Wrong Facts Must Exist Here, and If Not, An Explanation Please? Edit

He was Luke's Padawan and died in 13 ABY. And according to the article he was a Dark Jedi, which makes me very confused. How can it be that Luke managed to train a Jedi, who turned to the dark side, got himself an apprentice and then died by the year 13 ABY? Please explain.

  • How exactly is this a problem? KEJ 15:10, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Species? Edit

I am not entirely sure that is his species i think he is a yinchorri Unsigned comment by Ralok Agum (talk • contribs).

ways to kill desann Edit

the two "you" say are correct but there are third one: -with strong style, jump near him use force push, dessan falls and you kill him whit two standar atacks, while i is on the floor.

it works even in jedi master, dificulty level. --Polifemo 03:55, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

  • I added it in, (although I'm not sure why you didn't just do that yourself...) --Eyrezer 05:33, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
    • What about jumping and landing on top of him? Wouldn't that cause him to fall, like it does to any other enemy. It should be possible to hack him to pieces while he's trying to get up. I haven't tried it out though. Just a theory. KEJ 10:24, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
      • no KEJ that one you menthion dosn't work, desann only move he's arms when you fall into him.--Polifemo (talk to me) 02:06, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
        • I'm glad I never tried it then ;-) KEJ 08:09, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

for the record his eyes are purple

I am reminded of my attempt to play Artus topside with bubble (gamecube vers invunerability cheat) and the lightsaber early cheat on. I knew you had to loose but I thought you had to beat him to a certain point at which he overpowers you. So i kept fighting him madly at some point he threw his saber which was then trapped in a place between two cliffs near the Raven's Claw and didnt return. Affter that he was eventualy herded between three boxes, a wall, and me were I kept at it. Then i went upstairs to swim but tied a toy rubber snake arround the triggers so i would keep attacking. When I returned the snake wrap had done its job yet Desann still stood.

  • Maby a triva type addon would be good I shall attempt to add oneSargeLIVES 01:29, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Image question Edit


Is that the game's crosshair visible on Desann's right arm? (Click the image to see a larger version.) If so, is it worth worrying about? -- SM-716 talk? 03:43, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

  • What's that ray of light in the background? KEJ 11:43, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
    • That's the sith Alchemy thing Dessaan is using when you find him in the temple. You can used it make youself temporarily more powerful/immortal I can't remember exactly which. HavetStorm 20:31, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

¨ Sorry but you´re wrong, HavetStorm. That beam thing is force nexus, or something like that, which will make the one who stepped in ti invulnerable. It can be acivated by force-pushnig the two switches on the upper floor of the arena. Hominid 21:05, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

    • Don't mean to be pedantic or argumentative, but how does what I said contradict what you said? The Sith Alchemy part is conjecture, based on the fact that the temple was built by the sith and the capabilities of the 'force nexus' are the same as many sith alchemical tools that are known to have been built inside the Massassai templesHavetStorm 16:50, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

luke/rubble Edit

Has it been explained, how luke got from the undernearth(sp?) of the rubble he got buried in after the duel with Desann on Carin? Thanks Hominid 21:00, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Powerful Sith?Edit

Under 'Feats and Abilities', it says "Desann is considered by many to be one of the most powerful Sith of all time and due to his incredible natural strength he use it as an excuse to bully his comrades into submission." I'm assuming this is just fanwank, as (1) he was never a Sith, and (2) there's no evidence to suggest that he would be on an equal footing with Palpatine, Vader, Exar Kun, Naga Sadow, Darth Bane etc. 19:21, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Desann's height Edit

Hello. Once, I found a source where Desann was described 6 feet, 6 inches, which means 198 cm. My aim is to change his 2 metres height to 198 cm. Please do not revert it. Please help me finding the source where Desann is listed as 6 feet, 6 inches. I'm also trying to find this website again. I repeat: Please do not revert my edit. 19:04, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

They are aproximately the same 6 ft 6 is the poor translation to american units based on the eyeballing or a meter next to a yard it was my conception as well for a long time. P.S if you need to look for the website it probably isn't cannon.SargeLIVES 01:07, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Immunity to Force lightning Edit

I think my last edit deserves an explanation. I specifically paid attention to this. I saved the game at a point when all I had to do to kill Desann was to hit him once with my saber. Then I started spamming Force lightning, and nothing happened even after numerous salvoes. I hope that doesn't qualify as original research any more than the 'Ways to Kill Desann' paragraph. - TopAce (Talk) 18:31, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

  • There were actually glitches in the game like that. I dont think he's really immune. --The Darkness(talk) 18:33, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Maybe, but he doesn't take as much damage from FL as any other foes. The way I observed it made his immunity quite clear. - TopAce (Talk) 18:36, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
      • Did it hit him so the blue went all over him or did it just go through him? --The Darkness (No, I am your father!) 18:37, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
        • They all hit him. The blue effect spread all over him. - TopAce (Talk) 18:46, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
          • It could be a glitch, it could be because he's immune, but I remember playing the game and I hit him with lightning, and his health went down. Not much, but it did. --The Darkness (No, I am your father!) 18:47, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
            • How could you tell that his health was going down? Did you use some sort of healthbar-showing addon? - TopAce (Talk) 18:50, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
  • If it isn't the fatal blow, then that doesn't explain that Desann takes any damage at all, unless you've been spamming FL during the whole fight and a small Fast-style hit killed him. Anyway, do you mind taking this discussion to a User Talk page? I don't fancy spamming this entire page because of such a minor edit. - TopAce (Talk) 19:02, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Desann is also invulurable to the saber throw unlike any other jedi he is able to auto-deflect a saber throw even without his oun saber! Luke or any NPC with LUKE class assigned can also deflect lightsaber throw in this way.(NightXsenator, 18/07/2010)

Desann's Saber Edit

  • In one of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy files there is a description of Desann's saber. The saber is named Retribution (as well as Tavion's Stinger). Is this information interesting enough to be mentioned in the article?
  • Some mods for Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy make it possible to choose Desann's saber in SP/MP. It makes possible to make some good screenshots of it. Should I post it? :)
