    Dialog transcript
    Eli Tarnis
    I'm departing Coruscant now, Father. The Planet Prison deploys in minutes. The Republic will have no choice but to surrender.
    Darth Angral
    You return to me as a hero of the Empire, my son. Our victory is complete.
    Hero of Tython
    I wouldn't count on that.
    Sadic
    What's this, Tarnis? A loose end? For shame.
    Eli Tarnis
    Have you come to die, Jedi?
    Hero of Tython
    Don't do this, Tarnis. You can still surrender.
    Eli Tarnis
    You'll forgive me if I don't offer you the same opportunity. Fighting petty criminals is nothing. Now you face a Sith.
    Darth Angral
    Channel your rage, my son. Don't let this Jedi steal your moment of triumph.
    Eli Tarnis
    Your blood flows through my veins, Father. I cannot fail.

    Darth Angral
    Jedi filth... you've killed my son!
    Praven
    Jedi will die for this, master. I'll see to it personally.
    Darth Angral
    You've no idea what you've unleashed, Jedi. There's no place in the galaxy to hide from my wrath.
    Hero of Tython
    I've sworn to protect the Republic. I took no pleasure in your son's death.
    Darth Angral
    I will inflict unimaginable suffering on your people. Billions will die because of you.
    Nefarid
    We already control your secret weapon facilities. All that power is ours, now.
    Darth Angral
    My son's death will be avenged on the entire Republic - and you will bow down before I let you die.
    Hero of Tython
    Your grudge is with me alone. There's no need to hurt others.
    Darth Angral
    As they die, you will suffer - and I want you to suffer before the end comes.
    Tell your pathetic Masters that Darth Angral has returned. This time, there will be no mercy. We'll meet again, Jedi. That is a promise.
    Kira Carsen
    Such a charmer. I miss him already. The Planet Prison is officially scrap metal. Looks like we saved Coruscant.
    Hero of Tython
    Couldn't have done it without you, Kira.
    Kira Carsen
    Much as I'm enjoying these toxic ruins, maybe we should get back to the Senate tower?

    Dialog transcript
    Var Suthra
    No one saw this coming, Master Satele - not even the Jedi Council.
    Satele Shan
    We sensed it for weeks, General. If you'd told us of your secret project, we might have averted this disaster.
    Var Suthra
    Here they are - the heroes of Coruscant. Glad to have you back.
    Hero of Tython
    Coruscant is safe, but I had to destroy the Planet Prison and kill Tarnis.
    Satele Shan
    Yes, we've heard. We also know Tarnis was the son of Darth Angral. Darth Angral personally led the forces that sacked Coruscant in the last war.
    Var Suthra
    Republic comm channels are being flooded with threats from that maniac vowing revenge.
    Hero of Tython
    It seems the Empire has abandoned our treaty.
    Var Suthra
    The Empire has formally disavowed Darth Angral's actions, saying he's gone rogue. It's a lie, but the Senate refuses to authorize a military response.
    Satele Shan
    For good reason. Neither the Republic nor the Jedi are prepared for another war. We would lose.
    Var Suthra
    And if the enemy turns our weapons against us, billions will die. Tarnis transmitted details of all our top secret projects to his father. We traced that transmission to the planet Ord Mantell. Darth Angral must have a base there. I need you to find it.
    Hero of Tython
    If we catch him in his lair, we could end this crisis right now.
    Var Suthra
    I doubt Angral's on that world, but his spy network certainly is.
    Satele Shan
    Master Orgus senses greatness in you, and so do I. This mission is yours.
    Kira Carsen
    I'm going, too. Master Kiwiiks left me here to help.
    Satele Shan
    Agreed. Take Kira. Train and protect her like she's your own Padawan. Like you, she has great potential, but she needs guidance to unlock it.
    Hero of Tython
    It's an important responsibility I won't take lightly.
    Kira Carsen
    We'll get to know each other - it'll be nice.
    Satele Shan
    I must inform the Council of these developments. Travel safely, young Jedi. May the Force be with you.

    Dialog transcript
    Var Suthra
    All I've ever wanted was to protect the Republic. I was stationed here when the Empire attacked Coruscant. Saw the Jedi Temple destroyed. All those Padawans and Masters cut down... I started these weapon projects in their honor.
    Hero of Tython
    "There is no death, there is only the Force." Weapons won't restore what was lost.
    Var Suthra
    Maybe not, but I can at least stop the Empire from committing more atrocities.
    I already have one of our best starships waiting for you at the spaceport. Your astromech droid is prepping it for takeoff. There's civil war on Ord Mantell. It's a no-fly zone. Dock at the orbital station there and contact me. Good luck.

    C2-N2 (Hero of Tython)
    My new master, at last. I am Seetoo Enntoo, steward of this vessel. It is my extreme good fortune to serve you.
    Barsen'thor
    Always happy to have another droid. My Teeseven unit has been invaluable.
    C2-N2 (Hero of Tython)
    The Teesevens are a fine utility model. I am programmed to provide for your "creature comforts."
    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?
    Hero of Tython
    Sounds like you're good at everything. Does that include combat?
    C2-N2 (Hero of Tython)
    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.
    Hero of Tython
    What do you consider a "non-hazardous" task?
    C2-N2 (Hero of Tython)
    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.

the Planet Prison's location to the ruins of the old Jedi Temple, the duo set off in pursuit.
Since the fastest way to reach the ruins of the Temple was through The Works, the industrial sector of the planet, Carsen led the Knight to the closest access elevator in the Justicars' Sector. Within The Works, the two Jedi fought their way through rogue droids

Deep within the Temple, the duo found the remains of the Jedi Council Chamber, which was guarded by almost a dozen Imperial saboteurs

in the chamber itself amidst the tangle of wires, computers, and generators that formed the Planet Prison.
Tarnis was in the middle of a holocomm conversation with four other Sith Lords as he informed them that the Planet Prison was almost ready to fire. The oldest of the four, a human male named Darth Angral

, congratulated Tarnis and called him "son." However, the Knight and Carsen interrupted the conversation at that point, which caused Lord Sadic

- to chide Tarnis about loose ends. Tarnis refused his opponent's request that he surrender before informing the Jedi that the Planet Prison was minutes away from firing. Tarnis drew his red lightsaber at the urging of his father and then charged at the Knight and Carsen while unleashing a storm of violent lightning. The two Jedi and the Sith dueled in front of the holocomm, and Angral was forced to watch as the Knight struck down his son before his very eyes.
Angral declared undying hatred for the young Jedi in the minutes after the battle, and he swore to unleash untold devastation upon the galaxy to gain retribution. Lord Praven

via holocomm, the Knight and Carsen learned from Suthra that Tarnis had sent the stolen superweapon files to his father before dying. Angral had declared war on the Jedi - the Knight in particular - in transmissions across all Republic channels, and since neither Din

The Empire had declared that Angral was no longer under their protection and that his actions were unsanctioned, but Suthra strongly doubted that the Empire disapproved. Suthra asked the Jedi to go to the planet Ord Mantell

as a personal ship. At Shan's request, the Knight also took on Carsen as an official Padawan and assumed the role of Carsen's teacher in Kiwiiks' absence.
The duo reached their new starship at Spaceport Hangar 74 and, after a short conversation with steward droid C2-N2
