Rakghoul Serum Side Quest – Taris (Kotor 1)
It is believed that the rakghoul serum was an ingredient that was able to cure the plague of rakghouls that, once it infected one person, could turn the person to the form of a Rogue.
In the Jedi Civil War, a test sample that contained the cure was developed by Republic scientists, and repeated a few thousand times in order to heal the Outcasts in the republic’s reconstruction of Taris. The Republic was home to an headquarters within Taris’s Upper City as the central point of restoration as well as the site in which the scientist had perfected the cure. However there was a problem. The Sith army took notice to the public and attacked. After shoring the Republic out they took over their base. They also took over the base. troops of Sith took samples of rakghoul serum for patrolling in the Undercity to search for the destroyed Republic escape pods that were escaped from their destruction of the Endar Spire. The Sith encountered so many times with the rakghouls that the had run out of serum when Revan was able to enter the Undercity however, certain troopers who died were carrying serum samples on their bodies.
In his search to escape Taris, Revan found a sample of the serum in the Undercity and passed it on the Zelka Forn who was who was the Upper City doctor. He created the serum, distributing the serum to all who were infected and then gave it to the healer for the Outcasts, Esala who utilized it to treat affected Outcasts as they traveled towards their journey to the Promised Land. When they arrived at their destination, the Promised Land, it was not what they had hoped for. The structures, resources and defenses had were destroyed from the Sith. With no protection, the rakghouls were able to attack Outcasts however, the spread of the disease was thwarted with the help of the serum. The rakghouls grew but, over time, acquired resistance to serum. Without a way to defend from the spread of rakghoul virus, and with a stricken and diseased world all around them the Outcasts were eventually eradicated out.
About 3643 years ago The rakghoul serum was rediscovered by pirates who discovered an unopened bottle of the serum in Zelka Forn’s abandoned medical facility located in the Undercity. The serum was then given to the Jedi and later found its way into hands of the Republic doctor. The rakghouls, however, were immune to the serum long before the Outcasts were eliminated, which means that it wasn’t much more effective three hundred years after. A new serum would need been created and, for this, a new individual was required to be infected to create new antibodies. These could be then analyzed and synthesized. The controlled infection was then spread to a person after which the antibodies were isolated and a new, enhanced serum was developed and, once more it was made in large quantities.
