The Battle of Korriban was a large-scale conflict in 14 ABY, during the Disciples of Ragnos crisis.

On Korriban, the Disciples had gathered to resurrect a dead Sith Lord, Marka Ragnos, while the New Republic sent Jedi in great numbers known as The Korriban Strike Force to intercept the Sith, resulting in a huge battle primarily between Force users.

Prelude

"We're not heading to Korriban just yet. I just received a distress signal from Rosh."
Kyle Katarn

Prior to the battle, Luke Skywalker gathered all the available Jedi in the Grand Audience Chamber of the Massassi Temple to inform them that he discovered the Disciples of Ragnos' plan of absorbing residual Force energy from places and objects using the Scepter of Ragnos. The Disciples then headed to Korriban, to deliver the last part of their plan: resurrect Marka Ragnos.

While the Jedi were mobilizing to intercept the Cult on Korriban, Kyle Katarn received a distress signal from Taspir III from Rosh Penin, his fallen apprentice. Kyle and his other apprentice Jaden Korr decided to rescue Rosh on the Imperial-controlled planet.

Jaden and Kyle then infiltrated a large Imperial facility, where the signal came from. Eventually, the two of them split up, so Korr was able to find Rosh before Katarn. Upon seeing his friend, Jaden feared it could be a trap, and nearly killed Rosh with his lightsaber, but Kyle's warnings made Jaden spare his friend and let go of his anger.

The Twi'lek Alora, who was present and apparently expecting to use Rosh as bait to lure Jaden to the Dark side, suddenly attacked Penin, amputating his left arm. Alora and Jaden then engaged in a fierce lightsaber duel that culminated in the death of Alora at Korr's hands.

After the duel, Jaden headed to Korriban, while Kyle took Rosh back to the Praxeum to take care of his wounds.

Jaden Korr lands on Korriban.

The battle

"Go to Korriban and help Luke and the others. I'll be there as soon as I can."
Kyle Katarn instructing Jaden Korr

Jaden Korr arrived shortly after the main Jedi battle group with his Z-95 Headhunter, and rendezvoused with a friend and another student. The three entered the temple, finding Cultists and Jedi battling each other in the way.

Korr then found himself in a large room, where he pushed four statues into place, opening the way for a descending stairway.

He battled several cultists in his path while he raced towards the Valley of the Dark Lords. As he progressed, they met up with more Jedi, who helped Jaden reach the open Valley.

Upon managing to open a locked door, Jaden saw the Valley from above, where light and dark Force users were fighting each other in great numbers across the tombs. Korr began to fight his way across the valley, killing most of the Imperial and Cult forces.

Duel in Ragnos's tomb

"A mere Jedi child will not undo my return."
―Marka Ragnos — (audio)Listen (file info)

Jaden, who had by this point reached the entrance to Ragnos' tomb, entered and found Tavion who was in the process of beginning Ragnos' resurrection. The two of them engaged in a fierce lightsaber duel, with Korr eventually gaining the upper hand and forcing Tavion to take more drastic measures.

Tavion, refusing to cower like she did before Kyle Katarn on Cloud City,[1] used the scepter to resurrect Marka Ragnos. Ragnos' spirit possessed Tavion and she now used an ancient sith sword against Jaden. Korr managed to disarm the Ragnos-possessed Tavion from the scepter and stop Tavion from retaining it. Then he destroyed it, forcing Marka Ragnos' spirit back into the Chaos. When the Sith Lord left Tavion's body, she collapsed dead on the floor of the tomb, her body unable to withstand the corruption.

Aftermath

Korr destroyed the scepter and sealed the entrance to Ragnos's tomb. He then met up with Luke and Kyle, as the battle was finally over, and so was the Disciples of Ragnos cult.

Shortly after, three New Republic MC80 Liberty type Star Cruisers arrived at the planet and destroyed the Remnant Imperial II-class Star Destroyer that was providing support for the Dark Jedi and stormtroopers on the planet's surface.

Behind the scenes

If the player leads Jaden down the non-canonical dark side path in Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, the Battle of Korriban becomes a three-way struggle between the Disciples of Ragnos, the New Jedi Order, and Jaden Korr. Korr battles Jedi and Dark Jedi alike, often interrupting their duels with each other, as his objective is to take the Scepter of Ragnos for himself instead of resurrecting Marka Ragnos. If Jaden fights like this, it does end up with the player killing first Tavion and then trying to kill Jaden's own master, Kyle Katarn. Jaden defeats his former master in a lightsaber duel and after the duel he throws rocks on him. To the last, Jaden leaves with the scepter and takes control of the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer that's in orbit around the planet.

There is a glitch during the player's fight with Tavion when the player chooses the dark side ending: if the player enters the room with Tavion with a rocket launcher, and then fights Tavion with his or her lightsaber, the rocket launcher becomes the player's lightsaber hilt.
