"Kreia is setting the stage for what we imagined KOTOR3 to be, and as we had a sense for the power that we wanted those Sith Lords to reveal, her predictions are accurate. And yes, she had a number of Sith holocrons that she had read (the ones on Telos)."

@shootingnova: Sure thing

Left it out originally due to finding it hard to determine if was Nadd or Kun doing it, but I can just add in a "possibly" healed to note the ambiguity of the issue

Unless some extra material source helped clear up the narrative that I missed? :hmm

@ct123: Yeah, there's (apparently) a source which states that due to the ambient nexus, Nadd was able to heal Kun effortlessly, IIRC.
