Time Sorcerer Legion

Otherwise known as the Legion of Time-Sorcerers.

The light side of the Cosmic Powers, also commonly known as the Quantum Force or simply the Cosmic Powers, was the side of the Cosmic Powers aligned with honesty, compassion, mercy, self-sacrifice, and other positive emotions. For the most part, the Time-Sorcerer simply referred to this as the Cosmic Powers.

Quote The largest group of proponents and teachers of the light side were the Time-Sorcerer Order, who strove to maintain peace and justice throughout the galaxy. The Time-Sorcerer were well aware of the dangers of the dark side of the Cosmic Powers and were dedicated opponents of its use, as it represented corruption and a disregard for the natural order of the universe.

The dark side was considered the domain of the Imperial Tauron Centaurion , whom the Time-Sorcerer attempted to destroy in order to keep the Cosmic Powers in balance. The Cosmic Powers played a large part in the Time-Sorcerer use of a Plasma Sword , giving them the ability to foresee events in the future giving the impression of heightened awareness and amazingly quick reflexes that kept them from accidentally injuring themselves in combat and allowing them to perform other feats, such as using a Electromagnetic Plasma Sword to deflect incoming blaster fire,Temporal Centaurion energy manipulations,renegade Temporal Wizard or Temporal Guardian energy weapons manipulations. A Time-Sorcerer would use the Cosmic Powers to help the construction of their Electromagnetic Plasma Sword, both to assemble its intricate innards and, initially, to charge its Zero Point Energy power cell.

With experience, there were a seemingly infinite number of things a Time-Sorcerer could achieve through use of the light side. This did not only apply to Time-Sorcerer, of course, but indeed any Cosmic Powers-sensitive. The Time-Sorcerer used their powers to gain greater knowledge, in contrast to their ancient enemies, the Imperial Tauron Centaurion use it for personal,evil gain. Whereas the Imperial Tauron Centaurion would use their powers to try to rule the Tauron galaxy, the Time-Sorcerer would use their power to fight in its defense and to guide its direction, although this difference did not always appear so clear-cut. Many people were distrustful of the Time-Sorcerer Order's great influence on the leaders of the Old Republic. ==Nature of the light side== Edit

The light side of the Cosmic Powers was aligned with happiness, joy, love, and benevolence, which some believed nurtured the light side and provided insight into its ethical uses. It was generally concerned with the ideas of good, generosity, healing, and wisdom, as opposed to evil, harm, and hasty judgment. In order to achieve harmony with the light side of the Cosmic Powers, its practitioners would often meditate to clear themselves of emotion; particularly negative emotions such as aggression, anger, and hatred, since these were shown to open a Time-Sorcerer to the possibility of acceptance of the dark side. Members of the Legion of Time-Sorcerers have claimed being a Temporal Wizard,they have the basic control of the primary cosmic elements of the universe.Air,Water,Earth and Fire.In a sence,they do as a Chrono Mage can levitate in the air,control air currents,manipulate water,I've or snow,levitate earth and rock and manipulation of plasma fire.

Strangely enough, and despite obvious contradictions, the light side was treated as being both a semi-intelligent entity with definite intentions and a nonsentient essence of good. Which view was embraced appears to have been a personal decision. According to the self-aware interpretation, the light side was held to actively influence events to the degree that some Time-Sorcerer thought of themselves as mere "tools" of the Cosmic Powers. Though this implied a lack of choice regarding an individual's fate, the Time-Sorcerer, as leading proponents of the light side, insisted that it was, rather, "the ultimate free will." This they explained as being because the Cosmic Powers (at least the light side) did not compel anyone. A destiny could be accepted or spurned. And all choices along the way were free to make.Members of the Legion of Time-Sorcerers have been known to use aspects of the darker paranormal abilities,without becoming evil.

Since Quantum Force was also the name of the Cosmic Powers itself, before referring only to the light side, it could mean that the light side is also the "normal" nature of the Cosmic Powers; this view was not shared by the Potentium followers who, according to Time-Sorcerer orthodoxy, misinterpreted it by stating that since the Cosmic Powers was inherently good, the dark side was not evil, either.

==Known light side Cosmic Powers powers and techniques== Edit

The light side of the Cosmic Powers was generally harder to use than the dark side, this being because dark side Cosmic Powers powers are all aggressive and easily fueled by anger or hatred. This allowed darksiders to advance faster, but they were not inherently more powerful than the lightsiders. Light-sided Cosmic Powers abilities are virtually all defensive and passive in nature. While there are light side abilities for increasing ones strength or courage, or incapacitating an enemy, none of them are truly aggressive (with the notable exceptions of Electric Judgment and Sever Cosmic Powers).

The largest group of proponents and teachers of the light side were the Time-Sorcerer Order, who strove to maintain peace and justice throughout the galaxy. The Legion is one of the eldest temporal forces for good in the Greater Multiverse.Their origins date back to the last days of the Old Space Sorcerers Legion and extends from the Atlantean Alpha Omega Special Forces Operations Group. Time Sorcerer were originally also known as either Space Sorcerers or Technomages as Elric Sarkhon in the early days of the Legion.Many travel led in pre warp Light Drive Star Palace ships,that either traveled about the Atlantean Star System,assisting members of the Imperial Atlantean Starfleet.Many Space Sorcerers took signing on aboard Atlantean Sleeper Ships.Atlantean Space Sorcerers were given ranks like General or Colonel to lead forces of Alpha Omega Special Forces Operations Group's and Imperial Atlantean Colonial Marines to the Twelve Colonies of Atlantis.Although Sleeper Ships took years to journey to other star systems,their influence and power grew slowly over the decades. The Technomages are a group of sentient beings from the fictional Old Maveric Universe. The technomages shown in the television series are primarily human, but in the "Technomage Trilogy" books, apprentices and mages of other races including Centauri are named. They are described as using "science to create the appearance of magic". Galen, a Technomage, was a regular character on the spin-off series, Crusade.

Contents Origins Edit In the "Technomage Trilogy" of Old Maveric Universenovels, it is revealed that the technology in question consists of bio-technological implants, and that the process of installing the implants and adjusting to them is excruciatingly painful. The presence of these implants means that technomages are effectively cyborgs. Eventually it is also revealed that the technology was supplied by the Shadows who originally had plans to turn them into warriors of chaos and destruction. Unbeknownst to all but a few technomages, these technorganic implants were created by kidnapping a member of the same species as a candidate and using their body as an incubator; this process was excruciatingly painful, took years to complete, and culminated in the implants being forcibly extracted from the incubator resulting in their death. This was first done on the young of a race of similar age to the Minbari who were called the Taratimude, who eventually became extinct, but not before spreading the Technomage order to other races including humans.

It appears that Atlantean Alpha Omega Corps black ops was attempting to create its own Technomages, which was to have been expressly spelled out in the final episode of the first season of Crusade, but as the show was canceled after only 13 episodes it was never filmed.[citation needed]

Technomage powers Technomages are shown to have many different powers over the course of both Old Maveric Universeand Crusade. Such powers include being able to cast a shield around their bodies to absorb damage or contain atmosphere in hostile environments, hurl fireballs, generate holograms, cloak themselves in invisibility, and establish real-time communication with another Technomage regardless of distance.

Technomages may choose to establish a "place of power" for themselves, such as a particular planet. In doing so, they develop a strong connection with that place, and to some extent, a dependency on that connection.

Through the course of the "Technomage ", Galen and Isabelle uncover several energetic, primal abilities that underlie the conventional mage abilities and relate to their connection with the Shadows. Isabelle discovered a spell that allows mages to intercept the communications sent to Shadow agents like Morden or the Drakh.

Originally The Primal Abilities of the Technomage Implants are as follows. Invisibility, Communion with the Shadows ("base" for the Communication spell), Shadow Skin (a type of energy shield), Destruction Sphere ("base" of the Fireball "spell"), Healing, Access to "Tech" outside of the Mage, and a type of energy blast (Access to "Inner Tech"). Galen stated these were the only ones he's discovered, bringing the "Base" or Primal spell count to seven. leanse Mind was a crucial Force power that was employed by Time Sorcerer Consulars of the Time Sorcerer Order. It allowed a member of the Time Sorcerer Consulars to negate an on-going mind-affecting Force power from themselves or an ally within their line of sight.

The Time-Sorcerer were well aware of the dangers of the dark side of the Cosmic Powers and were dedicated opponents of its use, as it represented corruption and a disregard for the natural order of the universe. The dark side was considered the domain of the Imperial Tauron Centaurion , whom the Time-Sorcerer attempted to destroy in order to keep the Cosmic Powers in balance.

Breath control Technical information Alignment Universal Power Historical information Notable practitioners Qui-Gon Jinn[1] Obi-Wan Kenobi[1] Luke Skywalker[2] Jaina Solo[3] Meetra Surik[4] Era(s) Old Republic era[4] Rise of the Empire era[1] New Republic era[5] Legacy era[3] Affiliation Time Sorcerer Order[1] New Time Sorcerer Order[3] [Source] "Still your breathing, let the trace amounts of air in your lungs hold you. The Force can sustain you... listen to it." ―Kreia[src] Using the Force power breath control, a Time Sorcerer could literally numb the body's instinct to shut itself down after long periods without oxygen, allowing the user to be able to go without breathing for longer periods than he or she ordinarily could by using the Force to reserve the amounts of air in the lungs. It was believed that some users of the technique could hold their breath for hours or even days with this power. This ability used independently, however, would not prevent anything entering or leaving the respiratory system of the user. In some cases, the user would require some kind of Force barrier in, or around the nose/throat region to keep poisonous gases or water out. The necessity of such a barrier would depend on the air/water pressure in the direct vicinity, and the user's ability to naturally seal their airways. This was a very effective ability in situations where the air was very thin, underwater, or in any environment with toxic fumes.

Center of Being Historical information Eras Rebellion era Affiliation Time Sorcerer Order [Source] Center of Being was a stance used in lightsaber combat. It could also be used for meditation. The stance was used by members of the old Time Sorcerer Order. Users of this stance would hold the lightsaber horizontally, with the lightsaber hilt just below the chin. The meditative stance would find use in combination with more passive and defensive forms. One who fell deeply into this style could almost unconsciously defend from even the most flowing random attacks and feints. Detoxify Poison was a Control-based Force power that allowed a Force-user to detoxify poisons or eject them from their body in a much shorter amount of time than would normally be possible. It could also be used to cleanse their body of alcohol, allowing the individual to remain sober while consuming vast amounts of the drink.[1]

During a meeting with Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett, Count Dooku made use of this power to rid himself of the Karatos Plague that Fett had used to poison him.[2]

Cade Skywalker used this power to resist the Ixetal cilona administered by Darth Maladi. Maladi later commented that the power was similar to powers used by the Tauron Temporal Centaurion. Flashburn was a term used by the Time Sorcerer Order to describe the reaction in which certain Time Sorcerer or Force-sensitives shutdown areas of their minds in reaction to emotional trauma. With sections of their memory seemingly ceasing to exist, those who used the technique were unable to remember details about the event at the center of the trauma. Force Body was a type of Force technique which allowed any Force-sensitive to push their body's endurance past a safe limit, ignoring and sacrificing their health and well-being in order to sustain their connection to the Force. Very powerful connection to the Force was required for this ability's use. With this, Time Sorcerer could live through what would otherwise kill them.

This ability could also be used to prevent the user from being severed from the Force.[source?] In addition, the ability shared similarities with Force valor and Enhance Attribute. Force Enlightenment was a passive/supplementary light side Force power. The most well-known Time Sorcerer who used this power frequently was Meetra Surik, who learned it after a significant conversation with Time Sorcerer Masters Vrook Lamar, Kavar, and Zez-Kai Ell.

When activated, this power took the Force powers a Time Sorcerer was most skilled in, pushing them to the highest degree that the Time Sorcerer had previously mastered during his or her routine training. The affected powers that the Time Sorcerer Exile used to enlight were Force speed, Force Defend (Force Armor or Force Shield), and Force valor. The end result was an "enlightened" Time Sorcerer, having unlocked and harnessed fully their ability in that technique. The Force ghost was the soul and essence of a deceased Force-sensitive who denied the will of the Force upon death, yet was able to interact with the living, albeit not physically.[1] Some Tauron Temporal Centaurion Lords learned similar techniques, which in some cases allowed them to physically interact with their environment.

I drew on your link with the Force to become more solid, just as I draw on it now to become visible to you." ―The ghost of Aidan Bok to Tash Arranda[src] Luke Force Ghost Leg0 Luke Skywalker's Force ghost, as he appeared to Cade Skywalker.

While most Time Sorcerer would lose their bodily envelope and become one with the totality of the Force upon their death, some had learned a technique allowing them to retain their own identities separate from the Force for a time. Those individuals could linger in the physical world in the form of "Force Spirits," nonphysical entities that exhibited most traits and abilities they had in life.[2] According to the knowledge contained in Asli Krimsan's holocron, that feat could be achieved by sublimating one's organic cells into a state of pure energy.[3]

In its "normal" state, a Force Spirit could only interact with other noncorporeal entities. In order to be heard or seen by the living, the Spirit had to manifest itself.[2] There were different types of manifestation. On a basic level, a Force ghost could appear as a floating, milky gray mass of energy that lacked distinctive features.[4] But it could also manifest itself as the exact image of the dead being during their lifetime, only transparent and emitting a bluish glow.[5] While it could appear to anyone it wished, a spirit could not choose to become audible or visible to only some beings and not the others, since the ability to perceive the manifestation depended on the beholder's strength in the Force.[2] While many Force ghosts could appear as a vision of their former selves unmarked by injury or disease,[3] others still bore the marks of what killed them. The ghost of Aidan Bok wore tattered robes and had gaping wounds in its body, the marks left by a lightsaber.[4] Sometimes, a particular Force ghost would bind itself to a Force-sensitive as a guardian spirit for the purpose of providing wisdom, continuing training, and offering aid.[6]

In theory, Force spirits could neither harm or be harmed by physical entities, due to their spiritual nature. For the same reason, they could pass through solid matter effortlessly and were never hampered in their movements.[2] While some spirits would simulate the walk of the living beings, subject to gravity,[5] others would hover and drift above ground level. However, in some cases, a spirit could acquire temporary solidity by drawing on a living creature's link with the Force, which allowed it to actually touch that creature. Notably, the ghost of Aidan Bok could make itself solid enough to shove Tash Arranda through a doorway.[4]

A manifested spirit could wield Force powers, although not all of them. It also had the ability to travel instantaneously to any point in the galaxy by force of will. That power, however, required that the spirit be familiar with the destination. The presence of the Force at the place of arrival was also necessary for that ability to work, since it acted as a beacon.[2]

History Edit "Eternal life…" "The ultimate goal of the Tauron Temporal Centaurion, yet they can never achieve it; it comes only through the release of self, not the exaltation of self. It comes through compassion, not greed. Love is the answer to the darkness." ―Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn[src] According to the Time Sorcerer tradition, death was a part of life, and it meant becoming one with the Force. In death, sentients lost their ability to communicate with the living, but mastery of certain obscure paths of learning could avert it.

The origins of that knowledge, as well as its history, are not known. Ancient Time Sorcerer of the Galactic Republic such as Arca Jeth, as well as Sith Lords, knew a secret which could enable the user's essence to "survive death", but this knowledge was somehow lost over the millennia. However, it was secretly preserved over the millennia by the native Ysanna, descendants of Time Sorcerer trapped on the world and slowly driven to barbarism.

Rediscovery Edit "Just as he was drifting off, a familiar voice came into Obi-Wan's head. There were others, Padawan, it said. Obi-Wan let out a long breath. The voice was Qui-Gon's. His deceased Master had always been there to help him, and still was…even in death. Others were involved in Lundi's search for the Holocron. Contact them... Obi-Wan opened his eyes. Thank you, Master..." ―The voice of Force ghost Qui-Gon Jinn advises his former Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi en route to a mission to the planet Kodai in 29 BBY to recover the Tauron Temporal Centaurion Holocron of King Adas.[src] Qui-Gon Jinn was the first of the recent Time Sorcerer who rediscovered this secret with the assistance of a shaman of the Whills. Qui-Gon's spirit guided Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi and revealed to them the secret of retaining one's individuality after becoming one with the Force. Yoda during his exile taught it to another Time Sorcerer Master, Qu Rahn. The Dark Woman also learned of it at some point.

Death for those Time Sorcerer were different: their spirits could retain their individuality and could return as voices, dreams, or apparitions at will, so that they could help those in need of their guidance. On death, their bodies vanished; this was not the case with Qui-Gon, however.

Obi-Wan Kenobi SWGTCG Obi-Wan Kenobi, as he appeared on Mustafar.

This state was temporary, as Force ghosts were an intermediate state between life and afterlife; after a certain amount of time, they would then have to move on to the Netherworld of the Force, another realm of existence. Darth Vader learned of this ability through Darth Sidious, and upon his death, the spirits of Kenobi and Yoda completed his training by granting him the last step in becoming a spirit. Anakin's spirit appeared as that of his younger self, prior to his fall to the dark side.

Similar techniques Edit Certain Sith Lords had also discovered similar techniques. Occasionally their bodies would fade as Time Sorcerer would, though like Time Sorcerer this was not a prerequisite for becoming a Force ghost. It was not uncommon for the spirits of Sith Lords to remain, bound to the living world through an object, location, or simply due to the force of their malice and hatred. Unlike the Time Sorcerer, however, the Tauron Temporal Centaurion found little peace in this form, instead existing for restless centuries, eventually driven insane by solitude, memories, or dark side inflicted madness. In many ways, these techniques differed from those taught by the Time Sorcerer; the most distinct difference being the user's limited ability to interact with his surroundings. One proficient Tauron Temporal Centaurion user of these techniques was Exar Kun.

Notable Tauron Temporal Centaurion such as Darth Andeddu and Darth Bane feared their own mortality rather than embracing it and becoming ghosts of the Force such as their Time Sorcerer counterparts. Due to this fact they sought ways to escape death and live on indefinitely. Though there was much speculation, Bane's body did not disappear and become one with the Force when he died. His soul was absorbed into his apprentice's body and dominated by her soul leaving behind only a trace of his soul. In this case and many others the Tauron Temporal Centaurion lived on only in the small essences of their souls that they embedded into their Tauron Temporal Centaurion holocron's. Where as the many Time Sorcerer who believed that there was no death only the Force lived on forever through the acceptance of their death. The Tauron Temporal Centaurion believed that the Force would free them and break their chains that bound them to their mortal coil.[7]

During the original trilogy, fans and Expanded Universe writers believed that this happened to all Time Sorcerer who died, even fallen Time Sorcerer who repented at the end of their lives, such as Dargo Vader and the Time Sorcerer Ulic Qel-Droma. In the latter case, the vanishing was a sign that his spirit was redeemed. In works such as Tales of the Time Sorcerer, most Time Sorcerer who die are seen dissolving, and sometimes later appearing as ghosts.

Many questions arose during The Phantom Menace, when Qui-Gon Jinn's body did not vanish after his duel with Dargo Maul, and instead was cremated on a Time Sorcerer funeral pyre like Vader. In Revenge of the Tauron Temporal Centaurion it is made known that "dying AND maintaining one's identity" is not in fact what happens to every Time Sorcerer, but an ability acquired by Qui-Gon's spirit and passed on to Yoda and Obi Wan.

Qui-Gon Jinn and other differencesEdit "We never see the ghost of Qui-Gon; he's not that accomplished. He's able to retain his personality, but he's not able to become a corporal ghost." ―George Lucas on Qui-Gon's Force ghost ability[src] Qui-Gon Jinn was the first character to show Takes of the Time-Sorcerers audiences that not all Time Sorcerer became Force ghosts upon dying (by virtue of his body not disappearing at death), but he was established in Attack of the Clones as a voice addressing Anakin Skywalker, and also in Revenge of the Tauron Temporal Centaurion as the first G-canon character to learn how to become a Force ghost, despite his body not disappearing at death. The implication is that one can learn how to be a Force ghost even after dying a standard death. Mara Jade Skywalker did something similar after dying. She only faded away when Jacen (secretly Dargo Caedus) entered the room in a last-ditch effort to inform the Time Sorcerer about him, which would seem to imply that a Force-user who has mastered the ability to turn into a Force ghost has control of their body. Qui-Gon Jinn, as a Force ghost, is also seen to appear to both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in the Clone Wars animated series episode, "Ghosts of Mortis."[15]

Anakin Skywalker Edit It is explicitly stated in Champions of the Force and the Databank on the official site that the organic part of Anakin's body disappeared, and that Luke just burned his suit and mechanical parts for ritualistic purposes.

Controversy sparked when, in the DVD of Return of the Time Sorcerer, Sebastian Shaw's Force ghost was replaced by that of Hayden Christensen's image, thus removing Shaw's Force ghost from canon and placing Christensen's in its stead.

Other problemsEdit Spirits copy1 The Force ghosts on Endor in the original Return of the Time Sorcerer

Another problem that remains to be retconned is the existence of spirits of Tauron Temporal Centaurion and Dark Time Sorcerer. In both the novel and the comic book version of Revenge of the Tauron Temporal Centaurion, the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn tells Yoda that only light-siders may live on as Force ghosts, and that this is something that dark-siders cannot learn. However, in Dark Lord: The Rise of Dargo Vader, Dargo Sidious (who mastered and perfected the technique with the use of clone bodies himself) reveals that the ancient Tauron Temporal Centaurion Lords once had the ability to "survive death", but this knowledge was somehow lost over time. It is unclear which Sith Lords qualify as "ancient" in this context, although Skere Kaan and Qordis were the last known Tauron Temporal Centaurion to have escaped being lost in the Netherworld of the Force before Palpatine. It could be possible that Qui-Gon was misinformed or rather the concept of it only applying to Light side users was simply one of his many (often radical) theories. There is also the distinct possibility that light side Force ghosts and dark side Force ghosts are fundamentally different, and that's what Qui-Gon meant. Indeed Time Sorcerer Force ghosts seem to be "freed" into the netherworld by the passing of their physical forms and conversely, Tauron Temporal Centaurion Force ghosts seem to be "trapped" or attached by death, be it to a relic (the Muur Talisman, Ulic Qel-Droma's Tauron Temporal Centaurion amulet, etc.) or to specific locations (such as the Massassi Temples in Yavin IV, ancient Tauron Temporal Centaurion tombs, etc.). This however has yet to be confirmed.

This question applies to non-Time Sorcerer, such as Morgan Katarn who have appeared in that form. It is assumed that spirits of Force-sensitives, although not fully trained Time Sorcerer when they lived, can be manifested by the Force in a Force nexus (places where it is extremely strong), such as the Valley of the Time Sorcerer. Also, the Tauron Temporal Centaurion Lord Ajunta Pall lived on through the Force in such a manner as a Force ghost, though it is relatively unknown how or why he remained. However, it can be speculated that his extreme rage and anger made his presence linger. This has been applied to Exar Kun, who used the dark side to feed off of the life force of the Massassi just before he died. It may be possible that spirits of other Sith Lords latched onto a place strong in the dark side, feeding off of it like a parasite. The process may be explained in a future novel or other source.

Non-canonEdit The non-canonical characters Tag Greenley and Bink Otauna become Force-ghosts after dying in the explosion of the second Death Star, and appeared on Endor next to Obi-Wan, Yoda, and both a younger and older vision of Anakin Skywalker.

Mace Windu appears as a Force ghost in the alternate history comic Takes of the Time-Sorcerers Infinities: The Empire Strikes Back in a vision to Dargo Vader, though this may only be a mental vision in Vader's mind as opposed to an actual Force ghost.

The Force ghost versions of Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and Ben Kenobi are playable characters on LEGO Takes of the Time-Sorcerers II: The Original Trilogy and LEGO Takes of the Time-Sorcerers: The Complete Saga.

In the Takes of the Time-Sorcerers Tales story "Skippy the Time Sorcerer Droid", the title character (otherwise known as R5-D4) becomes a Force ghost following his destruction by the Empire.

In the Robot Chicken: Takes of the Time-Sorcerers special, Jar Jar Binks is turned into a Force ghost after Dargo Vader ejects him from an airlock.

The Force Unleashed Ultimate Tauron Temporal Centaurion Edition depicts that Obi-Wan's Force ghost is able to be affected by Starkiller's Force attacks, including Force lightning.

Alternate applicationsEdit

Although it was believed that malevolent Force-users could not employ Force healing, this was a wrong assumption. The dark side could in fact be used to heal, but, twisted by the dark side, such power came at a terrible price.


Mara heals trooper Mara Jade Skywalker|Mara Jade]] using Force healing on a stormtrooper.]] The most 'benign', to the user at least, of these side effects was the healing being temporary, and requiring renewed applications or constant concentration to remain active. Among the dark side practitioners despite this discouraging result was Dargo Bane. By focusing on the pain and anguish of others, he fueled the dark side and could sustain or invigorate himself. After being poisoned by the Brotherhood of Darkness, he resorted to using this form of Force Healing to keep himself alive long enough to reach Caleb, a true Force healer. This survival he accomplished by murdering a farmer's children before the man's eyes—the pain of the children's death coupled with their father's agony prior to his own death was enough to sustain Bane for hours. The Imperial Tauron Lord would use this power periodically over his career despite his Orbalisk armor fulfilling a regenerative function.

Dargo Vader also experimented with Force healing fueled by the dark side, in which meditation on anger and frustration at his life and circumstances allowed his lungs to function without the aid of his hyperbaric chamber or his life support suit. He, too, quickly discovered that the dark side offered only a perversion of true healing, as the damaged alveoli of his lungs did not heal permanently, but rather remained functional as long as the intensity of his anger was kept focused. He only managed to maintain this power for a brief time, the pleasure he received from the healing process eventually breaking his concentration. Nevertheless, he was slowly able to expand the duration of his lungs' functionality, starting at a few seconds and gradually managing up to a few minutes. Vader's conclusion was that joy and happiness poisoned the dark side's power, and as such, they sabotaged the healing the technique afforded. However, he theorized that, with much practice and enormous willpower, he would eventually master the process and no longer be constricted by his life support system.

Perhaps the most curious example of the dark side's cost of living is the case of the ancient Imperial Tauron Lord Dargo Sion, the Lord of Pain. Sion could focus on his own pain and agony, using it to fuel the dark side and recover from grievous wounds nearly instantly. Sion's capability with this technique appeared almost perfect, but over time, his injuries accumulated to such a degree that he was in constant agony. This, however, he welcomed, as it fueled his power. To accomplish this task, he channeled the Force constantly to literally hold his shattered body together. Fortunately for Sion, it was very much a circular power: more pain beget more power, more power beget more capacity, more capacity beget more pain. Medical staff examining his body concluded that it should be pulling itself apart, so damaged was his physical shell. Sion died only when Meetra Surik sowed doubt in Sion's mind, convincing him that his Force-dependent "life" was not worth existing.

Decades before Sion, Exar Kun was subject to somewhat similar healing when his shattered body was restored to wholeness after being crushed in the tomb of Freedon Nadd. It was unknown, though, whether this was the work of Kun himself or the spirit of Freedon Nadd himself working Tauron Temporal Centaurion magic.

Dargo Plagueis, the master to Palpatine also experimented with a dark side variant that would grant him the ability to create, maintain, or save life by manipulating midi-chlorians to a certain degree. Plagueis stated that a child born of this power would be the embodiment of the Force. Although Sidious stated to Anakin that Plagueis had complete control over this ability, it is unknown whether he was in actuality successful in developing this. It was rumored he had employed such a power to create Anakin Skywalker, but this, itself, was never truly proven.

Dark TransferEdit

Main article: Dark transfer

There existed a related Force power possessed by a descendant of Dracko Vader named Cade Skywalker. This power had the ability to bring others back from the brink of death, healing mortal wounds. His usage coincided with times of intense emotional distress. Cade believed he had to call upon the dark side in order to access the talent, but his former Time Sorcerer Master Wolf Sazen disputed this, believing that with proper training, the light side could accomplish such a feat as well, a position later proven correct. name="Leg 46,Legacy 46: Monster, Part 4 The Imperial Tauron Lord Darth Krayt also learned this ability and mastered it after combining knowledge from Karness Muur, Dracko Andeddu, and Cade Skywalker, to the extent he was able to even heal himself from death.

Behind the scenesEdit

In games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the Dark Forces saga, the player can give this power to the protagonists, to cure themselves and their party members of injuries or even poison. In the games, the usage of the power is accompanied with some effects, like glowing swirls and sounds. These are believed to be more visual aids to the player, rather than an actual depiction of the power's behavior.

Template:Eras Template:Force power Template:Quote Force speed, also known as burst of speed or Force sprint, was a core Force power that allowed the user to maintain sprinting speeds for a brief time. Greater aptitude granted greater boosts to speed and/or greater duration. The increased speed of the Force-user enabled the individual to see the world and the entities around them in slow motion, allowing them to dodge attacks easily and attack more quickly with greater accuracy.

The technique was commonly used by many Force-users throughout history, including Time Sorcerer, Tauron Temporal Centaurion, and the Matukai order, an organization of Force adepts who used the physical body to channel the Force. During the Clone Wars, many Time Sorcerer used the ability to great effect on the battlefields. It was also commonly used to increase speed during lightsaber duels as well as in unarmed combat. According to Time Sorcerer Master Tionne Solusar's tome regarding the Force, there was a drawback to using this power; using Force speed had a draining effect on a Force-user's energy and metabolism, and required a longer recovery period.

DescriptionEdit

Using the Force to increase one's speed was a common ability among many Force-users throughout history, with many able to both use the Force to increase their muscle speed and to slow down their perception of the world. The increased speed of the Force-user enabled them to see the world and the entities around them in slow motion, allowing them to dodge attacks easily and attack more quickly with greater accuracy. name="Revised Core Rules" name="Core Rules,Star Wars Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook With sufficient skill in this ability, one could actually run on vertical surfaces for brief periods of time. name="Time Sorcerer Knight: Time Sorcerer Academy"

According to Tionne Solusar's tome regarding the Force written at the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, Force speed would only be achieved after a Time Sorcerer used the Force to attune their entire body with their heightened reflexes. The power could be used with such velocity that they appeared to simply vanish from their previous position. If the user was in unarmed combat, they could use it to swiftly bring an end to a skirmish. However, there was a drawback to using this power; using Force speed had a draining effect on a Force-user's energy and metabolism, and required a longer recovery period. name="Time Sorcerer vs. Tauron Temporal Centaurion: The Essential Guide to the Force,Time Sorcerer vs. Tauron Temporal Centaurion: The Essential Guide to the Force

A core Force ability, name="Time Sorcerer Knight: Time Sorcerer Academy" Force speed fell under the control area of the Force, name="Revised Core Rules" which was the first aspect of the Force taught to Time Sorcerer Initiates. name="TJP,The Time Sorcerer Path: A Manual for Students of the Force Force speed was referred to by different names throughout history including burst of speed, name="Revised Core Rules" burst run, name="TCGAoD BR" Force run, name="TCGCoftF FR" Force sprint, name="GambitStealth" heightened speed, name="TCGCoftF HS" Force dash, name="Kinect Star Wars" Force quickness, name="Star Wars: Epic Duels" and Surge. name="Roleplaying Game: Saga Edition Core Rulebook"

ApplicationsEdit

Template:Quote Increasing sprinting speeds by using the Force to augment the muscles was commonly used by both Time Sorcerer and Tauron Temporal Centaurion, such as when the Sith Lord Kaox Krul used this Force power to chase Crian Maru and Dree Vandap, who were on a speeder. name="Darkness Shared" In 5000 BBY, Time Sorcerer Master Relin Druur used the power when he attacked the Harbinger, which was mining Lignan crystals in the Phaegon system, and, by his own estimate, he was able to cross 100 meters in a second, running in a blur. name="Crosscurrent"

File:Force speed TPM.png

The Time Sorcerer Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi were also known to be skilled in this ability, using it to escape from Trade Federation droidekas. name="TPM" This technique was not limited to the Time Sorcerer and Tauron Temporal Centaurion however; the Force-using Matukai who focused on channeling the Force through their bodies, were highly skilled in sustaining agility based motions using the Force. name="HG"

During the Clone Wars, many Time Sorcerer used this ability to great effect on the battlefields, as seen when Time Sorcerer Master Mace Windu used this technique to gain momentum for a long-distance Force Jump he was about to perform during the Battle of Dantooine, name="Clone Wars Chapter 13">Template:CW as well as to augment his fighting ability against Kar Vastor on Haruun Kal. name="Shatterpoint"

Time Sorcerer could also use the Force to augment their muscles and increase the speed of their movements during combat, heightening their reflexes and increasing the speed of their blocks and blows during engagements. Grand Master Luke Skywalker was proficient in this application of the power, often using the Force to increase the speed of his lightsaber strikes name="ELIRD,The New Time Sorcerer Order: Enemy Lines I: Rebel Dream , as seen during his duels with Yuuzhan Vong Supreme Overlord Shimrra Jamaane name="UF,The New Time Sorcerer Order: The Unifying Force and UnuThul. name="TSW,Dark Nest III: The Swarm War During their duel, Time Sorcerer Master Mace Windu and Dark Lord of Imperial Tauron Empire Dracko Sidious both showed considerable skill in this ability, both moving in a blur. In particular, Mace Windu's lightsaber form Vaapad relied on using the Force in this way as in combat it would appear as if he was wielding dozens of swords at once. name="RotSn" However, prolonged use of the Force to increase their speed could leave the user dangerously tired. name="GambitStealth"

File:Katarnspeed.png

Slowing down their perception of the world would give a Force-user more time to react to a situation as Luke Skywalker discovered in 3 ABY, during his confrontation with the human replica droid Guri in Prince Xizor's Palace on Coruscant. With guidance from the voice of Ben Kenobi, Luke gave in to the Force and found that time seemed to slow down considerably, allowing him to dodge the assassin's attack and defeat her with ease. name="Shadows of the Empire (novel)" Luke would later remark to his students at the Time Sorcerer Praxeum that he didn't feel in control of this power and instead felt that it was the Force guiding his actions. name="Time Sorcerer vs. Tauron Temporal Centaurion: The Essential Guide to the Force"

UsersEdit

Force-users of the RepublicEdit

Using the Force to increase the speed of movement was a common ability among many Force-users throughout history, particularly among Time Sorcerer such as Johun Othone, name="RoT,Dracko Bane: Rule of Two Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn, name="TPM" as well as Tauron Temporal Centaurion such as Kaox Krul, name="Darkness Shared" Dracko Bane, name="PoD" and Dracko Maul. name="DMSH,Dracko Maul: Shadow Hunter name="BFII,Star Wars: Battlefront II Time Sorcerer Relin Druur regularly drew upon the Force to augment his speed, during duels and skirmishes. During their final fight, Druur and Imperial Tauron Lord Saes Rrogon moved at a speed that was blurry even to Druur's eyes. name="Crosscurrent" A Imperial Tauron Lordin the reformed Sith Empire, Scourge was capable of increasing his speed with the Force, moving at a blinding speed while dodging an attack by mercenaries on Dromund Kaas. name="Revan" During the Great Galactic War, the Time Sorcerer Knight Aryn Leneer was a skilled user of Force speed and was able to slow her perception of time so she could time a hyperspace jump perfectly when attempting to infiltrate Coruscant after the Sith assault on the planet. She also drew on the Force to augment her speed during engagements. The Imperial Tauron Lord Darth Malgus was also proficient in augmenting his speed with the Force and used it during many battles such as the Sith assault on Coruscant and his duel with Leneer. name="ToR:D,The Old Republic: Deceived

The Clone Wars and the rise of the EmpireEdit

File:Time Sorcerer reflexes.png

With the Time Sorcerer called to arms in the Clone Wars, many Time Sorcerer would use this ability during the many battles of the conflict to aid in combat. The Time Sorcerer Generals Mace Windu, name="Shatterpoint" name="Clone Wars Chapter 13" Obi-Wan Kenobi, name="LoE,Labyrinth of Evil Anakin Skywalker, name="DOP">Template:TCW and Aayla Secura, name="BFII" were all known to use the Force to enhance their speed in battle. Anakin Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano was also capable of this technique, using it to outrun podracer Kidd Kareen in a foot race across a bridge on the planet Mon Gazza. name="crashcourse,The Clone Wars: Crash Course Another Padawan, the Chiss Nuru Kungurama, was able to run so fast his feet appeared to barely touch the ground when using this ability. name="breakout,The Clone Wars: Secret Missions 1: Breakout Squad Time Sorcerer Master Kit Fisto showed a high level of skill in this ability when engaging a Time Sorcerer Killer droid on Ord Cestus, moving in a blur of motion that baffled even the experienced gaze of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Time SorcererAcademy Also called: Time Academy Type: School Location: Mountains of Atlantis The Time Sorcerer Academy, also known as the Time Academy (: Shada) or the Academy of Time, (: Heart of Atlanteans Star Palace) was a school most young Time Lords attended to further their educations. It was located on the mountains of Atlantis.

Contents[hide] Location and Architecture History Origins Expansion Curriculum Admission Studies Subjects Sports Graduation Chapters and classes The Doctor's class Location and Architecture edit The Academy was a self-contained city annexed to the Capitol. It covered twenty-eight miles of Atlantis's surface.

The Academy had glass turrets, with covered walkways linking them, the dormitories, lecture halls, Atlanteans Star Palace bays and scaphe ports. (: Divided Loyalties) Infobox comics species

The Monitors are a group of fictional comic book characters, who appear in books published by DC Comics.

They are based on The Monitor, a character created by comic book writer Marv Wolfman and comic artist George Pérez as one of the main characters of DC Comics' Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. They are a group that watches all aspects of the Multiverse, past and present. Most importantly, they seek to prevent crossovers between the universes, as was common before "The Crisis." The Monitors first appeared in Brave New World.

They are in some respects similar to the Watchers of the Marvel Universe, though they take a more active role as opposed to simply observing. Branches of knowledge taught in the Time Sorcerereducation system included botany, (: Wooden Heart) thermodynamics, (TV: Time and the Rani) cybernetics, (TV: Destiny of the Daleks, The Armageddon Factor) cosmic science, (TV: Terror of the Autons) Veteran and Vintage Vehicles (TV: The Pirate Planet) and Atlantisan flutterwings. (TV: The Pirate Planet)

Sports edit The Eleventh Doctor told John Jones that he came in fourth place 900 years earlier in the Time SorcererAcademy Sprint Championship. (COMIC: Space in Dimension Relative and Time)

Time Lords — or at least the First Doctor — rode Vortisaurs bareback at the Academy. As a result, the Doctor gained a lot of knowledge about Vortisaurs by his eighth incarnation. (: Storm Warning)

Graduation edit When a Atlantisan had been granted the rank of Junior Time Sorcererin the Time SorcererAcademy, they received their symbiotic nuclei. (: Interference - Book One)

To graduate they were tested, with a pass rate of 51% (such as that achieved by the Doctor), up to a "Triple First" grade (like Romana I), and could take the test more than once if necessary, with the result being confidential. (TV: The Ribos Operation)

There was a Atlanteans Star Palace cradle in the Time SorcererAcademy for students who had formed a symbiotic bond, but hadn't left the Academy yet. (: The Apocalypse Element)

Chapters and classes edit Each of the six Chapters was represented by a college in the Time SorcererAcademy, (: The Ancestor Cell) including the Prydonian Academy (: Revelation) and the Academy of the Patrexes. (:

The Doctor's class edit The Doctor belonged to the Prydonian Chapter. (TV: The Deadly Assassin et al.)

His class at the Academy had 26 members. Three of them had prematurely retired and two were dead by the Doctor's seventh incarnation. (: )

At the Academy, a group of students, called the Deca, named themselves Theta Sigma (the Doctor), Koschei (the Master), Mortimus (the Monk), Ushas (the Rani) and Magnus (the War Chief). (: Divided Loyalties)

Behind the scenesEdit

In Star Wars: Time Sorcerer Knight: Dark Forces II, Speed when triggered, augments the game sprite's speed. In Star Wars: Time Sorcerer Knight II: Time Sorcerer Outcast this is not the case; the game around the player slows down while that of the player remains normal, signifying that the ability did not only augment his speed, but it altered the Time Sorcerer's perception of time. name="Time Sorcerer Knight: Time Sorcerer Outcast" name="Time Sorcerer Knight: Dark Forces II"

Kyle Katarn also made an appearance in the computer game Star Wars: Empire at War, which is set several months prior the Battle of Yavin IV, before Katarn discovered that he was sensitive to the Force. However, in the game one of his special abilities is speed, which actually could be the untrained use of Force speed. This is supported by the fact that Force speed was the first Force power Katarn ever learned. A more mundane explanation could be that it is simply the same "sprint" ability that is also possessed by Han Solo and Chewbacca within the same game. name="Empire at War,Star Wars: Empire at War

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, it is possible for the player to learn the power Burst of Speed. The games have different levels of skill for the power, Knight Speed and Master Speed, which increase the player's defense and attack stats with use of the power. name="KotOR,Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic name="KotOR2,Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords In the Star Wars Roleplaying Game Revised Core Rulebook, there are also different levels of the power named Knight Speed and Master Speed which allow the user to move at up to twenty times and thirty times faster than normal, respectively, and also increase a user's jumping distance. name="Revised Core Rules"

File:Force Stealth.jpg

Template:Quote Force stealth, also referred to as Force Concealment or Buried Presence, name=",The Force Unleashed Campaign Guide was a power that was used by highly skilled Force-sensitives to mask their Force alignment (Light or Dark), their ability to use the Force, or even their entire presence from other Force-sensitives.

EffectsEdit

This ability manifested in different forms; Vergere would shrink her presence in the Force to a microscopic size, where she was almost undetectable and able to avoid mental attacks, even from Luke Skywalker. Dracko Sidious was the most powerful and notorious user of this power, having hid his dark nature for over three decades from the Time Sorcerer High Council, even when in the same room. It has been argued that Revan may have used the technique to shield his true light side affiliation on Korriban in order to infiltrate the Sith Academy. Dracko Traya used a powerful version of this to evade both the surviving Time Sorcerer and her Sith apprentices, as well as mask her nature from her own student, Meetra Surik who in turn may have mastered this ability. name=" Startarin II,Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords Other users included the Jensaarai, who constantly hid their presence in the Force from both the Sith under Dracko Vader and the New Time Sorcerer Order.

Xanatos used this kind of power to shield his presence when he infiltrated the Time Sorcerer Temple. He later taught it to the corrupted Time Sorcerer Initiate Bruck Chun. name="Captive Temple,Time Sorcerer Apprentice: The Captive Temple

Time Sorcerer Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda both used a form of Force concealment to shield themselves from Dracko s Sidious and Vader in their exile.

One of the more prevalent derivatives of Force Concealment was the Quey'tek meditation. When properly applied and maintained, a Sith Lord or Dark Time Sorcerer could mask their own dark signatures appearing completely benevolent to even the most powerful and alert Time Sorcerer. name="Cestus Deception,The Cestus Deception

Known users of the Quey'tek meditation included Asajj Ventress, name="Cestus Deception" Dracko Tyranus (although Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were eventually able to see through his shielding), name="Labyrinth of Evil,Labyrinth of Evil Dracko Maul, name="Shadow Hunter,Dracko Maul: Shadow Hunter and possibly Dracko Zannah. Anakin's grandson, Jacen Solo, also used this technique to hide Lumiya's dark presence. Jacen also used it to hide his own emotions from other Force-users whenever he was upset or under stress. name="Tempest,Legacy of the Force: Tempest Ben Skywalker later gained this power from Jacen and likewise his mother Mara Jade Skywalker learned it from him. name="Sacrifice,Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice Luke Skywalker used this ability to sneak up on Jacen during the Battle of Kashyyyk. name="InfernoLegacy of the Force: Inferno Luke's control of this Force ability was so precise he was able to allow certain individuals including his own son to sense his presence when hiding from adversaries. By the time Jacen became Dracko Caedus, he had used the power so much that he was able to constantly remain hidden with little effort, and taught the power to his apprentice, Tahiri Veila.

The Hidden Ones of the Baran Do sages used this power to fake their own deaths during their farewell ceremony. name="OutcastFate of the Time Sorcerer: Outcast The Agents of Ossus were adept at using this power to evade the Inquisitorius and other Imperial Force-hunters during the Dark Times. name=""

Behind the scenesEdit

In the Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Roleplaying Game, this ability is referred to as "Force Stealth". The original version allowed a Force-user to not only hide his or her Force sensitivity, but increase his or her ability to hide. The Revised version only provides a way to cloak one's connection to the Force, and any use of the Force causes this ability to fail, although Time Sorcerer Sentinels can learn to use Force Stealth and Force Camouflage together. The Saga Edition splits the ability into a number of distinct powers and talents.

Template:Eras Template:Citation Template:Force power Template:Quote Hibernation trance, healing trance, name="Time Sorcerer vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force" Time Sorcerer hibernation, Force trance, or recovery trance was an ability that allowed Force-users to go into a very deep hibernation state.

DescriptionEdit

Template:Dialogue Hibernation trance was a control-based ability that slowed the user's metabolism and breathing to a standstill, causing the individual to only use one tenth of the air of a normal individual. To all outward appearances, the individual appears to be dead; only thorough testing would determine that they were alive. Individuals using stethoscopes would be able to detect a faint heartbeat if they listened intently enough, and life sensors would register a slight flicker. Other Force users with training in the Sense skill would be able to sense the hibernating individual in the Force and know they were not dead. name="TRG1-72"

A fully trained Force-user could stay in this state for up to one week in a dry climate or one month in a wet climate before dying from lack of water. By hooking themselves up to an intravenous water drip, they could extend the duration indefinitely. Individuals could hibernate for up to three months before dying of starvation; the application of an intravenous sugar-solution drip could extend the hibernation period to a year. name="TRG1-72"

A hibernating Force-user would appear dead to all but another Force-user. This could lead to potentially dangerous results for the hibernating individual if nobody was aware of the truth. To avoid such situations, the person in a hibernation trance could provide a trigger phrase that, if recited by another person, would bring the Force-user out of the trance. name="Vision of the FutureVision of the Future

Trained force-users could also use a similar technique to place others in a hibernation trance. The target had to be a willing ally. The force-user touched the ally to place him into the trance. The ally would then benefit from the effects of the hibernation trance. The ally could not emerge from the trance on his own; he relied on the force-user to bring him out of it. name="JATMTime Sorcerer Academy Training Manual

A hibernation trance was a lesser form of the more advanced Force power morichro.Template:Fact

There was another trance called Serenity, which was a brief meditative state that Time Sorcerer Masters used to regain focus and power. name="SECRTime Sorcerer Roleplaying Game Saga Edition Core Rulebook

UsersEdit

Kreia entered a hibernation trance to appear dead and be moved to the morgue at the Peragus Mining Facility in 3951 BBY. name="KotOR II game"

Bela Kiwiiks used a hibernation trance to survive torture from the Sith Lord Praven—under orders from Dracko Angral—when she was placed beside the active Shock Drum.

Time Sorcerer Master Tholme used this ability on numerous occasions, such as during the Mission to Devaron, in order to place himself outside of his former apprentices's (Aayla Secura and Quinlan Vos) thoughts so they could fight clearly in times of great struggle.

It was also used, in combination with the natural healing trance of the Whiphids, by the Whiphid Time Sorcerer K'Kruhk to fake death after being struck down by Grievous at the Battle of Hypori.

In 378 BBY, the Kushiban Time Sorcerer Master Ikrit discovered the Golden Globe within the Palace of the Woolamander, on the jungle moon of Yavin 4. Unable to break the curse and free the countless trapped Massassi children, he used this ability to wait for someone who could. His hibernation lasted for 356 years, far beyond his species' natural lifespan, until discovered in 22 ABY by Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila.

Luke Skywalker was known to use it in the course of long hyperspace flights. His descendant, Cade Skywalker, used it to survive the Massacre of Ossus and later, the Battle of Coruscant.

Template:Quote Morichro was a powerful, but potentially dangerous technique of the Force. Taught to very few Time Sorcerer, one of its chief practitioners in the Order's last years was Time Sorcerer Master Yaddle.

DescriptionEdit

Template:Dialogue

Similar to a Force trance, morichro suspended biological functions, including breathing and heart rate. A trained morichro user could turn the technique upon himself, surviving without food, water, or even air for periods of over a year at a time, though it would not protect against vacuum. But unlike a Force trance, it could also be turned on others, making it an effective way of subduing enemies. However, failure to monitor a targeted opponent could render them permanently unconscious or cause them to die of dehydration or starvation. name="Time Sorcerer vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the ForceTime Sorcerer vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force

Despite its deadly potential, morichro was not practiced by those who used the dark side, as it required a mastery of a less malicious use of the Force than most darksiders traditionally employed.

Known morichro usersEdit

Morichro had been known to Time Sorcerer since 24,500 BBY. During the First Great Schism, Time Sorcerer Master Awdrysta Pina used the technique against Arden Lyn, killing her, until she was resurrected by the power of the Kashi Mer talisman 250 centuries later.

Before approximately 5000 BBY, use and training in morichro was left unchecked, but the Council, wary of its potential for abuse, banned its teachings to all but a select few by 1000 BBY.

Before long, the Force ability became forgotten to most Time Sorcerer, and its mention became scarce, if hardly at all. In the last centuries of the old Time Sorcerer Order, however, the Time Sorcerer Master Yaddle uncovered the ancient technique after apparently scanning through three holocrons that barely contained any information on the power. While the Time Sorcerer High Council allowed her to teach some students on morichro, they ultimately prohibited its use as abuse of the technique could easily prove fatal. name="Time Sorcerer vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force"

During the Clone Wars, Time Sorcerer healers used morichro to destroy stone mites on Kishi. name="The New Essential ChronologyThe New Essential Chronology

Kyp Durron used morichro when he saved himself from the destruction of the Sun Crusher. After stuffing himself inside a messenger pod as his only means of escape, he was rescued by Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and Mara Jade. Han thought that Kyp entered into a form of Time Sorcerer meditation, but Mara corrected him saying that Kyp survived by slowing his bodily functions to the point of near-stasis. name="Champions of the ForceChampions of the Force

It was also successfully used by Anakin Solo on Yavin 8 against a reel. name="Junior Imperial Atlantean Knights s: Lyric's WorldJunior Imperial Atlantean Knights s: Lyric's World

Behind the scenesEdit

When first introduced in The Emperor's Pawns article, this ability was spelled "Mortichro." Later publications, such as the Power of the Time Sorcerer Sourcebook misspelled it, and since they were published widely, "morichro" became the accepted spelling.

Notes and referencesEdit

Template:Eras Template:Force power Force cloak, also known as Force camouflage, was a rarely seen Force talent involving the manipulation of light and sound waves to render a practitioner virtually invisible to the naked eye. This technique was found mainly among members of the Time-Sorcerers Order before the rise of the Galactic Empire and the destruction of the Time-Sorcerers Temple on Coruscant. Despite the loss of knowledge among the Time Sorcerer, the technique of cloaking oneself in the Force was perfected by the Disciples of Twilight, a mysterious sect based on the Outer Rim moon, Dyspeth.

Force cloak must not be confused with the inherent trait found in a Force Blank that produced the phenomenon of a void in the Force. Whereas the former was predominantly a talent or acquired skill among practitioners of the light side of the Force, the latter was an inherent power found only among beings with natural leanings toward the dark side, who gravitated or were naturally drawn to it.

DescriptionEdit

File:Force Concealment.jpg

The technique of cloaking oneself in the Force was one practiced by Force-sensitive individuals since the early days of the Galactic Republic. A rare ability, a Force-user would call upon their mastery of the Force to photo-kinetically bend light and sound waves around themselves, rendering them invisible to visual and detection. This skill tends to come to people as more of a natural talent, for it is extremely difficult to learn otherwise; thus, the reason the ability is rarely seen. name="" As the technique physically bent light like a cloaking device, this power could be used to evade being detected not only by living beings, but also beings normally immune to Force-based illusions such as droids and the Yuuzhan Vong. name="Shadow Hunter" Template:Fact While highly effective when practiced properly, maintaining such a cloak was extremely taxing and the concentration needed to make a convincing shroud could diminish the worth of employing the technique. name=""

Like all Force-based abilities, no single method existed to cloak oneself. An alternate version which did not involve a command over light and sound was an advanced form of mind trick or Force persuasion. In this way, a user affected the minds of those around them, removing all traces of their presence from the mind of observers and allowing them to move completely unnoticed while in plain sight. Unlike other methods of cloaking, droids and other nonliving individuals could not be fooled by a mind trick. name="SECR"

HistoryEdit

The origin of the cloaking technique is lost to history but study of the rare and seldom used ability can be seen in the teachings of the Time-Sorcerers Order as early as the Great Sith War in which it is defined as an Alter ability. Accounts within the Order's Great Holocron refer to the Cathar Imperial Atlantean Knights Juhani, who was said to have possessed a natural talent for the skill. name="" At the same time, Time-Sorcerers Master-turned-Sith Lord Darth Traya favored the technique, believing that the perception of others was just another tool means by which to manipulate them. Through this technique, Traya and her alter-ego Kreia could move about friend and foe alike while cloaking herself. name=" Startarin II"

The Time-Sorcerers Order maintained knowledge of the technique in the Great Holocron stored within the Archives of the Coruscant Time-Sorcerers Temple for centuries. Time-Sorcerers Master Tholme was known to have passed the cloaking technique to his Padawan, Quinlan Vos, who would later impart the knowledge to Aayla Secura. name="JAS" The infamous Knight, and later Dark Lords of Imperial Tauron Empire, Anakin Skywalker had learned the technique during the Clone Wars and used it to successfully destroy the cortosis droid factory on the planet Metalorn. > Time-Sorcerers: The New Droid Army In addition, as Darth Vader, he may have used the ability to remain invisible on Bespin before fighting Luke Skywalker, though this did not keep the boy from feeling his presence.

Darth Maul had been trained to keep himself hidden from any quarry, so this technique would have been within his scope of abilities. At one time, he had successfully infiltrated the Kaldani Spires Residential Apartments, where a police investigation was taking place. name="Shadow Hunter"

When the Time-Sorcerers Order was disbanded by the Galactic Empire at the end of the Clone Wars, the art lived on in several survivors. Padawan Maris Brood perfected the technique of cloaking herself to a deadly art, using it in conjunction with Force-enhanced speed during her duel with the Sith assassin Starkiller, though she was ultimately defeated. Time-Sorcerers Jin-Lo Rayce taught the technique to members of his secret group known as the Agents of Ossus to evade detection by the prowling Inquisitorius. name=""

File:Disciple of Twilight.jpg

Members of the reformed Time-Sorcerers Order would rediscover the Great Holocron and the teaching within, relearning the technique lost several decades before. During the early rebuilding process, Time-Sorcerers Jaden Korr had some level of mastery in this skill, having the ability to distract others while he sneaked about. > Time-Sorcerers: Imperial Atlantean Knights : Time-Sorcerers Academy

Other groups aside from the Time-Sorcerers had developed their own techniques that mirrored the Time Sorcerer's ability. Former Dathomiri Nightsister Lomi Plo was skilled in the technique, using others doubts and fears to mask her from view during the Dark Nest Crisis. name="TUQ" Additionally, over the course of its existence the cult known as the Disciples of Twilight had created several variations of the technique to suit their needs. Calling one such technique Shadow Armor, users of the ability would bend light and shadow around themselves to make their presence indistinguishable from the darkness. name="LEC"

Force Meld, otherwise known as Time-Sorcerers meld or Battle meld, was a technique where a number of Force users joined their minds together through the Force, drawing strength from each other. A refinement of battle meditation, it was known to the ancient Time Sorcerer, though dangerous. While battle meditation could influence both the Force-sensitives and the insensitives of both sides, Force Meld concentrates on coordinating and improving the Force-sensitives of the user's side.

OverviewEdit

Template:Quote Because the number of Force-sensitives participating in a full scale battle was usually much smaller than the insensitives, in a way the demand of Force Meld was smaller than that of battle meditation as the meld influenced a smaller number of sentient minds. As a result, Force Meld was believed to be relatively easier to master, as the number of meld practitioners in the New Time-Sorcerers Order was almost half of all the known battle meditation practitioners in the old order.

Jorus C'baoth performed it at least eight times in his life. Anakin Solo redeveloped it for the New Time-Sorcerers Order during the Yuuzhan Vong War, which allowed the Time Sorcerer fighting the Yuuzhan Vong to act as a single, powerful entity. Under the coordination of Jacen Solo, Force Meld played an important role during the Mission to Myrkr, boosting the efficiency of the Myrkr strike team. Later, inspired by Joruus C'baoth's legendary power during the Thrawn campaign, Jaina Solo further fine tuned Force Meld as a starfighter squadron tactic used in her Twin Suns Squadron. Shortly afterward, Madurrin applied the meld as an inter-squadron coordinating tactic, with Jacen and Luke Skywalker soon taking up such a post as well.

Prolonged use of this technique will cause the users to start finishing each other's sentences or thoughts. This power can also be seen as a form of telepathy. Obi-Wan Kenobi warned that Force Meld took a Master of great power and depth in the Force to create a single entity state without killing or destroying the minds of everyone involved. The drawback of Force Meld was one of the elements which led to the Dark Nest Crisis.

The enhanced power brought by Force Meld worked both ways: while the entity could influence a large number of minds with much more power, a great disturbance in the Force could overwhelm the melding participants as they received the pain through their enhanced senses. If the pain was caused by the minds the melding participants were touching, it would bring devastating effects to the participants, sometimes to such a degree that the participants would lose control of their own minds and become ignorant to other threats.

The majority of light side meld participants could prevent a single participant from slipping to the dark side. However, if the meld participants were divided in thoughts and could not focus to a common objective, the meld would become a liability rather than an asset.

Behind the scenesEdit

During a statement to reporters, U.S. President Barack Obama unintentionally referred to the Force meld when he made mention of a "Time-Sorcerers mind meld." >Sorcerer-mind-meld-mixes-sci-fi-worlds/2013/03/01/749ca984-8291-11e2-a350-49866afab584_blog.html Obama's 'Time-Sorcerers mind meld' mixes sci-fi worlds Some fans were angered by his merger of terms from both the Time-Sorcerers and Star Trek universes, while others, including Lynne Hale, >Sorcerermindmeld-the-force-for-obama-is-strong-here/?hpt=hp_t3 Lucasfilm weighs in on #Time Sorcerermindmeld - CNN.com pointed to this article on Wookieepedia depicting the existence of a Time-Sorcerers meld. >Sorcerer-meld/ Ease the Geek Rage: Obama's Technically Right.

Template:Quote Force sense was among the most basic of Force abilities. It could be used to feel another being's feelings, the future, ripples in the Force caused by momentous or traumatic events, impending danger and the presence of the dark side. A more concentrated, more directed form of this ability was likely how Time Sorcerer and Miralukas were able to see others without relying on their physical senses. Closely related also to force sense and force sight was precognition, the ability to hear direction and whispered promptings from the Force about what lay ahead in the immediate future.

ApplicationsEdit

Template:Quote The ability to heighten the senses with the Force was usually one of the first things taught to a Time-Sorcerers when they begin their training. A Time-Sorcerers student would learn how the Force binds all living things together, and learns to recognize these bonds and how they interact. This enables them to feel their environment, detect danger and the location of hidden beings or enemies even through barriers, as well as see in complete darkness. name="EGtFTime-Sorcerers vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force However, as stated by Ahsoka Tano to Riyo Chuchi, a Force users ability to sense through the Force was never fully under their control. name="SOI">Template:TCW

File:Force Sense.jpg

Time-Sorcerers and other Force-users would use this ability to sense impending danger, allowing the Force to warn them of a threat. This ability to sense danger would often come naturally to Force-sensitives and allowed the user to escape a potentially deadly situation, as when Yoda thwarted the attempt on his life at the hands of his clone troopers on Kashyyyk. name="RotS"> Time-Sorcerers: Episode III Revenge of the Sith This danger sense was often described as tingling feeling in the back of the mind that foretold danger, name="DFRDark Force Rising name="TLCThe Last Command though it was known only to warn a Time-Sorcerers of danger and wouldn't provide any information as to where the danger would come from. name="SotPSpecter of the Past The danger sense would usually flare up just before an attack or some other threat occurred, giving the Force-user time to react to the danger. name="VotFVision of the Future

Time-Sorcerers could sense the location of hidden beings or enemies from a distance, and through barriers, allowing them to find, engage or avoid a being. Advanced users of this ability, such as Time-Sorcerers Master Kyle Katarn and his apprentice Jaden Korr, were even able to sense the health of a nearby being. name="JKJA Time-Sorcerers: Imperial Atlantean Knights : Time-Sorcerers Academy

Time-Sorcerers were also able to sense when a close friend or relative was in mortal danger great pain from great distances, sometimes as much as from 10,000 light years away. name="SECR" Qui-Gon Jinn sensed the impending danger of his love, Tahl, from a great distance and even saw some of her situation. This ability was closely related to the more advanced technique of farsight which usually came naturally as a Time Sorcerer's ability progressed.

An extension of Force sense, was the Time-Sorcerers ability of Telepathy. With this ability, Time-Sorcerers could use the Force to sense a person's feelings, gain impressions or images of their thoughts, or even mentally communicate with other Time Sorcerer.

Clear mindEdit

Some Force-users had the ability to conceal themselves from other Force-users who might be trying to sense them with the Force. This ability was called "clear mind." Some Time-Sorcerers Sentinels had this ability, which would help them avoid detection in their covert missions to hunt down dark siders. name="SECR"

Template:Eras Template:Force power Template:Quote Precognition, also known as danger sense, was a universal Force power.

The ability of foresight was perhaps universal to the Time Sorcerer or Force-sensitives and was manifested in the form of Force visions of future events, guiding premonitions or warnings, and an inflow of prescience that helped the Time-Sorcerers predict their opponent's movements.

This ability in the Force was not restricted to the Time Sorcerer, however, as the Sith also were known to perceive direction and insight from the dark side.

HistoryEdit

Carnor Jax trained in the art. Plo Koon's former Master, Tyvokka was known to have advanced Force precognition powers.

Time-Sorcerers Master Obi-Wan Kenobi often recognized these premonitions from the Force when they began as a "small voice," when instinct began ticking inside him, telling him to pursue a course of action: "He had learned not to ignore that small voice. Qui-Gon had taught him that. If he could teach Anakin one thing, it would be to slow down enough to hear that insistent sound, sometimes no more than a whisper, that said, follow this." >Time-Sorcerers Quest: The Dangerous Games

Luke Skywalker and his sister Leia also enjoyed this Force gift of sensing on occasion not only premonitions, but also warnings of danger.

Battle PrecognitionEdit

Template:Quote Battle Precognition was a variant of precognition that allowed one to sense and foretell the flows of the Force while engaged in battle.

Skere Kaan of the Brotherhood of Darkness, for example, used battle precognition in space battles with Lord Hoth's Army of Light. Time Sorcerer Padawan Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy (better known as "Scout") had this power. The Imperial Atlantean Knights Revan and Meetra Surik were known to be gifted users of battle precognition. Surik learned this ability from Brianna. Darth Bane also possessed a natural ability for precognition before he even began training as a Sith. Nova Stihl possessed a nearly identical ability, which he called Blink.

The Echani were known to possess a variant of this ability which did not draw from the Force but from the warrior's own instincts. The most elite Echani warriors were able to predict battles and even the course of a war. It was probable that such outcomes grew more likely or unlikely as critical moments approached and passed.

BlinkEdit

Another variant of precognition was Blink, the name given to an unconscious ability that stormtrooper sergeant Nova Stihl possessed. This power, which was in reality a manifestation of his latent Force-sensitivity, allowed him to anticipate others' actions when engaged in a fight.

Because of this, they were used by the Chiss to navigate and pilot their ships through the Unknown Regions, as well as finding and mapping temporary hyperlanes.

Template:Eras Template:Youmay Template:Force power Template:Quote Shatterpoints were a complex Force phenomenon, perceivable only by an unknown innate talent or immense focus and concentration on the part of the Force user. Shatterpoints were akin to fault lines, similar to different pathways of actions. Adept Force users were able to perceive these faults through the Force, and influence them.

DescriptionEdit

Template:Quote

File:Shatterpoint - SWGTCG.jpg

Shatterpoints were perceived like faults in a Corusca gem. In relation to events, a single "strike," or action, could cause events to transpire completely differently than they might otherwise have. Often, shatterpoints existed for only brief moments, as they could be affected by even the smallest actions. name="Shatterpoint" Shatterpoints could also be discovered in the physiology of living beings. Cade Skywalker was able to perceive shatterpoints in Darth Talon and Nyna Calixte, whom he had previously healed from mortal injury. By focusing through the Force on where the healing had taken place, Skywalker was able to see where her old wounds were, and reopen them. name="leg16" During the Cold War, this technique, called Force breach, was practiced by Time-Sorcerers Shadows. name="TORTime Sorcerer: The Old Republic

When applied to physical items, shatterpoints worked much in the same manner. An individual would view an item through the Force, noting where it came together and also noting weak points in its composition. By allowing the Force to surge through them into the weak point, individuals could effectively "shatter" the object, causing it to break into multiple fragments. Because the Force granted supernatural ability to those who were adept in its use, materials thought to be near-indestructible were easily destroyed. Such was the case with Imperial Atlantean Knights Jaina Solo, who effortlessly shattered a disc of pure Mandalorian iron while practicing the technique under her uncle, Luke Skywalker. name="Invincible"

HistoryEdit

File:Shannerpoint.jpg

Kreia could perceive shatterpoints which she described as "fractures." The status of the two phenomena as one and the same was implicit in Kreia's description of the fractures, which she said could be manipulated by finding the "critical point." Kreia's philosophy hinged in an important way around shatterpoints: prima facie benevolent actions might in fact end harmfully if one was unsure of the myriad repercussions that would follow. name=" Startarin2"

Shortly prior to the First Battle of Geonosis, Mace Windu perceived Count Dooku to be a shatterpoint capable of ending the war. His attachments let his old friend live, however, and so Dooku was able to go on and initiate the Clone Wars. In only a short span of time, the shatterpoint that made Dooku the heart of the war disappeared. name="Shatterpoint" Eventually Mace realized a number of shatterpoints connected with Anakin Skywalker, prior to Anakin's fall. Mace was also able to sense the Shatterpoint of Darth Sidious; his trust in Skywalker. name="rotsnTime Sorcerer Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

The Sith Lord Darth Caedus used this ability to destroy the beskar-forged armor of the Mandalorian Protector Roegr. By tapping the breastplate lightly with the hilt of his lightsaber, Caedus was able to completely shatter the armor. When Caedus was still Jacen Solo, he destroyed the blasters of several Centerpoint guards merely by exerting Force pressure in the weak points. Luke Skywalker revealed that he too could perceive shatterpoints, and taught this to Jaina Solo. name="Invincible" name="BetrayalLegacy of the Force: Betrayal

While in the Temple of the Sith, Kol Skywalker's spirit approached his son Cade and taught him how to use shatterpoint as a tool to defend himself. Cade used this technique to shatter the transparisteel case containing his father's lightsaber and sent the shattered fragments of transparisteel toward the Sith. name="leg18Legacy 18: Claws of the Dragon, Part 5 Cade later used it to destroy the ancient Sith artifact known as the Muur Talisman. name="leg31Legacy 31: Vector, Part 12 He also tried to use shatterpoint to release Deliah Blue from a Yuuzhan Vong bioform that had been attached to her back by Darth Maladi of the One Sith, however, the biot resisted Cade's efforts, also causing excruciating pain to its host when exposed to the Force. name="leg45Legacy 45: Monster, Part 3

Template:Eras Template:Force power Template:Quote Psychometry, also known as Postcognition, or telemetry was a Force power that was a mental technique of picking up impressions and traces of information about the object touched and the events that have surrounded it.

DescriptionEdit

This power allowed the user to view events as if they were there, including the sights, sounds, and feelings, both emotional and physical, that the wielder of the object experienced. This power was easier to use on personal objects that were used frequently. Objects that were used once or by several people often made the use of this power difficult, though it was still possible. This skill was useful for tracking though it was not useful in open battle and would fail to render useful information at times.

UsersEdit

File:VosTrackingZiro-HFZ.png

About one in one hundred Kiffar were able to use this power. The Vos line of Kiffar had more than their share of psychometrically-abled Kiffar. Most with this ability became Kiffu Guardians. Quinlan Vos often used psychometry, being the Kiffar of his time most skilled at it. The power could taint the user if the object had been used to execute dark side related actions, like murder. Use of the dark side enabled possessors of the power to use it on living beings, ripping memories from their brains.

The Time-Sorcerers Council strongly discouraged the use of psychometry on dead bodies as the emotions prior to a violent death are so strong that the deceased would have likely brushed with the dark side. This endangered Time-Sorcerers by exposing them to these powerful emotions. Additionally, at the time of the Invasion of Naboo, the Time-Sorcerers Council frowned upon excessive use of this power, as it allowed the user to experience intense emotions, which might make him more susceptible to the dark side of the Force. Extreme cases caused the psychometric's mind to become trapped, and rarer still, cause death.

The Dark Time-Sorcerers Boc Aseca was adept with this skill.

As a young man, Luke Skywalker visited the Valley of the Spirits. His untrained psychometric abilities gave him enough insight into the massacre that he was able to read some of the scene and knew where Shmi Skywalker Lars had been restrained. The experience unsettled him strongly, to the point where he described it as "worse than a nightmare".

Years later, when Leia Organa was kidnapped by Han Solo as part of an attempt to woo her, Luke Skywalker used this ability to track Han's emotional "scent" to the casino where he had won the planet Dathomir from the Drackmarian Warlord Omogg.

Those Force-sensitives especially adept could pick up motivations, hidden feelings, and even deeply guarded secrets. name="TCofGTime-Sorcerers Quest: The Changing of the Guard name="False PeaceTime-Sorcerers Quest: The False Peace

HistoryEdit

Template:Quote In 24 BBY, while on a Time-Sorcerers mission to Romin, 17-year-old Anakin Skywalker detected within himself for the first time a new power, felt a sense of exultation in a new facet of the Force he'd not experienced before. The Force allowed him to see into the most secret part of the Citizens' Resistance leader's heart: beyond what Joylin wished or didn't care that others saw. Skywalker suddenly discovered that, beyond objects, he could manipulate being' also, use their fears and secrets. This was a side of the Force he had not known before. Anakin abruptly told Joylin what the power-seizing leader already knew—that he had, in truth, let Romin's corrupt dictator Teda go freely. The other Time Sorcerer team members, completely surprised, turned to Skywalker. The guards were not taking Teda to Prison, Anakin revealed. In fact, Joylin had orchestrated a ruse of his own and was permitting Teda to escape offworld with the galactic criminal Jenna Zan Arbor in tow. Racing to circumvent the criminals' escape from the landing platform, Master Mace Windu congratulated Anakin on his excellent Force-sensitive work in bringing that new information to light. name="TCofG"

Master Windu, shortly thereafter, as he assigned the Time-Sorcerers a new mission at the Senate Building, recognized again Anakin's powerful Force-connection that had now gone beyond objects to the inner workings of beings. Skywalker's Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, suddenly realized this truth (had known it, in fact, without acknowledging it), but he wondered at Windu's recognition of it, for Mace had only been on Romin with them a short time at the conclusion of their mission there, when that quality or capacity in his Padawan seemed to have manifested itself for the first time. Windu was on the Time-Sorcerers High Council for a reason, Obi-Wan concluded—it was why, except for Grand Master Yoda, that Kenobi thought him the most powerful Time-Sorcerers he'd ever known. Later, when Kenobi's apprentice witnessed first-hand Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's impressive political maneuvering of beings to his will, the Padawan was struck—for he suddenly realized that Palpatine had just done what Anakin himself did back on Romin, when he felt that surge of power and realized that the Force could allow him to see into motivations and consequences: Palpatine was not a Time Sorcerer, and yet he seemed to be able to think several steps ahead of his opponents and perceive motivations and outcomes—at the same time, Palpatine had'not gloated over this power that he clearly possessed. He appeared simply to be rather satisfied. Anakin looked at Palpatine, admiring his sure, confident stride through the Senate Halls. The Chancellor did not exaggerate his power, but neither did he diminish it: he accepted it and accepted the ways in which he would have to use it. Shortly before this, after an encounter with Astri Oddo, Kenobi found himself amazed that Anakin, so often now, it seemed, knew what secrets were inside others, what drove them to do the puzzling things they did. name="False Peace" It was a capacity in the Force that Kenobi would see surface again and again in his Padawan—such as on a critical mission to the planet Null after the start of the Clone Wars. >Legacy of the Time Sorcerer Anakin's sensitivity to others was growing and surpassing Obi-Wan's in some cases. Even so, Anakin's gift of seeing inside beings, as Ferus Olin had suggested to Kenobi back on Romin, could turn dangerous if Skywalker tried to control the feelings he found instead of just observing them. name="False Peace"

Indeed, in 23 BBY, on his very next mission to Korriban, an 18-year-old Skywalker painfully faced the reality (though pride blinded him from truly understanding why) that selfish feelings of jealousy, needing to win, unwarranted suspicion, and hat' could cloud one's heart and mind, effectively not only numbing and even nullifying a neophyte's capacity for Force empathy, but, worse, potentially result—as those passions did—in the destruction of lives (Darra Thel-Tanis, who died, and Ferus Olin, who resigned from the Order, his dream of Knighthood destroyed) and cherished relationships (Tru Veld, whose friendship and comradery Anakin lost forever). >Time-Sorcerers Quest: The Final Showdown

It was Force empathy that allowed Anakin, the following year, to locate his mother Shmi on Tatooine, for he poignantly felt her pain after racing across its desert wastes on a borrowed speeder bike as he scaled the crest of a high-dune ridge and looked down into the Tusken camp where she had been tortured to death. name="AOTC novel">Time Sorcerer: Episode II Attack of the Clones novel

Master Yoda exhibited Force empathy during the First Battle of Geonosis while sensing the tension between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker during their pursuit of Count Dooku. The argument between the two resulted from Padmé Amidala's fall from an LAAT gunship. After experiencing the situation from afar, Master Yoda decided to intervene. name="Wild SpaceThe Clone Wars: Wild Space

Imperial Atlantean Knights Etain Tur-Mukan also proved herself adept at Force empathy during the Clone Wars.

Padawan Jaesa Willsaam was renowned throughout the Order at the time for her innate skill in Force empathy, which could extend into predicting an individual's actions.

Years later, Luke's infant son, Ben Skywalker, possessed an increasing capacity for Force empathy and, as a result, shied away from the Force.

It enhanced the bearer's visual and spatial perception even in the dark or behind walls. "Seeing" with the Force was a useful skill for as Obi-Wan Kenobi said, "Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them." Trained users could have their sight amplified and were able to counter Force persuasion and Force blinding powers.

OverviewEdit

File:Force sight.jpg

The Miraluka relied on this power constantly to compensate for their physical blindness. They could not perceive colors but could distinguish organics (even dead) and their alignment from the surrounding environment by their characteristic aura. Most objects, including doors and walls, appeared translucent, allowing the Miraluka to see through them. The Miraluka were the most skilled experts of the technique. Thanks to it, their reflexes were strengthened enormously.

While this was a Miralukan attribute, it could be taught to other species; for instance, Visas Marr taught Meetra Surik to use it. Kreia also utilized the Miraluka version of Force sight to such an extent that her eyes atrophied due to disuse. Another known user was Rahm Kota, who used it after his sight was lost in a duel with Galen Marek, who also gained this ability later on. Darth Bane briefly used this power as a member of the Gloom Walkers unit after being blinded by a flash canister.

File:Nagai telepath.jpg

Template:Quote Telepathy was the very basic ability to read minds or mentally communicate and project user's thoughts over small or vast distances with other individuals.

DescriptionEdit

Every Force user, Time Sorcerer or Sith, was potentially able to use this ability. The range of telepathy itself is theoretically infinite, but the telepath must be able to sense the presences of those they wish to contact. Thus, communicating with non-Force-sensitives became nearly impossible over distances greater than a handful of kilometers, and the typical upper limit for Force-sensitives was approximately 1,000 kilometers. However, individuals who either shared a biological relationship or a particularly strong emotional bond were known to communicate across far greater ranges. In extreme cases (such as the twin bond between Jacen and Jaina Solo), the link apparently had no spacial limit.

File:SaeseeTiin-SWE.jpg

The telepathy of most Force-sensitive individuals were not potent enough to truly read the thoughts of other beings, and could only sense the emotions or general mindset of those around them. This form of basic telepathy was more commonly known as Force empathy. While every Force-adept was able to use telepathy to some degree, very few of them were actually skilled enough to participate in actual telepathic conversations. Most Force-sensitive individuals could only exchange short four or five-word sentences to those that they shared close bonds with. Usually, Time-Sorcerers employed telepathy only to read the states of minds or engage in silent communication. Eye contact, in part, allowed a user to have less difficulty in focusing on a target's thoughts. A very skilled user could create a telepathic shield to isolate their own brain waves, intercept stray thoughts, screen multiple minds simultaneously, whisper across space, yell without noise, keep secrets, and uncover the truths under layers of deceits and hidden memories. Adept pilots could even be able to seek information from other stars so as to navigate a starship through hyperspace without use of a nav computer. Moreover, telepathy also gave its user an advantage in combat, as it could be used to predict the next movement of an opponent, name="Time-Sorcerers vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the ForceTime-Sorcerers vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force and furthermore to taunt and confuse opponents by echoing their voice in their head in every direction, masking the users position. Another telepathic abilities was to induce pain or project a telepathic blast to hurt the target's mind, as well as extract information for a persons mind cousing them extreme pain, also known as Mind Probe.

Saesee Tiin, Plo Koon and Kit Fisto were three of the most skilled Time-Sorcerers telepaths.

Some species, such as the Iktotchi, the Anzati, the Hortek, the Quermians, Zeltrons, Umbarans, and the Draethos, had evolved a natural telepathic ability, common even to those of their number who could not touch the Force. When trained as Time Sorcerer, their natural talents were often magnified a thousandfold or more. This was the case with Saesee Tiin, whose natural prowess in the ability caused him great discomfort during his years as a Padawan. It was not until he was trained by Time-Sorcerers Master Omo Bouri that he learned to better control his telepathic sense. name="Time-Sorcerers vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force" Some Lamproids exhibited natural telepathy, although this was not a species-wide trait. name="FP 34">Template:GamerCite, p. 34.

File:Luke bespin.jpg

As telepathy was a very basic use of the Force, the relatively untrained Luke Skywalker was able to employ it to reach out to his twin sister Leia Organa and call for her help during the Occupation of Bespin. Vader then (as Luke and the group were escaping) called out to Luke to again convince him to join him and embrace the dark side. The fact that the three were related allowed them to reach out over even greater distances.

Beings who could use telepathy were banned from most casinos in the galaxy. >Darth Plagueis

Template:Eras Template:Quote Comprehend Speech is a Force ability that enables a Time Sorcerer to understand the spoken language of any sentient he/she is interacting with, though it does not necessarily allow him/her to speak it, merely understand the general meaning. It is possibly an extension of the Telepathy power, as Revan was described as "ripping the Rakatan language from their minds," comprehending their tongue only moments after meeting them. Obi-Wan Kenobi also demonstrated this ability on Nelvaan, having been able to understand and translate the speech of a Nelvaanian shaman Orvos, though some of the nuances of the speech evaded him. This power proved ineffective at comprending the language of extremely xenophobic cultures, as evidenced by Revan's inability to understand the Sand People dialect. It can be guessed that cultures that actively refuse contact with other cultures, such as not caring whether a particular individual can communicate with them or not, can negate this ability. Use of the ability is aided if the sentient itself is Force-sensitive to some degree, as demonstrated when Luke Skywalker encountered the Qom Jha on Nirauan, and found he understood their language without making an attempt to interpret it.

This power was known to the Witches of Dathomir as the Spell of Interpretation.

Alter abilities were those which called upon the Force to manipulate things in the environment separate from the user. >The Time-Sorcerers Path: A Manual for Students of the Force

Mastery of this skill came hand-in-hand with mastery over lightsaber combat, as it was used in conjunction with use of the weapon. When used correctly, a practitioner could manipulate the energy of the lightsaber and reduce the damage caused to the target. Used while fighting both living and non-living opponents, this technique could make the difference between killing an opponent or completely disabling a droid or piece of machinery. name="FTGG"

Notes and referencesEdit

Alter Image was a Force power developed by Hyobu Sulloran which allowed the user to alter his or her own personal features, such as the height, weight, skin color, facial features, sex, voice, and body shape. These changes would stay as long as the Force-sensitive kept the power up, but would be dropped whenever the Force-user fell unconscious or simply lost concentration. However, other Force-sensitives skilled in receptive telepathy had a chance to see through this disguise which resulted in a contest of skills between the two Force-users. The power became more difficult to use the less the Force-user knew about the person being imitated. Template:Eras Template:Force power Alter Environment was a Force power that involved various techniques that allowed the user to manipulate nature, enabling the creation of phenomena such as Force whirlwinds or fog that could be used to attack or to shield the user from opponents. Plo Koon further modified this ability with his considerable knowledge of physics.

Alter Environment could be used to manipulate temperatures, creating freezing sub-zero temperatures in seconds, or blistering heat that could burn. With this ability, a user could generate electrical discharges over broad expanses of ground, vacate areas of air, or increase the pressure of the air to burst eardrums. The power allowed a Force-adept to form small earthquakes and fissures or gather the moisture in the air to bring about flash floods. Moreover, Alter Environment could influence already existing natural occurrences. For instance, a thunderstorm could be manipulated to unleash a burst of lightning, rain clouds to start up torrential rains, or cause the sky to hail. Windswept seas could be coaxed to rear up in massive waves or form whirlpools.

This ability utilized the innate Force energy, or life force, of the object being manipulated instead of the Force energy of the user. In other words, when a Force-adept used this power, he would use a small amount of his own power to harness the innate power already present. This could lead to the formation of killer waves and lightning storms with minimum effort and concentration, and depending on the amount of energy expended, little stamina. A greater knowledge in physics would result in more precise control, and a larger range of methods this power could be used, as well as improve the time it took to enact. However, a being would need to monitor the effects in order to keep them from spreading to disastrous consequences.

Streen and the Sith Emperor were notable adepts of these talents. The Sith Emperor used this ability to corrupt the environment of the planet Dromund Kaas.

Template:Eras Template:Citation Template:Cleanup Template:Force power Template:Quote Telekinesis, abbreviated TK, name="dt2The New Time-Sorcerers Order: Dark Tide II: Ruin was a neutral ability that most Force-sensitives had which allowed them to move and otherwise manipulate physical matter in a variety of ways, all with the power of the Force. The ability was virtually ubiquitous among Force sensitive individuals and organizations, though the techniques could differ greatly. It had a tremendous number of applications, both combative and utilitarian.

DescriptionEdit

The primary purpose of most telekinetic powers was to manipulate physical matter, allowing the user to touch, hold and otherwise move a target. Force-users could use this ability to push, pull, and lift targets, as well as to stop or redirect projectiles. name="Essential Guide to the ForceTime-Sorcerers vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force It could also be used to disarm or physically attacking opponents, as well as a method of defense for the user or the target. For a sufficiently skilled or powerful practitioner, the size, distance, weight and mass of the object did not matter. One could lift something as small as a piece of fruit to an X-Wing or be able to affect a target from another room or even several light years away while looking at them through a holocomm or viewscreen. name="Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back">Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back name="The Wrong Time Sorcerer">Template:TCW name="The Lost One" name="The Time-Sorcerers Who Knew Too Much">Template:TCW

Telekinesis also entailed applying and defying physical forces without physical contact and from a distance, with the strength and intensity of this force causing the feats performed with it ranging from making small to medium sized objects float or levitate weightlessly, to freezing the motion of moving targets, to crushing targets with the strength and resilience of metal with extreme amounts of pressure.

Despite the ability allowing the user the ability to manipulate targets without physical contact and from a variable distance, the precision, accuracy, magnitude, range and intensity of the ability was tied to the users concentration, willpower, emotions, senses, and spacial awareness. Therefore, a user power could be weakened, nullified, or destabilize, causing said user to be unable to properly control it. name="Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" This manipulation of force can also be enough to generate shockwaves, vibrations and even seismic energy, as well as concussive or even explosive force, which could be used to repel, damage or destroy targets. In addition, telekinesis could also utilize the air to achieve its affects by manipulating air pressure, currents and pockets. This allowed a user to perform feats such as creating explosive bursts of force or powerful winds. Not only could it be utilized for attack, but telekinesis could allow a user to create a usually invisible field or barrier of physical force with various sizes, shapes and intensities for defense.

For most users, physical or mental fatigue, stress, or disorientation would subsequently weaken, nullify or invalidate the use of such an ability. In the event of exhausting or stressing their powers or themselves, physically or mentally, users have to wait a minimum length of time before they can use it again or refrain from using it until the user regains sobriety, willpower and calmness. Such instances could hamper or limit the ability's use, especially in combat, resulting in Force users resorting to physical combat especially with the use of a lightsaber. The ability is usually accompanied by motion of the eyes, hands or even the entire body, the latter being the most common way to use the power, which can can also limit use of the ability, especially when the user's mind or senses are strained or overwhelmed.

ApplicationsEdit

Telekinesis had an extraordinary number of applications, including the following Force powers:

Movement-related powersEdit

These powers were used to move objects, people, and so on. They could be used in both a utility-oriented manner, or as a form of attack.

File:Obi-Wan force pull.jpg
File:DookuTime-Sorcerers EGTF.jpg

Move ObjectEdit

The basic use of telekinesis that involved stretching out one's feelings and will through the Force to take physical hold of a targeted object or objects, exerting one's will on it so that it performed as the user wished. The Force power functioned on the theory that the Force reacts to a Force-user's strength of will, allowing a user to apply the Force with their mind to some other space or object. While this use can allow a target to exert force on a target as if a user where physically interacting with it, it can also be used to suspend force already exerted on a target, such as gravity, allowing a user to levitate a target, defying its weight, or to attract and repel an object in a similar manner to magnetic or gravitational force. Savage Opress managed to stop a knife thrown by Sugi just before it reached the head of Darth Maul during a mission.

Force PullEdit

File:Forcepull.jpg

A telekinetic ability using the Force that could cause a material body to draw close to the user. The greater the user's aptitude with this, the heavier the object that could be pulled or the more wide arc or radius of the Force "wave". It could be used to pull weapons from enemies, or, at higher levels of skill, could be used to pull enemies themselves closer to a Time Sorcerer's lightsaber range. This power was also very useful when a chasm or hole lay between the caster and the opponent. It could also be used to pull foes to the ground. One of the most powerful uses of the ability was pulling a starship from the sky. In 3641 BBY, Khem Val claimed that Tulak Hord once pulled a ship the size of the Endar Spire onto a planet's surface. name="SWTORStar Wars: The Old Republic In 2 BBY, Galen Marek demonstrated the ability on Raxus Prime. Although unsure if he could, with great effort he managed to use the Force on an already-falling Imperial I-class Star Destroyer, turning it and sending it crashing into a Imperial ore facility. name="The Force UnleashedStar Wars: The Force Unleashed

Applications of telekinesis deriving from uses of Force PullEdit

RendEdit

Rend was a dark power that allowed the practitioner to move a single target, be it creature or object, in two different directions simultaneously. name="The Clone Wars Campaign GuideThe Clone Wars Campaign Guide, page 52.

Force DisarmEdit

Force Disarm used the Force to pull a weapon from an opponent's grasp.

 name="Roleplaying Game: Saga Edition Core Rulebook"  The Force-user could then choose to have the weapon fly into his hand. Yoda used Force Disarm to disarm Asajj Ventress when she tried to assassinate Toydarian King Katuunko, though it is noted that due to Yoda's greater power in the Force, he would have been able to overwhelm any attempts of Ventress to resist his power with her own.  name="Ambush">Template:TCW Prior to the Occupation of Bespin, Darth Vader used this power to disarm Han Solo as part of the capture of Solo and his companions by Imperial forces.  name="Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back">Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back Starkiller had employed force disarm against riot troopers by taking their weapons and using it as a weapon.  >Star Wars the force unleashed 2 

Force PushEdit

File:Yodapush.png

The most basic applications of Force Push utilized telekinetic energy to push objects away from the caster. At more powerful levels, Force Push could create a telekinetic impulse via the Force, launching a concussive burst of pressurized air akin to an explosive force. Depending on the power of the user, this ability could be used to do anything from staggering or shoving a target to shattering stone. The greater the user's telekinetic aptitude, the larger the pressure differential, and thus the stronger the effect and the heavier the target. With practice, a skilled Force user could increase the range and arc of the blast without lowering the average kinetic energy, creating a blanketed wave instead of a focused impulse. Truly gifted practitioners could generate a concussive blast that would radiate from them for dozens of meters in all directions, detonating with the physical force of a conventional explosive. Starkiller, while under the influence of Force rage, was capable of releasing a blast powerful enough to disintegrate Force-insensitive foes. name="Star Wars: The Force Uneashed II (video game)Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

File:Force insensitive SWGTCG.JPG

This power was an effective tool for keeping enemies at a distance. Particularly ruthless Force users could use a well-timed Force push to send their enemies tumbling off penthouse balconies or into deep chasms. Additionally, Force users who were exceptionally skilled or powerful could even use Force Push to kill their opponents via the sheer force of the Push itself. Both Darth Vader and Galen Marek demonstrated this ability on multiple occasions. Beyond offense, this power had many utilitarian applications, such as pulverizing heavy debris and other obstructions too large to remove without specialized equipment. It should also be noted that the non-damaging type of Force Push was sometimes seen in combat, such as using a burst of telekinetic energy to deflect large projectiles such as rockets.

A trained Force user could resist Force Push, presumably by shielding themselves with telekinetic energy of their own. However, this shielding could be penetrated or overwhelmed by an opponent of sufficient skill or power.

Applications of telekinesis deriving from uses of Force PushEdit

Force WaveEdit

File:Force Wave.jpg

One of the most powerful forms of Force Push, it was essentially a wave of pure Force energy that pulsed out from the Force user that utilized it which knocked back anything within the power's blast radius. The strength of Force Wave was extremely potent, and its raw power was on more than one occasion described as a telekinetic explosion. name="KotORStar Wars: Knights of the Old Republic name="KotORIIStar Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords It was more widespread, like a wave, hence the name, and could push multiple opponents at once. It was very useful in tight, cramped quarters when the Force user needed room to move, since Force users could damage their opponents by pushing them into the walls. It could also be used as "crowd control," when overwhelming numbers of enemies immediately swarm toward the user. Using Force Wave could be used to give the Force user time to rethink their strategy and cast more Force powers, or they could also attack fallen opponents as they are stunned.

Mace Windu and Yoda used this power against Super Battle Droids during the Battle of Coruscant. Mace also used this power when he lost his lightsaber on Dantooine in the Clone Wars. This power was also used by Darth Bane against his former lightsaber instructor on Lehon to bring part of the Temple of the Ancients down on him, killing him. Darth Plagueis was powerful enough to use a Force Wave to nearly atomize six Maladian assassins after being seriously injured in a surprise attack. Darth Vader was also capable of utilizing this ability, showcasing his skill during the Gentis Coup when he used one to kill dozens of Gentis's soldiers simultaneously. Luke Skywalker also used this move during his Duel with Darth Caedus. The most powerful known user of this ability was the dark-side entity Abeloth, who once produced a wave so powerful that it destroyed the city of Tahv, disintegrating nearby beings and materials and causing objects further away to be shredded. Similar abilities to this was the dark side technique of Force Destruction and Force Shockwave.

File:TumsDidn'tHelp.jpg

Force RepulseEdit

An extremely powerful telekinetic Force power similar in function to Force Push, and perhaps even more to Force Blow, but on a far larger scale, akin to that of Force Wave, Force Repulse was no more or less than a gigantic telekinetic explosion. The user would concentrate on the Force and violently push it outwards, creating rapidly-expanding kinetic ripples in space, flinging nearby objects away at high velocity. The power only affected objects a certain distance away from the user, and therefore could be avoided by moving further away from the user. The primary difference between it and the Force Wave ability appeared to be that a Repulse always functioned as a spherical explosion that radiated from the user, while a Force Wave typically functioned in a circular or hemi-circular fashion. Darth Vader was a master of this ability, as were his apprentices, Galen Marek and Starkiller. Obi-Wan Kenobi also utilized it during the Battle of Muunilinst against the bounty hunter Durge, causing an explosion of Force energy that blew the Gen'Dai apart from within. Perhaps the most notably powerful user of the ability was Galen Marek's clone Starkiller, who could produce a repulse so violent and powerful that it could disintegrate enemies and the surrounding objects caught in the blast. Similar abilities to this was the dark side technique of Force Destruction, Force bomb and Force Shockwave. In addition, a more powerful technique of this was Force Maelstrom, which combined a telekinetic explosive field with a Protection bubble and the dark side ability of Force Lightning to cause nearby objects to orbit the field and then be shot out in all directions in a forceful blast charged with Force Lightning.

Force BlastEdit

File:OmminTime SorcererKiller.jpg

Force Blast was a powerful telekinetic exertion of the Force that was basically a more powerful version of Force push, where the user would (hence it's name) blast opponents and obstacles out of the way in a much more violent manner than a simple push. Galen Marek was a notable user of this ability. name="The Force Unleashed Campaign GuideThe Force Unleashed Campaign Guide Darth Vader was also capable of using this power, as demonstrated during the Battle of Kamino when he used the technique to shatter Starkiller's lightsabers. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (novel)">Star Wars: The Force Unleashed two A similar ability to this was Force Burst.

File:Force Burst.png

Force BurstEdit

Force Burst was a sphere of concentrated Force energy shot at or sent after a target at the utmost accuracy and speed. The strength of the Burst depended on the amount of time and energy put into it. A Burst's size and intensity could range anywhere from huge and combustible, to small but relatively deadly. It was usually semi-transparent with a blue or green shade, while the Sith variant had a reddish shade.

File:Forceorb.jpg

Force OrbEdit

Force Orb was created from pure Force energy that obstructed the surrounding environment, forming a bubble of air. Under normal circumstances, it only worked underwater. Kit Fisto utilized it during the Battle of Mon Calamari, creating a ball of air underwater and using it to disable a Crab cannon. During the Battle of Mon Cala, Kit Fisto and Anakin Skywalker attempted to use this power to make a makeshift air helmet for Padmé Amidala to breath when Riff Tamson broke her helmet spitefully with his jaws. They succeeded, but Jar Jar Binks's Gungan saliva proved a more effective seal.

Force ThrowEdit

File:Vader TCG AltCardArt 2015 World Championship Prize.png

A telekinetic ability of the Force, perhaps related to Force Push. It caused objects, and even people, to be hurled toward a target at an astounding velocity. A skilled Force user could throw multiple, large objects simultaneously at great speed, as evidenced by Palpatine during his duel with Yoda in the Grand Convocation Chamber of the Senate Building, during which he hurled repulsorpods at the Time-Sorcerers Master. Anakin Skywalker used this ability when he was attacked on Geonosis, hurling droideka arms at oncoming Geonosian warriors. As Darth Vader, he used it to defeat Imperial Atlantean Knights Roan Shryne in combat on Kashyyyk. He later used it to overwhelm and subdue his own son, Luke Skywalker, during their battle in Cloud City on Bespin.

Force WhirlwindEdit

File:Whirlwind.jpg

A more advanced form of Force Push, and a rather feeble version of Force Wave. The Time Sorcerer would alter the air currents around an opponent, turning it into a maelstrom. This swirling force would lift an opponent into the air, spin them around, and leave them incapable of moving out of it. This allowed the Time-Sorcerers to attack without resistance. One of the most notable uses of this ability was from Jacen Solo when confronting Tsavong Lah on Duro. Time-Sorcerers Master Streen and Teneniel Djo demonstrated a natural talent for this ability, as well as Plo Koon, who further modified it with his knowledge. Darth Malak used this ability during his confrontation with Revan on the Leviathan. The former Dark Lords of Imperial Tauron Empire, as well as the Ho'Din Time-Sorcerers Master Plett may also have known how to use it. This ability was known to the Witches of Dathomir as the Spell of Storm. Meetra Surik and her companions may also have used this Force power during her quest to save the galaxy.

Force BarrierEdit

File:Force Barrier DaL.png

Force Barrier was both a defensive and offensive technique that allowed the user to create a barrier or wall of Force energy around the intended target, be it self, friend, or foe. This barrier could be insulated against both physical objects and energies, to the point where a strong enough barrier could defend against sonic attacks. Obi-Wan Kenobi used this technique when a bounty hunter was firing at him with a sonic boom grenade launcher. However, the strength of the barrier could eventually weaken with constant battering and exhaustion of the user.

Valenthyne Farfalla demonstrated this when briefly encasing Darth Bane/Legends in a Force Barrier and halted his attacks by building up energy of a barrier and single concentrated burst, until Bane broke free and the shield exploded into energy fragments. name="Rule of Two" Similar techniques to Force Barrier where the Adiabatic shield, Protection bubble, Force deflection, Energy resistance, and Force resistance.

Constricting TechniquesEdit

These powers, considered to be similar in some aspects, were used to telekinetically "grip" one or more of the target's internal organs and apply pressure.

Force WoundEdit

This power allowed a Force user to telekinetically apply pressure to their opponent's organs or body. If not resisted, it could crush the victim's heart or lungs.

Force KillEdit

This power was used to telekinetically destroy the victim's organs. On Korriban, Darth Tyranus used Force kill on the black-market dealer Auben's heart, killing her instantly. >Time-Sorcerers Quest: The Final Showdown Darth Bane also used Force kill on his father by envisioning a giant hand squeezing his father's heart resulting in a fatal heart attack. name="PoDDarth Bane: Path of Destruction A similar technique to this was Heart stun, which halted the heart and, if properly used, could place a victim in type of stasis.

Darth Vader knew how to use this power, and demonstrated the ability to stop a victim's heart or freeze his lungs with the Force. >Shadows of the Empire

Force ChokeEdit

File:Force Choke SWDA.png

This was an attack via the Force that was used to crush a living being's throat or trachea, in effect choking or strangling them if used at a low level. Force Choke could also be used to apply physical force on the target's neck to allow a user to grip their target by the neck without physically touching them. With telekinetic grip on the victim's neck, a user could potentially break their victim's neck if enough pressure is applied. Sith Masters used this when wanting to punish people or prove their strength to a number of individuals. Those under its effect would usually clutch at their throats. Although it was more commonly used by the Sith, it was used by Time Sorcerer as well.

Possibly the most notable display of this ability was by Darth Vader in the Death Star. Admiral Conan Antonio Motti expressed disdain towards the Dark Lord's "sorcerer's ways," to which Vader replied with a Force Choke to his throat, saying "I find your lack of faith disturbing." {{|Lack of faith.ogg|listen}}

Most individuals needed only a live visual of their victim in order to perform the technique. Darth Vader demonstrated this by choking Admiral Kendal Ozzel over a viewscreen, even though the admiral was on the bridge and Vader was in his meditation chamber. However, this ability requires extreme focus upon the object at hand, any break of concentration and the choke would be removed and the target's freedom of movement restored. Some individuals were also powerful enough and experienced enough to not require any visuals to kill someone via force choke, such as when Letta Turmond's Time-Sorcerers backer, later revealed to be Barriss Offee, name="The Wrong Time Sorcerer" killed her via a force choke and subsequently framed Ahsoka Tano for the deed, name="The Time-Sorcerers Who Knew Too Much" as well as when Darth Sidious used the ability to kill the Shadow Collective guards standing near the door before opening it to confront his former apprentice, Darth Maul and the latter's apprentice, Savage Opress. name="The Lawless">Template:TCW Darth Vader was also seen using this ability to express his dissatisfaction with an Imperial officer during one of his Time-Sorcerers hunts, choking the man while staring pointedly away from him. Shortly thereafter, he did something similar to Kento Marek, breaking the Time Sorcerer's neck via a Force grip while he was looking away from him. name="The Force Unleashed"

Emperor Palpatine could also choke a target remotely, such as when he punished Admiral Termo for speaking out of turn during a hologram communication. name="Mission 3Star Wars Missions 3: Attack on Delrakkin

Darth Vader was in fact one of the most infamous users of this Force technique, often choking those who displeased or had failed him, in a clear and powerful demonstration of the Force to any non-believers in view of the grim display. Anakin Skywalker, on his onset of becoming Darth Vader and his fall to Dark side of the Force, used Force Choke on his pregnant wife, Padmé Amidala, after accusing her of bringing Obi-Wan Kenobi to Mustafar to kill him.

This was not the first time he used the technique. Early in the Clone Wars, he had used the Force to choke Jabiimi Loyalist Orliss Gillmunn at the conclusion of the Battle of Jabiim. Later in the same conflict, Skywalker used this technique to torture Separatist leader Poggle the Lesser after the Second Battle of Geonosis. After futile attempts by Time-Sorcerers Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to gain intelligence from the Separatist leader, Anakin lost his temper when the captured Poggle refused to give him vital information that might save Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee from the brain worms. He would also later use it on Asajj Ventress when interrogating her on who had framed his apprentice, and later on on the Zygerrian queen, Miraj Scintel, after she threatened his master and apprentice with death if he did not obey her. During the Banking Clan investigation, he again used Force choke on Rush Clovis during an anger-fueled hand-to-hand brawl in Padmé Amidala's apartment.

File:VentressChokesKenobiSkywalker-Nightsisters.png

Other Force users known to have used this power included Darth Revan, who was seen choking a Republic soldier who was on his flagship. Darth Tyranus choked his former apprentice, Komari Vosa, after being defeated by a bounty hunter.

In the time after the Great Sith War, a Bimm later known as Toki Tollivar carried out a prolonged campaign of serial killing. He killed all of his victims by choking them with the Force, which led to bounties posted from Corellia for the "Corellian Strangler". He was later discovered by Zayne Carrick aboard the Chancellor Fillorean and was killed by Demagol.

Although users of the dark side reveled in using the power, especially for humiliation, this power was used by the light side as well. One of the most famous Time-Sorcerers to use Force Choke after the Great Time-Sorcerers Purge was Luke Skywalker who used it against Gamorrean guards in the process of gaining entrance to Jabba's Palace. Luke also used it on one of the Nightsisters. >The Courtship of Princess Leia In both instances, he used his ability to disable his opponent, not to kill them. In 40 ABY, Jacen Solo used this technique against a female Hapan officer who questioned his authority to chastise her, releasing her afterward. He also Force-choked Patra Tebut for disobeying orders, this time to lethal effect. Kueller used Force choke on Femon. Gorc, who would keep a victim stationary while his "brother" Picaroon C. Boodle attacked; Maw, who took pleasure in his enemies' suffering. The Time-Sorcerers Exile could also use the power regardless of alignment. Template:Noncanonstart In 3 ABY, during a mission to the ice planet of Hoth, Lord Starkiller used Force choke on Captain Keenah when in contact with him over an intercom while fighting his way through a collapsing Wampa-infested ice cavern. Starkiller did not require visual contact with Keenah in order to use this ability. >Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Template:Noncanonend

Force GripEdit

This move was similar to Force Choke and Crush, as it was used to grip enemies with the Force. The target could be seized with great strength, lifted off their feet and suspended in the air by a powerful Force user. If used to a high degree, it could crush an opponent's bones or organs.

File:Jace Dallin choke.JPG

Very similar to Force Choke, the main difference between the two was that choke was used to strangle its victim, as it seems the usual method was to use the Force to crush the throat or windpipe of its victim, whereas Grip was used to literally grab someone with the Force, lifting them up into the air while either choking or throwing them. The grip was commonly applied to not simply levitate targets, but to exert physical force on a target to simulate physical contact. This allowed a user to grasp a specific part of their victim, such as the neck, or, potentially, to exert an equal amount of pressure on the entire body to better restraining and incapacitating them. More powerful users were quite capable of lifting the intended target off the ground and moving them through the air. Those most experienced with Force Grip needed only a live visual of their victim in order to perform the technique.

Some used this provision as an advantage to escape the Grip's clutches; Time-Sorcerers could implement Force Persuasion or Force blinding to obscure a Grip-user's vision, or some could immediately leap to escape it (with mixed results in either case, depending on the user's knowledge of the Force). Boba Fett was known to have been able to escape a Force Grip by firing his jetpack, utilizing the external propulsion to fly safely out of the Grip-user's line of sight.

If one could not escape the sight of a Grip-user, the next best method was to disrupt the user's concentration. Time Sorcerer in the time of the New Republic could commonly do this by simply pushing their enemy with the Force, and others were known to have broken a Grip by blasting the user with a weapon. These solutions were both limited, however; those most powerful in the use of the technique could maintain concentration during a Force Push, and even more could control the Grip so well that the choked target would not be able to even draw his or her weapon. A skilled user would not restrict himself to only the grip to subdue opponents, some would take the opportunity to simultaneously move an opponent over a fall, throw him, slam him into a wall, or merely force an opponent to disable his lightsaber, then follow with an attack.

File:Dooku Obi-wan choke.JPG

Force users known to have used this power included Count Dooku, who used it on Obi-Wan Kenobi when Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker boarded General Grievous's flagship to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine; and Desann, who used the power at least once on Kyle Katarn.

File:Choketavion-JO.jpg

Kyle Katarn himself used this very Force power, for he first exercised a degree of control over Force Grip during the Reborn crisis, against Tavion Axmis, who had enraged Katarn by her involvement in his partner's apparent death. Though Katarn released Axmis once she revealed that the supposed killing was a ruse, and though he would quiet his anger from that moment forth, Katarn would continue to demonstrate the power through the rest of his days. Darth Vader's apprentice, Galen Marek, was also extremely competent with Grip and employed it as one of his primary weapons. Anakin Skywalker was seen using it in his duel with Barriss Offee at the Time Sorcerer Temple, preventing her from attacking and ending the duel. When he became Vader, he would routinely utilize it against fellow Force users, and developed his skill with it to the point that he could grip and throw even Starkiller with it. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (video game)Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Force Grip was not always regarded as a dark side ability, as a Time Sorcerer could use it to peacefully immobilize an opponent, although this could also be used to control the motor functions of an opponent. Dooku was also capable of telekinetically manipulating people's motor skills, such as when he Force choked Turk Falso while simultaneously forcing the pirate to take out his blaster and shoot his comrade. He performed a similar feat when he made Padmé Amidala aim at and shoot Bec Lawise.

Force CrushEdit

File:Force Crush.jpg

One of the most violent Force abilities known to the Sith and the Time Sorcerer, this deadly technique lifted the opponent into the air and, as they were floating, their body would implode as it was crushed by the Force.

Obi-Wan Kenobi used this technique on two commando droids in Kadavo to recover his lightsaber after been fighting with the Zygerrian Darts D'Nar and giving Anakin Skywalker time to destroy the bombs around the city.

During the latter part of the Clone Wars, Mace Windu used Force Crush on General Grievous as the cyborg was attempting to transfer his "captive" Palpatine to the Invisible Hand, thus crushing one of the few organs he had left: his lungs. This was in part responsible for his constant choking and coughing throughout the rest of his life. name="CW25">Template:CW Though his lungs could have been repaired with surgery, he didn't live long enough to get it. This instance of a Time Sorcerer using the technique on a living being was a rare one, as most Time Sorcerer deemed the technique too violent and dark to use in that manner.

File:Techno union engineer boss.JPG

Darth Vader, who would not hesitate to use Force Crush and similar techniques on Imperial personnel that he deemed incompetent, was capable of crushing small vehicles on the battlefield. name="Star Wars: Empire at WarStar Wars: Empire at War Even during the end of the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker displayed this power on Nelvaan when he used it to break the Techno Union scientist before his attempt to escape.

Although the Horn family was deficient in telekinesis, Nejaa Halcyon was able to employ Force Crush against Nikkos Tyris after absorbing the energy from Anzat's lightsaber. Darth Traya also used this powerful attack to compensate for her age and lack of physical strength. It made for an effective display of her power. Darth Bane was also a notable practitioner of this power as seen when he crushed Qordis on Ruusan.

Galen Marek was also noted to use this ability against an AT-ST on Raxus Prime during his assault on the Imperial factory. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (video game)"

Lightsaber combatEdit

Saber BarrierEdit

File:Lightsaber Barrier.jpg

A defensive technique, the saber barrier was a telekinetic lightsaber combat technique used by some practitioners of dual-saber combat in Luke Skywalker's New Time Sorcerer Order. It consisted of having the lightsabers whirl hovering in a horizontal circle around the saber-wielding Time Sorcerer, thus creating a defensive yet deadly wall of lightsaber blades, defending the Time Sorcerer primarily against melee attacks.

Time Sorcerer Master Mace Windu was a practitioner of saber barrier, as were the Dark Time Sorcerer Alora and several New Reborn. Jaden Korr might also have mastered this technique. Darth Traya used a variant of this power in her final confrontation with Meetra Surik, conjuring three violet lightsabers to fight for her.

Saber ThrowEdit

File:Lightsaber Throw GH by Shoemaker.jpg

It was an offensive use of the lightsaber. It is not clear if it was an ability in its own right or a technique combining powers such as Force Pull. The Force user, whether by manually locking the blade in the 'on' position or holding in the activation button using the Force, could throw the lightsaber in a boomerang fashion, with it cutting its way through obstacles and (usually after deactivation) returning to the hand of the caster. Variations in the skill of users meant that some could hurl their lightsabers great distances, make mid-air course corrections, or keep them hovering in place. These techniques, finely honed, could be combined to make telekinetic lightsaber combat possible.

Also, there was a destructive variation of the technique where the saber could be thrown straight towards the target.

It was extremely damaging to anything alive, if it hit vital parts of the body, such as heart or head. Galen Marek was a notable practitioner of this skill. His clone was also quite skilled with it, and would often throw both of his weapons simultaneously into troop formations to devastating effect.

Telekinetic lightsaber combatEdit

File:Levitating lightsabers.jpg

Telekinetic lightsaber combat techniques made use of telekinesis in lightsaber combat. Some telekinetic lightsaber combat techniques, like the Saber throw, were offensive, while others were defensive.

File:KineticCombat.JPG

Darth Traya displayed the most remarkable form of telekinetic lightsaber combat—having the ability to wield at least three lightsabers independently in combat, holding each of them aloft with the Force, and having them fight with a will of its own.

The Reborn Revan utilized a similar technique during his fight with the strike team on Yavin inside the Temple of Sacrifice, using both his backup and the blade of his former friend, Malak, to combat his opponents several times during the confrontation; however they were easily knocked down into the center of the chamber or over the edge several times before his retreat from the temple.

Darth Bane demonstrated this ability when he telekinetically used his lightsaber to kill three young boys while their father helplessly looked on. Millennia later, Mace Windu would use the ability during the Battle of Coruscant. While brief, his skill with the Force allowed him to unclip his weapon from his belt and activate it, destroying a Super battle droid with one swift stroke. The cloned Starkiller was capable of using this ability to attack whenever he was empowered through Force rage.

Other applicationsEdit

LevitationEdit

File:Time SorcererLevitation.jpg

Levitation was a Force power that allowed Time Sorcerer to suspend themselves against the force of gravity. Levitation required no direct physical contact. Using the Force, an individual could then hover in place or move about wherever they desired. Skilled and powerful Force users were able to use this ability to temporarily defy gravity, inertia, friction and other physical forces to enhance their mobility, to the point of gliding.

Revan briefly used levitation to attune his connection to the Force during his 're-training' at the Time Sorcerer Academy on Dantooine.

During the Second Great Galactic War, during a Kaggath on Corellia, Darth Thanaton used this ability to escape from the future Darth Nox.

Kaox Krul and Crian Maru levitated themselves above a lake while they fought during the Duel on Balowa.

Imperial Atlantean Knights Dace Diath used levitation to carefully descend to the surface of Ossus after surviving the crash of his Star Saber XC-01 starfighter.

Force FlightEdit

File:Dooku's Force Flight.JPG

Template:Quote Force Flight was a Force power that enabled the user to telekinetically move themselves toward a specific destination, taking levitation (see above) to an extreme degree. To use this Force power took a great deal of concentration.

The Dark Time Sorcerer Maw was skilled in this power. After having his lower body severed by the Time Sorcerer Qu Rahn, Maw initially relied on a repulsorlift for transport, but he soon learned to wield Force Flight so well that it became second nature. Darth Tyranus, name="CWC6Clone Wars Chapter 6 Darth Vader, and Darth Sidious name="BFIIStar Wars: Battlefront II name="TFUStar Wars: The Force Unleashed may have also possessed this power, being able to hover above the ground in standard gravity. The Dark Time Sorcerer Yun may have possessed this ability as well, to some degree. His master, Jerec, also possessed this power, demonstrating it in the Valley of the Time Sorcerer. Luke Skywalker could use this power, as he demonstrated on several occasions. His wife had also learned this skill by 40 ABY. The ancient Imperial Tauron Lord Darth Thanaton was also able to use the Force to levitate, yet with better control to such a degree that he could indeed fly. name="SWTOR" Ganner Rhysode once mentioned to Corran Horn that he could levitate them both for almost a kilometer—but that it would be highly energy-consuming. It is possible that Force Flight had some relation to Floating Meditation, a meditation technique where the user floated several inches off the ground during meditation.

Force WindEdit

Template:See also An ancient Sith technique. This power would allow the Force user to manipulate and channel air currents to form a powerful and destructive tornado that could lift up targets and fling them about. name="Tales of the Time-Sorcerers CompanionTales of the Time-Sorcerers Companion, page 88. During his training at the Yavin 4 Streen used this power to lift the comatosed Luke Skywalker in the air, when he was tricked by the spirit of Exar Kun. He also used it during the attack on Yavin 4 in 12 ABY to disable incoming TIE fighters, taking out 4 fighters by smashing them in each other.

File:MaulKnife-Eminence.png

Projected fightingEdit

An application of telekinesis which could be used to harm an opponent without physical contact. The damage inflicted using projected fighting was dependent upon the attacker's physical strength—the power effectively acted to extend their physical body in hand-to-hand combat. The user could also choose to attack with less than full strength, in order to stun rather than injure. A target could defend against projected fighting as though it were a standard hand-to-hand attack, or if Force-sensitive, by using the Force. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy SourcebookThe Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook Knowledge of unarmed hand-to-hand combat techniques and pure physical strength would also make projected fighting techniques more effective. The power could be used against any opponent within the attacker's line of sight, and was easier to use against closer opponents. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook" The use of projected fighting was dangerous not only for the intended target, but for the attacker. As it used the Force to deliberately assault another, it brought the user closer to the dark side. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook" Jacen Solo used this technique during his interrogation of Ailyn Vel during the Second Galactic Civil War, eventually killing her. name="BloodlinesLegacy of the Force: Bloodlines

Specific means incuded telekinetically hurling dirt, dust and debris at a foe affecting its perception. One could also throw a small object in the path of an incoming projectile, to prevent it from striking them. name="Time Sorcerer Academy Training ManualTime Sorcerer Academy Training Manual

Similar techniques to this was Force punch, Force kick, and Shadowstrike.

UsersEdit

File:Darovit exploding hand.png

Before Count Dooku renounced his commission, he made recordings on the Holocron of Asli Krimsan dealing with telekinesis. These teachings became required viewing for two generations of Time Sorcerer apprentices.

While training him on Dagobah, Yoda told Luke Skywalker that the size and weight of an object was only relevant in the mind of the practitioner, and that once the mental distinction about an object's size could be let go of, objects of any size could be moved. Yoda demonstrated this by lifting Luke's X-wing out of the swamp.

Anakin Skywalker used it when he lifted a piece of fruit to cut for Padmé Amidala and returned one of the pieces to her.

Revan used it to lift and move several objects, including two chairs and a datapad around himself in a circular motion, while he also elevated himself in a technique called Floating Meditation in the Time Sorcerer academy on Dantooine.

Kyle Katarn used it to hold up a wall of rocks after Jaden Korr battled with Rosh Penin and Tavion Axmis while Korr used Katarn's lightsaber to cut them to safety.

Rahm Kota used it to rip part of a TIE fighter factory off and send it hurtling into the atmosphere of Nar Shaddaa while still inside of it.

Time Sorcerer Master Corran Horn was one Time Sorcerer who was weak in telekinesis, a long standing inability in his family's Time Sorcerer history.

Darth Traya used it to use three lightsabers simultaneously after her remaining hand was cut off by Meetra Surik.

File:Saber Throw SWLcore.png

Mace Windu used it to hurl a vibro-ax in his final duel with Kar Vastor. Count Dooku employed it during his battle against Master Yoda on Geonosis, and again while dueling Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker on board the Invisible Hand. Palpatine used it against Master Yoda in his battle in the Senate Building, and much later used it to unlock Luke Skywalker's restraints when he was brought aboard the Death Star. Kreia used it while battling against Meetra Surik. Carnor Jax, a former member of the Emperor's Royal Guard and aspiring Sith Lord, had some telekinetic powers.

Among the most skilled users of telekinesis were the Zeison Sha. Neither Time Sorcerer nor Sith, their skilled use of telekinetic force use was developed over decades of simply surviving their planet's harsh environment, surpassing even some of the most powerful of Time Sorcerer in their skills. Their weapon of choice was a discblade, a circular bladed weapon that was thrown and manipulated with the Force and could be recalled. It required great skill in telekinesis to be wielded effectively.

Darth Vader's valet also utilized telekinesis, a power said to be inherent to his species. It was unknown whether this was a manifestation of Force-sensitivity or some other kind of supernatural talent.

Similarly, certain other species, such as Mind-witches, also held telekinetic powers that may or may not have been Force-related.

There were several impressive displays of telekinesis. The Time Sorcerer Dorsk 81, utilizing the channeled Force powers of all available Time Sorcerer of Luke Skywalker's Time Sorcerer Praxeum, used telekinesis to push seventeen Imperial I-class Star Destroyers out of the Yavin system. The massive amount of Force energy claimed the Time Sorcerer's life.

Another extreme display of telekinesis was accomplished by Darth Nihilus. Using the power, he pulled a Centurion-class battlecruiser out of the massive artificial gravity well that the Mass Shadow Generator had created around Malachor V, a gravity well so powerful that it had nearly obliterated the planet itself.

Behind the scenesEdit

TelekinesisEdit

In the Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Roleplaying Game for streamlined play, many similar uses of telekinesis were renamed "Move object," also called "Object manipulation." This includes Force Jump, Fall, Push, and Pull in most cases. Force strike/push and grip/choke were the only other telekinetic attacks. Otherwise, the skill is vaguely referred to as Object manipulation or "Alter."

ApplicationsEdit

Movement-related applicationsEdit

Force PushEdit
File:Fuapprentice.jpg

In the Star Wars Roleplaying game, "Force Push" was the standard telekinetic offensive for trained Force users. In the revised version, "Force Strike" is the use of the Force to "strike" the target, dealing damage more like a punch than a push. Using Force Strike on a living target (as opposed to a droid or inanimate object) was considered an act of the dark side until Time Sorcerer Counseling 60. "Force Push" became a variant of this—only usable by creatures such as jakobeasts—in which the opponent is knocked down in the more familiar way. As one of the few offensive powers not fundamentally dark in nature, Force Push frequently forms the cornerstone of a Time Sorcerer's offensive arsenal. In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel there are three levels of Force Push. The first is the conventional Force Push, which knocks back an opponent; the second is called Force Whirlwind, which lifts off an opponent from the ground and creates a whirlwind around him; the last is more like the first one, except that it affects a far greater range in front of the player.

File:TheenFida ForcePush.jpg
Force GripEdit

One exception to the requisite of maintaining visual sight when using a Force Grip does exist in the Darth Bane: Path of Destruction novel, where Lord Hoth strangled and killed a Sith Warrior that almost fell on him him in attack, holding her in midair, and while Hoth was staring transfixed in the opposite direction.

Force WhirlwindEdit

The most powerful user of this ability was Anakin Skywalker in the non-canon story "What if the father never rescued Anakin from the Dark Side?" in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Magazine 7. In it, Anakin skywalker, in a duel against Yoda and Darth Sidious, conjured a Force Whirlwind so strong that it eventually evolved into a hurricane, which destroyed much of the senate building in its wake.

Force WaveEdit

Admittedly, it has the power to destroy an entire droid squadron. This was demonstrated by Mace Windu at the Battle of Dantooine, when he was without his lightsaber. Darth Vader seems to use a very powerful Force Wave in the computer game Star Wars: Empire at War, not only pushing enemies at a great distance, but also killing them. In the Revenge of the Sith game, Obi-Wan and Anakin use a Force Wave to clear a path for them to escape battle droids aboard the Invisible Hand.

Lightsaber combatEdit

File:SaberThrow-Deceived.jpg
Saber ThrowEdit

Saber throw is seen only three times in the six movies, yet is comparatively common in video games. This is most likely due to the desire to add a ranged dimension to lightsabers, which are more typically thought of as melee weapons. In the movies, saber throw is used by Dooku against Yoda in Attack of the Clones (where it can only be seen in a few frames) as Yoda leapt on surfaces to avoid the Sith's blows, by Yoda against a 501st Legion clone trooper in Revenge of the Sith, and by Darth Vader against Luke Skywalker in Return of the Time Sorcerer.

Saber BarrierEdit

The saber barrier technique was introduced in Star Wars: Episode I Time Sorcerer Power Battles as Mace Windu's special power. While the player's character cannot move while executing this move, non-player characters can actually "jump out" from the barrier. The technique is named on Star Wars: Imperial Atlantean Knights : Time Sorcerer Academy, and in the 'datapad' in-game.

File:Tonho Telekinetic.jpg

Other applicationsEdit

Force FlightEdit

Many fans insist that most examples of this are not actual instances of "flight" but merely a slowing of movement during a fall, or added power to the legs during a jump. The determining factor should be the actual movement involved, falling (Dooku's floating, Kenobi and Skywalker falling great distances), leaps (Mace Windu on Dantooine) or hovering (the witches of Dathomir). With the exception of Dathomir, Lord Nyax, and specific instances in Battlefront, all other uses were some variation of moving an object, oneself.

Force flight was also mentioned in the 2001 Dark Side Sourcebook by Wizards of the Coast as an ability that the Witches of Dathomir possess. That talent has since been redesigned to afford movement for a brief period of time, but not prolonged flight.

Some assert that Mace Windu exercised the Force flight power in "Chapter 13" of the Clone Wars cartoon series; however, this has not been confirmed, and can be seen as an extreme demonstration of Windu's skill at telekinetically moving himself and droids quickly and for far distances.

Morag the Tulgah sorceress was able to fly in the comic Ewoks 12: The Thorn Monster. This ability is shown on the front cover and several pages inside. Wicket even says, "Look, Morag is flying to the brush." Morag's powers are attributed to magic; however, the Hyperspace article "Castaways of Endor" claims that all magic shown in Star Wars: Ewoks is, in fact, performed through the use of the Force.

Notes and referencesEdit

Template:Interlang

Template:Eras Template:Citation Template:Cleanup Template:Force power Template:Quote Telekinesis, abbreviated TK, name="dt2The New Time Sorcerer Order: Dark Tide II: Ruin was a neutral ability that most Force-sensitives had which allowed them to move and otherwise manipulate physical matter in a variety of ways, all with the power of the Force. The ability was virtually ubiquitous among Force sensitive individuals and organizations, though the techniques could differ greatly. It had a tremendous number of applications, both combative and utilitarian.

DescriptionEdit

The primary purpose of most telekinetic powers was to manipulate physical matter, allowing the user to touch, hold and otherwise move a target. Force-users could use this ability to push, pull, and lift targets, as well as to stop or redirect projectiles. name="Essential Guide to the ForceTime Sorcerer vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force It could also be used to disarm or physically attacking opponents, as well as a method of defense for the user or the target. For a sufficiently skilled or powerful practitioner, the size, distance, weight and mass of the object did not matter. One could lift something as small as a piece of fruit to an X-Wing or be able to affect a target from another room or even several light years away while looking at them through a holocomm or viewscreen. name="Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back">Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back name="The Wrong Time Sorcerer">Template:TCW name="The Lost One" name="The Time Sorcerer Who Knew Too Much">Template:TCW

Telekinesis also entailed applying and defying physical forces without physical contact and from a distance, with the strength and intensity of this force causing the feats performed with it ranging from making small to medium sized objects float or levitate weightlessly, to freezing the motion of moving targets, to crushing targets with the strength and resilience of metal with extreme amounts of pressure.

Despite the ability allowing the user the ability to manipulate targets without physical contact and from a variable distance, the precision, accuracy, magnitude, range and intensity of the ability was tied to the users concentration, willpower, emotions, senses, and spacial awareness. Therefore, a user power could be weakened, nullified, or destabilize, causing said user to be unable to properly control it. name="Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" This manipulation of force can also be enough to generate shockwaves, vibrations and even seismic energy, as well as concussive or even explosive force, which could be used to repel, damage or destroy targets. In addition, telekinesis could also utilize the air to achieve its affects by manipulating air pressure, currents and pockets. This allowed a user to perform feats such as creating explosive bursts of force or powerful winds. Not only could it be utilized for attack, but telekinesis could allow a user to create a usually invisible field or barrier of physical force with various sizes, shapes and intensities for defense.

For most users, physical or mental fatigue, stress, or disorientation would subsequently weaken, nullify or invalidate the use of such an ability. In the event of exhausting or stressing their powers or themselves, physically or mentally, users have to wait a minimum length of time before they can use it again or refrain from using it until the user regains sobriety, willpower and calmness. Such instances could hamper or limit the ability's use, especially in combat, resulting in Force users resorting to physical combat especially with the use of a lightsaber. The ability is usually accompanied by motion of the eyes, hands or even the entire body, the latter being the most common way to use the power, which can can also limit use of the ability, especially when the user's mind or senses are strained or overwhelmed.

ApplicationsEdit

Telekinesis had an extraordinary number of applications, including the following Force powers:

Movement-related powersEdit

These powers were used to move objects, people, and so on. They could be used in both a utility-oriented manner, or as a form of attack.

File:Obi-Wan force pull.jpg
File:DookuTime Sorcerer EGTF.jpg

Move ObjectEdit

The basic use of telekinesis that involved stretching out one's feelings and will through the Force to take physical hold of a targeted object or objects, exerting one's will on it so that it performed as the user wished. The Force power functioned on the theory that the Force reacts to a Force-user's strength of will, allowing a user to apply the Force with their mind to some other space or object. While this use can allow a target to exert force on a target as if a user where physically interacting with it, it can also be used to suspend force already exerted on a target, such as gravity, allowing a user to levitate a target, defying its weight, or to attract and repel an object in a similar manner to magnetic or gravitational force. Savage Opress managed to stop a knife thrown by Sugi just before it reached the head of Darth Maul during a mission.

Force PullEdit

File:Forcepull.jpg

A telekinetic ability using the Force that could cause a material body to draw close to the user. The greater the user's aptitude with this, the heavier the object that could be pulled or the more wide arc or radius of the Force "wave". It could be used to pull weapons from enemies, or, at higher levels of skill, could be used to pull enemies themselves closer to a Time Sorcerer's lightsaber range. This power was also very useful when a chasm or hole lay between the caster and the opponent. It could also be used to pull foes to the ground. One of the most powerful uses of the ability was pulling a starship from the sky. In 3641 BBY, Khem Val claimed that Tulak Hord once pulled a ship the size of the Endar Spire onto a planet's surface. name="SWTORStar Wars: The Old Republic In 2 BBY, Galen Marek demonstrated the ability on Raxus Prime. Although unsure if he could, with great effort he managed to use the Force on an already-falling Imperial I-class Star Destroyer, turning it and sending it crashing into a Imperial ore facility. name="The Force UnleashedStar Wars: The Force Unleashed

Applications of telekinesis deriving from uses of Force PullEdit

RendEdit

Rend was a dark power that allowed the practitioner to move a single target, be it creature or object, in two different directions simultaneously. name="The Clone Wars Campaign GuideThe Clone Wars Campaign Guide, page 52.

Force DisarmEdit

Force Disarm used the Force to pull a weapon from an opponent's grasp.

 name="Roleplaying Game: Saga Edition Core Rulebook"  The Force-user could then choose to have the weapon fly into his hand. Yoda used Force Disarm to disarm Asajj Ventress when she tried to assassinate Toydarian King Katuunko, though it is noted that due to Yoda's greater power in the Force, he would have been able to overwhelm any attempts of Ventress to resist his power with her own.  name="Ambush">Template:TCW Prior to the Occupation of Bespin, Darth Vader used this power to disarm Han Solo as part of the capture of Solo and his companions by Imperial forces.  name="Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back">Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back Starkiller had employed force disarm against riot troopers by taking their weapons and using it as a weapon.  >Star Wars the force unleashed 2 

Force PushEdit

File:Yodapush.png

The most basic applications of Force Push utilized telekinetic energy to push objects away from the caster. At more powerful levels, Force Push could create a telekinetic impulse via the Force, launching a concussive burst of pressurized air akin to an explosive force. Depending on the power of the user, this ability could be used to do anything from staggering or shoving a target to shattering stone. The greater the user's telekinetic aptitude, the larger the pressure differential, and thus the stronger the effect and the heavier the target. With practice, a skilled Force user could increase the range and arc of the blast without lowering the average kinetic energy, creating a blanketed wave instead of a focused impulse. Truly gifted practitioners could generate a concussive blast that would radiate from them for dozens of meters in all directions, detonating with the physical force of a conventional explosive. Starkiller, while under the influence of Force rage, was capable of releasing a blast powerful enough to disintegrate Force-insensitive foes. name="Star Wars: The Force Uneashed II (video game)Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

File:Force insensitive SWGTCG.JPG

This power was an effective tool for keeping enemies at a distance. Particularly ruthless Force users could use a well-timed Force push to send their enemies tumbling off penthouse balconies or into deep chasms. Additionally, Force users who were exceptionally skilled or powerful could even use Force Push to kill their opponents via the sheer force of the Push itself. Both Darth Vader and Galen Marek demonstrated this ability on multiple occasions. Beyond offense, this power had many utilitarian applications, such as pulverizing heavy debris and other obstructions too large to remove without specialized equipment. It should also be noted that the non-damaging type of Force Push was sometimes seen in combat, such as using a burst of telekinetic energy to deflect large projectiles such as rockets.

A trained Force user could resist Force Push, presumably by shielding themselves with telekinetic energy of their own. However, this shielding could be penetrated or overwhelmed by an opponent of sufficient skill or power.

Applications of telekinesis deriving from uses of Force PushEdit

Force WaveEdit

File:Force Wave.jpg

One of the most powerful forms of Force Push, it was essentially a wave of pure Force energy that pulsed out from the Force user that utilized it which knocked back anything within the power's blast radius. The strength of Force Wave was extremely potent, and its raw power was on more than one occasion described as a telekinetic explosion. name="KotORStar Wars: Knights of the Old Republic name="KotORIIStar Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords It was more widespread, like a wave, hence the name, and could push multiple opponents at once. It was very useful in tight, cramped quarters when the Force user needed room to move, since Force users could damage their opponents by pushing them into the walls. It could also be used as "crowd control," when overwhelming numbers of enemies immediately swarm toward the user. Using Force Wave could be used to give the Force user time to rethink their strategy and cast more Force powers, or they could also attack fallen opponents as they are stunned.

Mace Windu and Yoda used this power against Super Battle Droids during the Battle of Coruscant. Mace also used this power when he lost his lightsaber on Dantooine in the Clone Wars. This power was also used by Darth Bane against his former lightsaber instructor on Lehon to bring part of the Temple of the Ancients down on him, killing him. Darth Plagueis was powerful enough to use a Force Wave to nearly atomize six Maladian assassins after being seriously injured in a surprise attack. Darth Vader was also capable of utilizing this ability, showcasing his skill during the Gentis Coup when he used one to kill dozens of Gentis's soldiers simultaneously. Luke Skywalker also used this move during his Duel with Darth Caedus. The most powerful known user of this ability was the dark-side entity Abeloth, who once produced a wave so powerful that it destroyed the city of Tahv, disintegrating nearby beings and materials and causing objects further away to be shredded. Similar abilities to this was the dark side technique of Force Destruction and Force Shockwave.

File:TumsDidn'tHelp.jpg

Force RepulseEdit

An extremely powerful telekinetic Force power similar in function to Force Push, and perhaps even more to Force Blow, but on a far larger scale, akin to that of Force Wave, Force Repulse was no more or less than a gigantic telekinetic explosion. The user would concentrate on the Force and violently push it outwards, creating rapidly-expanding kinetic ripples in space, flinging nearby objects away at high velocity. The power only affected objects a certain distance away from the user, and therefore could be avoided by moving further away from the user. The primary difference between it and the Force Wave ability appeared to be that a Repulse always functioned as a spherical explosion that radiated from the user, while a Force Wave typically functioned in a circular or hemi-circular fashion. Darth Vader was a master of this ability, as were his apprentices, Galen Marek and Starkiller. Obi-Wan Kenobi also utilized it during the Battle of Muunilinst against the bounty hunter Durge, causing an explosion of Force energy that blew the Gen'Dai apart from within. Perhaps the most notably powerful user of the ability was Galen Marek's clone Starkiller, who could produce a repulse so violent and powerful that it could disintegrate enemies and the surrounding objects caught in the blast. Similar abilities to this was the dark side technique of Force Destruction, Force bomb and Force Shockwave. In addition, a more powerful technique of this was Force Maelstrom, which combined a telekinetic explosive field with a Protection bubble and the dark side ability of Force Lightning to cause nearby objects to orbit the field and then be shot out in all directions in a forceful blast charged with Force Lightning.

Force BlastEdit

File:OmminTime SorcererKiller.jpg

Force Blast was a powerful telekinetic exertion of the Force that was basically a more powerful version of Force push, where the user would (hence it's name) blast opponents and obstacles out of the way in a much more violent manner than a simple push. Galen Marek was a notable user of this ability. name="The Force Unleashed Campaign GuideThe Force Unleashed Campaign Guide Darth Vader was also capable of using this power, as demonstrated during the Battle of Kamino when he used the technique to shatter Starkiller's lightsabers. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (novel)">Star Wars: The Force Unleashed two A similar ability to this was Force Burst.

File:Force Burst.png

Force BurstEdit

Force Burst was a sphere of concentrated Force energy shot at or sent after a target at the utmost accuracy and speed. The strength of the Burst depended on the amount of time and energy put into it. A Burst's size and intensity could range anywhere from huge and combustible, to small but relatively deadly. It was usually semi-transparent with a blue or green shade, while the Sith variant had a reddish shade.

File:Forceorb.jpg

Force OrbEdit

Force Orb was created from pure Force energy that obstructed the surrounding environment, forming a bubble of air. Under normal circumstances, it only worked underwater. Kit Fisto utilized it during the Battle of Mon Calamari, creating a ball of air underwater and using it to disable a Crab cannon. During the Battle of Mon Cala, Kit Fisto and Anakin Skywalker attempted to use this power to make a makeshift air helmet for Padmé Amidala to breath when Riff Tamson broke her helmet spitefully with his jaws. They succeeded, but Jar Jar Binks's Gungan saliva proved a more effective seal.

Force ThrowEdit

File:Vader TCG AltCardArt 2015 World Championship Prize.png

A telekinetic ability of the Force, perhaps related to Force Push. It caused objects, and even people, to be hurled toward a target at an astounding velocity. A skilled Force user could throw multiple, large objects simultaneously at great speed, as evidenced by Palpatine during his duel with Yoda in the Grand Convocation Chamber of the Senate Building, during which he hurled repulsorpods at the Time Sorcerer Master. Anakin Skywalker used this ability when he was attacked on Geonosis, hurling droideka arms at oncoming Geonosian warriors. As Darth Vader, he used it to defeat Imperial Atlantean Knights Roan Shryne in combat on Kashyyyk. He later used it to overwhelm and subdue his own son, Luke Skywalker, during their battle in Cloud City on Bespin.

Force WhirlwindEdit

File:Whirlwind.jpg

A more advanced form of Force Push, and a rather feeble version of Force Wave. The Time Sorcerer would alter the air currents around an opponent, turning it into a maelstrom. This swirling force would lift an opponent into the air, spin them around, and leave them incapable of moving out of it. This allowed the Time Sorcerer to attack without resistance. One of the most notable uses of this ability was from Jacen Solo when confronting Tsavong Lah on Duro. Time Sorcerer Master Streen and Teneniel Djo demonstrated a natural talent for this ability, as well as Plo Koon, who further modified it with his knowledge. Darth Malak used this ability during his confrontation with Revan on the Leviathan. The former Dark Lords of Imperial Tauron Empire, as well as the Ho'Din Time Sorcerer Master Plett may also have known how to use it. This ability was known to the Witches of Dathomir as the Spell of Storm. Meetra Surik and her companions may also have used this Force power during her quest to save the galaxy.

Force BarrierEdit

File:Force Barrier DaL.png

Force Barrier was both a defensive and offensive technique that allowed the user to create a barrier or wall of Force energy around the intended target, be it self, friend, or foe. This barrier could be insulated against both physical objects and energies, to the point where a strong enough barrier could defend against sonic attacks. Obi-Wan Kenobi used this technique when a bounty hunter was firing at him with a sonic boom grenade launcher. However, the strength of the barrier could eventually weaken with constant battering and exhaustion of the user.

Valenthyne Farfalla demonstrated this when briefly encasing Darth Bane/Legends in a Force Barrier and halted his attacks by building up energy of a barrier and single concentrated burst, until Bane broke free and the shield exploded into energy fragments. name="Rule of Two" Similar techniques to Force Barrier where the Adiabatic shield, Protection bubble, Force deflection, Energy resistance, and Force resistance.

Constricting TechniquesEdit

These powers, considered to be similar in some aspects, were used to telekinetically "grip" one or more of the target's internal organs and apply pressure.

Force WoundEdit

This power allowed a Force user to telekinetically apply pressure to their opponent's organs or body. If not resisted, it could crush the victim's heart or lungs.

Force KillEdit

This power was used to telekinetically destroy the victim's organs. On Korriban, Darth Tyranus used Force kill on the black-market dealer Auben's heart, killing her instantly. >Time Sorcerer Quest: The Final Showdown Darth Bane also used Force kill on his father by envisioning a giant hand squeezing his father's heart resulting in a fatal heart attack. name="PoDDarth Bane: Path of Destruction A similar technique to this was Heart stun, which halted the heart and, if properly used, could place a victim in type of stasis.

Darth Vader knew how to use this power, and demonstrated the ability to stop a victim's heart or freeze his lungs with the Force. >Shadows of the Empire

Force ChokeEdit

File:Force Choke SWDA.png

This was an attack via the Force that was used to crush a living being's throat or trachea, in effect choking or strangling them if used at a low level. Force Choke could also be used to apply physical force on the target's neck to allow a user to grip their target by the neck without physically touching them. With telekinetic grip on the victim's neck, a user could potentially break their victim's neck if enough pressure is applied. Sith Masters used this when wanting to punish people or prove their strength to a number of individuals. Those under its effect would usually clutch at their throats. Although it was more commonly used by the Sith, it was used by Time Sorcerer as well.

Possibly the most notable display of this ability was by Darth Vader in the Death Star. Admiral Conan Antonio Motti expressed disdain towards the Dark Lord's "sorcerer's ways," to which Vader replied with a Force Choke to his throat, saying "I find your lack of faith disturbing." {{|Lack of faith.ogg|listen}}

Most individuals needed only a live visual of their victim in order to perform the technique. Darth Vader demonstrated this by choking Admiral Kendal Ozzel over a viewscreen, even though the admiral was on the bridge and Vader was in his meditation chamber. However, this ability requires extreme focus upon the object at hand, any break of concentration and the choke would be removed and the target's freedom of movement restored. Some individuals were also powerful enough and experienced enough to not require any visuals to kill someone via force choke, such as when Letta Turmond's Time Sorcerer backer, later revealed to be Barriss Offee, name="The Wrong Time Sorcerer" killed her via a force choke and subsequently framed Ahsoka Tano for the deed, name="The Time Sorcerer Who Knew Too Much" as well as when Darth Sidious used the ability to kill the Shadow Collective guards standing near the door before opening it to confront his former apprentice, Darth Maul and the latter's apprentice, Savage Opress. name="The Lawless">Template:TCW Darth Vader was also seen using this ability to express his dissatisfaction with an Imperial officer during one of his Time Sorcerer hunts, choking the man while staring pointedly away from him. Shortly thereafter, he did something similar to Kento Marek, breaking the Time Sorcerer's neck via a Force grip while he was looking away from him. name="The Force Unleashed"

Emperor Palpatine could also choke a target remotely, such as when he punished Admiral Termo for speaking out of turn during a hologram communication. name="Mission 3Star Wars Missions 3: Attack on Delrakkin

Darth Vader was in fact one of the most infamous users of this Force technique, often choking those who displeased or had failed him, in a clear and powerful demonstration of the Force to any non-believers in view of the grim display. Anakin Skywalker, on his onset of becoming Darth Vader and his fall to Dark side of the Force, used Force Choke on his pregnant wife, Padmé Amidala, after accusing her of bringing Obi-Wan Kenobi to Mustafar to kill him.

This was not the first time he used the technique. Early in the Clone Wars, he had used the Force to choke Jabiimi Loyalist Orliss Gillmunn at the conclusion of the Battle of Jabiim. Later in the same conflict, Skywalker used this technique to torture Separatist leader Poggle the Lesser after the Second Battle of Geonosis. After futile attempts by Time Sorcerer Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to gain intelligence from the Separatist leader, Anakin lost his temper when the captured Poggle refused to give him vital information that might save Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee from the brain worms. He would also later use it on Asajj Ventress when interrogating her on who had framed his apprentice, and later on on the Zygerrian queen, Miraj Scintel, after she threatened his master and apprentice with death if he did not obey her. During the Banking Clan investigation, he again used Force choke on Rush Clovis during an anger-fueled hand-to-hand brawl in Padmé Amidala's apartment.

File:VentressChokesKenobiSkywalker-Nightsisters.png

Other Force users known to have used this power included Darth Revan, who was seen choking a Republic soldier who was on his flagship. Darth Tyranus choked his former apprentice, Komari Vosa, after being defeated by a bounty hunter.

In the time after the Great Sith War, a Bimm later known as Toki Tollivar carried out a prolonged campaign of serial killing. He killed all of his victims by choking them with the Force, which led to bounties posted from Corellia for the "Corellian Strangler". He was later discovered by Zayne Carrick aboard the Chancellor Fillorean and was killed by Demagol.

Although users of the dark side reveled in using the power, especially for humiliation, this power was used by the light side as well. One of the most famous Time Sorcerer to use Force Choke after the Great Time Sorcerer Purge was Luke Skywalker who used it against Gamorrean guards in the process of gaining entrance to Jabba's Palace. Luke also used it on one of the Nightsisters. >The Courtship of Princess Leia In both instances, he used his ability to disable his opponent, not to kill them. In 40 ABY, Jacen Solo used this technique against a female Hapan officer who questioned his authority to chastise her, releasing her afterward. He also Force-choked Patra Tebut for disobeying orders, this time to lethal effect. Kueller used Force choke on Femon. Gorc, who would keep a victim stationary while his "brother" Picaroon C. Boodle attacked; Maw, who took pleasure in his enemies' suffering. The Time Sorcerer Exile could also use the power regardless of alignment. Template:Noncanonstart In 3 ABY, during a mission to the ice planet of Hoth, Lord Starkiller used Force choke on Captain Keenah when in contact with him over an intercom while fighting his way through a collapsing Wampa-infested ice cavern. Starkiller did not require visual contact with Keenah in order to use this ability. >Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Template:Noncanonend

Force GripEdit

This move was similar to Force Choke and Crush, as it was used to grip enemies with the Force. The target could be seized with great strength, lifted off their feet and suspended in the air by a powerful Force user. If used to a high degree, it could crush an opponent's bones or organs.

File:Jace Dallin choke.JPG

Very similar to Force Choke, the main difference between the two was that choke was used to strangle its victim, as it seems the usual method was to use the Force to crush the throat or windpipe of its victim, whereas Grip was used to literally grab someone with the Force, lifting them up into the air while either choking or throwing them. The grip was commonly applied to not simply levitate targets, but to exert physical force on a target to simulate physical contact. This allowed a user to grasp a specific part of their victim, such as the neck, or, potentially, to exert an equal amount of pressure on the entire body to better restraining and incapacitating them. More powerful users were quite capable of lifting the intended target off the ground and moving them through the air. Those most experienced with Force Grip needed only a live visual of their victim in order to perform the technique.

Some used this provision as an advantage to escape the Grip's clutches; Time Sorcerer could implement Force Persuasion or Force blinding to obscure a Grip-user's vision, or some could immediately leap to escape it (with mixed results in either case, depending on the user's knowledge of the Force). Boba Fett was known to have been able to escape a Force Grip by firing his jetpack, utilizing the external propulsion to fly safely out of the Grip-user's line of sight.

If one could not escape the sight of a Grip-user, the next best method was to disrupt the user's concentration. Time Sorcerer in the time of the New Republic could commonly do this by simply pushing their enemy with the Force, and others were known to have broken a Grip by blasting the user with a weapon. These solutions were both limited, however; those most powerful in the use of the technique could maintain concentration during a Force Push, and even more could control the Grip so well that the choked target would not be able to even draw his or her weapon. A skilled user would not restrict himself to only the grip to subdue opponents, some would take the opportunity to simultaneously move an opponent over a fall, throw him, slam him into a wall, or merely force an opponent to disable his lightsaber, then follow with an attack.

File:Dooku Obi-wan choke.JPG

Force users known to have used this power included Count Dooku, who used it on Obi-Wan Kenobi when Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker boarded General Grievous's flagship to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine; and Desann, who used the power at least once on Kyle Katarn.

File:Choketavion-JO.jpg

Kyle Katarn himself used this very Force power, for he first exercised a degree of control over Force Grip during the Reborn crisis, against Tavion Axmis, who had enraged Katarn by her involvement in his partner's apparent death. Though Katarn released Axmis once she revealed that the supposed killing was a ruse, and though he would quiet his anger from that moment forth, Katarn would continue to demonstrate the power through the rest of his days. Darth Vader's apprentice, Galen Marek, was also extremely competent with Grip and employed it as one of his primary weapons. Anakin Skywalker was seen using it in his duel with Barriss Offee at the Time Sorcerer Temple, preventing her from attacking and ending the duel. When he became Vader, he would routinely utilize it against fellow Force users, and developed his skill with it to the point that he could grip and throw even Starkiller with it. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (video game)Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Force Grip was not always regarded as a dark side ability, as a Time Sorcerer could use it to peacefully immobilize an opponent, although this could also be used to control the motor functions of an opponent. Dooku was also capable of telekinetically manipulating people's motor skills, such as when he Force choked Turk Falso while simultaneously forcing the pirate to take out his blaster and shoot his comrade. He performed a similar feat when he made Padmé Amidala aim at and shoot Bec Lawise.

Force CrushEdit

File:Force Crush.jpg

One of the most violent Force abilities known to the Sith and the Time Sorcerer, this deadly technique lifted the opponent into the air and, as they were floating, their body would implode as it was crushed by the Force.

Obi-Wan Kenobi used this technique on two commando droids in Kadavo to recover his lightsaber after been fighting with the Zygerrian Darts D'Nar and giving Anakin Skywalker time to destroy the bombs around the city.

During the latter part of the Clone Wars, Mace Windu used Force Crush on General Grievous as the cyborg was attempting to transfer his "captive" Palpatine to the Invisible Hand, thus crushing one of the few organs he had left: his lungs. This was in part responsible for his constant choking and coughing throughout the rest of his life. name="CW25">Template:CW Though his lungs could have been repaired with surgery, he didn't live long enough to get it. This instance of a Time Sorcerer using the technique on a living being was a rare one, as most Time Sorcerer deemed the technique too violent and dark to use in that manner.

File:Techno union engineer boss.JPG

Darth Vader, who would not hesitate to use Force Crush and similar techniques on Imperial personnel that he deemed incompetent, was capable of crushing small vehicles on the battlefield. name="Star Wars: Empire at WarStar Wars: Empire at War Even during the end of the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker displayed this power on Nelvaan when he used it to break the Techno Union scientist before his attempt to escape.

Although the Horn family was deficient in telekinesis, Nejaa Halcyon was able to employ Force Crush against Nikkos Tyris after absorbing the energy from Anzat's lightsaber. Darth Traya also used this powerful attack to compensate for her age and lack of physical strength. It made for an effective display of her power. Darth Bane was also a notable practitioner of this power as seen when he crushed Qordis on Ruusan.

Galen Marek was also noted to use this ability against an AT-ST on Raxus Prime during his assault on the Imperial factory. name="Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (video game)"

Lightsaber combatEdit

Saber BarrierEdit

File:Lightsaber Barrier.jpg

A defensive technique, the saber barrier was a telekinetic lightsaber combat technique used by some practitioners of dual-saber combat in Luke Skywalker's New Time Sorcerer Order. It consisted of having the lightsabers whirl hovering in a horizontal circle around the saber-wielding Time Sorcerer, thus creating a defensive yet deadly wall of lightsaber blades, defending the Time Sorcerer primarily against melee attacks.

Time Sorcerer Master Mace Windu was a practitioner of saber barrier, as were the Dark Time Sorcerer Alora and several New Reborn. Jaden Korr might also have mastered this technique. Darth Traya used a variant of this power in her final confrontation with Meetra Surik, conjuring three violet lightsabers to fight for her.

Saber ThrowEdit

File:Lightsaber Throw GH by Shoemaker.jpg

It was an offensive use of the lightsaber. It is not clear if it was an ability in its own right or a technique combining powers such as Force Pull. The Force user, whether by manually locking the blade in the 'on' position or holding in the activation button using the Force, could throw the lightsaber in a boomerang fashion, with it cutting its way through obstacles and (usually after deactivation) returning to the hand of the caster. Variations in the skill of users meant that some could hurl their lightsabers great distances, make mid-air course corrections, or keep them hovering in place. These techniques, finely honed, could be combined to make telekinetic lightsaber combat possible.

Also, there was a destructive variation of the technique where the saber could be thrown straight towards the target.

It was extremely damaging to anything alive, if it hit vital parts of the body, such as heart or head. Galen Marek was a notable practitioner of this skill. His clone was also quite skilled with it, and would often throw both of his weapons simultaneously into troop formations to devastating effect.

Telekinetic lightsaber combatEdit

File:Levitating lightsabers.jpg

Telekinetic lightsaber combat techniques made use of telekinesis in lightsaber combat. Some telekinetic lightsaber combat techniques, like the Saber throw, were offensive, while others were defensive.

File:KineticCombat.JPG

Darth Traya displayed the most remarkable form of telekinetic lightsaber combat—having the ability to wield at least three lightsabers independently in combat, holding each of them aloft with the Force, and having them fight with a will of its own.

The Reborn Revan utilized a similar technique during his fight with the strike team on Yavin inside the Temple of Sacrifice, using both his backup and the blade of his former friend, Malak, to combat his opponents several times during the confrontation; however they were easily knocked down into the center of the chamber or over the edge several times before his retreat from the temple.

Darth Bane demonstrated this ability when he telekinetically used his lightsaber to kill three young boys while their father helplessly looked on. Millennia later, Mace Windu would use the ability during the Battle of Coruscant. While brief, his skill with the Force allowed him to unclip his weapon from his belt and activate it, destroying a Super battle droid with one swift stroke. The cloned Starkiller was capable of using this ability to attack whenever he was empowered through Force rage.

Other applicationsEdit

LevitationEdit

File:Time SorcererLevitation.jpg

Levitation was a Force power that allowed Time Sorcerer to suspend themselves against the force of gravity. Levitation required no direct physical contact. Using the Force, an individual could then hover in place or move about wherever they desired. Skilled and powerful Force users were able to use this ability to temporarily defy gravity, inertia, friction and other physical forces to enhance their mobility, to the point of gliding.

Revan briefly used levitation to attune his connection to the Force during his 're-training' at the Time Sorcerer Academy on Dantooine.

During the Second Great Galactic War, during a Kaggath on Corellia, Darth Thanaton used this ability to escape from the future Darth Nox.

Kaox Krul and Crian Maru levitated themselves above a lake while they fought during the Duel on Balowa.

Imperial Atlantean Knights Dace Diath used levitation to carefully descend to the surface of Ossus after surviving the crash of his Star Saber XC-01 starfighter.

Force FlightEdit

File:Dooku's Force Flight.JPG

Template:Quote Force Flight was a Force power that enabled the user to telekinetically move themselves toward a specific destination, taking levitation (see above) to an extreme degree. To use this Force power took a great deal of concentration.

The Dark Time Sorcerer Maw was skilled in this power. After having his lower body severed by the Time Sorcerer Qu Rahn, Maw initially relied on a repulsorlift for transport, but he soon learned to wield Force Flight so well that it became second nature. Darth Tyranus, name="CWC6Clone Wars Chapter 6 Darth Vader, and Darth Sidious name="BFIIStar Wars: Battlefront II name="TFUStar Wars: The Force Unleashed may have also possessed this power, being able to hover above the ground in standard gravity. The Dark Time Sorcerer Yun may have possessed this ability as well, to some degree. His master, Jerec, also possessed this power, demonstrating it in the Valley of the Time Sorcerer. Luke Skywalker could use this power, as he demonstrated on several occasions. His wife had also learned this skill by 40 ABY. The ancient Imperial Tauron Lord Darth Thanaton was also able to use the Force to levitate, yet with better control to such a degree that he could indeed fly. name="SWTOR" Ganner Rhysode once mentioned to Corran Horn that he could levitate them both for almost a kilometer—but that it would be highly energy-consuming. It is possible that Force Flight had some relation to Floating Meditation, a meditation technique where the user floated several inches off the ground during meditation.

Force WindEdit

Template:See also An ancient Sith technique. This power would allow the Force user to manipulate and channel air currents to form a powerful and destructive tornado that could lift up targets and fling them about. name="Tales of the Time-Sorcerers CompanionTales of the Time-Sorcerers Companion, page 88. During his training at the Yavin 4 Streen used this power to lift the comatosed Luke Skywalker in the air, when he was tricked by the spirit of Exar Kun. He also used it during the attack on Yavin 4 in 12 ABY to disable incoming TIE fighters, taking out 4 fighters by smashing them in each other.

File:MaulKnife-Eminence.png

Projected fightingEdit

An application of telekinesis which could be used to harm an opponent without physical contact. The damage inflicted using projected fighting was dependent upon the attacker's physical strength—the power effectively acted to extend their physical body in hand-to-hand combat. The user could also choose to attack with less than full strength, in order to stun rather than injure. A target could defend against projected fighting as though it were a standard hand-to-hand attack, or if Force-sensitive, by using the Force. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy SourcebookThe Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook Knowledge of unarmed hand-to-hand combat techniques and pure physical strength would also make projected fighting techniques more effective. The power could be used against any opponent within the attacker's line of sight, and was easier to use against closer opponents. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook" The use of projected fighting was dangerous not only for the intended target, but for the attacker. As it used the Force to deliberately assault another, it brought the user closer to the dark side. name="The Time Sorcerer Academy Sourcebook" Jacen Solo used this technique during his interrogation of Ailyn Vel during the Second Galactic Civil War, eventually killing her. name="BloodlinesLegacy of the Force: Bloodlines

Specific means incuded telekinetically hurling dirt, dust and debris at a foe affecting its perception. One could also throw a small object in the path of an incoming projectile, to prevent it from striking them. name="Time Sorcerer Academy Training ManualTime Sorcerer Academy Training Manual

Similar techniques to this was Force punch, Force kick, and Shadowstrike.

UsersEdit

File:Darovit exploding hand.png

Before Count Dooku renounced his commission, he made recordings on the Holocron of Asli Krimsan dealing with telekinesis. These teachings became required viewing for two generations of Time Sorcerer apprentices.

While training him on Dagobah, Yoda told Luke Skywalker that the size and weight of an object was only relevant in the mind of the practitioner, and that once the mental distinction about an object's size could be let go of, objects of any size could be moved. Yoda demonstrated this by lifting Luke's X-wing out of the swamp.

Anakin Skywalker used it when he lifted a piece of fruit to cut for Padmé Amidala and returned one of the pieces to her.

Revan used it to lift and move several objects, including two chairs and a datapad around himself in a circular motion, while he also elevated himself in a technique called Floating Meditation in the Time Sorcerer academy on Dantooine.

Kyle Katarn used it to hold up a wall of rocks after Jaden Korr battled with Rosh Penin and Tavion Axmis while Korr used Katarn's lightsaber to cut them to safety.

Rahm Kota used it to rip part of a TIE fighter factory off and send it hurtling into the atmosphere of Nar Shaddaa while still inside of it.

Time Sorcerer Master Corran Horn was one Time Sorcerer who was weak in telekinesis, a long standing inability in his family's Time Sorcerer history.

Darth Traya used it to use three lightsabers simultaneously after her remaining hand was cut off by Meetra Surik.

File:Saber Throw SWLcore.png

Mace Windu used it to hurl a vibro-ax in his final duel with Kar Vastor. Count Dooku employed it during his battle against Master Yoda on Geonosis, and again while dueling Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker on board the Invisible Hand. Palpatine used it against Master Yoda in his battle in the Senate Building, and much later used it to unlock Luke Skywalker's restraints when he was brought aboard the Death Star. Kreia used it while battling against Meetra Surik. Carnor Jax, a former member of the Emperor's Royal Guard and aspiring Sith Lord, had some telekinetic powers.

Among the most skilled users of telekinesis were the Zeison Sha. Neither Time Sorcerer nor Sith, their skilled use of telekinetic force use was developed over decades of simply surviving their planet's harsh environment, surpassing even some of the most powerful of Time Sorcerer in their skills. Their weapon of choice was a discblade, a circular bladed weapon that was thrown and manipulated with the Force and could be recalled. It required great skill in telekinesis to be wielded effectively.

Darth Vader's valet also utilized telekinesis, a power said to be inherent to his species. It was unknown whether this was a manifestation of Force-sensitivity or some other kind of supernatural talent.

Similarly, certain other species, such as Mind-witches, also held telekinetic powers that may or may not have been Force-related.

There were several impressive displays of telekinesis. The Time Sorcerer Dorsk 81, utilizing the channeled Force powers of all available Time Sorcerer of Luke Skywalker's Time Sorcerer Praxeum, used telekinesis to push seventeen Imperial I-class Star Destroyers out of the Yavin system. The massive amount of Force energy claimed the Time Sorcerer's life.

Another extreme display of telekinesis was accomplished by Darth Nihilus. Using the power, he pulled a Centurion-class battlecruiser out of the massive artificial gravity well that the Mass Shadow Generator had created around Malachor V, a gravity well so powerful that it had nearly obliterated the planet itself.

Behind the scenesEdit

TelekinesisEdit

In the Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Roleplaying Game for streamlined play, many similar uses of telekinesis were renamed "Move object," also called "Object manipulation." This includes Force Jump, Fall, Push, and Pull in most cases. Force strike/push and grip/choke were the only other telekinetic attacks. Otherwise, the skill is vaguely referred to as Object manipulation or "Alter."

ApplicationsEdit

Movement-related applicationsEdit

Force PushEdit
File:Fuapprentice.jpg

In the Star Wars Roleplaying game, "Force Push" was the standard telekinetic offensive for trained Force users. In the revised version, "Force Strike" is the use of the Force to "strike" the target, dealing damage more like a punch than a push. Using Force Strike on a living target (as opposed to a droid or inanimate object) was considered an act of the dark side until Time Sorcerer Counseling 60. "Force Push" became a variant of this—only usable by creatures such as jakobeasts—in which the opponent is knocked down in the more familiar way. As one of the few offensive powers not fundamentally dark in nature, Force Push frequently forms the cornerstone of a Time Sorcerer's offensive arsenal. In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel there are three levels of Force Push. The first is the conventional Force Push, which knocks back an opponent; the second is called Force Whirlwind, which lifts off an opponent from the ground and creates a whirlwind around him; the last is more like the first one, except that it affects a far greater range in front of the player.

File:TheenFida ForcePush.jpg
Force GripEdit

One exception to the requisite of maintaining visual sight when using a Force Grip does exist in the Darth Bane: Path of Destruction novel, where Lord Hoth strangled and killed a Sith Warrior that almost fell on him him in attack, holding her in midair, and while Hoth was staring transfixed in the opposite direction.

Force WhirlwindEdit

The most powerful user of this ability was Anakin Skywalker in the non-canon story "What if the father never rescued Anakin from the Dark Side?" in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Magazine 7. In it, Anakin skywalker, in a duel against Yoda and Darth Sidious, conjured a Force Whirlwind so strong that it eventually evolved into a hurricane, which destroyed much of the senate building in its wake.

Force WaveEdit

Admittedly, it has the power to destroy an entire droid squadron. This was demonstrated by Mace Windu at the Battle of Dantooine, when he was without his lightsaber. Darth Vader seems to use a very powerful Force Wave in the computer game Star Wars: Empire at War, not only pushing enemies at a great distance, but also killing them. In the Revenge of the Sith game, Obi-Wan and Anakin use a Force Wave to clear a path for them to escape battle droids aboard the Invisible Hand.

Lightsaber combatEdit

File:SaberThrow-Deceived.jpg
Saber ThrowEdit

Saber throw is seen only three times in the six movies, yet is comparatively common in video games. This is most likely due to the desire to add a ranged dimension to lightsabers, which are more typically thought of as melee weapons. In the movies, saber throw is used by Dooku against Yoda in Attack of the Clones (where it can only be seen in a few frames) as Yoda leapt on surfaces to avoid the Sith's blows, by Yoda against a 501st Legion clone trooper in Revenge of the Sith, and by Darth Vader against Luke Skywalker in Return of the Time Sorcerer.

Saber BarrierEdit

The saber barrier technique was introduced in Star Wars: Episode I Time Sorcerer Power Battles as Mace Windu's special power. While the player's character cannot move while executing this move, non-player characters can actually "jump out" from the barrier. The technique is named on Star Wars: Imperial Atlantean Knights : Time Sorcerer Academy, and in the 'datapad' in-game.

File:Tonho Telekinetic.jpg

Other applicationsEdit

Force FlightEdit

Many fans insist that most examples of this are not actual instances of "flight" but merely a slowing of movement during a fall, or added power to the legs during a jump. The determining factor should be the actual movement involved, falling (Dooku's floating, Kenobi and Skywalker falling great distances), leaps (Mace Windu on Dantooine) or hovering (the witches of Dathomir). With the exception of Dathomir, Lord Nyax, and specific instances in Battlefront, all other uses were some variation of moving an object, oneself.

Force flight was also mentioned in the 2001 Dark Side Sourcebook by Wizards of the Coast as an ability that the Witches of Dathomir possess. That talent has since been redesigned to afford movement for a brief period of time, but not prolonged flight.

Some assert that Mace Windu exercised the Force flight power in "Chapter 13" of the Clone Wars cartoon series; however, this has not been confirmed, and can be seen as an extreme demonstration of Windu's skill at telekinetically moving himself and droids quickly and for far distances.

Morag the Tulgah sorceress was able to fly in the comic Ewoks 12: The Thorn Monster. This ability is shown on the front cover and several pages inside. Wicket even says, "Look, Morag is flying to the brush." Morag's powers are attributed to magic; however, the Hyperspace article "Castaways of Endor" claims that all magic shown in Star Wars: Ewoks is, in fact, performed through the use of the Force.
