I think he will, as a Sith Lord rising up against his Empire based on tradition (disgusted at TOC, aliens etc) I believe he would want to challenge the Prophet in person.
But then it could be a close fight. The Prophet has some incredibly powerful Force attacks and I think without a healer they could be dangerous even for Ikoral.
Maybe we should freeze this thread at this point and return after the holidays. I guess I won't have much time the next three days.
