"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)."

Arca: Sit down, Cay. The droid can wait. I have a story to tell all three of you. But you must listen as a Jedi listens.

Ulic: Cay, pay attention. It's disrespectful to fix your lightsaber when a Jedi Master is talking to you.

Cay: I'm not fixing it, Ulic. I'm tuning the blade.

Ulic: Sh.

Arca: Open your thoughts to me. Let my words become images in your minds. Listen to me, Ulic. Listen to me, Cay. Listen to me, Tott Doneeta. Through the Force, you will see things: other places, the future, the past... Light years from here, orbiting a yellow sun, is the world of Onderon, circled by its four moons.

Cay: I, I see it. It's a terrible place. Desolate. (Sound of winds.)

Ulic: I see it too. Creatures live there. Monsters with wings, big as skyhoppers. (Sound of creatures.) With terrible jaws.

Tott: I too see the vision. Is it the future or...?

Arca: The past. You see the distant past of the planet Onderon. Eons ago, the atmospheres of Onderon and it's fourth moon would touch briefly during the summer season. In those days, a number of these savage creatures learned to escape the confines of their lunar home, and migrated to the planet Onderon.

Ulic: But there are people on that planet. Primitive, helpless, they'll be slaughtered. (Sound of creatures.)

Village Man: What's that?

Village Woman: Creatures coming out of the clouds.

Village Man: They're coming this way. Look out!

Village Woman: My baby. It's got my baby!

Arca: And so it was. The peaceful Onderonians were utterly unprepared for these savage beasts. The winged creatures hunted and ate them at will, grew fat and multiplied. The gentle Onderonians were forced to develop weapons of death. In a few brief years, the Onderonians learned the pleasures of hunting, and began to kill the monsters for meat and sport.

Tott: Master, my people—the Twi'lek race of the planet Ryloth—say that war is the beginning of civilization.

Arca: Well, Tott, on the planet Onderon, that was certainly the case. Behold the vision, as the eons pass.

Ulic: I see the tribes pass away. Civilization begins. Tribal culture evolved into true civilization. But, Master Arca, the vision is strange. I see only one gigantic city on the entire planet.

Arca: There is only one city on Onderon. Thanks to the constant threat of the beasts, Onderonian society developed into one, great walled fortress called Iziz.

Tott: In the vision, it grows year by year.

Ulic: I've never seen a city so huge. There must be millions of inhabitants. (Sound of creatures.)

Cay: Watch out! The beasts are attacking!

Arca: Stay calm, Cay. It is only a vision. Year after year, the winged beasts attack the city, drawn by the scent of Onderonian flesh. But the

people develop more powerful weapons, and drove the creatures back. (Sound of blaster fire.) Inside the city, civilization ruled, but beyond it's walls, most of the planet remained a savage outland, ruled by the vicious beasts.

Onderonian Judge: For crimes committed against the city, I exile you to the wilderness beyond the walls.

Onderonian Criminal: No. No!

Arca: During the ages, it became the Onderonians' custom to exile

lawbreakers into the wilderness.

Onderonian Guard: Out you go, lawbreaker.

Onderonian Criminal: No! Have mercy! No! (Sound of creatures. Sound of creatures killing Onderonian criminal.)

Arca: At first, the monsters provided quick and efficient execution for these outcasts, but eventually, the outlaws learned to tame the flying beasts. (Sound of creatures.)

Onderonian Outcast One: Lash it down.

Onderonian Outcast Two: Get that rope secure!

Onderonian Outcast One: Watch out for those jaws! Get that muzzle on!

Arca: A few of the outcasts established themselves as powerful warlords, with great armies of vicious beasts at their command. Onderon became a divided world. A world constantly at war, as both the outlaws and the city dwellers developed more and more powerful weapons of destruction.

Ulic: The vision it's fading.

Arca: We have reached the present.

Cay: Greetings. Welcome to Onderon. My name is Cay Qel-Droma. I am one of the Jedi caretakers of this world.

Exar: May the Force be with you. My name is Exar Kun. I am a...Jedi archaeologist. Master Vodo-Siosk Baas was my teacher.

Cay: May the Force be with you. My Jedi Master, Arca, told me that you were on your way. He asked me to greet you. I'm afraid this whole planet is recovering from a battle; so there's not much in the way of luxuries. But if you'll foll...

Exar: I'm told that you have recovered a trove of Sith artifacts. Is it true that they belonged to the fallen Jedi Freedon Nadd?

Cay: Um...that is so. Master Arca has ordered them shipped directly to the Jedi planet Ossus. But I can show you the city of Iziz, where Freedon Nadd held court.

Exar: That won't do. It is imperative that an official archaeologist examine the find before it leaves the planet.

Cay: Well, why don't you explain that to Master Arca himself. (Sound of creature.) Here he is.

Exar: What an impressive flying beast he rides. I've never seen one like it.

Cay: These beasts originally come from the nearby moon. The Onderonians tame them, but this one was too vicious to be handled. Or so the Onderonians thought.

Arca: All creatures are at peace in the Force, Cay.

Nomi Sunrider, using her "tremendous powers", attacked an unresistant Ulic Qel-Droma with an attack so powerful that she permanently deafened him to the Force until the day he died.

"This datacron holds unheard of power and knowledge collected by an ancient race. You access its power and discover writings which are clearly only one small piece of a massive galactic history:

The Brotherhood of the Sith had annihilated the Cron Cluster in a supernova, sending a massive shockwave towards the planet Ossus. Home to the Jedi for countless generations, Ossus safeguarded vast libraries and storehouses of artifacts.

As the Jedi scrambled to save their treasures from the coming cataclysm, the Sith Brotherhood leaders Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma arrived to raid the planet. Exar Kun managed to claim a number of notable Jedi artifacts. Meanwhile, Ulic fought against the Republic and Jedi forces only to be challenged by his own brother, Cay.

The two brothers fought until Ulic finally struck Cay down. The shock of his brother's death left Ulic stunned with horror. The Jedi Nomi, who had once loved Ulic, was overcome with grief and used her tremendous powers to somehow sever Ulic's connection to the Force. Left powerless, Ulic wept at what he had become."

Nomi Sunrider leads thousands of Jedi in the usage of a Wall of Light so powerful that it razes Yavin IV and confines Exar Kun's spirits to his temples for the next 4 millennium.

"This datacron holds unheard of power and knowledge collected by an ancient race. You access its power and discover writings which are clearly only one small piece of a massive galactic history:

Grieving for his brother and severed from the Force, the fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma finally returned to the light. He joined the Republic forces and led them to Yavin Four, stronghold of the Dark Lord Exar Kun. The Republic fleet bombarded the moon's surface, leveling Exar Kun's temples and setting the jungles aflame.

But Exar Kun had sensed the approach of the Republic forces and laid preparations. Summoning his loyal Massassi warriors, he performed a dreadful ritual that drained them of their life essence. Exar Kun became a spirit of pure darkness.

The Jedi in the fleet sensed Exar Kun's actions. Led by Nomi, they created a "wall of light" through the Force. Exar Kun found himself trapped within the temples of Yavin Four for eternity, screaming with rage and helpless to escape."
