    Attros Finn
    I need to talk to you. I have... bad news. Yuon's illness has begun to affect her body. She's losing strength, fading fast. Are you any closer to finding the last Noetikon?
    Barsen'thor
    I've found it, and the Masters have told me how to find a cure. It's in the ruins of the Jedi Temple.
    Attros Finn
    A cure! At last. Just be warned - the ruins of the temple are crawling with danger. And getting there means passing through the Works; they're not safe either. Be careful, but hurry - I don't know how long Yuon will last.
  • Barsen'thor, Qyzen Fess, Attros Finn
  • Barsen'thor's Followers killed a number of Imperial Marksmen and Gunners

    Chamma
    This is it--the database where the ritual that can shield your Master from the plague is kept.
    Vandar Tokare
    A stellar work, one part computer, one part holocron. Truly ingenious.
    Noab Hulis
    Masters, you know why we've gathered.
    Chamma
    The Jedi Order is imperiled by an ancient plague - one that warps the minds of even the wisest of Masters and turns them to the dark side.
    Nomi Sunrider
    This young Jedi has stepped forward in search of a way to help her ailing Master and save the Jedi Order.
    Bastila Shan
    But it cannot be done without our help.
    Vandar Tokare
    Millennia ago, a powerful ritual was developed to shield the Jedi from the power of this ancient plague.
    Tharis Orne
    The ritual cut off the plaguemaster from his victims, but it exacted a great price from the healer who wielded it.
    Jesper Altax
    It is once again necessary for someone to use the ritual.
    Wole Vahn
    The ritual is a difficult one to learn, Jedi, and will take many hours of deep meditation and study.
    Arca Jeth
    Are you ready to learn it?
    Barsen'thor
    Yes. I am ready, Master.
    Bastila Shan
    Then open your mind, and we will teach you....
    ...
    Arca Jeth
    You seem to have mastered everything we have to show you, Jedi.
    Nomi Sunrider
    Such a bright, inquisitive mind. It has been an honor to teach you.
    Vandar Tokare
    But remember - the shielding ritual will draw on your strength, and you can only regain what you've spent when the plaguemaster's bond with his victims is broken.
    Barsen'thor
    How do I break the bond between plaguemaster and victim?
    Chamma
    Death was what broke the hold of the original plaguemaster, Terrak Morrhage. But there may be another way.
    Noab Hulis
    You now have the knowledge you need to save your Master. Use it wisely and well, and may the Force be with you.

    Mysterious Sith
    Reckless, foolish Jedi. So eager to find a cure for your Master, you led us right to the prize. My master and I are most grateful.
    Barsen'thor
    It's too late - I've already learned the ritual.
    Mysterious Sith
    Yes, and you're the only one who will learn it.
    Barsen'thor
    Who is your master? What does he want?
    Mysterious Sith
    If my master wanted you to know his name, he'd give it to you himself.
    Barsen'thor
    No one is going to stop me from saving Yuon Par, whoever you serve.
    Mysterious Sith
    Aaarrrgh! There. No more terminal. No more ritual. No miracle healing this time.
    Barsen'thor
    Except for mine, you mean. My healing.
    Mysterious Sith
    What good will that do you? The technique kills those who wield it.
    Barsen'thor
    For the last time, tell me who your master is.
    Mysterious Sith
    My master is the Jedi Order's demise. Their lies, their pretense, their false serenity will be undone - as you would have been if you'd used the technique. How many could you have shielded before it killed you? One? Two? Even if it was a hundred, ultimately, you would collapse.
    Barsen'thor
    I guess I'll just have to find your master, then.
    Mysterious Sith
    And do what? Kill him? That's not the Jedi way, now is it? The Jedi way is weak and cowardly. Even now, you talk rather than attack.

    Syo Bakarn
    Finally - there you are. I've been kept apprised of your situation - the Council is very concerned about Yuon's health. We've been trying to contact you for hours. Did you find anything in the Jedi Temple?
    Barsen'thor
    The only real cure is to stop the person who's behind the illness, but I can shield her temporarily.
    Syo Bakarn
    Then do what you can for now. Our first priority is Yuon's life. Hurry back - Yuon is fading fast. Any delay could be costly.

    Attros Finn
    Oh, you're here! Quickly - we're barely detecting a pulse on Yuon. If there was any time to test what you learned in the temple, it's now.
    Barsen'thor
    The Masters taught me well.
    Attros Finn
    Yuon's life is in your hands now.
  • Barsen'thor, Qyzen Fess, Attros Finn

    Yuon Par
    Padawan- no. No, I was making you a Jedi. What happened? I feel... so much better. But why do you look so weak? What did you do?
    Barsen'thor
    Don't worry about me, Yuon. I'm just glad you're okay. I shielded you from the person who was making you ill, but it took some of my strength.
    Yuon Par
    Thank you, and... I'm sorry. The last thing I remember clearly is... your ceremony on Tython. Oh, my student, I am sorry I wasn't a better Master.
    Barsen'thor
    I wouldn't be the Jedi I am if it weren't for you. I wish you had told me about your condition sooner.
    Yuon Par
    That honors me more than you know. I see now the foolishness of hiding it. Now I am... more myself.
    Qyzen Fess
    You are Yuon Par. Is no other you can be.
    Yuon Par
    I could feel someone else in my mind. Polluting my thoughts... twisting them.
    Barsen'thor
    The plaguemaster. You won't be fully cured until he is defeated. Can you remember any specifics about this person?
    Yuon Par
    I really wish I could give you more details, but my memory of that time is... hazy at best.
    Attros Finn
    Pardon me. The Council wishes to speak with you when you're ready.
    Yuon Par
    Go to the Council - we can speak later.
    Attros Finn
    Thank you again for helping Yuon. And... teaching me a few things as well.

    Satele Shan
    Ah, you're here. Thank you for contacting us so quickly. We're sorry to have to pull you away from Yuon.
    Jaric Kaedan
    We wouldn't have called you here if it wasn't urgent. First, tell us what you've learned about Yuon's illness.
    Barsen'thor
    It's a plague created by a Sith named Terrak Morrhage. I've shielded Yuon from its effects, but the only cure is to stop the person who's controlling it. Here's what we know....
    Jaric Kaedan
    Interesting. And... worrying. We've started to receive disturbing communications from other Masters. We fear Yuon's illness is not an isolated case.
    Barsen'thor
    Are you sure it's the same illness?
    Jaric Kaedan
    We admit the connection seemed tenuous - but the Masters each repeat the same phrase: "the darkness is coming."
    Barsen'thor
    The illness was created by Terrak Morrhage, but a different Sith is using it now. I don't know his name, but I fought his apprentice in the temple.
    Syo Bakarn
    Yes. It's imperative that we find this Sith before the illness spreads further.
    Qyzen Fess
    Hunting one who struck Yuon down. Is noble goal, Herald.
    Syo Bakarn
    Unfortunately, we have no leads. We can only hope that tracking down and shielding the victims will help lead us to this Sith.
    Barsen'thor
    Yuon seemed to remember someone controlling her mind--but she couldn't give any details.
    Satele Shan
    The small number of victims suggests that this Sith needs some sort of contact with his victims to control them. We hesitate to ask any more sacrifice of you - you've already done so much. But with the terminal in the temple destroyed, you are the only one capable of shielding the afflicted Masters and stopping this Sith, whoever he is.
    Barsen'thor
    I will do whatever I can.
    Satele Shan
    We all have faith in you. But if the Sith who's controlling these Masters is drawing strength from them as well as turning them....
    Syo Bakarn
    Then it is imperative that the Masters are freed from his control as quickly as possible.
    Jaric Kaedan
    You'll need to be able to move freely around the galaxy. To that end, we've prepared a ship for you in the spaceport.
    Barsen'thor
    Thank you, Masters. I will use it well. Where am I going?
    Jaric Kaedan
    The missing Masters were last heard from on Taris and Nar Shaddaa. Find them, and break the plaguemaster's hold on them.
    Satele Shan
    Say your goodbyes to Yuon. But time is of the essence. Good luck.

    Yuon Par
    Ah, it's good to see you through my own eyes once more. What did the Council have to say?
    Barsen'thor
    Other Masters have fallen ill - the Council has asked me to save them.
    Yuon Par
    I see. But there is still someone we must find: the person behind this, whoever was in my mind.
    Barsen'thor
    Are you sure you don't remember anything specific about your tormentor?
    Yuon Par
    I have tried, but everything is hazy. Stop him, so that I don't have to be shielded anymore. So your strength can be restored. Remember. Let your instincts guide you. Keep to the Jedi Code. And may the Force be with you.
    Qyzen Fess
    Trust, Yuon. Will be well.

    C2-N2 (Barsen'thor)
    My new master, at last. I am Seetoo Enntoo, steward of this vessel. It is my extreme good fortune to serve you.
    Barsen'thor
    Glad to have you aboard. Tell me your functions, Seetoo. I see you're programmed for protocol.
    C2-N2 (Barsen'thor)
    Diplomacy is merely my subfunction. As a Jedi, you bear considerable responsibility. I will relieve you of lesser burdens.
    C2-series droids represent the latest advances in everything from starship technical maintenance to nutritional advice tailored for your specific organic needs. Welcome aboard this Corellian Defender-class Light Corvette. It was custom-built to offer a Jedi both first-rate combat performance and meditation amenities. Along with the usual accommodations, you'll find a secure captain's locker for storing valuables. Your bridge contains an ever-updating map of the galaxy. It's quite beautiful to look at.
    Priority alerts from the Republic network are accessible at the HoloNet console. Long-range communications are available via the holoterminal. And finally, the ship's intercom will inform your crew that you wish to meet. Do you have any questions, master?
    Barsen'thor
    Sounds like you're good at everything. Does that include combat?
    C2-N2 (Barsen'thor)
    As you can see, I am not equipped for physical danger. My function is to maintain this starship as your home away from home. I am happy to assist you with any non-hazardous task, of course. I pride myself on the utmost attention to detail.
    Barsen'thor
    What do you consider a "non-hazardous" task?
    C2-N2 (Barsen'thor)
    I am programmed to modify other technology. I can also perform long-range surveillance and diplomacy. I'm quite useful, I assure you.
    The ship is fueled and ready, master. Whenever you are ready to depart, consult the galaxy map on the bridge. The ship's computers will handle the rest.

Returning to the Senate Tower, the Jedi used the technique to shield Par from the plaguemaster's influence. Although she regained consciousness and felt considerably better, she was still not fully cured until the enigmatic plaguemaster was defeated.

, gathered on Coruscant, summoned the Consular and Fess and informed them that Master Par's was not an isolated case, as other Masters had begun falling out of contact, supposedly falling victim to the plague. In order to stop the disease from spreading, the Sith controlling it had to be defeated, but the Jedi had no clue to the plaguemaster's identity. As such, the young Jedi was asked by the Council to travel around the galaxy, to use the newly acquired technique on the Masters and to try gathering any further clues from them. In order to do so, he was provided with a personal starship
