me, trust in your training. Trust in yours
elf. Never doubt what you have done. All your decisions have brought you to this
point. And now, perhaps, they shall see what you have become."
"You have failed me. Completely and utterly."
"He has brought truth, and you condemn it? The arrogance! You will not harm him.
You will not harm him ever again. As you would pass judgment on him, I have com
e to pass judgment on you all."
"Do you wish to feel the teachings born of the Mandalorian Wars? Of all wars, of
all tragedies that scream across the galaxy? You who have forever seen the gala
xy through the Force, see it through the eyes of the exile."
"How could you ever hope to know the threat you face, when you have never walked
in the dark places of the galaxy faced war and death on such a scale. If you had
traveled far enough, rather than waiting for the echo to reach you, perhaps you
would have seen it for what it was. There is a place in the galaxy where the dar
k side of the Force runs strong. It is something of the Sith, but it was fueled
by war. It corrupts all that walks on its surface, drowns them in the power of t
he dark side it corrupts all life. And it feeds on death. Revan knew the power of
such places... and the power in making them. They can be used to break the will

of others... of Jedi, promising them power, and turning them to the dark side. T
he Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of
conversion... culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from s
ave one. And that is what I sought to understand. How one could turn away from s
uch power, give up the Force... and still live. But I see what happened now. It
is because you were afraid."
"Who I am is not the question. Those are titles, words you cling to as the darkn
ess falls around you. 'Sith' is a title, yes, but like you, the title is not who
I am. It is not what I believe. For you... it is different."
"It is only through interaction, through decision and choice, through confrontat
ion, physical or mental, that the Force can grow within you."
"And what is it you think you have accomplished? If you seek to aid everyone tha
t suffers in the galaxy, you will only weaken yourself... and weaken them. It is
the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strong
est rewards. You stole that struggle from them, cheapened it. If you care for ot
hers, then dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting t
hem fight their own battles. And when they triumph, they will be even stronger f
or the victory."
"My warning to you is this do not rely on your companions to compensate for your w
eaknesses in skill. There will be times they will not be there to help you when
needed. [...] my task before you is this take your greatest weakness, devote effor
t to it, strengthen it, and I will show you how it shall strengthen your power i
n the Force."
"Do not see every enemy as an enemy see them instead as an ally, whether they know
it or not."
"You no doubt have many questions. I would be a poor teacher if I did not give y
ou the answers you seek here, now. I never destroyed Atris she had destroyed herse
lf. I merely stripped away the illusion, and brought her truth. Her teachings co
uld not be allowed to continue. And like Malachor, she was part of your past, un
resolved. She needed to be something you could confront and defeat, one last time.
It was part of your training. Part of what was needed to make you complete. She
loved you, you know, as one loves a champion. You were all that she could not b
e."
"Perhaps you were expecting some surprise, for me to reveal a secret that had el
uded you, something that would change your perspective of events, shatter you to
your core. There is no great revelation, no great secret. There is only you."
"You are greater than any I have ever trained. By killing me here you have rewarde
d me more than you can possibly know."
"And Revan knew that the true war is not against the Republic. It waits for us b
eyond the Outer Rim. And he has gone to fight it, in his own way. He left the Eb
on Hawk and its machines behind, for he knew he would not need them. And, like y
ou, he knew he must leave all loves behind as well, no matter how deeply one car
es for them. Because such attachments are not the way of the Jedi, and they woul
d only bring doom to them both in the dark places where he now walks. Perhaps yo
u shall go there with him, and do battle at the end of all things. Instead, I re
mained here... and now show others the way."
"The Republic will fall, as it always has, a fall that will take millennia."
"I? I am but a mirror, whose only purpose is to show you what your eyes cannot y
et see."
"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."
"But you will forget this. Your mind is worse than the others, so open, so trust
ing. Your feelings for her are your weakness."
"Do not honor me, fallen Jedi honor it by listening and learning. Do that, and per
haps we shall survive this thing, you and I."
"Yes, always. From the moment you awoke, I have used you. I have used you so tha
t you might become strong, stronger than I. I used you to keep the Lords of the
Sith from condemning the galaxy to death with their power unchecked. I used you
to lure them to Telos, where they could be, at last, fought and killed. I used y
ou to reveal Atris' corruption, so that her teachings could be ended before they

began. I used you to gather the Jedi so they could be destroyed. And I used you
to make those who wounded me reveal themselves, so they could be killed by the
Republic."
"When I spoke of sight before, there is a similar handicap that tends to occur a
mong those strong in the Force. They neglect their skills. Some believe they no
longer need them."
"Skill does not always draw from the Force, but it is a measure of power nonethe
less. It can grant knowledge, help steady oneself when one's thoughts are in cha
os, or grant enlightenment."
"Perhaps there will be no new age, Mandalore, no great Mandalorian crusade. Perh
aps your people fought their last battle at Malachor V, and you have been dying
ever since, a quiet death that will last centuries. And perhaps all that remains
will be what I see before me: a man, wounded by a Jedi, encased in a Mandaloria
n shell, haunted by the thought of being the last of the Mandalorians."
"He cannot help but love you, in his way. It is a pure, ideal love he holds, str
engthened by your presence and your actions."
"[...] Atris' path is one I walked long ago, and it is a chapter of my life that
has been read and closed."
"When one relies on sight to perceive the world, it is like trying to stare at t
he galaxy through a crack in the door."
"Your spirit, as diseased as it is, refuses to allow you to give up, no matter w
hat threats you face... and whatever wreckage you leave behind you."
"It is good that you have never wondered what lay beneath her robes, if her alab
aster skin was as white and unblemished as her face. Or if perhaps she bore the
scars of slavery... and if that would stir you more. Perhaps her deferent tone w
ould change once you held her by the throat, and showed her how far a Jedi can f
all."
"This wound... it is a physical thing, and will fade with time. It was necessary
... some things may only be learned from sacrifice."
"Also, in private, we will be mercifully free from the opinions of imbeciles and
fools."
"[...] it is all that is left unsaid upon which tragedies are built. More echoes
, traveling through the Force."
"The Jedi Academy on Dantooine is nothing more than a crater that echoes with th
e ghosts of the dead Jedi. And the Jedi Temple on Coruscant lies empty. The wate
rs in the Room of a Thousand Fountains have fallen still, in reverence to the fa
llen Jedi and those now lost."
"Manipulation is done through propelling events... or selected ones into motion.
It is done through teaching, through example, and through conviction. And the g
reatest of victories are not manipulations at all but simply awakening others...
to the truth of what you believe. Of hearing it echoed around you, in life."
"Direct action is not always the best way. It is a far greater victory to make a
nother see through your eyes than to close theirs forever."
"So you will do nothing? Apathy is death, worse than death because at least a ro
tting corpse feeds the beasts and insects."
The following exchange takes place during the final meeting between the Exile an
d the Jedi Masters upon Dantooine.
Master Vrook: "You were deafened."
Kreia: "At last, you could hear."
Master Kavar: "You were broken."
Kreia: "You were whole."
Master Zez-Kai Ell: "You were blinded."
Kreia: "And at last, you saw..."
